Coltin Lillico's Movie Ratings - Rotten Tomatoes

Movie Ratings and Reviews


One of if not the greatest film ever made

War for the Planet of the Apes

A film boasting such a talented cast and crew is let down by a poorly conceived plot that values allegory over actual storytelling. Still, the production quality is sky high, but it feels like a missed opportunity to create something truly special.


Christopher Nolan's latest film, Dunkirk, is an epic that lives up to the name of the genre.

Dunkirk succeeds in spectacular fashion. The central theme of sacrifice is wrought out in Tom Hardy's character. An British Air Force pilot, who finds himself in the most essential combat position for the allies. These air battles succeed in spectacular fashion. With few CGI effects, the movie does not contain a single flawed visual. It goes to show how good a film can look when the director chooses to avoid relying on computer effects.

Dunkirk is probably Nolan's most straightforward least complex film in terms of plot structure. However, the streamlined nature of the narrative leaves little to pick apart. Nolan is truly a master at his craft. The impeccable visuals, sound design, editing, and acting result in an intoxicating thrillride.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

The best of the series, boasting an incredible story, effects, and acting.


Arrival squanders it's beautiful premise with a plodding, messy, and ultimately unsatisfying plot. This is a disappointment after three fantastic films from director Denis Villeneuve. Those films were filled with tension, held up by strong character development. Arrival, on the other hand, never builds to anything. I admire the film's thought-provoking themes, the compelling theory on the way language shapes our understanding of the world, but it just doesn't work on a narrative level.

Suicide Squad

I thought it would be at least on par with Batman V Superman, I was wrong


Another gripping film from Villeneuve. He is the director to follow, and this film proves it

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow

A refreshing and exciting sci-fi action flick.

Drinking Buddies

Drinking Buddies would have been nothing without its captivating cast. Jake Johnson and Olivia Munn absolutely carry this movie, and they have to. The film's pace could not be slower, but it's tantalizing will-they-won't-they remains intriguing for the entire runtime. Ultimately, the ending surprises, but deep down, it feels real. Which is the highest compliment I can give this film.

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3(2007)

I don't understand why everyone has such a big problem with this film. Sure it's bulging with villains but it's still a good movie. I mean it's almost, dare I say -epic-. Except for the cheesy '"emo" Parker part. I really enjoyed this movie.

Fast & Furious 6

Time for fast cars, explosive action, and fun... right? For the most part, Furious 6 delivers what its best known for. If you liked Fast 5, this movie should be just as fun and exciting as its predecessor. For the rest of us, well, don't take the movie seriously and it'll be okay.

Dr Seuss' The Lorax

Filled with a stupid political agenda and a boring, lame, joke-ridden story, The Lorax is nothing like the classic Dr. Seuss story. Kids will enjoy it for the animation it is but anyone else will be bored to death.

Despicable Me

I don't like this movie, sorry. It is too silly, too predictable, and sometimes just downright boring.

Cars 2
Cars 2(2011)

This movie so stupid and horrible. I don't even know how they messed it up so bad. The first Cars was funny, this one is disgusting.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

A different kind of movie. Eternal Sunshine is interesting for sure. But whatever it was trying to do, Source Code did it better.

Man of Steel
Man of Steel(2013)

Man of Steel is awesome. Not only does it bring back Superman from the grave, it gives so much more than what was expected. Man of Steel never relents. Every single moment is engaging. Whether its a quiet internal struggle inside Kal-el or a loud and exciting battle with Zod, Man of Steel is one of the better superhero films . Oh, and the music is incredible.

After rewatching it. I still find a lot of enjoyment in Man Of Steel. But seeing the way these DC movies have gone, the storytelling flaws in Man Of Steel have become more apparent. It is still miles above Batman V Superman or Suicide Squad though.


James Cameron must be the most overrated director ever. Almost every single one of his movies are overhyped and underachieve almost every time. Avatar, supposedly the most visually spectacular film ever ends up being a boring cartoon. Literally, 2 hours of its incredibly long run time is blue CGI creatures running around a CGI world. The story is so weak its laughable. The ruthless military commander strikes again, didn't see that one coming. And since there isn't really any acting to comment on since most of the movie is a cartoon, what else is there to say. Avatar is a boring, CGI ridden movie with a laughable plot and no acting unless you count Sam Worthington moping around when he's not inside his machine. What a waste of a film.


