Giovanni Musso's Movie Ratings - Rotten Tomatoes

Movie Ratings and Reviews

Need For Speed

A fun but stupid B-movie. When I first saw the previews for this I thought it would be filled with corny dialogue, thinly-sketched characters, and an asinine plot and look I was right but what I didn't expect is to actually enjoy myself. Need for Speed is probably the best video game adaptation which doesn't say much but what distinguishes it as better is simply the actors. While Aaron Paul does a fine job playing it straight it's Michael Keaton who steals the show as an over the top cartoon mastermind. Kid Cudi doesn't give a bad performance for a rapper turned actor and actually is decently funny. Sure the movie is messy, dumb, and full of cliches but if you turn off your brain you'll get a kick out of need for speed.


Megamind is a solidly entertaining kids movie, with some decent adult humor. One thing I must complain about though is the god-awful generic soundtrack.

Shark Tale
Shark Tale(2004)

With ugly animation and unfunny jokes, Shark Tale takes a talent voice cast and creates unlikable characters, a failed attempt at a satire, and a confused story.


While stylish and full of Zack Snyder's typical visual treats, Watchmen's overlong running time is only punctuated by glacial pacing. It isn't good when the opening credits are the best part of the movie and that's the case we have here.

You're Next
You're Next(2013)

A kick-ass lead performance by Sharni Vinson cannot save this uneven thriller.

Labor Day
Labor Day(2014)

The actors are all great in their roles and Reitman creates his most besutiful film (visually) to date; but Labor Day suffers from an abundance of cliches and gooey sentiment.

American Hustle

American Hustle that I went between loving it and being bored out of my mind. The first twenty to thirty minutes are really slow but it slowing began picking up, then it lost me again, and the grabbed my attention for the finale. David O. Russell is a talented filmmaker but here it feels like he's trying to make a Scorsese movie and it comes off as a bit like an ego trip at times. The cast is great and Louis C.K. in particular is hysterical but overall American Hustle is completely over-hyped and while it isn't a bad movie you should just watch The Wolf of Wall Street.

Project X
Project X(2012)

Project X is a fun time, unless you are over the age of 30. Then you might want to rent "The Artist", but I'm 15 so screw it.

The Breakfast Club

Maybe I've grown sick of people reminding me how good it is or maybe it just isn't that great but The Breakfast Club is a movie with some great moments and some utterly horrible moments. The film often comes across as a shallow, empty film that tries so hard to get teenagers to connect with it but also comes across as a sweet and well-meaning film. I can't give it a bad review but I can't give it a glowing review either. The incredibly funny scenes are undermined by the unintentionally funny scenes (the dancing, the glass breaking, and the whistling) which are both gimmicky and cringe-worthy. Overall The Breakfast Club is a decent movie but an incredibly overrated movie.

The Purge: Anarchy

The Purge was a movie with a dumb premise that tricked everyone into seeing it, The Purge: Anarchy attempts to do the same and to say this movie is an improvement over the first one is an understatement. It's everything that middle schoolers wanted to see in the first film, however anyone with a shred of intelligence sees how dumb it is. It's like an idiot that regurgitates new he read online in attempt to pass off as an intellectual, this movie is dumb but it refuses to admit it. It takes itself way too seriously, it thinks that you care about the characters when you don't and THERE'S NO LOGIC WHATSOEVER. My complaints aside this is a turn your brain off and enjoy it movie but it's flaws outweigh the good things about it.

The Purge
The Purge(2013)

The trailers show you an intriguing; albeit dumb; premise and Ethan Hawke, but "what could have been?" is what best describes this movie. The Purge fails to use it's interesting idea and decides to become a cliched slasher movie that falls apart within the first ten minutes.

Pitch Black
Pitch Black(2000)

It's fast pace and solid directing can't make up for the unrealistic CGI and lame twist.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a franchise that I didn't grow up with as a kid; I don't know why but I just never got the appeal; so I'm going into this film cold turkey. The latest installment has both good and bad things clustered in it that it ends up somewhere in the middle. The best part of the movie is the turtles. They're charming, funny, and genuinely cool. The problem? You don't really feel like you got to know them because the movie focuses on Megan Fox and a woefully mis-used Will Arnett (aside from a great fedora joke). Neither are particularly interesting characters and you don't care for when they're in danger. Fox's acting is atrocious as always, when she tries to emote she comes across as more stoic than Groot who is a tree. The film looks really cool visually but half the shots are dutch tilts and it gets to be distracting at times. The ending of the movie is ripped straight out of The Amazing Spider-Man I'm not even kidding, SAME EXACT THING. This movie is perfect for kids, they won't expect anything other than turtles, fighting, pizza, and... borderline pornographic shots of Megan Fox? but those who want a bit more will be disappointed er well... what did you expect?

World War Z
World War Z(2013)

World War Z is short on scares, but it's fast paced action and Brad Pitt badassery make it worth watching.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

Kenneth Branagh's steady hand helps Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit overcome a slow start and make it into a more than satisfying political-thriller.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Okay, Guardians of the Galaxy is the best movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. From the first scene you feel this movie is special, the first five minutes are reminiscent of a young Steven Spielberg but you know it is James Gunn's movie just because he dominates it with his trademark dark humor and odd visuals. I'm not going to go one by one and rave about how great each performance is because every performance is stellar. Chris Pratt and Bradley Cooper in particular are the stand outs. The special effects are spectacular, the movie is hysterically funny, and never boring.

Wish I Was Here

Garden State is my favorite movie of all-time and I'm not afraid to admit it, it came to me at the right time. So when I heard Zach Braff wanted make another movie like it I was immediatley on board for anything he was willing to do. The result: A decent movie that never approaches the delirious heights of Garden State. Everything about Wish I Was Here is like Garden State only to a lesser degree: the dramatic moments don't hit as hard, the tone is a bit more uneven, and even the soundtrack isn't as good. But the main problem I had with Wish I Was Here is that it felt more like This is 30 then a spiritual sequel to Garden State. Some plot-lines go nowhere, especially the wives and the brothers. The thing that keeps it together is just the ambition of it all. Zach Braff creates a visually great movie and the movie's sentiment never feels too syrupy. The humor is great and it's the most Jewish film since The Coen brothers "A Serious Man".

Alice in Wonderland

It's titular character is bland and at times so is the film, but Tim Burton's take on Alice is good, sometimes great... but sometimes insanely stupid.

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

A reminder of how great teen comedies can be, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is a funny, beautifully shot, and clever addition to the rom-com genre while the actual playlist is nearly better than the film.


Not as terrible as it's made out to be. Transcendence is more of a disappointing film then a bad film, because it goes in a different direction than you wanted it to go. But overall it's a solid science-fiction thriller with fine cinematography and decent acting.

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang

Instead of a review I'm just going to say it has Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer (who plays a gay detective nonetheless) and it's written and directed by Shane Black. You're welcome.


Luc Besson's highly illogical but thoroughly entertaining Lucy is a bizarre ride of thrills until stumbling into it's outlandish third act.

This is 40
This is 40(2012)

The film is too long and often aimless but brings a fresh sense of maturity to the comedy genre while also bringing the laughs.

Funny People
Funny People(2009)

Apatow's third film is overly ambitious and overlong but too charming to resit

Knocked Up
Knocked Up(2007)

One of my favorite comedy movies, Knocked Up is an example of when a great script and incredible comedic performers come together in perfect harmony.

The 40 Year Old Virgin

Apatow's directorial debut is full of clever dialogue, raunchy humor, and unexpected sincerity.


Melissa McCarthy is a talented comedienne and it was time that we get to see how talented she is as a writer. Unfortunately, she isn't because Tammy is one of worst comedies I've ever seen. The film doesn't have one comedic moment that hits it's mark, it's just a complete misfire. McCarthy and her director husband assemble a talented ensemble who are given nothing to do and as for the stars, McCarthy and Sarandon have no comedic chemistry. To describe Tammy in one word is "uncomfortable", the film never is as funny as it wants to be and watching it struggle is just hard to watch. Melissa McCarthy has officially typecast herself as an obnoxious slob and is completely incapable of being the star of a film. This movie is a disaster, do not watch it.

The Five-Year Engagement

The pacing slows down in the middle but The Five-Year Engagement is a charismatic, fsmart, and mature while also being raunchy and hilarious.

Fright Night
Fright Night(2011)

An entertaining remake that mixes both scares and laughs, but suffers from poor special effects and weak dialogue.


