Reviews By Gregg Turkington (253)

Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

2012 (114 min)

Everything from overturning cars to explosions to old fashioned shoot 'em ups

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Can of Red Bull

The Man with the Iron Fists

2012 (95 min)

I think Russell Crowe is always going to be someone to watch. When he's on the screen he lights up the whole room.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 2 Sodas

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

2012 (169 min)

My one word review is FINALLY

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Big Hobbit Hug


Django Unchained

2012 (165 min)

I like being thrown for a curve, and Quentin Tarantino always does. I'm gonna tip my hat to him, this is a great movie.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Toy Pistol Filled With Soft Drink

Red Dawn

2012 (93 min)

There's a lot of thrills and spills and chills, and we like that sort of thing on this show

4 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Cup of Water


2012 (138 min)

John Goodman should be renamed John Greatman after this one because he's Oscar-worthy, as he often is.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Candy Bar


Les Miserables

2012 (158 min)

4 or 5, whatever. Great music.

4 Bags of Popcorn

Zero Dark Thirty

2012 (157 min)

It was a popcorn movie, but it's history

4 Bags of Popcorn


2012 (150 min)

I've seen a lot of movies about Lincoln, this was one of the best

4 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Roll of Lincoln Pennies

Life of Pi

2012 (127 min)

With all the animals in it they could have called it Animal House 2

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Crackers Wrapped in Seaweed

Playing for Keeps

2012 (105 min)

I flipped over it. It will be a movie that I will add to my library when it's made available.

4 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Hot Dog

The Frozen Ground

2013 (105 min)

Serial killers are not funny business. That's definitely a segment of society that should be eliminated.

4 Bags of Popcorn


2012 (143 min)

Anytime you get a chance to see a James Bond movie, you've got to do it

5 Bags of Popcorn, 100 Sodas

Anna Karenina

2012 (129 min)

It wouldn't have been possible to make this a few years ago when we were at war with Russia and there was that whole thing.

5 Bags of Popcorn


Monsters, Inc.

2001 (92 min)

The theatre I went to, the 3D was not working

5 Bags of Popcorn

Hyde Park on Hudson

2012 (94 min)

This is no Meatballs. It's not a gross out comedy.

5 Bags of Popcorn, Many Oscar Statues


Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away

2012 (91 min)

If you can't get out there to see Cirque du Soleil in person, go to your local cineplex

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Cotton Candy

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

2012 (115 min)

I haven't seen the previous one so it was hard to follow the plot. Not a lot of car crashes in this film.

4 Bags of Popcorn

Jack Reacher

2012 (130 min)

It's an instant classic.

5 Bags of Popcorn


2018 (107 min)

I loved it too. It's actually interesting, Rampage - this new Rampage - is actually the sixth movie in movie history called Rampage but none of them are remakes, they're not sequels, they are six different filmmakers who decided Rampage would be a good title for a movie. And they're right.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Stack Of Index Cards


2018 (120 min)

I think Tyler Perry is - it's strange, you wouldn't have seen this coming - but I think he's becoming the Woody Allen of our generation.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Piece of Wood


Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero

2018 (84 min)

I thought it was great. I don't think Sgt Stubby is ever going to be on the level of Benji as far as being an American hero who happens to be a dog, but I do think the movie's very good.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Can Of Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance Dog Food

Ready Player One

2018 (140 min)

Spielberg is probably the preeminent director of our time and it shows his confidence with this movie that he knew that this was gonna be such a hit that it was gonna kick off a new francise, and so - some would call it overconfidence, I think it's the right move - he called the first one in the series Ready Player ONE

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Old E.T. Keychain

Super Troopers 2

2018 (99 min)

I think good movie is kind of underselling it. I think it was a great movie. And I think that seeing the gang back after this many years, this has to set a record for the longest time between an original movie and it's sequel.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Highway Patrol Siren

Solo: A Star Wars Story

2018 (135 min)

I am going to decline to review this movie and I'm going to tell you why. I thnk any long time viewer knows that George Lucas and co are guilty of theft, taking my master codebreaker character and folding it into the Star Wars world. I don't know if that character plays into this movie, I'm going to have to assume that he does, but in any case I'm boycotting the movie until I receive full credit from Mr. Lucas and an invitation to appear in one of the future Star Wars movies.

