Shark Attack 3: Megalodon
8 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is definitely one of those Shark Movies that is so bad, it's good. It's also one of the funniest dramas/horrors that I've seen. Some of the effects in this movie are so horrendous, they're hilarious. Now shark movies are kind of a guilty pleasure of mine, but there is no denying that this movie rips off countless things from Jaws. Sure, a lot of Shark movies have done that, but this one does it more than any other Shark movie that I've EVER seen. It doesn't just rip off the first one, it "borrows" elements from the sequels as well. I'd list them right now, but I feel that would take too long and I feel I would miss some, Bottom line, a pretty ridiculous movie with an unoriginal plot and some pretty unintentional funny parts. So if you're in the mood to watch a movie thats so bad that it's good, I think it's safe to say you'll enjoy yourself with this one.

The Conjuring
The Conjuring (2013)
12 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The fact that this is based on a true story may the most scary thing about this. the idea that this stuff is real. now yes, I'm aware that God and the Devil are real but i can't I've ever seen or heard any spirits good or bad. Now I feel this is one of the better horror movies. It's creepy, it's suspenseful and definitely scary at some points. This is also definitely not the first movie that involved in exorcism. There are a handul of some jump scares but I felt there were more moments where I thought I was going to get a jump scare and it didn't happen. Especially throughout the first half of the movie, I guess that's more effective though. I personally felt this movie was more creepy than it was scary. Although there are still a few scenes that still make sleeping or walking in the dark especially difficult. overall, if you love scary horror movies, I say definitely check this one out. If you hate that stuff, than probably not, or just give this one a try and just now what you're getting yourself into and try not to be traumatized.

Trainwreck (2015)
13 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Ah yes, one of those chick-flick romantic comedies. this one starring AND written by Amy Schumer. Did I laugh? Yes! Is it relatable? Yes! Here we have Amy Schumer, a play-girl who has sex with A LOT of guys. (even though I personally think she's not that hot) One of the guys btw is JOHN CENA!!! Amy is also a magazine writer who has to write an article on a sports doctor named Aaron Conners played by Bill Hader who btw is friends with LEBRON JAMES. As Amy and Bill (er I mean Aaron) are getting to know each other, they find themselves falling for each other. Aaron more so than Amy however. Seriously, there were times when Amy's constant denial just made me roll my eyes, and there were times when she was just being a straight up Bitch. But she's still a likable character for the most part. One thing I gotta admit though, it wasn't Amy Schumer that really made me laugh all that much. Ironically the people that got the most laughs out of me were John Cena and Lebron James. Yes, those 2 athletes showed up all of the "comedians" in this film.. Plus, the ending was pretty abrupt. Overall, it's pretty funny and relatable. if you liked Brides Maids, I'd say check this one out.

Super Mario Bros.
14 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Sometime in the late 90's, early 2000's I was watching TV in the evening and I heard that Super Mario Bros was coming up next, I was like "WOW, they actually made a movie based on this awesome video game franchise? How come I've never heard of it? I can't wait to see what it's like!" WOW what a let down. I was not expecting ANYTHING like this. It did not feel like I was watching a Super Mario Bros movie at all. Their first and biggest mistake was having it be live action and in a real-world sort of environment. It should have been animated and it should have been in a world that screams fantasy. It should have been a movie that reminds why we love the video games, why the worlds are so interesting to explore. The plot to this movie is sort of hard to explain, we've got Mario and Luigi chasing after Princess Daisy (not Peach and not Toadstool) They go with the name from the gameboy version. We also have dinosaur creatures who apparently survived the meteor shower and now look like humans trying to look like lizard-like creatures. Bowser er I mean Koopa, yes they don't call him Bowser in this movie is played by Dennis Hopper (I can't believe he didn't turn this down.) He looks nothing like the Bowser we're familiar with in the game, he looks like Dennis Hopper with a lizard type of hair style. I'm also surprised they got the guy from Roger Rabbit (Bob Hoskins) to play Mario in this. A good choice but he couldn't save this movie. He and Luigi don't really look like the Mario Bros fans are familiar with until they put on their red and green costumes. Overall, there are points when you have no idea what you are watching. and I feel like if you're going to make a Mario Bros movie, DO NOT have it be live action and DO NOT put them in a realistic environment. In fact, I can see Disney or Disney Pixar making a good animated Super Mario Bros movie. Bottom line, this movie should not exist. I'm sorry, but that's just what I think.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III
14 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I gotta admit, this one was pretty disappointing. The main villains were uninspiring, mediocre, stereotypical villains that nobody has ever heard of before in the comics or even the cartoon. But as for the Turtles, It's a shame they couldn't get the Jim Henson puppet costumes in this movie for some reason.I enjoyed watching this as a kid, and of course I would be lying if I said that the movie doesn't make me smile. The Turtles are funny at times but there are other times, they're cringeworthy. Overall, I wouldn't say "worst movie ever made" but not as fun or as faithful as the previous Turtle movies that came before it.