The one thing you can't call gravity...boring. But for all its visual flourish, the plot is fairly standard. 96 percent? I don't think so.

Django Unchained

Django Unchained shows potential until the ending of the movie. At a very specific moment, Tarantino loses control of the film. As the movie derails into loud, annoying, over-the-top action, it loses any substance it may have earned. The film demonstrates the complete lack of respect Tarantino has for his audience. He expects people to enjoy gratuitous violence without any remote meaning. And sadly, looking at the success of the film, he's right.

Now it is not fair to say the whole movie was bad. While Django himself was boring and flat, Christoph Waltz was a joy to watch. But it was Leonardo DiCaprio who completely stole the show from the moment he was on screen. Great acting that fit the movie absolutely perfectly and created the best character in the film, by far.

Everyone else in the film was completely forgettable. And as to Samuel L Jackson, I was just confused. There were no explanations, no meaning, and nothing to take away from his character.

The only reason this film even deserves 2 stars is the fun, adventurous first three quarters of the movie. What could have been a four star western was wasted with boring, meaningless, violence. If westerns want to be taken seriously, it has to be done better than this.

Also, did I mention they put rap in it?
Rap, in a western. Abysmal.


A film that never ceases to intrigue. A thematic and tonal masterpiece.


A fantastic concept and smart world-building is shed aside for generic CGI action. The third act sinks this movie completely. A real let down considering the talent on board.

Gran Torino
Gran Torino(2009)

This movie is heart warming and heartbreaking simultaneously. This movie strikes perhaps the most difficult societal issue down with an axe and never misses. The social commentary found in this film is as relevant as it was seven years ago and will likely continue to be for some time to come as gang culture proliferates. Eastwood plays the role of a xenophobic korean war vet absolutely perfectly. His character is so clearly broken, making his redemption deep and impactful.Though the film is not without its flaws, the central message, the motifs of forgiveness, acceptance, and perhaps most importantly, human kinship, carry this film from start to finish. This is an eye-opening film, beautifully directed, and acted by Eastwood and the actual Hmong cast. The story is simply unforgettable. Please watch Gran Torino. It deserves to be seen not only by movie lovers. But humankind as a whole.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman V Superman is a mangled abomination of a film. I can't believe I'm saying this, but this movie is a complete disaster. It refuses to deliver proper backstory, character motivation, or meaningful discussion of the interesting themes it teases. This film is the epitome of style over substance. But what's infuriating about it most of all is its wasted potential.

The two greatest comic book heroes clashing head to head, with excellent castings of both Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, is a great premise, but somehow it doesn't deliver. The two protagonists are not the problem, it is the world surrounding them that utterly fails to impress.

The unforgivable failure of the character of Lex Luthor, turned into a rambling pseudo-intellectual twerp, and the shoehorned lacklustre appearance of Wonder Woman, and all the other unnecessary Justice League baggage weighs the already burgeoning film down.

None of the film feels remotely coherent with the first third consisting of sloppily edited together bits and pieces of backstory and plot devices that lack any kind of coherence. Then when the film settles in to the promised Batman vs Superman conflict, it feels completely half-baked. Though the actual battle is exciting, visually impressive, and by far the best part of the film, the inevitable resolution is so weak, it's laughable.

The only tension in the film, already flimsy to begin with, is removed completely as the film switches gears into a generic CGI-filled third act that manages to beat out Man of Steel (which I really liked!) in a bonanza of destruction. The final act of the film not only disappoints visually, with shockingly poor CGI, but fails to arrive at a remotely satisfying conclusion.

Batman v Superman repeats the lesson that studios should have learned many years ago but still refuse to listen. Quantity does not equal quality!


The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2

An unfulfilling end to a series that started with so much promise. Like the book, Mockingjay Part 2 is a tired and ultimately boring final chapter. It is difficult to pinpoint the film's precise flaws, it is mostly well directed and acted. But none of the impactful scenes really hit. The result is a completely unsatisfying conclusion, unfortunately.

The Hurricane

An excellent retelling of the rousing story of the unjust conviction of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter.

