Kevin Israel’s watchlist
- The Devil all the Time (2020)
- Sinister characters converge around a young man devoted to protecting those he loves in a postwar backwoods town teeming with corruption and brutality.
- A very dark movie that wasn’t as good as it could have been. The highlight was seeing Tom Holland stretch his acting wings beyond the MCU. And boy, Spiderman can act! The film really captured the time period, and the characters were all great, but the multiple storylines that finally tied together still felt a little disjointed. It watched like a Quentin Tarantino movie without all the fun oddities that make Quentin great. We also got to see a little more of a non-vampire Robert Pattinson do the acting thing which made me a bit more confident in the upcoming Batman. Don’t let me down Robbie! There was also a pudgy Sebastian Stan shedding his metal arm in favor of a gut and badge. Lots of supes tie-ins here, just wish the movie itself was a little better

The Rock and the unfunny Kevin Hart respectively play a high school nerd who becomes a jacked CIA agent and a high school homecoming king who does what most homecoming kings do, go into accounting. Watching the Rock tower over KH is hilarious because it looks like an older brother take around his dad’s second wife’s kid. But that’s the only funny thing about this film. This is cotton candy and just like eating too much CC, this shit makes you sick. The jokes are stale and basic, the ending is predictable, and whomever the son of a bitch is that told me to watch this…I’ll find you. And make you watch the entire Big Bang Series on a loop.
Typical 80’s high school movie with a ton of stars from the 80’s: Sheen, Ryder, a balding Piven, and Corey Haim. Lucas plays a nerd who falls for the ginger in Summer Rental and the overrated Goonies. The last scene made me scream, “THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN,” where Lucas just jumps into the middle of a high school football game, willy nilly. NOT EVEN WEARING HIS PADS AND HELMET. Yeah, even in the 80’s when parents would tell you, “rub some dirt on it and don’t be a pussy,” this shit wouldn’t have flown. Sans this nonsense, this film stinks as it definitely didn’t age well whatsoever. I swear, any script that had high school bullies got green lit without the studio head making it past page 5.
2/10. Would’ve been a 3 but that football scene can munch on petrified dog shit.

This film is about the extras and background actors in Star Wars. You think it would be interesting but guess what? It’s not. Several people played several different background roles; sometimes wearing masks/makeup, sometimes wearing helmets. That’s it. No new other juicy tales but to be fair, I turned it off after 30 minutes as my patience was destroyed like Hillary’s emails.
