Yifan Chen's Movie Ratings - Rotten Tomatoes

Movie Ratings and Reviews

Kingsman: The Secret Service
½

Refreshing breeze in the spy genre.

Still Alice
Still Alice(2015)
½

Frightening as fuck. Another reason to go vegan, to not smoke/drink and to exercise. Unless it's genetic, then you're fucked.

Selma
Selma(2015)

History is a fucking loop, the same shit happens over and over. People forget and have to learn the hard way again.

Jupiter Ascending
½

It's a turd but hey, it's a pretty turd.

Interstellar
Interstellar(2014)
½

Obviously a masterpiece, inspired by another one and hopefully gonna be remembered. The movie aside, global warming is happening and maybe sandstorms will be a symptom.

Fifty Shades of Grey

Apparently it's attractive to be a stalker and a sadist, as long as you are good looking and rich.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
½

I heard that Tolkien's family forbid further use of his material.

Enemy
Enemy(2014)
½

Had to check out some explanation because I'm dumb.

Whiplash(2014)

Sorry my bad, i'm not quite on the tempo.

½

It's impossible to not like this big silly airbag robot.

Nightcrawler
Nightcrawler(2014)

How to be a successful sociopath.

What We Do In The Shadows

Flight of the Conchords nostalgia.

The Equalizer
½

When an old and out of shape Denzel can still fuck the russian mafia up. But the most satisfying is probably seeing Dan get owned.

John Wick
John Wick(2014)
½

Probably the best assassin of the year. 50 that Keanu can take on Liam/Denzel easy.

Fury
Fury(2014)

German soldiers in this film are stormtroopers in disguise.

Only Lovers Left Alive

Another perspective on these blood suckers.

The Interview

The hype fucked up my expectations.

Gone Girl(2014)

Crazy bitches gotta be crazy.

½

STARSHIP ALL DAY LONG BABY!

The Guest
The Guest(2014)
½

He could do a good T-1000 i guess.

The Drop
The Drop(2014)
½

Gandolfini's last film and a belgian director are the only relevant things.

Predestination
½

A big Ethan Hawk and a huge Sarah Snook in this refreshing time travelling sci fi.

Dracula Untold
½

The first of the Universal Monsters franchise reboot, i'm curious about the upcoming monsters.

The Maze Runner
½

Hopefully, there will be answers that make sense in the sequel.

Boyhood
Boyhood(2014)

It's one of a kind film, despite I don't relate to the most of it, I definitely can understand what he and the people around him are going through.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
½

Bay's visuals team did a splendid job and those are the turtles I was waiting for. KAWAFUCKINGBUNGAMOTHABITCHES.

Daybreakers
Daybreakers(2010)

Good idea but i wish it had more budget.

Lucy
Lucy(2014)
½

Started out pretty good but got more and more messed up toward the end.

Nymphomaniac: Volume II
½

An interesting subject in a really complex film but also extremely difficult to watch.

Nymphomaniac: Volume I
½

An interesting subject in a really complex film but also extremely difficult to watch.

Guardians of the Galaxy
½

Maybe not the most powerful marvel team but undoubtedly the most entertaining.

Just Another Pandora's Box (Yuet gwong bo hup)
½

Parody movie by mo lei tau director Jeffrey Lau with tons of cameos.

Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
½

Although we got some closure and that same unique graphical style, the main story is not as compelling, overall less impactful.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

Even though I know the outcome of the story, I hoped for another ending.

The Expendables 3

I believe Stallone is making history here.

Hercules
Hercules(2014)
½

Personally, I would've been more exited to see the labors.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

Everything is growing in the right direction, looking forward to the third one.

Neighbors
Neighbors(2014)

It's not crazy laughable but the contrast between young parents and soon to be adults is interesting.

The Purge: Anarchy
½

It's ugly but it may be the salvation for a fucked up nation.

