Movie Ratings and Reviews

Army of Darkness

Army of Darkness is another great addition to the Evil Dead movies. It's not a horror movie like the other two masterpieces of the trilogy, but an action comedy that, again, makes fun of itself in the best way possible. Bruce Campbell's performance is at the height of it's cheesy greatness and he's fully grown into the cheesy atmosphere of the Evil Dead movies and how his character reacts to situations like this. It's relentlessly funny and some of the best quotes of the trilogy. The action, effects and cinematography are pretty fucking grand. That last scene is one of my favorites ever. The music is another thing I like more than any other in the trilogy. There is no other way to describe this movie other than groovy.

American Psycho

American Psycho is just one of those movies that just intrigues you and doesn't let it go. I don't know if it's the comedy, violence, deep narrative and themes or acting: it's just one of those perfect movies. I don't even care how it compares to the book. It stands perfectly fine on it's own.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation
½

I'm not going to lie in saying that I enjoyed this movie all the way through. It's in no way perfect, but really entertaining. It had many plot holes but you kind of have to expect that from a movie like this. Way better than the first, even if that was an easy act to do.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Just a guy searching for the American Dream. This movie is visually creative and pretty funny and really nails what excessive drugs can do to you. Also contains one of the best Johnny Depp performances. Barely even recognizable. Didn't know it was based on a true story either. They just don't make movies like this anymore.

Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2(2010)

I really don't think this movie is too far from the first. Not as good as the first but still a great movie. Tony Stark is back and man, is his ego back. He has to deal with the rapidly increasing responsibilities of being a superhero while people are trying to kill him with his own weapons, Rhodey trying to keep him from abusing his power and SHIELD trying to take control of him and tell him what to do. Kind of squished but all around great.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Matches up with the likes of the original and the chemistry between father and son is perfect. The comedies great, everyone get's what they deserve and it still has a dark, if not, darker, tone from the last movie. Doesn't get better than this.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
½

Darker and often more annoying than the first, this classic Indiana Jones movie doesn't let up on the excitment and action. Although not as good as the first or second, it is still great as an Indiana Jones movie and the dark tone makes it better to me. And, yes I love short-round.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Easily one of the best movies ever made. It has great action, a vulnerable hero who you care for, really great villains and perfect comedy. I can never get enough of this movie.

Inception
Inception(2010)

One way to do original sci-fi great, Inception pulls all of the strings and twists and manages to still surprise. It has great action and an amazing concept of a 'dream within a dream.' It really took me by surprise and it's one of my favorite sci-fi movies.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
½

This movie is mediocre at best. The unneeded drama weights it down and it tries to be serious in a very silly movie otherwise. And plus, the newer one makes it look even worse.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
½

It's more faithful to the book but it can't beat the nostalgia even if the story could use some of the great visuals and updated songs.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Possibly my favorite animated movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas tells a great tale of meeting new things and always being kind to the fact of finding new things. Everything is great; the visuals, the songs, the atmosphere. But most of all, the story.

Dark Shadows
Dark Shadows(2012)

Suffers, again, from some stupid characters and off-beat humor, but it makes up for it with an interesting premise and really good visuals.

Mars Attacks!

It suffers from some stupid characters and off-beat jokes, but it is still a treat for it's good acting and everything else Burton is known for.

Evil Dead
Evil Dead(2013)
½

This is easily one of best horror remakes ever created. Usually, they aren't that good but this one takes out the humor of the originals, and puts in loads more blood and gore. It's easily one of the bloodiest movies I've seen in a while. The cinematography was great too and the rumors were true about no CGI in the movie. All practical. And stay after the credits. Evil Dead fans will love, what's after the credits.

From Dusk Till Dawn

Usually, I don't care for mindless, gore-fest horror movies and sometimes despise them. This one felt really fresh. It had plenty of comedy and gore and an interesting story to pull it together. The casting was perfect and putting two genres that are really different, the vampire movie and crime drama, together, works really well. I seriously didn't expect to like it this much but it my be my new favorite horror movie.

And that was my reaction to the first time I saw it. This movie is perfect. It's a great action/horror/comedy. It's a crime thriller and then it's a horror movie and it works so well. That's mostly because of strong performances from George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino and also a script from Tarantino and, to top it off, direction by Robert Rodriguez. The effects are groundbreaking as well. Now I know it's my favorite horror movie.

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

Not as good as 4 and 5 but it is, again, perfect. Yeah, I don't mind the ewoks. They are a perfect representation of primitive can beat technology any day. Everyone starts somewhere and ends somewhere, even the villains. Of course Lucas screws up special editions like nobodies business. It's a very fun ride and another perfect third edition to a trilogy.

