Movie Ratings and Reviews

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

this Rom-Com is pretty much just a Rom movie with Com music in the background. but it is creative and original, which is more than you can say about not only Romances but most movies in general.


Michael Mann cranks the tension all the way up in Collateral, but unfortunately that makes the occasional road bump seem all the more glaring.

Donnie Darko
Donnie Darko(2001)

Donnie Darko is strange, fascinating, and original. one thing it isn't is boring. i challenge you to name another movie that involves both time travel and rabbits.

Catch Me If You Can

the beginning of Dicaprio's ascension from That Kid from Titanic to a great actor.

Kill Bill: Volume 2

better than Vol. 1, but still doesn't measure up to Tarantino expectations. which are unfairly high, but still.

Kill Bill: Volume 1

Kill Bill never nails a consistent tone, asking us to take it seriously some times and asking us to excuse its silliness at others. also, the huge amount of action and katana fights, while entertaining, get in the way of Tarantino's trademark writing.

The Simpsons Movie

pretty much an 83 minute episode of the show that they threw on the screen to make money. which would be a problem if it wasn't hilarious.

V for Vendetta

V is entertaining and smarter than your average blockbuster, even though the final solution to everything ends up being "blow stuff up."

The Mosquito Coast

Harrison Ford goes wildly against type, but the movie is sadly boring.


you can call Danny Boyle whatever you want, but you can't possibly call him dull and mean it. how does Sunshine end up looking uncannily like A Nightmare on Elm Street at one point? Danny Boyle will show you the way.


all of Harrison Ford's bad movies have the distinction of being so bad that even he couldn't save them, which is saying quite a bit.

The Aviator
The Aviator(2004)

it begins brilliantly, but it gets slightly bogged down over three hours.


the first 15 minutes were great, but then it took a nosedive in quality and never rose up again. but at least it didn't crash.

Cars 2
Cars 2(2011)

this came SO close to being good. i could taste it. but it just never got there. for some reason the Cars movies are never able to top their opening sequence.

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World

Russell Crowe is great in Master and Commander. however the movie never really goes anywhere. but it does recreate life aboard an actual ship with what i imagine is accuracy, for better and worse.


while almost no movie is truly 'unforgettable', Zodiac is about as close as they come. Ruffalo, Gyllenhaal and RDJ are all amazing.


i wondered how good a movie about a cooking rat could possibly be before watching Ratatouille, and i had the answer by the time it was over.

Monsters, Inc.

it is possibly the most original Pixar film, which is saying a lot- and it has Steve Buscemi, so huge points there. in fact the main reason i want to see Monsters University is for more Randall Boggs.

A Bug's Life
A Bug's Life(1998)

this is one of the movies that makes us feel guilty about all the ants we've all killed and the anthills we've knocked over for no reason.


watch it for Ford. without him, it would've been a wreck. with him, it's good, but it could've been better.

American Graffiti

this film kick-started several careers, including Richard Dreyfuss, George Lucas, and some guy named Harrison Ford, all of whom would go on to better things (Star Wars, Jaws, Indiana Jones). big things have small beginnings.

My Dog Skip
My Dog Skip(2000)

i usually hate movies like this but i liked this one for some reason. although i wish they would make a movie about something other than a dog for a change. how about a movie about a cat? or a fish? or even a snake?

Batman & Robin

whoever wrote Batman and Robin must have just wrote down the dumbest ice puns and one liners they could possibly think of, and then somehow weave a story around them all.

Batman Forever

the reason Tommy Lee Jones never laughs anymore is probably because he laughed enough for a lifetime in Batman Forever. so did Jim Carrey. and so will you, but you're not laughing with the movie, you're laughing at it.

Batman Returns

Batman once again feels like a side character, paired up against Catwoman, the Penguin, and the director himself. this is Burton's show, and he makes sure we know it. but to be honest i really like Keaton as Batman, and Christopher Walken is as awesome as ever.


the acting is on the level of a 3rd grade school play, and it doesn't help that it has all the excitement and soul of a infomercial featuring Ben Stein.

Down to You
Down to You(2000)

a movie trying to hard to be Annie Hall that it ends up just as bland as everything else.

Pitch Black
Pitch Black(2000)

it seems like Hollywood is pretty much incapable of making a good monster movie these days, and Pitch Black doesn't change that nor does it even have the comfort of being silly. i wish it did because 1. i might have enjoyed it more and 2. i would have been able to call it Riddickulous.

Hanging Up
Hanging Up(2000)

aggressively boring, it just sits on the screen like a rock. actually, a rock would have been an upgrade.

Boiler Room
Boiler Room(2000)

for a movie about Wall street it is surprisingly engaging and fast.

The Departed
The Departed(2006)

the plot is a work of genius, and Dicaprio gives a performance we never knew he was capable of giving. why was Wahlberg the only one who got nominated at the Oscars?

The Godfather

it is unquestionably great filmmaking with one of the all time best casts, but i did think it was very slow and uninteresting at some points. not my favorite mob movie, i'm more of a Goodfellas kind of guy.


the backwards storytelling of Memento never feels like a gimmick, because the movie depends on it. it couldn't have been told chronologically.

The Beach
The Beach(2000)

this mess helped dig the hole for Dicaprio that he has now climbed out of with The Departed, Django and more.

Scream 3
Scream 3(2000)

i wasn't the biggest fan of the first two Screams, but it still seems like everything took a step down in Scream 3: the scares, the acting, even Courtney Cox's hair.

Scream 2
Scream 2(1997)

Scream 2 has all the setup of a bad Horror sequel, (having the exact same setup as the original, etc.) but the biggest twist of scream 2 isn't who the killer is, it's that the movie is actually good.


Scream is entertaining for sure, but calling it 'brilliant' is a bit of an overstatement. it doesn't do much with the Horror cliches it mocks, it just points them out only to fall back on them.

Eye of the Beholder

Eye of the Beholder takes a simple story and beats it beyond all sense and recognition, wasting the considerable talent of Ewan mcgregor and Ashley Judd in the process.

North by Northwest

this movie is a lot like the Connery Bond films except for one category: quality, in which it is far superior.

Next Friday
Next Friday(2000)

Ice Cube wastes his likability in a stoner comedy that wouldn't even work if you were high.


just wasn't a big fan, i think Ice Cube deserves better

Apocalypse Now

the great thing about Apocalypse now is that it doesn't have even a touch of sentimentality- it doesn't sugarcoat. it gives it to you straight.

