Denzel in probably the best performance of his movie career here(well, arguably I should say). It's another Spike Lee joint, so as usual there's going to be a bit of a political message, which is fine as it is his movie. It's also a very long movie, as I had to split this over two separate days. It's good, but I wouldn't put this in my Top list of autobiographical movies though.. I think mainly due to the super long run time.
A young Jeff Bridges stars in this fish out of water story, a "starman" from some planet deep in space. He's got the personality of a goofy T-800(maybe like Arnold's version in T2), but more lovable I guess? Oddly enough this features a road trip from Wisconsin to Arizona, something I know about a little too well. Overall it's pretty good, gets a little too loveydovey at the end, but yeah not bad.
From the same studio that made Coraline and Kubo & The Two Strings, I thought this would have been a whole lot better. It's not a horrible showing, much prefer this to that horrible and annoying movie Frozen in fact. You get maybe a few chuckle worthy moments here and there, but that's basically it really. Slightly better than a meh.
Didn't really expect much from this, in fact I thought this was going to be outright crappy.. a movie about Nazi zombies, sounds cheesy right? Surprised this wasn't directed by Eli Roth, violent to the max and action heavy. Overall it's not to be taken seriously, but it's still interesting enough.
One of those classic noir movies, this one famous for the well known line "All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up." The main character here is a bit of an annoying jack-ass for most of the movie and I have to say I knew how this was going to turn out in the end(pretty obvious when you think about it). Still, it's classic cinema at its finest and like the old saying goes, "They don't make them like they used to."
Well, I can certainly see why this got slammed by critics and the general audience alike as it is pretty damn terrible. Seems like since Talladega Nights, the comedic duo of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have gone so downhill. Wasn't crazy about Stepbrothers but at least it made me laugh a few times. This was just stupid nonsense really. How they managed to drag in the great Ralph Fiennes in this I'll never know.
Man if this doesn't bring back some childhood memories.. Very insightful stuff about Mr. Rogers, both about himself and the show all the way from the very beginning. Gets a bit emotional too, not gonna lie. Definitely worth a watch, even if you've somehow never watched an episode as a kid.
It's been a long while since I saw the original, never read the book, so kinda went into this one not knowing what to expect. In terms of comparing it to other modern day horror movies, it's slightly better than average..? Overall it's still pretty kooky and not really all that "scary". Could've been much worse than it was, but obviously could've been better too. Meh.
This one is a tricky one to give a rating for since a lot of it is the inspiration for the first volume of Kill Bill, so in a way I'm a bit jaded to the story here. It's a good movie, no doubt, love the opening/ending theme to this(again, due to Kill Bill). Only tiny bits here and there did it drag slightly, and thus I dozed off a little hah, but other than that I give this my seal of approval.
Once again, Old Man Eastwood is back at it in the lead role, leading a life where he just doesn't understand the new generation. This time around he's a drug mule(hence the title) which makes for some interesting, and very awkward scenes. I feel like this was trying to recapture some of that same magic Gran Turino had, but I just wasn't really feeling it here. Eastwood does fine I suppose, the supporting case is decent as well. Still, this gets a "meh".
Interesting premise, although with these sorta movies you can pretty much guess the outcome. I knew this wasn't going to have one of those depressing anti-climatic endings since that would essentially make it Terminator minus the Terminators(think Skynet). It's alright yeah, but if I want to watch an 80's Matthew Broderick movie, I'll stick with Bueller.
Really loved the West Texas setting here, it was beautifully shot. Acting was excellent, love seeing Jeff Bridges play a Texas Ranger. Pine and Foster are great in the lead roles as brothers on the run after robbing from a chain of small time banks. Essentially it's a modern day Western, great watch.
Feels very much like a Miyazaki film, especially when Kun goes through his "trippy" adventures in the garden. This Kun is a rotten, annoying little brat.. which four year olds tend to be sometimes I suppose, so having that as the main protagonist is not so great, but the story makes up for it. I highly recommend watching this in the original Japanese audio, since the English dub just doesn't work at all(for me anyways).
Whew, this was a long one. The original Passion of the Christ, but told in a completely different way. This one features a sort of "alternate reality" at the end, hence the Last Temptation part, which was interesting. Willem Dafoe is absolutely amazing in the lead role. Surprise cameo by David Bowie in this too. Good, not great.
Not exactly the most intruiging story. JLaw's character invents an updated version of a mop and gets her idea taken by a parts manufacturer. The acting is top notch by her I'll say that, but that's about all this had going for it even with the mini Silver Lines Playbook reunion here
Essentially boils down to a hipster love story, which for me is blah. Zooey Deschanel is cute indeed, and JGL has his charms but for the most part was a bit on the annoying side. Not a fan of the back and forth timeline either. Overall a big MEH.
Seems like a lot of these 70's classic sci-fi movies tend to be slower paced, which is true here that's for sure. Sort of an inspiration for MST3K(without the evil mads and watching cheesy movies), as a guy in outer space is all alone with his two 'robot pals' as they take care of the last forests of Earth. Why they're given the order to blow them up I'll never understand, but maybe in this fictional universe they have an idiot as President too..
Wasn't really a huge fan of "Chapter I", it was decent in some bits but felt kinda silly for the most part. This one is slightly better, but... IT'S FUCKING LONG. The scares are about on par, still silly at times(I mean, IT is a clown so it shouldn't be too surprising). The major gripe is the run time I'd say and the way they off Pennywise was absurd I gotta say. I didn't read the book or remember much of the original TV movie, so I can't speak on how it compares to those finales. This for sure wouldn't be in my Top 5 or even Top 10 Stephen King adaptations, but at least it's better than what they did with The Dark Tower that's for sure(:sigh:)
Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively make an interesting leading duo. Going into this I was expecting a silly romcom/buddy comedy. I only really gave this a shot because I find both leading ladies absolutely gorgeous. Turns out this went a totally different direction, sorta like a murder mystery/semi-psychological thriller. I approve.
Goddamn this was horrible(hah, get it?) It's basically an MST3K movie with a blockbuster budget. Crap acting, crap CGI, crap everything.. well, the two main actresses in this were gorgeous, that's the only praise I'm giving this movie. Avoid like the plague.
