    Honey I Blew Up the Kid

    ★★½

    I need somebody to edit Godzilla into this baby’s STAT.

    Yeah I dunno, Honey I Blew Up the Baby isn’t the worst thing I’ve seen, but it’s not that good either. The film feels like it was plotted out purely based around the gags the filmmakers thought of. Rick Moranis was good and the kid’s pretty adorable, but nothing was too outstanding. For 1992, most of the visual effects weren’t awful. Middle of the road right here. At least it was a quick watch.

    Bad Boys II

    ★★★★

    Damn, on the second time around, the first Bad Boys wasn’t as good I remember, but Bad Boys II was a helluva lot better!

    ½

    Now THIS is the kind of movie I was hoping to watch when I applied for film school!

    Messy, convoluted, bootleg Matrix aesthetics, a really stinky movie. There was just this one person in the movie who decided to replace their feet with hands? They were the only one and tried to play it off as if it was the "new thing?" God it was embarrassing. There's a cool twist in the movie and that's basically the only thing that go me interested. Stinky movie, never try to adapt crazy animes that aired on MTV at 3am into live action films.