Taxi Driver
Taxi Driver(1976)

outside of De Niro's performance, i honestly don't know what so many people are raving so much about- i found it to be kind of shapeless around that. for me it was a good film, nothing more nothing less. that's a shame because i am usually a huge fan of Scorsese.

Identity Thief

even the 1 or 2 jokes that almost made me laugh felt like a 9 year old could have easily written them.


it is a masterpiece and possibly the greatest horror film ever made. unfortunately, it was all downhill from here, folks.

500 Days of Summer

an offbeat and funny movie.

The Outsiders

exists mostly as a time capsule, to point and laugh at how silly Tom Cruise and Emilio Estevez were 30 years ago.

The Silence of the Lambs

a good murder mystery, elevated by Hopkins for 16 minutes and Foster for the remaining 102.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

E.T. is entertaining, but it's not Spielberg's best movie, or even his best movie about aliens. it can't help but feel minor along with all his other masterpieces.

Blade Runner
Blade Runner(1982)

Blade Runner improves with memory. Harrison ford is great in it, and Roy played by Rutger hauer is even better. it's the rare sci-fi movie with great special effects that doesn't forget the story.

A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange is brilliantly strange and thought provoking, and it features Malcolm McDowell before he made the plunge into self-parody (joining others such as Ray Liotta after Goodfellas). and for the record, Kubrick is 0 for 2 in predicting the future.

Full Metal Jacket

my Grandpa was in Vietnam, and he once told me that basic training was 'pretty easy'. after watching this film, i kind of doubt it. but it is just a movie, after all.

Annie Hall
Annie Hall(1977)

Annie hall is undeniably witty, but it occasionally seems very smug for this reason, and even at only 93 minutes, it goes on forever.

The Lion King

Lion king is visually great, and it contains the rarest of things: comic relief in an animated film that not only works, but enhances the movie.

Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump(1994)

Forrest Gump is exhausting but entertaining, and Hanks doesn't overplay his role. you never go full retard. still, there are several moments where you can't help but cock a doubtful eyebrow.

Reservoir Dogs

Reservoir Dogs is a blast, you can't take your eyes from it and it goes by like lightning.

Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)

a more explosive Iron Man, but thanks to the humor, it never feels like a soulless, self serious machine.

Inglourious Basterds

i never thought in a million years i'd be bored watching a Tarantino movie, but so many scenes in Inglourious just go on for so long they seem to never end. Waltz and Pitt both play great characters though, and i wish they had been in it more.

Django Unchained

Django is not for sensitive people. if you don't like gore, it's not for you. if you don't like hilarious racist slurs, it's not for you. and if you're an Aussie, you might find Tarantino's hilarious attempt at an Australian accent offensive. for me, i find all three of these things entertaining.

2001: A Space Odyssey

for a while, it seems pretty simple, then the last 20 minutes punch you in the face for even thinking that. this movie makes Inception look simple and straightforward. it is second only to Star Wars for the greatest science-fiction film ever made. and i am quite disappointed that the real 2001 didn't actually turn out like this. oh well.

From Russia With Love

i don't think its a great movie, but Connery is great in it, and so is Robert Shaw, or Quint as i like to call him.

The Shawshank Redemption

it is very sentimental, but Freeman is obviously great in it, and so is Robbins, aka Keanu Reeves with facial expressions.

No Country for Old Men

it is ridiculously entertaining for all of its 122 minutes, and then when it's over, it makes you think. every single performance is noteworthy, right down to the old gas station owner.

The Matrix
The Matrix(1999)

it's like a pretty interesting textbook. that is, until the guns show up. i really wish a character as great as Agent Smith could be in a better series.

Casino Royale

casino royale is smart and highly entertaining, and it introduces a darker take on 007, without being completely humorless.


Skyfall looks great, and it contains enough humor to not be dead-serious of itself, while not adding too much in there. and Bardem can play one heck of a villain.

Die Hard
Die Hard(1988)

there's a reason Die Hard has been (unsuccessfully) imitated so much over the years: it is just that good.


Goodfellas seems authentic, and all the acting are great in it, but unfortunately this seems like the role that make Ray Liotta think "you know what, i think i'll only play mob people from now on."

Fight Club
Fight Club(1999)

Fight Club is the darkest of comedies, and a satisfying psychological thriller simultaneously. it is much more than you expect when you hear the title.


most of it is pretty great and suspenseful, but i was not a fan of the epileptic finale

The Lost World - Jurassic Park

the problem isn't that the characters are boring, it's that they're complete idiots, and the kind of tree-huggers you'd expect to see in National Geographic (one of them actually says he's from "Earth First"). but the action scenes are cool, the dinosaurs are cool, and Goldblum and Postlethwaite get some good lines.

Groundhog Day

Murray's shtick is usually the same, but lucky for him it never gets old.

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol

a terrific action/thriller that, unlike other modern action/thrillers, doesn't feel the need to be convoluted and confusing.

Batman Begins

Batman Begins get off to a rocky start, but it improves drastically when Batman actually begins.


about 40 min. of inconsistency followed by 40 more of nonstop laughs.

Hot Fuzz
Hot Fuzz(2007)

probably the sharpest comedy of recent years.

Finding Nemo
Finding Nemo(2003)

great film, one of pixars best

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

this movie is what they mean when they say 'they don't make 'em like this anymore'.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

one of the greatest Westerns ever made, thanks largely to its memorable characters, all three of which are great in their own ways.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

how stupid it must have sounded, the idea to make a movie based on a theme park ride. but it ended up almost as fun as one.

Men in Black
Men in Black(1997)

the sarcastic tone and charisma of Smith is a great combo with Jones' deadpan delivery, and they deliver the jokes with a cool subtlety. their chemistry is one of the things that makes this one of the most entertaining films of the 90's.

Back to the Future

Back to the Future is great cinema. the plot is a work of genius, and it paves the way for excessive situations and great one-liners.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

putting Connery and Ford, two of the greatest actors ever to live, in a movie together was an ingenious decision.

Ghostbusters (1984 Original)

it isn't as funny as i used to think it was. but it's still better than 95% of the comedies today.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

it is a great film, and all its imitators and sequels forgot that, along with its groundbreaking effects, it has a great story.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders is a homage to old adventure films, and it is one in and of itself, and it is filled with iconic moments and one-liners.