Gregg did not rate this film

Breaking In

2018 (88 min)

This is kind of a horror film about home invasion. It's really quite unpleasant at times, but that's kind of what going to the movies is all about is experiencing different types of things and some of them can't be fun

5 Bags of Popcorn


2018 (96 min)

This is kind of, um, I guess you'd say a modern twist on the old Easy Rider but in Easy Rider the motorcycle gang were heroes, and in this they're monsters.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Thing of Mace

Pacific Rim: Uprising

2018 (111 min)

After seeing this Pacific Rim movie I feel like there could be another 10 afterwards. This is the beginning of a new franchise.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Lucky Rabbit's Foot

Show Dogs

2018 (92 min)

It's actually from the director who made the Scooby Doo movies if you've seen those. Show Dogs, it sounds almost like Straw Dogs, but of course it's the exact opposite. This is something for kids.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Decorative Dog Bowl

Deadpool 2

2018 (119 min)

If you loved Deadpool and if you kind of left the theater scratching your head and thinking what is gonna happen next with these characters now you can find out, as I did.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Gift Certificate For Deadpool 1 On VHS

Sherlock Gnomes

2018 (86 min)

This is a great movie. It's a frustrating movie because it is so great but it could have been greater. And the reason I say that is the director. John Stevenson is a no name director. I think when you've got Johnny Depp on board for something like this, the next call you make is to Tim Burton.

5 Bags of Popcorn


2017 (106 min)

I don't think it's quite the political movie that you make it out to be, I think it's more of an old fashioned horror movie in that you've got a car on a bridge hitting the water and sinking, which is very frightening to most people.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Inflatable Life Preserver

You Were Never Really Here

2017 (89 min)

I felt like I was there, I was in the theater because it was a very memorable film to see. It was one of the scariest movies in recent years, one of the most horrifying and one of the most real.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Prescription To See A Psychiatrist

Avengers: Infinity War

2018 (149 min)

I think it was a mistake for Marvel to call it The Avengers when there was already another series called The Avengers with Uma Thurman.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Ant-Man DVD


2018 (112 min)

I think they were taking a risk but I think the risk paid off because this movie is just as good as the original, maybe even a touch better.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Miniature Anchor

Life of the Party

2018 (105 min)

If the Oscars would get with the modern world and have an award for best comedy this would be a shoo-in

5 Bags of Popcorn



2013 (112 min)

If I was gonna go to the movies some afternoon I think I'd go see the Hobbit which is still playing in a few theaters

5 Bags of Popcorn

Jurassic Park

1993 (127 min)

This is the same Jurassic Park you know and love but it's in 3D now.

Gregg did not rate this film


2013 (100 min)

I probably shouldn't say anything about this because I don't want to give away the ending

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Curtain Around the Bags and Some of Those Hot Spicy Little Candies


2013 (124 min)

This film is a delight. It's a science fiction movie. It's a little strange.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Ring Around Each Bag

Dark Skies

2013 (97 min)

If you saw the full thing, as I did, you would give it 5 bags

5 Bags of Popcorn

Escape from Planet Earth

2013 (89 min)

If you've got somebody like Brendan Fraser, who is a great resource, if you actually filmed him rather than animate him I think it would have been more enjoyable.

Gregg did not rate this film

21 & Over

2013 (93 min)

It could be a case of too many cooks spoil the broth in that...two directors, sometimes I think it gets kind of messy.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Shot of Jagermeister

The Croods

2013 (98 min)

Thinking about this movie just makes me feel warm all over

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Hollowed Out Stones to Hold the Popcorn

Jack the Giant Slayer

2013 (114 min)

When I see a movie like this the first thing that pops into my head is "I love this job"

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 More Bags of Popcorn

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

2013 (100 min)

I think this is the year that Oscar is gonna smile on Jim Carrey because I think he gave a great performance

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Oscar Inside Each Bag for Jim Carrey


Identity Thief

2013 (111 min)

She might be stealing people's identities, but what she's really stealing is our hearts

5 Bags of Popcorn, Some Little Chattering Teeth

Dead Man Down

2013 (118 min)

We're living in good times, and this is a great movie.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Little Mace Spray

Scary Movie 5

2013 (86 min)

You know what you're in for, which is a lot of laughs, a couple of little chills, a little fright here and there, and a little bit of eye candy in the form of Miss Lindsay Lohan

5 Bags of Popcorn

A Good Day to Die Hard

2013 (98 min)

You think "Bruce Willis is getting a little old, maybe it's time to pass the torch to a new generation of Die Hard characters" but then you see this movie and realize "Nope, lets keep him in the throne."

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Goblet of the Finest Champagne

Oz the Great and Powerful

2013 (130 min)

I gotta say I miss The Munchkins. I never though I would hear myself say that.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Toto Basket to Hold the Popcorn

The Company You Keep

2012 (125 min)

It's one of those movies where you're enjoying it but the whole time you're thinking "could I be learning something, too?"

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Runaway Freight Train

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

2013 (106 min)

I would say it's sort of like The Hobbit underwater. Hobbit meets Jaws!

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Cup of Water

One Direction: This Is Us

2013 (92 min)

It's not really a movie. It's just some jerks playing awful music.

