Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome
5 days ago via Flixster

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome is a poorly made sci-fi film that adds absolutely nothing to the series. The story follows a young Bill Adama during the First Cylon War as he embarks on a secret mission to transport a scientist who has critical information about the Cylons. The acting is awful and is almost unbearable to watch. The writing is also really poor; jumping around from scene to scene without much of a through-line holding it together. And the CGI is hit and miss; as some scenes are extremely good and others are terrible. Still, the film delivers some exciting action and tries to say something about the gritty reality of war. Incredibly disappointing, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome is a half-assed effort that fails to live up of the vision of Ronald D. Moore's reimagined series.

Déjà Vu
Déjà Vu (2006)
6 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

From director Tony Scott comes the exciting sci-fi thriller Déjà Vu. The story follows an ATF agent who's recruited to join a special task force that investigates a terrorist bombing using an experimental technology that can view 4 days into the past. Denzel Washington and Jim Caviezel lead the cast and deliver some very good performances. And Tony Scott's directing brings a lot of energy and excitement to the film. The writing is also quite impressive, particularly in how it explores time travel and issues of causality. Plus, the investigation itself is engaging and takes a number of interesting turns. The plot can be a little confusing at times, but overall Déjà Vu is an incredibly entertaining and action-packed film.

Exposed (2016)
10 days ago via Flixster

Excruciatingly boring and pointless, Exposed is a terrible film. Keanu Reeves stars as a police detective who's investigating the death of his partner, who turns out to have been dirty. The performances are bland and lifeless, and are made worse by the slow pacing and rote directing. And for some reason half of the film is in Spanish, which is rather disjointing and makes the different character plots seem disconnected from each other. Extremely monotonous, Exposed is a complete waste of time.

Stand by Me
Stand by Me (1986)
11 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Stand By Me is a compelling and touching coming-of-age film by director Rob Reiner. Based on a novella by Stephen King, the story follows four friends who go searching for the body of a missing kid, hoping to claim a reward. Starring Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, and Jerry O'Connell, the film has an impressive cast that has great chemistry together and gives incredibly good performances. The characters are also exceptionally well-written; feeling especially real and relatable. And, the costumes and set designs have a remarkably authentic 1950s Americana look that has a nostalgic quality to it. Additionally, the soundtrack is extraordinarily well-done; capturing the playful, carefree youth of the characters. A wonderful film about friendship and the loss of innocence, Stand By Me is a timeless classic.
