Whiplash
Whiplash(2014)

Hands down my favorite movie of the season.

Still Alice
Still Alice(2015)

Holy crap. Waterworks. Can we have THIS Kristen Stewart all the times?

The Imitation Game
½

I really would have enjoyed this if we'd ever get a peek at the heart of the story.

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Felt like a really expensive pilot.

Oblivion
Oblivion(2013)

Surprisingly high-concept sci-fi.

WALL-E
WALL-E(2008)
½

Great Movie! I loved it. Stick around for the 8-bit re-enactment of the entire film during the credits.

Persepolis
Persepolis(2007)
½

An excellent film with varying degrees of accessibility.

Diary of the Dead

Unfortunately this film failed to deliver on many different levels. Namely, it lacked zombies

Atonement
Atonement(2007)
½

Geez. It's not very often that I love a romance movie. Last night I attempted to see The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, but instead fell into Atonement, and boy am I glad.

While I've wanted to see this movie, I hadn't really made a commitment to see it in the theater, but two hours after the titles typed across the screen I'm proud to be able to say that I saw it on the big screen.

The story was excellent. Epic, large, and full of emotion the story is a solid two hours within itself, and the director makes no apologies for pacing and doesn't need to. From the moment of initial betrayal to the final act of atonement, this story is gripping but most importantly personal. For the three characters involved, it's a lifetime's worth of pain, suffering, and (Tada! The cliche!) atonement. The story was greatly enhanced by the editing in post and dreams of the characters, usually lacking in an epic love piece. What the period bring to the film, i.e. snootieness, is made up for in personal involvement.

Kiera is grating, but I come to expect that from her roles. Her performance is great as well as that of John Malkovich. And oh yeah, that dress was freakin' amazing.

This film was great, with constant returns to previous story lines from different perspectives, the story was engaging, the acting was superb and the all together product was phenomenal. It's too bad, but I'm nearly positive that his film will get snubbed at the Oscars. With an easily identifiable story, Academy Voters won't want to appear dumb, and in my opinion, will probably go with the more critically acclaimed There Will Be Blood. If you can run out and see this flic while it's still in theatres, I hope you take the opportunity. You'll really appreciate it, believe me.

Mozart and the Whale

I really enjoyed this simple romance. The cast was surprising and the story was simple, but elegant.

Juno
Juno(2007)
½

"¬?¬?That ain'¬?¬?t no etch-a-sketch. That√ʬ?'s one doodle that can'¬?¬?t be un-did, homeskillet."

Yes! Finally a movie I can recommend to my friends without any disclaimers!

I feel as if the season has been filled with trailers portraying either too much of the production√ʬ?¬?s plot or a mix of footage that isn√ʬ?¬?t the finished film at all. What has happened to the glory days of trailers? That√ʬ?¬?s another story.

Juno. Good. Simple. Fun. It√ʬ?¬?s a great story that anyone from film students to grandparents can appreciate, with a cinematic script, a great cast, and a feel of unassuming pride.

Beowulf
Beowulf(2007)
½

How does one become a warrior? All it takes is an arrangement of warriors, a pair of brass gahones, and the ability to rip apart your enemies while yelling your own name, ‚??I am Beowulf!‚??

Well, I hadn‚??t intended to see this flick, but I had a few hours last night before my 12 a.m. class (GAAAR) and so I stopped by the local Regal to see what was what. I‚??d been hoping to get my grubbies on a pair of August Rush tickets, please don‚??t ask, when I saw that Beowulf was out. I figured, ‚??what the hell? I really wanna see that Abrams trailer that everyone‚??s talking about.‚?? So Beowulf it was.

And wow. I‚??m kinda surprised.

With atonement, warriors, epic-ly naked battles with a spice of mead and nudity, how the hell could you go wrong during the holiday season. Sounds like every great family Christmas party I‚??ve been to in the past few years.

BTW, this isn‚??t the film to take your nympho-aunt or AA uncle to see this season, unless you‚??re looking to stir up a little trouble.

American Gangster

After a busy week of surprise family visits, 12 hour days of class, and the relentless torment of bills, there‚??s nothing like going to a theatre, sitting in the dark, and taking in a movie.

Or so I thought.

I‚??m gonna kick this off with a rather bold statement; I don‚??t really like mobster flicks. It‚??s true. While I can recognize the cinematic genius that is The Godfather, others, such as Scarface and The Departed leave me feeling let down and disappointed.