0 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Blackhole

Grown Ups 2

2013 (101 min)

Grown Ups 2 should be called Grown Ups ONLY. It's pretty raunchy.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Empty Bag to Throw Up Into

The Smurfs 2

2013 (105 min)

I hope this is one of those franchises like Star Trek that we see become a regular presence on our screens

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Blue Popsicles


The Lone Ranger

2013 (150 min)

Disney is usually known more for their animation, and it's neat to see them branching out with something like this

4 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Chocolate Horse for Johnny Depp


2013 (90 min)

2 bags of popcorn, I guess. It's not the Steve McQueen 'Getaway'

2 Bags of Popcorn

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

2013 (161 min)

In a way it's the ultimate Christmas movie, in that it's a gift from Peter Jackson to the world

5 Bags of Popcorn, 100 More Bags of Popcorn


The Wolverine

2013 (126 min)

This is kind of the "Gone With The Wind" of Wolverine movies

5 Bags of Popcorn, 10 Cups of Coffee

300: Rise of an Empire

2014 (102 min)

Whether a character leaves or stays that isn't really how you review movies. That's kind of amateur-ish.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 300 Little Bits of Caramel Corn

Pacific Rim

2013 (131 min)

I loved this movie and I look forward to many more in the series

5 Bags of Popcorn


2013 (119 min)

I've seen all the Vin Diesel movies. I'd rank this among his top 3.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Iron Fist

Blue Jasmine

2013 (98 min)

A lot of filmmakers are making the movie from the wallet, and [Woody] is making it from the heart

Gregg did not rate this film

Kick-Ass 2

2013 (103 min)

I think with a better title you'd have more of an audience

5 Bags of Popcorn, 0 Bags of Popcorn for the Title


2013 (109 min)

Neat film

Gregg did not rate this film

Despicable Me 2

2013 (98 min)

This is the kind of movie you take kids to

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Bags of Mixed Candy


A Madea Christmas

2013 (100 min)

I've gotta say I was a little distracted when I was trying to watch this one because my mind was still on The Hobbit

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Set of Blinders


2013 (116 min)

These are assassins, so there's gonna be some blood spilled. And there is.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Packages of Band-Aids


2013 (96 min)

Usually when you have "slow and steady wins the race" it's a turtle. In this case it's a snail so I thought that was kind of interesting.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Shaker of Salt


2014 (105 min)

This one's not quite up to the level of 'Gladiator' but it's damn close.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 2 Baskets of Dried Volcanic Rock

Project Almanac

2015 (106 min)

This is probably the best time travel movie I've seen since 'Back to the Future 3' which was the conclusion of the Back to the Future trilogy

5 Bags of Popcorn

The Lego Movie

2014 (100 min)

This might be marketed as a kids movie but I think it's something that all adults will enjoy

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Big Grocery Bags of Lego Pieces

The Nut Job

2014 (85 min)

If you'd seen the movie, you'd know that it's an animated film about a squirrel.

Gregg did not rate this film

Muppets Most Wanted

2014 (107 min)

It's like Sesame Street but a little bit more adult. But still perfect for kids.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Newly Bundled Newborn Babies

Walk of Shame

2014 (95 min)

I might dock for being a little bit insincere plotwise, but in fact I love the movie so much I can't dock it in good faith.

5 Bags of Popcorn


2014 (106 min)

It was more of a dark look at a really toxic subject which is airplane hijacking

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Little Cell Phone

Gimme Shelter

2013 (101 min)

I don't know if you want me to talk about the movie or maybe I should talk about medicinal leeches or some other quackery that has nothing to do with the movie at hand

5 Bags of Popcorn, 2 Certificates From the American Medical Association Debunking Doctor San

That Awkward Moment

2014 (94 min)

That awkward moment when a movie review show is ruined by quackery

5 Bags of Popcorn, 2 Dirty Acupuncture Needles


2013 (126 min)

If you ever saw the Al Pacino classic "S1m0ne" which was short for Simulated One, this was kind of an unoffical remake of that

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Little Red Ribbon

Girl on a Bicycle

2013 (101 min)

It wasn't a Bond movie. I'm kind of a Bond-head as anyone who watches this show knows, but it had it's charms

5 Bags of Popcorn

Need for Speed

2014 (132 min)

I do like action and adventure and things like that so I'm gonna give it 5 bags of popcorn

5 Bags of Popcorn


2014 (117 min)

If you loved Robocop the original, you're probably going to love this twice as much

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Miniature Robot

Lone Survivor

2013 (121 min)

Sort of an unoffical sequel to Zero Dark Thirty

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Turban

I, Frankenstein

2014 (92 min)

I've seen all the Frankenstein movies. I would rank this up there with the best of them

5 Bags of Popcorn, 2 Frankenstein Bolts

Labor Day

2013 (111 min)

It's no laughing matter what happens to the family in this movie. And I hope it never happens to any of our viewers.

5 Bags of Popcorn

Endless Love

2014 (104 min)

This is a fun movie. A little painful at times, I found.