David Ayer's follow-up to the brilliant End of Watch is a mixed bag and an unfortunately a guilty pleasure at best. Sabotage has a tense gritty environment and some pretty cool action scenes but also suffers from an uneven cast (Schwarzenegger and Manganiello are great but Worthington and whoever played the druggie-chick are awful) and Skips Woods's script is pretty weak. Overall, this movie is an okay, turn your brain off and enjoy it action movie that cold have been much better but isn't as bad as people have made it out to be.

That's My Boy

This movie is retarded, I understand that. This may be one of the dumbest comedies ever made and I don't know why, but I find it really funny. This is the last funny Adam Sandler movie (Hotel Transylvania is Sony) and it is the ultimate guilty pleasure. I know it's terrible and believe me, I will never defend it or say it's a good movie, but it's pretty funny.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

Matt Reeves manages to create a sequel that I would to compare to Empire Strikes Back which is possibly the greatest sequel ever made. I compare the two because of the similarities of a change in directors, a darker tone, and the improvement of the first one. I thought Rise of the Planet of the Apes was great film, but Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is just better in every single way. Matt Reeves crafts this dark, engaging mood to the film and Andy Serkis just deserves a nomination for Best Actor.

The Family
The Family(2013)

It has some inspired moments and the performances are great, but for the most part The Family cannot decide whether it wants to be a gangster flick or a satire of one, and for the most part fails on both parts. The result is a slow-paced, poorly written attempt at a mob comedy that is what I would call tonally retarded (sorry tonally challenged)

The Outsiders

The cinematography is great, all of the actors (with the exception of Macchio) are eminently likable and are great in the roles, and the rumble scene is one of my favorite fight scenes in film. The negatives would have to be that it slows down a lot when they get to the church and Ralph Macchio's pre-pubescent inclusion in the gang feels out of place.

Superman Returns

Alright fanboys (Jeremy), I'm prepared for the onslaught of insults you're about to throw at me.

If you were to ask me what is a movie that doesn't deserve the hate it receives? Superman Returns is the movie I would say. Bryan Singer adds a brooding darkness to the hero and crafts a fantastic new perspective of Superman while also paying respect to Donner's original films (even going as far as to adding Marlon Brando and John Williams's original score). Brandon Routh is great in the role of Superman but is completely overshadowed by Kevin Spacey's amazing portrayal of Lex Luthor. It's mislabeled as a big budget action flick when really it's a character study with some great special effects. I know this movie is considered awful by most but I suggest watching it from a different perspective. Also, no one can say that plane crash scene or the bullet in eye aren't anything less than fantastic.

True Romance
True Romance(1993)

A film buff's wet dream. Tony Scott's frantic direction mixing with Tarantino's typical writing make for an amazing film.

Planet Terror (Grindhouse Presents: Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror)

Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror is the far superior half to the Grindhouse films because it is everything Death Proof isn't. It's brisk pacing, camp, and overall sense of fun make this half a reminder of what a great filmmaker Robert Rodriguez is.

Death Proof
Death Proof(2007)

Death Proof is Tarantino at his worst, it isn't awful but the film is so full of itself it comes off as a parody of Tarantino movies. It comes across as a self-parody of excess. The typically great dialogue is extended to the point where the film becomes boring and the foot fetish shots are nearly comedic. The performances are great as always and the visual style is really cool but Death Proof is definitely the weaker half of the Grindhouse movies.

From Dusk Till Dawn

The shift to the vampire plot is a bit jarring, but From Dusk Till Dawn is a great popcorn movie mixed with Robert Rodriguez's typical style

Reservoir Dogs

Our first introduction to Tarantino is arguably his best. The cast is great, the script is legendary, and the movie itself is one of the best.

Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction(1994)

I don't need to write much here. It's great, watch it.

This Is the End

Holy shit...this was hilarious. This Is the End had a bar set so high by me, I thought it could never live up to it's expectations. Well, it did. This Is the End is not only the best comedy of the year, it's the best movie of the year.

Moonrise Kingdom

The only thing I don't like about this movie is how much teenage white girls adore it and make it out to be a counterpart to Mean Girls or The Notebook. That being said, I love this movie.

Fantastic Mr. Fox

An excellent return to form, The Fantastic Mr. Fox is cussing fantastic.

The Darjeeling Limited

I watched this at 2 in the morning when I was in a negative mood so a second watch is probably necessary. However, from what I remember The Darjeeling Limited feels a tad self-indulgent and disappointing.

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Bursting with original ideas and charm, The Life Aquatic is another quirky Anderson masterpiece.

The Royal Tenenbaums

Anderson keeps his own style while mixing dark comedy and family issues with wonderful results.


My favorite Wes Anderson movie. Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman give great performances, the quotability of the movie is a 10, and the ending is near perfect.

Escape Plan
Escape Plan(2013)

Escape Plan may be too much of an 80's throwback, but it's marvelously matched stars and it's gritty atmosphere make it big, cheesy, fun.

Punch-Drunk Love

In the 90's, Adam Sandler made stupid but really funny comedies. Now, Adam Sandler mostly makes stupid and unfunny comedies. I say mostly because of Punch-Drunk Love. This is Adam Sandler at arguably his best, his portrayal of an awkward, mentally distraught man reaches new levels for the actor whenever his rage is let loose. Most people who like Sandler's movies will be bored by this but those who are sick of seeing Grown Ups 2 on HBO should be reminded of his talent.

Office Space
Office Space(1999)

Hey readers, whaaaat's happening? Office Space failed at the box office in 1999 but easily became one of the biggest cult comedies of all-time. My question is "is it as funny as everyone says it is?" the answer is "uh yeaaaaahhhh". Mike Judge has a way with satire where it has widespread appeal to anyone watching. Office Space is an l comedic masterpiece with instantly quotable lines about TPS reports, Superman III, O-faces, Michael Bolton, and Swingline staplers

The Fighter
The Fighter(2010)

David O. Russell's The Fighter is a dark and gritty entry to the boxing genre that stands out due to its gripping characters and the portrayals of them.

Terminator Salvation

The action is dull, the color palette inspired Instagram filters, and Sam Worthington is Sam Worthington. Fuck this movie.

The Heat
The Heat(2013)

It's decently funny. The jokes about Boston are the best part.

Boogie Nights

The best movie about porn ever. I don't think anyone can or will top it.

Transformers: Age of Extinction

It works as comedy but not much else. Also, killing off the best part of the movie in the first twenty minutes is a great idea for all future filmmakers to take from this movie.

Bad Boys II
Bad Boys II(2003)

The dialogue is still as funny as the first film, but Bad Boys II is a little too long.


The special effects are top notch, but Transformers suffers from uninteresting human characters, sophomoric humor and a poor camerawork.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

NOTE TO MICHAEL BAY: Watch Pacific Rim to learn how to properly frame your shots and action sequences.

It's better than Revenge of the Fallen, but Dark of the Moon fails to improve on the faults of previous movies.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

This ugly, loud, Michael Bay-fest has even less character development and more obnoxious (not to mention racist) humor than its predecessor.

Jersey Boys
Jersey Boys(2014)

Clint Eastwood's directing style may not have been the best choice and it shows whenever the movie decides to slow down but the musical numbers and the mob element make it worth watching.

A Serious Man

A Serious Man is a movie that intrigued me from when I first heard about it. Some call it the Coen brothers best and some say it's a complete bore. One thing that everyone agreed on is that is it is the single most Jewish film ever made. With my mother's side having the surname Goldberg I decided to watch it and not only did I enjoy it but loved it. A Serious Man is darkly hilarious, splendidly acted, and sadistically brilliant.

Gangs of New York

The only problem is the length and that is about it. Martin Scorsese in my opinion has never made anything below average or even average and Gangs of New York is a testament to how great of a filmmaker he is. Daniel Day-Lewis is fantastic, Leo is great, and I didn't actually hate Cameron Diaz either. The set design is probably the best part because it engrosses you in this world that Scorsese has marvelously recaptured. Gangs of New York is one of his best.


With another powerhouse performance from Liam Neeson and a claustrophobic atmosphere, Non-Stop is a surprisingly well made thriller; despite it being completely unbelievable with style to spare.

Jurassic Park III

In attempt to distance itself from the previous films by an attempt at a horror film, Jurassic Park III is a bland and generic outing that suffers from action overkill and an abundance of uninteresting characters who are there for the sole purpose of being eaten.

