Why Snake? Why couldn't you just stay in Cleveland? I mean, you got out of New York...which was amazing, but you never should have gone to LA.
This movie is bad, it had potential, the story is decent, but the execution is not good. Personally, they tried to incorporate far too much CGI into this film and it was done so poorly that the end result is abysmal.
There are too many scenes to count with bad CGI, but my personal favorite (i.e. the worst) is the surfing sequence. First, you can totally tell it's not Kurt Russell surfing, and then you incorporate Steve Buscemi driving next to the tidal wave it's an absolutely disgusting scene.
I loved Escape from New York and it has a fantastic story but this movie clearly didn't need to be made. The only saving grace of this movie is the basketball scene, it honestly is super memorable.
Joaquin Phoenix has an incredible performance in this biopic about John Callahan.
The true star of the show though is Jonah Hill, his role as Callahan's AA sponsor is out of this world. I have never looked at Hill as a serious actor, I mean just look at his resume, but he truly steps forward here. I was blown away at his depth in the role and truly felt his compassion. Joaquin being great wasn't out of the ordinary, I mean he has a long history of being a fantastic actor.
The only real downfall for me on this film was I felt like the whole movie was super quiet...maybe it was a bad speaker system on my end, but I felt like I had to have this movie blasting loud to hear what they were saying. I know that's a silly thing to count against a movie, but for me, it was a pain.
Also, the story structure was kind of all over the place, it was a great story, don't get me wrong but it's not very linear which can make it hard to keep up if you're not fully engaged.
Either way, it was a great movie, I would definitely watch it again.
This is creative storytelling. This is the kind of movie that you watch and just get lost in the story, you get so enamored with everything that is happening that once it's over you start researching.
It's honestly the kind of movie that when I watch it makes me want to be a better person, to strive for more, and it does it in a way that is fresh and that feels great. I will say that there are a few moments that semi-date it (primarily the CGI moments) but aside from that the story is just riveting and enthralling.
It would go on my list as a must watch for anyone that wants to write, produce, etc. It's just phenomenal. Will definitely watch it again.
The Wolfpack is BACK! This time they take on Bangkok in a whirlwind of lapsed memories and booze-filled antics.
I must say I went into this film not exactly knowing what to expect. I absolutely loved the first film, it is honestly one of my all-time favorite comedies. This movie follows the same formula as the last, they drink, they forget, they figure it out. I was actually slightly disappointed that they followed the plot structure so directly from the first movie...it seems a little lazy to me, but I also think, hey it worked last time why not go for it again!
The "three best friends that anyone could have" work well together, as they did last time, for me the biggest downfall of the film is the location and the experiences they go through.
I feel like in the first movie they did a great job of explaining everything thing that occurred through the evening, in this one, it just sort of comes in waves and seems all over the place. They didn't address the fact that the character from the wedding chapel was in this one? I mean I get it, he's supposed to be a different person, but these dudes wouldn't have stopped and been like, "Don't I know you?"
Also, they spend the entire film searching for Teddy and when they finally find him he's totally cool with everything? That makes zero sense to me, he was never relaxed before all this happened and he's been locked in an elevator for almost 2 whole days, Lord knows he's got a crazy infection on that hand.
Overall, the movie still has some great laughs and a few outrageous moments. I would rather watch the first one, but I'd watch this one again.
My favorite part of this film is the Kurt Russell CGI making him appear young...WOW. It's next level.
Such a great story and to be honest I absolutely love what this means for Star-Lord, making him half-human and half-God...CRAZY! I'll definitely watch this again.
He's back, my favorite Avenger...and this time he's facing his toughest opponent yet, his best friend.
To be honest, it's a pretty great film and I'd definitely watch it again.
One of the slowest and dullest movies in the MCU.
I love Thor and his entire story, but this movie just kind of drags...the best part of this film is the redeeming factor of Loki, other than that it's just a little out of whack. I think that they needed to introduce the aether, or the reality stone, but I felt like they lacked in the story, but that's just my opinion.