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

I said the last one is absolutely perfect. This does everything that was set up in the first, better. Way better. That makes it better than perfect. Everything that happens is shocking and gives you some real shock value. We all know the big one but theirs a whole lot more no one seems to acknowledge. More casting is important and Darth Vader becomes my favorite villain as soon as the big shock comes. It's just perfect and I love this movie to death.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

Something George Lucas can never recreate. This movie is just a well made movie. They don't explain the force or how or how lightsabres can cut people in half or anything to make us imagine. Make us wonder. The newer ones have so much explaining and not enough else. The use of practical effects are just perfect in the bar scene. Of course casting is a big part of this. Everyone just plays their part so well. The special editions just show how much Lucas loves to screw things up and that's exactly what he does. The original is a classic masterpiece and is absolutely perfect.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
½

It expands the universe even more and some of the fights are just amazing. Same go for the special effects. Some acting is still really bad and sometimes they overuse special effects. We finally get some explanations to how Palpatine and Anakin turn to the dark side. We finally see the Wookies and they fight which took way too long. They should have had General Grievous be like he was in the show Star Wars Clone Wars and not some annoying android who's more powerful than the others. I can't bring myself to say I like better than the second one, but is still a great movie.

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
½

For those wondering why I like this movie so much, it is just more fun. It has more a Star Wars feel than the first. We get the introduction to Count Dooku,, who is really cool, played great by Christopher Lee and it expands the universe more. The whole clones thing is something I really liked and had some really good social commentary with it. My only real flaws is that some of the aliens look too fake for me and some acting is god awful. Otherwise I consider it underrated.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
½

The first of the prequels has a lot of stuff that just doesn't make sense. In a way, it's more serious but it has Jar Jar Binks to make it seem like it isn't. A lot of the story, like the battle with the Gungans and everything with Anakin, are just plain unnecessary. There are some good creativity with some of the creatures and some performances, like Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor and Samuel L. Jackson, are really good. They could have done a whole lot better though.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
½

Not as good as Lord of the Rings, but defintley funnier. And how could you think it was going to be better? And of course it's going to be silly, it was a kids book. Not that it's meant for children, because it's not. It's way more dark than the book. It's no masterpiece but I think it's well worthy of the name of prequel to The Lord of the Rings.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

One of the few final movies of a trilogy or series of movies that have the third movie just as or even better than the others. Everything from the past two movies that was great, is here and this movie is even more action then adventure than the last. Everyone you've seen grow has grown more and everything is tied up. I like this one, also, better than the first but I don't take the first one for granted a I see these movies as one. That being said, I may like some parts more than others, like a regular movie, but, I still think this is a perfect movie.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

My favorite of this trilogy, it has from the first and amplifies it. It's more action and less adventure, but it makes up for it with more perfect casting and Gollum. It also has one of the best action scenes ever put to film, battle of Helms Deep, and just perfect story-telling.

Tombstone
Tombstone(1993)

This is a great movie. It has a lot of action, sympathetic and deep heros and villains that you despise. My favorite western.

Titanic
Titanic(1997)

I was debating, but I love James Cameron and this movie was really good. Masterpiece by Cameron, himself. DiCaprio and Winslet have great chemistry and the special effects are really good.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

A test to how many masterpieces James Cameron can make. May not be completely timeless, but has thrilling action sequences and doesn't give you time to breath with it's fast pace in this suprisingly deep movie. Redefined the action genre and gave us one of the best sequels ever made and has timeless cacthphrases.

True Lies
True Lies(1994)

A really funny action/comedy with Schwarzenegger. I love this movie even if it drags a long way. It gets ridiculous at some times, but I like this movie.

The Long Kiss Goodnight

This is like a 90s Tarantino movie if it was an action movie. It's got comedy, drama, an original story, great acting and Samuel L. Jackson. But it really works for me.

Iron Man
Iron Man(2008)

My favorite Marvel, Avenger set-up movie is still The Incredible Hulk, but this is still a solid movie. No one else can, and ever should, play Tony Stark because Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark to me. The whole story shows how great he can play the role and how much of a serious person Tony Stark can be.

The Incredible Hulk

I really think this is a perfect Hulk film. Edward Norton is Bruce Banner, Liv Tyler is Betty Ross, and William Hurt is Thunderbolt Ross. It really is one of my favorite super hero movies ever made because of all the great performances bringing these characters to life and giving them all personal struggles all interlocking each other.

Thor
Thor(2011)
½

Probably the hardest of the The Avengers to get right, and they do him perfectly. I can't believe they did him so good. The CGI is perfect and beautiful in Asgard and Chris Hemsworth is a perfect Thor. But, the did go a little CGI overload at some times and they did the same in all of the other Avenger set up films to so I let it pass.

Captain America: The First Avenger
½

A great Captain America movie that really does capture the World War II era great. I really did enjoy this movie a great deal and I don't think they could do much better. It's like a technically advanced WWII era and it works really well. Definitley worth seeing so you know how Captain America gets to the present to be in the Avengers.

X-Men: First Class

This X-Men movie is amazing. It does so much in a two hour movie. It's easily my favorite and my favorite superhero or comic book movie ever made.

X-Men Origins - Wolverine

Hugh Jackman gives it his all but the script is very cliché ridden and other people just don't belong. It's an X-Men movie before a Wolverine movie. Adding the Deadpool thing made it worse, even though Ryan Reynolds is a perfect Wade Wilson. It's still all around enjoyable.

