Movie Ratings and Reviews

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
½

I can neither confirm nor deny if this is my favorite summer blockbuster of 2015 so far.

Terminator Genisys
½

A solid reboot to what was an excellent franchise from 1984-1991.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
½

Armitage and Freeman are the only standouts in this action packed film which started off way too fast.

Gone Girl
Gone Girl(2014)

For a majority of the film, we are left on the edge of our seats then in the final 20 minutes, we wonder if the ending was directed by a child.

The Maze Runner
½

As the Hunger Games saga is coming to a close, The Maze Runner Saga is ready to take over.

Step Up: All In

The directors need to step up on making these films.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
½

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes isn't just a film, it's a journey through humanity and teaches a great lesson that we can be everything we despise.

Into The Storm

Chances of being a decent film was sucked away by the twister.

Guardians of the Galaxy
½

Entertaining and Hilarious but nothing to memorable

Godzilla
Godzilla(2014)

While the movie was decent, lacking the title character and plot holes all over.

Henry V
Henry V(1989)
½

Words can't describe how amazing this rendition of Henry V is.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Great blockbuster, Jackson has yet to fail with middle earth

12 Years a Slave
½

12 years a slave really show's the horror of slavery. Ejiofor was simply amazing and Fassbender was stupendous.

Mr. Holland's Opus

Uplifting and Powerful film

Lee Daniels' The Butler
½

Lee Daniels perfectly directs this film on the Civil Rights Movement.

Kick-Ass 2
Kick-Ass 2(2013)
½

If there was an oscar for worst film of the year, I think this is a winner

Elysium
Elysium(2013)

The story of Elysium is too cliche but the acting from Sharlto Copley is magnificent but not enough too save the film.

C.R.A.Z.Y.
C.R.A.Z.Y.(2005)
½

Emotional and hilarious

District 9
District 9(2009)

Is adding Aliens the only way to show how bad racism is to a large audience?

Schindler's List

Gripping and heartbreaking tale of the holocaust

Millions
Millions(2005)

A classic that all children should watch

The Conjuring
½

Finally a decent horror film

The Fighter
The Fighter(2010)

The Fighter is a great inspirational film about boxing and family.

Pacific Rim
Pacific Rim(2013)
½

Although the visuals were stunning, Pacific Rim was just another over-hyped block buster

The Hangover
The Hangover(2009)

I guess if there is nothing else to watch, might as well give this a try

Man of Steel
Man of Steel(2013)
½

Could possibly revolutionize Superman forever

Romeo + Juliet

More of a disaster than a tragedy

Hamlet
Hamlet(1996)
½

One of the best depictions of Shakespeare's work

Thirteen Days
½

Solid depiction of the Cuban Missile Crisis

Oblivion
Oblivion(2013)

The editing team was definitely and effective team, not so much on the directors and story writers side.

World Trade Center

An event so tragic shouldn't portray the perspective of only two men

Hotel Rwanda
Hotel Rwanda(2004)
½

Powerful and gripping tale of the Rwandan Genocide.

The Great Dictator

One of the greatest classics in history of film

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

A Classic that will live on for generations to come

Flyboys
Flyboys(2006)

Completely biased film of the first world war making it look like the Americans were the true heroes.

The Red Baron (Der rote Baron)

Red Baron has very little energy in the film despite all the dogfights

Lincoln
Lincoln(2012)

Unlike many movies, Lincoln made me feel I was living during the greatest moment of the Civil War

Olympus Has Fallen

Too much violence, what? Do they think this is die hard? Terrible Propaganda

42
42(2013)

42 is an excellent film for those interested in the topic of Social Justice. Although i'm not a huge fan of the ball game, it can inspire anyone. Solid 82/100 and a great way to introduce a great to the new generation.

Gangster Squad

Not sure if people are trying to follow the trend by copying all top critics. Gangster Squad was a decent film, although not as good as The Untouchables or LA Confidential, it isn't fair to compare 1 movie to others.
