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.


The Girl on the Train (2016)

Not quite as good as the book, and the book was only just that kind of story that keeps you reading -- not because you don’t know what’s going to happen, but because you DO know what’s going to happen but it’s still fun to get there.

Blunt acquits herself well, but the story is ultimately “bad guy ruins several lives and almost gets away with it.”
