Kicking & Screaming - The Will Ferrell one. I probably should have watched the Noah Baumbach one. (hulu)

It Happened on 5th Avenue - This is one of the Christmas movies that HBO Max had listed. It's not really a Christmas movie but rather just a movie that has a Christmas scene in it. It was ok. (HBO Max)

Lethal Weapon - I rotate some of the Shane Black Christmas movies so this gets rewatched every few years. Nothing puts me in the holiday spirit more than Martin Riggs with a gun in his mouth while Bugs Bunny's Looney Christmas Tales plays in the background. As Mr. Joshua says, "It's God Damn Christmas!" There was an issue with the sound on HBO Max so...(Blu-ray)

Tintorera: Killer Shark (1977) — All around boring sexploitation film that isn't all that sleazy (though plenty of nudity, but everything was rather tame) though I guess props to some of the underwater photography and gore effects when the Jaws portion of the film, which only makes up maybe 10% of the film, is on-screen. Did make me sqeamish seeing real life fish and sharks being killed for a film like this.

From what I read, there is apparently a two-hour version, I cannot imagine sitting through that, 87-minutes was a tough sit for me. Frankly there's very little redeeming. */*****

It was on Showtime

Did not know if it wanted to be a comedy or drama and then ends up as a horror movie towards the end.

It is unbelievable this was based on a true story.

I don't know what your "sound issue" was but my big problem with HBO Max is that half the time the "5.1" sound doesn't register with my system and it's "basic stereo" for lack of a better term.

I could only get sound out of the front channels. When I went to go get the Blu-ray I rewatched the Jingle Bell Rock opening so I could get the full effect that I wanted.

Trapped in Paradise - Saw this around the time it came out. Time has not improved it. Having watched it a second time the only real question is who gives the worst performance. Lovitz once referred to this movie as "Trapped in Shit". (HBO Max)

Another Round...Fantastic. Absolutely and without hesitation a fantastic movie. Fun, funny, exhilarating, heart-breaking.

the experiment of the four men just swept me like no other movie this year. i was just smiling most of the way. a terrific emotional ride and if you like Mads Mikkelsen even a bit, you're going to love him that much more. he was the center, the heart.

you feel it all, from the ups and downs to the ups again. that ending had me giddy and saw Mads like i've never seen him before. he has always played characters that were stoic, with little emotion (Casino Royale, Arctic, Valhalla Rising), but always with potence and gravitas and he always conveyed in face and expression. in this one he showed every emotion in every way right to the very end.

this movie encapsulates what foreign films do best, and that is tell stories about people and emotions in a way that seems to elude some American film makers. this is one that deserves some consideration come Oscar time, but i fear it won't. i hope to hell i am dead wrong. this was just a pure, enjoyable, incredible, emotional roller coaster of a film.

Wonder Woman - The last film to watch before I travel two hours out of state just so I can go see the sequel on an IMAX screen. (MA)

Gremlins - I realized when I started this that it had been years since I had seen it. Infamous speech aside, Phoebe Cates was (and is) such a beautiful woman. The movie gets a little too silly when the town gets infected. (MA)

Babes in Toyland (1961) - This was on some Christmas movie lists. It's really only a Christmas movie for the last two minutes. Ed Wynn is always good for a few laughs, but for the movie....meh. (Disney+)

Watched it last night. Worthy film. Clooney shines. Makes a good trilogy with Ad Astra & Aniara.

Snowpiercer. I put it in the queue because I saw it on a list of good science fiction movies of the 21st century. It took me about five minutes to realize that the science is absurd and that it's an allegory. For the next hour, Mrs Danger pointed out absurdities, and I would respond, "Allegory."

The movie is an allegory about social inequality. The poor in the rear carriages of a giant train eat goop, wear rags, and are kept in place by brutal police. The rich live in splendor in the front carriages of the train, partying and doing drugs. There is no one else because an environmental disaster killed the rest of humanity. Criticizing the movie as an allegory, the people in the rear carriages didn't seem to do anything but eat and sleep. A better critique of inequality would have them working all the time, like Morlocks, while the only upper classes don't do anything. We liked the idea that this society's idea of progress is driving a train forward, ever forward, in a circle around a dead iceball world.

I especially liked the final twist, that even in the highest class carriage of all, there is another horror.

It will never make anyone's list of great movies, but it was entertaining and it cheered up Mrs Danger for a couple of hours.

It premiered on HBO

I thought it was hilarious and anything with Gillian Jacobs is worth seeing.

First thought it was Mark Duplas in the poster

Holiday Inn - I thought I had seen this before, but having watched now I'm not so sure. Lots of great Irving Berlin songs, but the movie doesn't seem to think much of women, and that blackface number is sure something. (VUDU)

Christmas in Connecticut - Another movie I had never seen before. I thought it was an enjoyable screwball Christmas comedy. (Christmas Tales)

Office Christmas Party - Rewatch. It has it's moments. The TJ Miller era has since ended. (iTunes)

The Man Who Invented Christmas - Exaggerated tale on how Dickens wrote the Christmas Carol. I thought it was entertaining. (MA)

Black Christmas - I saw the 2019 film in the theaters last year, but this was my first watch of the original. Certainly given how many similar movies have been made since this movie first came out, it's hard to view as originally intended. Olivia Hussey is a beautiful woman, but I thought casting her and her accent as a sorority girl was odd, especially for 1974. Kidder was fun for awhile. (VUDU)

Stone Cold (1991)

Coming from an era where Action films were a dime-a-dozen, this one still manages to be a whole lot of fun, due to how absurd it gets through its 95-minute run-time.

Fantastic performances from both Lance Henriksen & William Forsythe help anchor this one down.

Robocop (1987)

Is there anything new that needs to be said about this film. It's awesome. Love it.

Blood Games (1990)

There's a fun film in the last 35-minutes but it's hard to get to due to nauseating repetition & a meandering sense of pacing.

Robot Ninja (1989)

Your mileage with this film solely depends on your affinity (or lack of) for DTV films.

While I enjoyed the gore as well as a few of the more campier scenes, I'd put this one below Director J.R. Bookwalter's film from the same year, The Dead Next Door.

You'd think a film like this would go ape-shit on its core concept but it loses a lot of steam in the final 2/3rds of its run-time.

Nocturne (2020)

Though I didn't hate it nearly as much as one of the other films under the Welcome To The Blumhouse banner (The Lie) I felt it was very run-of-the-mill.

Sydney Sweeney is solid, as is the film's Cinematography and Music but the entire film is too predictable as well as sorely lacking scares.

Evil Eye (2020)

The premise is neat, the casting fairly solid but even then, the film is stretched pretty far.

It also lacks a consistent & high threat level to make the final act really zing.

The Bishop's Wife - Cary Grant was charming. That counts for a lot. (HBO Max)

Cool Runnings - This slipped through the cracks so I had never seen it before, and it made a nice movie with the family this afternoon. (Disney+)

A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas - Better than the second one, but they should have stopped with the first. (HBO Max)

Better Watch Out - I've liked Olivia DeJonge since that Shakespeare TV show that nobody watched. Thought this was entertaining for what it was. (Prime)

Airport - The movie that kicked off the 70s disaster genre. Strange to watch today because it's really more of a soap opera in a airport before the disaster finally happens about an hour and 45 minutes into the movie. (VUDU)

American Animals - Interesting true story based movie about some dumb college kids who try to steal some rare books. (HBO Max)
