Beginners (2011)
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Well-paced and well-acted, the film is just an insight on an one of the many aspects of life. There is really nothing to dislike. Everything about the film isn't trying to be in your face the way "The Tree of Life" may have been. Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer give incredible performances. Congrats on Plummer's deserved Oscar nomination.

The Woman in Black

Harry Potter...I mean Daniel Radcliffe can't use his magic anymore and must stop this lady another way. The film does come off as your typical jump scare movie, but it was back up with a rather impressive performance by Radcliffe, who is really starting to shine as an actor. Plus, the film does have a few tension-filled moments, and the bleak imagery couldn't be better. I was rather surprised of the amount of creepy, but engaging tone it gives off. I have to say, I was a little thwarted by its PG-13 rating, because those horror films don't turn out very good. But this one was a little more than another horror film, and I have to say, it had enough good aspects to make it a watchable film.

Spider-Man 3

Considered to be one of the most disappointing films of all time, the movie fatally misinterprets the concept of Venom. In the comics, this alien shit tortured Eddie Brock or even Peter Parker. It was like a drug that they kept getting addicted to. This concept alone could have created a dark and interesting film. But it had to be butchered with pointless side characters. Plus, the plot holes in this film are immense. But, of course, Emo Peter is what pretty much killed the movie. Plus, that awkward dance sequence that looked like an outtake from "Chicago" was so out of place and boring, you forgot you were supposed to be watching the "epic" finale of the Spider-Man trilogy. I was hyped. This was going to tie up all the Green Goblin drama (as corny as it was), Venom's torture towards Peter, and this is why I think Dark Knight Rises will do this concept better. The third and most anticipated of a comic-book movie trilogy both involving the hero's most dangerous enemy, Spider-man failed, hopefully Batman will succeed. Also, the film is full of the romance and seemed to be about Mary Jane. The whole movie was a mess.

Man on a Ledge

While appearing to be original, I never got any sense of worry or suspense from the film. The entire event just seemed random and the aspects that describe the characters unfold as the climax and conclusions begin. Odd way to make a film, but in no way unique. The action scenes, like most of January's flicks, aren't all that impressive. Plus, I could care less about most of the characters. Ed Harris is under-used and the reporter girl is made of focus point. Worthington does his best, but his character's motivations take so long to be made clear that it's both pointless and boring. When they do explain it, he literally says it in words. We can' experience it. So, just like its title, the movie is rather stale.

The Grey

Liam Neeson is back in another action movie of sorts, only this, time he's fighting wolves. As condensed as the film is, I could never become emotionally attached to these characters. This kind of an aspect is probably the most important thing to establish when making a survival flick. While the film does have a few interesting aspects and some cool action, much of the emotion comes off as forced. As if they just had to throw in the fact that Neeson has a wife of sorts that he misses so that you will ultimately care for him. I guess you end up caring for him just because he's Liam Neeson, but I truly had no concern for any of the other men; of which had the most clique of backstories. 5.9/10
