August Seria's Movie Ratings - Rotten Tomatoes

Movie Ratings and Reviews

Texas Chainsaw

Sometimes you'll see a remake that you will want to watch even though you know it will kinda suck but you'll just be there for the gore and the mediocre story. Unfortunately though, Texas Chainsaw is NOT it. And I don't mean that in a good way. This movie made me say, "What in the actual fuck?". It's so utterly cliched and predictable and unrealistic and bland that it makes me feel embarrassed for Leatherface for being in this abomination of a film. It's like a bad direct to DVD movie made to waste your time and money.

Eden Lake
Eden Lake(2008)

This film may be the most frustrating thing I've ever seen since France's "Them". It's entertaining in a bad way. It makes me wanna construct some chemical formula and create a vortex from my screen to the film and b*tchslap each and every character here--and maybe shove my kitchen knife in some of them, too. It's like the world's most clueless set of characters met (by some unexpected trick of fate) and put them in a predicament that kept on twisting and twisting towards worse because of their sheer irrationality and idiocy. If I have to give this film points for being a film, I'll give it quite a good score for its disturbing nature and entertainment value. But as I said, it is very very frustrating and it only left me depressed after watching it so I'll give it one star out of five.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Not as ground breaking as it should have been but still, you cannot deny the great performances and the warm atmosphere of the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has in store.

Drive Angry
Drive Angry(2011)

A good concept down the drain. The acting was cheesy, the script was cheesy, the action was cheesy, the effects was a wee bit cheesy, too. All in all, Drive Angry is just a big pizza full of cheese and nothing more. Nicholas Cage was just there to suck everything that's good, while Amber Heard was just there to be pretty.


We all saw of this before . . . Man got robbed of his identity then goes on a rampage to get it back, with a bigger picture behind the incident, friends who betrays them and some who dies. BUT. If you think you know that already then you'll be surprised to see that what you're expecting may not actually be the outcome. Unknown may not be as predictable as you're thinking it is.

Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy

Ridiculously funny and with iconic characters, Anchorman is one of the greatest of Ferrell's comedy.


Tension filled, great characterization with new and very creative scares. 1408 was a surprisingly good psychological thriller and another superb adaptation from Stephen King's work.

Right at Your Door

Right at your door was a realistic view in an apocalyptic scenario, made even more real with the unknown actors' great performances.

Twelve Monkeys (12 Monkeys)

Though Bruce Willis' character was quite annoying, there's no denying that 12 Monkeys lived up to its good premise. The plot twists (especially on the end) were very surprising, ad Brad Pitt creates a very effective antagonist.


Carrie was a perfect blend of supernatural horror and bleak creepy, further ascended by its talented cast and accompanied by one of the most iconic horror scene. A deserving classic.


With the trio's fine performance, Nolan's Insomnia was smart and thrilling, with enough twists and turns not to put you into sleep.

The Machinist

Christian Bale in his most controversial role. The Machinist swirled like a washing machine, putting us deeper and deeper into the eye of insanity in this dark psychological thriller. However, as satisfyingly rugged the machine had operated, it had been overheated a little bit and reaches a certain point where you want to push the 'off' button.


Spider has Ralph Fiennes' stelar performance ready to stick us viewers in it's web, but as the time flies, it has become all shallow bites and not strong enough poison for the final kill.


Though undeniably tensed and thrilling, Ils didn't get away from two things that I hate about horror films: First, the dumb/annoying protagonists. Secondly, were the unexplained superpowers of the antagonists, which (in this particular film) were super elusiveness, levitation, can pass through walls and invisibility.

The Chaser (Chugyeogja)

A bloody and rampant thriller that also grasped the themes of politics and--if not--the system of the Korean law-enforcement. The Chaser was honest and (as I've noticed in ever Korean film) pure, clean and detailedly shot and if its aesthetics hadn't grabbed you yet, then the unforgiving story will. It's slow in a great thrilling sense, that dropped the bomb with grace and horrid surprise. If you're a fan of crime thriller, you'll definitely love this.


Beautifully calm yet tragic, this poignant and honest drama about the life of a genius painter was intensely inspirational and saddening at the same time. Yolande Moreau captured Seraphine Louis with her superb performance, and the Cold War setting was enthralling and gave the film further depth.

I rymden finns inga kńnslor (Simple Simon)

A romantic comedy overflowing with wit, humor, and charm that you'll forget about the flaws and just enjoy the great performances of each unique characters. One of the best Romcom I've seen.

Coming Soon
Coming Soon(2008)

The scares were uneven, some are good while some are ridiculously funny. The story was quite focused on the main theme and it's kinda getting sluggish in the middle but I guess, someone screaming in front of your face at random times supposed to kept the watchers hooked but that's such a banal approach and begins to be redundant towards the end.

