Rating History

Star Wars: The Last Jedi
16 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Hateful movie. Seems like the director was deliberately trying to troll and piss off the fans. And he succeeded. A scorched earth policy to destroy all beloved star wars lore, and turning luke skywalker into a hated character. Bravo.

Battlestar Galactica
16 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Holds up well even after multiple rewatches. Campy but engaging, and seldom forgets that serialized TV series are all about the characters. And what glorious characters we have here, James Colicos as an over the top baltar, managing to portray a true evil villain without getting campy. Dirk Bendict as the cigar chomping overconfident starbuck. Lorne Greene as the fatherly leader Adama. Charismatic patrick macnee as the mysterious count iblis. I could go on and on. The only downside is the heavy and obvious re-use of effects cuts.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens
16 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Light hearted retelling of 1977's episode IV. Not normally a fan of JJ Abrams work but he does a good job here. Ignore the numerous plot holes and enjoy it for what it is, celebrating many of the elements which made the original 80s star wars films such a joy to experience.

2010 (1984)

Suprisingly good. Solid cast and acting. Especially loved Roy Scheider's performance. First rate effects especially for 1984. Peter Hyams was an excellent choice to direct this movie. The reapparance of dullea as dave bowman is super creepy and well done. They also manage to portray HAL as a sympathetic character. The movie does deviate from the book but does it in intelligent ways and manages to keep an engaging and coherent story.
