Movie Ratings and Reviews

Moana
Moana(2016)
½

Much like Frozen, Moana is enjoyable but grossly overrated.

Star Trek Beyond
½

To all the nerds who internet-raged over the first trailer: Justin Lin nailed it.

Suicide Squad

Editing/pacing issues are painfully obvious and the action is nothing special. That said, I still had a blast.

Captain America: Civil War

Just when you thought they were running out of steam, Marvel manages to Make (Captain) America Great Again.

Hardcore Henry
½

Quite possibly the greatest GoPro commercial ever.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Lacks the moviemaking polish that Christopher Nolan spoiled us with in the last three Batman movies, but there's plenty of entertainment and badassery here to put BvS above the initial negative reception.

Deadpool
Deadpool(2016)

It's a great time to be alive.

The Hateful Eight
½

Not quite Tarantino's best, but his filmmaking brilliance still shines.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

You can rest easy, nerds. J.J. has brilliantly restored balance to the Force.

The Gallows
The Gallows(2015)

Holy mother of shit, this is pretty fucking awful. As if the found footage bar couldn't be set any lower.

Jurassic World

"That first park was legit..."

And so is the second one!

Mad Max: Fury Road

Grabs you by the cojones and doesn't let go.

Foxcatcher
Foxcatcher(2014)

The Oscars are calling and Steve Carell is answering.

Frozen
Frozen(2013)
½

Undoubtedly enjoyable, even if it is just an overhyped, winterized version of Tangled.

The Interview
½

A whole lot of dumb, yet a whole lot of fun.

Annabelle
Annabelle(2014)

Not bad, but does very little to CONJURE up some originality.

Tusk
Tusk(2014)

Kevin Smith has destroyed his comfort zone. As well as my chances of ever sleeping again.

Let's Be Cops

Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr are essentially playing their New Girl counterparts. And that's definitely not a bad thing.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
½

Far from perfect, but a lot more fun than I was expecting. If it wasn't for frequent Michael Bay tropes and Megan Fox's dreadful acting, this could've been more Bebop & Rocksteady than Tokka & Rahzar.

The Kings of Summer

More people need to be aware of this movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Bring on the sequel. My body is ready.

Neighbors
Neighbors(2014)
½

The bar for summer comedies has been set.

Crazy, Stupid, Love.

If you're in the mood for a solid RomCom, forget about Friends With Benefits and see this instead.

Drinking Buddies
½

A predictably bland plot makes this brew a bit skunky.

The LEGO Movie

An endlessly exciting love letter to fans of LEGO both young and old.

Prisoners
Prisoners(2013)

A roller coaster of tension that pulls you in and doesn't let go.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
½

All kinds of wrong and I don't wanna be right.

Carrie
Carrie(2013)

A bloody good time.

The World's End

Hands-down the best movie I've seen all summer. Hail to the (Gary) King!

Jobs
Jobs(2013)
½

The performances deliver (Yes, including Ashton's), but the rest of the movie, while better than expected, can't quite keep up.

Coffee Town
Coffee Town(2013)

A solid first effort from CollegeHumor.

Spring Breakers
½

Spring Breakers is full of things I despise (spoiled whores, douchebag rappers, Britney Spears' music), yet shockingly, there's some solid filmmaking here that I can definitely appreciate.

Grown Ups 2
Grown Ups 2(2013)

Nobody asked for this sequel, and for good reason.

This Is the End

Balls-to-the-wall comedy from beginning to end. HILARIOUS doesn't even begin to describe it.

Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)

A new director changes things up slightly, for better or worse.

The Hangover Part III
½

Tied up the trilogy nicely, though it could have used more laughs.

The Place Beyond The Pines
½

Frequently shifts gears into something that you wouldn't expect, for better or worse. Still good overall, but the trailers and commercials are borderline bait-and-switch.

Oz the Great and Powerful

Zach Braff plays a flying monkey and Bruce Campbell plays one of the Wicked Witch's guards.