22 Jump Street

It's dumb as fuck but somehow it works. Shout out to the Lucas Bros.

Batman: Assault on Arkham

For once, The Bat isn't getting the spotlights and it's refreshing, he's not The Bright Knight after all.

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow
½

Like most sci fi with time manipulation, it's flawed but really fun.

X-Men: Days of Future Past
½

Singer's "Last Stand", the one we should have had.

Chef
Chef(2014)
½

It's like an episode of Anthony Bourdain with a touch of family comedy.

The Fault In Our Stars

I see why it's notorious among teenage readers.

A Million Ways to Die in the West
½

Obviously it isn't Seth's best work but I enjoyed the homage to the western genre, I presume he's a fan and I like when it's done in passion. Ewan McGregor's best cameo ever btw.

Pacific Rim
Pacific Rim(2013)
½

Gotta love giant robots fighting giant monsters, can't wait for Godzilla !

Godzilla
Godzilla(2014)

It builds well but I just can't climax.

Forks Over Knives

Just give it a try, you can always go back to your whatever diet if not satisfied.

Generation Iron
½

It's basically a remake of Pumping Iron.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Paul Giamatti, what happened?!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
½

It was your second chance captain, i'm done with you.

Divergent
Divergent(2014)

It's like the new twilight saga, it's bad but it makes money. Let's see how it gets because the girl looks promising though.

Noah
Noah(2014)

So it's basically the vegan gladiator and his family fighting against those barbaric meat eaters. And then the family of 6 repopulated the world in consanguinity.

Before Midnight

"Before Sunrise (1995) as a film about what might be, Before Sunset (2004) as a film about what could or should be, and Before Midnight (2013) as a film about what is." E. H.

Before Sunset

Love the long takes, the acting, the conversations and the ending. Everything seems so genuine and so sweet.

La Cité de la Peur
½

The french counterpart of comedies like airplane and hot shots.

Before Sunrise
½

A lovely and sweet one night stand romance.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Dare i say it's his masterpiece; love them comps. Subtle humor and an awesome cast as always. The film is out of this world, just like Mendl's.

The Monkey King (Da nao tian gong)

I suffered high blood loss from eyesbleeding during the movie.

The LEGO Movie
½

It's fun, great story, well made animations and an excellent cast. Everybody will enjoy but the pace is way too fast for kids. Pop culture advocates will love it.

Pumping Iron
Pumping Iron(1976)

Surprisingly funny and captivating.

RoboCop
RoboCop(2014)

It should be fine for the newer generations but for me it's like heh.

Her
Her(2013)
½

Smart, touching and moody, definitely a Woody Allen inspired. Scarlett sounds hot as fuck btw.

I, Frankenstein

I only watched it because it's from the creators of the Underworld franchise, but it does not have the same outcome.

Snowpiercer
Snowpiercer(2014)

It's complex but has flaws, felt cheap and boring at first but then the more it progresses the more interesting it got.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
½

Maybe a bunch of smiles here and there, nothing hilarious.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Gods
½

In this movie, unlike all the others, everything is set on a happy tone. The menace isn't actually that menacing, everybody is joking all the time and even the fights aren't as impressive (Goku doesn't get naked in the end). What happened to the franchise, is it like some kind of reboot ? It's weird.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
½

I'm just glad to see the gorgeous Evangeline Lilly.

Only God Forgives

Visually brilliant, don't need words for storytelling, underrated by many imo. A piece of advice : pay attention to the hands.

The Wolf of Wall Street
½

Another comedy success from Scorsese.

Food, Inc.
Food, Inc.(2009)
½

Interesting and informal.

American Hustle

So boring despite the great cast.

Frozen
Frozen(2013)
½

Is Elsa the first Disney queen ?

12 Years a Slave

What saddens me the most is that he made no difference at all at that time.

Rush
Rush(2013)
½

Not a that big deal imo.

In a World...

