Movie Ratings and Reviews

The Hills Have Eyes

It helps to have Wes Craven for input, but even then the characters and overall acting didn't seem to do well. Though the story was interesting and the film was fun at times.

Romeo and Juliet

The Best adaptation of William Shakespeare's Masterpiece. Great Acting, Wonderful Visuals and overall a Winner in every aspect.

I Know Who Killed Me

Granted, this film actually had an interesting premise of split personalities and what not, but the execution was terrible. The Writers had a concept but had no idea what to do with it. No wonder this film received 8 Razzie Awards.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry

This film meant well, but really more than half the film the cast and script are Making very offensive stereotypes of the LGBT community.

Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo

A really ridiculous sequel, I have yet to see anything remotely good about this film. It's filled with gross out humor, not real witty humor. Also, Deuce Bigalow has become rather annoying and stupid as a character.

Easy A
Easy A (2010)

There is nothing to hate about this movie. It's funny and feels very much like a John Hughes movie of the 90's without it feeling like a remake. Emma Stone and Amanda Bynes shine in their roles.

Sydney White
Sydney White (2007)

I didn't expect a lot from this movie and I certainly didn't leave with a lot. Sydney White is predictable but I had fun watching it. Amanda Bynes was fun but the overall story was predictable and Sara Paxton was a real bummer as a modern "Evil Queen".

I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman)
½

Though I thought the long and disgusting Rape scenes were completely unnecessary, the film I believe speaks to the dark side in us all. This woman, Jenny, is raped and left for dead. Before this horrific event, she is very innocent and really doesn't know about the evils in this world. After she is violated by these men, she becomes a woman with vengeance and Darkness inside her. This film sparked controversy because well it was way ahead of it's time. It also raised the question about difference between justice and Revenge.

Orphan
Orphan (2009)

Though it might be predictable, Orphan was still a true thrill ride and scary at times. There is a twist ending I didn't see coming at all and of course the cast did an excellent job.

17 Again
17 Again (2009)

I will admit this film does have it's fun moments. But Zach Efron seems out of place. He still needs to work on his acting. This isn't Disney Channel anymore.

Ice Princess
Ice Princess (2005)

Ice Princess? More like Cinderella on Ice. The film did mean well, but at the same time we've seen these plot points too many times before.

The Da Vinci Code

Not only does Tom Hanks seem very out of place in this picture, but it's just too long. Or at least it felt like it. The characters and story seem too boring for me to care about anything going on in the film.

Because I Said So

The movie seems more like a chore. The absolute boredom of this movie is staggering. Forgettable plot and really bad performances all round.

Guess Who
Guess Who (2005)

The downfalls of this film come to two things. First, Ashton Kutcher being casted in a lead role. Secondly, the film goes more toward comedy. To that effect, the message of "Marry who you love" gets lost.

What Happens in Vegas

Though the concept of this film is one a lot of people can relate too, Ashton Kutcher is horribly miscast and even Cameron Diaz seems out of place. Maybe if the film's script was rewritten and the cast was looked over one more time maybe the movie would've been better.

Shrek Forever After
½

Though still inferior of the first two, Shrek Forever After is an improvement over Shrek the Third. Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz are still in top form a well as Eddie Murphy. But the story seems a little too boring and not very fun.

Crazy/ Beautiful
½

Though far from a romantic classic, Crazy/Beautiful really is a film to be experienced. The Story and Characters are just a delight and touching.

Red Riding Hood

Though Amanda Seyfried is good in her role, the movie's plot seems not only following a formula, but extremely boring. It's pretty much a toned down version of "Twilight".

Mamma Mia!
Mamma Mia! (2008)
½

Though the film can be fun at times, it can also be extremely exhausting and boring. Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried do wonderfully in their roles, but the musical numbers are drawn out and seem longer than they are (with the exceptions of "Mamma Mia" and "Dancing Queen".

It's Complicated

Though nothing special in the Romantic Comedy Genre, "It's Complicated" is an enjoyable film. With a few laughs here and there and great performances by the lead performances.

