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.

Masterminds (2016)

This is based on a true story, but there's no way these caricatures were based on real people. You can have successful movies where every character is way over-the-top (Raising Arizona comes to mind), but the storytelling's gotta match the vibe or it just feels inept.