The Divide
The Divide(2012)

Every thing's going well until they fed me up with --maybe--one of the most frustrating ending I've seen. The premise was intriguing, but the script was uneven and half-cooked, the drama doesn't make that much impact and there's no iconic scene whatsoever but I was willing to set the flaws aside for a good conclusion but I've been greatly disappointed.

Dawn of the Dead

Bloody, violent, and surprisingly superb remake of a classic. The characters were all well written, and the script didn't forget each and everyone of them. Compared to Battle: Los Angeles in which there are a lot of characters resulting to a chaotic shamble, Dawn of the Dawn let the characters rise in their own spot light that you'll not remember them just as the guy 1, guy 2, guy 3 because as I said, they were superbly scripted, acted, and strayed from one another. If the characterizations didn't amaze you, be sure to expect a lot of smart moves--especially the clever deaths and twists--and a vast chaos of blood seeking zombies that are unlike any other. They can run!

Kung Pow! Enter the Fist

I withdrew after 30 seconds they started making jokes, that's how bad it was. The joke's are all too corny, all too stupid, and all too pathetic to even comprehend the reason behind the making of this anomaly of a film. It was so bad in every level that I'm embarrassed for the actors who'd shown their faces in this mirthless, pathetic, and abominable "spoof" that doesn't even pass as a spoof because a spoof supposed to re-create a film and turn it into a a funny one but this--I call this rape. This film just raped and disgraced the Kung-fu genre not spoofed it.

Tokyo Sonata (Tokyo Sonata)

A perfect comedy and family drama all at the same time that does not tell a very intriguing story, but also specifically portrays Japan with realism.

The Iron Giant

There's nothing left to say that Rotten Tomatoes hadn't said for this. Another thing though: wow.

Mother (Madeo)

A relentless thriller that unfolds the pieces of the puzzle ingeniously with a very surprising conclusion. Mother isn't just a thriller made to forget but with it's enthralling imagery, powerful performances, dark comedy, and heart racing events one after the other, this thriller just made it to one of the best ones of the decade.

The Theatre Bizarre

Grotesque, dark, creepy and (living up to its title) very bizarre indeed. Some stories felt vapid, yes, while some were interesting and bizarre enough to satisfy every horror fan as myself. The gores were over-the-top and very painful to watch that it felt uncomfortably good. The Theater Bizarre has made me stand to my seat and scream for an encore.

Nanny McPhee Returns

Surprisingly . . . It was very good. It was smart, the characters are all good and well acted and the family fun was very fresh and enchanting. And Another, in the cast, it should be Katy Brand, not Katy Perry so Rotten Tomatoes should change that.


The premise was not that new, but I think I'm only saying this because I already watch Crash before this, even though this was made earlier than Crash. But I'm sure there are other Crash like movies like this even before this film was made. And like other film that has this kind of story, it's very inventive and the characters are truly interesting. The film gives a lot of black comedy which makes 11:14 quite unique. It's funny, it's intriguing and I appreciated the retro setting because it truly worked. Didn't disappoint, yet didn't do better than I was expecting.


Though the connections are uneven and the daring roles felt deliberate, Babel clung to its theme perfectly, with stand-out performances from the foreign actors, and an intriguing drama.

Jack and Jill

I actually didn't found it that bad. Of course it's predictable and cliche but I saw those parts where they held themselves back, stopped themselves from making very unfunny jokes to the highest level. While most of the jokes were unfunny, and some of those who were, were not funny as hell, there was still some spark in it (Though dying). Also, why was Al Pacino the worst supporting actor?? I mean, who made that conclusion?? Al Pacino, was . . . well, Al Pacino. He was good actually.

Donnie Darko
Donnie Darko(2001)

Dark, and sometimes funny. Donnie Darko was smartly done as a whole just like Jake Gyllenhaal's performance as the titular character. With all the fresh things going on as the running time moves, it was ended with a great, yet mystifying, conclusion.

Laid to Rest
Laid to Rest(2009)

Lacked sense as well as the brains of it's characters. If they'd given even just one character common sense, then everything shouldn't have happened. The protagonist was annoying as hell and her entourage was as dumb as hell as well. It has a lot of potential though they've thrown it into the pit of stupidity.

The Secret Garden

Sweet and enchanting tale inside and outside its deeper theme. The Secret Garden brings you to a magical world of secrets and an adventure towards revival of one's soul.

The Mist
The Mist(2007)

Great characterization, a fresh approach in the human psychology of survival, and a mind-blowing conclusion turned The Mist into a horrifying tale that never ceased to entertain. The thrills and mysteries never stopped, and so was the unpredictable deaths from our unique entourage of survivors trapped inside the grocery store. The Mist is one of the best Horror Films I've seen.

