Rating History

Marvel's The Avengers
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

If you've enjoyed Joss Whedon's past work, you're familiar with his knack for writing snappy dialogue and strong female characters. You'll find it in his latest, "The Avengers". The pace of the movie never slows down, and the cast rises up to the challenge of Whedon's script.

Great action, great dialog, excellent inter-character chemistry, and just fun to watch. Performances of note include Robert Downey, Jr. as the snarky Tony Stark/Iron Man, as well as Tom Hiddleston as a deliciously deranged Loki. If you liked the preceding movies (ironman, Thor, Capn America), you will love this.

The Artist
The Artist (2011)
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A thoroughly enjoyable movie! Took a few minutes to get into the "silent movie" mode but after that it was uphill all the way.

The Artist features two outstanding lead performances set in a gorgeous period landscape. It is beautiful and fitting tribute to the art of movie making. The silent movie approach never feels gimmicky but rather forces the viewer to engage with the characters emotions even more. Go see it to appreciate how a movie can transport you back to a different era and experience just how magical a movie can be.

Prometheus (2012)
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Prometheus is a prequel within a prequel, meaning the movie sets up for another prequel leading up to the first Alien movie. That being said, the film is excellent. Michael Fassbender steals the show as the cold and calculating android DAVID and Ridley Scott's directions is top notch; the film looks beautiful.

That being said, there were a lot of unanswered questions that leave much to be desired. My friends and I all came out of the film with different interpretations of certain scenes and motifs. However, that is what makes Prometheus such a special film. It demands so much out of the audience and is one of the more intellectual summer blockbusters. It is a fantastic flick that warrants repeat viewings and thoughtful discussion.

The Hunger Games
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

As a big fan of the books, sometimes you worry about how faithful a movie will be to its source material. With The Hunger Games film adaptation, those fears are removed almost entirely.

The film is extremely well done. It brings the story to life, and Jennifer Lawrence successfully carries the film as Katniss. Besides some added scenes and dialogue, the film follows the book almost to a T. I went into the movie with hesitancy, and came out hardly able to contain my excitement for the next one.

My only real complaint was that damn SHAKY CAM! It was very distracting for many of the dialogue scenes, especially in the beginning.