5 Bags of Popcorn

Ride Along

2014 (99 min)

I think it's interesting that you'd cast Ice Cube in a movie this hot, because you have to worry about him melting on the set

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Tray of Ice

The Expendables 3

2014 (126 min)

It would make a great feature film to take the Decker stuff, expand on it a little bit, re-cut it, make it into a movie.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 2 Pills That People Think Are Steroids But It's Actually Just Vitamin C

Deliver Us from Evil

2014 (118 min)

Imagine 'The Exorcist' set in New York City and I think you get an idea of what we're dealing with here

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Scary Bags

Planes: Fire & Rescue

2014 (83 min)

What can you say? I've seen a lot of movies over the years and it takes a special movie for me to say afterwards, "Wow I've never seen anything like that" and that's what this movie was

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Little Captain's Badge

The Green Inferno

2013 (100 min)

It's a good movie, I give it 5 bags of popcorn.

5 Bags of Popcorn

Get on Up

2014 (139 min)

I think it was a very very excellent movie, and if you gave his life 5 bags of popcorn then you're gonna have to give the movie 5 bags of popcorn and that's what I'm doing here today

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 CD of James Brown's Greatest Hits


Guardians of the Galaxy

2014 (121 min)

I liked the movie a lot. I'm glad I could SEE it, and that makes all the difference.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Cane for the Blind

Wish I Was Here

2014 (106 min)

This was very much like real life, and some of the problems you can encounter in life as you try to get through your day to day living

5 Bags of Popcorn, 2 Nickels



2014 (98 min)

Oscar may be calling you, Mr. Rock!

5 Bags of Popcorn, 2 Souvenir Rocks


Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

2014 (102 min)

I do think it's a cautionary tale of how you can screw up a movie through not honoring the people who have made something what it is

5 Bags of Popcorn


2014 (97 min)

35th anniversary of 'Blues Brother' this year and so it's kind of cool to see [Dan Aykroyd] back on the screen

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Miniature Toy Harmonica

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

2014 (130 min)

If it wins Best Picture that's probably a sign that it's the last one in the series. Because that's how they tend to do that, if you remember with Lord of the Rings won best picture and the The Hobbit 3 is probably gonna win best picture.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Banana Cream Pie

Let's Be Cops

2014 (104 min)

I saw it. It was very funny. It's your typical summer comedy. It's got flashes of brilliance.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 2 Little Mini Hostess Donuts

The November Man

2014 (108 min)

It's hard to watch a movie with an ex-Bond because you're thinking about past Bond glories and things like that.

5 Bags of Popcorn

Jupiter Ascending

2015 (127 min)

Mila Kunis provides the eye candy, there's plenty of CGI, and this is just a fun popcorn movie

5 Bags of Popcorn


2014 (90 min)

It does have it's moments - it's scary, it's frightening. Anything with a ghost is frightening. That's the last thing you want is to be haunted by a ghost.

I don't really want to say anything about it, because anything I say might end up in an episode of Decker

You sleep good at night because you haven't done anything. I'm the one who Ayaka comes knocking at my door crying her eyes out because you won't let her into your place

Gregg did not rate this film


2015 (119 min)

I gotta say, some of it reminded me of our own Decker, but not as good, you know?

5 Bags of Popcorn

Kingsman: The Secret Service

2014 (129 min)

That's kind of what makes it good. When you're watching it it reminds you of how much we really appreciate Deckers appearance on the action scene.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Videotape With 5 Episodes of Decker

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

2015 (92 min)

It's an interesting trend, television shows or cartoons expanding into being feature films

5 Bags of Popcorn

Woman in Gold

2015 (109 min)

It's not the kind of thing I would take small children to unless you're trying to teach them something about history

5 Bags of Popcorn, Some Golden Butter

Fifty Shades of Grey

2015 (125 min)

I saw it more as kind of a romance. It did have some adult elements to it.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Little Chocolate Hearts

The Lazarus Effect

2015 (83 min)

The idea of coming back from the dead is a topic that's interested people for decades. In a sense it's sort of the new era of classic movie monsters like your Frankenstein's and your Wolfman and your Mummy.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Four-leaf Clover


2015 (94 min)

It's great. I mean, Steve Martin is always, you know, you're never gonna go wrong with Steve Martin.

If you're a Bondhead you'll watch anything Pierce Brosnan does, and of course I loved it because of that

I'm gonna give it 5 bags of popcorn and 5 little rubber duckies in case you want to put them in the bathtub and recreate the movie in your own bath

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Rubber Duckies


2015 (105 min)

With two directors I think it's easier to get that kind of focus because they can share some of the mundane aspects of being a director and focus on the stories and on the great actors like Will Smith.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Microscope


McFarland, USA

2015 (129 min)

I would disagree with you. I think it IS your typical Kevin Costner movie in that Field of Dreams is one of the all-time great Kevin Costner movies and it's a sports movie.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Baseballs

Furious 7

2015 (137 min)

I think it's very sad that Paul Walker passed away and never got to see this movie. I think he would have liked it. It's a very, very good film.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Commemorative Gold Cross

Jupiter Ascending

2015 (127 min)

It's the kind of thing you might want to go to with a friend because it get's a little scary

5 Bags of Popcorn


2015 (105 min)

Cinderella has become, over the years, something for children and there's aspects of the story that are very adult. I think that this movie kind of delved into that a little bit.