Unholy Women
Unholy Women(2006)

It tried to be scary, it failed a bit, but when it tried to be funny, it sure made me laugh. It's original compared to other Japanese horror flicks and fused with a large dose of dark humor then you'll get an interesting, intriguing and funny horror flick.

One Hour Photo

Robin Williams did the performance of his life as the super creepy yet lovable Uncle Sy in this very thrilling film about obsession.

I Spit On Your Grave

Satisfying gore and blood, with above average acting, transcends its ridiculous premise.

Art of the Devil 1

Dull and failed to scare me even in the littlest way. Art of the Devil failed in making a good antagonist and even too thrill-less to even take it seriously. My eyes was half-open not on scares but because of boredom.

The Omen
The Omen(1976)

Could've been more enjoyable if I haven't watched the remake or even gave some spice to it to be a little more original that the classic. Either way, I enjoyed it and watched it like I have no idea what to expect (but I do) and it turns out creepier, intriguing, and a damn original horror flick.

The Omen
The Omen(2006)

The Omen remake didn't live up to the full force creepy, and original than the classic but it sure did modernize most of the part where our modern eyes satisfies with up to date effects and styles to be entertaining.

Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2`

Packed a lot more sense that the first one, gave the annoying protagonist, in the first, a medicine she deserves, and gives even more iconic kills. Laid to Rest 2 is one of those sequel that transcends the first movie, with more blood and more entertainment value.


I get the dark humor, and the conspiracy on the acting, but hell if they'd just made the antagonist a little more sensical then they might have been on the right track. Victor Crowley is all too powerful and inescapable without the rationalization how he does those things which made me think that Hatchet also has to be in the genre of fantasy.

The Exorcist
The Exorcist(1973)

Scary, creepy, atmospheric and intriguing at the same time make The Exorcist a classic.


It's what I want a psychological thriller would be. It's very puzzling, it's interesting, it's unique, but maybe a lot of people would feel betrayed to leave out any rationality behind the story. But overall I think it's very good.

Confessions (Kokuhaku)

Mindblowing piece of japanese masterpiece. Confessions sure brought the very intriguing premise in a very satisfying tale of terror. With twists and turns that seems never ending, it's great acting especially with their young actors, Confessions truly captivated me, and most importantly, terrified me with a powerful conclusion.

The Prestige
The Prestige(2006)

What I truly love about The Prestige is the actor's accent. I don't know but I love their accent above all because it's rare to see american actors fake an accent that truly works. Anyways, this film is a satisfying tale of Obsession and Deceit with the unexpected conclusion.

Mother's Day
Mother's Day(2012)

Could have been a lot better if their characters aren't stupid. The great fresh slasher techniques are there. It's smart, it's sick, yet it's hard to feel empathy for the protagonists if you know they deserve it.


A retro twist in a thrilling action that never goes old with all the right stuff. Great characterization, dialogue, cinematography, and musical score took this one into a very satisfying crime thriller.

Crazy, Stupid, Love.

Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve, take note, this is how you make a smart romantic comedy with an all star cast. Crazy, Stupid, Love maybe a little untruthful on some occasions but the stars' charm covered it. It was funny, it was sweet, it was very good.

The Other Guys

The Other Guys breeds a perfect comical chemistry of Ferell and Wahlberg in a very effective, action packed, laugh-out-loud comedy that is oh so rare. The gags are smart, fresh and perfectly delivered that it hits almost all the right spots. It was so funny that I was sweating. And yes, I'm serious.

Due Date
Due Date(2010)

Though Robert Downey Jr. was, again, charming in his role, Zac was, yet again, in his idiotic, annoying self again. Due Date wasn't that funny. It's too cliched and predictable. It's a comedy for those who doesn't get tired of watching an idiot ruined a normal man's life and turned it into an impossibly coincidental mayhem one after the other. Zac's turning out to be one of my most hated actor for choosing such annoying roles.

The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games strayed far from that usual young adult novel turned film cliches where everything was set to please every fan's hearts. It was truly a magnificent view of Collin's bestselling novel, full of life and even more livelier with great acting from all cast. Haters who are Battle Royale fans will find this too different to compare. It's great in its own ways and should get a chance.

The Help
The Help(2011)

Superbly acted, and tackles the concept of racism with grace and laughs. I truly loved it from start to finish, especially the actors who were perfect for their roles.

Battle Royale II

The story is as bad as the actors. Battle Royale two's greatest mistake is it's amateur cast and its goal to bring back the emotions from the first film. It's thrilless (<--- if ever there's a word.) and failed in filling those insane amount of plot holes that it sinks too fast, and too miserably.


Hugo is an adventure for both kids and adults that grabs the audiences emotionally with its dreamlike sets, marvelous acting, and that depth gratitude for old cinema.

Puss in Boots

Well I can see that Dreamworks still have those creative juices they should've used for Shrek 3 and 4. Anyways, Puss in Boots in as action packed animation for both children and adults that we will not soon forget. The characters are all charming and its wit just can't be denied. Thumbs up for Dreamworks.