"Like her character, Bell has made herself a contender in a male-dominated industry. And a damn funny one at that."

Oldboy
Oldboy(2013)

Go for the original.

Machete Kills
½

Unique sense of humor and everything's done on purpose so it's fine.

Fruitvale Station

I basically just skipped to the last 15 mins and looked the story up on wiki.

Blue Jasmine
Blue Jasmine(2013)

When you got carried to the top and got used to it, the moment you fall, you fall hard and sometimes, you go crazy.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2

Surprisingly, I found myself smirking a couple of times. Don't get me wrong, the animations are amazing, the voice actors are great and it is actually also kinda funny.

Thor: The Dark World

WaaaaaaDaaaaaaaFaaaaaaaaak !?

Dallas Buyers Club

Dedications and performances to show a sad and ugly period of the 80s.

Lee Daniels' The Butler
½

Informal and emotional, a good history lesson.

Enough Said
Enough Said(2013)

Awkwardly bittersweet, that's the word.

Riddick
Riddick(2013)

The retarded twin of Pitch Black.

Don Jon
Don Jon(2013)

Dislike the ending but the rest is pretty good. Kudos to JGL for being director, writer and lead actor of the film.

Russian Dolls (Les Poupées Russes)

Not as good as "L'auberge espagnole" but still fun to watch Xavier trying to cope with all the shit that's happening to him.

Steamboy
Steamboy(2005)

Crazy animations but the story is weak as fuck.

Alan Partridge

More a half smile comedy than a LMAO one.

Prisoners
Prisoners(2013)

A relatively effective thriller with a great cast and some crazy performances.

Drinking Buddies

Okay i only watched the film because of Anna and Olivia, but it turns out to be a good little surprise lesson on social behaviors and relationships.

Elysium
Elysium(2013)
½

Strong visuals but story wise, it's like a weaker version of District 9.

The Big Lebowski
½

Coen's comedies are always so special with all those unique characters. Let's bowl !

The Conjuring
½

To me, it looks like a paranormal activity that happens in the 70s.

The Wolverine
½

Just forget about it and wait for the X-Men.

The World's End
½

The movie is good early on but as soon as they meet Pierce Brosnan, it goes down hill from there on.

Gravity
Gravity(2013)

You can never get used to the silence.

Despicable Me 2

Gebudaga guhguh dipalabla toblibuh vvahgouhaha napruuhh fun hahaheha !

The Kid
The Kid(1921)

No my favorite but still so damn good

The Great Dictator
½

Despite making the best speech ever, Charles belongs to the silent era.

King Kong
King Kong(1933)
½

80 years later, still enjoyable. "There is something ageless and primeval about King Kong that still somehow works" R.E.

Repulsion
Repulsion(1965)

Must've been pretty disturbing at the time. Polanski's nasty little secret fantasy.

Monsters University

First prequel from Pixar's, it has a few good moments but nothing crazy though.

The Hangover Part III

This final installment just killed the franchise, rest in peace.

Kick-Ass
Kick-Ass(2010)

Had a fun time with the most average of superheroes.

This Is the End
½

The cast and the cameos, period.

Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)
½

Even though Iron Man has gone from cool to lame in this one, people would never have enough of superheroes.

World War Z
World War Z(2013)
½

There are definitely some intense moments but It didn't feel complete, I believe adding another 30 min would've made it so much better.

Fast & Furious 6
½

The last one of Lin's trilogy, it feels like the most action pact one and the best crafted one.

Simon Killer
Simon Killer(2013)
½

I was expecting more brutality because of the title.

Mud
Mud(2013)
½

To be honest, it was kinda boring and i'm disappointed because i liked Jeff Nichols previous film "Take shelter". But I have to admit that he's definitely a master writer and his career seems really promising.

Now You See Me

The cast was awsesome but WTF IS THE NONSENSE ABOUT THIS FREAKING EYE THING ?

Epic
Epic(2013)

The trailer ruined my expectations.