X-Men: The Last Stand
½

This one, they really messed up on. They gave away all of the character development and even the cinematography. The performances and fights are the only thing that keep it from being a total disaster.

X2: X-Men United

After the success of the first one, they built off of it and made something even better. It shows amazingly how to do two villains in one movie and is definiteley a sequel that is bigger and better than the first.

X-Men
X-Men(2000)

X-Men was a revolutionary superhero movie for it's time and got people into them again. It truly made a difference in the superhero genre and inspired to make realistic and darker superhero movies. I even think it's kind of underrated by todays perspective.

The Matrix Revolutions

I think all of the ideas fit great into the story and I really think this is one of the most underrated movies ever. Brings The Matrix trilogy to a satisfying conclusion.

The Matrix Reloaded

A lot of action and progresses the story on and also pretty stylish, The Matrix Reloaded still doesn't match to the originality of the original. Comes with a lot of uneeded violence and confusing plot points, but maybe I'm nitpicking.

Reservoir Dogs

I had no idea what I had just saw when I got to the end of the movie, but the best and most ironic ending I had ever seen. I love this movie very much now. It's ridiculously funny, yet brutally violent and perfectly acted. I thought that I wouldn't like this movie as much as the others because I could tell it was low budget from the title sequence and I didn't know if Tarantino could pull it off. Now I know it's my favorite Tarantino movie ever.

Terminator Salvation
½

It's a satisfying conclusion, but it is kind of forced. It comes closer than three but never as good as the first two.

Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines

Don't think it's as bad as everyone says, though I wish they could have gone for something more original. It's got good action and special effects, just doesn't reach the heart of the first two.

The Bourne Identity

Can't say it's my favorite anymore. It's still a nice adaptation of the book and doesn't fail to deliver some of the best action of the series, including Ultimatum.

The Bourne Supremacy
½

Again, not as much credit as I should've gave it. It's a great thrill ride that is a nice addition to the Bourne series.

The Bourne Ultimatum

On a second viewing, I can finally agree that it's the best of the Bourne series. It's a non-stop thrill ride with non-stop action that leads to a really satisfying conclusion that doesn't take one time to breath. Just wish it had stayed a trilogy.

Jackie Brown
Jackie Brown(1997)

Slower paced and the first of Tarantino's movies to be based on a novel, Jackie Brown still holds up as a nice adaptation and also as a Tarantino movie. He still has the comedy, drama and ridiculously stuffed story and plot.

The Scorpion King

An average prequel to the Mummy movies. They could have done much better than this cheese-fest but it works well enough.

The Rundown
The Rundown(2003)
½

I'm really suprised I liked this movie so much. It's smart and as usual Cristopher Walken is the best part in this original movie with a lot to offer.

Shaun of the Dead

While at the beginning you think it's going to be a funny Shaun Pegg movie about metophorical zombies instead of eat your brain zombies, this movie delivered in the laughs, scares and even the drama and action which is all better the second time.

Taken
Taken(2009)

Basically if James Bond, at least the now-a-days James Bond, were brainless action movies, with brains. Full of great performanes, gripping suspense and some really good cacthphrases. Sounds like now-a-days James Bond, but, in a way, couldn't be more different.

Heathers
Heathers(1988)

I went into this movie not knowing what to expect and got out thinking that it might be my favorite movie. Every "dramedy" now a days owes something to this movie. Everything works, the drama, the comedy, the social commentary, the synical thoughts of what would happen if the stuff in a teenagers head actually came true. What a movie.

Rocky V
Rocky V(1990)

More than a drama than the others and definitley not as bad as Stallone's rating of 0 out of 5 stars, and yes, that's actually true. The drama's great and the fighting only get's better. All of the characters who need to get punched over and over, do and it's very entertaining. It didn't need to happen and the message that fighting is always the answer isn't a good one. Still, it's a good movie in my opinion.

Rocky IV
Rocky IV(1985)
½

This ones pure entertainment and drama. Rocky's fight at the end and the speach really were great but I didn't feel the training would help him in beating the inevitable fight at the end. We know Rocky is going to win in the end, like he almost always does, but the movie felt empty with the death in the movie. In other words it's a average sequel and a thouroghly entertaining movie.

Rocky III
Rocky III(1982)

Get's really close to matching up with the first, with the perfromances, the script and the fights, but I can't say I like it more than the first. It really has some amazing ideas and pulls them off in a great way.

Rocky II
Rocky II(1979)
½

Now we get to see what he does when he's rich. Not as good as the first but that's a tough act to follow. In the final fight some of the punches clearly don't connect, but the rest does most everything else right. Grade A sequel.

Rocky
Rocky(1976)

Rocky is a masterpiece and even though it can be predictable and sometimes you can't understand Stallone, it still does it's job and does it well.

Mission: Impossible III
½

They try to make it more "realistic" by having a lot of shaky camera. I don't like that but this movie really fits the name Mission Impossible, I actually understand what's going on and the performances just get better, as well as the movies in my case.