The Pink Panther
½

My beef with this film was that the comedy was so over top and stupid that it wasn't funny at all. Three questions come up when thinking about this film. Why did Steve Martin sign on to do this film? Why is Beyoncé even in this film? Why oh why was this movie even made in the first place?

Bewitched
Bewitched (2005)
½

Bewitched is far from perfect, maybe if Will Ferrell wasn't casted and the script got a little more revision my rating would be higher.

The Roommate
The Roommate (2011)

Not only is this film NOT Scary at all, there is absolutely no suspense or character development. The films is way too predictable and formualtic for me to even want to care about anyone in this film.

Dr. Seuss - The Cat in the Hat
½

Looking back at my childhood, I was excited for this film. But then as I got older, I realized this film really is nothing like the book and worse... Alec Baldwin plays a "villain".

House of Wax
House of Wax (2005)

House of Wax can be fun, but at the same time we've see many horror tools in other Slasher flicks. I am still wondering why Paris Hilton is in this film.

Mean Girls
Mean Girls (2004)

Funny and witty at the same time, it features good performances by Lindsay Lohan and Tina Fey in particular. Why only 4 stars? Well the film kind of loses it's watch value after the first time you see it.

Megamind
Megamind (2010)

"Megamind" may not be a DreamWorks classic Like "Shrek" or "Kung Fu Panda", But it is a fun film thanks to performances by Tina Fey and Will Ferrell.

John Tucker Must Die

John Tucker Must Die is a fun film, though not the best I've ever seen. I do agree with the Tomatometer that it would've been better as a horror film.

Prom Night
Prom Night (2008)

Though the film does little to impress or scare it's audience, it actually is a lot better than the original film.

Obsessed
Obsessed (2009)

Though the film Is predictable and bad, it was fun bad. The fight between Beyoncé and Ali Larter Actually has unintentional hilarity.

Yours, Mine & Ours
½

I only saw 15 minutes of this film, all I have to say is one word... boring. Maybe this could've won the Razzie Gold.

The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle
½

Maybe if the film was pure cartoon, not a cartoon live action hybrid. It's strange to have cartoon characters running around in the real world. (Ahem, Smurfs? )

This Means War
½

One of the worst Spy Comedies ever made. Reese WitherSpoon and Chris Pine were so out of place in this project. Also an incredibly lazy script is to blame. Too think the only bright spot is Chelsea Handler.

Sorority Row
Sorority Row (2009)

Though nothing special or remarkable, Sorority Row is still a fun thrill ride and can be scary at times.

Bruce Almighty
½

I have yet to understand what critics have against this movie. Too bad because they have no idea what they're missing. Hilarious and very touching with a message.

Evan Almighty

Though the film means well, it comes off as a Rip off of Bruce Almighty rather than a sequel. Not many fans of the original film really care about Evan.

Little Man
Little Man (2006)

Probably one of the most boring and stupidest comedies ever made. Maybe the Wayans brothers should stop acting for awhile.

Brothers
Brothers (2009)

I was expecting just a horror film type from this movie. But what I got was so much better than that. It was more of a human nature study on PTSD. Along with that were the performances by Tobey Maguire, Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The Karate Kid

This remake is not terrible, but very boring. Maybe if the script was revised, and Jaden Smith trained or re casted. It would've been better.

Kung Fu Panda
½

Though the sequel is just as good, the original Kung Fu Panda film really is a treat.

Despicable Me

An unexpected Charm about this film. Though slightly kid ish, it can still be enjoyed by adults who are also kids at heart.

Up
Up (2009)
½

This movie really deserves the Oscar gold. Touching, moving, funny and sometimes a tearjerker. Probably one of Disney's best films.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

I don't know what the critics see in this movie, it is really boring for two reasons. Aliens and Shia Lebouf.

Shrek the Third

Though not the best, Shrek still has some funny moments along with Donkey.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon
½

Maybe it should've been called "Transformers 3: It's Dark on the moon" . Seriously, replacing Megan Fox with an even dumber bimbo wouldn't make this series any better.

Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3 (2010)

The series gets better, maybe we should have a fourth entry if done correctly.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

The most boring of the series. I nearly fall asleep anytime Orlando Bloom or Keria Knightly were on the screen.

