Rating History

Ocean's Eleven
5 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Smooth, slick as hell, simple, straight forward and direct. I've always loved this film unconditionally. Sure, objectively it may not be a perfect movie, but damn do I find it entertaining. From the soundtrack, cast, dialogue, cinematography and execution, this is a simple heist story executed with pizazz.

Star Trek Beyond
10 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

No need for a lengthy review. Star Trek Beyond, though lacking the distinction, depth and charm of its predecessors, is still action packed from beginning to end, and simply fun: A factor many blockbusters these days lack.

Side note: Simon Pegg manages to not be obnoxious here.

The Namesake
The Namesake (2006)
15 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Well acted, yes; Kal Penn shows his acting range here outside of comedy. The pacing was rather slow in parts though, particularly the first act. Being a film about something commendable and relatable (learning to appreciate what's handed down to us from our parents), the 2 hour runtime stretches the message pretty thin. Somewhere in the beginning of the third act The Namesake feels slightly lost and directionless, seemingly deviating from the "generational inheritance" story at times. Regardless, it was definitely interesting, at one point shocking and heartbreaking, and overall solid.