Jupiter Ascending

Hot Tub Time Machine 2

2015 (93 min)

Hot Tub Time Machine was the Airplane of our generation, just a comedy that everybody loved.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Little Container of Chlorine


2015 (120 min)

Signourney Weaver is one of my favorites in Alien, and this being a science fiction film like Alien, I felt it was sort of the flip side of Alien. Kind of the darker side of Alien.

5 Bags of Popcorn

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

2015 (122 min)

What I thought was interesting about this is that with some of the classic movies when they make sequels like your Rocky's or your Jaws you get Rocky 2, Jaws 2, they just put a number after it. And instead they actually incoporated the fact that it was sequel INTO the title.

5 Bags of Popcorn

The Gunman

2015 (115 min)

I thought it was good. I mean, I've definitely seen better. I think that if you tune in nightly to Decker this week, I think you'll find it's a little better than this movie.

5 Bags of Popcorn

Get Hard

2015 (100 min)

I would say that Will Ferrell has cemented his role as the Gene Wilder of our generation

What can you say about Spongebob? He's an American institution.

2015 (88 min)

Like the Doctor San Forgiveness Special...that was a horror movie.

This, I think, is the best of the Daniel Craig Bond movies, possibly of all the Bond movies.

The Peanuts Movie

2015 (88 min)

If you've ever read The Peanuts cartoons, you know exactly what this is about

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Bags of Peanuts

Bridge of Spies

2015 (142 min)

I would dock it a few kernels per bag because I do feel that Spielberg is the master of science fiction and this was not science fiction, this was courtroom drama

5 Bags of Popcorn

By the Sea

2015 (122 min)

I saw it. It was very good.

5 Bags of Popcorn

Black Mass

2015 (123 min)

I feel like Johnny Depp was wasted in this role just playing some old, essentially a business man when he's much more suited to fanciful characters

5 Bags of Popcorn


2015 (117 min)

I think it would be unfair to the show for me to review my own movie. So I'm going to recuse myself, respectfully.

Gregg did not rate this film

Jem and the Holograms

2015 (118 min)

It's kind of like a "star is born" type scenario, but with animated characters who have now come to life's interesting.

5 Bags of Popcorn

Fantastic Four

2015 (100 min)

I completely understand why you would want to be involved with it, why you would pay the $15,000 to get that cameo in the movie.

Steve Jobs

2015 (122 min)

As far as I know, and I do know these things, this is the first biography of a known figure to use the full name as the title of the movie.

I loved it. I kept feeling like this is kind of like an unofficial Tim Burton movie. I kept thinking "did Tim Burton have something to do with this?"

5 Bags of Popcorn, The Phone Number of Tim Burton


2015 (111 min)

Seeing Peter Pan come to life with modern technology that Hollywood has at it's disposal these days is nothing short of a miracle

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Jar of Peter Pan Brand Peanut Butter

Decker, of course, would have fallen asleep and burned down FBI headquarters and destroyed all their records

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Firetruck Full of Flame-Retardant Foam

Jason Bourne

2016 (123 min)

I think they should re-release this movie with a new title. Again, The Bourne Victory seems like the most natural one, and I think you'll see the box office explode if they do that.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Advice Capsule

Kubo and the Two Strings

2016 (101 min)

This is the summer of animation, quite frankly. We've had a lot of animated features this year and there's more to come.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Packets of Soy Sauce

Hands of Stone

2016 (111 min)

It's not being called Raging Bull 2, but essentially it is. But with a twist that now Robert Deniro is the trainer.

The Magnificent Seven

2016 (132 min)

What theater did you see it in?

5 Bags of Popcorn

Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party

2016 (106 min)

I was very surprised in that this movie is only partially a documentary. A lot of is recreated scenes using actors, and they're very good actors.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Pair of Scissors

Suicide Squad

2016 (123 min)

I would have to say 5 bags of popcorn is a slam dunk rating for this, and I'm going to throw in a pair of handcuffs for Dr San for doing this once again.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Pair of Handcuffs

Star Trek: Beyond

2016 (122 min)

I actually think this is the best Star Trek movie since Star Trek II which was set in San Francisco

Put it this way...Woody Allen's house is sinking into the ground under the weight of all that Oscar gold

Sausage Party

2016 (89 min)

The sausages, as characters, to me weren't as compelling as the baby carrots

Gregg did not rate this film


2016 (134 min)

This movie is kind of interesting because if you watch the last season of Decker, you saw an episode that mentioned Nicholas Cage's National Treasure and also when he got into the treasure chest he found a file that mentioned how much Oliver Stone would like to see this file.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Toy Door

Mechanic: Resurrection

2016 (98 min)

The movie is about assassinatoins. It's about a character who'se kind of an unsavory...kind of the flipside of the James Bond coin.

5 Bags of Popcorn


2016 (87 min)

What's up with Ayaka and the baby?