The Dark Knight

Probably even greater than Batman Begins. Great Story, Action and of course Heath Ledger's Breath taking Performance as Joker.

Oz the Great and Powerful

One of the best films of the year, Oz the Great and Powerful really is a treat. Though it can never live up to the 1939 film, it still is a great film. Highlights, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and the wonderful Story.

Alice in Wonderland

Not many people understand the world of Wonderland because well it's different from other fairy tales. This is a great film with visuals and story to match.

Batman & Robin

All Good things must come to an end, and the end starts here. Though a great performance by Alicia Silverstone and George Clooney does okay as Batman, This Sequel is very dull and full of bad performances by Arnold Schwarzenegger and other supporting cast.

Batman Forever

A waste of time, Van Kilmer such never have been Batman. The film really is boring and the script such have gone to the paper shredder. Jim Carrey however was great at being the Riddler. Still, even he couldn't save this disaster of a sequel. .

The Wedding Planner

Maybe this movie tried too hard to be funny, or maybe it suffered because the script was so boring. All in all, Jennifer tried her best but the movie was disappointing.

Shrek
Shrek (2001)

Remember when Eddie Murphy and Mike Myers were funny? Remember when this movie was part of our childhood collection? Yes me too.

Max Payne
Max Payne (2008)

Max Payne needs to stay a video game. Or at least get a new film script. The movie got too supernatural and unrealistic.

A Thousand Words

It was terrible. Eddie Murphy trying to be serious in a comedic role. This film gets rid of his voice and the famous laugh that made us laugh for years. What a waste of his time and of course our time.

Grown Ups
Grown Ups (2010)

Grown ups seems fun, until you realize not even children act as ridiculous as Adam Sandler and Kevin James. Bright spots? Chris Rock, Salma Hayek and few funny jokes.

Monster
Monster (2004)

Very gripping, interesting and at times scary in a good way. This film gives an almost accurate portrayal of the first female predator serial Killer.

Trouble with the Curve
½

Not the best film in the world, but still worth seeing. Amy Adams and Eastwood have great energy. Even Timberlake wasn't bad.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

One of the only films where I like Jessica Biel. Great story and action are at balance. If only Michael By toned down the excessive gore.

Battleship
Battleship (2012)

You would think after the disasters of the three Transformers movies, no one would even think of making a film surrounding a game or toy.

The Ugly Truth

Katherine Heigl needs a new agent, fast. This film just screams "you're Fired from acting"!

Jack and Jill

Some comedians are good at dressing up in drag and becoming a whole new character. Adam Sandler isn't one of them.

Marvel's The Avengers

Though considered among film goers, I was out of it after 15 minutes. Though there is a lot action, the story and it's characters get lost in the confusion.

Les Misérables

Anne Hathaway deserves her Golden Globe. Along with her amazing voice, Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried and the res of the cast hold up well. Hopefully this will win big at the Oscars.

I Love You Beth Cooper

The movie is not bad, but could've been better written and casted. Hayden's acting is something to be desired

Take Me Home Tonight
½

Too bad the actors had so much potential, but the movie tries too hard to be like a John Hughes movie of the 80's. The jokes are dated and the film suffers through a bad script.

My Bloody Valentine 3-D
½

The film suffers too much Gore and a really bad ending. Though Jamie King and Jensen Ackles are minor plus'.

When a Stranger Calls

Probably the worst remake we the audience didn't need. And the Razzie for Worst remake goes to... When A Stranger Calls.

Halloween
Halloween (2007)

This remake does have an actual origin story to Michael Myers. but despite the great story the movie suffers a lot due to bad acting, slow pacing and random screaming.

Friday the 13th
½

Though the movie has great potential and the actors aren't too bad, Friday the 13th is just another sequel to this down hill horror franchise.

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
½

Not a classic, but a comedy that is well done and Mike Meyers is at his best. Of course, everyone loves Dr. Evil as well.

Batman Returns

Though Michael Keaton's Batman is not the best, the film itself is well done. Danny DeVito and Michelle Pfeiffer really much deserve a lot of props for their roles as Penguin and Catwoman. The story I believe is a little weak but strong enough to keep us interested.