In Time
In Time(2011)

One of the most intriguing movies I have seen. In Time deserves a much higher rating than what it has been given. The concept of time as money is a warning of what could happen if money turned completely digital. Timberlake and Murphy fit perfectly as their opposing roles. This movie is incredible

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

A heart-filled comedy that perfectly balances the laughs and the drama. Everything about this movie works and the ending is bound to incite some teary eyes.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty

Beautiful visuals and a great heartfelt theme make up for the plot holes and slightly over the top characters

Inside Out
Inside Out(2015)

Inside Out is yet another Pixar masterpiece. This one pulls all the heavy weight emotional punches and invests you in the amazing inner world of humanity.
From now on, I'll likely be picturing my memories as little glass orbs coded with the appropriate colour of emotion. I loved this movie and you will too.


The inherently captivating and attention-worthy nature of Focus' premise keeps audiences entertained and excited throughout its runtime. However, the film fails to capitalize on its tantalizing climax and leaves a slightly underwhelming sentiment once the film wraps up. The individual components of focus are top notch. Each actor brings unique dimension to the film which never ceases it's simultaneous humour and intensity. Will Smith is great as the lead role and Margot Robbie offers unique charm to her slightly cliche role. The cinematography, directing, and soundtrack are excellent and keep the film feeling fresh. Overall, Focus has great performances and technical cinematography, though it's plot can drag at times and fails to fully capitalize on its premise. -7/10

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Despite a somewhat haphazard start, Kingsmen: Then


Christopher Nolan creates yet another masterpiece. Interstellar offers the perfect cinema-going experience and is incredible in every respect. The top-notch visuals are matched by amazing acting and incredible sound, music, and editing. Not only does Interstellar get As in technical achievements, the film's emotional and thought-provoking plot offers an entirely unique take on the human condition. The story is enthralling and resonating. Viewers will no doubt ponder the ideas Interstellar brings forth long after the final moments of the film fade to black. The film's near three hour runtime appears to be affected by the relativity it itself portrays in that it feels concise, well-crafted, and never bloated or plodding. Consistent edge of the seat moments and mesmerizing performances on all fronts make Interstellar the best film of the year by a long shot. It may in fact be the best film created in a long time and will likely be difficult to match in terms of scale, and technical and emotional ingenuity.

Superman III
Superman III(1983)

I didn't hate it. Actually I found it enjoyable and funny for the most part. The problem with this film was that it didn't know how to stop the humour and get serious. The first two Supermans had the right balance of humour and plot to make it fun to watch. This movie had too much silliness and not enough plot details. I liked the Superman vs Bad Superman scenes and Webster did fine as the villain. The big problem with this film was Richard Pryor. He trainwrecked this movie. Too many scenes focussed on him bumbling around. They could have cut a lot of his part and the film would have been a lot better. Lois is missing for most of the movie and Lana really isn't an acceptable replacement so I think that part failed as well. All in all, Superman III wasn't a very good movie but it wasn't that bad either.

Thor: The Dark World

An definitive improvement over the first in a visual sense. Thor 2 ups the stakes and provides solid, nonstop action throughout the film. However, in terms of plot, this Thor suffers from a narrative focussing far too much of its time on Jane Foster, whose character is dragged and pulled all over the universe like a rag doll. The best moments of the film are by far the one's with Loki and it only leaves the audience wanting more of him and less from the cringe inducing moments with Kat and her 'intern'. The dark elves work fine in providing some genuinely dangerous villains that the first Thor was lacking. Chris Hemsworth and the Asgardian cast work perfectly. Overall, a good superhero film, but not a must see.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the best Marvel movie. The movie, far darker in tone than any previous marvel film, exceeds expectations as a super hero movie and becomes a mesh of genres. Aspects of spy, political thrillers, and action are blended together. The movie is rich in plot, character development, and action. The winter soldier is menacing and truly terrifying and the underlying messages of the film are undeniably great. Chris Evans is terrific as is Scarlett Johansson. Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury is extremely fleshed out as well as the Shield Organization. Robert Redford is incredibly good too and presents the great message of the film. The action is heart pounding and fast paced. Captain America does some amazing things with his shield, albeit not entirely realistically, but still awesome. One character that felt a little weak was nick fury's assistant girl who played a considerable part in the film but was never really explained. Overall, Capt. 2 was incredible and exhilarating and a must see.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

No doubt hampered by the part 1 blues, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 succeeds with the material it has available. The film's technical aspects and emotions are firing at all cylinders and bring what is expected of the franchise. The film's downfall is its plodding pace and seeming lack of purpose. It lacks traditional structure which leads to an unfulfilling climax and an ending that leaves much to be desired.