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Stork Eggs

The Light Between Oceans

2016 (133 min)

A lighthouse keeper and his wife living off the coast of western Australia raise a baby they rescue from an adrift baby. It reminds me of Tim and Ayaka's baby but it wasn't adrift on a rowboat it was adrift on bad medicine and anti-vaccination ideas that Dr. San had.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Tickets to the Rehab Clinic

Bridget Jones's Baby

2016 (118 min)

I think the Bridget Jones's movies are fantastic. I dont see them as just for women, I personally love those movies. When I go see them there's always plenty of men there.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Baby Rattle

Nine Lives

2016 (87 min)

This is very reminiscent of The Shaggy D.A., The Shaggy Dog, either one of those movies I guess you'd say. Cross that with Garfield and you'll know what Nine Lives is all about.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Catnip Toy

Pete's Dragon

2016 (102 min)

The movie was filmed in New Zealand, and it's about a dragon. I wouldn't call it an unofficial sequel to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, but definitely in the same wheelhouse.

5 Bags of Popcorn

The Lost City of Z

2016 (141 min)

This is a big movie, make no mistake about it. And it's big movies that tend to take home Oscar gold, so you're absolutely correct in your prediction. This will be a big Oscar winner.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Zorro Mask


The Circle

2017 (110 min)

5 bags.

5 Bags of Popcorn


2017 (90 min)

Sometimes the script dictates that you do cast women in the lead roles and that's what they did here. And I think this is the Thelma and Louise for this generation

5 Bags of Popcorn

Kong: Skull Island

2017 (118 min)

At it's basic core it is a King Kong movie. It's very similar to the original King Kong from 1933. It gives you the backstory of that famous gorilla.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Cross

How to Be a Latin Lover

2017 (115 min)

5 bags.

5 Bags of Popcorn

The Case for Christ

2017 (112 min)

I thought it was interesting. When I see a movie that starts with the word case I think of a Sherlock Holmes or that type of a movie and this was something very different.

5 Bags of Popcorn

T2 Trainspotting

2017 (117 min)

It's the same guys from the first Trainspotting which is a great movie about the horrors of drug addiction which is something that I'm familar with from working on this show

Power Rangers

2017 (124 min)

Well it's not a remake because there was no Power Rangers movie, it was a TV show so it's not a remake.

Gregg did not rate this film

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

2017 (126 min)

One of my favorite all-time characters in motion pictures isn't a person or a gnome or an animal or even a hobbit, it's a sword. A sword called Excalibur.

It's a fantastic film. You've never seen a film like this before.

5 Bags of Popcorn

Fast & Furious 8

2017 (136 min)

Of course Bond has had more movies, but they didn't have numbers in the titles like this one did. But just in terms of movies that end with numbers, this is now the furthest any of them have ever gone beating out Police Academy 7.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 8 Vintage Hot Wheels

Yeah, I saw it. It was great. I'll give it 5 bags of popcorn.

2017 (97 min)

I think with what's been going on for you with Juliana and Ayaka and all that it wouldn't be something you would want to watch right now

5 Bags of Popcorn

Smurfs: The Lost Village

2017 (90 min)

I would not say it's better than the original Smurfs because the original Smurfs movie featured the voice of Jonathan Winters from It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. I would still say it's a smurf, smurf, smurf, smurf world with this movie because it's a lot of fun.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 Blue Bags to Hold The Popcorn


2017 (100 min)

I'm just sick of people saying it's a remake of CHIPs because the original was a TV show and it's not a remake of a TV show it's a movie which is a completely different thing

5 Bags of Popcorn

The Boss Baby

2017 (97 min)

I liked it. I mean, it's very much in the vein of the Peanuts movie which we reviewed last season. It's something that kids would like because they're kids characters..

5 Bags of Popcorn

The Zookeeper's Wife

2017 (127 min)

I would have liked to see it more as an animted picture because then the animals would be able to talk and express their feelings

Side Effects

2013 (106 min)

Well I don't have a tumor, but I loved the movie.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Get Well Card for Tim


2016 (123 min)

I think they've improved upon it this time because in that movie you didnt have access to some of the technology. Some of the sets were a little cornball, quite frankly.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Miniature Chariot


Parental Guidance

2012 (105 min)

The whole Billy Crystal/Bette Midler pairing has always worked for me in other movies, and now in this. And you throw in these three lovable but difficult kids and it's just a recipe for fun.

Carlito's Way

1993 (144 min)

You know, uhh, I've seen most films. I consider myself kind of a minor league expert in cinema, but that's one that slipped through the cracks. It was not a big picture. It was not one that played in the theaters very long. It was not readily available.

Gregg did not rate this film

The China Syndrome

1979 (122 min)

I have seen it, and Jane Fonda of course was nominated for the Academy Award and that's the top honor in film. So it's a good film.

Lethal Weapon

1987 (109 min)

One thing to do, and you can do this at home with friends or whatever, but you stack them all up in your player and just watch them one after the other and see how the story progresses and just follow these guys as they do their thing.

