Movie Ratings and Reviews

17 Again
17 Again(2009)

I must admit that, being a staunch opponent of Zac Efron, I actually found this film enjoyable. The cringe-worthy moments of young-adultness, and the amusing moments of geek chic, all combined to make this movie an entertaining commentary on what it would be like to be 17 again. That being 3 years ago for me, I don't have to use too much imagination.

The Proposal
The Proposal(2009)

Really enjoyed this film, in direct contrast to The Sh**book. Yeah, so it doesn't have the deepest plot or whatever, but it's like a fight between Batman and Robin: great to watch even though you know what's coming at the end of it (Batman would clearly win, and Robin would clearly cry).

The Notebook
The Notebook(2004)

I don't like this film.

Blast From the Past

I would say it deserves 1% more, purely on the basis that it was enjoyable and fun. I laughed at the funny moments, and thought about what it would have been like to grow up in a bomb shelter for 35 years. As a minimum, I expect a film to make me want to experience its storyline!

Hot Shots!
Hot Shots!(1991)

The 81% does it justice.

Finally, some agreeable reviews.


All I'll say is: Bonjour to cinematic greatness.

Kung Pow! Enter the Fist
½

11%, excuse me?
Now I remember why I hate the general population of film critics.

When I first saw this film as a spritely teenager I found it hilariously random, appropriately silly and, best of all, repeatably watchable!

Several years later, on a the sofa of my University house, my friends and I enjoying an appropriate amount of 'sandwiches' (HIMYM), we delved into the depths of comedy history and watched this. I think I laughed so hard I ruptured my left testicle.

Up
Up(2009)

Childish banter and a plot that makes you wish dogs talked, balloons attached to houses really resulted in flight and giant birds made excellent friends. Really, what more could you want from an animated film? Thought-provoking and entertaining, fantastic!

Death Race
Death Race(2008)
½

Perhaps not Statham's best performance, but by no means his worst. Watch this film expecting a calm, intelligent, well-planned action film and prepare to be disappointed.However, go in there expecting nothing but a film full of dirty banter and the energy of a six-year-old boy on ecstasy, and you'll love it.

Taken
Taken(2009)
½

A movie of power and substance. Not only highlighting important issues, but delivering an blood-pumping assault on the senses.

From anger to blood thirst, you'll feel it all.

An epic film.
