Rating History

Harry Brown
Harry Brown (2010)
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I Coincidentally just watched Deathwish before watching Harry Brown. I don't know how many countless vigilante films have been made in between, but I'm sure it's in the hundreds. Unlike most, I really felt bad for Harry Brown in the beginning of the film. Many complain of the slow start, but it really sets up the rest of the film. Harry is a tormented soul. He is old and out dated. His wife is dead, and his only friend is killed by the scum whom have ruined his neighborhood. He is a man with truly nothing left. I felt the director did a tremendous job in balancing the violence with the emotion. If nothing else, Michael Caine is at his very best.

Frost/Nixon
Frost/Nixon (2008)

A Directorial masterpiece from Ron Howard. Superb acting and a plot line that keeps you glued up until the end.

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day
7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

You almost have to have had seen and enjoyed the first film to appreciate this sequel. I'll have to admit, there were many elements that disappointed me, and the rest just felt like deja vu. And though he makes a cameo in the end, Willem Dafoe's character was sorely missed. I didn't know why I enjoyed the first one so much until I watched this film without the presence of Willem. That being said, for an action film sequel that had been created specifically for the fans of the original, I think It came out pretty decent and entertaining. A little piece of advice: If you have not seen, or did not like the original, skip this movie.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I just watched this film for the second time. I fast forwarded through all the parts with Shia labeouf and Megan fox's dialogue and you know what? It came in at about an hour shorter and It made just as much sense. I felt the action was intense and I enjoyed the moments with the transformers and the military. But I have never seen a movie where the suppose stars are so bad and not even necessary in the plot. Every college professor who teaches screenwriting should use this script as the definition of forced exposition. DAMN YOU BAY! You did just fine in 1, what the hell happened?