The Lost World - Jurassic Park

I rarely drastically change a score this much. Although it never reaches the dizzying heights of it's predecessor, The Lost World is a darker, thoroughly entertaining sequel, with more Jeff Goldblum, and some kick-ass action sequences. (Oh yeah, that scene when Goldblum's daughter uses gymnastics to kick a velociraptor is still stupid.

Jurassic Park

Featuring some of the best special effects in history, genuine moments or terror crafted by Spielberg, and a Jeff Goldblumy Jeff Goldblum. Jurassic Park is jaw-droppingly great.


Despite a surprisingly sincere performance from Sandler, there's not much else positive to say about Blended. The jokes range from mean-spirited to non-nonsensical, the romance is non-existent, and the children (one in particular that looks and sounds like Gollum before he found The Ring) are grating.

22 Jump Street

It's the same movie, but at least it knows that. 22 Jump Street is the definition of meta-humor, it is so self-depricating and so clever you can't resist to laugh.

Cuban Fury
Cuban Fury(2014)

Cuban Fury is as light as a feather and coasts on the charm of its leads (especially O'Dowd) but the film lacks originality, three-dimensional characters, and noticably jokes.

The Double
The Double(2014)

A dark, confident homage to Terry Gilliam, The Double is a clever showcase for Jesse Eisenberg's acting and Richard Ayoade's directing.

The Fault In Our Stars

At times a bit too gimmicky, but TFIOS is a rare young adult novel adaptation that actually manages to be interesting, faithful, and well-acted.

I, Robot
I, Robot(2004)

Relying on special effects and Will Smith's charm rather than a well-written script, I, Robot is filled with cliches and product placement but nothing new to the genre.


Although it's slow and rarely reaches the comedic heights it should. Admission is a charming and well-acted movie whose faults are almost buried underneath Paul Rudd and Tina Fey's likability. Almost.

Public Enemies

Depp and Bale are game, but the film has a "what could have been" feel throughout.


Hook is a very mixed bag, its production values, performances, and energetic pacing are all great. However, a bloated running time of 144 minutes (Damn, kids with ADHD will never finish this) and overcooked sentiment almost ruin the film. That being said, you can still enjoy Hook because for the most part the good outweighs the bad, but this is probably because my nostalgia boner for this movie is incredibly erect.

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow

Edge of Tomorrow is not only a brilliant showcase for Tom Cruise's best performance in years, but an inventive science fiction film with some of the most frightening extra-terrestrials in recent memory.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

I honestly loved this movie, Bryan Singer really just delivered great action-sequences, sly humor, character drama in his great return to the franchise that is now unofficially titled "Fuck You, Brett Ratner".

The Wolverine

It isn't the great Wolverine movie that fans are begging for, but it's a solid watch.

X-Men Origins - Wolverine

The dull, boring screenplay and god-awful special effects are an insult to Bryan Singer's great films.

X-Men: The Last Stand

This one however, is a mess. Laughable dialogue doesn't help its soulless action and pure idiocy. However, the special effects are fine enough and if you're looking for a movie to put on as background noise this should be for you.

X-Men: First Class

Okay, Matthew Vaughn is a great director. No one can deny that, this movie is him coming off of his best (Kick-Ass) and he somehow manages to flawlessly transition from low-budget kids without powers to the X-Men. I love, love, love, love this movie.

X2: X-Men United

It doesn't improve or fall short of its predecessor, X2 is all that you should expect from a Bryan Singer X-Men movie.


A great superhero movie and a great film in general, the beginning of the rise of great comic book movies.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

As an Indiana Jones movie this is a 0.5 out of 5, this is a middle finger to fans of the series. As a movie itself, I'll give it another half-a-point just because there are entertaining parts to it, but when that is all there is to say about an INDIANA JONES movie... there's really nothing worth watching here.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

The funniest of the series and a remarkable improvement when it comes to sidekicks, The Last Crusade is a great adventure film and is truly the LAST crusade for Indy.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Temple of Doom brings a fresh breath of darkness into the series making it a worthy sequel to Raiders... despite Spielberg's miscast future wife annoying the piss of me whenever she's on screen.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

The beautiful definition of a blockbuster, Raiders is a thrilling adventure picture with classic written all over it.

A Million Ways to Die in the West

It's no Blazing Saddles, but A Million Ways to Die in the West is still an enjoyable comedy that brings a consistent amount of chuckles and sheep-based puns.


A beautiful, beautiful masterpiece of destruction.


Gareth Edwards's first feature shows his attention to character depth and and unique visuals, but suffers from a glacier-like pace.

Love Actually

A handful of it's talented actors feel underused (Martin Freeman's story should have been longer) but Love Actually is a goopy pile of feel-good sentiment that contains more than a few laughs.

Knight & Day
Knight & Day(2010)

A few good action scenes do not excuse a poorly written script.


Breathtakingly hilarious and visually inventive reinforce that Seth Rogen is a comedic genius without any boundaries and the Zac Efron has extended himself from a Disney star.

The Squid and the Whale

A painfully truthful comedy-drama about divorce that is masterfully handled by writer-director Noah Baumbach.


It doesn't hold a candle to the original, but despite its flaws Carrie is at least entertaining.

So I Married an Axe Murderer

Myers charms his way through this hilarious black comedy, with a surprising underlying heart.

Bad Words
Bad Words(2014)

It's nothing groundbreaking, but Bad Words shows Jason Bateman at one of his funniest performances.

Delivery Man
Delivery Man(2013)

A toned down Vince Vaughn sleeps his way through this syrupy dramedy.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Full of fantastic performances and beautiful cinematography, Amazing Spider-Man 2 is another welcome addition to the Marvel canon.

The Hudsucker Proxy

A bizarre misfire, The Hudsucker Proxy was a movie that I wanted to like a lot because I like the Coen Brothers, I like Tim Robbins, and I like hula hoops, but overall this movie is just trying to be quirky for the sake of being quirky.

Blades of Glory

Mediocre, Blades of Glory has some funny moments but none worth remembering.

The World's End

Brilliantly cast, intelligently written, and great cinematography. The World's End is a fantastic finale to the unofficial trilogy, even if the last five minutes are a bit ludicrous.


Shallow and overbearingly homoerotic, but 300 succeeds in creating a mindless fun time.

That Awkward Moment

Slow moving and somewhat depressing, That Awkward Moment has moments of genuine humor and genuine heart but they are just moments.

Cowboys & Aliens

Is it the next Godfather? No. Is it undeniably stupid? Yes. But is it a big silly summer tent-pole that screams "awesome"? Yeah, pretty much.

21 Jump Street

Consistently hilarious, 21 Jump Street is possibly the funniest high school movie ever.


With Affleck's steady hand and nail biting suspense, Argo is a testament to how far Affleck has come since Daredevil.

The Expendables 2

Adding humor to mix, E2 becomes improvement over the first one by simply adding to its cast and increasing the violence.

Bad Teacher
Bad Teacher(2011)

Bad Teacher never reaches the comedic heights it promises, but it isn't awful.


Peter Berg's frantic direction prevents it from maximizes its full potential or find a consistent tone, Hancock is a less than satisfying watch.

The Raven
The Raven(2012)

Cusack gives up tring about half-way through, that should tell you about the quality of the film.


Arguably this single most inspirational film created, Rocky is a classic.

Natural Born Killers

Darkly hilarious and visually stimulating, Oliver Stone uses an excellent cast and cynical yet satirical script (by Quentin Tarantino) to create a film straight out of hell.

Donnie Brasco

One of the most unappreciated gangster flicks, Donnie Brasco is a gripping drama with excellent performances by Depp and Pacino.

Lady in the Water

Boring, self-indulgent garbage.

Batman Returns

Often maligned as an overly-ambitious Tim Burton mess, Batman Returns is actually equal to its predecessor if not the superior.


It's more about the Joker than Batman, but Michael Keaton surprises as a fantastic Batman and Nicholson does...well, you know.

Jackie Brown
Jackie Brown(1997)

It may be overlong, but Jackie Brown is another excellent crime-drama that benefits from an almost overwhelming amount of on and off-screen talent.

The Pursuit of Happyness

Will Smith is great and Jaden is surprisingly not terrible, but overall The Pursuit of Happyness is too sentimental which makes the whole film comes across as pretentious Oscar bait.


The hauntingly grotesque Prometheus is an excellent return to Ridley Scott's sci-fi roots with excellent special effects, performances, and direction.


