36. The Meddler

I had very little of an idea of what to expect out of The Meddler.  I chose to see it as part of my 2016 March to 100 because of the solid reviews, Rose Byrne, and J.K. Simmons (have you seen Whiplash?  If not, see Whiplash right now and get owned by J.K. Simmons.). That's... Continue Reading →

35. Love & Friendship

I think my favorite vampire in all of fiction is Kate Beckinsale's Selene from the Underworld series.  (My favorite vampire in all of real life is Rupert Murdoch.)  I like to pretend that Kate Beckinsale is always playing Selene.  In movies without Underworld in the title, I just think that she's undercover for some reason...

34. Alice Through the Looking Glass

Johnny Depp kind of annoys the crap out of me.  I don't think he's untalented.  I don't think he's a bad person.  I don't hate him or wish him ill will.  But I think he has come to rely more on over-the-top zaniness than actual acting.  He can act.  He just chooses not to, more often...

33.  X-Men: Apocalypse

Being the comic book aficionado that I am, I generally try (and succeed) to remain positive going into each new adaptation that hits theaters.  With X-Men: Apocalypse, though, I went it with some trepidation. While they have performed better with Marvel adaptations - at least critically, if not financially - than Sony, Fox's efforts have... Continue Reading →

32.  The Nice Guys

Right off the bat, here, I want to say that the marketing department gets a huge win for The Nice Guys.  I'm not a fan of much of anything from the seventies.  I don't like the clothes.  I don't like the cars.  I don't like the hair.  I don't like the vernacular.  I don't like...

31. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

Confession time: I didn't see the original Neighbors until five days ago.  I wasn't specifically avoiding it.  I just never got around to it.  But upon seeing the trailers for Neighbors 2, which I found fantastic, I made an effort to catch the first one before tonight.  I didn't regret it.  I knew that Seth...

30. The Darkness

I've got to say, I'm perfectly fine with filling out my 100 2016 movies with a bunch of low-budget horror films.  They aren't all great, but I usually enjoy them on some level, and I always appreciate looking at the supernatural and/or darker aspects of our world through someone else's lens. When I saw Kevin... Continue Reading →

29. Money Monster

Another George Clooney movie means that I'm there!  I haven't always been that way regarding George.  I've always thought he was talented, but he wasn't must-see for me until relatively recently, when he put out The Descendants.  I was also a huge fan of Up In The Air.  One of those two would be my...

28. Green Room

I wasn't sure I was going to get to see Green Room in the theater, but I managed to get a chance, today.  My schedule has been tight, lately (my chance to see Hardcore Henry has already passed me by), but this one has been on my radar for a while, so I wanted to catch it while I...