Jurassic Park

it is a flawless piece of entertainment- any flaw it might have is overshadowed by just how much fun it is.


the movie isn't about the shark itself, it's about the people, the situations they're put in and the decisions they have to make because of it.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End

goofy, ridiculous, and incredibly entertaining, with an undeniable feeling of grand scale. great CGI, too. Davy Jones actually looks real. or about as real as a guy with tentacles on his face can look.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

i tried desperately to like it, but while i was watching it, i realized with horror that the only times i was really enjoying it were the times when Davy Jones was on screen. which, unfortunately, wasn't that much.

Due Date
Due Date(2010)

Due Date has all the implausibility of an action movie without actually being one. but it did make me laugh occasionally.

Rabbit Hole
Rabbit Hole(2010)

kind of a mixed bag, but the scenes that work are VERY good, and it is well acted throughout.


if there ever were an actual alien invasion, it would probably look something like Monsters. hopefully Edwards's Godzilla movie will take the same approach.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1

has a real sense of danger, and makes good use of it.


i initially expected an hour and a half of Ryan Reynolds banging around in a coffin, but i was wrong. great acting from him. and in terms of 2010's "confined space" movies, this one isn't as good as 127 Hours but it is vastly better than Devil.


smarter than your average horror flick, but the only reason is because there's a bunch of scientific jibber-jabber that the actors probably couldn't even understand.

Never Let Me Go

takes a potentially thought provoking premise and smashes it into a well acted but uninvolving story of a Love triangle.

Nowhere Boy
Nowhere Boy(2010)

kind of a mixed bag. the first 40 minutes or so are pretty boring, and then John decides to start a Rock n Roll band, and that's where it gets better.

Four Lions
Four Lions(2010)

Four Lions makes a comedy about suicide bombers one of the funniest movies of 2010.


i wanted to like it because Bardem is good in it, but the fact is the movie would've been a complete train wreck without him. and it's not even that good with him.

Harry Brown
Harry Brown(2010)

this movie is about Michael Caine shooting gang-bangers. seriously, how was it not awesome? i feel bad giving it a negative review, just because Michael Caine is in it. guess it's another bad 2010 for another good actor. actually, scratch that, he was in Inception. only for a few minutes, but still.

Winter's Bone

not a terrible amount of stuff actually happens, but it has a good setting and a great performance from Jennifer Lawrence, who doesn't overdo her accent.

Fair Game
Fair Game(2010)

despite its subject matter, fair Game is aggressively uninteresting.

Shrek Forever After

if you thought the third one was too kid-friendly, this one is beaten to death with the hammer of kid-friendliness


the true story is nice and all but there's really not much to it, and as a result the movie feels stretched. hilary swank's character is one of those stubborn types who says "YOU'RE WRONG I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU WOULD EVEN SAY THAT!!!!" to anyone who disagrees with her, even if they have a point.

It's Kind of a Funny Story

unfunny, emotionally cold, and personally i had a hard time relating to it. but Zach Galifianakis finally proves he can be good at playing somebody besides Alan from the Hangover.

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger

a bunch of good actors had bad years in 2010, now we can add anthony hopkins to that list. first Wolfman, now this. as for brolin, he's lucky he got True Grit.

The King's Speech

the best scenes in the film are made up of Firth and Rush just talking, and the director is smart enough to give us a truckload of them.

127 Hours
127 Hours(2010)

127 hours turns the most accurate use of "between a rock and a hard place" ever into a suspenseful and weirdly entertaining film. and Franco remains likable throughout.

The Perfect Game

here's a drinking game: take a shot whenever a cliche shows up. you'll be dead before the halfway point.


i knew exactly where it's was going because a. i've seen other romance movies and b. it's on the poster. but it spends most of its time beating around the bush, and i'm just like, "get to the point."


it never succeeds as a comedy, and doesn't succeed as a drama until the end. but it did succeed at helping me decide that i like Fat Jonah Hill more than Skinny Jonah Hill.

The Ghost Writer

atmospheric, well acted and tense

WarGames (War Games)

dated, and not exactly brilliantly acted, but entertaining and somehow still relevant

Get Low
Get Low(2010)

Get Low is, not surprisingly, like an old man; slow, not exactly lively or talkative, but very hard not to like.

Little Fockers

seeing good actors in a crappy movie doesn't make it better. it actually makes it even worse. did De Niro sign a three picture deal, or does he just want the money? i'm sure he has plenty of it.

How Do You Know

i was completely, totally, absolutely expecting to hate this movie- which might be why i didn't. but i did hate Reese Witherspoon's character, and the ending. and the length. i hate that some Rom-Coms think they deserve 2 hours of your life.

Tron Legacy
Tron Legacy(2010)

it falls prey to a common pitfall for effects driven films- after about halfway through, the effects get redundant. but they are awesome. its hard to believe they'll ever become dated. that's probably the same thing they thought back in '82.

The Town
The Town(2010)

entertaining heist flick that offers more than just heists


Disney has come both a long way and a short way from the 1950's.

Gulliver's Travels

the whole time i couldn't shake the thought that there was an easy way out of this situation. this movie could've been about 20 minutes long. come to think of it i would have preferred it that way.


this might have been a revelation in the 80's, but now it's aged about as well as an apple core in the sun.

True Grit
True Grit(2010)

if True Grit is not the Coens at their best, i want to see more Coen brothers movies

Yogi Bear
Yogi Bear(2010)

the CGI is so bad it's scary. and even worse, the human actors don't even know how to interact with it, so it often seems like an accessory in the background.

The Tourist
The Tourist(2010)

you know you're in for a long movie when Jolie starts talking in a British accent. the Tourist is more proof that Action Rom-Coms might be even worse than regular Rom-Coms.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

if the first two were dime-store versions of Lord of the Rings, this one is dime-store Pirates of the Caribbean.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

i know it's a weird thing to say, but this movie can't even live up to its own poster. i mean look at that thing! it's awesome! but the movie itself is not.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

it is curiously unimaginative for a fantasy movie. most of the creatures are just talking animals or animals with human body parts or vice versa. and the acting's not very good. they don't seem very surprised when they first find Narnia, you'd think a different world in the back of a wardrobe would be a hard thing to grasp.

The Fighter
The Fighter(2010)

The Fighter improved my opinion of all the actors in it, especially Adams who i didn't like before. guess i saw her in the wrong movies.

Black Swan
Black Swan(2010)

never quite delivers all the hair-raising suspense i hoped for, but its well acted and directed, and natalie Portman has come a long way from "Anakin.. you're breaking my heart!"

