Lone Survivor
Lone Survivor (2014)
3 years ago via Flixster

DO NOT SEE THIS FILM. When a movie finishes and I walk out of a crowded movie theater I can hear the audience speaking about the movie or talking about where to eat afterwards or how badly they might have to pee. After seeing Lone Survivor it was deathly quiet and felt befittingly like a funeral procession. Unless for some reason you take joy from watching men fight for their lives under incredibly odds while at the same time sustaining critical and brutal injuries I would stay away from this film. It's just too painful to watch without anything to keep you afloat from drowning in the pool of sadness and brutality. Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down are far superior war movies that doesn't make you feel like you attended an actual funeral after watching them. Mark Wahlberg shouldn't have been the lead role as it was hard to shake the Boston out of him while he tried to play a Texan. Yes, there is incredible tragedy in all war movies, but there is no payoff for watching this movie. Instead of seeing this film watch the documentary instead and read about it via the internet. Yes, it's important we hear about true human stories but much of it concentrated on the torturous turns that it took for the men involved. With that said it's not true to say this is a bad movie. It's not. It's filmed in a way that is brutally realistic but trust me when I warn you and say... DO NOT SEE IT. You'll be happy you didn't.

Oblivion
Oblivion (2013)

The good news is that visually there are some beautiful scenes and the space technology blends seamlessly into a desolate earthscape. Although this imaginary rendering of Earth in the future feels and looks terrific, evidently it's true no one can hear you scream in space or else this script would have been put out of its misery before filming. The pacing of the movie is long and drawn out and I wanted to fall asleep several times throughout the film. Andrea Riseborough steals the show and it's a shame when the most emotion comes from the third wheel of a love triangle and not from either lover in the film. Even if you have a vehicle that can go 88 mph and give you your two hours of life back that you spent watching this it's best to avoid this hokey pokey mess of a sci fi film at all costs.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty

Sometimes a movie tries to do too much. Sadly, this film doesn't try hard enough to do enough to fill its many dull voids with scenes chock full of the "unbelievable". I wanted to like this movie, in fact I wanted to LOVE this movie and in many scenes I loved how seamlessly Walter's zoning out blended into life in a Scott Pilgrim vs the World type action sequence. Although Walter's own pedestrian lifestyle was documented adequately enough, the romance build up was almost non existent and disjointed and never felt real. And therefore the whole purpose of his adventure became muddled. If you recited each adventure that actually happened in the film you would think that a lot happened, but inevitably it becomes lost in a wholly forgettable film. I recommend you see it only if it's on cable re-runs and you are bored out of your skull.