All I‚??ve been hearing since it‚??s release is praise and wonder for American Gangster, and I‚??ll admit, that trailer was f-ing amazing. I was ready to be swept up in the whole 1970s vice-affair. Here‚??s the rub: I found this movie to be amazingly indecisive, and about 20 to 30 minutes too long.

First things first, the cast. I remember thinking, ‚??how could this film go wrong with both Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington?‚?? How wrong I was. The team rarely see each other and are only brought together in the same shot after nearly two hours. Denzel dials in his performance. It doesn‚??t seem to me that this performance was any different than any of his others.

Crazy eyes: check
Loud yelling: check
Crazy eyes: Double and then triple check

Russell on the other hand delivered . With a nuanced performance, Crowe lead the Denzel and Crowefilm with an awesome character and had it been a story about Richie Roberts and his development of the Bureau of Narcotics, it would‚??ve been a damn good film.

Oh, and Cuba popped in at inopportune, and growingly annoying moments, just because he was there. Way to be Cuba‚?¶take care of that Oscar, ‚??cause it‚??s the only one you‚??re gonna have for quite a while if you keep on like this.

Other than that, the film was just too crowded with under-developed characters, concepts, and culture.

The extra characters, i.e. Russell Crowe‚??s partner, were used as un-emotional plot devices. Not to spoil, but at the end of the film, you‚??re lead to believe that Russell‚??s entire motivation for the whole film was a deceased partner, one whom Russell never talks or thinks about after said partner‚??s death. Cheese. Blocks and blocks of cheese were associated with this final tribute, rather than the gravity that sincerity would have allowed. Boo to that.

The time period (kudos to the art department, f-ing awesome set design) looked great, but lacked depth. Without the depth and immersion, I had a difficult time keeping up with the fact that it was a period piece.

The really inspiring, yet poorly developed articulation of The American Dream was the best thing this film had going. It was pretty one sided, finding favor in Frank Lucas‚?? dope dealings, and more could‚??ve been done with Richie‚??s story, but I assume Ridley‚??s saving that for the Director‚??s Cut DVD, given his recent infatuation with the medium.

But in the end, I‚??ve seen worse. It was somewhat entertaining. I wouldn‚??t go so far as to say it was Ridley‚??s Alexander, but I think he‚??s getting close to the edge. The film was impersonal, and weak in the knees about ‚??going there‚?? (there as in commitment to an idea, not violence.) Russell was great, Denzel was Denzel, and Cuba needs to get a better agent. Ce la vie.

L8r G8rs.

Run Lola Run
Run Lola Run(1999)
½

Awesome.

A film defined by it's simplicity and pacing, this film is fast and fun.

I was hooked from beginning to end, and I might just have to buy the sound track.

LOTS of Diffused lights...and it's a great look...even if the film quality is shit.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age

Sweeping and epic, this period piece is as good as the first. Strong willed, and well shot, I'm a sucker for Cate Blanchett and her ability to fill this role.

Requiem for a Dream

Simply Mind-blowing. One of my favorites.

Gone Baby Gone
½

A great first direction for Affleck, he overcomes some of his career-starting roles (i.e. Mallrats, Glory Daze) and directs a Bostonian masterpiece that far surpasses it's recent predecessors.

Gone Baby Gone is everything The Departed aspired to be in half the time, twice the pace, and double the emotional depth and character.

Casey Affleck really comes into his own. From his humble beginnings in Chasing Amy, to his new 31 year old role ("He's much older than he looks," claims his cohort Michelle Monaghan) and goes toe to toe with the likes of Ed Harris, Morgan Freeman and comes out with a new, deep personage.

This movie was great, I highly recommend it.

Kissing Jessica Stein
½

A fun, stereotypical romance flick, with a little bit of a cultural slant...imagine "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" with a Jewish twist.

30 Days of Night

An exciting, fast-paced vampire flick.

Highly stylized, but not exactly what I'd hoped for. Kinda Zombies meet Vamps.

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
½

Loved this film! Visually stunning and the story's simplistic. I highly recommend it.

Across the Universe
½

First off, this movie is not what you'd expect. It's not a straight forward story-telling experience, it's an exploration of the impressions of a volatile, iconic time period.

I see this as a visual representation of what people remember/see of the sixties.

The choice of the bohemian lifestyle, drugs, and the Beetles all lead to a representation...a recreated self-righteous representation of what the director remembers of her youth.

Visually stunning, this film doesn't attempt to present a completely coherent story, but rather is pleased with itself for representing one of the most iconic decades of the last century...a time before revolution bore a trademark.

