Are We Sure These Wick Movies Aren’t Another Version Of The Matrix?
I’ve gotta say, I disagree with RunPee Dan’s John Wick 3 review on Parabellum. Some of what he says holds true with the choreography and perhaps the length of the film. But I didn’t get bored with the action. Very light, vague John Wick Parabellum spoilers lie ahead… The end of the second Wick movie […]
Movie Review – A Dog’s Journey – Manipulatively Emotional, But The Least Heart-Rending of the Dog Trilogy
I’m relieved to say this heartrending three-movie schmaltz-fest is over. I did the Peetimes for each movie in the semi-trilogy, and was relieved that A Dog’s Journey made me cry the least. By which I mean I cried only three or four times, and these were little teary moments, not the big gulping ugly cries […]
Movie Review – John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum (Not as good as the first two)
I loved the first two John Wick movies, especially the first, which really brought new life to the action genre. But I found myself getting bored by the monotonous action in John Wick Parabellum. I think the movie might have been better if it had been a little shorter. Many of the fight seems felt […]
Is A Dog’s Way Home a Sequel to A Dog’s Purpose?
Well, is it a sequel? Yes. And no. It’s also kind of a remake. I’ll get to that in a minute. A Dog’s Way Home and A Dog’s Purpose, both written by W. Bruce Cameron, are intended as the first two parts in a “shared universe” dog trilogy. This is slated to culminate in A Dog’s Journey later […]
Movie Review – A Dog’s Way Home – A Harrowing Experience for Dog Lovers
A solid B film where I ugly-cried six times, including within the opening three minutes. That’s got to be some kind of record. I wrote down how many times I cried as I jotted down notes for Peetimes (and my male companion cried three times, so it’s not just a girl thing). In any […]
Movie Review — Dog Days
This small but cute film is solid middling fare, and a possible excuse to get into air conditioning during these “Dog Days of Summer.”[pullquote] If you’ve ever had a canine friend, Dog Days has got something for everyone — there were nine storylines, but none of them felt forced. I even shed a tear [/pullquote](and […]
Movie Review – A Dog’s Purpose – A Brutal Experience in Non-Stop Crying
This was a hard movie to rate, because I feel so angry at the producers for even making this emotionally manipulative sob fest. Nobody should see this. The target audience: people who love dogs beyond measure, AND don’t mind crying almost nonstop for an entire film. I can’t even begin to describe how painful this […]
