Periodically, I do watch movies that don’t fall into horror or 90s sci-fi…not much recently, though. However, I find time for some. Below are movies I’ve been watching, in no particular order…Except for Drowning Mona, which my favorite movie.
Drowning Mona (2000)
Again, my favorite flick. Great cast, soundtrack, writing and location.
National Treasure (2004)
Fun movie, indeed, but I also love treasure hunting flicks. Mr. Cage, I can only handle for a little while, but as long as I keep them spaced out, I’m A-OK. I do intend to watch part two in a few days.
Deep Blue Sea (1999)
Kong: Skull Island (2017)
Pretty much non-stop fun, and Kong is a bad ass. Worth your time.
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) & Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life (2003)
They’re just awful…awful movies. I was prepared for some ridiculous action movie shit, but these are just too much…Plus I had to deal with Gerard Butler in the second movie…I don’t like Gerard Butler…Or Angelina Jolie…But especially Gerard Butler…God damn it.
The Adventures of Tintin (2011)
I can’t stress this enough. This movie came out of nowhere for me, and I loved it. It’s packed full of pirate treasure-hunting adventure, as well as visually gorgeous. The details, animation, and direction are spot on, so where the hell is the sequel? Grab on Blu-ray immediately.
The Mummy Trilogy (1999, 2001, 2008)
These movies are so much fun. Adventure, romance, action, treasure, and the supernatural. What more could you need? Oh, yeah, a mummy and Jet Li. That works, too.
The Mummy (2017)
I know people have talked non-stop shit on this flick because they want to compare it to Fraser’s Mummy series (also by Universal), but everybody at The Corner thought it was really good. Here’s the thing: you can have both, people. Fraser’s series is canon, and this one proves it. If you haven’t seen the movie, I won’t spoil it, but it’s there, so give this one a shot. If you HAVE seen it, and didn’t catch it, email or comment and I’ll fill you in, but I won’t spoil it for the rest. We very much hope that they continue the Dark Universe, because that’s super exciting. Just PLEASE don’t cast Angelina Jolie as The Monster’s bride….please. I’m begging you.
Serial Mom (1994)
For the love of everything holy…and HOLY shit. I’m about 50/50 on John Waters’s movies, but this one delivers, and Kathleen Turner is outstanding as the June Cleaver-esque murdering mother. It’s clever, funny, original, and recently remastered by Scream Factory. It’s also Matthew Lillard’s 2nd role.
