Reel Snippets of 3-10-17

I’m back!

After my hiatus for job search and health reasons, I’m ready to kick back into gear. And what better way to do that than with two movies I’ve been itching to talk about: an outstanding horror movie from a comedian and something I’ve been hinting at for a while now… let’s roll.

Fifty Shades Darker
Get Out

Ronin’s Top 13 Best Movies of 2016

I’m not letting the Oscars beat me this year. I’ve been thorough in trying to chase down movies of yesteryear that might slip through the cracks, but now I think I’ve come up with a list that I can be proud of. Now join me in counting down…

Hey hey, don’t think I’ve abandoned the public in their time of need. I’ve just been getting some things in order that haven’t left a lot of time for reviews. As a consolation, here’s three Snippets for the price of one.

Hidden Figures

Ronin’s Top 13 Worst Movies of 2016

Here it is, everyone. My yearly cleansing. This job isn’t always easy or pleasant, but I’m still glad I get to do it in a way. I just hope that my words will strike a chord with someone who will go on to make a difference in the world of film. Without any further ado, here’s my worst of the year list. Goodbye, 2016. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

Welp, time to finish up the last bits of grunt work for those year end lists. Unfortunately, this is not a day where I’m looking at good movies. Still, I hope you’ll bear with me, even if you disagree, as I look at two films that I meant to catch last year.

Alice Through The Looking Glass

All right, let’s start off the new year by catching up with some of last year’s stragglers. Gotta fill out the best and worst lists, right?

Requiem For A Princess

It’s true… Carrie Fisher is now one with the Force.

I don’t have much energy to find the right words to send her off. It’s really painful that we’ve lost not only the third in a line of sci-fi icon deaths this year (the first two being Jerry Doyle and Ron Glass), but such an amazing woman in general. I hoped one day to meet her, but it looks like I’ll have to wait a lot longer. If you’re looking for a way to honor her, here’s something from a post going around Facebook:
– normalize mental illness and treatment
– take life a little less seriously
– destroy a fascist regime

See you, space cowgirl.

P.S.: We’ve lost the author to Watership Down and Ricky Harris from Everybody Hates Chris. I’m going to have some words with this year when I write my year-end list…

Happy Boxing Day!!!!!

Well, okay, it’s not much of a holiday in the States, but here’s hoping that some international readers will feel appreciated. Anyway, here are two more Snippets. Apologies for the size of one of the images. The website is being weird and not letting me resize it.

It’s Christmas!!!!!

Hard to believe after such a dreadful year that Christmas could still bring me such joy. Whatever the reason, it’s the point of this month and I’m gonna roll with it. With all that said, here’s my Christmas present to you: my review of Rogue One.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and here’s hoping for a Happy New Year.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Hey, it’s 12-12… not 12. Oh well, two out of three isn’t bad. Anyway, let’s look at something we usually only get in December with a Doctor Who special: aliens! This is my review of Arrival.
