Starsky & Hutch is one of the better, for what it’s worth, TV-to-film adaptations as Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson were great together and the humor mostly landed and seeing this 15 years later was a lot of fun.
There’s no doubt Queen is a true hall of fame band and Freddie Mercury a transformative musician, but this bio-pic, while well produced and finely acted, feels a bit sterilized relaying Mercury’s life but keeping it within the PG-13 realm.

In the Heat of the Night is a wonderful and culturally important film from the 1960s and while I don’t think it’s among Sidney Poitier’s best, with To Sir, With Love being my favorite of his, but it still is a great performance alongside Rod Steiger.
Robin Hood is hardly a terrible movie, it did have some passion behind-the-scenes and I did genuinely like Jamie Foxx as John, but most everything else makes you wonder: what’s the point of a big budget movie like this?
A Star is Born is a well made music-drama and although I can’t compare it to the other versions, I thought this one had some great music to go along with solid performances from Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in her feature film debut.
The Return of the Vampire is a great little horror flick from Bela Lugosi and features some solid direction by Lew Landers, really capturing and highlighting the shadows, giving it an almost film noir vibe.
Waterworld over the course of 20 years has washed away (so to speak) some of the negativity related to its lackluster box office set against its tremendous budget. Watching all these years later, and the long awaited Ulysses Cut no less, I found it to be a really fun apocalyptic action-thriller.