The American
The American(2010)

this movie is dull. it has dull dialogue, dull acting, and dull characters. it's Oscar bait that failed to catch any Oscars.

The Warrior's Way

alternates between boring and indulgent in its slo-mo action


it tries to be cool, but it ends up not being entertaining enough and so lazy that it doesn't even give real names to its main characters. and for a movie called "Faster" there is a surprising lack of car chases, or even action for that matter.

Love and Other Drugs

yeah, it fails. but at least it tried.

The Next Three Days

there's a pretty good thriller hidden somewhere in the Next Three Days' poor execution, too many subplots and complete waste of Liam Neeson.


how did we ever go from Close Encounters to this? did the alien genre take meth or something? it seems like the people who make skyline got most of their inspiration from Destroy All Humans.


an action movie can throw all the action it wants at you, but you don't care unless it gives you a reason to. unstoppable remembers that. the problem was the camera, it moved too much.

Morning Glory

Rom-Coms are just not my thing, even when they have Harrison Ford. speaking of him, he needs to be in much better movies. come to think of it so does everybody else in Morning glory.


it's yet another jokey action movie like Expendables or the Losers, but RED is different from those in a big way; it doesn't suck.

Paranormal Activity 2

the characters are annoying, and the movie is filled with pointless scenes and relies too heavily on jump scares.


i liked the first 20 minutes and the last 20 minutes, the only problem was the 45 minutes in between

Saw 3D
Saw 3D(2010)

this is the first Saw movie i've seen, and i started to get bored about a half hour in. it's strange how some people haven't gotten bored after six films of it.


i really liked Matt Damon's storyline and performance, unfortunately that only made up about 1/3rd of the movie.

Jackass 3
Jackass 3(2010)

more stunts work than don't but when one fails, it fails for a few minutes straight. it's not just the average unfunny joke, it's one that takes 5 minutes to be told.


interesting, funny and very well directed. and it even holds up on a second viewing.

My Soul to Take

2010 was not a good year for Wes Craven. his masterpiece Nightmare on Elm Street got butchered, then he makes one of the worst comedies i've ever- wait a minute, it's horror?


the best true story movies manage suspense out of events that we already know the outcome of; Secretariat fails to do that. i was left with the feeling that i would rather have just watched the actual races on an old 70's TV.

Life as We Know It

wasn't awful for about 90 minutes, then the last 20 minutes came and really ticked me off

Case 39
Case 39(2010)

The Omen Part 5, starring Renee Zellweger (because Nic Cage was busy)

Let Me In
Let Me In(2010)

if artsy, gothic horror flicks are your thing, you'll probably like this, but if they're not, you'll probably only find it mildly entertaining. and either way, it probably won't be scaring anybody. i found it kind of generic.

The Social Network

right from its opening scene, the social network delivers scene after scene of near perfection. just try and keep up.

Alpha and Omega

there's no excuse for visuals this dull when movies like Rango and Legend of the Guardians have been made. this one has straight to DVD written all over it.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

very similar to the first with its flaws and its strengths.

Wall Street
Wall Street(1987)

Stone obviously knows all the wall street jargon, but what he fails at is making it interesting.

You Again
You Again(2010)

instead of acting their age, the characters in You again resort to acting like children on the playground to solve their problems.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

it can be accused of trying to coast through its mediocre story on its visuals, but they were amazing enough that i didn't really care. and i thought the dark tone was a good departure from the junk we typically see in children's movies.

Green Zone
Green Zone(2010)

i couldn't stand the shaky cam in the Bourne Ultimatum, but that was a good enough movie to excuse it. Green zone isn't as fortunate.

Easy A
Easy A(2010)

far from original, but it is witty enough to be better than average, and it makes a good star vehicle for Stone.


it's kind of suspenseful, and it keeps you guessing, but the acting is really bad and i too often found myself laughing after moments meant to be serious.

Resident Evil: Afterlife

the "action" scenes are just incomprehensible scenes of chaos, but at least the actors don't get a chance to act during them. when they do, yikes.


the only thing anybody should expect from Machete is to be entertained, but when the movie ended, i realized i hadn't been. not enough, at least.

Going the Distance

first half is funny, but with no real conflict, and the second half has a conflict, but it's not funny. still much better than most Rom-Coms.

The Last Exorcism

a missed opportunity. not scary, and nothing really happens. and it kinda takes the realism out of a found footage movie when it has MUSIC.


'Takers' tries too hard. it tries desperately to be cool, but it comes off as laughable. Ocean's Eleven should show it how it's done.

The Switch
The Switch(2010)

a boring, predictable Rom-Com. Jen aniston is very Rachel Green-ish again, but she's good at being Rachel Green-ish, so that's not all bad.

Lottery Ticket

relies way too much on stereotypes. were the black people who wrote this movie trying to offend themselves?

Nanny McPhee Returns

not much better than your average family movie

Piranha 3-D
Piranha 3-D(2010)

a pretty fun movie,even though i hate self-knowing badness. it's like the movies is giving you a smug smile and saying, "you can't hate me! i'm SUPPOSED to be bad."

Vampires Suck

so tasteless it makes Grown Ups look like Hot Fuzz

The Expendables

it's kind of like The A-Team (already bad) if The A-Team took itself seriously (even worse). i really didn't want to hate this movie, but i still kind of did.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

stripped down to its basics, Scott Pilgrim sounds stupid. good thing it's the least basic movie you'll probably ever see.

Eat Pray Love

Long, boring, and a squandering of good actors. most notably Bardem, who probably just took this role cause he had nothing else to do, a position he should never find himself in.

Dinner for Schmucks

what a mixed bag. not a single laugh in the movie is without the help of Carell. but there were still too many dry spells.

Step Up 3
Step Up 3(2010)

what kind of name is Moose anyway? i know people see these for the dancing scenes but even those got boring quick.

The A-Team
The A-Team(2010)

i, too, love it when a plan comes together. unfortunately, thanks to the awful camerawork, i could hardly see that happen.

The Other Guys

it is funny, which is all a comedy should be, i think. way better than Cop out. that's not saying much, i know. whatever.

The Kids Are All Right

an actual good dramedy, and one that doesn't feel like it came off an assembly line.

Charlie St. Cloud

i think this would have been a kind of cool premise for a horror movie. just think of the possibilities! but instead we get what feels like an above average nicholas sparks adaptation with a dude as the lead. even though it's not that, obviously.

Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore

why have James Bond references in a movie where the target audience won't understand them? i'll give it this: it is the best talking dog movie of 2010. but that's cold comfort when your only competition is Marmaduke.