The Wizard of Oz
½

I'm just wandering why Dorothy will miss Scarecrow the most.

Oz the Great and Powerful

It's a great tribute but a not so great film.

Jack the Giant Slayer
½

Ewan's hair was pretty cool, medieval hair wax ftw

DCU: Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

BEST ANIMATED COMIC ADAPTATION EVER (so far)

21 And Over
21 And Over(2013)
½

Surprisingly, i had a really good time watching it.

Les barons (The Barons)

Ahhhh la bonne vieille priorité de droite.

Warm Bodies
Warm Bodies(2013)

"It's like the Capulets and the Montagues all over again - only the Montagues don't have a pulse."

Middle Men
Middle Men(2010)

Came for the R rating, got disappointed.

Movie 43
Movie 43(2013)

Failed so fcking hard, i can't believe it.

Take Shelter
Take Shelter(2011)

The ambiguous ending tends to interpretations, so just make your own one.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

Okay the story is shitty but the actions sequences were pretty good actually. A good one time fun.

Raising Arizona

Not among the best Coen's but definitely has its charm.

The Breakfast Club

The most unlikely friendship there is. As always the nerd being the fifth wheel and still not getting any pussy.

Naked
Naked(1993)
½

British + no subtitles = i just can't focus

Incendies
Incendies(2011)

The twisted ending hammered my face so fucking hard.

Total Recall
Total Recall(2012)
½

The visual is good, especially Kate and Jessica's.

Chinese Zodiac

Definitely one of JC's best movie ever and probably his last major feature. He put everything he had and all his heart in it like it's a parting present, just don't focus too much on the story and the acting and enjoy.

Lincoln
Lincoln(2012)

Recommended for a very selective audience.

Django Unchained
½

It's a great movie but a not so great Tarantino.

Zero Dark Thirty

I certainly learned a lot but didn't feel much.

Millennium Actress (Sennen joyû)

Are you ready for a never fulfilled love story that goes through a lifetime and beyond ?

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
½

A new journey begins, let's see how it goes.

Wreck-it Ralph
½

That awkward moment when you pause to find all the references.

Perfect Blue
Perfect Blue(1999)

Once, there were Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata. Now, Satoshi Kon is among them.

The Master
The Master(2012)

""The Master" is fabulously well-acted and crafted, but when I reach for it, my hand closes on air." R.E.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

I WANT JIRO TO STUFF SUSHI IN MY FACE HOLE RIGHT NOW

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I prefer the remake, Rooney wore a merkin.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
½

Strong performances and directing but Fincher's best thriller is still Se7en.

Argo
Argo(2012)
½

Despite being loosely based on a true story, you know, they had to make stuff up to make it interesting to watch. It's none the less a great movie showing cooperation between some good people.

Skyfall
Skyfall(2012)
½

I'm satisfied with this third and final installment of the prequel saga. I enjoyed all the references to old episodes of the franchise.

Silent Hill: Revelation

The story and the mood were pretty true to the game but it's still really far from what the fans need. Adelaide is great, i have big expectations about her.

Night of the Creeps

I might have liked it ten years ago.

The Other Guys

Don't go chasing waterfalls. Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to. I know that you're gonna have it your way or nothing at all, but I think you're moving too fast.

Step Brothers
½

It's all about performances, not the plot, okay.

Dead Alive
Dead Alive(1993)

It's like a lesser serious version of The Thing.

The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)
½

The longer it goes, the nastier it gets.

The Human Centipede (First Sequence)

Just imagine the stuff that comes out of C.

The Notebook
The Notebook(2004)

Emotion wise, it's a beautifully told story.

Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy
½

Really enjoyed all the cameos :) News team, assemble !

21 Jump Street

Disappointed by the overrating.

Flight
Flight(2012)
½

I understand all the struggles he's been through but i don't feel it.