Mission: Impossible 2

This one bored me way less than the first and I knew what was going on more often. That doesn't change that I was bored some times in the movie and I didn't get some of the plot points. I still think it's an upgrade from the first.

Lincoln
Lincoln(2012)

As you would expect from a Spielberg movie, Lincoln has amazing performances, really good drama even though it's suprisingly funny, and is a realistic representation of the time. My only problem is that you don't see Lincoln get shot, they just out of nowhere tell you.

Blade: Trinity
½

Just why? Not scary or funny ir original or even cool. Just could have been good like the last two. But they had to just put Dracula as the villian.

Amadeus
Amadeus(1984)

There has been films about Bach and Beethoven and a million of them, but what about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart? That's what this movie is and happens to stand out so well, that they havn't made another Mozart movie. Amadeus is funny when it needs to be, dramatic when it needs to be, and is just an all around masterpiece.

Mission: Impossible
½

Confusing plot points but some great acting, suspense a plot that makes no sense. Would be a 3 out of 5 if it didn't have that great action scene at the end.

RoboCop
RoboCop(1987)

Robocop is a very deep, violent and funny film with great acting and is another masterpiece of the 80s

Daredevil
Daredevil(2003)

Daredevil is a tough puppy to review. On that note, I will review the original movie and directors cut seperatley since they are completely different movies.Daredevil is an underrated movie but has problems. Great casting mixed with ideas that don't make sense, and only make sense if you watch the directors cut. I give it a 2 1/2 out of 5.The directors cut is a completely different story. The ideas are expertly woven into the story with great ating, stylistic direction and a very underrated Daredevil. I consider it a masterpiece film. This one get's a 5 out of 5.

Serenity
Serenity(2005)
½

After watching the show, I can't say it's the masterpiece I've been waiting for my whole life. You know, original, written and directed by Joss Whedon. But it's definitley worthy movie to the failing tv show that I now hail as being one of my favorites. Just wish I could've contributed to the show so it could go on and contributed to the movie for hope that it coul come back on tv.

Constantine
Constantine(2005)

It may not be the action-packed scare fest you would be expecting, but Constantine is one of the most underrated movies ever made and it has great action and characters, a very interesting premise and basically a less gory Blade that doesn't need a whole series, like Blade, to show us everythng it needs to show.

Inglourious Basterds

Another masterpiece by Quentin Tarantino. Inglourious Basterds is funny, violent, and full of great performances. Gives us everything we want from a Tarantino movie and more.

Spawn
Spawn(1997)

Everybody complains about Spawn's bad CGI and thats the only thing they focus on. CG was young back then. The story is that an assassin named Al Simmons refuses to kill inisents on a mission gets set on fire and explodes in a factory by his boss and left for dead. He gets sent to the underworld and leads an evil demon's army and become a hellspawn so he can see his wife again. John Leguizemo plays Clown or Violator takes the place of a clown who is sent to make sure he gets his incredible powers and pulls evil deeds. He takes on the name Spawn and gets revenge on the person who shot him down rather quickly. The Clown double crosses Spawn for the other man responsible for his death. While the scene with him in the underworld may have seemed short he was down thier for 5 years which in that time his best friend had married his wife to start a new family. altough the CG was bad, it was young and his suit actually as pretty cool for CG. Spawn is one of my favorite superheros outside of Marvel or DC so I say go see it if you havn't.

Wrath of the Titans
½

With CGI nothing short of amazing, and some pretty good casting, Wrath of the Titans is most definitley an improvment over the original. My only problem is that the cast, once again, feel expendable.

Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park is another masterpiece by Spielberg, this movie is full of great performances and suspense, great action and most of all great CGI and animatronics and does a great job at mixing them together to make them look more realistic, when they already look realistic. I haven't seen to many movies match up to the CG of this movie, and it was made in '93. Pretty sad.

Rear Window
Rear Window(1954)

My first movie by "The Master of Suspense" himslf, Alfred Hitchcock, Rear Window is a very suspenseful thrill ride, that manages to go against your expectatons way more than once.

Jaws
Jaws(1975)

Suspenseful and very well crafted, Spielberg's Jaws is a very genre bending and action packed masterpiece, and often pulls off being really funny.

Batman
Batman(1989)

For a late 80's Batman movie, it still holds up and remains timeless as it has gothic architechture, 80's pop music and vehicles and clothes out of the early 90's. In other words I love this movie and it is a stylistic masterpiece.

The Cabin in the Woods

Imagine a basic horror movie plot of five friends that go to a cabin in the woods and get picked off. Imagine it not really a horror movie. A comedy/action/thriller/suspense movie that tears apart horror movies to the very core. That's The Cabin in the Woods, and it's completly awesome.

Ghost Rider
Ghost Rider(2007)
½

I can't help but like the good special effects, acting and overall story. I really like this movie, even if it does get silly.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
½

Sorry. Galactus is a giant cloud. Can't give it more credit than the original. Same problems though.

Fantastic Four

Not the best Fantastic Four movie that can come about, but is at least a little good in The Human Torch and The Thing are perfectly cast, and it has pretty good special effects.