Ramona and Beezus

it's no Diary of a wimpy kid, and that's a good thing. but all the scenes have the same formula- the title character is placed in a normal situation and screws it up.


Grade-B version of Bourne with a female lead


'inception' has it all. so does christopher nolan.


fast paced, gory and entertaining, but the ending was terrible and the movie was predictable.

Despicable Me

tolerable, probably best for people under 10 years old.

The Last Airbender

a career-ruining movie; the last straw for shyamalan, and none of these actors will ever act again (i hope).

How to Train Your Dragon

visually astounding and exciting if you can excuse the horrible title, conventional storytelling, and sometimes unlikable characters. i couldn't.

Knight & Day
Knight & Day(2010)

that darn tom cruise charm. there's a lot of it, but it's still not enough to save a movie as stupid as Knight and Day.

Just Wright
Just Wright(2010)

eh doesn't really add anything new

Shrek the Third

i think they tried to be more kid friendly with this one, but the result isn't very funny. adding '-eth' to the end of every word isn't funny.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

it's no pirates of the caribbean. and i say that because it seems like the hero is trying to be the new Jack Sparrow. he even dresses like him! kind of. and the female lead sounds like she's on helium.

Grown Ups
Grown Ups(2010)

what a turkey. could it be any lazier? i don't think so.

Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3(2010)

not as good as 2, but better than 1, and better than most movies that came before it in 2010

Toy Story 2
Toy Story 2(1999)

unlike the first movie, this one's not overrated at all.

The Karate Kid

not only a worthless remake but a worthless movie as well. jackie chan is good as usual but i think the only reason jaden smith is an actor is because he's the son of the Fresh Prince.


killers is manufactured garbage, and not for one second are you interested in watching ashton kutcher ride Kelso's coattails.

Clash of the Titans

massive amounts of stupidity and a script that sounds like it was written by an 8 year old with a Thesaurus renders the visual thrills obsolete.

Jonah Hex
Jonah Hex(2010)

it seems like the director cares about nothing but his explosions. an insult against the old west. Clint would not be proud. and that's a shame because josh brolin is pretty awesome.

Get Him to the Greek

it has its moments, but in the end the problem with Get him to the greek is a simple one; it just ain't funny enough.


either this movie sucks, or i'm still in a bad mood from sex and the city 2. i'm gonna go with the former. and the CGI was so bad it looked like an incomplete scooby Doo. not the cartoon, the movie.

Sex and the City 2

have you ever been reading a textbook, and then realize forgot everything you just read? that's kind of what watching this feels like. except you won't have missed anything. and it doesn't help that the four leads characters are spoiled, cocky boneheads disguised as relatable, funny people.

Letters to Juliet

totally predictable and occasionally cringe-worthy, but i never felt the urge to slam my head into the screen. which is more than i can say for most romantic comedies.

Robin Hood
Robin Hood(2010)

yeah yeah, i get that it's not supposed to be fun, it's supposed to be gritty. but it's not gritty, it's just boring.

Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2(2010)

good, but nowhere close to the first.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

why do they spend the entire movie worrying about falling asleep, and then not even look scared when they actually do? it's stuff like this that ruins the movie.

The Losers
The Losers(2010)

so busy trying to be stylish that it forgets about everything else, like a plot that makes sense, exciting action, and interesting characters. and its attempts at style are a lot like those in ang Lee's Hulk movie; overdone, pointless, and distracting.


trying to find logic in the plot of Legion is like trying to find ravioli in a can of tuna. why did god use angels to take out the earth? why do they kill every person individually? why are the angels killed by guns? why do they act like humans when they possess them? why do they walk and behave exactly like zombies? what's happening in the rest of the world, besides the diner? could this make any less sense?

The Wolfman
The Wolfman(2010)

it's kind of boring, mostly because the characters aren't interesting. but the wolf scenes are cool. and hugo weaving's in it, that's always a good thing.

Shutter Island

i liked the movie's atmosphere, its acting, and its twist and didn't find much to dislike.

Dear John
Dear John(2010)

i don't hate either of these actors, but their characters in this seem to have the memory spans of goldfish. a hundred conflicts arise in this movie and they're all solved and forgotten about in 5 minutes. not to mention they have nothing to do with the main plot.

Oceans (Disneynature's Oceans)

you're not gonna learn much watching Oceans, but it provides some rather awesome eye candy. i didn't expect much more. neither should you.

The Back-up Plan

really bad with flashes of terrible for about 70 minutes, then it settles on being terrible for the last 35

Death at a Funeral

i like the cast but the movie isn't funny enough


funny, lively, and stylish, but nowhere near as violent as i've heard.

Date Night
Date Night(2010)

not a very funny movie, but when it is funny it's because of the two leads. but what was up with all the pointless star cameos? Ray Liotta, you are no longer a good fella.

The Last Song

so what's wrong with this movie? no here's a better question: what's right with it? the answer is nothing.

Hot Tub Time Machine

a lot of bad comedies came out in 2010, but this is one that is actually funny.

Repo Men
Repo Men(2010)

a tonally bipolar movie, built on a half-witted premise and capped off with an ending trying so hard to be shocking it comes off as silly.

The Bounty Hunter

straight from the assembly line. i've seen all this before.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

honest? not really. 'exaggerated' is the word. and was it just me or did it seem like the actors were reading all their lines off of cue cards from a mile away? i'm gonna go with the latter.

Our Family Wedding

you don't really watch 'our family wedding' as much as you stare at it with shark eyes waiting for something funny to happen. it never does.

Remember Me
Remember Me(2010)

the cinematic equivalent of an Adele song. in that it's joyless and melancholy and yet, for those reasons, it thinks it's deep. it's not. it's just unpleasant and infuriating. not to mention the acting is laughably bad.

She's Out of My League

thanks to TJ Miller the movie is kind of funny, but he's not in it enough.

Brooklyn's Finest

yeah it's gritty, but there's no point to being gritty if your movie is boring, and this one sometimes is.

Alice in Wonderland

this movie has so much CGI that the human actors were probably not interacting with anything real except each other. but seriously, if this movie were a person and CGI was junk food, it would have a deadly case of diabetes.

The Crazies
The Crazies(2010)

there's certainly fun to be had here, and i had some, but the movie relied to much on horror cliche's. if you don't mind them, i'd recommend this movie to you because otherwise, it's not that bad.

