Movie Ratings and Reviews

Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!

This was clearly a story with a religious and or spiritual agenda. Hmm, a big elephant named Horace (aka God) who happens to be a disembodied voice to a group of creatures who aren't to question him. The visuals looked quite nice if you can get past that this film is trying to brainwash your children into menial servitude to petty and archaic ideas. hahaha I'm only half joking in this review. Lighten up

The Crow
The Crow(1994)

The Crow is an amazing film. The rich world that was created is unparalleled for the budget. The only thing I can think of that might be superior visuals wise is Blade Runner.

The sound design and editing on this film are superb as well. The sequels not only lack in visual style, but the temporal quality of the edit and lack of good sound design.

The Crow is an example of brilliant filmmaking.


Brilliant. Disney at its best.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

this is the worst of all the Star Wars films, but still better than a lot of other movies. I have two words for you. DARTH MAUL.

Go suck on it.

Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump(1994)

great film. It made me sad, but it was an awesome adventure.

Ocean's Thirteen

Riddle: What costs 85 million, where most of that budget goes to the stars salaries, and they can all get together and act cool in front of the camera basking in the fact that they're all hollywood hot shits?

You guessed it.

The Little Mermaid

classic, maybe a little girly on the aesthetics side of things, but a great movie none the less

Back to the Future

great film! It looks aesthetically dated today, but the story is still magnificent

The Lion King

I really enjoy this movie. I think it has a lot of positive messages and looks great.

Edward Scissorhands

I never really watched this film until I was well into my 20's and just had gotten out of a long relationship. I understood it so well. They couldn't be together because they were from two different worlds. The Scissorhands were like past emotional baggage that won't let you get close to another.

Jurassic Park

Spielberg is an amazing filmmaker. Jurassic Park was one of the greatest movie going experiences I've had in my life.

The Matrix Reloaded

one of the biggest disappointments in my film life. It was pretentious, and bloated. The 2nd and 3rd films should never have been made. The original Matrix is great.


Awesome movie! You can't go wrong with these classic disney features.

Knocked Up
Knocked Up(2007)

I didn't think I woudl like this movie at all. It was a real surprise. I should have known coming from a guy like Judd Apatow. He has a heart and great style.

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

Although not as good as Empire, I still love Jedi.

The 40 Year Old Virgin

I love this film. Well done! I was laughing so hard, and the story was also great.

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3(2007)

I liked this film better than Spiderman 2.

I, Robot
I, Robot(2004)

Alex Proyas is my favorite director. I enjoyed this film a lot, but it's not one of his better works. I think overal lit looked great and the scene pacing was signature Proyas.


I can't believe I'm saying this, but this film was way too macho for me. ARGHH!!! YEO!! ARGHH We are Spartans!!!

I kept thinking, "Jesus, this is Braveheart shot on a green screen backlot"

It was a pretty good movie. I liked that they were brave enough to show so sex scenes. Most films these days are way too wussy to do so.

Gone in 60 Seconds (Gone in Sixty Seconds)

I saw this on a jet to Vegas. For being a Bruckheimer back flick it wasn't too... wait, yeah it sucked

Live Free or Die Hard

The original was interesting. He wasn't james bond in that film. He was a cop that had a really bad day. This movie had the character in way too many extraordinary positions (and not in a good way).


cute, worth watching with the kids, but put them on timeout if they start singing that god damned smash mouth song


preachy and anti-climatic

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

junk food, and ego masturbation here. The first one was actually decent. I was surprised since it was related to Jerry Bruckheimer. This one delivers classic Bruckheimer crap in spades.

Did anyone notice how each of the stars were kind of doing their own personal movie and not working together? Depp seemed bored, and was probably thinking, "Oh for fuck's sake why did I sign those contracts binding me into this boring film universe?"

Pearl Harbor
Pearl Harbor(2001)

more Jerry Bruckheimer dumpage

It's strange how this film came out in 2001. It almost seems like part of a propaganda machine to get the weak minded comfortable with the idea of war.

Worse still, it wasted what felt like 5 hrs of my life.


great movie! So many thing went wrong when they were making this film. Spielberg took those shortcomings and made them into storytelling advantages.

Blades of Glory

there were some funny moments, but overall I wasted too much precious time waiting for any real story to evolve.

National Treasure

Silly Jerry Bruckheimer crap. If this stuff was food it would be junk food. It wouldn't even be a good kind of junk food - think sugar jelly drops you might buy at a truck stop and it gives you the shits 50 miles down the road.

I will admit, like gorging on the sugar jelly drops, there were moments of joy and fun. In the end I felt like I was dumber for having had watched National Treasure

Batman Begins

I like some of the things Nolan brings to the table. Do I like it for Batman? Hell no. It seems like an indie director trying to be big and hollywood. The only thing more annoying than that is a big hollywood director trying to act all hip, connected with the times, and indie. Those are two different fields of talent. Nolan doesn't seem like a very good visualist to me. His cityscapes are boring, and I don't like a lot of his shot setups. He knows how to communicate with actors VERY well. I applaud him for being an actors director, but to me, he lacks in the visual department. Yeah you can have a team of experts flesh out a decent vision, but if it's not all coming from a singular point of view, they won't click... and quite frankly, it doesn't.


This film was not bad. It was mildly entertaining. The after taste was very mediocre. I don't feel compelled to rewatch this film.

American Pie 2

lame, like AP really needed a sequel. I thought the original was entertaining and was the voice of that particular time period. This one was a sad attempt at marketing and trying to ride the wave of the original franchise.

Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 2(2004)

same formulaic hero story, great special effects, but not enough substance

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

I remember laughing so hard during this movie.

Ghostbusters (1984 Original)

This is a classic. It still holds a special place in my heart.