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3(2007)

This movie is way better than people give it credit for. It has three really developed villians and Peter becomes a villian to himself. This is a masterpiece in my eyes.

Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 2(2004)
½

May be darker and have a more sympathetic villian, but I can't help but not like this one as much. Saying that, it's still a great Spider-Man movie and still holds up as well. Really overrated though..

Spider-Man
Spider-Man(2002)

May be silly and only get dark till the last fight, but this movie still holds up as a really good Spider-Man movie. And Toby Maguire is Spider-Man to me and always will be.

The Dark Knight Rises
½

Even more great themes and more really great casting, the third movie has plot holes and problems, but brings this great trilogy to a satisfying end.

The Dark Knight

This makes fans of Batman and fans of movies in general, really happy. This movie has great themes and the inner workings of The Joker, and even more perfect casting. This is Nolan's masterpiece of the trilogy.

Batman Begins
½

Batman Begins gets really close to perfect to me, as it is dark, realistic, and has great performances from every one. Does the camera have to shake every action scene? I like seeing action, Nolan. Just letting you know.

Batman & Robin

Most definitley the worst Batman movie, this has too many one liners to count, really bad performances, and some really bad casting.

Batman Forever
½

The definition of an ok movie, Batman Foreveris flashier, more child appropriate and has so many plot holes, it's not even funny. It only doesn't completely fall apart because of strong performances by Michael Gough and Chris O' Donnell and it goes into the psychology of Batman. And let me tell you, Val Kilmer may be perfect as Doc Holiday from Tombstone, and may be an alright Bruce Wayne, but he cannot play Batman.

Batman Returns

Some like Batman Returns more than the original and some absolutly loathe it. I like it just as much for the atmoshpere, great performances, overall story with overlapping villian plots, sympathetic villians, and a lot of fun.

Back to the Future

Back to the Future combines great comedy, special effects, solid acting, an awesome premise, and a mind tricking plot, tries to do each of them all at the same time and suceeds.

The Matrix
The Matrix(1999)

This movie proves people can still make original masterpieces. This movie as great action scenes and characters, gave us bullet time, funny comedy and is very thought prvoking and fun. Would have been great as a stand alone movie instead of a trilogy.

Die Hard
Die Hard(1988)

A realistic and suspenful action thriller, but doesn't refrain from giving us awesome catchphrases and funny comedy. This redefined the action genre two years after it was redefined with Aliens, and this christmas classic remains timeless.

The Terminator

ANOTHER masterpiece by James Cameron. More of a suspense thriller backed by a science fiction story, but The Terminator is a gripping start to the terminator series and gave us a redefinition of the action genre.

Aliens
Aliens(1986)

As one of the best sequels ever made, this movie tackles everything to make a great movie and more, and suceeds.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2

An amazing end to an amazing series. It's magical, raps everything up, pretty funny and full of catctchphrases and comes togther for a magical end. Favorite Harry Potter movie.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1
½

Not quite as good as the last two and it can't help but feel like a prequel to something better, but this movie has beautiful special effects that you don't even notice, solid acting, and a great overall story. The ending. Don't get me started, it SUCKED.

Shrek 2
Shrek 2(2004)

Not as good as the first, but just as magical.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Oh, look. Another classic I love everything about.

Open Season
Open Season(2006)

A kids movie i actually find pretty funny.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Another classic that I love in every way.

Shrek the Halls

A pretty good tv special of Shreck.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
½

Another classic from the 60s. All stop-motion=awesome

Jumanji
Jumanji(1995)

Not thwe best movie, but pure fun and an interesting premise.

The Wizard of Oz

Another classoc full of memorable songs and as much stuff for kids as for adults.

Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump(1994)

Run Forrest, run! But of course I love the story, catchphrases, and characters.

Zathura
Zathura(2005)

Cool special effects and a cool premise, even if kids might get a little scared.

Small Soldiers

Nostalgia with awesome action.

Sky High
Sky High(2005)
½

A fun experience for the whole family, that even has some hidden messages.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

A very Harry Potter story, with a lot suprising figure-outs and important plot points. Essential to Harry Potter fans.

Joe Dirt
Joe Dirt(2001)

Just a silly comedy. Also some awesome catchphrases.

The Abyss
The Abyss(1989)

Another masterpiece by James Cameron. Grade A special effects and thrilling suspense make this one of a kind.

21 Jump Street

As a movie adaptation of an old tv show, people might question it. That doesn't change the fact that this is funny all the way through and filled with great action.

Empire Records

Sometimes horrid acting but a great idea and movie for a dramedy that the teens may enjoy.

Super Mario Bros.

So bad it's good. Good ideas mixed with bad execution.

Skyfall
Skyfall(2012)

Another amazing Bond movie. This shows that Bond still has hope for being deep movies featuring a person, not an agent.

Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh
½

Decent special of one of my favorite shows.

The Mask of Zorro
½

Not perfect, but i really good take on the Zorro legend with excellent casting and performances and a very good story to back it up.