Cop Out
Cop Out(2010)

what was bruce willis thinking? this movie's not funny at all, and the characters are so unlikable that you don't care about the plot. but the plot is so pointless that you probably wouldn't care even if they were likable.

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

it made me crave a harry potter movie, and i hardly even like harry potter.

Valentine's Day

it's like trying to support a stack of bricks with Popsicle sticks. this movie's plot can't support its stars. but why bring these people together? most of them aren't even talented, and the ones that are are underused.

From Paris with Love

it's in the grey area. it's not an actively bad movie, but it's not an actively good one either.

Edge of Darkness

i blame the writers. not that the dialogue is bad, but the premise has potential. finding out somebody has a secret life should be interesting, but when it's revealed in this movie you're just like, "that's it?"

Extraordinary Measures

there's a persistent feeling that this belongs on ABC family or something. in fact that's probably where it was headed until harrison ford signed on. why did he, anyway? he was indiana jones for god's sake.

The Tooth Fairy

dwayne johnson is surprisingly not a horrible actor, but i don't think anybody could have saved this.

The Spy Next Door

as dull and lifeless as the taste of a sleeping pill. i can't go any further into the reasons why this is an absolute atrocity, because i failed to write them down. there's that many.

The Book of Eli

you can tell it's trying to be gritty, but throwing dirt all over walls and dust at the camera and using piles of rocks as sets isn't the same as being gritty.

Youth in Revolt

it is kind of funny but a lot of it is just lazy sex comedy, and michael cera's annoying 10 year old voice doesn't help anything.

Leap Year
Leap Year(2010)

oh my. what were they thinking? for 100 minutes straight this movie is nothing but annoying. it's gotta take effort to pull off something of that level of godawful.


doesn't quite live up to the potential of its premise, but the cast makes up for it.

National Treasure

i was expecting something like indiana jones, what i got was more like a 99 cent version of mission impossible. it's still entertaining enough that i almost got it up to 2.5, but there were too many stupid moments.

The Grey
The Grey(2012)

all the people saying they wanted to see more "wolf punching" really missed the point.

The Shining
The Shining(1980)

shows the slow process of a man going insane with great detail.

Snow White and the Huntsman

it has a terrible script and a lot of really bad acting. and am i the only one who thought charlize theron was a boring villain?

End of Watch
End of Watch(2012)

a very interesting look at the life of a police officer.


the acting is straight over the top, and the plot doesn't make sense but the action scenes were cool.

Star Trek
Star Trek(2009)

a great looking movie that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Mars Attacks!

coulda been a good alien invasion movie but it makes a fatal mistake- it tries to be funny. key word is 'tries'. and yeah i get it's supposed to be a satire but it's not funny so it's not an excuse.

Premium Rush
Premium Rush(2012)

it's a fun chase movie spiced up with some neat visual tricks.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

it's an average romantic comedy with the world ending seemingly thrown in to spice things up. it works. barely.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

the first half is not that great, but i forgave it because the second half was truly awesome stuff.

Moonrise Kingdom

the mostly good acting and the clever filming makes up for its random holes in logic.

The Expendables 2

i wanted to like it more but in the end it was just an okay movie.


beneath the great effects hides a boring, cliche'd story, and it's exposed once the effects get boring themselves.

Terminator Salvation

fails to deliver much more than machines shooting stuff, and it answers questions but not the right ones. the best thing to come out of this was that hilarious christian bale rant.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

how do you make a movie about giant robots fighting and not make it interesting to look at? this movie pulls it off, and as an extra, it makes it grating.


a few good moments, but the action just didn't deliver. too shaky. and michael bay can't tell a comprehensible story to save his life.

Take Me Home Tonight

'take me home tonight' is a desert of nothingness you get so firmly lost in that you go into a daze and everything gets blurry, and you stare at the things around you and start counting them. michael biehn deserves better, chris pratt deserves much better, heck even topher grace deserves better.


rango is the rare animated film that has the courage to push the boundaries of the PG rating. and does timothy olyphant do a great clint eastwood impression or what?


can't wait for the sequel.

Back to the Future Part II

science, you now have a mere 3 years. as for the movie, it's fun, funny, and a worthy sequel.

Wrath of the Titans

the movie's only 99 minutes. it's as if the writers thought, 'i don't know what else to do. let's just end it.'

Ruby Sparks
Ruby Sparks(2012)

chalk it up as wasted potential. i thought its premise worked better in the more comedic moments, when it tried to be dramatic it came off as pretentious and silly.

Super 8
Super 8(2011)

horrible ending. other than that, really good.

Ice Age: Continental Drift

this is gonna be a Long review. i apologize for that. it just turned out that way. the fourth ice age film has so many problems i actually had to write them down as i was watching it to remember them. first off, the movie is just excruciatingly tired. not a single cliche goes unused or forgotten about. manny's daughter hates him, she has a crush on another mammoth, unfunny comic relief, stupid villains, stuff Like that. it's all modernized, too. drake, who i think is a rapper but i don't care enough to Look it up, voices a mammoth, and he's terrible. just annoying. nikki minaj just gave me another reason to hate her. boy, do i. in fact, about 90% of the voice cast is awful. even actors i normally Like annoyed me. aziz ansari, who saved Last year's 30 Minutes or Less, is simply grating, spouting out kiddy dialogue in his now annoying voice. i Like nick frost, too, usually. but in this movie he acts as the fat, unfunny comic relief i mentioned earlier. his buddy, simon pegg, saved the Last movie, but nick can't come close to performing such a feat. but it's not his fault the film is beyond saving. wanda sykes plays an old sloth, do i even need to explain why that didn't work? the villains are pirates, the Leader of them is played by peter dinklage. they're boring villains. but worst of all they DON'T HAVE PIRATE ACCENTS. they sound american. pirates should not sound Like that, it's boring. at one point, they sing a song. really, a song. in an Ice Age movie. come on! and if that's not enough, it's completely abysmal. and that has nothing to do with my hate for the movie. it was just an awful song. the characters, usually colorful in these movies, are boring as watching grass grow. i hardly remember they were in the movie. for example Diego would say a Line and i'd remember, 'oh yeah, Diego's in this movie.' you've probably noticed how i've been capitalizing the L's in this review. that's because Lowercase L's bother me. that alone is a more interesting characteristic than any offered by the characters in this film. the only complements i can offer this movie don't even deserve to be compliments any more. of course it has good animation, every animated movie now does. it's Like saying a film was shot in 'good quality'. and of course kids will Like it. and you may be wondering why i'm being so sinister in a review for a kids film. but it's because they'll Like anything. have some things move around on the screen, give them a few annoying quotes to repeat, and BOOM, it's the best movie they've ever seen. speaking of things moving around on the screen, there's 3d gimmicks galore, and NONE of them are essential to the story, which just wheezes along Like a SmartForTwo. the best animated films, of course, appeal to adults as well as children. well, this movie seems to try and do the exact opposite of that. to actually try. there's a scene where the pirate Leader says 'you're a funny guy' to manny. perfect spot for a Goodfellas reference, right? but they didn't do one. the average joke in this film is this: a character (usually Sid) says something stupid. manny hits them with his trunk. that's it. i felt sorry for Denis Leary, Nick Frost, but most of all, Ray Romano. he deserves better than this. they all do. in fact, i think Romano was the only thing keeping me from giving this a 0/5, it was godawful. fighting it out with ATM for the worst film of the year for me.