J. Edgar

The Jewel of the Nile

Saving Private Ryan

I always meant to see this one. I have to admit I fell asleep. It was very late, it was on TV, too many ads. That's the problem with watching late night movies is you get an ad every 5 minutes.

Gregg did not rate this film

Kramer vs. Kramer

Gregg did not rate this film

Dirty Harry

1971 (102 min)

The Spy Who Loved Me

1977 (125 min)

It's just a very exciting film, it really has everything going for it. The credits sequence is amazing. The song, the theme song is great, Barbara Bach is definitely one of the most beautiful of the Bond girls, and Roger Moore is arguably the ultimate James Bond.

Gregg did not rate this film

Tomorrow Never Dies

1997 (119 min)

This one involves a Chinese criminal who is trying to destroy the world and of course 007 is gonna be the man to stop crooks from destroying the world and that's why we love him so much and that's why we love this movie.

The Living Daylights

Runaway Train

1985 (111 min)

This is one of my favorites. This is one that you can just put on the tape anytime of the day, it's gonna be fun. If you've got company over, some sort of informal get together with friends, slap this one on. People really enjoy it.

Gregg did not rate this film

Pretty Woman

This is a movie that sort of took the world by storm this year and it's fantastic. I've seen it 4 times already and I nominate - I hereby nominate - and this is an On Cinema exclusive, I hereby nominate for the new Santa Claus: Gandalf! Who I think would be fantastic.

Back Again

1958 (0 min)

I've seen it. It's a good movie.

Courage Under Fire

1996 (116 min)

This isn't a chick flick, this is for all audiences. Men, even kids would probably get a kick out of it because there are some action sequences.

2019 (97 min)

This is kind of a modern take on the old, I guess it's a myth or a legend and to see what they did with it with todays animation technology is really pretty exciting.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Little Rabbits Foot Keychain


2019 (119 min)

This is kind of seeing Dorothy, I guess, sort of at the end of her life and still singing "Over The Rainbow" and that's why I loved it and I think any Ozheads will also love this movie.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1700 Cups of Soda


2019 (122 min)

I'm gonna give this movie 5 bags of popcorn, and I'm gonna throw in a little movie ticket. Not a memento of a movie ticket, not a souvenir ticket, but an actual movie ticket which I hope is given to you so that you can actually see this movie because if you'd seen it you'd know that Joaquin Phoenix plays The Joker. Not Robert De Niro.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Actual Movie Ticket


Gemini Man

2019 (117 min)

We're all very familiar with Will Smith and what he's capable of. I think this is his best performance if not the best performance of the year by anyone. You've had Bicentennial Man, now you have Gemini Man and may it's flag wave forever. This is great movie and I do believe there will be a Gemini Man 2 because this is the start of a great franchise.

4 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Additional Bag That Goes to Tim and Gregg

The Addams Family

2019 (87 min)

I don't think that's what they did at all

5 Bags of Popcorn

Mister America

2019 (89 min)

He had stuff that was totally legal that he filmed at the VFA. Hours and hours of this stuff that was completely legitimate to use. And he didn't use - Instead he uses this stuff that's illegal.

3 Bags of Popcorn

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

2019 (118 min)

Sometimes the sequel is the second movie - you have the 2 in it - and the 2 should almost indicate how many times better it is than the original.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Little Sprinkling of Pixie Dust

Terminator: Dark Fate

2019 (128 min)

This is actually the 6th Terminator movie, so they're creeping up there. Watch out Police Academy, you're gonna lose your spot in the Guinness Book.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 5 'T' Bags to Hold Them

Motherless Brooklyn

2019 (144 min)

It feels like what they used to call film noir. Those were black and white, this one's in color. So some things do get improved upon during time.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Set of Paints


2019 (138 min)

This was a remake of the 1976 Midway which starred Henry Fonda whose son Peter Fonda just passed away and of course you have Jane Fonda, as well. She's not in this movie, neither is Henry Fonda, none of the Fonda's were in this but Henry was in the 1976 Midway.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Stopwatch

Arctic Dogs

2019 (92 min)

I think Hollywood...this is the year they've discovered ICE as something that you can see on screen. It creates sort of a white screen, so if you go to an older movie theater or some of these dollar movie theaters sometimes [you see] all that white ice and then you see that the screen needs repair.

5 Bags of Popcorn, Some White Tape

Frozen II

2019 (103 min)

LAPD have taken Mark, they've arrested Mark in North Hollywood. Now he's downtown being booked on charges that I don't even understand because he wasn't doing anything wrong.

5 Bags of Popcorn

21 Bridges

2019 (99 min)

I also wanted to call because I was supposed to give you the reviews and I was not able to be there because I'm down at the police station.

It's a delight for all ages. I can't stop laughing.

100 Kilos

2001 (89 min)

This is is kind of a story about some drug dealers, and they get into some nasty business.