I'd be ok if I didn't watch this one again.
Tony Stark gets drunk, hooks up with, what I think is a botanist, and then seals his fate forever.
Guy Pearce plays a fantastic role as Aldrich Killian, personally though I love Guy Pearce so I was probably going to dig him no matter what. The only real downfall of this is the whole superpowers that all the villains have...I mean, I get that they had to escalate the level of people Tony is going against, but it seems just a little nuts. Also, the Vice President is involved because his daughter lost a leg? That's not even the worst thing that could happen...he's willing to basically throw his life away because of that? Still, a freaking great film and I'll definitely watch it again.
The team is finally together.
I will admit that going into this film I wasn't sure that Loki was the correct choice for an antagonist, but he astoundingly does an amazing job! I mean, he was the bad guy in the first Thor and for him to be the carry-over villain in The Avengers seemed like it would be stale, but he does a fantastic job. I will admit that I felt like the crew sort of come together with a little more ease than I thought they would. I'm not sure that the death of someone would have been enough to have them all come together in this way, but clearly, I'm wrong...because that's exactly what happened.
A fantastic movie will definitely watch again!
The Great and Mighty Thor falls from Odin's grace in this mythical adventure in the MCU.
It's the first time we are introduced to otherworldly concepts and types of transportation such as the Bifrost in the MCU. Chris Hemsworth, in my opinion, is the perfect Thor. He plays the role so well and also looks the part beautifully. For me, this is the second weakest of the entry-level MCU movies.
It's a great story and really explains Thor's character development, which is truly important for his future in the MCU, but it just isn't extremely strong in terms of story. I think the other biggest downfall is the town that they are in, I read that the town was created for the movie and it honestly looks like it. I know that's a petty thing, but it just really sticks out to me. I also feel like Thor's progression from this crass & arrogant person to a noble and gallant person was super fast! I mean literally in the matter of a few days he realizes his years of folly? I suppose the argument could be made that as a "God" he can see it and adjust quicker.
Either way, I still love the film and would watch it again.
Bruce Banner is back in Marvel's attempt at a second Incredible Hulk film.
I remember watching the Eric Bana Hulk film when I was younger and thinking it was lackluster, I honestly did not expect this to be a sort of continuation on the storyline so I was pretty shocked that they decided to. I absolutely love Edward Norton, but I can't really see him as the Hulk, at least not the hulk that's supposed to fit into the extended MCU. His acting style seems too sharp and crass to be on the same stage as an RDJ or a Chris Evans. I'm not saying he couldn't do it, the contrary actually, I just think that his personality wouldn't have meshed.
I did semi-enjoy the film, but just couldn't really get super excited about it, I felt like there were parts of the film that had promise, but for the most part, it just fell flat to me. Overall, I doubt I would watch this again and will probably skip it on my MCU re-watch binges in the future.
The sequel to the 2008 Box Office hit does not disappoint.
The only real qualm that I had with the first Iron Man was a weak villain, thankfully the studio corrected that in this iteration of the Iron Man.
Whiplash, Ivan Vanko, stands out as a worthy adversary in both the physical and intellectual field with Tony Stark, his meek upbringing contrasts nicely with the flashy and arrogant Tony making the dichotomy of the characters simply wonderful. You get this raw and vengeful character in Ivan and a flashy slick character from Tony that create the perfect amount of friction to start a fire. Sam Rockwell also plays Justin Hammer to perfection, but to be honest I'm just a HUGE Rockwell fan, if you haven't seen Moon...do yourself a favor.
Fantastic MCU film that scratches a little deeper into the Avenger Initiative, will absolutely watch again.
Zac Efron does a great job as Ted Bundy, the womanizer, and charming sociopath, but for me...I don't really see the need for this film.
I mean Bundy's story is so documented already and there have already been so many documentaries on his trial and life that this film seems kind of unnecessary. I can see that they wanted to show his persuasive powers over his lover, but this just seems like a story about his most documented moments.