Chicken Run
Chicken Run(2000)

Just fun. Nothing more or less.

Hoodwinked
Hoodwinked(2005)

Another take on the Snow White tale, but this one is safe for the whole family.

Sucker Punch
Sucker Punch(2011)

A highley styilzed movie with an interesting premise. Should've tried harder on the execution though.

Cowboys & Aliens

No character development? You're sadly mistaken. It's a fun and kind of bloody alien movie that doesn't let up on the thrills and action, and also has fun with it's silly premise while also playing it straight.

Snow White and the Huntsman

A very gritty take on the Snow White tale, but has great performances, even for the Kristen Stewart.

Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction(1994)

One of the most influential movies one of my favorites. Great casting and performances make the old, new again.

Tommy Boy
Tommy Boy(1995)

Very funny, and that's all it's trying for.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

A movie that suspensed your disbelief and makes you have fun with it, whole it has fun with itself. Best pirate movie I've seen.

A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow up Timmy Turner

This movie is a dissapointment to the show of my childhood.

Van Helsing
Van Helsing(2004)

A very silly aproach to the legend of Van Helsing, still underrated as a fantasy/action movie.

Clash of the Titans
½

The tone from the beginning doesn't stick, but it does a great job at introducing us to the fantasy of the land and characters over all.

Zombieland
Zombieland(2009)

one of the funniest movies I've ever seen is a zombie movie. Suprising but one of the best of it's kind.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

a very dissapoiting end after I happen to like the other two. It's too silly, too boring, and they recast people who didn't need to be recast.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Not quite as good as the first, this movie still gives us comedy and suprising ebding even if the movie starts to drag.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
½

Giving more for the main characters to do, a more serious tone, and settng up for the next movies to come, really works in this movies favor.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Quite childish and silly at times, this still brings us a good movie to bring us better to come.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
½

Darker then what the first set up, Chamber of Secrets gives us a really good tale of Harry and his friends, even if they don't actually use swords in the aactual movie like on the cover (never got that).

Speed
Speed(1994)

A very realistic and well acted movie, and doesn't fail to deliver laughs at the same time.

Casino Royale

A more realistic and, to be honest, better Bond movie without quite as many of the laughs, but a lot of action and suspense.

The Hunger Games
½

Not quite as good as the books, but i wasn't expecting that. A lot of perfect casting and gruesome violence make this a timless tale. Minus the shaky camera.

Galaxy Quest
Galaxy Quest(1999)

I'm really glad I didn't have to have any knowledge of Star Trek to see this funny, and often original parody with heart.

Dick Tracy
Dick Tracy(1990)
½

Very underrated in the fact that this movie has style, action, comedy and even the longest tommy gun fight
i've ever seen.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
½

Even though full of CGI, this movie stands as one of the best of the long running franchise.

Chronicle
Chronicle(2012)

Even if it is a found footage movie and I'm not a big fan of those, this takes them to the next level of movie making.

Dredd
Dredd(2012)

A very violent but realistic take on the character Dredd, we get a movie that works in a good way, and not a so bad it's good way.

Quantum of Solace

Underrated as it does perfectly at setting the tone and dialogue and continues the story from the last one, which doesn't happen much in a Bond franchise. And obviously, Daniel Craig gives his all as Bond, James Bond, even though he doesn't say it in the movie.

Big Trouble in Little China
½

Silly and very over the top, this movie parodies action movies just as much as it comends them to make a very enjoyable experience.

Paul
Paul(2011)

Funny comedy about an alien. Not much to it, but it delivers what it trys to.

The Last Starfighter

So bad it's good, even if it is a TOTAL Star Wars rip off.

Kill Bill: Volume 2

Since I consider these two one whole movie despite all of the differences, this is just as good as the first volume, even if there isn't as much crazy violence.

Kill Bill: Volume 1

Gory and bloody violence, mixed with great special effects and acting, over the top comedy mixed with dark comedy, and what we want and more from a Tarantino film, make this one f my favorite movies.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
½

It's a classic with a great message, even though it get's childish at some times.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

These movies only get better. Not as great special effects as GoB, but a better story and layers of characters and character development, make this my favorite so far.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
½

Amazing special effects and a great story and execution, make this a worthwhile Harry Potter experience.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

I'm going to say that I really liked the first Ghost Rider movie for good acting, light-hearted scenes, and a pretty cool villian. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is not even close to a good sequel compared to the first one. Right off the bat I'm going to say their is a couple things I did like more than the first one. The special effects in the CG and even the burning look better. They look a little cheesy in the first one and look grittier and scarier than than the first one. The Ghost Rider is much more scary than the first and the movie is more of a brainless action/horror movie this time around. The Ghost Rider is a monster ready to kill anybody at anytime. Thats kind of how it should be. The hench-men would get killed like nothing in the first movie and in this one some of them do but one does make for a good fight scene.

