½

A decent little flick with some good laughs.

½

While it didn't reach the heights of This Is The End for me its still far funny the most comedies these days.

½

A very well made and tense drama.

47 Ronin
47 Ronin(2013)

A poorly executed fantasy epic.

Warrior King 2 (The Protector 2)

A terrible sequel that destroys everything good about the original. The worst Tony Jaa film to date.

An incredibly well directed and acted period piece.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty

For a film directed by Ben Stiller its lacking the whacky fun it should have.

½

Its far from the worst remake i've seen but it doesn't pack enough punch.

MAN OF STEEL wasn't as good as it should of been.

Rush
Rush(2013)

A sometimes goofy but well made drama.

Kick-Ass 2
Kick-Ass 2(2013)
½

An unnecessary sequel that never reaches the level of the first. Moretz and Carrey are the best part.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

An excellent sequel and one of the funniest movies of 2013

American Hustle

An excellent film thats hilarious and powerful with great performances.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

I like it about as much as the first, as a huge fan of the book i didn't like some of the stuff jackson added but overall it was a fun second chapter with some thrilling action.

Insidious: Chapter 2

A disappointing and poorly scripted sequel. It has some cool ideas that connect it to the first but the entire thing feels rushed. I'd say its my least favorite of Wans films.

R.I.P.D.
R.I.P.D.(2013)
½

Easily one of the worst films of 2013.

Before Midnight

Linklater has made what might be the greatest romantic trilogy of all time.

Before Sunset
½

An excellent sequel.

Before Sunrise

One of the best romance movies of the past 30 years.

Frances Ha
Frances Ha(2013)

Theres a lot of charm.

Apollo 18
Apollo 18(2011)

Its boring and lacks anything to make it worth while.

Halloween: Resurrection
½

Reality television web show in the Myers house? probably my least favorite in the series.

Halloween
Halloween(2007)

A movie that wants to be so much more, its got a good concept and a great way to remake the original but it fails at pulling it off. Where the original is focused and greatly paced this re-envisioning rushes and tries to use gore to shock and its ultimately ineffective. I'm huge a Halloween fan and this was a great disappointment.

H2: Halloween II

In many ways I like it better then the first but Zombie can't seem to find the right mix to make a decent Halloween film, its once again full of potential thats held back by sup par directing.

The Way Way Back
½

A very well written and acted coming of age comedy.

Prince Avalanche

I really enjoyed Prince Avalanche, its low key and heart felt.

Getaway
Getaway(2013)

Fast paced yet boring.

Prisoners
Prisoners(2013)

A well made thriller with great performances throughout.

While its not one of the better pixar films it has a heart and works great as a prequel to the first.

After Earth
After Earth(2013)
½

A really boring uneventful dull time.

Captain Phillips

A solid thriller with good performances.

The Bling Ring

Its a well made little film I just didn't like how it portrayed some of the events making it far more Hollywood then real.

Thor
Thor(2011)

A great super hero flick.

Thor: The Dark World
½

A good sequel that adds to the marvel universe.

Riddick
Riddick(2013)

Its a fun time for fans of the series.

Escape Plan
Escape Plan(2013)

I enjoyed Escape Plan its the first true come back for Arnold in my opinion and its got that fun 80s feel.

Red 2
Red 2(2013)
½

Its a no brain popcorn flick and in that sense theres some fun to be had.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

It never reaches the funny or danger level of the previous films but as a borat like exercise Bad Grandpa is a lot of fun.

The Internship
½

Its not hilarious but theres a heart and its fun to see what it might be like to work at google.

The Lone Ranger

A lazy, boring adaptation with dull performances. Its way too long.

White House Down

Its silly but never as funny as it should be and the action is a little to over the top. James Woods was fun to watch.

The Purge
The Purge(2013)
½

A dumb home invasion thriller with a great story line but poor execution.

2 Guns
2 Guns(2013)

Its fun at times and silly at others but overall its the chemistry between the leads that make it worth watching.

Now You See Me

For what it is its a fun leave your brain at the door popcorn flick with a predictable twist ending and hollow characters.

Grown Ups 2
Grown Ups 2(2013)

what you'd expect from the new Happy Madison production.

I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman)
½

Its hoaky and a bit dated like most films of the time but it still holds up as one of the more shocking in its genre, the bath tub scene is classic.

The People Under The Stairs
½

Its old school but its craven, not one of his best but not his worst.

Paranormal Activity 4
½

The worst in the series so far but it continues the story for anyone who cares.

A Tale of Two Sisters

It needs to be watched close to understand but its a good story and great film making.

Onibaba
Onibaba(1965)

A very well made unique film for its time.

Curse of Chucky
½

Its silly direct to dvd affair but its better then most of the sequels and a good way to end the series.

Joy Ride
Joy Ride(2001)

A well made thriller with good comedy and awesome chills.

Side Effects
Side Effects(2013)

A great thriller thats not what you expect.

Gravity
Gravity(2013)

The most intense 90 minutes ever on film. My favorite film of 2013.

World War Z
World War Z(2013)
½

Typical zombie affair with some silly plot points and illogical decisions.

The Iceman
The Iceman(2013)

Theres not a lot of meat on the bones but Michael Shannon gives a great performance and its shot extremely well.

Lovelace
Lovelace(2013)
½

Pretty dull in most respects and plays more like a tv movie but there are some good performances throughout.

The Frozen Ground

A decent thriller about an alaskan serial killer, the one victim that escaped him and the cop trying to catch him.

The Canyons
The Canyons(2013)

Lohans tits are the only reason to watch this piece of filth.

Elysium
Elysium(2013)
½

had a lot of issues with ELYSIUM, it was easily the best looking film of the year but there were to many plot holes and illogical decisions and the movie didn't really have a soul. I thought the flashbacks of max as a kid were too cheesy and hurt the movie a lot. It was all entertaining while watching it but afterwards very forgettable. I loved all the Halo and Mass Effect imagery, this film really solidified Blomkamp as the director whos meant to do the Halo movie I just hope it'll have stronger characters. I thought this was an enjoyable popcorn flick but not the sci fi classic I was hoping for.

The Wolverine
½

THE WOLVERINE was very mediocre. It was pretty boring throughout and lacked any cool action set pieces and the final act was pretty silly. Fans of the series will find some enjoyment in the story but in the end it all seemed very pointless. There is a cool post credit sequence that sets up future films, it was probably my favorite part. It would of been so amazing if the studio had let Darren Aronofsky direct his version but of course it was too ambitious and crazy, instead we got another average super hero flick and my least favorite of the super hero films this year. Hopefully "Days Of Future Past" can bring back the magic to a series thats getting stale.

42
42(2013)
½

The pacing is great and the mood is right, 42 is a good baseball film and an even better racial period piece.

Europa Report

A very well made sci fi thats a little been there done that but it does it well.

Pacific Rim
Pacific Rim(2013)
½

An extremely fun and loud summer blockbuster. Puts transformers to shame in the badass department.

Only God Forgives

Those who overlook this as trash simply just don't get it. Another Refn gem.

Total Recall
Total Recall(2012)
½

Dull characters and writing hold back a good looking film. The lens flare is annoying.

The Conjuring

A well crafted and genuinely terrifying haunted house flick.

Dead Man Down
½

Its characters arn't very accessible and the film tends to drag at times.

The Dictator
The Dictator(2012)

The worst effort from Larry Charles and Cohen.

Klovn: The Movie (Klown)

A hilarious film that plays like the danish version of curb your enthusiasm.

