Rating History

The Hangover Part II
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I think my rating was augmeneted by the fact that I didn't go in with very high expectations. The first Hangover had been the freshest comedy of the decade and was one of my favourite films of 2009. The premise, the trailer and the confirmed cast all seemed to me that this was bound to be a very unoriginal film.

However, throughout this unoriginality were scenes of immense hilarity that can probably only be appreciated among males. The comedy makes the film worthwhile despite a ridiculous plot. Cooper, Helms and the other one put in just as good performances and well... the less we see of Jason Bartha the better.

The film is formulaic to the first one and it truly is one unoriginal sequel with darker, sometimes funnier, jokes. Worth watching among pals. Bigger but not better than the first.

Red Eye
Red Eye (2005)
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Starts off as a low key thriller and escalates into a high-octane cat and mouse fight. Excelled performances all around.

He's Just Not That Into You
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Some thoroughly annoying and unengaging characters, despite this it's a watchable film and quite good compared to many ensemble romantic comedys. Not terrible and it avoids many cliches that it could have easily fallen into.

Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Not without it's flaws, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll is a good film with fine performances.

Serkis is unquestionably fantastic as Ian Dury and forces the audience to feel sympathy to a sometimes detestable character. The rest of the cast are also brilliant but sometimes are acting to an unengaging story. The film feels overlong at times and the ending is so forgettable I struggle to remember even now how it did.

A very good film nonetheless and shows just how under-rated Andy Serkis is.

Schindler's List
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

One film has never made me feel so many different emotions, and I think no other film ever will.
