spring and summer flicks

Here are a few one liners about the flicks I have (re)watched this Spring and Summer.
  • The Accountant ★★★★★★★★☆☆
    Ben Afflect does a great job playing a assassin mob bookkeeper with Aspergers.
  • Age of Adeline ★★★★★★★★☆☆
    Love the mystical characteristics of this tale of a woman who never ages.
  • The Big Sick ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Beautifully retold true story of love, arranged marriages, cross cultrural dating and a girl in a coma.
  • Casino ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
    I guess it was just too hard to live up the the hype. IMO, good but not great.
  • Deja Vu ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
    Fun SciFi flick starring Denzel about time travel and the ability to change the future from the past.
  • Grosse Pointe Blank ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
    Crazy tale of a contract killer who goes to his high school reunion.
  • Keeping Up with the Joneses ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
    Thoroughly enjoyable story about the spies who move into the cul-de-sac.
  • Lion ★★★★★★★★☆☆
    Heartwarming story about a boy who was lost at age 6 and found his way home 20+ years later
  • Masterminds ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
    Kooky and funny story based on the true life story of 4 dim-witted people who pulled off a $17m heist.
  • The Matrix Series ★★★★★★★★☆☆
    Had all three flicks recorded and binged through them. Fast forwarded through much of the last two. The rating is for the initial installment which is very good. I give the sequels 3-4 stars each.
  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
    Another movie that simply could not live up to all of the hype.
  • Snowden ★★★★★★★★☆☆
    Oliver Stone's examination of the life and patriotism of a guy who is called a traitor by some.
  • Spectre ★★★★★★★★☆☆
    A pretty good Bond flick about the criminal agency created in the Ian Fleming books.
  • Solaris ★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
    I like SciFi flicks but this is not one of George Clooney's better efforts.
  • Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan ★★★★★★★★☆☆
    I love this campy Star Trek movie and could almost watch it every day. ツ
  • Star Trek III: The Search for Spock ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
    Not one of the better trekker flicks but a nice way to kill an afternoon.
  • Star Trek IV: The Journey Home ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
    What can I say. This retired guy was on a Kirk Spock binge. :)
  • Watchmen ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
    A fun super hero movie about dark comic book action figures trying to prevent nuclear war.
  • The Way We Were ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
    Not as good as I remembered it but a nice throwback Thursday movie.
I will augment (marked with *) the list as I watch more movies (at home and at the theater) this summer.

  1. You have been busy. Because of my knee, physical therapy twice a week and doctor's appointments I just haven't gotten to the show at all. We do watch two new movies each weekend on DVD from Netflix. I've seen three movies at the show this year so far, normally I see at least one a week! I do hope to see The Big Sick this week, going to force myself to go and I want to see Spiderman. I've seen a good number of the movies you have listed except for the Star Trek ones although I think I might have seen them. I really enjoyed Keeping Up With The Joneses, Lion and The Accountant was great!