What isn't good? About everything else. They have the ridiculous shakey cam and up close action which dosn't help the film. I didn't like the devil in this film. He was too powerless and gets taken out way too easy. The hench-man guy who, gets turned into a being of decay, was really interesting to me and had some of the funny moments of the movie. I like how Johnny tries to get rid of The Rider but, when he has to get it back to save the day, he gets it back to easy. Some of the human characters were people i don't care for or about. When The Rider uses his chain whip, he kills people really easy. What's the point in using the pennant stare then? It takes him forever do kill somebody with that. The Rider also seems a little to weak and dumb compared to the last one. I don't mean to compare it to it's predocesor but it's hard not too with all the differences.

I like the action scene when The Rider goes to kill all those people who are working for the devil. Speaking of the devil,heres what he does this movie. He turns people into his workers and when the main guy dies he uses his powers to make him the Lord of Decay or something. Then his face gets burned and s apperently weaker or something. He wants to get his hands on a child for some reason i don't know. The kid has something to do with The Rider that can control when he breaks out or not. When The Rider tries to kill his mother, without Johnny's control, the kid makes him stop somehow. Johnny gets rid of The Rider and when all seems lost the kid spits out a bunch of fire onto his face and he's The Rider again. They breifly say the kid is the devil's son so maybe they don't want Johnny to be a rider anymore. Thats all I've got for that.

I don't really get whats going on most of the time. I don't like how Cage plays Johnny anymore. He's completely crazy and no longer calm and collected. The female lead is generic but she isn't a love interest so I'm good with her. The main things I like is The Rider and Decay-guy because they're cool to me. I like how the Decay-guy gets used to his powers in a very comedic scene. He turns people into stone and completely kills everything with a touch. He tries to eat bread and it deacys while he tries to eat it. The one stereotypical black guy is very annoying but I like when he gets touched by the Decay-guy his head tirns to stone and he head0-buts him making his head explode knowing he was going to die anyway.

The conlusion to my review is that this movie is most definitley bad. I think it gets a little but more hate it should and they don't acknowledge the things they made better from the first one. I would go as far as to say that it's so bad it's good. Don't recomend at all but should be rented at least once if you like brainless action/horror movies.

Elektra
Elektra(2005)

I didn't think Elektra was all that bad of a movie. Some of the fight scenes are sloppy and badly edited and takes itself way to seriously but i will back it up. Jennifer Garner was a great choice as Elektra, who is the main character, and brings some good emotion to the role. The supporting cast is definitley the biggest problem because they're just there to be there. Stick is the mentor who has about nothing to through the whole movie. The little girl who knows martial arts and that one guy also have about nothing to do either. The villian is pretty cool. He and a group of ninjas, that are part of a clan called The Hand, are trying to kill them for some reason.

I like this movie because it's entertaining not because it's good. But I really liked the guy called Tattoo. He was a very interesting guy even if all of them are underdeveloped. This movie does take itself WAY to seriously with the exeption of the one scene where Elektra and the little girl are playing around. On Rotten Tomatoes it's counted as drama because of this and it really isn't. It's nowhere near as good as one of my faorite movies, the Directors Cut of Daredevil, which movie is a spinoff of. I like Elektra's line "Deaths not that bad." then followed by "I died once..." It's an alright start to a movie when she shows us are skills by her throwing a sai at a guy's head. That shows us that she has been at this for a while and that this isn't an origion story. Nowhere near perfect but still entertaining.

Hulk
Hulk(2003)

Ang Lee's Hulk was ambitious and it tryed. I respect it for that besides good casting and acting. It was average but it had potential and you can tell he tryed. Eric Bana was a pretty good choice but I think Edward Norton. The plot was kind of confusing but it tryed. I didn't like the villian but seeing the movie will make you understand why. Sam Elliott was a pretty good Thunderbolt Ross and the casting is an important part of the movie. The action scenes were pretty good but not enough explosions for me. When reviewers say movies like The Dark Knight or X-Men 2 feel like comic books on the big screen they didn't mean what Ang Lee did. He put many comic frames to make it literaly look like a comic on the big screen. Otherwise not really good movie and just pretty much ok. Good enough to be seen once but not to see more than that.

Jonah Hex
Jonah Hex(2010)
½

This is DC's movie adaptation of the anti-hero Jonah Hex. It's an action movie shoot 'em up and a lot like an 80's adult/action movie.Josh Brolin plays Jonah Hex who is an outlaw who can oddly survive gunshots and bring people back to life for short periods of time. Jonah Hex wants revenge for his branded face and Quentin Turnbull wants revenge for his defeat by Hex in the past. Megan Fox plays Lilah and unlike any other performance she gave, this one was pretty good. The action scenes and shoot 'em up scenes were pretty good. The ending fight scene was a satisfying ending in both the present and the flashback. Had some problems but something to go see.

