Rating History

Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Don't be Afraid of the Dark is kinda of a cool film but its weighed down by its ridiculous nature but that can't be helped when dealing with such a premise ultimately it drags its feet with settle moments of whispering voices and things that truly do stir in the night. I've seen far worse when it comes to horror its worth checking out as a casual watch on netflix but beyond that its simply forgettable.

Godsend
Godsend (2003)
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Godsend's premise is somewhat interesting but its execution is far to predictable and mundane ultimately its your standard piece of escapism and not much more then that. The only real noteworthy scene in the film is when Robert De Niro goes crazy in the church at the end of the film granted its not terrible but its not good either I would say its a tolerable film but its not really worth investing time into it.

Angels & Demons

½

Angels and Demons is a fairly decent film with a few stand out moments that appear through out its running length its unfortunate that I caught the twist ending on television before I ever saw the film in its entirety so the ending didn't have any bite or shock to it because I had already seen it.Tom Hanks gives a fairly average performance as Robert Langdon and the musical score helps build up the critical scenes in the film I believe I most likely prefer The Da Vinci Code over Angels and Demons but either film is phenomenal but both are solid pieces of entertainment in the end one could do worse when it comes to movies.

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises was a solid film that had its moments like every film I've seen this year..it was far to long for my taste specially when it ends a 1:00 in the morning..The opening scene with Bane stealing the doctor away from the airplane was one of the high points of the film.I wasn't to crazy about Catwoman granted there was nothing wrong with her character it just seemed like she existed for the sole purpose of being Bruce Wanye's love interest and in the end there wasn't much else to the her.The best thing about this film is Tom Hardy as Bane..he stole every scene he was in with ease conveying every emotion through his voice.The ending with Batman "dying" felt a little forced but the last scenes with Blake and Alfred made up for it they were quite excellent.I like the Dark Knight Rises but its not in the dark knight's league..I would most likely take it over batman begins if I had to choose.

The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-man had its moments where it was quite good but Sam Raimi's 2002 Spider-man ultimately is the better film in the end.Andrew Garfield is a pretty solid spider-man and is the best thing about the film but I do prefer Tobey Maguire over Garfield as Spider-Man.When it comes to Aunt May there is no question that Rosemary Harris is a far better Aunt May then Sally Field!The battle sequences are far superior in Sam Raimi's films then in the Amazing Spider-man there was nothing really awe inspiring about them (other then a decent scene where Peter wraps the Lizard up in a web at the school but compare that to every other action scene in the three previous Spider-man films yeah it pales in comparison no doubt)Gwen Stacy's father dies at the end of the film and honestly I could care a less about it I was not moved by the scene also Emma Stone is a decent Gwen Stacy but I don't think of much of her as an actress.Rhys Ifans was solid as the Lizard but nothing really to noteworthy about his performance it was pretty average..there are about four or five noteworthy scenes in the film Peter saving the boy in the burning car hanging from the bridge..Peter toying with Car thief and battles a cop and leaves..in the finale of the film Peter is injured and about to jump to the top of the Oscorp Building as he is running this great piece of music starts playing that really makes the scene and Uncle Ben's narration at the end was kinda of nice as well..the final shot of Spiderman sweeping through the skies of New York was nicely done..I enjoyed parts of the film..it gave people more Spider-Man which is always a good thing but I would of taken Raimi's Spiderman 4 over this film any day if I could I would give it a 68% but instead its a 70%.