Warrior
Warrior(2011)
½

Dropped a couple of tears. Fuck my sensibility.

Dirty Love
Dirty Love(2005)
½

This movie is obviously rotten as fuck but I admired Jenny going all berserk like that, you know, without any self-consciousness.

To Kill A Mockingbird

The point of view of a 6 yo girl in a time where there are no civil rights and that next door monster will be her savior. Shout out to Peck's performance and hopefully kids in the 60's learned a little about good and bad thanks to him.

Cloud Atlas
Cloud Atlas(2012)

It's long, exhausting and hard to follow sometimes but it's worth the effort they put in it.

Compliance
Compliance(2012)
½

Remember Milgram's experiment ?

Celeste and Jesse Forever

Just wanted to watch because Rashida's in it and i'm so glad that i did it. It's funny, touching and adorable.

Seven Psychopaths

This cast made some brilliant psychos.

Sucker Punch
Sucker Punch(2011)
½

Most people just see the surface in this movie, but it has actually so much dept that needs a second view and some brain using.

Zombieland
Zombieland(2009)
½

The rules seem legit to me.

Let Me In
Let Me In(2010)

If you have the choice, go for the original one.

Starship Troopers: Invasion
½

It's a good start but could do so much better with the sequels. First time seeing nudity in an animation movie btw.

Oldboy
Oldboy(2005)

I'm truly speechless in front of this masterpiece.

Visitor Q (Bijitâ Q)

Weird as fuck but it was actually interesting to watch.

The Last House on the Left

These old horror movies with the happy end just don't do it for me.

Funny Games
Funny Games(2008)

Performances were fine, especially Naomi, and the plot was ok but the rewind with the remote was just over the edge.

Koroshiya 1 (Ichi the Killer)

That multi-genre movie was good. I'm just a bit confused about the ending but heh, it's a Takashi Miike.

Cannibal Holocaust

The animal scenes were pretty brutal and the impaled girl effect was well made

Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat

40 years later, still that bad. A star for the hot girls.

Blood Feast
Blood Feast(1963)

Too cheap, too old.

August Underground's Mordum

All the crazy laughing and the crappy camera was so annoying. The effects were good but it was just so boring to watch.

Inside (À l'intérieur)
½

Pregnant women shouldn't watch this.

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
½

Greed and wildness can drive men to madness and do stupid things. Don't play the joke of the lord, fate, nature or whatever it is, truly a life lesson.

Dredd
Dredd(2012)
½

Judgement time. Great visuals but worthless acting and unflavored plot. Sentence, consume with popcorn then a lifetime of iso-cube without parole.

Frankenweenie

Burton's way to pay tribute to old monster franchises and to introduce them to the younger audience. Frankenstein obviously but there's more aswell like Dracula, the mummy, werewolf and even Godzilla.

The Baytown Outlaws
½

Just some redneck warriors going on a road trip

Looper
Looper(2012)

Such great performances and time travels still make my brain cells twist.

Pitch Perfect
½

BEST MOVIE ABOUT A CAPELLA EVER. It was so a-ca-awesome! Btw I love you Anna.

The Third Man
½

The plot was too predictable, the score was fine but not right for the genre/mood. The performances didn't impress me and Welles did so little. This film noir did not captivates me, on the contrary, I was bored watching it.

End of Watch
End of Watch(2012)

Just two cops fooling around on their daily life.

Resident Evil: Retribution
½

the most fun of the franchise so far

Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning
½

the fighting scenes was pretty good imo but the plot is a little confusing if you haven't watched the prequels

ParaNorman
ParaNorman(2012)
½

I guess kids can enjoy it the most but stop motion movies always impress me

The Dark Knight Rises

The slow story/characters building to the final climax, despite having some up and downs, was pretty ok, and Anne is definitely a plus, but one thing i can't get used to is Bane's voice.