Dick Tracy

1990 (105 min)

Today on my segment Popcorn Classics we have Dick Tracy starring Warren Beatty

Next of Kin

1989 (108 min)

This is kind of an unofficial sequel to Dirty Dancing and Roadhouse and all the Patrick Swayze movies

Creature from the Black Lagoon

1954 (79 min)

There's nothing new under the sun, and certainly virtual reality has been done and done to death. It all started here in 1954 with The Creature From The Black Lagoon.

Training Day

2001 (122 min)

This is actually an interesting edition of Training Day in that it has an alternate ending.

Eye for an Eye

1996 (101 min)

This is a thriller about the search for justice in a just world and it's 102 minutes

The Punisher

2004 (124 min)

It's again a movie about war, crime, cruelty, and injustice - the four pillars of any exciting movie. It is 122 minutes.

Double Exposure

1994 (93 min)

This is a revenge movie. It was released by Prism Entertainment. And it is 93 minutes.


1998 (95 min)

This is a...well, it's about a sexy seductress who cunningly lures the victims with her beauty.

36 Hours to Die

1999 (90 min)

Again, it's a thriller. There's a very harrowing heart attack scene in this movie.


1998 (120 min)

91 minutes. Again, it's always close to 90 minutes for these.

The Life of David Gale

2003 (130 min)

It's a thriller. Kind of a conspiracy movie about a professor who is accused of a murder and it's up to you as a viewer to figure out whether or not he actually did the murder, so it keeps you on the edge of your seat.

The Mod Squad

1999 (92 min)

This was a TV show back in the day but they sort of hipped it up with some stylized characters

A Simple Twist of Fate

1994 (106 min)

He's made a lot of great movies. This isn't one of them. It's a good movie.

Jurassic Park

1993 (127 min)

When you put this in your video player. It starts out and you think you're watching Jurassic Park, and then it's wild - every line of dialogue is totally in Spanish.

My Giant

1998 (103 min)

It's very funny to see these guys together and just look at the difference between their heights

The Family Man

2000 (125 min)

This is why I set up this system - to prevent thieves

Christmas with the Kranks

2004 (99 min)

It's sort of an instant family classic. You've got to see it.

Six Days Seven Nights

1998 (98 min)

Harrison Ford delivers in this fim, it's pretty exciting.

Jack Frost

1998 (101 min)

You might say "why are we doing Christmas movies in summer?" Well the good Christmas movies are movies you can watch year round.

Baby Boom

1987 (110 min)

She has, you know, inherited a baby and it's a lot of fun

Forget Paris

1995 (101 min)

If you loved 'When Harry Met Sally' you're going to love 'Forget Paris'

Medicine Man

1992 (106 min)

I saw this quite some time ago, as well. But I do remember that it was sort of an instant classic at the time

The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella

1976 (127 min)

Today's Popcorn Classic is a pretty interesting film. It's from 1976.


1996 (117 min)

You'd have to agree that having 100 Michael Keaton's is not just a great idea for a movie but it would be a great idea for Hollywood

Twilight Zone: The Movie

1983 (101 min)

The Twilight movies are based on books, they have nothing to do with this movie

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

2012 (169 min)

It's not on VHS, I had to actually tape this because - I don't know why - they just don't make these anymore


1994 (100 min)

I remember this one. This is a good one. Yeah...I've seen this a couple times.

Blues Brothers 2000

1998 (123 min)

I think it's better than the original. I'd like to see 'Blues Brothers 2014' maybe later this year

Murphy's Romance

1985 (107 min)

The film doesn't really work

Q & A

1990 (132 min)

It was directed by the director of 'Serpico', 'Dog Day Afternoon', and 'Network'. It's not as good as any of those movies.

Son of the Pink Panther

1993 (93 min)

I think it's strange that they put 3 stars on the cover when it's clearly a 5 bag quality movie.

Man Trouble

1992 (100 min)

I just bought this last week, I haven't had a chance to see it

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

2003 (116 min)

It's kind of a more modern spin on the classic Goldie Hawn movies

Our Song

2000 (95 min)

It's a contemporary teen movie. A coming of age tale set in Brooklyn.

Blue Streak

1999 (93 min)

This is an interesting movie, it's a lot of fun. I consider it one of the all time great popcorn classics

Swing Shift

1984 (100 min)

If you see Swing Shift you'll see the roots of Kate Hudon's comedic timing, which she learned from her mother

The Wood

1999 (106 min)

An unforgettable tale of laughs

Holiday Heart

2000 (100 min)

It's essentually a filmed play with a little more Hollywood razz-ma-tazz

A Vow to Kill

1995 (87 min)

Now essentially this IS the Victorville Film Archive. This was in my car so this is the VFA now.

How to Deal

2003 (101 min)

This is a movie about a high school student who is convinced that true love doesn't exist


1992 (102 min)

I gotta say...this is a funny movie

Two Weeks Notice

2002 (101 min)

This is a romantic comedy that I highly recommend
