Rating History

The Maze Runner
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Good thing there's going to be a sequel or it's a movie about nobody knows really what's happening. The action was formulaic, but the movie's pace was taut and creditable. Story-wise, it should never be compared with Lord of the Flies (that's an insult to Piggy!), and don't bother searching for character depth, there's none here. The moral dilemma within each glader and as a social group was not fully explored. It could have been great. 3 out 5 for Stilinski who carried the movie.

Noah
Noah (2014)

½

Not sure if a biblical movie or a prequel to Waterworld with giant mountain trolls. The best part of the movie is not the special effects but in watching the internal and interpersonal conflict arise between the characters. Too bad, its few and far between.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is the second movie wherein apes made me teary-eyed, the other was Disney's Tarzan. The technical aspect of this film is amazing. However, the story doesn't offer much beyond primate drama, hence my favorite Planet of the Apes movie is still Tim Burton's 2001 film.

Sword of the Stranger (Sutorenjia: Mukô hadan)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A good enough Rurouni Kenshin quick fix while waiting for the live action movies. The sword fights make up for the uncomplicated script.

Snowpiercer

The movie reminds me of those popular dystopian movies from the 70s. The film revolves around what's left of humanity, cramped in an eternally moving train in the midst of a world blanketed with snow. Although, I'm not dissatisfied with the ending, I wish the train was centuries old rather than just 18 years. But then if the story went that way, it might find itself to have too much in common with The Matrix trilogy. 3.5 out of 5.