Guardians of the Galaxy

The rag tag group of unsuper heroes, the Guardians of the Galaxy, create such a great vibe in such a short amount of time. The film's characters are all hilariously lovable and are acted to perfection. Though it doesn't reach the epic heights of the Avengers, it doesn't need to. Guardians of the Galaxy is a great film in its own right. Without any films to establish its characters, it succeeds as an origin story for all five characters. In some ways, the film beats out the Avengers. However, Ronan the Destroyer is no Loki. Nevertheless, the film is really great. Go see it, you'll have a blast.


An interesting premise is butchered by laughable dialogue and poor special effects. Hancock could have been much better than it is.

The Dark Knight

There is so much to be said about this movie. Bale - excellent. Oldman - excellent. Freeman and Caine do their jobs as mentors. Eckhart - awesome. Glynnenal (no idea how to spell it) - good. And Ledger's joker was beyond amazing. Nolan makes the second film of his trilogy incredible. The complete departure from the conventional superhero storyline makes for such a good film. And the ending, one of the best movie endings ever.

The Hangover
The Hangover(2009)

An over the top comedy. It is hilarious and stupid and somehow, I like it. Surprisingly good cinematography too.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

An improvement over the first, but Catching Fire is still hindered by some of the same storytelling issues found in the first film. Not knowing what is going on inside Katniss' head makes here decision making seem distant and removes the audience from the story. However, the overall storyline is far more compelling, as the stakes are much higher and the games are much grander. The cinematography is greatly improved as well. A much watch for fans of the first film.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

As I get older this movie only gets worse. As a little kid I loved it. The lightsaber fight at the end is cool but once you look beyond all the eye candy, this movie doesn't hold up at all to the Star Wars legacy. The story makes absolutely no sense. I could go into detail but this video explains it much better:

The Hangover Part II

It's not even half as good as the first movie. Why? It's the same exact thing, just less funny.

Batman Begins

A refreshing break from the usual bright and happy superhero films. Christopher Nolan shows a darker side to super hero films. The movie really shows how Batman 'begins' and sets up The Dark Knight well. However, it also gives TDKR much of its unexplained plot points. Bale is the best Bruce Wayne/Batman and the origin story is awesome. I thought Neeson played his usual role as mentor well. It was awesome to see Gordon as not a chubby guy who can't do anything but as an actual working policeman! Nolan delivered a great Batman movie that would only be followed by better. Also Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard made an amazing soundtrack for this movie.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

The series is going the way of Shrek

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1

This movie is really good because of it's emotional depth. Sure it's Harry Potter but it is also a really good drama.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2

I had extremely high hopes for this film and I was slightly disappointed. While still an excellent film , Part II suffers from too much CGI and a crazy finale that is filled with way too many contrasting emotions. It is in this film that finishes the 8 part series and I loved every second of it. Harry Potter 7 - Part 2 is still an entertaining and exciting film, and it provides a satisfying conclusion to the franchise, but I don't think it comes to the same heights as the previous two.

Ender's Game
Ender's Game(2013)

Enders game has potential but its underdeveloped setting and strange yet obvious plot twists leave it less exciting than it could have been.

The Amazing Spider-Man

Strong performances by Garfield and Stone keep the humor up. Even though many critics think its too early for a reboot. I think it takes a new direction to a more technologically savvy peter parker. And unlike the original Spiderman, It has more sub plots that keep you wondering what will happen next. It stumbles over some of its more serious moments, and verges on exceeding into cheesy territory, but good performances from Garfield, Stone, and Leary keep the movie going.


Elysium's strengths lie in its visuals. The effects are top notch and has an incredibly interesting premise. However, the movie loses some points for the somewhat forced ending. Still, it is an extremely entertaning sci-fi action flick.


Prisoners is a movie like no other. The film is gripping, thrilling, and by far the best movie of the year.