A realistic, fast-paced thrill ride that transcends beyond the familiar plot with it's marvelous cast ensemble and that not so old documentary style technique. Chronicle may be one of the best super hero film in history.

Resident Evil: Afterlife

Resident Evil turned from good, to average, to bad, to really bad. This Resident Evil might have used all the action movie cliches in the box that it's getting unintentionally funny. The acting is bad, and the characters are all too predictable and cliche. This looks like a bad mockbuster for the real Resident Evil, only with better CGI.

The Artist
The Artist(2011)

And I thought I'm too young for this . . . This a brave attempt in looking back to where films are made, and it tuned out to be one of the best of 2011. The Artist is funny, touching, and witty. Along with the "silent film" technique, this will soon be a CLASSIC.


Adrien Brody put up a solid performance. Though some parts are low in thrills, it has a satisfying conclusion. It's another one of those good "What if that happens to me?" films.

Burning Bright

What the hell?? Brianna Evigan trapped with her autistic brother inside a house with a Bengal Tiger? WHo the F*CK, wrote this? <-- that's what I thought before watching this then I was completely mind f*cked to see such a GREAT HORROR flick. This just goes to show that no matter how ridiculous your plot is, if you got the right stuff then it will be good. Evigan's character may be the smartest character in the history of HORROR.

Wake Wood
Wake Wood(2009)

It has the dark atmosphere and some fine performances but through it all, I cannot truly deny the confusion in some scenes and the lack of scares.

100 Feet
100 Feet(2008)

Besides the fact that it is truly a scary movie, and holds one of the most brutal deaths I've seen. I guess what really makes this a great horror is Famke Janssen's stellar performance as the ex-convict battered wife.

Series 7: The Contenders

I think one of the things that this film can boast is its realism. It was well-acted so my question is: Where the heck does these actors went now? It felt very real, it is not lacking in dark humor . . . and just, good.

A Cat in Paris

Simple as it looks, it's still undeniably funny and beautifully animated with new tricks that kept me entertained from the first minute to the last.

The Skin I Live In

Wow. The twist turned my head upside-down and I was completely mindf*cked. The scores are brilliantly chosen to convey the emotions of the scenes, and good performances from all cast. The skin I live in will truly be one of the best of 2011.

The Innkeepers

Sara Paxton and Kelly McGillis were incredible. The tension and scares were ridiculous that it works, but it kinda slowed on the middle part but still. The story is not that new, yes, but it's really new in other aspects.

Dream Home
Dream Home(2010)

It's sick, it's brutal it's what every slasher fan wants and more.

Ded na si Lolo

Very funny, yet very touching. I especially love Roderick Paulate in this, he's perfect for the part. Ded na si Lolo takes us into a overview of common Filipino superstitions, and takes them into a funny and sad roller coaster ride. Another great Filipino Indi.


The humor works, the drama works, the casts are charming and with a lesson that all of us can relate too (Not giving up.), I'd say 50/50 is a solid film of 2011.

Seconds Apart

Another contribution from Afterdark films to the list of good horror films. The creepy atmosphere and the good story works. It has some good new ideas and great tension. And aside from some, it was greatly acted especially by the twins and the detective. And yeah, It's really creepy, and new.

Dogtooth (Kynodontas)

It's very disturbing... and odd. That's the best way to describe the film. Also, it is very realistic and dark, in a professional manner. I do say that I'm a bit shocked too, to see such film and I do appreciate the courage to make Dogtooth.

[Rec] 2
[Rec] 2(2010)

One of those rare sequels that doesn't disappoint. It still has the scary atmosphere, the effective scare tactics, and fresh turns just like the first. If you've enjoyed the first I'm pretty sure this one wouldn't be a major let down.

Spirited Away

Spirited Away creates a breathtaking realm of surreal imagination and euphoric imagery. The music creates a vortex of emotions, and the story itself is an epic adventure. I have to punish myself for not watching this a long time ago, because I have always seen this a few years back on video rentals yet I always myself skipping this one. So my conclusion is, THIS IS THE BEST ANIMATED FILM I'VE EVER SEEN SO FAR.

Midnight in Paris

Midnight in Paris is absolutely beautiful. It's a fresh fuse of comedy, culture, and history that truly got me. The characters are charming, and beautifully acted. Even in a not so new plot I'm very pleased to see a very thought of comedy, and just, I'm overwhelmed to see such film.

Hostel: Part III

It steps down on good gores, but steps up with a good story and cool surprises. I could say that I enjoyed this film, in a different way as the first two did. If compared to other direct to DVD, this one truly strays from the typical bad horror unlike the other good horror films who've been demoralized by its direct to DVD sequels. However, there's another thing actually. The ending--I don't know what the heck just happened there--it's a little confusing but maybe I'm just the stupidest man on earth.