Featuring; in my opinion; the greatest twist in film history, Memento is our introduction to the future brilliance of Christopher Nolan in his first masterpiece.

Marvel's The Avengers

Joss Whedon does his job in bringing together everyone for one big, goofy, awesome, pile of fun.

Thor: The Dark World

Smarter, more action-packed, and funnier than the first one, but not quite as refined.


Thor benefits from a clever script, excellent CGI, and a surprising change for director Kenneth Branagh.

Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)

The funniest Marvel movie yet, Iron Man 3 is a movie that is equally as divisive as it is entertaining. You could hate or love it, as for me... I love it, [SPOILERS] I even love the whole Mandarin's an actor reveal. Sue me.

Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2(2010)

There may be too many story arcs, but Iron Man 2 compensates with a duo of excellent villains, fantastic action, and another brilliant Robert Downey Jr. performances.

Iron Man
Iron Man(2008)

Just... so fucking cool.

Captain America: The First Avenger

Nothing special, but still a decently entertaining introduction to Captain America with an awesome Hugo Weaving performance.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

A major improvement of it's predecessor, The Winter Soldier is a sleek addition to the Marvel catalog with a dip into the political-thriller genre.

The Island
The Island(2005)

Originality and character development take a back seat to action and special effects, however The Island never fails to be entertaining.

Tower Heist
Tower Heist(2011)

Tower Heist can be dull in parts, but it's brainlessly enjoyable for the most part.


Another example of James Cameron making a superior sequel, Aliens is without a doubt an improvement by adding explosive action and gritty performances.

The Watch
The Watch(2012)

A guilty pleasure.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

An improvement over the first one, T2 is another fantastic action film from James Cameron.

Chasing Amy
Chasing Amy(1997)

A mature entry from Kevin Smith, Chasing Amy puts a nice twist on the traditional romantic comedy that flawlessly mixes raunchy comedy with more mature themes.

Grandma's Boy

Funny if you're a stoner, if not you'll find it just another misguided attempt at comedy from Happy Madison with a couple of laughs.

The Dark Knight

Beautiful cinematography, excellent action sequences, and a dark brooding atmosphere, The Dark Knight is the perfect superhero movie.


Cohen tries too hard to recreate the levels of bad taste hilarity from Borat! and instead just makes a film in bad taste.

Sherlock Holmes

Although Robert Downey Jr. overshadows the movie itself, Sherlock Holmes is a totally bad-ass update of the famous detective with equal style and substance.

Back to the Future

This movie is one giant "fuck yeah!".

Alien Resurrection

Unnecessary and formulaic, Alien: Resurrection attempts to resurrect the franchise from Alien3 but instead buries the franchise even further.

American Psycho

American Psycho is hilarious while still being a great horror film.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Heartbreakingly hilarious and consistently re-watchable, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is one of the funniest rom-coms to date.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

Eternal Sunshine is a fascinating tale of a bittersweet love.

Garden State
Garden State(2004)

My favorite film of all-time, Garden State may come off as fake to most people but to me it's near perfect. Zach Braff gives a great performance for a guy who just wants to feel again, Natalie Portman brings a fresh twist to the manic pixie dream girl, and the script masterfully diverts between comedy and drama. Oh yeah, and the soundtrack is hella rad.

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Goofy and pun-filled. The Austin Powers series is the last of Mike Myers that is funny, and boy is it.

Good Will Hunting

Brilliantly written and powerfully acted, Good Will Hunting is a superb debut for future stars Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.


It isn't a casual watch, but it is a thought -provoking, inventive, and beautifully filmed with some of the best action sequences that I've seen.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Another masterpiece, Close Encounters is Spielberg's brilliant first foray into science fiction with fantastic special effects (still hold up), a fine performance from Richard Dreyfuss, and scenes that remain as pop-culture staples.


Terrifying but still warm and summery at the same time, Jaws is the unofficial first summer blockbuster and the first masterpiece from Steven Spielberg.

Ride Along
Ride Along(2014)

Stranding Kevin Hart in a movie where all he does is scream, Ride Along severely lacks logic, originality, a coherent plot, and most importantly comedy. Ice Cube barely registers an emotion, Hart fails to do more than frantic mugging, and the supporting cast all go to waste. The lazily and loosely written script continuously borrows gags and action sequences from better films. Ride Along is the epitome of bad comedies.


Forgettable, Godzilla tries to re-capture the spirit of the original, but fails due to an abundance of bad CGI, cliches, and a surprisingly boring monster.


A movie that cruises on Liam Neeson's charm, Taken is a sleek, exciting, and badass action flick.

Clash of the Titans

Headache inducing 3D distracts from it's trashy acting and bland script.

The Grey
The Grey(2012)

The epitome of Liam Neeson badassery, The Grey is a brilliant story of survival, anxiety, and wolves getting punched in the face.

The Guilt Trip

The Guilt Trip is sweet, light-hearted, and warm...but it's also sappy and forgettable.

King Kong
King Kong(2005)

Excellent performances and top-notch special effects allow Peter Jackson's King Kong to replace the original in my book.

Best in Show
Best in Show(2000)

A mildly amusing comedy that focuses on being quirky rather than being funny.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

The definition of awesome, Star Wars is more than just a movie.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

While the special effects are excellent, Episode III fails to improve upon its predecessors mistakes.

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

A minor improvement, Attack of the Clones has a 40 minutes of excellent action sequence but the rest of it is about as interesting as a tuna sandwich.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

An awful, humorless attempt at reviving a fantastic franchise. Episode I is a failures on every level.

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3(2007)

Too many villains make Spider-Man 3 jumbled, but its still another fun superhero adventure. (I know you hate this, but come on. We all have our guilty pleasures)

This Means War

It isn't very bright, but This Means War is surprisingly goofy fun worthy of guilty pleasure status.

Scary Movie 2

Scary Movie 2 doesn't match its predecessor when it comes to comedy, but it surpasses it in raunch and pure idiocy.

The Campaign
The Campaign(2012)

It may lack brains, but The Campaign manages to make fine points about corruption and still make you laugh consistently.

The Dark Knight Rises

TDKR is a worthy conclusion to the epic trilogy, but doesn't live up to it's predecessor.

Django Unchained

Possibly Tarantino's smartest and funniest masterpiece yet.


Caden, you're wrong. This movie sucks.

Rock of Ages
Rock of Ages(2012)

Rock of Ages seems to balance it's awful attempts at humor with it's awful music, leaving it a as another forgettable big-budget musical that no one wanted. Tom Cruise was cool in the 12 seconds that he was in it.

Real Steel
Real Steel(2011)

It's heart is in the right place, but Real Steel is a derivative hodgepodge of Rocky meets Transformers.

Van Helsing
Van Helsing(2004)

A frantic, soulless mess that even a Huge Jackedman can save.

Scream 4
Scream 4(2011)

A disappointing conclusion to the franchise, Scre4m feels lazier than it's predecessors because not only does it fail to improve upon the other sequels wrongdoings but it magnifies them to an unbearable degree.

Scream 3
Scream 3(2000)

It doesn't improve upon 2's flaws, but Scream 3 manages to entertain fans hungry for another two hours of Ghostface.

Scream 2
Scream 2(1997)

The humor is still sharp, but Scream 2 feels a major comedown from its predecessor.


A brilliant mix of gore, scares, and satire. Scream is possibly the greatest horror film of all-time.

The Waterboy
The Waterboy(1998)

Classic Sandler is a masterpiece of lowbrow toilet humor.


What should have been another middling rehash is actually a smarter than the average action thriller with style to spare.

Ender's Game
Ender's Game(2013)

Although it's well-acted, Ender's Game stays a little too true to the book and even after they pull out the twist, you still feel like the whole movie was about a kid going to school.

The Room
The Room(2003)

Quite possibly the best thing to come out of cinema since The Godfather

30 Minutes or Less

The underrated 30 Minutes or Less gets the job done to make you laugh well into the first 2 minutes.

The Social Network

Brilliantly scripted by Aaron Sorkin, flawlessly directed by David Fincher, and an excellent ensemble on screen are only the beginning of praise for a film that provides audiences with sharp dialogue, engaging drama, and constant intrigue.

Seven Pounds
Seven Pounds(2008)

Smith tries to bring something to the table but can't save Seven Pounds from its convoluted and depressing script.

The Da Vinci Code

Dull, pretentious, and extremely overlong. The Da Vinci Code is a fine substitute for Nyquil.

