Movie Ratings and Reviews

The Last Stand

Not as good as classic Arnold movies but a hell of a lot better than something like Jingle All the Way or End of Days. Shame on all of you for turning your back on your old pal Arnold and allowing this movie to bomb


The same tired cliches that are in every other recent horror movie.

Life of Pi
Life of Pi(2012)

I typically hate CGI animals in movies but it mostly worked well here. Surprisingly brutal PG family movie. I want to visit the glowing meerkat death island.


The boring lame action sequences had me rolling my eyes more than entertaining me. Watch Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol instead. Its the same type of movie but better in every way.


The trailers and tv spots dont give away what this amazing movie is really about. Go out and suuport quality R rated sci fi. May be the best movie of the year.

The Cabin in the Woods

This movie had the one of the greatest concepts in cinema history. Unfortunately the amazing twist comes to late in the movie and isnt given the screen time it deserved. If the entire movie dealt with what happened in the final act we'd have the greatest horror movie of all time. What could have been.


Promising violent beginning followed by boring sequences of people walking slowly down dark hallways pointing their gun at things. Couldve used a Rob Schnieder cameo.

Men in Black III

Men In Black 3 didnt suck! it was actually quite good. Sure you can easily find things to complain about but with no expectations MIB3 is a good time.

Real Steel
Real Steel(2011)

Real Steel the imax experience lived up to its name. Outstanding sound. The whole theater shook during the very well done robot fights. Michael Bay's overrated and disappointing Transformers trilogy's giant robot battles don't come close to the ones seen in Real Steel. Very fun movie.

Fright Night
Fright Night(2011)

Horror is a genre that has been pretty lame lately. We either get remakes or sequels mostly starring forgetteble young actors against boring hardly scary cliches. This is a remake but it does manage to be entertaining because of its above average cast. More surprising is the trailer for Ghost Rider 2 was awesome. Don't ruin my Marvel Nic Cage.


Not quite as good as the first Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, but I still am happy with it. The only thing that kept it from getting 5 stars is it didnt have a climactic battle worthy of a god of thunder. Chris Hemsworth did an amazing job as Thor and I cant wait to see him back in The Avengers. You're an old man and a fool if you dont see Thor.

Source Code
Source Code(2011)

The rare great sc-ifi movie that isnt a sequel or adaptation. Great story, likable characters, and a happy ending that made me smile. Better than Inception. Go see it!!

Resident Evil: Afterlife

Meh. Actually filmed in 3D so not a total loss.

Piranha 3-D
Piranha 3-D(2010)

75% on Rottentomatoes. Shame on you critics.

Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2(2010)

What a letdown. Lame story and not much action. Hopefully Marvel steps it up for their next few movies.

Clash of the Titans

This is a movie that actually needed to be remade. To bad It had some bad effects, awful fight choreography, a boring midsection, and too little action. Another missed opportunity.

Where the Wild Things Are

Horrible, depressing, pointless movie. Recommend it to someone you hate.


Weird. Better than expected.


A couple of slick looking destruction sequences bogged down by sappy emotional moments between characters you could care less about.

Alice in Wonderland

Boring. Neither funny nor exciting. Not a total loss, there was an amazing Tron Legacy trailer.

The Wolfman
The Wolfman(2010)

Nothing to get excited about.


Good cast. A few very funny moments. Not enough gore and zombie action.

The Final Destination

This series has run its course. There is still a good movie to be made if it was in more capable and creative hands, but that wont happen. The girl getting caught in the escalator was pretty cool, escalators look like they were built to kill.

A Perfect Getaway

Usually hate the slasher genre, but this was ok.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Being a huge fan of JJ Abrams new Star Trek film it was only logical that i check out some classic Trek. I enjoyed the original cast but I prefer the more charismatic new cast, look, and pacing of the new film. The only problem I can find with it is that its dated. I look forward to Khans inevitable return in the new alternate Trek timeline.


Decent performance by one of my favorite actors but horrible editing and lame direct to video looking action sequences.

The Book of Eli

Another good Denzel Washington movie.

Youth in Revolt

Boring. No reason to see this.


Meh. It was ok. It was good to see Sam Niel. Hopefully we'll get to see him attacked by dinosaurs one last time. My only gripe is with the ending. It didnt end. There was no final showdown, the characters just drove off into the sunset. Rent it.


Nothing about this movie made sense. But who cares. Its completely unique and had me entertained. Its dark gritty post apocalyptic style would have been more effective in live action. Solid rental.

500 Days of Summer

Im not a good critic of drama. Nothing more to say than that its a good movie.

Sherlock Holmes

Robert Downey Jr. was good as Holmes but the movie as a whole wasnt. The villain was incredibly lame and I dont have a clue how he was a threat to anybody let alone all of England. Not horrible just nothing engaging or exciting.

District 9
District 9(2009)

One of the very best alien movies of all time.


Predictable yet entertaining storyline. Amazing almost photo realistic special effects. The 3D is cool but needs more time to perfect. All in all it is one of the best movies of the year and now one of my favorite films.

Star Trek
Star Trek(2009)

Star Trek > Star Wars. You suck George Lucas.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

A non harry potter fan thinks this is an all around good movie.

The Hangover
The Hangover(2009)

Whoa, bra we got so wasted last night. Not funny.

Ninja Assassin

If you like ninja assassins dont see ninja assassin ...because it sucks.