The Fox and the Hound

One of the greatest Disney cartoons, an excellent moral tale on growing up.

The Mask of Zorro

A great action film that will please fans of the series.

Pocahontas
Pocahontas(1995)

An extremely well made and fun animated classic from disney.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation

A poor attempt of a sequel that doesn't have the fun feel of the original.

Antiviral
Antiviral(2013)

A very strange film about celebrity obsession.

Olympus Has Fallen
½

Meatmouth to the rescue!

Stoker
Stoker(2013)
½

A very strange and hollow film with beautiful cinematography and great editing.

Maniac
Maniac(2013)
½

It feels like someone saw Drive and wanted to make a horror version of it.

The Legend of Zorro

Not what the first was but a worthy follow up for fans.

Admission
Admission(2013)

A run of the mill but fairly enjoyable romantic comedy.

This Is the End

A very fun and hilarious comedy that knows how to poke fun at its stars.

Hatchet III
Hatchet III(2013)
½

First off I got to say I hate that Victor Crowley sounds like a grizzley bear now. Hatchet 3 is a good third to round off this low budget horror trilogy. The acting this time around might be the worst in the series but theres plenty of gore throughout to give fans what they want and the film ends nicely for the story. The kills are not as creative as the previous installments but theres way more here. The first remains the best but this one feels like it belongs with the others but I think the performances would of been a little more solid if Adam Green had directed.

The Great Gatsby
½

In many ways a huge achievement in others a failed attempt.

The Hangover Part III

A lame attempt at a third it misses far more then it hits. Theres very few laughs.

The Call
The Call(2013)
½

A good thriller that borrows heavily from others but keeps the pace moving nicely. The ending is really silly however.

Pineapple Express

One of the best stoner comedies ever.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
½

Its plays it safe and never utilizes what its actors are capable of. Theres some funny parts but in the end it just another average comedy.

Jack the Giant Slayer
½

Not terrible but not what Singer is capable of.

Punisher: War Zone

Its feels more like the comics then the first but thats not a good thing for film.

Wreck-it Ralph

An excellent film for kids and video game fans.

The Paperboy
The Paperboy(2012)

A wannabe tarintino flick with poor editing and some weird shot choices but theres some good acting and John Cusacks nastiest role.

Taken 2
Taken 2(2012)
½

Pretty much a copy of the first but it moves at a good pace and gives fans what they want.

Warm Bodies
Warm Bodies(2013)

An enjoyable spin on romance and zombie films.

Bullet to the Head
½

Its pretty bad in a lot of ways but on its own terms it works and has some great fight scenes.

Snitch
Snitch(2013)
½

Surprisingly good and not what I was expecting. One of the better performances from The Rock.

Wrath of the Titans
½

On the same level as the first. The action is bigger and better but the dialogue and acting fall flat.

Clash of the Titans
½

A poor script and half assed performances hurt the film but the ending action sequence is great.

A Good Day To Die Hard

The worst in the series. The script is lame and the bad guys as well. Fans of the series will find much disappointment. Theres a few cool action sequences but its mostly over the top and poorly edited.

Jack Reacher
Jack Reacher(2012)

Its predictable and somewhat cliche but the action is great and Cruise has fun. Has one of the better car chases in recent memory.

Fast & Furious 6

The most ridiculous in the series, its full of cheesy one liners and over the top action just what fans of the series want. It never reaches the insane level of Fast Five but its far from the worst entry.

Promised Land

A well made drama about moral code and choice, its a little more straight forward then I like my Vant Saint pictures being but its a good film from a great film maker.

Cloud Atlas
Cloud Atlas(2012)

Cloud Atlas is a daring and rare film, it takes imagination to a new level and has some amazing imagery. Some of the make up is a tad silly but for a story so vast the film makers nailed it.

Mud
Mud(2013)
½

A simple but intelligent film with excellent performances and wonderful cinematography. McConaughey is at his best.

Ted
Ted(2012)

A funny film thats has a heart.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

If you're into fairy tales you might find some enjoyment and fun but its pretty much trash with a cherry on top.

Star Trek Into Darkness
½

An excellent follow up to the 2009 reboot, I'm excited to see where the series goes next.

Star Trek
Star Trek(2009)
½

An excellent reboot that will please fans and gain new fans and is in many ways better then the original.

The Collection
½

A good follow up to the first thats more action oriented.

The Collector

A stylistic and fun slasher film.

The Watch
The Watch(2012)
½

A bit of a lazy effort but I laughed out loud a few times and had a good time.

Dark Skies
Dark Skies(2013)
½

A great tone and good slow burn horror but unfortunately a poor script hurts what could of been a great alien horror flick.

Gangster Squad
½

Its well made but it doesn't have enough meat to fill the bones.

Parker
Parker(2013)
½

Another job for Statham but far from his best.

Broken City
Broken City(2013)
½

A very average run of the mill cop thriller.

Silent Hill: Revelation

Just about as bad as a video game film could get and theres never been a good one.

The Lords of Salem

A crafted horror film paying homage to works by Argento and other great directors of horror in the 70s. Its got issues especially with its script and most of the scares dont work but its by far Zombies most mature effort and best directed film. The soundtrack is one of the best in recent memory for a horror film.

Crawl
Crawl(2011)

A well made low budget slow burn horror thats needs more substance and character backstory. I'm excited to see what this director does next.

Texas Chainsaw
½

The worst Texas entry yet.

Movie 43
Movie 43(2013)
½

If you're into crude offensive gross out comedy then you'll have a blast.

The Last Stand
½

A disappointing outing from Jee-Woon but its not the worst action movie of the last 10 years. Arnold doesn't even seem like hes trying anymore.

Seul Contre Tous (I Stand Alone) (One Against All)

A decent into a different state of mind then your use to.

Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)
½

Iron Man 3 is a good round off for the trilogy like the first two its full of awesome things but also full of to much silliness throughout that takes it down a notch. Once again the villains are some of the weakest parts of the film something Marvel needs to work on in there films. Fans of the series will either have a great time or be disappointed in the changes from source material.

Mama
Mama(2013)
½

Nothing about the film scared me and I felt it was trying to hard at times to feel original. The script is pretty bad throughout and I felt there was a lot more they could of done with the character Mama. Those looking for a mindless creature feature might have a decent time but those looking for something deeper will be disappointed.

Pain & Gain
Pain & Gain(2013)

Pain and Gain is what you'd expect from a Bay film but thanks to concentrating more on characters then crazy action set pieces its one of his more enjoyable films of the last 10 years.

To The Wonder
½

Another descent into the moods and emotions of life.

Robin Hood
Robin Hood(2010)

Another historical epic from Scott that doesn't pack enough punch and feels like a wasted opportunity. Check the Directors Cut for a better version.

Evil Dead
Evil Dead(2013)

One of the better horror remakes of the last ten years. Its missing the charm and fun of the original trilogy but has some really good gore gags. Its probably my least favorite in the series but I'm excited to see where they take it from here.

The Place Beyond The Pines

An amazing drama about life, its struggles and what connects generations through family bloodline.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

One of the best high school dramas ever and certainly the most relevant to the current generation.

Spring Breakers

Its like having your mind raped by Britney Spears and Skrillex on acid watching a girls gone wild video in hell. One of the most abstract/craziest sensory overload movies i've ever seen. I think most people will hate it. I loved it and can't wait to see it again.

Oz the Great and Powerful

An interesting idea for a prequel to a classic. I like how it ties in with the original but it lacks enough magic to make it truly stand out.