The Great Gatsby

Although the visuals undermine the story, Luhrmann's Gatsby update does more than entertain.

2 Guns
2 Guns(2013)

2 Guns benefits from Wahlberg and Washington's easy going chemistry and a general sense of fun, but it's a bit on the forgettable side.

The Lovely Bones

Beautifully filmed but tonally jarring, Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones is a disappointing foray into mystery that fails to live up to his previous efforts.

The LEGO Movie

Ambitious to a fault, The Lego Movie is clever, nostalgic, and a heart-warming start to 2014's animated features.

Identity Thief

Identity Thief has a fully committed Jason Bateman, but Identity Thief suffers from clashing tones, too many antagonists, and a surprisingly unfunny Melissa McCarthy.

The Change-Up

Bateman and Reynolds are as likable as ever and work well together, but the Change-Up suffers from an overused plot, unsympathetic characters, and a script that chooses raunchiness over wit at every chance.

Green Lantern

Awful CGI, a boring villain, and lack of depth are all crimes that Green Lantern commits and more


Although it's beautifully animated, Brave falls victim of a dull script and a problematic second half.

The Lone Ranger

With a wonky sense of humor and over the top violence, The Lone Ranger is something we'll look back at in 10 years as a cult classic.

The Sitter
The Sitter(2011)

While The Sitter does have a promising start, it stumbles leaving suburbia which is followed by unfocused jokes and cringe-worthy attempts at dramatic depths. Sam Rockwell is funny in it, but it's not enough.


Overrated and beyond unoriginal, Avatar succumbs to putting special effects over three-dimensional characters and plot.


Homefront is an average action movie with enough thrills , but is occasionally bogged down by slack pacing and a lack of people getting kicked in the face.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Thanks to a smart script and tense direction, Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a major improvement over Tim Burton's remake with visual style to spare.

The Talented Mr. Ripley

It sags in the middle, but The Talented Mr. Ripley is an excellent mix of social class envy and psychological thrills featuring bravura performances from Jude Law and Matt Damon and topped off with beautiful filmmaking.

Last Vegas
Last Vegas(2013)

Last Vegas is a bearable piece of fluff, but it often feels confused, disjointed, and never is truly as funny as it should be.

Grudge Match
Grudge Match(2013)

De Niro and Stallone create some enjoyable banter, but overall Grudge Match is a forgettable sports movie with weak boxing scenes and feels somewhat depressing.


Beautifully shot, acted, and directed, Her sees the return of Spike Jonze at his best film to date.

Shallow Hal
Shallow Hal(2001)

I honestly don't see how Black is ashamed about this movie. Shallow Hal is one of his best movies and it's funnier than anything on the last Tenacious D album. [At the time of this review the last album by Tenacious D was "Rize of the Fenix".


An uncomfortable attempt at black comedy by Black and Stiller is a misfire on every level.

Dinner for Schmucks

Never as funny as it should be, but still provides enough screwball laughs to make it watchable.

Now You See Me

It may be brainless summer fluff , but Now You See Me does its job to entertain and it succeeds to do so very well.

A Night at the Roxbury

Stupid, but funny movie. Please don't ever wear a thong on-screen again Ferrell, as for Kattan...well don't be on-screen ever again.

Cop Out
Cop Out(2010)

Cop Out suffers from unsympathetic characters, scatter-shot direction, and a lack of taste.

Due Date
Due Date(2010)

Excellent chemistry and a charming sweetness on top of all of the raunch make it more than a Planes, Trains, and Automobiles rip-off.

The Host
The Host(2013)

Wooden acting and inept directing add to The Host being a derivative sci-fi romance that fails on both the sci-fi and romance.

The Hangover Part III

The Hangover Part III has some funny moments, but you've seen them all in the commercials. Other than that it's slack paced and uninteresting to see the characters you once loved placed in a mean-spirited thriller.

After Earth
After Earth(2013)

While it's far from Shyamalan's worst, After Earth is a confused, poorly paced, and half-baked attempt at science fiction for the the Smith family.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

Hansel and Gretel has some B-movie charms, but it's one-dimensional characters and lack of direction make it a trashy mess.


R.I.P.D. aims for fun but comes off as a trashy knock-off of Men In Black. It does however balance it's low substance with it's low style.


Dull action and no chemistry made fall asleep 30 minutes in, this was the most boring Statham movie ever. Homefront was more exciting and that movie had only 15 minutes of people getting kicked in the face!

Hall Pass
Hall Pass(2011)

Hall Pass is kept from being a disaster thanks to Sudeikis and Merchant.

The Happening

Possibly one of the funniest movies of all-time.

The Village
The Village(2004)

A chilling start soon falls apart when entering the out of left field third act.


Zookeeper is strictly for small children who have an IQ of 45.


It's no Shaun of the Dead, but Paul is a satisfying buddy comedy with infectious energy.

Star Trek
Star Trek(2009)

Star Trek manages to create a broader universe for new fans by amping the "bad-ass" level to 11.

Super 8
Super 8(2011)

In what I consider Abrams best movie, Super 8 features outstanding child performances and one of the best written scripts ever. This manages to recapture everything fantastic about Spielberg's movies, put a new twist on them, and create a movie that is amazing in every single away.


A decent entry to the disaster movie genre.

Saving Private Ryan

With fantastic performances from every corner of the film, Saving Private Ryan captures the spirit of the war film that we don't see today.

The Chronicles of Riddick

Overlong and full of cheese, Chronicles settles for mediocrity.

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

So-so special effects and thinly sketched characters bog down some rad Greek mythology.

Pan's Labyrinth

Del Toro's elegant yet darkly creepy fantasy world is worth trip.

Oz the Great and Powerful

The updated Oz has the same sense of likable fun as the Wizard of Oz, but suffers from a miscast wicked witch.

The Call
The Call(2013)

The Call is a dramatically challenged film lacking the suspense necessary for audiences to care before going off the rails into it's finale act.


Unintentionally hilarious, Ethan Hawke tries his best in a flat script with no direction and a cringe-worthy Selena Gomez performance. Best viewed with a group of quick-witted friends.

Meet the Fockers

The star-studded follow-up for the 2000 hit is only sporadically funny.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Violently numbing and incoherently plotted, Retaliation maybe be too stupid for viewers outside of the core action-junkie group, but it has the charms of The Rock and Bruce Willis to offer mild relief.

Jack the Giant Slayer

Though it starts off with gusto, Jack the Giant Slayers drags along it's story with uninteresting violence, tonal inconsistency, and bad CGI.

We're The Millers

Relying heavily on the comic wit of Jason Sudeikis and the body of Jennifer Aniston, We're the Millers is a welcoming return for Rawson Marshall Thurber

Black Sheep
Black Sheep(1996)

Another movie that inspired me almost equally the movie it is unfairly compared to Tommy Boy. Black Sheep is almost as funny as Tommy Boy, plus Gary Busey is in it! GARY FUCKING BUSEY!

Tommy Boy
Tommy Boy(1995)

In my opinion, possibly the funniest movie low-brow movie of all-time, this movie got me interested in comedy. I cry at it's rotten score every night. It made me into the smart-ass I've become. It's marvelously mis-matched stars have some of the best on-screen comedic chemistry since Abbot and Costello and Lowe is an excellent douche. Tommy Boy can only be hated by a complete cynic and I understand if it's not for you, but seriously, admit it... you laughed when you saw him write Herbie Hancock.


An interesting idea and Sam L. Jackson go to waste in this lame sci-fi.

The Day the Earth Stood Still

Woah, if this was good, would that mean that I wouldn't have been bored senseless and or annoyed by the presence of Will Smith's broken condom mistake?

10,000 B.C.
10,000 B.C.(2008)

109 mins feel like 10,000 years. Awful, awful, awful movie.

The Wolf of Wall Street

It's as excessive as the drug use of the characters, but The Wolf of Wall Street is nothing short of Scorsese's three-hour magnum opus and arguably his best film since Goodfellas, it's also definitely his funniest.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty

Beautifully shot and impeccably mounted, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty mixes dry humor, adventure, and fantasy to create an excellent dramatic debut for Stiller.

White Chicks
White Chicks(2004)

A low point in the Wayans career.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry

While it's certainly not the finest of Sandler's comedies, it succumbs juvenile humor and tastelessness.

50 First Dates

Completely one-note, 50 First Dates is a disappointing follow up to their previous effort.

Anger Management

A waste of Nicholson's talent and Sandler's rage, Anger Management is only sporadically funny.