Snow White and the Huntsman

Charlize Theron does well along with Chris Hemsworth. Kristen tries, but still has that "Bella stare". The story is great, but still too long and at times confusing.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

Though not terrible, the movie has major flaws for a worst remake award. A semi good Freddy Kruger, dull heroine and dumb ending really make it bad. Though the story and support cast aren't bad at all.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

A rare classic that comes up nowadays. Definitely a film worth seeing for a great story and wonderful characters. Plus, Emma Watson breaks away from her Harry Potter days.

American Reunion

Though much better than the spin off films, American reunion isn't very well done. The Characters are the same and the story doesn't go many places. It relies too much on nostalgic experiences. It is however recommended for fans of the franchise and anyone who wants a good laugh.

Tangled
Tangled (2010)

This film is living proof that Disney still has it's touch. A classic fairy tale that is funny and entertaining for both kids and adults.

H2: Halloween II

Although it has a promising beginning, H2 crashes and burns. A bad ending, badly written script and overloading on gore. This movie should win a Razzie for worst horror sequel/remake.

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3 (2007)
½

Though the movie is sloppy and sand man is very dull, this move does well with the original trio Tobey, Kirsten and James. Story is good, but not great.

Peter Pan
Peter Pan (2003)
½

Though I would've casted Wendy differently and made a better ending, this film really is a classic. It is much closer to the original story by J.M Barrie.

Pitch Perfect

Though it's not a masterpiece, it still is enjoyable and extremely funny. Major highlight is Rebel Wilson as "Fat- Amy". A must see.

Mad Money
Mad Money (2008)

I do love Katie Holmes, Queen Latifah and Diane Keaton in this film. However, the cheesy lines and story make it Razzie worthy.

Just Go with It

Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman are bright spots in this film. But Adam Sandler, Nick Swardson, and the overall dumbness of this movie bogs it down.

The Bounty Hunter

Jennifer Aniston is okay, but the film's supporting cast and weak story make this film very dull despite the overloads of corny action and script.

Wreck-it Ralph

Disney is slowly but surely coming back to Hollywood status. Wreck It Ralph is filled with a Great story, wonderful characters and in depth meaning. It truly is a masterpiece.

Mirror Mirror

Julia Roberts shines in this film, but Lily Collins and Armie Hammer should win a Razzie for Worst on Screen couple as well as Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Supporting Actress. Visuals and story are good, but not good enough to make a classic picture.

Sex and the City
½

I really wanted to like the film, but it seemed like a really bad episode of the successful TV Show. Of course, it ended predictably.

The Last Airbender
½

The film had potential, but M.Night totally ruined what could have been a great thing. Hopefully no sequel will be made.

Ted
Ted (2012)

The film is good, a sort of "Seth Macfarlane" classic. Funny and witty but stupid in a few parts. This films is recommended but not the best.

Catwoman
Catwoman (2004)

Pitof and the writers of Catwoman made a sort of spinoff with Patience Philips. However, it doesn't work since they made Catwoman into a dominatrix with a cat fetish.

Scream 4
Scream 4 (2011)

Scream 4 was really great, yes it does seem like another sequel but explores the social media's dark side. Emma Roberts and Neve Campbell were major highlights.

Brave
Brave (2012)

Not what I expected, the film goes into a different direction Disney hasn't seen. A relationship between mother and daughter. Along with the gripping story and wonderful character of Merida, it's a film worth seeing.

Tron Legacy
Tron Legacy (2010)

The only thing great about the film is the visuals, but the characters and story can be described in one word- bland.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Jim Carrey is great, but besides that the film seems more silly than the cartoon adaptation.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

This movie very much deserves the Razzie award for worst Picture of 2012. A twist ending that doesn't work. Kristen Stewart might be getting a little better at acting, but not enough for me to be interested in Bella's new life as a vampire.

The Amazing Spider-Man
½

Despite another Spider Man origin story, the film does very well.

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight rises, though filled with minor plot holes, is a great conclusion to the Christopher Nolan's trilogy. Major Props to Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway.