Cool Hand Luke

A masterpiece about the human spirit.

The Impossible

An amazing film about human will , survival and the good inside us all.

Nitro Circus: The Movie 3D

Not as bad as the reviews say. If you enjoy the show you'll enjoy the movie.

Sinister
Sinister(2012)
½

Sub par acting from most of the supporting characters and I really didn't find it all that scary but the mood is great and the sound design deserves credit.

Snatch
Snatch(2001)

Plenty of style and great substance to the characters with a simple story. One of my favorite Brad Pitt roles.

Silver Linings Playbook

An excellent drama about how awkward personalities are sometimes the best match.

The Village
The Village(2004)
½

This movie gets a lot of hate but I honestly think its one of Shyamalans best with great performances and excellent direction.

The Campaign
The Campaign(2012)
½

An extremely fun and hilarious ride into the political world.

Lincoln
Lincoln(2012)

The best Spielberg film in years, DDL is amazing.

Seven Psychopaths

A fun ride thats full of blood and laughs.

Jackass: Number Two

The greatest jackass production ever made.

Skyfall
Skyfall(2012)

One of the best Bonds ever and easily the best shot.

The Amazing Spider-Man
½

A great reboot that doesn't quite nail everything it should but gets so much right.

Killing Them Softly

A master craft of dueling personalities and political standpoints, One of the best gangster movies in a long time.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

An excellent start to a new trilogy in Jacksons saga.

The Tall Man
The Tall Man(2012)
½

Not at all what I thought and thats a good thing.

Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer

Broomfields best work, a haunting and chilling piece.

Zero Dark Thirty

An excellent thriller about the biggest man hunt in history.

Shooter
Shooter(2007)

Its cliche and over the top but the action is there and its not poorly made.

Act of Valor
Act of Valor(2012)

Terrible dialogue and poor performances from most but very well shot and good action makes it better then most run of the mill military films you'll find out there.

Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap
½

One of the best Hip Hop documentaries of all time.

Beavis and Butt-head Do America

Its not burst our loud funny but its relevant to the times and an excellent film to represent the series.

Marley
Marley(2012)

The perfect documentary to represent Bob Marleys legacy.

Land of the Dead

Its no 28 days later but in the Romero slew of flicks its not too bad.

A Night at the Roxbury
½

Its not overly hilarious but if your a fan of Ferrel or Kattan it works.

Superstar
Superstar(1999)
½

Sometimes its works but mostly its just dumb fun.

Stealing Harvard
½

Its not very funny but it has a few laughs and if you're a fan of Green then its worth a watch.

The Moth Diaries

Very well shot, terribly paced, horribly executed.

Meeting Evil
Meeting Evil(2012)

This was a terrible film, one of the worst of 2012.

Halloween - The Curse of Michael Myers (Halloween 6)
½

My least favorite featuring myers, but hey Paul Rudds in it.

Crazy on the Outside
½

Its a stale concept and script but its not the worst film i've seen like it.

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers

It ignores the ending that made the last entry slightly fun and features one of the worst cliffhangers in horror history.

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
½

As a Halloween flick its works but its no Carpenter.

Halloween II
Halloween II(1981)
½

Its best if watched back to back with the first but its not on the same level. The hospital scenes are creepy but this features the worst MIchael Myers of the bunch, hes short and not intimidating

Beasts of the Southern Wild

An excellent modern coming of age fairy tale.

The Babymakers
½

There's a few laughs to be had.

Jeff Who Lives at Home

A funny and sweet comedy from the always great Duplass crew.

Prometheus
Prometheus(2012)

Epic, Visually Stunning, Mysterious and Fun. Prometheus is the best Sci Fi since Inception and the best movie so far of 2012.

Django Unchained
½

It may be his worst when its comes to craft but on the entertainment scale it might be his best, Quentin Tarantinos Django Unchained is just that, pure entertainment.

The Deer Hunter

I had tears in my eyes throughout, one of the most emotional war movies ever made, it doesn't focus on the war its about the before and after.

Men in Black III
½

Though not as groundbreaking as the first its superior to the 2nd and adds to the series in a positive way.

That's My Boy
½

A bad attempt at rated R humor.

Hesher
Hesher(2011)
½

An excellent modern fairy tale about getting over the past and living life to its fullest.

De rouille et d'os (Rust and Bone)
½

An effective drama that hits the perfect amount of real life tragedy with joy.

This is 40
This is 40(2012)

I laughed nonstop for a good chunk of the film, it slows down near the end and gets a little heavy. Not all the jokes hit when there suppose to but overall its a great time for Apatow fans.

Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day
½

For fans its an enjoyable cap on the series even though I don't think its quite over yet.

London
London(2006)
½

It nails certain aspects of drug use and relationships that are rarely reached in other films. Its not nearly as bad as the reviews would have you think, highly under rated.

V/H/S
V/H/S(2012)

Some of the bits work some of them don't quite pack a punch but its a fun ride and its def worth a watch for fans of horror.

Hancock
Hancock(2008)
½

Its a hit or miss super hero film that tries to be deep but ends up coming across as silly most of the time.

Balls of Fury

An ultimately unfunny film that could of been so much more.

The Switch
The Switch(2010)

Starts a bit rough but turns into one of the better romantic comedies in recent memory.

Cleaner
Cleaner(2008)

Its well made but it never packs the punch that a good thriller should.

Lawless
Lawless(2012)

It lacks character development and substance but the performances are great and the setting is just right.

The 6th Day
The 6th Day(2000)

Dumb fun that has some classic Arnold lines.

Greenberg
Greenberg(2010)
½

A well made character piece that hits real life comedy on the nose.

Knight & Day
Knight & Day(2010)
½

Its fun and fast paced but its too ridiculous and silly throughout to have a lasting effect.

The Sleeper
The Sleeper(2012)

A failed attempt at making a fun homage to 80's slasher horror.

300
300(2007)

Completely badass and action packed, its pure testosterone with great story telling.

Watchmen
Watchmen(2009)
½

Its long and preachy but its a great adaptation thats full of amazing visuals and action.

Red Scorpion
Red Scorpion(1989)
½

Another dumb action flick starring a brute for a hero. I may go as far to say its the best Lundgren film i've seen but thats not saying much.

Faster
Faster(2010)
½

Its well made but the film lacks any real punch.

Cyrus
Cyrus(2010)
½

An excellently paced and crafted comedy with real life issues about letting someone new into your world.

The Frighteners
½

A fun ghost filled time, the effects are a little dated and if you can get over its over the top cheesy nature then you will have a good time.

Jackass 3.5
Jackass 3.5(2011)

A great jackass film with some stunts that should have made the feature.

Jackass 3
Jackass 3(2010)

An excellent third chapter in the series and the most emotional.

Jackass 2.5
Jackass 2.5(2007)
½

A lot of stuff that was cut for good reason but if your a fan then its worth a look.

Jackass - The Movie

A landmark for comedy, the first real life hurt yourself physical comedy feature.

The Change-Up

I can understand not liking this its very below the bar comedy but you got to give it points for having no shame, I laughed out loud a handful of times.

Dinner for Schmucks

Its a hard film to like because its trying to make you annoyed most of the time.

Get Him to the Greek

A fun spiritual sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

MacGruber
MacGruber(2010)

Not for everyone but those who enjoy raunchy insane comedy will get a kick out of MacGruber I know I did.

Date Night
Date Night(2010)
½

A very fun film that has great cameos throughout.

I Love You Phillip Morris

A very well made comedy that hits dramatic subjects, easily Carreys best in some time.

