John Wick
John Wick (2014)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

No One Fucks With John Wick: John Wick is an amalgam of action-packed badassery, great suspense, intense drama, blood and vulgarity. I cannot praise this movie enough. I knew coming into this that John Wick was going to be full of fast action and crippling suspense; that wasn't even the half of it. Keanu Reeves proves that he can pull off the strong man with everything to prove, and nothing to lose. The action is spectacular. The sequences with Wick fire on all cylinders. Fighting and shootouts in this film are anything but ordinary. The hand-to-hand combat is some of the best I've seen in a long while. The cinematography is competently handled, and the editing is Oscar-worthy. If you consider the speed of the action you would think that it would be the quick-cut, incoherent editing that is indicative of many action films of today. However, the action scenes are very easy to follow thanks to the very smooth editing job. No shaky cam either which is something that is greatly appreciated. Finally, the acting is amazing. Reeves is chilling. He has the demeanor of someone who has been beaten up by life. Despite this, you can tell that he has firmly put his foot down. He does anything to get his revenge. Dean Winters, John Leguizamo, and Willem Dafoe round out the spectacular supporting cast. This is one of my favorite films of the year, and I recommend this movie to anyone who loves to have a great time in the theater. To close, John Wick is not just a movie, it's an experience. An experience that deserves to be seen by anyone, and everyone.

My Soul to Take

I really don't know what to think of this one; the story stops and starts within the movie without warning. Some times it moves too slow, other times too fast. The cinematography is tolerable for the most part, and the acting is pretty sound. This movie is plagued by a particularly crazy story that doesn't make sense by the climax. This movie is good background noise, but focusing in on specifics with this film makes it pointless. Bottom line, I expect so much more from Wes Craven.

The Last House on the Left

Wes Craven's brilliance shows though, marking the beginning of his rise to legendary filmmaker status. A masterpiece of horror cinema.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It may not have the zing, or the originality of the previous films, but as just plain fun, and entertainment, this movie succeeds on all levels. I don't wish for another movie with the Irving Zisman character, but it was a well fought effort that seems to have turned out quite nicely. If there is a 5th Jackass installment in the works, then I expect big things from it.

I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Am I gonna get in trouble for this.....Okay, so I liked this movie. A movie that has one of the longest, and most graphic rape scenes of all time within it. Aside from the obvious flaws in the order the rapists were killed off by the vengeful Camile Keaton, Meir Zarchi's writing was a notch above most exploitation films of the time. The acting was also very solid. Helped along by the ever quotable "Suck it, bitch", uttered by Keaton, and the acting promise of Ron Schettler (as Eron Tabor). The atmosphere is very well applied into the film; the inclusion of no soundtrack was a very bold choice, that worked surprisingly well. As far as the scathing reviews given at the time, this movie lives on. It leaves to us one of film's most negatively rejected pieces in history; and even that hasn't stopped people for seeing this film as a decent piece of cinema.
