Thor movie review (Quick Reviews)

Here’s my review of Thor (2011) – it’s a tale of two movies, so to speak.  One is better than the other, but neither are terrible.  You can see my other Quick Reviews MCU episodes here.

The Bounty movie review

Mel Gibson and Anthony Hopkins star in 1984’s The Bounty, a ship charged with the task of journeying from England to Tahiti to procure breadfruit plants and then continue on to the Caribbean so that said plants could become a food source for slave labor there.   I only mention the plot here because whenever I reference this movie in conversation, folks look at me like I’m crazy, so if nothing else, I can use this first paragraph to mention that this is a movie everybody should see at least once… oh and it also features Laurence Olivier.

Anyway, here’s someone’s fun with audio Silence of the Lambs and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer video. Read the rest of this entry

This post is about the 2012 film Hitchcock.  For reviews of films by Alfred Hitchcock, see Better know your Hitchcock.