Bad Teacher
Bad Teacher(2011)

I had fun watching it, it made me laugh when it wanted and kept me entertained throughout.

Hot Tub Time Machine

A clever and easy to like comedy.

The Hangover Part II
½

A decent sequel thats more action oriented then the first film. Anyone who enjoys the first should check it out.

30 Minutes or Less

I didn't love it but its got some laughs and moves at a good pace.

Your Highness
½

Stoner heaven, for everyone else I wouldn't recommend. Its easily one of the most quotable films in recent memory.

Hall Pass
Hall Pass(2011)

An enjoyable time with two overly cliche every guys that probably goes a more hollywood approach then what the real outcome would be.

The Sitter
The Sitter(2011)

A fun and crazy time thats not as bad as everyone seems to think it is.

The Promotion

It humanizes its characters and has some good laughs, the first half is a little light on humor but it picks up to a great second half.

My Super Ex-Girlfriend
½

Its a fun twist on the crazy ex girlfriend story line but its usually to silly to ever bring enough good to the table.

School for Scoundrels

A decent comedy but not one of Phillips better films.

Coming to America

One of the better Eddie Murphy films and the last truly great Landis flick.

Accepted
Accepted(2006)

A cliched but ultimately fun college flick.

The Three Stooges
½

It captures the energy of the series but it should have gone for something new instead of trying to duplicate the old.

The Expendables 2
½

Its more fun then the first but like the first it seems like there's a lot of wasted talent being thrown around.

An American Werewolf in London

An excellent film that explores the mental and physical parts of becoming a werewolf with the best werewolf transformation i've seen.

Ginger Snaps
Ginger Snaps(2001)

It gets under your skin when it wants and its well paced, a well made low budget horror.

Little Fockers
½

If your a fan of the series its a decent third. Its light on smart comedy and full of easy gags but its the characters that carry the fun.

Half Baked
Half Baked(1998)

If you like stoner comedies its one of the best, if not then go get high you looser.

Beer League
Beer League(2006)
½

Its fun in places but overall it misses the home run.

Quantum of Solace

Quantum of Solace feels more like Casino Royal part 2 then its own film. Its full of crazy action sequences and not enough story. It was a fun ride though and compared to many of the older films it rises above.

Loser
Loser(2000)
½

Its decent and has a heart but its a little to cliche and goody goody.

Videodrome(1983)

A masterwork of madness, Videodrome descends deep into our cultures obsession with violence and sex.

Scanners(1981)
½

A mind blowing experience.

One of the most fun B movies i've ever seen.

An excellent ghost story from the master Del Toro.

Donnie Darko
Donnie Darko(2001)

A classic thriller that only gets better with age.

The Cabin in the Woods

I had to see it twice before I got the awesome metaphorical message to horror fans but even on the "surface" Cabin should please hardcore horror fans and comedy junkies a like.

High School High
½

Its silly and dumb but its got that Zucker type humor that you can't help but chuckle at.

Crazy Joe
Crazy Joe(1974)

Crazy Joe is a fun grindhouse type gangster flick and Peter Boyle plays him like a badass.

Hard Times
Hard Times(1975)

An awesome lone character piece, Bronson is the man.

Colombiana
Colombiana(2011)

Saldana is great and its a fun little action flick, don't see why it got so much hate.

Final Destination
½

It works as a slasher and the concept is great, the acting is usually subpar but its well made and a good time if you want to see people die.

The Inbetweeners

A fun time that works best if your a fan of the show.

Bernie
Bernie(2012)

An excellent performance from Black and a very interesting true story that shows no matter how good someone is they can be pushed to a breaking point.

Friends With Benefits
½

One of the better romantic comedies in recent memory.

Battleship
Battleship(2012)
½

A sometimes fun but very dumb summer blockbuster.

The Room
The Room(2003)

This is the most pathetic, enjoyable piece of crap of all time. A masterpiece of bad.

Troll
Troll(1986)
½

Not as enjoyably bad as the second but it offers some cools gags and I can't help but love the music.

Underworld: Awakening

The acting isn't always on and the ending is slightly anti climatic trying to hard to set up for a sequel but if your a fan of the series it delivers what you want, blood and action. I don't recommend it for anyone but fans of Underworld.

Little Nikita

Well acted and executed even if its uneven and sometimes cheesy.

The Other Guys

An excellent parody of the buddy cop movie, Wahlberg and Ferrell are hilarious together.

Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy

In ten years it will be regarded as a comedy classic.

Happy Birthday to Me

Some creative kills for genre fans but its pretty sub par regardless.

Formula 51
Formula 51(2002)
½

A very flawed but fun british gangster flick.

Biggie and Tupac

An exciting doc that helps paint the picture of what might have happened to the famous rappers a little better.

Kurt & Courtney
½

If your a Cobain fan and enjoy the mystery surrounding his death its a very interesting documentary.

30 Days of Night

Its intense, bloody and creepy with excellent cinematography and make up throughout.

Sleepy Hollow

The most beheadings in any movie, the way Sleepy Hollow should be. One of Burtons best.

Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3(2010)

A perfect third for the series, it had me in tears at the end.

Toy Story 2
Toy Story 2(1999)
½

An excellent sequel that continues the themes from the first nicely.

Toy Story
Toy Story(1995)

My favorite movie of all time.

Step Brothers

A hilariously fun time.

The Cave
The Cave(2005)
½

Its shot well but its never scary and most of the dialogue is off, the creatures are kind of cool but its no decent.

Prom Night
Prom Night(2008)
½

And I thought my jokes were bad.

XXX
XXX(2002)
½

Its ridiculous, unrealistic and sometimes funny without trying to be, if you're into that type of film then you just might have a blast.

Predators
Predators(2010)

Its better then any other predator sequels of the past but it suffers from bad action and some poor backstory of characters.

Armored
Armored(2009)
½

There's some decent performances but at times I found myself yelling at certain characters for there stupidity.

Gladiator
Gladiator(2000)

One of the best period pieces ever filled with excellent performances and direction.

Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet(2006)

Filled with bad and not a lot of good, the dialogue and special effects are terrible.

When You're Strange
½

If your a fan of The Doors I don't see how you won't like it.

The Reeds
The Reeds(2010)
½

Its a film that doesn't quite know what it is, its executed decently but it gets lost in its own ambition when it should of kept things simple. Its not one of the worse After Dark films however.

Candyman
Candyman(1992)

A horror classic with one of my favorite horror scores. Its surprising it hasn't been remade yet I give it another 5 years minimum before we see one.

Rosewood Lane
½

Pretty lame with one of the lamest bad guys I can remember. I still don't get the ending.

Martyrs
Martyrs(2008)

One of the best horror films of the last decade, Martyrs is intense and effective with a story line that puts most horror movies to shame.

Pulse (Kairo)
½

An effectively creepy J horror with a cool story line but poor character development and motivations.

Rampage
Rampage(2009)

Uwe Bolls Masterpiece

Blubberella
Blubberella(2011)
½

Very bad but theres some laughs to be had, Brendan Fletcher seems to be having fun and hes fun to watch.

In The Name Of The King: Two Worlds

What you would expect when mixing Uwe Boll and Dolph Lundren

Lockout
Lockout(2012)
½

It feels like a video game at a non stop pace of face assaulting action, but its not that great.

Saw 3D
Saw 3D(2010)
½

The worst in the series, every hardcore saw fan already predicted the ending and they pulled it off really poorly. Does include some of the sickest kills in the series if your into that.