Superman Returns

An unneeded movie that has little to do with the Reeve Superman series. Kevin Spacey and Amy Adams are good in their roles but Routhe can't bring Reeve's charm to his character resulting in a very dull Superman.

Catch Me If You Can

Really funny and based on a true story. That's cool.


Christopher Nolan does it again. This movie is so interesting and so well done, it puts almost every other movie to shame.

Mr. Deeds
Mr. Deeds(2002)

Adam Sandler when he was actually funny, this one isn't quite Happy Gilmore though.

No Strings Attached

It's funny but not great. The two leads are good but a boring supporting cast leaves the movie a little underdeveloped.

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

I turned it off after 10 minutes, gotta be something better on TV.

30 Minutes or Less

I know I shouldn't like this movie so much, but I do.

Alice in Wonderland

While coming from great source material, this Alice in Wonderland suffers from CGI overload. I understand the world is supposed to be fantasy but in this case, it takes you out of the movie. My recommendation? Stick to the books.


This movie is a lot of fun for all ages. Though it's premise is preposterous, you can't help but like Up's fun story. With some good lessons packed in it as well, it would do anyone good by seeing it.


While it isn't Rocky, Warrior comes very close to perfection. With two great protagonists, both likable in their own ways, Warrior shows that movies don't have to always be good versus evil. The film's final act is so emotional and so gripping you can't help but love it. Warrior is a not only for people who like UFC or any of those kind of sports (I never watch them). It is for people like powerful dramas.

Star Trek Into Darkness

Admittedly, I am no Star Trek fan. I never really got into the old movies and TV shows. However, looking at this movie purely as a Sci-Fi adventure, it's really good. Great special effects and a good villain, Star Trek Into Darkness is an entertaining and exciting film. While people say it 'butchered' the source material, I don't really care. The movie works for what it is, even if it isn't quite as good as its predecessor.

The Wolverine

The Wolverine is surprisingly good comic book movie. After the travesty that is X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I did not have high hopes going into this movie. I was surprised by a excellent story of redemption and a great performance by Hugh Jackman. While the villains in this movie may be underwhelming, the protagonists are so likable that you cannot help being sucked in to the movie. The cinematography and special effects in this movie are top notch, but it is Hugh Jackman's wounded portrayal of the Wolverine that makes this movie.

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol

This movie is surprising great. Sporting an excellent cast and a solid story, MIGP contains all the typical Mission Impossible stunts but connects it with an interesting story. It`s also entertaining and fun. A great summer blockbuster...that was released in winter.


Its no good, don`t bother seeing it unless you`re a teenager girl who likes horribly acted teenage dramas.

Wedding Crashers

Hilarious. I don`t care if its completely predictable, Wedding Crashers is so funny, you don`t even remember the film`s flaws when you`re laughing your head off. Wilson and Vaughn show their great comedic chemistry. It`s pure gold.

The Internship

Extremely predictable and basically a Google ad, The Internship doesn't look so hot on paper. However, its two stars carry the movie through its predictability and give it a satisfying conclusion. This movie isn't a breakthrough in any way but is still funny and charismatic.

Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)

Iron Man 3 is funny and generally entertaining but lacks the originality of the first film. The plot is weak and completely unrealistic. Overall, Iron Man 3 is a witty, action-filled, blockbuster that will entertain most audiences. Don't expect anything remotely meaningful or realistic and you will not be disappointed.

The Hunger Games

Not a bad adaptation but it fails to capture much of what made the book good. The PG-13 rating also made the action scenes less enjoyable with the camera shaking around like mad.


Superman is one of the best Superhero films of all time. Not only did it manage to capture the hero in a way that has never been surpassed. It also delivered a good plot, good humour, and great supporting roles from Margot Kidder and Gene Hackman. And who could forget Otis, probably the greatest sidekick screw ups of all time.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

The best Indiana Jones movie, or at least my favourite one.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

It tries to be more epic than the first movie but I found that a lot of the detective partsd that I loved in the first film did not return in the second.

Shrek 2
Shrek 2(2004)

It doesn't have the same charm as the first movie but is still a decent sequel.

Shrek the Third

Ugh, this movie is awful. How could they mess up Shrek this badly.