I would have honestly rather watch a film over his internal struggle rather than his external struggle with relationships.
Tony Stark, what can I say? Except, you freaking rock!
In the MCU's first film Tony really blasts off the screen in more ways than one. The only real fault that I have this film is the villain, not that Obadiah Stane (Iron Monger) isn't a worthy adversary and Jeff Bridges is always amazing. I just felt that the back story as to why it is that he's selling munitions to extremists isn't covered very well.
It just sort of happens...and why exactly did he want to kill Tony? I mean jealousy? Also, couldn't he have killed him in a million different ways? Hiring mercenaries seems...lazy.
Still, a fantastic movie and it's apart of a collection of films I'll watch over and over.
Hands down my favorite of all the MCU films. It might not be the strongest character, but the story is just so amazing.
I am a huge WWII fanatic so to see the setting and the story arc of the Rogers character is so uplifting. He is one of the MCU characters that is just so pure. He stands up for what he believes in and never backs down.
Now, I wouldn't say that Captain America is the best Marvel hero, but his personality, his belief system they all are so strong that it just makes you root for him. Hugo Weaving as Red Skull is mesmerizing, personally, I don't think there is a character that he can't do. Especially if that character is supposed to be menacing and villainous.
I will definitely re-watch this film over and over again.
A close look at the thrilling expedition to hunt down the infamous Bonnie and Clyde.
I have to say that there were parts of the movie that I felt dragged a bit, but when this movie hit high notes it hit them well. A specific moment that stands out to me is the moment when Hamer is talking to Clyde's father at the gas station. What a deep sequence, I loved the whole moment from start to finish, you really learn the driving force behind Hamer and his need to distinguish right and wrong from the world.
Costner and Harrelson both are fantastic in the film. This film is a great biopic and even though it may cross a few ethical lines, in my opinion, it still is a fantastic story. I enjoyed it and would watch it again.
Old Quaid just couldn't stop asking questions!
I absolutely love this film and to be honest the VFX in this movie still impress me, especially when you think about the capacity of the film. I love the story, love the concept, and it's oddly one of Schwarzenegger's best films, but I would surmise that to be because he's playing a man who doesn't understand what's going on...Schwarzenegger really nails that.
This movie is awesome! I'll definitely watch it again. Can't give it higher than what I did in score though because it has a few moments that are wacky. Also, I definitely think he died at Rekall.
Andy Brink Brinker and his band of misfits bring that pure 90's ska nostalgia to a full boil.
This movie brought back so many memories and really made me wish I could bust out my old inline skates and get out there. Sadly, after the nostalgia wears off I found myself actually paying attention to the film itself and it is not as amazing as I remembered it to be. I mean, it's a Disney Channel original movie so I couldn't expect too much, but I found myself laughing at some of the concepts.
You don't want to be paid to skate? I thought that was the end goal? To make living doing what you love! Telling young children that you should never be paid to do what you love is a great message, but why can't we have both? I mean there are a lot of people who make a living doing what they love!
Either way, I'll probably watch this movie again. Yes, the plot is crazy but it's still a reminder of a childhood I miss!
Sam Elliott is always great, but sadly he falls victims to a few weak plot points in this film.
I went into this movie excited, expecting this sort of over the top tale of a man who lived this extraordinary life...don't get me wrong his life was amazing, but I feel like they didn't really expand upon it as much as I wish they had.
I'm still rating the movie as decent because the plot and the acting were superb, it's just that the ideas weren't fleshed out enough. I'd probably watch it again if somebody wanted me to but won't seek it out.
This political comedy(?) was hot and cold for me. I had moments where I truly enjoyed it (mostly starring Brad Pitt) and moments where I actually kind of hated it (primarily starring Brad Pitt). It was so all over the place and a little disjointed for me, but overall it was an enjoyable film.
I don't know if this is a movie that I would recommend to a majority of my friends, but I would definitely recommend it to those who are politically inclined.
