Nine Lives

Director: Barry Sonnenfeld

Year: 2016     Run Time: 87 min

A stuffy businessman finds himself trapped inside the body of his family's cat.

Gregg's Review

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

Tim's Review

I'm sorry I'm talking this way, I'm trying not to breathe out my nose. I don't want the ideas from my head to come out of my nose. I want everything to stay inside.

5 Bags of Popcorn

Suicide Squad

Director: David Ayer

Year: 2016     Run Time: 123 min

A secret government agency recruits some of the most dangerous incarcerated super-villains to form a defensive task force. Their first mission: save the world from the apocalypse.

Gregg's Review

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

Tim's Review

What made me like this movie the most is it made me laugh, and I need a laugh right now because things are not going well. And, you know, Ayaka is in Japan right now as she discusses terminating our pregnancy.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Cup of Soda

On Cinema On Location
If you've seen the movie you might remember a scene that was filmed exactly where I'm standing, in front of this old movie theater.

Broken Horses

Director: Vidhu Vinod Chopra

Year: 2015     Run Time: 101 min

The bonds of brotherhood, the laws of loyalty, and the futility of violence in the shadows of the US Mexico border gang wars.