The Master of Disguise

Carvey performs in a lackluster script that is essentially built for one joke.

Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights

It's got excellent animation and one awesome song, but it's no more than average a juvenile display of a cartoon Adam Sandler and cartoon feces.

The Hot Chick

The Hot Chick is filled with gross-out gags and dumb humor.


Too dramatic, Click never fufils it's potential because mid-way into the second act it's tone jarringly shifts.

Grown Ups
Grown Ups(2010)

The cast manages to squeeze out a couple laughs from a lazy and unoriginal script that suffers from constant tonal inconsistency.

Mr. Deeds
Mr. Deeds(2002)

Not up to par with Sandler's previous work, but Mr. Deeds is a stream of comedic light in the Happy Madison room of darkness.

Kick-Ass 2
Kick-Ass 2(2013)

The wit may be lost, but the humor isn't. Kick-Ass 2 is just as bloody, just as funny, and lives up to its predecessors expectations.


Beyond interesting characters and perfectly portrayed by their actors, Rush is the best Ron Howard movie yet and to quote Jeremy Jahns 'It's sexy" because really, it fucking is.

Red Dawn
Red Dawn(2012)

Although it has a turn off your brain type fun vibe to it, Red Dawn isn't a necessary; let alone relevant; remake or even a good one.

Red Dawn
Red Dawn(1984)

An excellent mix of Soviet paranoia, teenage angst, and war action.


Though it's harmless fluff, Paranoia slowly deteriorates into a shallow cliche that focuses more on making the characters attractive than interesting.


Thought-provoking and action-packed, Elysium is an excellent follow-up of District 9 and continues to be a showcase from Blomkamp's brilliant directing and social commentary.

Don Jon
Don Jon(2013)

Though it struggles trying to wrap up, Don Jon is a success largely in part to its leads and sincere script.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

Not quite as funny as the first one, but Anchorman 2 is exactly what fans have been waiting for for the past 9 years.

Runner Runner

Affleck chews the beautiful scenery, but Runner Runner is a shallow vehicle for excess with a running time that's too short for too many sub-plots.

Fun Size
Fun Size(2012)

Tonally confused and often aimless, Fun Size is a boring, unfunny, frantic mess that even Thomas Middleditch couldn't save from mediocrity.

The To Do List

Nostalgic to a fault, The To Do List uses the 90's setting and it's talented cast to create one of the year's funniest comedies.

The Heartbreak Kid

It's alright, that's all I got.

Man of Steel
Man of Steel(2013)

Man of Steel overcomes a generic script to eventually be a satisfying summer affair, and it's biggest advantage is the performances from Amy Adams and the always outstanding Michael Shannon.

Your Highness

Franco admits it sucks, which it does. But it plays to the cast's strength on humor which makes it watchable. It's still a shadow to what Pineapple Express is.

Dr Seuss' The Lorax

The musical numbers may be too kiddish, but Dr Seuss' The Lorax is a genuine mix of humor and heart.

The Faculty
The Faculty(1998)

It's a bit dated, but The Faculty is extremely entertaining and filled chilling sci-fi paranoia.

Disturbing Behavior

An interesting premise is wasted on a lukewarm script and bland execution.

Fun With Dick and Jane

Despite the presence of Carrey and Leoni, Dick and Jane never truly lives up to its name.


Kutcher gives it his all, but he can't save Jobs from an un-engaging script and scenes that cut away too quickly for there to be any emotion.

Dark Shadows
Dark Shadows(2012)

Dark Shadows is an oddball in 2012's year of comedy, but it's beautiful scenery and excellent performances make up for most of its flaws.

Pearl Harbor
Pearl Harbor(2001)

Soapy and cheesy, Pearl Harbor is an example or Bay's worst tendencies and manages to make a mockery of a nation tragedy by directing a shamelessly derivative; and stupid; romantic vehicle for Affleck and Hartnett.

The Rock
The Rock(1996)

Thanks to its leads and pacing, The Rock is the definition of a popcorn film, for the better.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone assembles a talented cast; including dedicated performances from Jim Carrey and Alan Arkin; but suffers from an inconsistent tone and inexperienced directing. Also, I expect more from the writers of Horrible Bosses and a director of 30 Rock.

White House Down

White House Down may not be the brightest summer blockbuster, but it's just plain fun. Foxx and Tatum have great chemistry together and the action scenes are exhilarating.

Grown Ups 2
Grown Ups 2(2013)

Despite a few low-brow laughs, Grown Ups 2 is another lazy Adam Sandler vehicle that lacks a wit, character development, or even a plot and tries to make up for it in mean-spirited banter.

Romeo + Juliet

Polarizing, yet fresh as Publix bread. Luhrmann takes a historic love story and gives it a new twist that creates an anarchic mix of blockbuster and art-house film.

Independence Day

One of the best popcorn flicks ever. ID4 shows Jeff Goldblum, Will Smith, and Lone St- *ahem* Bill Pulman in some of their most memorable roles.

Chicken Little

It's tonally confused and hit-or-miss, but Chicken Little's talented voice cast is enough for some relief.

Atlantis - The Lost Empire

Although it's viewed more as a Disney flop than a Disney classic, Atlantis is a visually appealing and action-filled animated movie that seems more mature than the rest of the Disney catalog.

Hotel Transylvania

Energetic and flamboyant, Hotel Transylvania shows the Sandler should just make animated movies that are not about religious holidays... *ahem*.


Impeccably mounted and oozing with talent, Gravity is an intense and beautifully shot thriller featuring some of the best on-screen chemistry in Hollywood.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is just as bad-ass as its predecessor and replicates everything the first one did right equally.

The Amazing Spider-Man

Although we saw it only 10 years ago, Marc Webb manages to create a smart, fun, remake that keeps the Spiderman franchise still alive.


A thrilling, tense, and surprisingly funny monster movie. Cloverfield overcomes all of the hate it receives for it's handheld format proving it is the best of the found-footage movies.


A mix of cheeseball-comedy, superhero origin story, and romance, Spider-Man is a fun blockbuster that benefits from talent in front of and behind the camera.

Pay It Forward

Pay It Forward makes it's interesting message too heavy-handed and often tries tear-jerking to much annoyance.

A.I. Artificial Intelligence

Gloomy and overlong, A.I. is nonetheless a provocative mix between Kubrick and Spielberg that always stays interesting.


An engrossing drama about the Gulf War, Jarhead has excellent performances from its cast and its incredibly fleshed out characters.


Wanderlust is a disappointing addition raunch-comedy, with scattered laughs but well-made characters.

Mars Attacks!

Boosted by a sarcastic undertone and it's bunch of A-listers, Tim Burton manages to recreate the 50's paranoia and hilariously mix it with black humor.

The Day After Tomorrow

A summer movie that feels and looks like a winter movie, The Day After Tomorrow has exhilarating action sequences, excellent special effects and adequate performances to transcend above the average popcorn movie.

Olympus Has Fallen

Although the performances are top-notch, Olympus Has Fallen suffers from an overload of gratuitous violence and poor lighting.

Insidious: Chapter 2

It's well-made and has a fitfully chilling performance from Patrick Wilson, but Insidious: Chapter 2 takes an awkward turn mid-way into the final act that causes it to fumble the rest of the film.


Alternately cheesy and entertaining, Footloose goes from being a fun 80's movie to just plain stupid within a matter of seconds.

Hot Rod
Hot Rod(2007)

Hot Rod may be a little too out there for some, but The Lonely Island's first foray into film has enough random hilarity that won't disappoint fans.

The Internship

it's cliche' and doesn't reach the comedic heights of Wedding Crashers, The Internship has scattered laughs in what seems to be an infomercial for Google.

Scary Movie
Scary Movie(2000)

Scary Movie is juvenile, but uproariously funny.

A Haunted House

Tasteless and stupid, A Haunted House wastes a couple talented comedians and the audiences time in this tepid parody.

Edward Scissorhands

Visually impressive and often tear-provoking, Tim Burton hits his all-time high with a sympathetic central character, a likable Winona Ryder, and a surprising turn by Anthony Michael Hall.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

It's intentionally; and hilariously; absurd, disturbing and visually unpleasant, Fear and Loathing allows Depp to go bonkers.


In his first attempt into comedy, Burton manages to create a genuine horror-comedy with enough campy scares to entertain.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

It has Burton's signature touch, but it's a mean-spirited re-hash of the original that has Depp's weirdest performance yet.


