Critical MeMe

Time spent watching films, even crappy ones, is time well-spent.

    These aren't comments on ALL of the movies through which I've cried, yawned, laughed, and rolled my eyes, but just about everything I've seen since early 2002 is here plus a few from earlier. Post dates reflect my screening & parenthetical dates are the year of US release (aka Oscar eligibility).
    Yeah, a movie review blog isn't very original. But originality is overrated. Just ask Michael Bay.


American Made (2017)

Tom Cruise Tom Cruises all over the place, but I’m not complaining.

Cocky commercial pilot is approached by the CIA to take surveillance photos, which gets him an offer from drug dealers, which gets him more work from the CIA, which gets him Breaking Bad levels of money and a bunch of acreage in Arkansas. It’d be unbelievable if it weren’t true… and I’m still not quite sure how much it CAN be true, even though I’ve now seen pictures.

Fun time at the movies, but there’s something kinda weird about being entertained by such wild excess and danger.