The Exorcist
The Exorcist(1973)

One of the best horror films of all time.

Fright Night
Fright Night(1985)
½

Its got its issues but its also got its strengths, Fright Night is an extremely fun vampire flick.

Prom Night
Prom Night(1980)

A fun slasher that borrows heavily from others, if your into the slasher genre check it out.

Bringing Out the Dead

One of the most experimental Scorsese films. Its dark and has a strong sense of humor throughout, including one of Ving Rhames funniest performances.

Piranha 3DD
Piranha 3DD(2012)

Poorly executed, if you can get over the terrible character motivations and dialogue theres some fun to be had with gags but to often they're catered for 3d. Every scene with Hasselhoff did make me laugh however.

Ringu (Ring)
Ringu (Ring)(1998)

The J horror that started the craze, Ringu is well executed and creepy in all the right places.

The X-Files: I Want to Believe (The X Files 2)
½

Fans might find some enjoyment but the film is a dud. Too many cheesy moments and not enough of the x files we known and love.

The X-Files - Fight the Future
½

Its a good film for fans of the series that borrows heavily from the show.

Saw V
Saw V(2008)
½

Its the worst in the series up to this point, the twist endings are becoming lame and the formula too predictable.

Saw VI
Saw VI(2009)
½

One of the better sequels in terms of the story and the relevance to current times.

Saw IV
Saw IV(2007)

I'll give it props for the heavy gore but its not the fun ride the first three were.

Saw III
Saw III(2006)
½

A good third to the series but now its just gonna get to ridiculous.

Saw II
Saw II(2005)
½

As far as horror sequels go it works and continues the mythology of the first nicely.

Saw
Saw(2004)

A classic torture film with one of the best twist endings in horror.

Looper
Looper(2012)
½

Looper is an excellent sci fi with wonderful performances from JGL and Willis. Its simple but complex and has one of the coolest time travel story lines in recent memory.

Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever(2002)
½

One the best horror comedies since Evil Dead 2.

Hostel Part II
½

A good follow up to the first that relies more on a comedic approach but also dips into new territory.

Hostel
Hostel(2006)

A disturbingly funny and horrific flick.

The Midnight Meat Train
½

The best Clive Barker adaptation next to the first Hellraiser.

Casino Royale

My favorite James Bond film, they finally brought back the humanization of the character with an amazing start to whats sure to be a great run of films.

Sleepaway Camp

The ending shot is legend.

The Loved Ones

An excellent horror flick thats like carrie meets hostel. Its fun and at times makes you squirm in your seat.

Argo
Argo(2012)
½

An excellent thriller filled with great performances, never boring or dull Argo is one of the best films of 2012.

Austin Powers in Goldmember

The austin powers saga is my favorite comedy trilogy, its on a personal level that I love these films, they may not be amazing but on a comedy level there some of my favorites

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

A classic comedy that only gets better with age.

Insidious
Insidious(2011)
½

At times its terrifying, others a little over the top, but it worked for the story line and I really enjoyed this low budget gem.

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

I know I might be rating this to high but this is one of my favorite comedies ever, I love it.

Get the Gringo
½

A fun film with a good performance from Gibson. I enjoyed it more then I thought I would and loved its dark sense of humor.

Red Dawn
Red Dawn(2012)
½

One of the worst movies i've seen this year, Red Dawn had me laughing then being bored then giving up.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

An excellent sequel with a great adventure that helps build a beloved character into a legend.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

One of the greatest adventure films ever made.

End of Watch
End of Watch(2012)
½

The acting is there but the movie feels uneven and pointless, it never digs deep or explores the themes that it swerves around. It feels very been there done that.

The Master
The Master(2012)

Some of the finest performances of the year and amazing cinematography in The Master from P.T. Anderson, some may not find a point to the film but its the type of film that begs to be examined more then once to unlock its many layered secrets.

Beyond The Black Rainbow
½

One of the most psychedelic movies ever made. I can't really recommend this to anyone but those who are into very strange and off putting types of films. Most will not enjoy this and feel it has no point, I got the point and it definitely has a plot but its very left open for interpretation. There's no real climax at the end it kinda just wraps everything up to fast but I have to say there is no other movie like it.

The Last Exorcism
½

A great found footage film and one of the better exorcism movies.

Dredd
Dredd(2012)
½

Dumb Fun thats not as dumb as you would think.

Jurassic Park

One of the greatest blockbusters of all time and my favorite film by Spielberg.

Silent House
Silent House(2012)

I really thought this was a bad movie, thats all I have to say about it.

The Dark Knight Rises

This is the batman film to completely divide fans and cause a stir simply because its to ambitious. Trying things batman films have never even thought of doing "The Dark Knight Rises" is the quintessential batman flick. Featuring very little batman and a whole lot of side plot to round off this amazing trilogy Nolan decided to get the most personal with this entry and make it the most painful and intense journey of the series. If you're invested into the series and characters it's the best of the bunch. I've heard a lot of friends complain that its full of plot holes and mistakes, I've seen it 5 times and there's not a single plot hole in it, sorry folks. The fact is the movie is so dense you have to see it a mere three times before you catch everything in it,. Its a batman film so bold its willing to suggest the actions so heavily fought for in the last two installments might have been a mistake and it questions the core hero about how he will face those actions and rise above them to move on with his life. With "The Dark Knight" we got a gritty post 9/11 moral tale for a film that had very intense moral dilemmas and core character decisions, with "Rises" we have a full and complete journey to the first two entries that challenges our protagonist to the max and makes him question his own logic. This isn't a film that's so much concerned with being its own story as its about completing and finishing what the entire saga has started. In that respect it may be the greatest third in a series ever. To fully enjoy "Rises" you have to love the first two in the trilogy. As a huge batman fan since I was four years old and got my first batman action figure to watching the animated series growing up and researching all the comics and back stories I can say this: THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is the deepest and most emotional batman film there has ever been. It takes all the right notes from the source material to make the hardcore fans like myself fill with chills. Its so good and daring it might end up being the least liked film of the series simply because the general audience can't handle some of the bold plot choices it makes, but this is what makes it the very best batman film ever made.

Scream 4
Scream 4(2011)

For the fans of the scream franchise Scream 4 is an enjoyable modern take on the classic series.

Freddy vs. Jason
½

Okay so its not a great movie but they got the mythology right and it was a fun ride featuring some of the best kills in either series. Its strictly for the fans.

The Guard
The Guard(2011)

The Guard is a great decent into the life of a corrupt police officer and what draws the lines between right and wrong.

Kill Bill: Volume 2

Vol.2 focuses more on character then the first which adds to the whole experience. As revenge films go they don't get any better.

Kill Bill: Volume 1

A master craft of style and substance.

W.
W.(2008)
½

A funny look at one of the most hated presidents ever.

Paranoid Park

A great little flick about youth and paranoia.

Last Days
Last Days(2005)

If your into the mystery surrounding Kobains death then Last Days is a very excellent examination of what his "last days" might of been like.

Milk
Milk(2008)

One of the best films of 2008, another classic from the master Gus Van Saint.

Good Will Hunting

Another Van Saint Masterpiece.

My Own Private Idaho

River Phoenix is amazing, one of Van Saints best pictures.

Drugstore Cowboy

One of Gus Van Saints best films and Matt Dillons finest performance.

Thursday
Thursday(1998)
½

Its fails to be anything special but Eckhart and Jane are good on screen together.

U-Turn
U-Turn(1997)

A very enjoyable trip through a small town in the desert. Sean Penn is fun to watch as a drifter whos running from collection agents and gets into more then he bargained for.