Tideland
Tideland(2006)
½

Creepy and moving as hell. This is pretty much Alice meets the Hills Have Eyes. Scary, and yet completely innocent all at the same time.

Jeliza-Rose...what a most excellent name!

A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints

Great editing. Moving, but one casting call I'd change. Other than that Shia and Robert D. Jr. present a fully formed character. Great generational film with lots and lots of guts.

Eastern Promises
½

Good movie. I really loved Viggo's performance. Tight story and awesome characters. This is a great way to kick off the drama season. Focus Features pulls out another success.

Dragon Wars
Dragon Wars(2007)

"It's all the romance of Titanic, the high-octane adventure of The Matrix Reloaded, and the digital art of Transformers." But without that annoying quality.

Oh, man...sooooo bad. And yet, somewhere between the child molestation and nylon beards lies a D film that's all about destroying L.A. on the big screen.

3:10 to Yuma
3:10 to Yuma(2007)
½

Phew...Full review to come later but let me say that it's a great movie.

Death Sentence

I'm pretty sure that Kevin Bacon is the inventor of all the Universe's testosterone. Kevin Bacon MAKES this movie as good as it can be, but even he can't pick up the slack of the director and supporting actors. I'm very on the fence on this film and would need to see it again to make any other decisions.

Halloween
Halloween(2007)
½

Vast improvements. The focus is better now that it's been shift off the victims and onto Michael, although there were a few scenes that could have been cut and there was a drag at some points, it was a good flick.

Superbad
Superbad(2007)
½

I laughed my ass off. This movie was hilarious.

Stardust
Stardust(2007)

This was a fun farse. I loved how simple and whimsical this film was. Managing three to four stories at a time was simple and well done. Robert De Niro was the best out pirate ever.

Introducing the Dwights

I thought it was a pretty strong dramedy...fun and serious and totally Aussie.

The United States of Leland

I really liked this dark interpretation of the over-educated emotionally driven social exception. Ryan Gosling's amazing.

Hairspray
Hairspray(2007)

Great production design, great costumes, amazing cast; but somewhere it falls short.

I think it must be the original content...if you ask me, this has poor source material and that's what hangs up the entire production. Some of the songs were good, some weren't. It's two dimensional, and easily predictable, but Amanda Bynes was actually good. She didn't bother me at all.

Mulholland Drive
½

Awesome...the colors, visuals and overall ambiance is amazing!

Blue Velvet
Blue Velvet(1986)
½

Not as great as Mulholland, but still a mystery of suburban proportions.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Haven't read the book in a while, but I was really glad they cut out all the whining.

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon

Fun, witty, and scary, this movie covers all it's bases and makes for one great slasher flick. Highly recommended.

What the Bleep Do We Know!?

A really interesting view of the universe based on quantum mechanics and biochemical reactions.

Die Hard: With a Vengeance
½

Sammy is absolutely the only reason I'd watch this again, but it was still fun to finally see Johnny-boy in NY.

Die Hard 2
Die Hard 2(1990)

Fun. Unrealistic, but fun.

Sherrybaby
Sherrybaby(2006)
½

A lot better upon completion, but still a horribly depressing picture of the recovery process in america.

Lawrence of Arabia
½

Absolutely inspiring. This movie was great on so many levels. I loved it.

London
London(2006)
½

Some impressive acting, but unfortunately too little plot or substance to drive the movie.

QuinceaŮera
QuinceaŮera(2006)
½

Slow pacing, but a pretty good film besides.

The Beach
The Beach(2000)
½

A pretty good Boyle Film, but not all there yet.

Transformers
Transformers(2007)

This movie is the biggest pile of crap I've seen since Bedazzled. This is not worth the time to see it. But judging the reviews already, it's unfortunately going to be the next X3.

Trainspotting

It's pretty good, but not as amazing as I was lead to believe. Still entertaining and well shot.

Chinatown
Chinatown(1974)
½

A great noir with lots of twist and plenty of suspense. Polanski is in great form. Everything about this film is cinematic magic.

The Holiday
The Holiday(2006)
½

Not a heck of a lot, but I can always find something good about Kate Winslet

Ocean's Thirteen
½

A fun return to the rat-pack-esque series, but it's still just that, a rat-pack wanna-be.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Oh Fan4...how I loathe you...and yet, you were so much better than X-Men 3. Stay true to your roots...no one expects any better, but you are not any worse either.

Who Killed the Electric Car?
½

A really well presented documentary. I applaud the efforts of the crew to present an even-sided story, complete with both sides of the arguement.