Shrek Forever After

It's over! Stop making Shrek movies Dreamworks!!!

Source Code
Source Code(2011)

Wow, what a surprisingly good sci-fi movie. What an great concept. It's no Inception but still really good




The only problem with this movie is Green Goblin. His character isn't believable and the voice just ruins it.

Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 2(2004)

One villain is enough. Doc Oc makes the best Spiderman villain to date. This movie is Spiderman at its best. Better than the Amazing reboot for sure.

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

I don't even know if this movie is better than Episode 1 but at least the plot makes slightly more sense. However, the love story between Anakin and Padme is SO BAD. I don't believe a word that comes out of either of their mouths. Everything is overacted between the two. Why couldn't this movie focus all of it's time on Obi-wan's story. He really carries this movie and saves it from being a complete failure. I found that every time he was in the scene, I was interested in what was happening. But when he wasn't there, the movie just sucked.

Captain America: The First Avenger

This movie is great. I loved the 1940s setting.


Hilarious and awesome.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

I liked the first film better, this one is just lame.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

The Clone Wars suck. Star wars turned cartoon looks awful. Couldn't they at least make the characters look like they do from the movies? And what is this movie anyway? How does this even remotely relate to the Episode 2 and 3? Does it explain anything? Is there a point that this film needs to exist? No, it's just a lame cash grab that shows the greediness of Lucasfilm. JUST LEAVE STAR WARS ALONE. IT HAS ALREADY BEEN RUINED ENOUGH.

X-Men: The Last Stand

What a waste. This X-men movie is nothing more than a CGI-fest with crappy storytelling and impossible to understand characters. The movie tries to be epic but only ends up feeling cheesy. This is probably one of the worst Marvel movies made in the last decade, except for Origins, that sucked even more. One thing that really ticks me off is how it ruins the X-men timeline, in the scene where Charles and Magneto visit young Jane, they are both old guys but he's walking around! It makes no sense, both the comics and X-men: First Class show that Charles was handicapped before he became bald Professor X

X-Men Origins - Wolverine

This doesn't even have a spot in the X-men timeline. It's basically boring, familiar storyline from the previous films rehashed into some sort of prequel. The effects look cheap and the plot is thin. Personally, I liked The Last Stand more than this primarily because it at least had high quality action sequences. This movie is bound toend up in the 5 dollar bin at Walmart.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Incredible beginning to what is sure to an amazing trilogy. I have no idea how this movie is worse than the Lord of the Rings. I found it to be just as engaging and it really brought Middle Earth back to life. One complaint I would have with this movie is that the characters are a bit flat. Most of the jokes with the dwarves have more to do with their physical appearance than their characters. That is to say if they even have characters. Only two of the dwarves had definite characters. While most of the others simply molded into the background. However the sheer epicness of the movie made me forget the flaws of this film.

X-Men: First Class

The perfect prequel with an awesome plot. Henry Jackman's soundtrack is killer. This movie s definitely the best X-men film to-date. Can't wait for Days of Future Past

X2: X-Men United

Blends the intriguing story line that drove the first movie with perfectly captured action making a better X-Men film than its predecessor. The characters are stronger, the dialogue is sharper, the action is more believable, and the plot is just awesome. All the great elements come together perfectly in this film and would not to be topped until First Class came around.

Batman Forever

Batman Forever - I'm guessing Joel Schumacher had to come up with something on the spot because that's a terrible name for a Batman movie! Val Kilmer makes a rather boring Bruce Wayne and the love interest Nicole Kidman is completely unbelievable. Jim Carrey is the only high point of this movie. Tommy Lee Jones is completely wasted. All he seemed to do was act like the joker laughing hysterically. It did have its entertaining parts, but also its boring parts. The climax of this movie is ridiculous and both villains lose in ridiculous ways. But it is an acceptable movie, somewhat.


Good historical drama, bit heavy on the dialogue though

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Emotionally thrilling, a great conclusion to an incredible trilogy.

Sherlock Holmes

An awesome new take on the classic detective, Sherlock Holmes does everything right. It comes off as on of my favourite movies off all time.

Man on a Ledge

Good idea, good plot, good filmwork, BAD acting - ruined the film

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

A little bit more interesting, at least the story had a plot twist. Those don't happen very often in this series.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

No coherent plot, no interesting characters, nothng but high budget action sequences.