Enough said.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I'm a sucker for a good underdog story and Perks of Being a Wallflower wholeheartedly delivers.

Seven Psychopaths

Now THIS is my kind of dark comedy.

John Dies at the End
½

Starts off as a shockingly solid adaptation of the book. Once you get halfway though, you'll find that too much fat has been trimmed.

Also, drugs...

Identity Thief

Identity Thief could've kicked it up a notch on the LPM (laughs per minute) meter, but what's there is still quite good.

Sleepwalk With Me
½

Excellent film adaption of an also excellent book. It may be missing a few notable scenes (the hilarious bear encounter for example), but fans of Birbiglia's comedy owe it to themselves to watch this.

Les Misérables
½

I could've done without the singing of casual dialogue (felt like overkill, even for a musical), but the all around stellar performances had me hooked. Give Anne Hathaway an Oscar NOW.

Django Unchained

To quote Sam Jackson from The Other Guys: Did somebody call 9-1-holy shit?!

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
½

An original concept (for a romcom at least) slightly mared by typical execution and an uneven second half.

This is 40
This is 40(2012)

Suffers from the typical Judd Apatow pacing and length problems, but at least the laughs are plenty good.

Lincoln
Lincoln(2012)

I expect this one to take over the Oscars.

Ruby Sparks
Ruby Sparks(2012)

The concept may not be entirely original (Stranger Than Fiction explored similar territory a few years ago), but the execution is so fresh, you'll fall in love and won't want to change a damn thing.

Heavy Metal
Heavy Metal(1981)
½

The plot is all over the place. The animation style (much like Pink Floyd's The Wall) is completely batshit crazy. Not to mention the entire film is slathered with gratuitous sex and violence.

I loved every god damn minute of it.

Silver Linings Playbook
½

Easily my sleeper hit of 2012. Aside from the predictable ending, Silver Linings Playbook is dark and edgy (yet comical and uplifting) enough to set it apart from a typical rom-com.

Wreck-it Ralph

Wreck-it Ralph is essentially Roger Rabbit/Toy Story for video games with all the charm and heart I've grown to expect from any great Disney movie. Couple that with classic arcade nostalgia and you've got a winner in my book.

The Illusionist (L'illusionniste)
½

While not nearly as odd as The Triplets of Belleville, The Illusionist is full of personality and charm with some of the most beautiful animation I've ever seen. Watching it on Blu-ray is an absolute must.

Frankenweenie

Frankenweenie isn't just a brilliant homage to classic monster movies, it's Burton's finest film in years.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1
½

The story and dialogue have aged a bit, but the Dark Knight Returns is as every bit as entertaining as one would expect from an animated Batman film. Can't wait for part 2!

Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey

Excellent. A must watch if you're a Muppet/Sesame Street fan.

The Five-Year Engagement
½

A solid rom-com held back by poor pacing and a lackluster ending.

ParaNorman
ParaNorman(2012)
½

Consider the bar for stop-motion animation RAISED.

Battlefield Earth

Believe the hype. It really is THAT bad.

Black Dynamite

It'll give you ooooooo!

Total Recall
Total Recall(2012)

There's a good amount of fun to be had, but a lack of originality and some glaring omissions from the Arnold classic (no Mars, no mutants, no Quato, and no freakin' Johnny Cabs) hold this serviceable remake back from true Sci-fi greatness. Wait for the DVD/Blu-ray.

The Dark Knight Rises

For good reason, movie buffs and young film makers alike have coined the phrase "In Nolan We Trust." This thunderous and intelligent conclusion to the Dark Knight trilogy not only justifies said phrase but provides yet another pinnacle for comic book cinema.

Ted
Ted(2012)

Hilarious! Seth MacFarlane's transition from animation to live-action is nothing short of a flawless victory.

The Muppets
The Muppets(2011)
½

A little cheesy at times, but I still wore a giant smile from beginning to end.

Tower Heist
Tower Heist(2011)
½

An enjoyable, but flawed comedy/heist flick that doesn't know if it wants to be serious or comedic. Throw in a great, diverse cast that sadly wasn't taken full advantage of and you have a sold rental at best.