The Fountain
The Fountain(2006)

This is what cinema is. Passion for the art and passion for the genre.

This movie is absolute visual poetry. The strength comes from the passion for life and communication of the general fear of mortality.

Feast
Feast(2006)

Bad monster flick, but I enjoyed it for the most part.

A League of Their Own
½

A great movie. One of my all time favorites. I can't really express on how many levels this movie inspires me and how important of a film it truly is.

Sweet Home Alabama

A fun movie, but not much else. Pretty much formula.

28 Weeks Later...

This movie is a great adition to the 28 franchise. It has it's ups and downs, and then I just find myself enjoying the give and take.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End

Simply amazing. This is the perfect end to the franchise and an amazing contribution to the fact that not all movie goers are retarded.

East of Eden
East of Eden(1955)

A great coming of age tale.

The Maltese Falcon

A great noir flic that is just amazing. Everyone should see this!

Y Tu Mama Tambien
½

A stunning film that makes me feel like I'm watching Cather in the Rye.

Grindhouse
Grindhouse(2007)
½

Planet Terror is amazing...Deathproof...not so much.

O homem que copiava
½

Another interesting look into the lives of the populace of Brazil.

The Pursuit of Happyness

Actually a rather enjoyable film.

Casino Royale
½

Still not a huge Bond Fan, but this was a great movie, with one of my favorite actors.

The Promise (Master of Crimson Armor) (Wu ji)

Visualy stunning with the story to back it up.

Cats: The Musical

I absolutely hate this movie. BLAHH!

Marie Antoinette
½

Could have been better, but wasn't all bad. This is a movie whose power is garnered from the silences that fill the script. Less talk = more play.

Casablanca
Casablanca(1942)

This is one of the most amazing movies of all times.

Turks Fruit (Turkish Delight) (The Sensualist) (Wild Intent)
½

A very good, and heartwarming film. My friend recommended it to me, and I was really happy with it. P.S. - it's directed by the same guy who did Starship Troopers.

The Departed
The Departed(2006)

WTF? This is seriously one of the most wank movies I've seen recently. I had more fun watching straight to DVD Hellraiser than I did with this! The story took forever and the editing sucked.

Half Nelson
Half Nelson(2006)

This is one of Ryan Gosling's best performances of all time.

An Inconvenient Truth
½

Great! This film is absolutely amazing. There are no words to describe the absolute terror that this future embodies.

Go
Go(1999)
½

This is actually quite a fun farce. Far more down to earth than Crash, and far more engaging.

The Yes Men
The Yes Men(2004)
½

I feel that it lacked the professionalism I've come to expect from documentaries. It seems very one sided, and not always as funny as they seem to think of themselves.

Blood Diamond
½

Amazing. This film is astounding.

Flags of Our Fathers
½

One of my favorite interpretations of heroes. This film doesn't really stand out for any other reason, but I am in full unison with it's message.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

Some of my favorite celluloid scenes.

CSA: The Confederate States of America
½

An intersting look at how the Civil War influenced American Policy and of course history.

Set-up like a documentary, this is a tongue-in-cheek look at American History in a way that you would never imagine.

Babel
Babel(2006)
½

This is far superior to Crash. It upsets me that people call it a crash-clone. This film is great in it's interspective depth and it's attention to character detail. I highly reccomend it. This movie is three great short stories.

A Dirty Shame

Wow, I was hoping for gold, and all I found was crap.

Smokin' Aces
Smokin' Aces(2007)
½

This is the kind of film that deserves a series of films. Continue this, maybe not sequentially, but continue it. This 'verse is ripe for the picking.

Nanook of the North

Interesting, both for it's cinematic and cultural history.

La Haine
La Haine(1996)
½

Kinda felt like French Clerks, except more interesting.

Jesus Camp
Jesus Camp(2006)
½

Amazingly balanced, and incredibly terrifying!

Night at the Museum

A fun movie with lots of heart. *sigh*

Rize
Rize(2005)

a Visually stunning documentary.

Waiting
Waiting(2005)

Only decent b/c of Ryan Renyolds

Pan's Labyrinth
½

A simply amazing film, it sucks you in and holds you under until the only option you have is to give yourself over to it's magic. Awesome!

The Devil Wears Prada
½

A funny movie with a great pace and lots of acting ability! A funny, funny movie.

A Scanner Darkly
½

Not as innovative as I thought, but a good movie none the less.

The Hours
The Hours(2002)
½

A great film. This is a masterful story with gripping actors and a beautiful rhythm.