The star-studded casts truly brought their A-game in making a not so new story in a very realistic realm. Contagion is realistic, dramatic, and new, with a tinge of social issues. I liked the fact that they've brought out the humanity of the characters and did not made them stiff and just there unlike what I'm expecting. Good.

Fright Night
Fright Night(2011)

Fright Night is a perfect fuse of comedy and horror and more to offer. The first thing I noticed is the funny dialogue. It was well acted, especially by Collin Farell and stores a few good surprises and good scares.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

I'm glad that they didn't focus too much on the "taking over" part and took a different route in bringing the characters more depth. Caesar is beautifully created, and acted thanks to Mr. Andy Serkis and all in all, Rise of the Planet of the apes is clever, fresh, unforgettable and emotionally gripping.

Ice Age
Ice Age(2002)

The animation is brilliant. However, the characters are not new, Manny is the social antagonistic, Shrek, and Sid is just the talkative sidekick-Donkey. Some laughs work, yet some I've already seen in Pixars. The only thing that makes Ice Age good is the fact that it has almost all the right stuff to be Pixar worthy (Besides Cars and its predecessor of course).

The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)

Twisted and sick. This has satisfied my expectations of a very graphic and brutal film. Yes, the black and white effect is so-so. And some of the scenes are just a level up attempt to make us squirm more violently than the first, but yeah. It's really odd, yet the film does not level-up to the controversy, I think. All in all, the Human Centipede 2 is just a more dark, more violent and more disgusting copy of the first. And before I forget! IT IS 100% medically inaccurate. That is unless, his victims have high tolerance in getting bashed in the head.

Stake Land
Stake Land(2011)

Brilliant. And I thought it will be another Blade like film about vampire apocalypse with cool action sequences. But then it is not and it is good. Stake Land is well acted, beautifully written and emotionally attaching. I could even feel this being a best selling novel. This film is another underrated vampire film that anyone should appreciate and holy crap I demand for a sequel! Which is something I know would not happen and makes me sad.

Four Lions
Four Lions(2010)

I found myself laughing from start to finish. Morris has put a very delicate topic into a funny, smart and very dark film. And not only it is funny but it also has heart. The conclusion truly got my emotions and it was great.

Saw 3D
Saw 3D(2010)

I do love the Saw series and I appreciate how they turn out to be either very smart or very dumb. But what the heck are they thinking in Saw VII? The movie disappoints me in every level. Over the top traps that truly strays from the simple but cool ones in the past films. The actors got to be the worst ensemble in the history of the franchise. Also, again, the traps are just violent and wrong. The story is as ridiculous as a flying hippo eating a banana while playing a clarinet at the same time. Saw had truly put itself into shame this time.

The Hangover Part II

Not as bad as I was expecting. The Hangover II is The Hangover I but less. Less laughs, less cleverness, less in almost everything. But through it all it still have the good mystery that keeps me waiting for the climax - which doesn't disappoint me somehow. Another thing. Is Zac's character Allen that irritating since the first? Anyways my conclusion is, do not watch this if you've watched the original recently because YOU WILL BE QUITE DISAPPOINTED so remember to forget the original before you traverse this movie.

The Good, the Bad, and the Weird

Just a fun western inspired korean movie that almost all the time hit the right notes. With a charming ensemble of cast and a truly believable world, The good, the bad, and the weird will simply tantalize you with visual flares and action.

Bakjwi (Thirst)

The thing that I like about Korean films is because they're so fresh and clever. Just like Thirst, a vampire movie for adult, as I assume packs good thrills and blood amidst an interesting story and a satisfying conclusion.

The Secret World of Arrietty

Beautifully drawn that beguiles your eyes towards the world of the borrowers. Arriety is simply a breath of fresh air - so serene and so heart warming. This is an animated film that needs to viewed by everyone.


Melancholia packs a superb acting coming from Kirsten Dunst, and nevertheless gives a very palpable drama about emotions in the midst of destruction. I love the way they focused on the drama rather than the apocalyptic premise. All in all, the film has depth, visual carousel and drama to make Melancholia a unique film.


Truly honest, believably acted, and poignant drama about finding yourself in the midst of the people around you. A truly marvelous film for the open minded.

The Countess
The Countess(2011)

Despite a very interesting story. The Countess is an averagely acted film that seems a little fake and bland. It does teaches some history but still, not as good as I thought it would be.


Good animation but a very simple story.

Death Bell (Gosa)

It is something new to the eye. Gosa lacks scares and wit. Though it's truly cool as a whole but it's barely a horror movie.

Attack the Block

While it is pretty good. Action, horror, wit and style, but darn it the characters are annoying, cliche, uninteresting and dumb. One of the best parts is watching them die.

