My buddy Michael does a great job of doing micro-reviews of movies he’s watched every month. This is something I used to do years ago, and I was inspired by his posts to start doing again.
Mama – First time watching this flick by the director of IT. It was pretty good. Had creepy kids in it and a well paced story.
The Arrival – One of my favorite sci-fi flicks of the 90’s. I hadn’t seen it in years and it still holds up relatively well.
Hocus Pocus – First time watching this Disney classic. It’s a great Halloween watch and I’m glad to say I’ve finally seen it.
Dark Skies – This movie had a ton of potential and a few decent scenes but ultimately left me disappointed.
May – An early 2000’s horror flick that had been on my “to see” list for years. It was decent. Angela Bettis’ performance was amazing.
Slumber Party Massacre – Having seen the second film multiple times, I thought it was time to watch this one. It was way better than expected!
The Babysitter – Decided to revisit this classic before watching the sequel. It held up well and is still quite funny. Arguably McG’s best movie.
Sorority House Massacre – Not as good as Slumber Party Massacre, but not too bad either. Very similar in plot and I wasn’t surprised to find out the writer/director worked on the former.
The Rental – So disappointing. What a stinker. Not even Allison Brie could save this piece of crap.
Sex Drive – This movie is one of my favorite comedies and it holds up so well. Had me in tears and I’ve seen it at least half a dozen times.
Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitters Dead – I’ve saw parts of this film a ton as a kid on HBO, but I don’t think I ever saw the whole thing. It was pretty decent. Nothing amazing, but a fun 90’s film.
The Babysitter 2 : Killer Queen – The follow-up was pretty damn good. It maintained a similar tone to the first film and I really enjoyed it. I look forward to another entry in this series.
Tucker and Dale vs Evil – In the mood for more horror/comedy, I dusted off an old classic and found it just as entertaining as the first time.
True Crime – I haven’t seen this Alicia Silverstone film since it was released in 1996, and well… I probably could have not revisited it. It wasn’t terrible, but it plays out like a 90’s Lifetime movie.
Sleepless in Seattle – I love a lot of classic rom-coms but something just felt amiss with this one. I haven’t seen it in years and I thought it didn’t age very well. I didn’t buy into the love story and prefer You Got Mail.
Fire in the Sky – Finally got around to seeing this film and it was okay. A good one time watch.
Grown Ups – One of those Happy Madison movies that doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel and instead just tells a goofy story with a little heart.
Grown Ups 2 – This was really, really bad.
Replicas – Not as bad as I heard, but not great either. It was like an episode of The Outer Limits stretched a little too long.
Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo – Always a fun film though it became super dated with The Matrix parody fight scene.
Coneheads – Another childhood classic I hadn’t seen since the 90’s. Lots of fun.
The Blob (1988) – This was another movie on my “to watch” list for years. It was decent.
The Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows – Yet another movie on my “to watch” list and I liked it the best of all The Blair Witch movies, but that’s not saying much.
Console Wars – Loved this. Arguably the best video game doc I’ve ever seen.
Bill and Ted Face the Music – I really enjoyed this, more than I even expected. It’s wholesome, funny, and has heart something I think we could all use right now.
