Movie Reviews: Cat's Eye + The Phantom Of The Opera + 12 Angry Men 🐱‍💻🐱‍👤🐱‍👓🐱‍🚀🐱‍💻🐱‍👤🐱‍

Cat's Eye (1985)
This is a dull anthology. James Woods tries to quit smoking in 'Quitters Inc', a man is made to walk a ledge in 'The Ledge' and Drew Barrymore is menaced in the final section by an evil troll and her bitch mother. The characters are just awful and contemptibly helpless and I only cared about the cat (which gets a happy ending). This was 80s and bad.

Best Lines:

“There's a rather disturbed individual we keep around here just for such distasteful jobs.”

“Aging tennis pros with drug records.”

The Phantom Of The Opera (1989)

Shockingly bad.

12 Angry Men (1957)
Terribly earnest.