A cool movie to be sure but the movie focuses way too much on the kid's story. I really could care less about him. This toe of this movie is uneven and the plot is ridiculous. I wanted to see Autobots vs Decepticons battle it out. But no, the movie has to focus on the kid. Very disappointing movie.


The best Bond film of all time. Skyfall perfectly blends classic '60s Bond with today's computer savvy age. The climax of the film is incredibly unique, beyond description.

Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump(1994)

Incredible storytelling. Definitely a timeless film that encompasses american pop culture from the '50s to the '90s.


Argo is one of the better movies of 2012. It does a great job showing the late 70s. I loved seeing the old technology, especially the old cars. It also mixes real footage of the crisis and recreated scenes really well. The characters are a bit flat, but as almost all of them are real people it is understandable why they aren't shown with much depth. Overall a solid 4 star movie that sticks to the facts and makes it suspenseful and thrilling.


Great action thriller. JGL really stars in this one.

Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3(2010)

A surprisingly good film. Pixar shows that it still has some life left


The best Pixar movie to date

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

My favourite book and movie of the Harry Potter franchise

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

More storytelling goes on in Phoenix. It begins to set the stage for the ultimate showdown. Better than #4

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Has its highs and lows but overall a good HP movie

The Goonies
The Goonies(1985)

The go to kids classic. This movie is a trip down memory lane for adults and still entertaining for kids. A timeless hit

Ghostbusters 2

Couldn't capture the magic of its predecessor. Still pretty entertaining though

Ghostbusters (1984 Original)

Ghostbusters, an unforgettable classic.


A good family flick, even if the storyline is preposterous

Fantastic Four

I liked it, a typical loose plotted superhero film. Not as bad as most people make it out to be.

Facing Ali
Facing Ali(2009)

Well done documentary of the legendary boxer

Ernest Goes to Camp

Moderately funny but has a way overused storyline

Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules

An definitive improvement over the first movie


Pandemic movies are always awesome, but this one takes the cake.

Disney's A Christmas Carol

Well done animated version of the classic story

Mr. Bean's Holiday

This is pure comedy gold. A refreshing break from Mr Bean in England. A brilliant idea that is executed well. Atkinson still has Bean's part nailed.

Johnny English Reborn

Better than the original and incredibly funny. Atkinson does it again

Johnny English

Awesome Bond spoof. Atkinson does it again.


Hilarious movie, though some of the jokes are used from the TV show Bean has enough plot and enough wacky Rowan Atkinson to make a funny movie. Why all of Atkinson's movies get low ratings, I have no clue. This one is a classic and a definite watch for anyone who likes a good laugh

Batman & Robin

At least the title is relevant... But other than that, THIS MOVIE SUCKED. Nothing more to say.

Batman Returns

Darker, more thought provoking, and wackier, Batman Returns makes the perfect sequel. I was definitely sad there is no sequel to this movie. The penguins waddling around was stupid but the 3 villains were excellent. It was my favourite batman movie until Begins.


The first time I ever saw Batman was in this movie. The opening scene where he beats up the two crooks is unforgettable. However the rest of the movie focuses too much on the joker. The scenes where he kills his boss are unnecessay. It could have been an off screen death. Also Bruce Wayne gets too much screen time and Batman doesn't get enough. The movie is also really outdated. But it was still entertaining and fun. Batman fans and Jack Nicholson fans will enjoy this movie but Tim Burton fans will have to wait for the sequel...

Back to the Future Part III

Slower and less plot heavy than the other films. BTTF 3 is fun and really enjoyable if you like westerns. But for those who don't like boring romances than this isn't for you. I wanted to like this movie more but it isn't that good. It really feels like a step down from number 2. It felt to slow and unnatural. There was no hurry to get things done like in the first two. Marty and Doc's chemistry isn't as good and the lady really ruins the film. I found her annoying and dragged the plot on and on. I was definitely disappointed by this movie and really wouldn't suggest it as a stand alone movie. But it is a must watch if you've seen the cliff hanger ending of part II.

