Rating History

Lockout (2012)
11 months ago via Flixster

Sure, it's cliche but it's got all the Bessonesque requirements: a quick pace, over the top characters and tons of solid action. Leave your mind at the door but enjoy the guns & explosions.

The Big Short
The Big Short (2015)

Solid performances make this complex story palatable.

Bone Tomahawk
Bone Tomahawk (2015)
16 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I don't think I've ever seen a western horror film, that is until now. It's violent, gruesome and downright strange but the great actors make it palatable. If you like simple westerns with a bit of horror on the side, then this one is for you. Warning: Watch on an empty stomach... or hours before or after you eat, you know, like swimming.

The Martian
The Martian (2015)
17 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A solid and suspenseful thriller by Ridley. The middle eastern country of Jordan fills in for Mars quite beautifully. Damon doesn't give us anything too deep, but an exciting ride!

Blackhat (2015)
2 years ago via Flixster

After many years of phenomenal film making, Michael Mann has finally let me down. Although technically proficient, I found Blackhat's lackluster story utterly boring. And for a movie about hacking, there were only a couple brief scenes of it. And who's great idea was it to have Thor as a muscle headed MIT hacker? Hemsworth's performances are usually "okay" in most films, but this one was a flat as Keira Knightly (she's still gorgeous though). Michael Mann, I'm very disappointed -- I guess someone has to pay his mortgage.