The Hole
The Hole(2012)

Creative, spooky and most of the parts, believable. I thought this is going to be another corny attempt on a fun adventure thrill ride for youngsters though I'm surprised to see that it is for everyone and it does deliver the fun and adventure in style and scares.

Friday the 13th

A modernized copy of old Friday the Thirteen films.

The Final Destination

Worst in the series. The Final Destination works in the humor but the thrills is predictable, the deaths are beyond ridiculous and the story is flawed.

Couples Retreat

Cliche, unfunny, predictable and bland.

Crank 2: High Voltage

What the heck is going on?! I was expecting a high action fast paced film but I don't know, I just didn't get most of the parts which is ridiculous. Don't get me wrong I did get what I was expecting but holy crap, Really?

All About Steve

Sandra Bullock in her most stupid role.

Life in a Day

It's inspiring to see people in all over the world is doing in a day. Cool and sometimes, hypnotizing.

H2: Halloween II

Wrong gore wrong violence. Nightmarish though, but most of the parts are just ridiculous. Since when did Michael Myers became a super human?

Grown Ups
Grown Ups(2010)

Good cast, bad jokes.


Has a unique super hero story. Kick-ass has action, a great story, a good action sequences, interesting characters and cleverness.

Clash of the Titans

Dazzling visuals but lacks the action and clever story to top or even equal the classic. Also the 3D part is just a scam to make a larger profit because I can't see the 3Dness in it.

The Bounty Hunter

Just bad. Charming though but, I don't know what they're thinking, the creators must have not been paying attention in watching rom coms.

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day squandered the talent of it's cast in cliches and a bad story. It's just like watching all rom coms merged together in one movie

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

This could have been great, with the visuals and a charming cast. but I just can't put a finger on it, there is something missing. Percy Jackson seems to be raw on most angles.

The Tooth Fairy

The rock is really cooking up with the charm. His film The Tooth Fairy seems to be uncooked with cliche'd gags, predictable plot, cliche'd characters and awful dialogs.

The Spy Next Door

Predictable, overused gags, and bad acting is what makes The Spy Next door a bad movie.

The Book of Eli

The action is there and so is the unpredictable (or maybe it's just me)ending that satisfies some movie goers or rather think it's ridiculous. Though what makes this film a little less is a branched out story, at all it's just a man in a mission and nothing else.

Alice in Wonderland

A visual treat, and I know the kids will love this. But I guess that's the only thing there is. Alice in Wonderland is predictable, a little corny in the humor, and lacks a smart story.


Not the best historical chinese film out there. But just like the ones that is, Shaolin has the great action sequences and a great, though a little predictable, story. I think what this movie lacks is a little use of good humor.

The Tree of Life

Unique and surreal. A dazzling visual ride. Though not for everybody, you don't know art if you can't appreciate the beauty and poetry The Tree Of Life gives.

Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever

Not as bad as I thought it would. The casts are uneven, few stands out while the others sink. It has the dark humor to keep the it flowing but it seems that is the only fun thing in the film as a whole. Cabin fever lacks horror and fun to be a good horror movie. But still, a so-so attempt. Average.

Shaolin Soccer

A very great comedy that has all the right stuff to be considered one of the best.

Horrible Bosses

Very funny and perfectly casted. The jokes are funny and delivered in the best timing. I'll be hoping for a sequel, but I hope they take their time not to follow the "The Hangover's" mistake.

Let the Right One In

Original, sweet, and dark. This maybe the best vampire film I've seen.

Pet Sematary
Pet Sematary(1989)

I don't know if it's just me being adapted in the 21st century horror or the film is rather low. Pet Sematary has good scares and a great story but it has very confusing and some, very ridiculous scenes.

Infection (Kansen)

The scares are very effective and the atmosphere is very eerie and uncomfortable, just the way horror film suppose to be. The story itself is quite unique but quite confusing at the same time. The only thing that I don't like is converging the physical scare into some ghastly scares that is unnecessary or doesn't belong for this kind of film. The ending is also quite confusing but as a whole it is eye coveringly good.

Gurotesuku (Grotesque)

Two words: Holy Sh!t. A very brutal and graphic film about torture. It has no plot whatsoever it's just an hour and a half of sick torture. It's sicker than any other torture porn film but the story is just - disappointing. I got to give it to them though, for making me squirm and vomit in disgust.

The Descent 2

It is undeniably weaker than the first but it still has that claustrophobic feeling and some good scares.

Scream 4
Scream 4(2011)

A great installment in a classic horror film. Scream 4 delivers clever kills and tried its best to stray away from the cliches. It's not scary but still it's a good horror film.

Dead Snow (D°d sn°)

It is fun gore-ride and ridiculously funny (Though I'm not sure if that's intentional). Dead snow is a unique zombie movie, just don't take it seriously.