Saw III
Saw III(2006)
½

A nice conclusion to the trilogy, and bloody to the bone.

Almost Famous
½

Absolutely vibrant, an immediate classic. I loved this film from beginning to end.

Shadow of the Vampire
½

Great movie! I absolutely loved it. It's dark, and very much everything you could want from a vampire film.

The Good Girl

Decent, but neither funny, nor terribly dramatic.

Shakespeare in Love

A very funny, and great romantic film. This movie is simple and inspiring.

The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys
½

Ok, I didn't feel that there was much in it that warranted the hype though.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch
½

Great, funny, and awesome music. This is a must see for fans of Rocky Horror or the modern rock opera.

Crash
Crash(2004)

An OK film, but seriously lacking in originality outside of style. I like the point made to avoid "black and white" but the film doesn't do anything I would consider this a "great" or even an Oscar Film. It's a decent film, highlighting a specific area of racial intolerance. The best performance by far is that of Sandra Bullock.

Pulse
Pulse(2006)

Decent, not scary, but decent.

American Dreamz

I so wanted to like this movie.

Kids in America
½

A great movie. Simply inspiring. This film, while not a great pop film, nor a great film alone, this is a movie that needs to be shown in schools everywhere.

The Rules of Attraction
½

Interesting, not nearly as good as I'd heard, but interesting none the less. Some really interesting camera things, but all in all, a rather bland film looking for some "artsy" credit.

Jing mo gaa ting (House of Fury)
½

Comic and Amusing. This is a great movie with some very funny moments.

Elizabeth
Elizabeth(1998)
½

Great! Voluptuous sets and costumes, this film is rich with human emotion and simply amazing.

Philadelphia
Philadelphia(1993)
½

Moving, inspirational, and very influential in my life. This is one of my favorite movies of all time.

Inside Man
Inside Man(2006)
½

Surprisingly good. I loved this movie. Spike Lee was able to make a seemingly commercial film, while keeping a good part of his social commentary sublte. A really good, surprising flic.

Eddie and the Cruisers

Fun, yet predictable. This movie has great music, even if a guessable plot.

Danny the Dog
½

Decent, but I wasn't entirely impressed.

Slither
Slither(2006)

Fun, not amazing, but fun

X-Men: The Last Stand

Simply the worst treatment of a franchise I have ever seen. Fox really knows how to take a good idea, throw it in the air, shoot it, stomp it into the ground, and then piss on it. More to come later...

Reefer Madness
½

An absolutely amazing farce.

Mean Girls
Mean Girls(2004)
½

OK, now I'm addicted.

The Last Kiss

I believe this is a truely defining movie; essential to our generation.

Step Up
Step Up(2006)

Horrible...the worst movie since Purple Rain.

Cube Zero
Cube Zero(2004)

I would consider this possibly superior to the original, but then I woke up. Still, almost there.

Cube 2 - Hypercube
½

A little lacking, but I was never drawn in. The puzzle was far more interesting than terrifying...a sad down side to sequals.

Cube
Cube(1998)

Good, an original idea that carried through, and I'm guessing influenced Saw and Saw II. It's too bad it doesn't get the respect it deserves.

Grave of the Fireflies (Hotaru no haka)
½

By far, one of the most moving war stories/post apocolyptic stories I've ever seen.

Flightplan
Flightplan(2005)
½

A very enjoyable movie. Props to the design (I'd totally fly in a plane like that) and props to crazy Jodie Foster, possibly hotter than the sane one. All in all, a good solid film.

Just Friends
Just Friends(2005)

Not exactly Ryan Reynolds best performance, however, if you can make it through the first act, it gets rather amusing.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
½

A rather good redux of the original.

Atlantis - The Lost Empire
½

possibly the worst Disney movie ever.

Panic Room
Panic Room(2002)

I really enjoyed this thriller.

Waking Ned Devine
½

One of my favorite Irish Films. I like my comedy like my beer, tall, stout and dry.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Once again, a classic that kinda left me unimpressed.

The Birds
The Birds(1963)

One of my all time favorites. I love this beyond explination.

The Omen
The Omen(1976)
½

I really wasn't that impressed with this classic. Gregory Peck, one of my all time heroes, and it still doesn't do it for me. While people think modern movies are dribble, with too much dialouge, look at this and maybe you'll appreciate some pacing every once in a while.

Hidalgo
Hidalgo(2004)
½

Not all that.

Super Size Me
½

Great documentary...specially for beginners.

Bewitched
Bewitched(2005)

And yet I found it enjoyable.

