Riddick
Riddick(2013)
½

Feel like i've seen this same movie over and over before

Stoker
Stoker(2013)

Waste of time. Ending was pointless

Bubba Ho-Tep
Bubba Ho-Tep(2003)

I like Bruce Campbell, but this movie was horrible. Only reason I wasted my time is because I was on a flight and had nothing better to do.

The Internship

This was so silly I could only watch the first 40 minutes before turning it off.

Antiviral
Antiviral(2013)
½

I had to look up the summary to figure this one out. Bizarre but enjoyable.

Oblivion
Oblivion(2013)

This was an epic sci-fi adventure

Hitchcock
Hitchcock(2012)
½

Kinda boring if you are not a fan of his old movies

Upstream Color

Also a fan of Primer. This was a great work that kept me guessing. Had to read the recaps halfway through to understand but sometimes that's a good thing.

Django Unchained

The violence is over the top, but beneath the gore lies a very heartwarming tale of bravery.

Mama
Mama(2013)

Saw this on mother's day! Super freaky and entertaining.

Side Effects

Wow. I had no idea what I was getting into with this movie. Left me never wanting to take any anti-anxiety medication ever.

Jack Reacher
Jack Reacher(2012)

Pretty good! Interesting action/thriller not entirely predictable.

Warm Bodies
Warm Bodies(2013)

What a great movie. The best zombie romance ever.

Celeste and Jesse Forever

Really funny throughout. The ending left me hanging.

Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away

So cool! Makes me want to see Cirque Du Soleil when they come to town.

The Intouchables
½

Not many feel good comedies made these days!

Silver Linings Playbook
½

Fantastic performances all around.

Jurassic Park

Hold on to yer butts!

Evil Dead
Evil Dead(2013)

I was expecting something campy like the past ones. They had a few throwbacks, but this was a bit too realistic and gory. Reminded me of Hostel. The sound design was amazing, I didn't need to watch to know what was happening, which was most of the time! Was hoping for a Bruce Campbell cameo, no such luck.

Paranormal Activity 4
½

You're definitely going to want to be doing something else while you watch this one. Still entertaining and had plenty startling moments.

Zero Dark Thirty
½

Great from beginning to end. Maya (the redhead) kinda reminds me of Carrie Mathison from Homeland.

Cloud Atlas
Cloud Atlas(2012)
½

Took me a bit of research to figure out all the story lines. Worth it in the end.

Argo
Argo(2012)
½

Remarkable story! Great film, surprised it was based on real events.

Insidious
Insidious(2011)

Supernatural, psychologically startling with a great twist!

Panic Button
Panic Button(2011)

Boring! Saw about 20 min

Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie

Ridiculous where they go here for a laugh.

Wreckage
Wreckage(2010)
½

Mildly entertaining low budget wanna-be slasher flick

The Five-Year Engagement

Definitely an R rated comedy, some parts are not for the squeamish, but sometimes you need to go in deep to get the laughs roaring.

Burning Palms

Bizarre dark comedy

The Kids Are All Right

Surprised myself by getting sucked into this bizarre family tale.

Snow White and the Huntsman

This was a brilliant rehash of the old classic, although quite a bit darker than the original.

The Raven
The Raven(2012)
½

I was expecting a somewhat factual portrayal of Poe. Nothing groundbreaking here.

Haywire
Haywire(2012)

Mallory could have been in Charlie's Angels, which is good enough for me.

Ted
Ted(2012)

Hilarious! If you like MacFarlane's humor you be thoroughly entertained.

The Dark Knight Rises

Great way to end the series. I enjoyed the first two pictures slightly more. A few plot twists along the way kept things fresh.

Madhouse
Madhouse(1990)
½

Bizarre move! Totally reminds me of the 80s haha

Final Destination 5
½

These movies crack me up. Same plot but unpredictable deaths. The scene at the optometrist.. Need I say more?

Prometheus
Prometheus(2012)

Read about the underlining themes (if you don't catch on) after watching this excellent Alien prequel.

Chronicle
Chronicle(2012)

Exciting from beginning to end! Trouble at home turns into real-life disasters when these students discover their stunning powers.

S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale

Not as bad as I was expecting. Many interesting takes on the original and a must see for any Darko fan. However there was little direction and a sub optimal storyline.

Immortals
Immortals(2011)

Great sets and visuals

Real Steel
Real Steel(2011)

Pretty cool robot fights. Would have been better without all the drama from his kid.

The Grey(2012)

Disappointing ending but cool survival story

Colombiana
Colombiana(2011)
½

I fell asleep halfway through!

Contagion
Contagion(2011)

I washed my hands like 3 times after seeing this. I wish the ending was explained a bit better

Moneyball
Moneyball(2011)

Who knew baseball could be this interesting!

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

A bit far fetched at times, like when the chimp throws a 300 lb manhole cover like a frisbee or when the gorilla who jumps 40 feet, gets shot and still takes down a copter. Overall a sold flick though!

The Hangover Part II

Exact same as first, but still funny

Cyrus
Cyrus(2010)

Hardly a comedy, but not bad

Super 8

The Perfect Host

Arthur
Arthur(2011)

Not bad, there were some very funny scenes.

Super
Super(2011)

Akin to Kick ass. Would have been much better if the ending wasn't so violent and depressing.

Scream 4
Scream 4(2011)

Horrible movie, recycled plot. Seemed much more graphic than previous screams.

Sucker Punch

Creative comic book / video game style film. Doesn't really keep you guessing but still entertaining with eye popping visuals

Not bad unless you like happy endings and consistency.

Type geekness at it's best.

Skyline
Skyline(2010)
½

Sweet visuals, average movie. Kinda like independence day without the good actors.

Fist half was ok, rest was bogus

Knowing(2009)