The Raid: Redemption

One of the most badass action films to come along in quite some time.

The Grey
The Grey(2012)

The film isnt about survival its about death and how different people deal with the same fate we all face.

Princess Mononoke (Mononoke-hime)

In my opinion its the greatest anime ever made.

Batman: Under the Red Hood
½

A great addition to the animated Batman universe. If your a hardcore bat fan check it out.

Tron Legacy
Tron Legacy(2010)

Some of the best shot action in any movie Tron Legacy is a Sci Fi fans movie, even if the story line is a little light on depth.

Shutter Island

A great thriller thats very well made and acted, featuring an eerie score and a creepy prison island setting. The story line is very run of the mill however, its not bad just predictable if your familiar with the genre.

The Bourne Ultimatum
½

Ultimatum is a great end to the trilogy and one of the most hard hitting action flicks ever.

Alexander
Alexander(2004)

(THE FINAL CUT) if you can manage to get past how funny everyone looks the final cut of Alexander is long but generally entertaining with some cool battle sequences throughout.

Bride of Chucky

A self aware horror film thats plenty of bad and very little good.

Permanent Midnight
½

I really enjoyed seeing Stiller play a drugged out mess.

Friday the 13th Part 3
½

Its set up to much for the 3D gimmick and its more predictable then the first two. Jason gets his iconic hockey mask in this one but besides that theres nothing very special about it, maybe a few jumps.

The Bourne Identity

One of the best spy movies out there.

The Bourne Supremacy
½

A great sequel thats ups the pace from the first.

Heaven & Earth

Its well made with great cinematography and a powerful score but the plot is a little thick and jumbled together.

Small Soldiers
½

Loved it as a kid and it holds up decently, its a lot of fun.

The Doors
The Doors(1991)

I really enjoyed The Doors even if its not the most accurate portrait of Morrison and crew.

The Burning
The Burning(1981)

One of the better Friday The 13th/Halloween rip offs of the 80s, cheesy fun.

Natural Born Killers
½

Its over the top and out of control, exactly what a satire about americas obsession with violence should be.

Joe Kidd
Joe Kidd(1972)

Another solid Eastwood western featuring Robert Duvall.

Risky Business

It feels like an 80s teenage dream fantasy, Cruise gives one of his best performances.

God Bless America
½

Its got a lot to say about our current status as a consuming country but it never really gets to the point.

Pale Rider
Pale Rider(1985)

This almost feels like a fourth unofficial entry in the Man With No Name series. The cinematography is gorgeous.

Two Mules for Sister Sara

As a western it works and is made for fans of the genre.

John Carpenter's Vampires
½

Enjoyable on a laughable level.

Night of the Creeps
½

Classic 80s cheesiness at its best

Extract
Extract(2009)

Its has a lot of jokes but most go unnoticed, its the type of film that needs to be seen more then once to appreciate but its no Office Space

They
They(2002)

If you've ever had night terrors this should be effective. Only a level of horror THEY works and is better then a lot films like it.

Wayne's World 2
½

A fun sequel thats almost a copy of the first.

Thelma & Louise

A fun adventure about being free even if its only for a moment.

The Blues Brothers

Quite possibly my favorite comedy/musical ever, if only for its hopeful vibe concerning crooks. This is the godfather SNL movie.

Seizure (Queen of Evil) (Tango macabre)
½

By far Stones least impressive effort.

Born on the Fourth of July

One of Stones best, Cruise is amazing.

21 Jump Street

The funniest film yet in 2012.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
½

Its great, the mood throughout is something many thrillers try but never succeed in capturing.

Elektra Luxx
Elektra Luxx(2011)

The film seems like its trying to hard without trying at all.

Seven (Se7en)

Easily one of the greatest thrillers of all time.

The Game
The Game(1997)
½

Its very well made even with a handful of plot holes throughout.

Fight Club
Fight Club(1999)

Fight Club is great entertainment directed by a master.

Panic Room
Panic Room(2002)

A well crafted thriller.

Zodiac
Zodiac(2007)
½

One of the best serial killer films ever, we feel what the characters feel in each given scene, great tension throughout.

The Social Network

One of the most relevant films to the current generation and how an empire was made and friendships broken.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
½

Fincher brings us into a fairy tale of reality where life is life no matter how your brought into it or leave it.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

A good sequel even if the ending is a little to Hollywood.

Wall Street
Wall Street(1987)
½

Great performance by Douglas and one of Stones best.

To Live and Die in L.A.

Man the soundtrack is so 80's, besides that its very well made and sometimes surprisingly violent.

Scarface
Scarface(1983)

In terms of character Scarface is truly a masterpiece.

Leprechaun 2
Leprechaun 2(1994)
½

More of the same, and that isn't good.

Leprechaun
Leprechaun(1993)

It is what it is, pretty bad.

Platoon
Platoon(1986)
½

Platoon to often gets named the greatest war movie, its not, but it is great.

Salvador
Salvador(1986)

Its long and all over the place but it works. James Woods gives a good performance as a photojournalist who has many vices.

THX 1138
THX 1138(1971)

THX 1138 is a landmark for sound design, production design and special effects.

Wayne's World
½

Shhhwinnngggggg, excelllent. One of my favorite silly comedies ever.

The Way
The Way(2011)
½

Better then you would think, theres a lot of walking and talking but theres a lot of emotion as well.

The Hand
The Hand(1981)

I laughed a lot during this, I seem to have a soft spot for these type of horrors that dip into comedy when not trying. Michael Caine is the man.

A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange feels very original and fresh, its a sadistic ride about youth, government and how far you can push the human spirit.

2001: A Space Odyssey

Sci-fi at its grandest scale. 2001 is a grand daddy science fiction adventure that inspired hundreds of films like it and its still one of the best.

The Shining
The Shining(1980)

One of the most epic horror films ever made and easily one of the best King adaptations even if its way off course.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

One of the greatest westerns ever.

For a Few Dollars More (Per Qualche Dollaro in Piů)
½

Its got that old school feel, ADR and all, the soundtrack is great and its got Clint. A great sequel.

A Fistful of Dollars (Per un Pugno di Dollari)

An excellent start to the best western trilogy ever.

Scream 3
Scream 3(2000)

A decent slasher that hinges on making fun of thirds and trilogies.

Scream 2
Scream 2(1997)
½

A great sequel thats more of the same but thats not a bad thing.

Scream
Scream(1996)

A Classic slasher for fans of classic slashers.

We Need to Talk About Kevin
½

A dark and disturbing film that delves into psychotic realms of depravity featuring great performances.

Inception
Inception(2010)

The movie relies more on exposition then other movies but other movies don't build the action to a point where your ready to fall out of your seat, well done Nolan.

The Prestige
The Prestige(2006)

One of my favorite films, a truly excellent crafted thriller thats so dense you have to watch it a handful of times before you get it all the pieces.

Insomnia
Insomnia(2002)

Another amazing thriller from Nolan that features one of Williams best performances.

Memento
Memento(2000)

A classic thriller that gets better every time you watch it.

Batman Begins

An excellent rebirth of Batman and the best origin tale thus far.

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

Of course I was wrong when I said it can't be any worse then the first.

Mortal Kombat

Cheesy and pretty bad but it has a hilariously strange watchability factor.

Max Payne
Max Payne(2008)
½

It follows the video-game better then most adaptations but fails to work as a movie on any level ending up being one of the worst video-game movies thus far.

