  • The Lion King

    The Lion King

    ★★

    Pretty pointless shot for shot, word for word remake. The movie looks great but that’s about it.

  • The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb

    The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb

    ★★★

    Appropriately spooky mummy makeup. Slow start but worth the wait for the mummy mayhems.

  • Crawl

    Crawl

    ★★★★

    Father, daughter and dog vs. viscous alligators in the middle of a hurricane.  This was a fun creature feature full of startling jumps.

  • Killer Shark

    Killer Shark

    ★★

    A college student learns the hard way that being a shark hunter is not easy.

  • The Beach of Nazaré

    The Beach of Nazaré

    ★★

    Interesting short documentary of a village in Portugal.

  • Sharks' Treasure

    Sharks' Treasure

    ★★

    A group of treasure hunters face peril from sharks, pirates and being adrift at sea. Filled with a lot of arguments and stock footage.

  • Skyscraper

    Skyscraper

    ★★

    Die Hard with the Rock.

  • Geostorm

    Geostorm

    ★½

    Liberal propaganda disguised as a disaster movie.

  • Monster Island

    Monster Island

    ½

    Probably 95% of the movie consists of people sitting in a room talking. So disappointing. I expect mass destruction from a giant monster movie.

  • Pandemonium

    Pandemonium

    ★★★

    Silly early 80’s horror comedy. Decent cast of characters with quite a few laughs and inventive killings.

  • The Amazing Transparent Man

    The Amazing Transparent Man

    ★★★

    “There’s a man who has unlocked every door except the one to his own soul.”

  • The Flame Barrier

    The Flame Barrier

    ★★½

    Mostly a jungle trek with a little sci fi thrown in at the end.  Enjoyable but nothing to get excited about.