Puss in Boots
½

A Shrek spin-off that's actually better than Shrek. Yeah I went there.

Red State
Red State(2011)
½

Mr. Smith steps outside of his normal dick/fart joke boundaries and smacks you in the face with a compelling thriller.

Moneyball
Moneyball(2011)

I'm not really into sports movies, but Moneyball is a definite home run.

The Lion King

To all those who have any doubts about the 3D conversion of this Disney classic, I have only this to say to you: hakuna matata.

Our Idiot Brother

A little predictable here, a little cliche there, but Our Idiot Brother is still a good time. Toss in a solid cast of characters (especially the edgier-than-usual Zooey Deschanel) and I'm sold!

Conan the Barbarian
½

Stupid and uninspired. I had low expectations for this and I almost wanna say they weren't even met.

Cowboys & Aliens

Freakin' awesome! Favreau took a B-movie premise and turned it into a total BA flick!

The Change-Up

There are some rough edges (most notably the slapstick/cartoonish moments with the twin babies), but the raunchy laughs and great Reynolds/Bateman chemistry make this plenty enjoyable.

Winnie the Pooh
½

A fantasticly lighthearted trip down memory lane. If you have kids, definitely take them to see this!

Captain America: The First Avenger
½

I had high hopes for this one, and thankfully, those expectations were happily met. My only gripe is that some of the actions bits aren't quite on par with other superhero flicks. Regardless, this is one of the most well-done superhero origin stories ever (IMO) and has me VERY excited for The Avengers.

Super 8
Super 8(2011)

AMAZING from beginning to end. This is the one to beat in 2011 thus far.

Green Lantern

Critics and comic book fans may have been sorely disappointed, but I found Green Lantern to be surprisingly great! Just as enjoyable as Thor, but still not as good as First Class IMO.

X-Men: First Class
½

Aside from a few cheesy moments, First Class hits all the right notes for an awesome superhero flick.

The Hangover Part II
½

It may borrow a few aspects from the first one, but there are enough differences here to make The Hangover Part II a solid sequel. And unlike most critics and movie goers, I personally wouldn't as far as to diminish this as a "remake" of sorts.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

While the smaller scale makes this arguably the weakest in the series (IMO), it's still chock-full of entertainment.

The Triplets of Belleville
½

VERY bizarre, but oddly enjoyable for the most part.

Born To Be Wild
½

It may be on the short side, but what's there is truly remarkable. Top it off with stunning natively-shot 3D footage and Morgan Freeman's overused-but-still-perfect narration, and you have a totally worthwhile nature doc.

Frenemy
Frenemy(2010)

Pure and utter garbage. Don't waste your time.

Sucker Punch
Sucker Punch(2011)
½

It may not have the smartest or deepest story, but Sucker Punch almost completely makes up for it with style and grace. All I have to say is "chicks with guns" and "bunny mech".

Paul
Paul(2011)
½

It may not have quite as many laughs as Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, but Paul is still just as fun of a ride.

Take Me Home Tonight
½

My top contender for sleeper hit of 2011. Much like last year's "Easy A", this movie brings back memories of John Hughes past. It may not break new ground, but the awesome cast and pitch-perfect 80's setting make this a fun ride from beginning to credits.

Rango
Rango(2011)
½

So clever and awesome! I was laughing and throughly entertained the whole way through.

The King's Speech

Definitely worthy of it's Best Picture Oscar. Incredibly polished in almost every aspect and the film's headliners (Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, and Geoffrey Rush) give flawless performances.

The Social Network

Quite fantastic. Who knew that a movie about Facebook could be so damn engaging.

True Grit
True Grit(2010)

Nothing short of fantastic. The Coens have done it again!

Unknown
Unknown(2011)
½

Sadly, this action-thriller left me a bit disappointed. While it's hard to deny the recent badassary of Liam Neeson, his character seemed very bumbling with only a small handful of Taken-esque moments. Overall not terrible, just typical.