An excellent display of imagery and imagination, Dredd starts out guns-blazing and never quite runs out of steam.

District 9
District 9(2009)

An extremely original and thought-provoking sci-fi masterpiece, District 9 provides the audience with excellent visuals, lead-performance by Sharlito Copley, and direction from first time director Neill Blomkamp who sends us a message without getting too preachy.


Smart, funny, and awfully violent, Kick-Ass is one of the best comic book adaptation with some fine performances from Nicolas Cage and the up and coming Chloe Grace Moretz.


Bewitched may not have many laughs or much chemistry, but it's harmless fluff.


it's better than The Ladies Man, but is often too awkward and prefers to make audiences cringe instead of laugh.


Will Ferrell seems to be phoning it in for this often boring and stale basketball-parody who uses a formulaic plot and unfunny gags in attempt to join the ranks of other great Will Ferrell sports-comedies.


Battleship strands the always bad-ass Liam Neeson in a hollow sci-fi flick which is a bloated, unoriginal mess.


Although Oblivion may be a bit slow, it's outstanding visuals and great performances make up for it's slack pacing.

Austin Powers in Goldmember

Maybe I'm burnt on it from its constant re-runs on Starz, but Goldmember is a fine conclusion to the Austin Powers trilogy.

Observe and Report

A future cult-classic, Observe and Report is Paul Blart on meth, in that really funny and extremely offensive way.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop

Kevin James gets a few laughs, but overall it's stale, lazy, and forgettable.

Super Troopers

A anarchic mix of unabashedly juvenile gags and pot-jokes, Super Troopers is flat out hilarious.

Club Dread
Club Dread(2004)

Club Dread may be the weakest of the Broken Lizard movies (unless you count The Babymakers, which you shouldn't because that movie does not exist) and it may have a few flat jokes, but overall Club Dread is better than all of the Scary Movie sequels.


Daredevil isn't bad, but it also isn't memorable, exhilarating, or even necessary. The Director's cut is worth 3-stars, but the theatrical release isn't there.

Year One
Year One(2009)

A few muddled laughs are scattered throughout a thin and incoherent plot that often feels like a series of sketches with a theme.

Rock Star
Rock Star(2001)

A light and breezy rock and roll movie, that has a well-intended message. Luckily it never drowns in its own sentiment.


It's got something on it's mind, but unlike other great football comedies, Leatherheads takes way too much time to get interesting which leaves it as a boring attempt at dry comedy.

The Green Hornet

It may not be up to par with; or even try to be; other superhero movies, what make The Green Hornet work is that it knows that it is an action-comedy and uses that to its advantage.

The Whole Nine Yards

A pitch black comedy that shows that the mafia can be funny, it just needs the right cast. This movie definitely has the right cast.

The Sixth Sense

It's suspenseful atmosphere plays well to its Philadelphia backdrop, The Sixth Sense is one of the scariest and most original horror films of all-time. Although the twist was spoiled for me, it still got me.

The Polar Express

An interesting premise, stellar visuals, and Tom Hanks all go to waste in this overly sentimental Christmas coal.


I have to agree with what Kubrick said "I liked it, but it wasn't funny" and because it's supposed to be funny, I can't give it a fresh rating.

Less Than Zero

A dark and angry drama, Less Than Zero provides the excellent acting with a smart script which allows for a more than satisfying film.


Stargate may not be a perfect movie, but it has enough charm, silliness, and well-crafted action to make up for all of its flaws.


Because I went in with very low expectations, 2012 is a satisfying and well-acted/directed blockbuster. It doesn't disappoint those looking for mindless movie fun. Mixed reviews for it's effects and half a star off for it's running time.

Bad Boys
Bad Boys(1995)

It's action scenes may be fun to look at, but Bad Boys is truly held together by Smith and Lawrence's funny and memorable dialogue.


It may be big, dumb, fun. But Armageddon's rocket-fast pace and all-around great pace make it one of the best popcorn movies I have seen.

The Place Beyond The Pines

Rugged and charming, the movie often pulls you into it emotionally and mentally.

Star Trek Into Darkness

Into Darkness has Abrams directing in full force, which allows it be big summer fun featuring the same great chemistry from the first one.

Me, Myself & Irene

There are two Jim Carrey characters in one movie? This was a good sign from the get go.

Mean Girls
Mean Girls(2004)

Despite the irritating constant quoting from my friends, Mean Girls brings a sarcastic wit to the genre and succeeds for the most part.

Billy Madison

The definition of juvenile humor, Billy Madison is the beginning of the Adam Sandler Golden Era, by providing genuine laughs and pure idiosyncrasy. O'Doyle rules!

Warm Bodies
Warm Bodies(2013)

A dry zom-rom-com, Warm Bodies is more than you expect it to be and has a killer soundtrack.

Pacific Rim
Pacific Rim(2013)

With outstanding CGI and action, memorable characters, and one of the best directors in the business. Pacific Rim excels all expectations by delivering a stylistic and powerful summer blockbuster.

Joe Dirt
Joe Dirt(2001)

I really don't want to write a review for this movie, if I do I will become the most hated reviewer on this website.

Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star

A hidden gem. Dickie Roberts is schmaltzy and has several flaws, but if you're a Spade fan like I am this is some of his best work.

The A-Team
The A-Team(2010)

Fun and stupid, this adaptation of the 80's television show may lack brains but makes up for it in pure entertainment,

The Hangover Part II

The Hangover Part II is not that bad, in fact its very funny. If you liked the first one, than you should like this. If you don't so be it.

A Good Day To Die Hard

Oh god, this was bad. This isn't a Die Hard movie at all, it's a confusing, unfocused mess that the Die Hard name on it. The writing is bland and the directing is all over the place. This movie blows.

Horrible Bosses

Horrible Bosses is one of the darkest and funniest movies ever made. 3 stars for the character of Motherfucker Jones alone.

Point Break
Point Break(1991)

One of the most underrated films of all-time, Point Break is amazingly shot, fast-paced, and breathtakingly entertaining. On my all-time film list #7.

The Goonies
The Goonies(1985)

The Goonies R' the shit.

Movie 43
Movie 43(2013)

One of the worst movies ever created, let alone comedies. With so much talent behind and in front of the camera this was a bigger let-down for the average comedy fan than Year One.

Hit & Run
Hit & Run(2012)

Shepard's direction goes all over the place, but it's Bradley Cooper and (surprisingly) Tom Arnold who save it from being a complete disaster.

Pootie Tang
Pootie Tang(2001)

If you glance at the DVD cover of "Pootie Tang" at Wal-Mart, you'll think it is equivalent to dog-s***, but when you watch it you'll think otherwise.

Step Brothers

Step Brothers may not be Talladega Nights, but it is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.

Men in Black II

A decent sequel that doesn't live up to any expectations. Half-a-star for Biz Markie!

Head of State

Although it's forgettable and a little bit incoherent, Head of State has enough humor from Chris Rock and Bernie Mac to keeps itself from sinking.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

I don't even play video games, but this movie is amazing in every single way. It's quotable, entertaining, and somewhat relatable.

Scary Movie 4

Where are the Wayans when you need them?

Scary Movie 3

Pop-culture gags and over the top gross-out humor makes this hard to watch.

Little Fockers

Little Fockers is no short on talent, but it's short on everything else. Including laughs.

The New Guy
The New Guy(2002)

The New Guy is very forgettable, but has some funny moments.

Mystery Men
Mystery Men(1999)

A cult-comedy that was not for me despite Stiller, Pee-Wee and Kel being involved.

Just Go with It

A forgettable cookie-cutter. Just Go With It is unfunny and a major part of the low-point of Sandler's career. Plus, the kids are annoying.

National Lampoon's Animal House

Animal House is Belushi's movie, he shines in every scene he's in. This movie still holds up coming on 40 years later.

Blast From the Past

With Fraser being as likable as he can, Blast from the Past is an example of how a supporting cast can overpower the leads and carry a movie.

Pain & Gain
Pain & Gain(2013)

Although the violence is too much, Pain & Gain shows Michael Bay returning to his roots and he manages to create an enjoyable; albeit sloppy; pre-summer movie.

Fever Pitch
Fever Pitch(2005)

Fallon redeems himself from 2004's Taxi and Fever Pitch shows that the Farrelly's can make a movie without making you cringe.

The Words
The Words(2012)

A mixed bag that isn't terrible, but never lives up to its amazing trailer which you all need to go watch to right now over and over again.