God Bless America

sometimes it is very funny, but the satire is also sometimes very exaggerated

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

better than the first but not quite as good as the second.

Reign of Fire

i had a decent time watching it but i just couldn't get over how pitifully stupid it really was.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

you may complain that the movie is silly- that's not the problem. the problem is that it tries not to be.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

good, but could have and should have been less confusing

Attack the Block

fast paced and action packed with some surprisingly good acting.

You Only Live Twice

not the best Bond but better than the last one.

The Campaign
The Campaign(2012)

a few funny parts but not enough

The Watch
The Watch(2012)

a few actors who deserve better working with a script that sounds like it was written by a 12 year old.

Total Recall
Total Recall(2012)

it's the worst kind of remake- the kind that's painfully predictable because it does exactly what the original did and only makes things worse when it tries to work on its own terms.


like a lot of films, Lawless pulls itself together in its second half.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

combines groundbreaking effects with emotional depth and iconic characters, making it a great start to the star wars saga.

The Amazing Spider-Man

forget how similar it is to the other spider-man and you'll be fine.

The Recruit
The Recruit(2003)

if i could sum up 'the recruit' in one word it would be 'awkward'. it moves along at its awkward pace, moving its awkward plot along with awkward scenes made up of awkward dialogue. i liked the cast though.


the once great pixar has now dissolved into a barrel of forgettable characters and over-pronounced Scottish accents


ted is pretty lazy but very funny.

The Sixth Sense

an effective film, with a couple plot holes.


does just enough with its promising concept to be suspenseful.

The 6th Day
The 6th Day(2000)

a sci-fi movie that fails so hard on every level that not even arnold can save it.

The Count of Monte Cristo

an uneventful film devoid of wit, originality, or any reason to care.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

stupid characters, bad editing, and a running time that is way too short

Predator 2
Predator 2(1990)

a dumb, unoriginal mess.

Pearl Harbor
Pearl Harbor(2001)

not only does it have some of the worst writing i've ever seen in a movie, but it's also offensive. let's just say i hope this movie never had a german or japanese release.

The Dark Knight

the dark knight is practically constructed of great scenes.


the scares in 'insidious' are hit or miss- some of them work brilliantly, others fail miserably. but the former outnumber the latter.

The Prestige
The Prestige(2006)

good but not one of nolan's best


fails to tell a coherent story and to keep you interested, but i liked the setting in the bahamas. and the sharks. too bad they didn't have frickin laser beams attached to their heads.


smarter than but not as thrilling as the first ones

Dr. No
Dr. No(1962)

a fitting cinematic opening for Bond.

Black Hawk Down

the first half is a complete mess that totally wastes a great cast. but the second half is better, because the movie starts to focus.


it's a pretty fun ride if you don't compare it to nolan's batmans

Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines

every good scene is ruined by the terrible acting and writing. in the end it's just a poorly acted carbon copy of the original films that's nowhere near as good.

Gremlins 2: The New Batch

twice as stupid as the first, but also just as entertaining.

Minority Report

like 'the matrix', 'minority report' combines action and ideas almost flawlessly.


i think i got cancer just from watching this

The Thing
The Thing(2011)

this prequel to john carpenter's 'the thing' is your standard monster movie, with no effective scares but some cool effects.

The Woman in Black

takes a while to get going, but the second half is entertaining.

The Birds
The Birds(1963)

a good movie, but a lot of it felt really drawn out.


somehow, it manages to feel uneventful.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

aside from a couple flaws, a pretty good movie.

Role Models
Role Models(2008)

funny but predictable.

Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark

does a great job building up its atmosphere... and then forgets to be scary.


really stupid and really entertaining.

Dawn of the Dead

it suffers from a complete lack of originality and (oddly) a lack of gore, but it was still pretty entertaining.

The Cabin in the Woods

there's never been another movie quite like this one.

Saving Private Ryan

a realistic, violent, and well-acted war film.

Kung Fu Panda 2

compared to the first one, it has a stronger story and is funnier.

Kung Fu Panda

great animation and surprisingly funny humor.

The Incredibles

visually great and very funny in parts

Apollo 13
Apollo 13(1995)

somehow still manages to be suspenseful and dramatic even though it's based off a true story that everyone knows the outcome of.


a creepy thriller with good acting and a plot that has all kinds of possibilities. there were a few things i wish it would have explained, though.

3:10 to Yuma
3:10 to Yuma(2007)

an entertaining Western

The Goonies
The Goonies(1985)

first 30 minutes were good, everything after that was pretty much mediocre


just a series of random gags that are only sometimes funny.


too bad eric bana was replaced by the hulk for the entire third act, he might have made this otherwise terrible movie a little better.

Iron Man
Iron Man(2008)

a great movie: interesting, action packed, funny, and with a great cast.

Shrek 2
Shrek 2(2004)

way better than the first

The Hunger Games

i'm not gonna hop on the bandwagon and complain about it being a battle royale ripoff. the first half was decent but the second half pulled almost every punch and gave us every cliche in the book.


original, visually incredible. and somehow it even created a better love story in 30 minutes with no dialogue than most films can, in 2 hours, with dialogue. not to mention it did it with robots

Jurassic Park III

there was just something off about this movie. maybe it was the new characters. maybe it was the absence of spielberg. yeah, that was probably it.

The Terminator

one of those movies that has action and ideas and finds the perfect balance between them.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

to be honest i thought it was quite boring. nothing really happens for the first 100 minutes, and when things finally start to pick up, it's not worth the wait.