The Expendables 2
½

honestly the Schwarzy, Willis, Van Damme and Norris combo was awesome. I just missed Li a little but at least they kept the yellow minority

Ted
Ted(2012)

a fairyly standard plot and probably just a good laugh for the average audience but it's such pure gold for pop culture geeks/macfarlane's fans

Brave
Brave(2012)

even though far from the best pixars, it's charming and good fun, plus in scottish fashion

The Lives of Others
½

it's obviously a great piece but unfortunately i didn't feel that concerned by the story, i recognize its strong performances though

The Amazing Spider-Man
½

Garfield is so much cooler than Maguire but i really prefere the story of the old one, hopefully it gets better on the sequel. Emma's still one of my crushes.

28 Weeks Later...

jeremy renner back then right before the hurt locker

28 Days Later

running zombies are crazy scary

The Bridge on the River Kwai
½

a solid Guinness, an epic screenplay, a well built bridge, a hardly earned respect from the japs, and to what end ? madness.

Attack the Block
½

c'mon fam, these lads did a great job with no bloody budget, really good score btw bruv

The Apartment

it's a must-see, you know masterpiecewise

Das Boot
Das Boot(1981)

strong performances, innovative camera moves, memorable score, realistic atmosphere, but i won't be able to watch it twice

Magic Mike
Magic Mike(2012)

Is it weird that I enjoyed watching men dancing and striping off ?

The Raid: Redemption
½

it was BRUTAL, remind me of the first ong bak, the only flaw is the acting but hey who cares ;)

Silent Hill
Silent Hill(2006)

How many of the critics actually played or even know about the game ? It's far from perfect but i think it's one of the rare film that is successfully adapted from a video game. Christophe did a great job, A for Effort.

The Toxic Avenger: Part II
½

minus the nudity but a japan culture documentary is added

The Toxic Avenger

it's like an all-in-one kind of movie, so much wtf that it is actually enjoyable

On the Doll
On the Doll(2007)

damn, it wasn't what i expected

Deadgirl
Deadgirl(2008)
½

frankly i'm kinda disappointed by the zombie sex

Pink Flamingos
½

that fucking coprophagy ending

I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman)

the bathtub scene was interesting ... :/

Quantum of Solace

the plane scene, nuff said

Casino Royale

best james bond reboot ever i believe

Julia X 3D
Julia X 3D(2011)

hercules vs 2 psycho whores

Shame
Shame(2011)

Sadness, pain, anger, emotions. An acting and directing masterpiece. If Michael fails as film actor, which i highly doubt, he still can do porn.

Resident Evil: Damnation

stop doing these live action bullshits and keep those puppies comin

Moonrise Kingdom
½

adorable, fun, anderson. kara has a bright future and hopefully they'll grow much more ;D

The Victim
The Victim(2012)

i was expecting more nude scenes, not that bad for a small budget movie and biehn was fine but overall still a little weak

Painted Skin: The Resurrection
½

i'm just keep getting bored with these chinese fantasy tale movies

Nekromantik
Nekromantik(1987)

the sex scenes weren't even worth it

Marvel's The Avengers

all-stars movies usually work, this one makes no exception.

Men in Black III
½

smith made me smile a couple of times and brolin decent, story ok, nice cameos, fun. jermaine as the villain ? odd.

The Players
The Players(2014)
½

definitely a funny one, even though a little predictable, and that scene between jean and alex was intense

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
½

loved it ten years before, still good

A Serbian Film
½

oh shit, that was hardcore but i pretty much enjoyed it

The Cabin in the Woods
½

best horror movie i've seen in ages, it's full of surprises and pretty funny for the genre, even though it has flaws, still pretty good overall

It Could Happen to You

an average romantic comedy and it reminds me of "it's a wonderful life"

Piranha 3DD
Piranha 3DD(2012)

a star just for the dead head between the giggling tities :)

The Pirates! Band of Misfits
½

great for children, me not that much

The Hunger Games
½

reminds too much of battle royal, jennifer was good and woody was fun

The Transformers - The Movie

in the 80's was it trendy to put those songs in the fighting scenes ?