Dying Breed
Dying Breed(2009)

Nothing new about people going in a secluded place where there's no phone signal and unknowingly to the characters, there lives a serial murderer and the fun begins! However, Dying Breed delivers something a little more of the cliches and thats just how far it goes.

In Their Sleep (Dans ton sommeil)

The story itself is good but there are rather unrelated scenes that has nothing or little to do with the main story. It is tedious and very confusing at times.

The Collector

The Collector could have been good but it was covered by unbelievable traps and some, unnecessary gore that has been put there only to satisfy gore fans. The kills are clever though but as far as the story is concern, it is quiet good and disappointing at the same time.

Soul Surfer
Soul Surfer(2011)

A very predictable film about surviving and keeping a positive outlook in life. There is a great story here that truly inspires, but I just couldn't focus, it's freaking Anna Sophia Robb!

Summer Wars (Sama Wozu)

Fun, adventure and romantic comedy. But, a little corny at times.

Dante's Inferno

A Perfect blending of gore, violence and sex. This is not for kids so don't let your boys watch this just because they saw the awesome cover, trust me. XD

The Loved Ones

Twisted, and well acted. This is not your ordinary torture porn.


Very suspenseful. A very unique contribution for the list great zombie films.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Witty and funny, with spectacular effects and action sequences. Scott Pilgrim has a fresh idea and very lovable characters.


Smartly scripted, greatly acted, horror tactics that quite works and disturbingly fun.

Mary and Max
Mary and Max(2009)

An Animation with the most interesting characters in the world. Mary and max is beautifully made and the story is heartwarming and tragic.

Cannibal Holocaust

If someone had told me about this film before i watched it with my grandma then I wouldn't be haunted right now. This vomit fest visual rapist, just fvcked the sh*t out of the respect of my grandma for me. It's so fvcked up that my grandma and I just petrifies in the sofa, I don't know what to do if I will stop it or continue this awkward charade. The characters in this movie are the most sexually arroused individuals that I've ever seen and rapes us just by watching this disturbing pupil explode inducing abomination.

The Gravedancers

The first scares are very good and cleverly thought of but when it comes on the middle part I'm like "okay, still good. Some parts are ridiculous though." However, in the end part I was like. "What the fvck is going on?" It's like the Primer meets Tales from the Crypt. The scares became copied from classics and I don't know where in the corners of the abyss of hell's assh0l3 did the ending came from. i mean a giant (*spoiler alert) ghastly head came floating towards the protagonist. Who could've known? It just demoralized my visual capabilities. It is smart but it doesn't work on me.

Everything Must Go

Perfectly casted and sincerely acted by the charming Will Ferrel. The dialogue is great, leaves pathos for the viewer and most of the time, funny.

Something Borrowed

The first thirty minutes was painfully choreographed and the rest? forgettable, typical rom com cliches. I gotta give it to them though, for resisting the cliche ending I was hoping for.


The characters are greatly casted, acted and unforgettable and the gags are genuinely funny and smart. Bridesmaids truly is an example of a great comedy film.

Kung Fu Panda 2

It is undeniably weaker than the first, but the laughs are still there, visuals and action that makes it still worthy.

The Last Exorcism

It is a little bit scary and unlike other found footage films, this one is probably one of the best. Acting is believable, thrills are really clever, and the plot is interestingly good until the end.

Three Idiots
Three Idiots(2009)

A very great film. It is funny and inspiring with enough creativity and honesty to be worthy as the highest grossing film in India.


The effects are superb but ilm is rather forgettable. Thor has a great hero and a great villain but it lacks any memorable scene to make it a classic super-hero movie.

You Again
You Again(2010)

It was undeniably predictable and ridiculous but it's still has it's fun and worthy for a chic flick. Jamie Lee Curtis and Betty White is as charming as ever.

Ringu (Ring)
Ringu (Ring)(1998)

It fails to be very scary to just "okay" scary. It has the atmosphere and the story is quite interesting but it is a wee bit tedious and it saves the best for last which is satisfying but still, slow.

A Serbian Film

It fails to be a grotesque masterpiece and turns into a gory chaos that has the most unnecessary sex scenes. It is quite disturbing and I appreciate that but it's just a mess as a whole.

APT. (9:56)
APT. (9:56)(2006)

It is undeniably scary and creepy but that is what asian horror is about but APT has a wide perspective and a quite satisfying story that strays from other asian horrors.

Just Go with It

It is not as bad as you thought it would, It still has laughs and still has crickets. However, it is painfully predictable but Adam Sandler is doing what he does best and together with the charm of Jennifer Aniston I would say their chemistry quite gives the spark.

Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre (R.W.W.M.)

It has the suspense, and the gory fun ride but this movie has the most stupid or rather annoying characters that just sits there and die. This could have been great, really and I truly loved the conclusion because the survivor is the only one who deserves to live because the other characters are just bad.