Back to the Future Part II

Hasn't aged as well as the first movie but still great fun. The plot is a bit bloated but the actors keep the movie together. Biff really shines in this movie and I thought the alternate 1985 part was really cool. It was unexpected and really made the movie. A must watch for Back to the Future fans but you may find it lacks the charm of the first film.

Back to the Future

Back to the Future incorporates science fiction, comedy, action, romance, and drama all into one awesome movie. Intricate storytelling by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale make this movie the wonder that it is. It is truly a timeless classic. Michael J Fox is at his best in this movie. Christopher Lloyd is hilarious as the Doc. The idea of going back to the 50s is great. This movie is one of my all time favourites.

American Graffiti

Classic, entertaining, and pure fun, Graffiti shows the American culture of the sixties. The storytelling was great. The way each character's story fit together made this movie comedy gold. Pre Star Wars Lucas showed that he did have a funny side with this movie.

Air Force One

A movie that I didn't have high hopes for but was amazing. Ford and Oldman were brilliant and the supporting cast was excellent. It was fast paced yet easy to follow. A great action thriller definitely wort watching.

17 Again
17 Again(2009)

Funny at times but its formula is well worn. The predictability of the movie makes it somewhat dull. Only worth watching if you're a big Zac Efron fan.

Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Superman IV, this movie is really the bottom of the barrel. The story is the only part of this movie that is any good. Nuclear Man! I mean who can go wrong with that villain. You got Luthor and his weird nephew (no Otis, that really brought this movie down. You can't have Luthor without Otis) creating Nuclear Man to kill Superman. All the while the Daily Planet is going through some changes. This is all fine and dandy. Some kid wants Superman to rid the world of Nuclear weapons. So Superman does it. By then, the movie is getting boring, already 45 minutes in and no Nuclear man. At least the other Superman films had some disaster that Superman had to fix but not in this one. Then Nuclear Man comes and it is revealed that he cannot function without light. I thought that was really cheap because all superman would have to do is lock him in the closet or something. So Superman and Nuclear guy meet and have a really cheesy chase scene with the low budget of this movie really showing. Then its just random acts a violence by the villain. Reminiscent of Superman II only with a much worse execution. Then Superman gets sick and the movie gets boring and full of plot holes. Why doesn't Nuclear Man just kill him? It makes no sense. So Lois has to help him out and then Superman goes and fights Nuclear Man again (more cheesy graphics) and dumps nuclear man on the moon in an elevator. Thinking his work is done Superman turns away. But no the Elevator wasnt light proof so the sun woke Nuclear Man up and he pounds Superman into the moon. By this point the movie is beyond salvaging. Superman doesnt die and he goes and dumps nuclear man into a nuclear plant and that's that. A complete wast of 90 minutes. This movie was terrible and worst of all it ended Christopher Reeve's career as Superman.

Superman II
Superman II(1981)

Delivering more action that its predecessor, Superman II is action packed and funny for the most part. The part that really dragged the movie down for me was the Superman becoming human for Lois Lane sub plot. It seemed silly for the movie to go back and forth from Zod destroying cities and taking over the world (very entertaining) to Superman eating dinner with Lois. I found it silly and disjointed. But once Superman returns and fights Zod. the movie saves its slef and earns a solid B.

Marvel's The Avengers

The Avengers lives up to my expectations. It gives the audience a two and a half hour thrill ride and doesn't forget to add a bit of plot here and there. Although the climax was a bit disappointing, the Avengers does it's job. The major problem I had with the film was Loki. He seemed tough, then weak, then tough again. The whole alien invasion was overused and predictable. Avengers had good action and humour but not good story.

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises meets my expectations, then exceeds them, and then blows them out of proportion. It is my favourite of the trilogy and may just be the greatest movie I have ever seen. Bale gives his best performance of Bruce Wayne. Hathaway is awesome, Hardy gives a great physical performance but he is a little difficult to hear. The biggest surprise for me is Levitt. He definetly plays his role to perfection. The rest of the cast is awesome with every role memorable. I think this film is more about the first film then the second in the long run. I think it is also the opposite of the first which was about fear. I think this one was abour hope. Especially in the jail scenes which I thought were excellent. The fights between Batman and Bane were incredible. Critics may say Rises didnt quite live up to The Dark Knight but I think it was much bigger and much better.