The Secret World of Arrietty

Even though it's not directed by Miyazaki, but by one of his padawans, we can clearly feel his influence on this piece. He taught them well.

The Intouchables
½

It's been a while since i've watched a french film and i'm really glad that i'm not disappointed with this one

American Reunion

still kinda fun and tara reid still so weird/crappy

Singin' in the Rain

Usually, i'm not fancy of musicals but this one i just love it. The trio is so talented in dancing as good as singing and acting. It was amusing and i was entertained throughout the whole film.

Metropolis
Metropolis(1927)
½

Is inspirational to so many great sci-fi films, i felt so much emotions with those faces and its epic score that no need for voices. And probably the film with the most extras ive ever seen, Lang is the shit.

Wrath of the Titans

was even worse than the first one, i was like wtf did i just watch

Ghost Rider
Ghost Rider(2007)
½

This is actually decent compare to the second one but the villain guy was so bad, fortunately eva made it watchable.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

nicolas cage + face tattooed christophe lambert. nuff said

Double Indemnity

(Why them people talk so fast ?!) Even though the plot was obvious and predictable, the enigma behind the relationship between these people makes the film quite deep and interesting.

Appurushîdo (Appleseed)
½

mecha + shell shading + guns = fun

Cinema Paradiso (Nuovo Cinema Paradiso)

A touching film that makes you feel warm, brings nostalgia, reminds home. A memorable and sensitive score that melt perfectly in the mood.

Chronicle
Chronicle(2012)
½

It was kinda like "jedi academy" you know. I'm impressed that they kept the black guy alive that long lol. The end was meh and predictable. I'm not even gonna mention the early part.

Vertigo
Vertigo(1958)

i see what hitchcock did there with the manipulation, the fetishism, the obsession, and a little of mystery & suspense but i don't consider this as one of his masterpieces

Underworld Awakening
½

selene still good and the last battle was fun, the rest is garbage

All About Eve

Amazing screenplay and performances (especially Davis), it reminds me "sunset blvd" a little. Definitely the best film about getting fame by manipulating people

Super 8
Super 8(2011)

i could've appreciate but unfortunately i'm too old for this shit

The Sting
The Sting(1973)
½

that sting has a sting that stings hard

Full Metal Jacket

the training part was amazing but the war part wasn't that interesting

Raging Bull
Raging Bull(1980)
½

de niro's performance made it.

A Separation
A Separation(2011)
½

crazy performances, complex story, culture discovery, just mesmerizing.

Jerry Maguire
½

the romance part was so boring, i like Renà (C)e's voice but her acting skills are weird. Just show me the money and i'll keep this rating.

Bridesmaids
Bridesmaids(2011)

I like Kristen Wiig and this comedy really shows how good she is.

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol
½

most impossible of the missions, maybe even more than the original one

Downfall (Der Untergang)
½

beside historical informations, there's nothing interesting

Young Adult
Young Adult(2011)

I kinda like this alcoholic, depressed, crazy bitch and still, insanely hot. I thought it was really entertaining, interesting and fun to watch.

Lawrence of Arabia
½

I really enjoyed the journey part of the film, the adventure, the road to glory, friendship. The second half wasn't that interesting, just lawrence fighting everyone, including himself. I have to mention the epic score and O'Toole's performance.

Real Steel
Real Steel(2011)

People might liked it for its fighting scenes and cgi effects, i'm ok with that but for me, everything was just so clichà (C), so predictable. Fancy robot fights just wasn't enough

L.A. Confidential

what's so great about the cops of the great city of angels ? they have the new good cop bad cop thing

The Descendants
½

i wasn't really moved by the story but i understand the hardness of his situation and he must have so much stuff in his mind that he had to get through, fine performances and i quite enjoyed the mood

Chinatown
Chinatown(1974)

im not a big fan of this 1940s crime genre, nothing that exiting but just a wtf about the sister daughter stuff and the end is quite meh, i got admit that nicholson's performance is alright.