In Time
In Time(2011)

doesn't scratch the surface of the potential of its concept

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (Ice Age 3)

not a great movie, but simon pegg barely saves it.

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown

the animation is still good but the humor is more childish this time.


unfocused and poorly edited but sometimes entertaining.

War of the Worlds

fast paced and well acted entertainment.

In Bruges
In Bruges(2008)

a funny movie with good acting

Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy

the second half was pretty funny but overall just an average movie.

The Day After Tomorrow

the effects and disaster scenes were cool and entertaining, but the human stories were boring and uninteresting.

Air Force One

the good parts in this movie outweigh the bad parts, but only slightly.


the appeal of the special effects wear off after a while, and we're left with terrible writing, barely tolerable characters, and a half-baked conspiracy as a plot.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

it is sometimes confusing and some of the characters are annoying, but i still enjoyed it.

Planet of the Apes

planet of the apes was a GREAT idea for a movie, but it just didn't know what to do with it. after the great concept is revealed, it kind of dissolves into standard and even a bit tedious. it seems like it was trying to coast on the concept a bit. i'll give it a couple things, though; it raises thought provoking questions about society, i can't deny that. also, loved the ending. too bad some of the posters gave it away!


visually spectacular and very funny.

King Kong
King Kong(2005)

the romance scenes with Ann and king kong were annoying but other than that it was entertaining

Office Space
Office Space(1999)

pretty funny but not great

Puss in Boots

a movie where the parts that work outnumber the parts that don't.

The Dark Knight Rises

a very satisfying conclusion.

The Hurt Locker

an intense movie with good acting.

Wedding Crashers

treads the same ground as other romantic comedies, and isn't funny enough to compensate.

The Matrix Revolutions

the first two combined action and ideas, but this movie relies solely on action, and it's stale and repetitive.

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

a boring movie with bad acting and bad writing that grows tedious by the end.

Beneath The Planet Of The Apes

this movie sucks, it had bad acting, effects, sound, and the ending was terrible and abrupt.

Jaws: The Revenge

not as much of a disgrace as the third film but a disgrace nonetheless.

Wes Craven's New Nightmare

so clever i don't even know where to begin. a return to form for the franchise.

Paranormal Activity 3

it still isn't scary, but unlike the second film, it is intense and gripping.

Paranormal Activity

not scary but suspenseful and gripping.

Tropic Thunder

funny, witty, and entertaining.

Ocean's Thirteen

not great, but better than the second film.

Toy Story
Toy Story(1995)

original and funny

Dirty Harry
Dirty Harry(1971)

a classic crime thriller.

Magnum Force
Magnum Force(1973)

really good for a sequel.

Ocean's Twelve

this movie makes no sense.


a good, suspenseful movie.

Total Recall
Total Recall(1990)

one of the most original films i've seen.


it has too many problems to count, but it's not without its redeeming qualities.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2

it was good, but i'd be lying if i didn't say i was a little disappointed.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

starts off good then quickly declines.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

a huge improvement over the first one.

The Spongebob Squarepants Movie

a fun movie version of the show, which i also like.

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas

a hilarious movie, but a lot of suspension of disbelief is required.

Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

if you don't like racist jokes, this is not the movie for you. if you do, it's hilarious.

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

not as good as the first in my opinion but still good

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

it has some good animation, but it's also badly plotted and uneven. kids will like, though

Friday the 13th

they should stop making these

Leaves of Grass

edward norton makes this movie. if he wasn't in it, i wouldn't have liked it.

Alien Resurrection

we've seen it before, but it's still entertaining.

The Hangover
The Hangover(2009)

funny the whole way through.

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3(2007)

cluttered, but entertaining. not as good as the previous film.


fast, funny, clever, and gory.

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

funnier than the first one, and it has a stronger plot.

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

for the first hour, it was just okay. it wasn't until the last half hour that it really began to pick up.

Men in Black III

this was the sequel that the first film deserved. great effects and the time travel aspect makes things interesting.

Captain America: The First Avenger

to say that this film exceeded my expectations would be an incredible understatement. my favorite marvel movie so far.


an entertaining movie with some cool visuals.

Back to the Future Part III

on par with the first sequel.

Jaws 3
Jaws 3(1983)

it's a shame to see a masterpiece like the original dissolve into something this bad. it's like the fourth movie without the somewhat appealing cast.

The Incredible Hulk

sit back and watch Hulk smash.

Shark Night 3D

sharks are awesome, why can't they be put in better movies than this, one of the worst movies of 2011?

Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 2(2004)

slightly improves on the original, mostly because of alfred molina as doctor octopus. he was awesome


really fun to watch.

Airport 1975
Airport 1975(1974)

i watched this because i was bored, and while it's a good time waster, it's just sort of there. nothing special at all.

The Bourne Ultimatum

it was a good film but not as good as the first two.

The Bourne Identity

it was a very good movie and a great start to the trilogy.

The Matrix Reloaded

not bad, the second half was great and almost made up for the boring first half.


a consistently funny movie with a great early performance from bill murray.

Mission: Impossible 2

this feels like mission impossible crossed with the matrix and made worse, with more slo-mo.

Sudden Impact

clint eastwood directed this one, and that's why i hate to say that it's terrible. but i can't help it. it's just terrible.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

not up to par with the original trilogy, but still a fun movie.

Mission: Impossible III

okay. the first was way better

Up in Smoke
Up in Smoke(1978)

mindless but occasionally funny. an okay movie that you will forget about as soon as you finish it.

Ocean's Eleven

the pacing is a bit off and the soundtrack is annoying, but those small problems are more than made up for because of how fun it is to watch.


a well directed, well written, and well acted film that exceeded my expectations.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

not as good as raiders or crusade, but those were some very high standards to live up to. this is a very good film.


even thought cloverfield lost alot of steam in the second half, i still love the style of filming it, and it gives a really interesting look at the other side of a monster movie.

Mission: Impossible

it's slow at times but when the action scenes come they are epic and the plot is interesting, even if it gets confusing sometimes.

Shaun of the Dead

not as good as hot fuzz but still very good.

Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction(1994)

a great movie that is almost impossible not to like

Ice Age
Ice Age(2002)

i thought it was pretty good.


a pretty good animated movie that spawned some really good spin-offs.


has some cool attack scenes and some well done chase sequences but it doesn't make up for the bad characters, dialogue and story.


even better than the first and one of my all time favorite movies.

Jaws 2
Jaws 2(1978)

not bad for a sequel, and a masterpiece compared to jaws 3 and 4.
