The 21-Word Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story (Delta In-Flight)

It really wasn't that bad, but it's the first Star Wars movie I've ever seen for the first time in flight.

The 21-Word Review: Pacific Rim: Uprising (Delta In-Flight)

I'm sorry, but I prefer my monsters and giant robot movies with Idris Elba speeches about the apocalypse, if you please.

The 21-Word Review: The Radium Girls by Kate Moore

Don't go in with an agenda, just go in with fundamental humanity and you will get so much more from it.

The 21-Word Review: A Quiet Place

The only movie that I have been to in years with a quiet audience. Perhaps all movies should be silent films.

The 21-Word Review: Nobody Wants to Read Your Sh*t by Steven Pressfield and Shawn Coyne

But my book is really good. Everyone wants to read my stuff. You should buy a copy for your friends.

The 21-Word Review: The Titan (Netflix)

It has Piper and Missandei and a Terminator and a Wilkinson. And junk science that you just have to ignore.

The 21-Word Review: Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (Netflix)


It’s not really a live action version if most of the major characters are still animated. It’s just more updated animation.

The 21-Word Review: Get Out (DVD)


I don’t really like horror movies. This one wasn’t really a horror movie. I regret waiting this long to watch it.

The 21-Word Review: Jurassic Park 2 (Amazon)


I thought maybe I’d outgrown the genre, but then I re-watched the original second movie. This one was just really terrible.

The 21-Word Review: Back to Blood by Tom Wolfe

It would be fascinating to ride around with Mr. Wolfe just to figure out what parts of a city he uses.

The 21-Word Review: Polar (Netflix)


I don’t know what is more offensive, the derivative plot or the fact that a fifty year old is considered ancient.

The 21-Word Review: To Try Men's Souls by Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen


Reads a bit like the DAR essays we wrote in the fifth grade where you got extra points for including details.

The 21-Word Review: Bird Box (Netflix)

After "A Quiet Place" and "Bird Box" I look forward to movies based on lacking other senses. Like "Smell Ya Later."

The 21-Word Review: Ant Man and the Wasp (In-Flight Movie)

I'll watch anything with Evangeline Lilly in it. Even if she is obviously cgi'ed for a majority of the action scenes.

The 21-Word Review: Hotel Artemis (In-Flight Movie)

When the zombies are not quite scary enough for your movie, go with an apocalyptic crowd of disaffected Los Angeleans rioting.

The 21-Word Review: Mission Impossible Fallout (In-Flight Movie)

The mustache did not seem as critical to the plot as I had read. But I suppose the stunts were  spectacular.

The 21-Word Review: Oceans 8 (In-Flight Movie)

It was ok. Some of the cons were a bit contrived compared to the originals. And why exactly is George dead?

The 21-Word Review: Peppermint (in-Flight Movie)

I am a huge fan of Jennifer Garner and have been since Alias. I even liked Elektra. But not this stinker.

The 21-Word Review: The Spy Who Dumped Me (In-Flight Movie)

On every long flight there is always the one movie that one starts and falls asleep during repeatedly. This was it.

The 21-Word Review: Skyscraper (In-Flight Movie)

Die Hard in the Towering Inferno in China with the Rock was probably too long of a title to use here.

The 21-Word Review: Bad Times at the El Royale (in-Flight Movie)

Another let's put a lot of unrelated folks into an isolated structure and kill off one to see what happens flick.

The 21-Word Review: Telecommedy by Scott Wilkinson

Should be mentioned in the same breath with Dickens, Shakespeare, Hemingway, King, Asimov, Rowling, and other dogs my aunts have owned.

The 21-Word Review: The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (Netflix)

I would have watched any one of the vignettes as a complete movie. Especially the Bugs Bunny slash Buster Scruggs story.

The 21-Word Review: BlackkKlansman (Amazon)

The last movie ending that impacted me this way was Spotlight. It's important. See it, pay attention, and try to understand.

The 21-Word Review: Night of the Comet (Netflix)

I missed this movie when it came out in the 80s. I'm not sure how I manged to survive so long.
