Midnight in Paris is no doubt beautifully filmed, and its themes of nostalgia are heartfelt and genuine, but with a surprisingly dull script, lackluster pacing, an absurd and nonsensical story, an unsettling ending, and (as can be expected) a completely miscast performance from Owen Wilson, it's a ultimately a pretty big disappointment.
Into the Storm has some pretty decent visual effects, a few gripping action sequences, and a strong lead performance from Richard Armitage, but with clumsy, confusing cinematography and some of the stupidest, most cliched dialogue and characters I've seen all year, it's probably only worth a one-time peek on a Blu-ray player, if even that.
Note quite as utterly shocking and dreadful as some make it out to be, The Human Centipede (First Sequence) mostly relies on its grim and inventive concepts and its delightfully over-the-top performance from Dieter Laser to help it out of typical cliched horror territory, but with lackluster scriptwriting and poor pacing, it only occasionally offers up anything truly ambitious.
Though the villain is a bit dull and the tone falters at points, Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the funniest, most original, and most visually resplendent superhero movies I've seen in a while, with stellar performances, a great soundtrack, heartfelt themes, and an appropriate amount of Avengers easter eggs.
It's no 50/50, but with an extremely well-written script, beautiful direction from Josh Boone, and absolutely superb performances from Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, The Fault in Our Stars is an earnest, tear-jerking, and faithful adaptation of the masterful John Green novel.
