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.
