Rating History

Ted
Ted (2012)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Super funny, although naturally Ted just had to eventually take the predictable-romantic turn.

The Call
The Call (2013)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A pretty good weekend action flick, but it's riddled with cliche and, hence, is really nothing memorable.

A Nightmare on Elm Street
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Of the kind of vague memories I have of the original, I still think the original was better. But that goes for 99.99% of all remakes, right? Usually so. I also had my rightful reservations about Mike Bay directing it, instead of the person who should have--and you know who I'm talking about if you're a loyal NOES fan--Craven and Englund....would have been a five-times better movie if only Craven was in the mix..instead we got this, from the guy who produced the likes of Armageddon and Transformers. So you're good at blowing shit up and all, that's fine, but don't mess with a classic horror film way out of your genre, Mr.Bay.

Those criticisms out of the way, looking at the movie in different perspective as if it were a fresh, non-remake, I would say that was a pretty good horror flick. About on par with other slasher films, a little bit better though. Obviously it comes no where close to the '84 version (long before the usually-dreadful CGI came onto the scene).

Rubber
Rubber (2011)

I'll give you that there may have been more style and originality to the movie than I would've ever thought before watching it---but 'Rubber' is still what it is, a complete borefest and waste of time. I have honestly been more entertained by insect documentaries on the Discovery Channel.
