The Lazarus Effect

Great cast but what a snooze fest

The Expendables 3

Makes the first two expendables look like chick flicks.

Neighbors
Neighbors(2014)
½

Hilarious. Great cast.

Pain & Gain
Pain & Gain(2013)
½

Worth watching for Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson.

The World's End

Edgar Wright can do no wrong by me.

Only God Forgives

follow up to drive, disappointing and pretentious.

Red Hill
Red Hill(2010)

fantastic film by a first time director. sure to be an american remake to come.

Gangster Squad
½

fantastic cast wasted on a mediocre script.

The Collection
½

not exactly high art, but surprisingly effective splatter flick albeit silly at times.

Killing Them Softly

this movie may have been good if its message was just a bit more subtle, instead of its need to hammer it in my brain every scene.

Wrong
Wrong(2013)

absurdist done right.

A Good Day To Die Hard
½

Lifeless. Bruce Willis showed up, but John McClane was nowhere to be found.

Seven Psychopaths
½

One of the more interesting movies I have seen in awhile.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

doesn't quite reach the heights of any lord of the rings films, but it's a satisfying start.

one of the most charming movies I've seen all year.

Super 8
Super 8(2011)

charming light sci-fi flick.

Nowhere near as bad as reviews have made it out to be, just not as great as it had the potential to be with this superheroes great mythology.

½

koreans are making way better movies than we are.

½

you can find this movie under the definition of middle of the road.