Final Destination 5

Great acting, creative deaths, great twist, and very suspenseful. This is one of the best 3D this year.

The Last Circus

Grotesque, fun, and well acted. The whole story is phenomenal because it teaches us a great lesson about love.

Charlie St. Cloud

I agree with R.T. Zac Efron does gave a great performance here but the predictability and lazy writing made this movie bad.

Winnie the Pooh

Funny, Creative, and Silly in a good way. This is one of those rare 21st century 2D animation that has all the stuff you'll need for a great kiddie film.

X-Men: First Class

The action was good, the characters were all interesting and the whole plot was unpredictably fun.

Seuseung-ui eunhye (To Sir With Love) (Bloody Reunion)

Not that really intriguing, and scary. Bloody Reunion wasted it's chance to be a great slasher with it's good premise. The ending was disappointing and lazy.


The first part of the movie was great but until the second half, it lost it's creativity and fast paced horror. The ending part made me WTF.

Easy A
Easy A(2010)

I never thought that this would be good. It's very funny and smart.

How to Train Your Dragon

It's spectacular visuals, it's story, it's creativity , and interesting characters drives this animation to the Oscars.

The King's Speech

The acting was superb, the story was very well narrated and just the whole movie is great.

Inside (└ l'intÚrieur)

A really creative, horrifying and nail biting gorefest.

The House of the Devil

Though a bit slow, it shows creativity, horror, and art.


The premise is not that fresh, the pacing is so slow, the deaths are ridiculous and so is the enigmatic ending.

The Tournament

Action movie cliches her and there but the action sequences are great and so are the characters. With this cool premise it could have been a lot better.

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

Funny, creative and ridiculously horrifying.


With it's stunning views and creativity. It is a good movie.


Claustrophobic and smartly written.


Though the start is kinda slow, Monsters interesting premise and strong pathos will get you.


Though really not for the CGI dependent viewer who watches film only through the eyes. This movie creates an excellent puzzle for the movie fans, that will keep you guessing until the end of the exam.

The Midnight Meat Train

A very interesting premise that satisfies fans with new scares, above average acting, and an ending that either makes or breaks your expectations. A very satisfying thriller.

Source Code
Source Code(2011)

Very smart and creative. I sure hope that Source Code will get an award.

The Host
The Host(2007)

The Host is a monster movie with heart, laughs, and wit that makes it stand out above other monster films.

Battle Royale

A brutal japanese masterpiece.

The Wrestler
The Wrestler(2008)

I could write all the good things about this movie (Mickey's acting, honest plot, moving drama, etc) and waste precious time, or I could just say that this movie is perfect. HANDS DOWN!

Tropic Thunder

Gory and funny at the same time. Tropic Thunder delivers unique characters, new laughs and a lot of action.

The Lovely Bones

Though the concept is new with surreal effects The Lovely Bones never did create the that great emotion that it should have made. Also I noticed it`s bad background music that never really helps and some characters are not casted well.

By˘soku 5 senchimŕtoru (5 Centimeters per Second) (A Chain of Short Stories about Their Distance)

A very dramatic poem about love. It's very heart warming however, those who loves romance may not be too happy with it's "cutting to the good part" premise.

The Switch
The Switch(2010)

Even though it has a predictable plot. The Switch really stands out with its charming characters & fun romantic comedy humor.

Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster

A chinese masterpiece. Breathtaking action sequences and very touching drama.


Banal concept, characters are new but lacks background and does things that a normal person would not do in that certain situation, cliched scare tactics and some parts predictable. But, in a time where horror films are mostly bad, Husk brings us a little something new on the table.


And I thought watching a dude in a coffin for 1 and a half minutes is boring. I was simply blown away by this film of endless claustrophobia that will keep you on your seat thinking "What would happen next?". A very good acting performance for Ryan Reynolds, this really proved that he is versatile and not just for charm. Bravo!


Realistic and honest drama that greatly portrays realistic problems of life that we are too busy to see. Poetry brings us real drama topped with solid acting that really gives us something so captivating yet so sad.


Fun, smart, and beautifully animated film that takes you on a surreal roller coaster ride and spit on those 3D juvenile animated films of America. It is not for kids obviously.

Battle: Los Angeles

Battle: Los Angeles is one of those films in which they only cared for making money. They didn't experiment at all, and just gives the people what they wanted to see. A lot of military movie cliches and also an example of the "Too many hands destroys the soup" philosophy in which there are so many bland characters that I don't even regret seeing them die. Also the frolicking characters made it confusing for me to follow the predictable plot.


For no reason, a killer tire becomes animated and has telekinetic powers. For no reason,The plot has left me with thousands of question,that has bigger holes than the moon's crater and for no reason, I kind'a like this film. Witty, unique and fun, just don't take it seriously.
