    RockNRolla

    ★★★★

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast)

    "A RocknRolla, oh, he's different. Why? Because a real RocknRolla wants the fucking lot." .... but the so-called RockNRolla was my least favorite part for most of the runtime 😂😂

    I love a good Guy Ritchie fast-talking gangster flick, and it is just not fair that all of them can't be as good as 'Snatch'.

    (Quick Hits)

    - Ritchie is great at ensembling the perfect casts to put into his stylized world of crime…

    13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

    ★★★★½

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast)

    Michael Bay put his machismo directing style to good use in this thrilling look into the heroism shown during the dark hours of the 2012 Benghazi attack.

    "Listen up ... None of you have to go ... But we are the only help they have ... Two vehicles, staged and ready. Let's go! Move! Move!"

    Much like 'Black Hawk Down' from 2001, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi brought the depiction of urban…

  • City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold

    City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold

    ★★★

    The City Slickers are back and this time they have a thirst for not only adventure, but treasure too.

    "Curly was wrong, there are two things ... Whatever the hell this is... and gold ... Let's go get it."

    So immediately after enjoying City Slickers, I was still in the mood for some laughs so I dove right into the sequel which I had seen before. With Billy Crystal's character's mid-life crisis behind him, this time it's more about their…

    City Slickers

    ★★★½

    Giddy-up buckaroos ... its time to kick that mid-life crisis to the curb cowboy style!

    "One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don't mean shit ... But, what is the one thing? ... That's what *you* have to find out."

    After seeing City Slickers 2 a bunch of times as a kid, I finally checked out what this Curly fella was all about. By just glancing at the movie poster you pretty much know what…

    Luca

    ★★★★

    (Disney Pixar) #24 Luca

    Literally a fish out of water story, with great coming of age themes to boot.

    "Silenzio Bruno!"

    Luca has a unique aesthetic for a Pixar movie which reminded me of the look that Laika uses. It is clearly reminiscent of 'The Little Mermaid', 'Ponyo', 'Bubble Guppies', and even 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs'. Plus it is seasoned with plenty of natural feeling Italian flair. I did not find it as emotionally resonant as Pixar's best…

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    An all new Spiderman comes into his own as Marvel and Sony unleash the Spider-Verse!

    "Wow, that is one hardcore origin story kid."

    The dazzling pages of a comic book come to life in this highly unique and imaginative animated film. For so long I have wanted to see a Spiderman movie that was not handcuffed to the constraints of a simple hero story and one or two villains. And Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse delivers that and much more as…
