I remember when this film came out and everyone thought Titanic was the greatest film of all time. This was Leonardo DiCaprio’s first film after Titanic launched him into the stratosphere and made him one of the most recognisable faces in the world. Continue reading

Mallrats (1995)

This was the first Kevin Smith film I saw and how I was introduced to someone I always think I could be best friends with if he actually existed, Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee). This film about a bunch of slackers is not a smart film, but still strikes a chord with me as all of the characters are instantly relatable as someone I have known in the past, even the two lovable stoners Jay and Silent Bob.

Love & Sex (2000)

This rom-com was so boring. Granted, I’m not a huge fan of the genre as a whole, but I can appreciate a well done romantic comedy. I’m also not really a fan of either Famke Janssen or Jon Favreau, but again, they’ve each played some great roles. However, Love & Sex is not a good rom-com, and Janssen or Favreau are not playing good characters. Continue reading

At this point in the blog I’m 30+ reviews behind what we’re currently watching. This isn’t usually a problem.

Lethal Weapon 4 (1998)

Ah, finally the last Lethal Weapon film (fingers crossed), and the only one I had previously seen! Of course, I don’t remember it at all. But why would I? This movie is best enjoyed by those familiar with the series. If you have no previous affection towards Riggs and Murtaugh, you probably won’t care about Lethal Weapon 4. One could also argue that you might not even care if you’d watched the first three movies. LW4 is an obvious cash grab and a lot less fun than any of the previous installments. Continue reading
