The Fluffy Movie
20 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I love the positive comedy of Gabriel Iglesias, so I was super excited to see the Fluffy Movie. It opens with a brief retelling of Gabriel's childhood, and then goes into a comedy stand-up. And I have no problem with that. I'll take a normal stand-up over a story that is poorly written. If you love Gabriel Iglesias, defiantly go see this film for a load of laughs.

The War of the Worlds
20 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I loved H.G. Wells's novel, War of the Worlds. So, I really wanted to see the movies based on this awesome novel. And the 1950's film...I honestly didn't like too much. It wasn't awful, I just didn't like what they did with the story. I understand that filmmakers sometimes need to update a story for a modern audience, but that can also backfire by dating it for future generations. Anyway, I do like some elements. I love the design of the spaceships, and the scene with the alien in the farmhouse. But the aliens look like a Simon game, I hated Ann Robinson's character, and the lack of isolation with the main character. I was engaged with the writer in the book because he was almost always alone. Sure, he comes across the priest and the artilleryman, but he doesn't stay with them long, sort of like Alice in Wonderland. Wander alone, come across someone, interact with them, and move on. Here, he always has someone throughout the movie, and she's not very good company, especially when she's screaming her lungs out. If you enjoy the cheesiness of old Cold War paranoia films, then you'll like this too. But if you want an accurate retelling of Wells's novel, this is not the place.

The Odd Couple

While a funny idea, I wasn't rolling in the aisle laughing my butt off. It's very confusing to go see a comedic movie and the film opens with someone trying to commit suicide. Maybe in the 60's this was funny, but I don't know. I'm not saying it was bad. A few jokes did make me giggle. Story wise, it's a good idea. Maybe I'd enjoy it more if I didn't see a million cartoons that did the dysfunctional roommate story before seeing this film (Like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Spongebob Squarepants, etc.) Overall, it's a good movie, and it's worth a watch, but if you don't want to see it, you aren't missing much.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
21 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A fantastic farewell to the cinematic universe of Middle Earth. My only complaint is the opening. Smaug's story arc ended too quickly. I wish Peter Jackson shifted the plot points around so that Smaug was defeated at the end of the second one, and the third one focused on the final battle. Regardless, if you saw the first two movies, make sure to see this one for a satisfying conclusion.

This movie was so stupid, so idiotic, so confusing, and so insulting to children's intelligence...that I enjoyed it. I've always been a "glass half-full" kind of person when it comes it movies, and I like some of the things in this movie. Call it a guilty pleasure. Does that make it good? Eeehhh, no. No it's not. You're better off with the original 1990 movie for your cinematic TMNT escapades. All I can say is, Movie, 10 flips, now.
