Rating History

Lazer Team
Lazer Team (2016)
16 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

The tropes are familiar, which is of course the point. While not perhaps the sharpest parody out there, it is none the less at least reminiscent more serious comedies like Ghostbusters, doing the logical thing and letting the humor come from the people involved rather than necessarily the actual situation. Visually impressive, while the film's budget does show a bit in a few sections it none the less manages to impress at many points.

Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's a bitter old man in a younger, handsomer man's body ranting like a lunatic for about 76 minutes or so (I didn't time the credits and such). Is it possible for a film to have the status of 'citation needed'? Seriously, who has the strawman nutjob be the hero of the film?

The Expendables 3
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Despite a PG 13 rating the film is a very solid action flick with action that is very visible and at times delightfully creative. The cast in general works quite well, even general non-actors such as Ronda Rousey managing okay (though she definitely has room to improve). The film can feel a bit more hollow than the previous entries due to a decision to try and introduce a new, younger team before focusing again on the veterans, leading to a bloated cast that don't get an equal amount of action (arguably one the big things the first film did right). As interesting as learning a bit more about the team's origins was Gibson's villain was still fairly bland if fun. Antonio Banderas ended up being a welcome highlight, but once again Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Dolph Lundgren felt a bit marginalized, as did newcomer Victor Ortiz. None the less the film delivers what it promises and is a fun ride.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

You know what, as problematic as it was, the turtles themselves felt kind of right and Will Arnett was mostly funny. The plot was pretty generic, Megan Fox was incredibly bland, the action was okay to bad, and the villain's motivation was stupid. Still, it isn't nearly as bad as it could have been, and actually had a few decent ideas in there.

Hercules
Hercules (2014)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Despite the interesting premise of playing on the idea that the real Hercules wasn't as awesome as the legends say while still none the less being pretty awesome, the film's plot is nothing special. The cast chemistry is in general pretty solid and most of the action is impressive. The stylized CGI works in the film's favor more than once given the nature of scenes, and the running time helps sell the film more as a popcorn flick than something trying to be of true substance (though the lack of substance is a bit of a shame). That said, Iolaus is one of the most annoying characters I've seen in film all summer, and serious impacted my enjoyment of the film.