Seed of Chucky
½

Someone needs to officially kill Chucky and his son.

Child's Play 3

The doll is killing people again, this time at a military school.

Child's Play
Child's Play(1988)

If you hate dolls Chucky might frighten you, if not you might laugh.

Hellraiser: Revelations

More unnecessary then it ever had to be.

Hellraiser: Hellworld

Videogames and horror movies don't mix.

Hellraiser: Hellseeker
½

I don't really remember it but I watched it.

Hellraiser - Inferno
½

The further you get into the series the less you see Pinhead.

Hellraiser - Bloodline

Pretty subpar and the story line tries hard but fails for most of it. For some reason the ending blew my mind though.

Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth

cheesy goodness with a side of liver.

Hellbound: Hellraiser II
½

Its not pretty but the last 20 minutes are pretty fun and some effects ridiculous.

Hellraiser
Hellraiser(1987)

Its a very effective horror movie with lots of disturbing images and sweat covered actors.

Wes Craven's New Nightmare
½

The best Nightmare sequel and one of the funner horrors of the 90s with a scream like spin.

Halloween H2O

I'd say this is my favorite next to the first. Its got that 90s slasher vibe and a great ending to the series.

Halloween III - Season of the Witch

Maybe if it wasn't part of the Halloween series it could be an alright B horror flick about a sinister plot to end the world but for fans of Myers this will be nothing of interest.

Halloween
Halloween(1978)

The dialogue is definitely dated but the atmosphere and soundtrack make this a classic slasher better then the rest

Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare

Not as bad as the remake but its not very good. Krueger may be at the top of his comical game here though.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

Its predictable and doesn't match the last on cool dreams and kills.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

A very cool concept for the series and some of the best dream sequences.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge
½

Its certainly not the worst sequel i've seen and its actually very funny without trying to be.

A Nightmare on Elm Street
½

Another run of the mill remake from the Bay crew and it may be the worst of the series.

A Nightmare on Elm Street
½

Its old school and the ending is silly but the dream sequences are great and the soundtrack is classic, it seems to scare me more now that i'm older for some reason.

Friday the 13th

Trying to capture the old school method to much while looking to new school. All these Bay productions have the same look to them and its lame. This isn't the worst of the series however.

Jason Goes to Hell - The Final Friday

For being so different from the others its surprisingly funnier then most and has one of the coolest last shots of the series.

Friday the 13th Part VIII - Jason Takes Manhattan
½

Jason rides a boat to Manhattan for an hour then kills a few people in Manhattan then dies is a better title.

Friday the 13th Part VII - The New Blood

Jason meets carrie and its not very scary.

Friday the 13th, Part VI - Jason Lives
½

The birth of the new school Jason, many fans of the series love this one. The script is very snappy compared to most in the series but its also super campy.

Friday the 13th, Part V - A New Beginning
½

This worst of the series for many reasons, thanks to the twist it feels like the Halloween 3: Season of the Witch of the series.

Friday the 13th - The Final Chapter

One of the better sequels and and has the series most violent kills.

Friday the 13th Part 2

One of the best in the series and the first time we get to see the legendary Jason Vorhees in action. As far as slashers go its better then average.

The Duellists

A very enjoyable drama about Duellists that feels more like a black comedy.

G.I. Jane
G.I. Jane(1997)
½

Great performance by Demi and Viggo and its shot well also. The ending shoot out may be one of the funniest ever without trying to be, terrible choice of zoom.

Friday the 13th
½

One of the godfather slasher films that spawned hundreds of films like it.

Silent Hill
Silent Hill(2006)
½

They got the look and feel dead on but the characters are just as hollow as in the games and it doesn't work like it does in those, there needs to be more substance.

K2
K2(1992)
½

Not the best mountain movie i've seen, not the worst.

Don't Go in the Woods

You probably heard this was a bad movie, it is, but i've seen worse.

Not Another Teen Movie
½

If you like spoofs its pretty good if not then don't bother.

Management
Management(2009)
½

I enjoyed Zahn a lot in this but its not very entertaining and very predictable.

The Stuff
The Stuff(1985)
½

A fun B movie horror comedy.

Goon
Goon(2012)

The film is kind of a mess but its not trying to be anything but a good time. I laughed a lot.

Legend
Legend(1985)
½

Its dated and pretty silly now but Tim Curry plays the best devil ever and some of the set design is incredible.

54
54(1998)

Low on plot development and character turns but has good performances and isn't as bad as some say.

Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark

Its never truly scary but its enjoyable if you like this type of film.

The Faculty
The Faculty(1998)
½

It feels a lot like Scream except with aliens. Mostly cheesy but at some points it can be very entertaining.

Blade Runner
Blade Runner(1982)

My preferred version is THE FINAL CUT. Blade Runner is a classic Sci Fi for the thinking man. One of Scotts best films.

Matchstick Men

Cage is great, the story is smooth and the performances are spot on. One of Scotts best in the last 10 years.

Double Dare
Double Dare(2005)

A good doc about what its like being Stunt Women. I have way more respect for stunt workers after seeing this.

Basic Instinct 2

If Sharon Stone wasn't so nice on the eyes I would have rated it worse. The plot is jumbled and doesn't even know what it is and a few scenes make you laugh when they don't mean to.

Safe House
Safe House(2012)

Not much new to the genre in this but its well made and fans of Denzel and Reynolds will enjoy there performances even if the story is predictable.

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3(2007)

A great example of how over ambition can destroy structure.

Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 2(2004)
½

The best in Raimis trilogy and one of the first comic book movies to deal with heavier issues then just a bad guy on the loose.

Spider-Man
Spider-Man(2002)
½

A good first entry in Raimis series.

Snow White and the Huntsman
½

Plenty to look at and the sound design is great but it lacks substance and character arcs.

Men in Black II

It didn't quite work for me and I found a lot of the characters annoying, Rip Torn does a kung fu wi fi kick to Lara Flynn Boyles face? But the star powers here with Smith and its got a few laughs.

Horrible Bosses
½

One of the best comedies of 2011.

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle

In my opinion its the best Stoner comedy of all time.

The Ten
The Ten(2007)

Its very David Wain/Stella type humor and if you like that it works.

Vacancy
Vacancy(2007)
½

It gets points for its realistic approach but the "bad guys" aren't very compelling and neither is the film.

Metropolis
Metropolis(2002)

A great anime with a visually spectacular ending.

1941
1941(1979)
½

The worst Spielberg movie i've seen, its got a few laughs but its not put together well and it feels like a bad John Landis movie. Spielberg gets some points for mocking himself though.

Contraband
Contraband(2012)

Its pretty run of the mill stuff here but it holds a nice pace and delivers some good tension at times.

Anonymous
Anonymous(2011)
½

A little bit confusing for the general audience but its without question one of Emmerichs better recent films.

Armageddon
Armageddon(1998)

Loud, cheesy and completely unrealistic, and its arguably Bays best film on an emotional level.

Alien
Alien(1979)

One of the greatest sci fi and creature features wrapped into one.

Dick
Dick(1999)

fun and sometimes funny, it awesome to see how much all these actors have grown over the years.

[Rec] 2
[Rec] 2(2010)
½

A little repetitive if you've seen the first but it expands on the ideas from the first nicely. The whole possession element in a zombie story was new to me and the ending tied together well.

In Time
In Time(2011)
½

Cool plot but theres never much suspense in any of the action, Timberlake is weak.

Attack the Block

Very well made, funny and some of the cooler looking aliens I've seen in a while.