The Town
The Town(2010)
½

Awesome movie! Affleck is really proving himself as a director.

Buried
Buried(2010)

Wow, very surprised with how good this was. To quote the Double-Rainbow Guy, "It's so intense!".

Tron Legacy
Tron Legacy(2010)

The naysayers don't know what they're talking about, this movie is undoubtedly AWESOME.

Minghags
Minghags(2009)

While I really enjoyed Haggard, this little-to-no effort sequel is just pure garbage. I'm amazed I haven't lost every last brain cell in my head after watching it.

Tangled
Tangled(2010)
½

With The Princess & The Frog last year and now Tangled this year, it's refreshing to see Disney return to their roots.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1

It may not have the "magic" of the previous Potter movies, but the story and dark tone were enough to keep it afloat. My biggest criticism: it had more trees than a Cheech and Chong movie.

Megamind
Megamind(2010)

Based on the trailers/commercials, I expected this to be more Monsters Vs. Aliens (crap) and less Despicable Me (great). Fortunately, the top-notch cast and pleasant humor make Megamind just the opposite!

Paranormal Activity 2

Although it retains a lot of the issues I had with the first one, I found myself enjoying this sequel a bit more (probably due to my low expectations).

Jackass 3
Jackass 3(2010)
½

As gross, vile, painful, and disgusting as it may have been at times, I still found myself DYING with laughter. While the extra dimension isn't necessary for a movie like this, it actually proved to be a nice touch IMO.

MacGruber
MacGruber(2010)

Simply ridiculous. But I wouldn't expect anything less from an SNL flick.

District 9
District 9(2009)

Freakin' awesome! I've been wanting to see this movie for so long and now that I finally have, I can say it was worth the wait!

The Expendables
½

Damn, what a satisfying action flick!

Up in the Air
½

A little on the dull side at times, but not bad overall.

The Road
The Road(2009)

While an overall great movie, it still, as in most cases, pales in comparison to the amazing book.

The Other Guys

Easily one of Will Ferrell's better movies and yet another example of why the world needs more Michael Keaton!

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Such a fun freakin' movie! I lesbians it!

Dinner for Schmucks

Brilliant comedic cast, some surprising touching moments, and the most impressive mouse dioramas I've EVER seen.

Ninja Assassin

If you're in the mood for a crazy bloody over-the-top action flick, this will satisfy aplenty!

Cyrus
Cyrus(2010)

Great humor and performances all around. This is the sleeper hit of 2010.

Inception
Inception(2010)
½

Would've given this five stars if it wasn't for the sluggish first hour. The rest however, is a complete thrill ride!

The Last Airbender
½

It's nowhere near as bad as critics were claiming, but fans of the series will be sorely disappointed with this one.

However, if you can look past the weak dialog, flaky acting (Nicola Peltz is fucking TERRIBLE), slight storyline changes, lack of comic relief, and cringe-worthy alternate character name pronunciations, you'll still find a good chuck of entertainment here (I'll never grow tired of the fighting/bending scenes!).

Even with that said: If Nickelodeon was smart, they would hire a new director & screenwriter for the next two movies (Books 2 & 3). As for M. Night, he should probably put effort into killing himself. Let's just hope he doesn't fail at that too.

Gran Torino
Gran Torino(2009)

Another knockout for The Eastwood.

Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3(2010)

An amazing conclusion to (IMO) one of the best trilogies ever to grace the silver screen.

Get Him to the Greek

Quite hilarious! Even better than Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Gentlemen Broncos

One of the weirdest movies I've ever seen. However, Sam Rockwell's character is pretty damn unforgettable.

Signs
Signs(2002)
½

One of the better Shyamalamadingdong movies. Although I could've done without the monotone/animatronic acting.

The Brothers Bloom

Whimsical and wonderfully shot. I loved it!

Death Proof
Death Proof(2007)
½

Pretty boring unfortunately. I recommend skipping to end for the amazing car chase.

