Review of Gotti (2018)

I saw Gotti. Travolta got Gotti’s mannerisms down pretty well–Gotti’s strut and his arrogance. The plot was all over the place, though. It kept going back and forth in time. I thought the movie was OK–though not in the league of Goodfellas and The Godfather–in the way it pictured mobster life. The problem with Gotti was it generated little suspense because of its lack of structure.

Review of The Sandman

I highly recommend the crime thriller The Sandman by the Swedish writing duo known as Lars Kepler.  The authors never let up on the throttle in this relentless and bloody shocker.  The suspense mounts as an evil character locked up in an asylum for the criminally insane still manages to terrorize everybody he comes in contact with.  This is the best thriller I’ve read so far this year.  I’m going to make a point of reading another entry in the Joona Linna series, of which this is book 6.

Will you step back from my car? I’m going to start my engine.

I enjoyed the movie American Made.  It’s the fascinating story of the scapegrace pilot Barry Seal who not only worked for the CIA when they were taking on the Sandinistas in Nicaragua but for Pablo Escobar and the Medellin cocaine cartel. Tom Cruise has a blast playing Seal, who becomes involved in all sorts of political skullduggery as he makes himself rich plying his aviation skills to work for anybody that will meet his price, whether they be crooks or politicians.

Best line: “Will you step back from my car? I’m going to start my engine.”
