Why I love this movie

I remember watching it on rental, not sure why I missed it in the theaters, and I watched just about every movie that came out in the 90s. And I still remember this movie even though I had only seen it once before we decided to do a pod on this movie.

I love the supporting cast - a young Joaquin Phoenix, the late and always great James Gandolfini, and probably one of the b...

Today’s film is “Bill & Ted Face the Music,” released in 2020. Starring Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter. The movie is directed by Dean Parisot.

Keanu Reeves has had an amazing career. He is ageless. Keanu has a full head of hair, can still play the leading man, has a lean body, and has that star quality that you are just born with. You can’t take acting lessons to be a star. You can't work out with a personal trainer to be...

Why I love this movie

The first hour is so good. It moves fast. We don’t even know Bond’s mission until about 45 - 60 minutes into the movie. I love that.

I also like that this is similar to License to Kill, which shows Bond going rouge from central command.

It is a shame that the combination of Peter Hunt, the director, and George Lazenb...

Today’s film is “Willow” released in 1988. Starring Val Kilmer and is directed by Ron Howard.

- I love the first half of this movie
- It is more comedy and getting to know the characters. It’s part hangout movie and part ragtag bunch against the all-powerful
- And Val Kilmer is the classic good-looking, very alpha, and funny hero
- I kinda wished we got to stay in the village of Nelwyn. But it is a movie in the 80s...

- Lon Cheney is great in this movie. He does his own makeup

- The unmasking scene is so good
