THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

THE GOAL FOR 2018: 200 MOVIES WATCHED BY MIDNIGHT NEW YEAR'S EVE!  (AFTER TOPPING OUT AT 194 in 2017)

CAN HE DO IT?

​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

SELF/LESS (2015)







 



#4 on the 2016 movie countdown is last year's Self/Less which is awful! Ben Kingsley is a rich tycoon who is dying. He discovers a shady organization who can make him live again - as Ryan Reynolds! The major problem here is that you do not believe for a second that Reynolds is Kingsley, that one man has become another. It then morphs into an action/chase movie and thoroughly screws up its promising premise. This was done SO much better in the excellent John Frankenheimer thriller Seconds (1966) with Rock Hudson in the performance of his career. See that if at all possible - not this dreck.