Blade II
Blade II(2002)

Hard to say wether I like the first or second Blade better. This one is for Blade fans only. It is gory and has some good action. After Whistler kills himself in the first Blade, Blade discovers he is still alive and finds him and gets him cured of his vampire virus. Then they are attacked by a two members of the Blood pck in a really good action scene. They send a message of Damaskinos wanting peace and partnership with the Bloodpack. They need help aginst the Reapers who are way more powerful than normal vampires. They have unhooking jaws and tounges that paralyze victims. They bite humans and normal vampires and a lot don't survive.But those who do turn into Reapers they never hunt alone. They can't be stabbed in the heart because they have a protecting barier around it. Their are some funny moments with Ron Perlman and a lot of gore and violence leaving this one to Blade fans only.

The Punisher
The Punisher(2004)

The Punisher was a movie that was underated to a big anti-hero as The Punisher. Thomas Jane was Frank Castle and a quite good at it. He is at a family reunion when people come and shoot up the place and the gunshop man and Frank have to stop them. As he makes his way to his wife and kid who he was insanely in love with, were ran over. He tries to stop them but they shoot him, beat him up, blew up the dock he was on, and left him for dead. He comes back revived somehow takes a lot of guns and builds hideout in a persons home. He plans to figure out the motives of the people who shot down his family and him. John Travolta plays the villian of the movie who is responsible for the killing of castles parents and he does it well. He gets suspensions when his wife and best friend start spending a lot of time together and ends up killing them both. That shows how crazy he really is because he was calm before in the movie. They send some people to kill Frank after they figured out he lived and then Frank becomes the Punisher and sets out to punish the ones who deserve it. Great movie

Superman
Superman(1978)

This is the classic Superman movie. It was funny and had some action for one of the most popular superheros. A small child comes out of the sky and is raised by a country couple. The man dies and Clark Kent decides to leave on his own. He gets a job and meets Lois Lane who he falls for. He discovers he has superpowers and fights crime as Superman. Lois happens to fall for him and at the same time a prson named Lex Luthor finds the weakness of Superman which is a stone named Kryptonite. He uses that to hold over Superman so he can cause havok in California. It's a timeless classic that has to be seen.

Blade
Blade(1998)

Blade was one of my favorite Marvel movie. It took a step forward in how a vampire movie should play out. It was bloody and gory and nothing like marvel movies today. From the opening scene the vampires are being slain by Blade, a tribute to Night Of the Living Dead where the zombies attack from the opening scene. It was ultraviolent like The Terminator or Robocop with extremely bloody special effects. It pays tribute to many classic hooror and action movies. Wesley Snipes looks and plays the part of Blade who had his mom bitten by a vampire before he was born. He has all the strengths of a vampire and none of the weaknesses exept the thirst of blood if he dosn't inject himself with garlic. A hospital worker gets a burnt vampire and she gets bitten and is saved by Blade. It's a violent movie and something different from Marvel. Like Spawn people don't like it for the computer affects but it's not like it distracts from the movie. It's only in the end scene and it was the late 90's so they didn't know how to use it well. Something any blood hound should check out.

Green Lantern
½

I'm suprised after how bad Jonah Hex did that they revive another DC character into a flm adaptation. Being it was made in this century they're went ahead and put a lot of CGI in this movie. The suits, the world of Green Lanturns and many orther things were CG. That is something really bad about the movie. Ryan Reynolds was a pretty good casting decision as the Green Lanturn. The evil being Paralax is revived and threatens to destroy Earth and the Green Lanturn from an alien who dies chooses Hal Jordan as the Green Lanturn of Earth to protect the universe from Paralax. Scientists find the dead alien and call Dr. Hector Hammond to opreate on it turning him completely insane and the ability to move things with his mind read peoples minds. They pulled it off pretty well and is something you should check out.

Hellboy
Hellboy(2004)

Hellboy was a great comic book movie that happens to be one of the best. I found a lot similarities to Men In Black. Both secret organizations, both hunt monsters/ aliens thretening humanity, and both have unrealated sequels. The characters are loveable and awesome. The special effects are great and monster effects are good too. One of my only problems is that Abe Sapien is in the first half of the movie and then dosn't come back. One thing they did right was the change in comedic and serious moments. When they kill Hellboy's father it comes on to the viewers which is pulled off great. The fight scenes with the ninja dude were also really good. Great movie. See it if you haven't.

Back to the Future Part II
½

We can all say 2 is not better then one but this is for no reason a bad movie. Marty McFly has to go to the future with his future wife and Doc Brown to fix something with thier kids. Then Biff from the future comes and screws up the timeline by making him Marty's dad and ruler of the city. Marty obviously has to fix this alternate present and I don't think anyone would want evil Biff as a father.Not as good as the first one but not to far off.

Spaceballs
Spaceballs(1987)

Spaceballs is a parody movie of Star Wars and a funny one at that. One thing that was wierd was that they combined Han Solo and Luke Skywalker in one character. Rick Moranis was obviously a good choice after Ghostbusters for a comedy spoof. He's the star of the movie and eaisily the funniest. Daphne who is the princess is like any bratty teenager and the half man half dog charcter Candy was as it sounds really. Thier are some pretty funny references like the person with the alien popping out of his stomach like Alien but starts dancing around. Then thier were the breaking the fourth wall moments that were pulled off well and really funny. It's like any spoof , don't take it seriously. Go see it.
