The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

I'm sorry! I don't like this movie! I don't hate it, but I don't like it. There are things I do either like or love about it though. I love all the performances, I love the visuals (for the most part), I love the action scenes, I love the music by Howard Shore, and, of course, the Riddles in the Dark scene with Gollum.... AWESOME! But other than that, there's just not much there, at least not to me. The pacing is abysmal, the storytelling is sloppy as all hell, and its attempts to be as much like Lord of the Rings as possible just feel really forced. If you like it, that's fine. Me personally, I just don't care for it, and I really hope The Desolation of Smaug is an improvement.

Les MisÚrables
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Personally, the main thing that prevented me from fully loving this film was the fact that about 95% of the film consisted of nonstop singing, which gets rather tedious in a 2 1/2 hour film. Despite that, however, I was still able to enjoy Les Miserables thanks to an absolutely beautiful visual style, great musical numbers, some intense battle sequences, and truly amazing performances. An I swear to God, if Anne Hathaway doesn't win an Oscar for this film, I'm gonna go apeshit on the Academy.

The Fitzgerald Family Christmas
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I'd heard a lot about this one going in, but I'm sad to say that The Fitzgerald Family Christmas just failed to win me over, as it's just boggled down by some terrible dialogue, uneven pacing, way too many characters to follow (all of which are idiotic and unlikable as hell), and a very generic plot. Not even he terrific leading performance from Edward Burns can save this film from being more than just average.

Flight

Despite the movie being EXTREMELY disjointed, Flight is still a decent flick, very much carried by an outstanding performance from Denzel Washington.
