I am definitely aging myself when I tell you that some of my fondest childhood memories were staying up way past my bedtime and catching some weird movie on one of the local channels at 2am or finding a weird VHS tape to rent at West Coast Video.
If you were to scroll through the list of podcasts that I listen to, you would notice something. Amidst all of the gaming, movie and old time radio podcasts, you would see a lot of True Crime podcasts. A lot. Probably more than is acceptable.
Mild-mannered man Tom Stall (Viggo Mortensen) becomes a local hero through an act of violence, which brings to light aspects of his past that will shake his family to its very core.
That is the easy way to describe this movie.
I’m not going to lie. I had a hard time beginning this review. I mean, how does one begin to describe Howard the Duck?
Our second installment of Bond finds him going up against the Russians in From Russia With Love. Again, I’m less familiar with the Connery Bond films, only having seen them a few times, but this movie was much better than I remembered. Where Dr. No had slow plodding moments, From Russia With Love was slicker and a far more exciting installment of the Bond series.
I have few memories of watching this movie, in fact, I hardly remembered any of it when I sat down to revisit this movie.Which made me both excited and apprehensive at the same time.