The Hunger Games

This is a hard to watch film because of poor camera work. The Hunger Games collapses on itself despite a very talented cast .


This movie makes you think why Ellen Page isn't more famous, she's a very talented young lady.

The Sandlot
The Sandlot(1993)


Nacho Libre
Nacho Libre(2006)

The decline of the Hess brother begins with Nacho Libre, a slack-paced comedy that is too interested into being quirky than being funny.

Bride Wars
Bride Wars(2009)

Two actresses I hate in a movie about brides? Why the hell did I even watch this.

Con Air
Con Air(1997)

Con Air is just badass. Not bad but badass.

Good Burger
Good Burger(1997)

Hated it as a kid, I don't hate it anymore. Good Burger is an uneven comedy, but gets laughs from Mitchell and Thompson's offbeat humor.

Wild Wild West

Wild Wild West is so scatter-shot, odd, and unfunny to the point where Smith seems like a phoned-in performance.

Here Comes the Boom

Here Comes the Boom is cliche'd, but once they are ignored it turns out to be a funny and charming sports-comedy.

The Longest Yard

Underrated re-make that shows heart.

Big Daddy
Big Daddy(1999)

Sappy and sentimental, Big Daddy is a reminder of how great Sandler used to be.

Little Nicky
Little Nicky(2000)

Little Nicky is filled with blatant product placement, annoying characters, and unfunny jokes. Despite a hilarious 5 seconds of Rodney Dangerfield.

The Dictator
The Dictator(2012)

It's no Borat, but it's better the Bruno.

Wedding Crashers

Bolstered by likable and charismatic leads.

Kicking & Screaming

Kicking & Screaming is my childhood and taught me what lesbians were.

The Hangover
The Hangover(2009)

An instant classic and unabashedly offensive, The Hangover succeeds where many failed and create the party movie of a century.

Cool World
Cool World(1992)

A slack paced snooze-fest that lacks a plot and humor.


Scooby-Doo cannot decide whether it wants to be a satire or a respectful re-make, which leads to a sloppy mess. Your childhood will be crushed if you were part of my generation because; despite some chuckles and an Oscar worthy performance from Matthew Lillard; of the piss-poor graphics and the disturbing imagery.

Bruce Almighty

Bruce Almighty is Jim Carrey being Jim Carrey as God. Awesome.

Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat

The Cat in the Hat is a disturbing, unfunny, painful mess. Possibly one of the worst movies ever made, Mike Myers fails to bring laughter and instead rapes your mind.

Batman Forever

Though it's visually dazzling and Jim Carrey does an amazing job, everything else is very, VERY mediocre.

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Jim Carrey is game, but The Grinch is a creepy and mean-spirited holiday movie that doesn't live up to its source material.

Gangster Squad

Underrated, Gangster Squad is a violent, action-filled, crime drama that engages the viewer with excellent an performance from Josh Brolin.


A good ol' fashioned baseball tale with a glowing performance from Harrison Ford

The Big Year
The Big Year(2011)

The Big Year is forgettable and doesn't dare to push any boundaries, but it's enjoyable and beautifully shot and that should be enough to watch it.

Puddle Cruiser

It's low-budget charms make it better than anything the Broken Lizard boys have done since *shudder* The Babymakers.

Cheaper by the Dozen 2

Although the FedEx joke is still funny, the rest of the movie isn't.

Yours, Mine & Ours

Where slapstick succeeds in most movies, it fails here in this cookie-cutter family comedy.

The Pacifier
The Pacifier(2005)

The Pacifier is sweet and gentle; although it isn't gut-busting funny; if you grew up in my generation it is a fun nostalgia-fest for a rainy day.

The Break-Up
The Break-Up(2006)

This mean-spirited break up movie, makes you question it being called a "comedy".

10 Things I Hate About You

One of the actually good teen-comedies of the late 90's. 10TIHAY is the result of realistic performances and clever writing.

Attack the Block

ATB is evenly mixed with British dry-wit and good ol' fashioned sci-fi scares.

Pretty in Pink

Not as great as you may have heard, but Pretty in Pink is a satisfying teen romance with Cryer at his best.

Back to the Future Part II

A dark sequel to the original. It's just as funny and reassures fans that Marty McFly is as cool as ever.

Uncle Buck
Uncle Buck(1989)

John Candy is one of the reasons why we don't bomb Canada.


MacGruber is a satisfying SNL adaptation thanks to Taccone's writing and directing.


Zombieland is everything that is great about zombie movies, plus it has Bill Murray.

500 Days of Summer

Is it a chick-flic? I don't care it's great.


A pitch-black satire would fall flat if it wasn't for clever directing and a brilliant performance by Witherspoon.

The Great Outdoors

A 1980's comedy classic.

The Blues Brothers

The Blues Brothers is probably the greatest musical of all-time.

Coming to America

Coming to America is a reminder of what was once a promising career for the very talented Eddie Murphy.

The Blind Side

The Blind Side is a sincere and heartfelt sports-drama that shows Bullock in a fully-committed performance.

The Karate Kid

Not as bad as you would think, but the new Karate Kid barely holds a candle to the original. Also Smith's acting is poor.


Super is a disturbing super-hero parody, but it's better than most super-hero movies there are out there.


A pitch black comedy mixed with a murder plot. Fargo may be my favorite Coen brothers movie.

Stand by Me
Stand by Me(1986)

Stand By Me is one of best coming-of-age stories, not too mention one of the most nostalgic.


Coneheads isn't the worst SNL adaptation but only one out of every ten jokes can cause a mere chuckle.

High Fidelity

Not only did this catapult Jack Black into stardom, but it is a very faithful adaption of the book (despite a location change).


21 is a clever movie and is preventing from being less by Spacey doing what he does best.

Never Been Kissed

Barrymore is placed in another predictable lame high-school romantic comedy.


Goodfellas is not only Liotta and Pesci's best film (sorry Home Alone) but Scorsese's too.

School of Rock

Black's committed performance bring this Rock and Roll High School for elementary/Jr. high kids to life.

Reality Bites

Stiller's directing is mesmerizing, but other than Stiller himself the characters are pretty unlikable.

Let's Go to Prison

It seems that the writers from Reno 911! could make something hilarious if they tried hard enough. Unfortunately they waste their time on another run of the mill comedy movie.

Sex Drive
Sex Drive(2008)

Sex Drive is an entertaining road-comedy with an uneven cast, with hilarious performances from Duke, Green, and Marsden but so-so from everyone else.

The Cable Guy

Carrey's dark turn is magnified by Stiller's great directing in this cult-classic.


Good News! Beerfest isn't flat, yes it's a pun get over it.

Look Who's Talking

Huh, babies can be funny off the internet too? I would have never known...unless it's voiced by the one and only Bruce Willis!

Premium Rush
Premium Rush(2012)

It's poor plot is elevated due to awesome stunts and good performances.

Sixteen Candles

My favorite John Hughes/Molly Ringwald movie, Sixteen Candles still holds up today, despite heavily relying on the 1980's.

The Spongebob Squarepants Movie

I'm ready, for a sequel, I'm ready.


Being an X-Files fan, I kind of have to enjoy's for me.


Bridesmaids is not only one of the greatest comedy movies of all-time it is one of the greatest female-driven movies of all-time. P.S. I'm a guy.

Out Cold
Out Cold(2001)

Odd how it has an 82% Audience rating but an 8% critics. You never see things like that anymore.

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

Jim Carrey is...Jim Carrey. Do I need to say more?

The Wedding Singer

Even Sandler's haters can agree that this is his finest work.

Donnie Darko
Donnie Darko(2001)

The most disturbing yet genius cult smash that I have ever had the pleasure to watch.

Epic Movie
Epic Movie(2007)

I once dropped a penny, that is funnier than this movie.

Disaster Movie

This movie sucks, everyone knows that.

Pineapple Express

The most focused movie about weed, Pineapple Express is one of Rogen's best and has given us the greatest comedic asshole...Danny Mc-Fucking-Bride.

Land of the Lost

McBride steals the movie from Ferrell, but overall LOTL is poorly executed and stupid.

She's All That

A guilty pleasure of mine, She's All That may be unoriginal, but it is extremely enjoyable at the same time.

Jack and Jill

Watch the trailer and you'll understand why I gave it half-a-star.

Bringing Down the House

Unfunny and racist, Bringing Down the House reminds us that Steve Martin has done far superior movies than this.