Defendor
Defendor(2009)
½

Harrelson is great as a man who never grew up and thinks hes a super hero that must fight crime..

Reign Over Me
½

Its a lil rough at times but overall a well made drama that fits Adam Sandler nicely, Don Cheadle is good as ever and I like how the ending wasn't hollywood.

Marvel's The Avengers

The film trades plot and depth for pure adrenaline filled action and fun, as summer popcorn flicks go they don't get much better, leave your brain at the door and get ready to assemble.

Haywire
Haywire(2012)

I really enjoyed it, a well made action thriller with plenty of star power to hold it together, newcomer Gina Carano did great.

Adaptation
Adaptation(2002)

Its stands on its own but its almost a spiritual sequel to Being John Malkovich. Its creative, funny and just plain old good.

The Deaths of Ian Stone

shot well and has a cool concept but it steals from way to many movies that inspired it

The Descent
The Descent(2006)
½

One of the best horror films of the 2000s

Lake Dead
Lake Dead(2007)
½

can somebody say cliche, I did laugh a few times however but I'm sure it wasn't meant to be funny.

Bellflower
Bellflower(2011)

An interesting debut, the film feels very scattered and unsure of itself but it has a heart even if its a dark one. I'm interested in what comes next from Glodell.

The House of the Devil

A great homage to 80s horror cinema, the film takes its time building tension before getting to the goods but the overall story and craft make this low budget horror flick a treat.

The Innkeepers
½

There is not a whole lot of substance to the movie and some of the editing is a little shotty but the scares work when they should and it relies mostly on tension instead of over the top gore which is rare in horror today.

Jaws
Jaws(1975)

The best shark movie ever made and one of Spielbergs finest

Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Hellboy 2)

del Toros vision makes this sequel more inventive then the first entry and this time the story is deeper.

Hellboy
Hellboy(2004)
½

The film works because of Perlmans performance and del Toros imagination.

Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe
½

The movie never takes a moment to slow down and explore its surroundings but the relationship between Crusoe and Friday works.

Road to Perdition

One of the finest Graphic Novel adaptations ever.

American Psycho

Christian Bale delivers one of my favorite performances ever as Patrick Bateman.

Con Air
Con Air(1997)

Complete balls to the wall hilariousness even when its not trying to be, the amount of classic one liners is unmatched.

The Matrix
The Matrix(1999)

One of the greatest action films ever made with an amazing sci fi story line and incredible special effects.

Puncture
Puncture(2011)

interesting and enjoyable, I liked it a lot more then I thought I would.

Centurion
Centurion(2010)
½

Fassbender does good at keeping you engaged with the story and Neil Marshall did good putting it together. Its nothing amazing but its entertaining.

The Fountain
The Fountain(2006)

One of my favorite films ever.

American Reunion
½

If your a fan of the series its a great entry bringing all the old faces back with some great laughs, if you didn't like the others you won't find anything new here.

Dream a Little Dream

I'm not kidding when I say this is one of the worst movies I have ever seen, film makers need to watch and study this to know what not to do when making a movie.

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior

Dated, funny, assless chaps? But man every time I watch it I have a great time, the ending chase is classic and the bad guy is hilarious.

Broken Arrow
Broken Arrow(1996)
½

One of the most over the top fun to laugh at actions films ever

Drive
Drive(2011)

Style, awesome action and great character. This is a great movie and one of the best Directed in a long time.

Them
Them(2007)

Truly a great horror film.

The Dark Knight

Not only the best batman movie ever, its the deepest comic adaptation yet.

Paranormal Activity 3
½

Fans of the series will enjoy this entry a lot, Focusing more on scares and creep factor then previous installments while adding to the mythology of the series.

April Fool's Day
½

Compared to many 80s slashers this one is made well. Many hardcore horror fans will dislike its twist ending and there are many plot holes and contradictions throughout but overall it was fun and it wasn't torture to sit through like so many horror films are.

Crazy, Stupid, Love.

One of the years best, and better romantic comedies i've seen.

The Thing
The Thing(2011)

Though not nearly as gross or good as the original remake its a good prequel that does well at paying homage to Carpenters classic.

Fast Five
Fast Five(2011)
½

The best in the series but it still has its flaws

X-Men: First Class
½

A great set up to the series, though a little cheesy at times always fun.

Fright Night
Fright Night(2011)
½

Pretty average stuff, nothing new here. I'd recommend skipping it and watching the original instead.

13 Assassins
13 Assassins(2011)
½

My favorite Samurai movie ever made, and one of the years best films.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Probably my favorite film i've seen all summer, i went in with low expectations and came out very pleased. It did an excellent job of connecting with the original but at the same time adding enough new to make it special. The reltionship between Franco and his eye candy did not work at all but besides that and some hollow characters I found this to be one of the best films of the year.

Rogue
Rogue(2008)
½

The best of the killer croc/aligator movies

Let the Right One In

One of the best horror films in the past 20 years and my favorite vampire film ever.

The Reef
The Reef(2010)
½

Great tension, the best shark shots in any shark movie ever, yes even better then Jaws. The issues come with editing and some directorial choices but overall one of the better shark movies you can find next to the classic Jaws

Devil
Devil(2010)
½

Surprisingly fun horror flick that suffers from some bad acting in places and a terrible narration throughout.

Captain America: The First Avenger
½

I didn't enjoy it as much as Thor but it was still a fun ride with a few cheesy moments. Wait til after the credits for the trailer for The Avengers if your a fan.

The Fly
The Fly(1986)

Next to The Thing this is the best horror/transformation film ever.

Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen

To little action but when it happens its some of the sickest i've ever seen, I enjoyed the story aswell.

Last Action Hero

One of the most under rated fun movies ever.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Better then the second for sure, with some of the best 3D action and some good humor. Still far from a great film though.

Crank
Crank(2006)

A fresh, fun and original action flick with a video game feel.

Snowboard Academy
½

Can't really recommend this to many but I certainly enjoy it.

Transcendent Man

Amazing, everyone should see this!

Anaconda
Anaconda(1997)

Ill paced, bad dialogue and really cheesy, but overall one of the better and more fun creature features of the 90s

Independence Day

One of the best Alien invasion movies

District 9
District 9(2009)

A classic sci fi adventure and a great first feature by Neill Blomkamp.

Battle: Los Angeles

Could have been a lot better, theres a few good moments but theres no story

Skyline
Skyline(2010)

Dumb fun, liked it better then Battle LA

Problem Child 2

Better then the first, the vomit sequence on the carnival ride is classic.

Problem Child

I seem to be the only one who likes this movie?

Monsters
Monsters(2010)
½

For a first feature this is pretty cool. I wish there was more scenes with monsters though.

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

My second favorite of the films. A great ending to the story and includes some of the sickest space battles in film. The opening on Tatooine is great aswell as the ending in the death star.

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

This is my favorite Star Wars. Its more focused and crafted then Star Wars(1977), its dark and is one of the best sequels ever. The ending on cloud city is a highlight.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

The start or should I say "middle" of one the best Science Fiction stories ever created.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

Its probably my least favorite Star Wars but the Pod Race is awesome , the ending lightsaber battle with Darth Maul might be the sickest in the series and its better then your run of the mill Science Fiction film.

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

Contains the most sappy love scenes but the action is some of the best in any star wars film. The ending battle is must see.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

Out of the new Trilogy this is by far my favorite and the darkest star wars of them all.

The Tree of Life

Life captured on film, one of the most beautiful movies ever shot.

Dead Alive
Dead Alive(1993)

The goriest movie ever made.....EVER.
