Tomb Raider
Tomb Raider (2018)
27 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I was pleasantly surprised with this movie. Being a mega Tomb Raider fan for the past 15 years now, I was worried how this movie would live up to the character of Lara Croft and her type of adventures (Alicia Vikander was an odd casting choice in my eyes).
However, after seeing this movie, I can proudly say it holds the Tomb Raider spirit and effectively portrays the new Lara Croft. Vikander's small intricacies in her performance really sold me on her Lara. The story was interesting and full of tense moments, and the visuals were top notch. Many of the action scenes were genuinely gripping. I was a bit disappointed with the big reveal of Queen Himiko's powers towards the end, it didn't have the oomph I was hoping for.
Overall, a fun, thrilling, well-acted video game movie that lives up to the franchise it comes from.

Phoenix Forgotten
12 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Hopefully Phoenix Forgotten garners some more attention and talk than it seems to be getting so far, as it turned out to be quite the tense and captivating movie. It doesn't do anything new or shocking, but it has believable acting, a good mystery, and a seriously effective final act with glorious visuals that left me holding my breath and gripping my seat. I recommend going to see this if you enjoy found footage or alien conspiracy movies.

Get Out
Get Out (2017)
14 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Smart, captivating, relentlessly unsettling, and even quite funny, Get Out is a breath of fresh air from start to finish. It isn't perfect, there are a few tiny nitpicks to be had with the movie (especially on some of the goofier scare scenes in the beginning half of the movie), but it still manages to be a thrilling experience that had me and my theater roaring with applause at several moments. I'm very glad it's getting the praise and hype that it is, because at the end of the day, this a seriously solid and entertaining movie.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
15 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Being a fan of the Resident Evil movie series, I knew what to expect with this movie, and it sure didn't disappoint. These movies are not about cinematic grace or excellence; they are about pure fun and adrenaline. You should come into the theater ready for that, and put your pretentious desires at the door.
This is undeniably a fun time. Awesome performance from Milla Jovovich as usual, awe-inspiring action sequences, and non-stop adrenaline fun. There was even some emotional and thematic heft within the final act.
While the frenetic and fast-paced editing was an eye-sore at the beginning, I became used to it over time and it didn't bother me so much. Some writing was a bit wonky at times as well.
However, with as much genuine fun and thrills I had with this movie, I will hold it in high regard as the sixth movie in a guilty pleasure series.

The Bye Bye Man
15 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Considering the bad reviews, a friend and I went seeing this for fun and some laughs. Somehow, we both ended up being genuinely invested, scared, and excited by this movie.
Don't get me wrong, this movie was not perfect and had a few seriously cheesy moments (and the CGI on the dog monster was distractingly poor). Some of the actors were rather stale as well. However, with an excellent and involving performance from Douglas Smith, great suspense, fun mind-screwiness, some quite scary moments, and a truly freaky myth at its core, The Bye Bye Man really surprised me.