The Dark Knight

Best. Superhero. Movie. EVER.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

I really wanted to enjoy this one, but the rough edges and uninteresting characters/story got in the way. Skip this crap and go play the games.

Robin Hood
Robin Hood(2010)
½

Robin Hood, with a dash of epic.

The Proposal
The Proposal(2009)
½

A cute comedy. Worth checking out with a significant other.

Couples Retreat
½

Far from being a comedic knock-out, but the good cast, occasional laughs, and "screensaver" scenery made it pretty enjoyable.

The Soloist
The Soloist(2009)
½

Despite the negative reviews, I found it to be a wonderfully made movie.

Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire

A powerful movie with great performances across the board.

Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2(2010)

Every bit as fun and awesome as the first one!

The Blind Side

A great feel good movie that showcases the importance of family values. Definitely exceeded my expectations.

Moon
Moon(2009)
½

Quite an amazing sci-fi flick. Sam Rockwell should have at the very LEAST gotten an Oscar nod for this role.

The Losers
The Losers(2010)

Eh, it was decent. If you're looking forward to the upcoming A-Team movie and are in need of an action flick RIGHT NOW, then this should hold you over.

Fantastic Mr. Fox
½

This movie is the opposite of a cussing wet sandwich.

Kick-Ass
Kick-Ass(2010)

A movie that lives up to its title 100%.

Date Night
Date Night(2010)

A fun ride that's also sweet and pretty hilarious.

Million Dollar Baby

Easily one of the finest films of the last decade. I didn't want it to end!

Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price

A decent documentary. Although I didn't like how one-sided it was and the editing was pretty terrible (especially the ending, BLEH).

Clash of the Titans

Not bad I suppose. Action scenes were pretty entertaining, but a majority of the dialog bits had me falling asleep and it was painfully obvious that the 3D was added in post. However, Liam Neeson as Zeus = AWESOME.

Alice in Wonderland

Quite bizarre and wacky. Overall, Burton doesn't disappoint.

Hot Tub Time Machine

Ridiculous as ridiculous can be.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
½

A great family flick and surprisingly enjoyable for someone my age. Greg Heffley is almost like a modern day Charlie Brown.

Jennifer's Body

Mindless fun at its finest. Amanda Seyfried proves that she can kick major ass!

Big Fan
Big Fan(2009)

Nice to see Patton Oswalt take on a more serious role and pull it off so damn well. And yes, the Eagles DO suck.

Shutter Island

Proves that Scorsese is still one of the best.

500 Days of Summer

Word on the street was right, this really is Annie Hall for a new generation.

The Lovely Bones

I haven't read the book yet, but besides the so-so dialogue and the occasional cheesy Mark-Wahlberg-playing-a-family-friendly-role moments, I still thought the movie was pretty enjoyable.

Youth in Revolt
½

It's typical Michael Cera, but that's not a bad thing!

Sherlock Holmes
½

Awesome from all angles. Good to see Guy Ritchie finally break the cycle.

Avatar
Avatar(2009)

While not a perfect movie, it still holds up as a landmark in Sci Fi cinema history.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon
½

Anything that could've been cool was cut short by scenes that consisted of simplistic dialogue and lame (non) dramatic pauses. And Kristen Stewart needs acting school pronto.

Disney's A Christmas Carol
½

Quite possibly the best Christmas movie of this generation!

The Happening

Not even the wonderful Zooey Deschanel could save this roting pile of steaming diarrhea.

Hostel
Hostel(2006)

A complete waste of film.

Southland Tales
½

Very odd and mediocre, though it did have a few interesting aspects.

Donnie Darko
Donnie Darko(2001)

In a word: overrated.

Extract
Extract(2009)
½

Far from Mike Judge's best, but still pretty decent.

Smart People
Smart People(2008)

Smart People? More like boring people. Such a disappointment!

Paranormal Activity
½

Eh. While the tense bedroom scenes were awesomely done, the rest (ie. majority) of the movie just didn't live up to the hype for me. Not bad, just disappointing.