Robots
Robots(2005)
½

Did robots make this movie...seems to fit the mold.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
½

This was the best of the prequels...that's not saying much.

Walk the Line
½

The only redeeming aspect of this film was Reese Witherspoon. I didn't really care for anything unless she was on screen.

Peter Pan
Peter Pan(1953)
½

Possibly my all time favorite Disney movie!

Brokeback Mountain
½

Excellent Cinematography.

Far From Heaven

Julianne Moore is amazing. I love anything she's in, but that's not the only good thing about this movie. Ahead of it's time, this should have been what Brokeback Mountain tried to be, if Hollywood were actually ready for it. This is a story that emcompasses more than just the physical attraction between to gay mena dnd instead looks at the lives their decisions affect. This should've been the film that was noticed before Brokeback, but was sadly shunted aside due to Hollywood bickering. Anyway, the style, both look and feel, are amazing. The lighting is astounding, and the emotions are raw. I recomend this movie to everyone!

Cronos
Cronos(1994)

An excellent film. I hesitate to call it a Vampire film, because that carries an emotionless, cold, and yet erotic stigma that has absolutely nothing to do with this film. It's powerful, moving and filled with life.

10 Things I Hate About You
½

One of the best adaptations I've ever seen. Absolutely screams of Shakespearian high school.

Pitch Black
Pitch Black(2000)
½

A great Prequil to a hopefully future trilogy.

Kingdom of Heaven
½

The director's cut is a thousand times better than the theatrical cut and well worth another look. I highly reccomend it.

The 10th Kingdom
½

I remember liking it, but I'd need to see it again.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
½

I loved this movie. It's style and storytelling is so 1950's while the characters couldn't be portrayed by better/stronger actors.

Aliens
Aliens(1986)

Just watched it...again. I love this movie!

Unbreakable
Unbreakable(2000)
½

Great comic-book style. Completely different from anything else I've seen, decent.

Joy Ride
Joy Ride(2001)
½

yes, three and a half stars. I like open road movies and this is one of the best. If you've ever picked up a CB and wondered what could happen, check out this film.

Exorcist: The Beginning

Felt too much like an action flic, but otherwise some surprising movement within the genre's good every once in a while.

The Cell
The Cell(2000)

Vibrant. Colorful. Lacking in acting, but it really doesn't deter from the film.

Can't Hardly Wait
½

Would be much more enjoyable if Jennifer Love Hewitt was more desireable.

13 Going on 30

Actually a great movie! I love Jennifer Garner, her acting chops finally show through as a credible Actress branching out from Action.

Deliverance
Deliverance(1972)
½

Didn't do anything for me.

Phone Booth
Phone Booth(2003)
½

It is well written and interesting, but I really didn't like Colin Farrell's performance. But I don't usually.

The Breed
The Breed(2001)
½

Interesting, but poorly delivered.

Van Helsing
Van Helsing(2004)

What were all the people who rated this smoking?

Conspiracy Theory

I love conspiracy movies...for a little while...not sure it lasts as long as this one though.

Chasing Amy
Chasing Amy(1997)

Astonishingly True.

Frailty
Frailty(2002)
½

Great, well thought out and delivered. Creepy. Very Creepy.

The Incredibles

I HATE THIS MOVIE! It's too damn happy! and it's dumb...d-u-m-b, dumb. And I hate it because it's nearly similar to Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which I really don't like...too much family shit.

King Kong
King Kong(2005)

One of the biggest dissappointments of the year...and I'm the one that really wanted to see it!

TRON
TRON(1982)
½

ok I guess...hard for me to focus on anything though.

The Goonies
The Goonies(1985)
½

I'm not as hyped as everyone else about this film...I didn't see it 'til I was 20 and it was no big.

Shaun of the Dead

Absolute hilarious, but I'm a huge dry-humor fan and I loved it. Zombies are comedy fodder.

Stigmata
Stigmata(1999)

Patricia Arquette is one of my favorites! She is amazing in this movie, though the overall plot is a bit lacking, the characters and their ability to act are amazing!

American History X
½

Edward Norton is a hause! He's great in this movie.

Hostel
Hostel(2006)
½

eh...making a sequel?

From Dusk Till Dawn

One of my new favorites!

Soul Survivors

Really, really bad, but disappointingly had a relatively interesting story...and Eliza Deushku was a Lesbian...it was hott! j/k

Superstar
Superstar(1999)

I really like Molly Shannon and Mary Katherine Gallagher, but it's just not that good.