Project X
Project X(2012)

superbad + cloverfield but less funny and deja vu video footage style isn't that effective anymore. just some stars for the naked chicks and ThEcRaZyEnDiNg

Nanook of the North

it was more like sepia kinda probably the early b&w but it was so fun, so interesting and so touching that it doesn't age.

The Artist
The Artist(2011)

one of the best silent films i have ever seen, amazing performances, great directing, nice cameos, charming story,

Once Upon a Time in the West
½

good characters, great story, epic harmonica

The Help
The Help(2011)
½

you is moving story, you is great performances, you is such a fine film

The Hangover Part II

identical to the last one, just turn your brain off and there you go, have fun

The Tree of Life
½

the artistic imagery, the directorial style, childhood, nature, i just wasn't attracted to all that stuff, it remind me of kubrick's space odyssey but just didn't appeal me. It isn't a bad film, TM experiment a new concept there and people may like it. Thumb up to Pitt's performance and Chastain's hotness

Paranormal Activity 3

watched right before going to bed to help me sleep

The Ugly Truth
½

so clichà (C) and predictable, useless and unfunny scenes, but there are a few real life facts that might be helpful for some people

Rear Window
Rear Window(1954)

mystery, suspense, murder, grace kelly, voyeurism, all good stuff.

Seven Samurai (Shichinin no Samurai)

waw 3h30 is long. I'm not gonna say much about it because it's obviously a masterpiece that inspired so much great films. I'll just tell you what bothered me : Japanese women cry too much, too much man butts, old guy touch his head too often, crazy samurai talk so loud, ... :D

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas

it's really a bad film with dumb jokes but i just like these guys so meh why not it's christmas

The Adventures of Tintin

the action scenes were awesome but the film lacks of depth, everything was so fast didn't really had the time to care about the characters

Psycho
Psycho(1960)
½

a half of me says "most effective slasher film of its time" and the other half says "meh", but the more powerful took over ...

M
M(1931)

the last 15 mins made my rating, the rest was ok but it wasn't that captivating

Drive
Drive(2011)
½

i think gosling's performance is overrated but still good, the intro really get you into the mood and i really like the director's filming style, check out pusher trilogy

It's a Wonderful Life
½

it's a decent film for family because of its moral lessons and the typical happy ending but it has some flaws that bother me

The Hangover
The Hangover(2009)

just an average commercial film to watch with friends who dont want to use their brain. overall it's kinda overated imo

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

you see, there are 2 kinds of people, my friend : those who like it and those who love it

Puss in Boots

beside cute cats jokes, everything else is already done in other animation films in better ways

Sunset Boulevard

best drama about cinema of all time

Mou gaan dou (Infernal Affairs)

as a fan of hk mafia films, this is one of the favorites for sure, an all-around with drama, gun fights and crazy storyline

A Streetcar Named Desire

one of the brando's best performance and that arguing scene is just amazing

Hugo
Hugo(2011)

basically i was kinda disappointed by the storyline and most of the acting performances were jokes but scorcese put his heart in this so i give above average

Immortals
Immortals(2011)

managed to get into all time box office list, waw. JH, there are not much time left for an oscar old man. Nice hats/helmets btw

Midnight in Paris

the mood is quite enjoyable and allen's screenplay is fine, highlights on brody's cameo as dali

The Three Musketeers

actions and special effects were fine i guess, dont expect more. Waltz was ok, Mila kinda improved imo and Bloom failed.

The Shawshank Redemption

great screenplay and freeman's narration is just amazing.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

it's not a bad film but just not my kind of, too slow, i wasn't really caught by the story and still not used to the british accent, a great cast though

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

this one is worst of the saga til now, waste of time
