Rating History

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior
50 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The insanity behind road rage reaches a high note in this electrifying, action-packed thrill of a ride. The aerial and ground-level cinematography captures the intensity and blends it with the environment. It may not have as personal a touch as the first, but it still evokes an emotional response particularly in the third act.

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials
57 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It seems today's teen post-apocalyptic films end up the same way. We've got your typical young cast that falls short on delivering emotionally energized performances. We have a story that would be interesting if its first act didn't skip development for the sake of jumping into its quick pacing. It is occasionally thrilling and sparingly careful with its subject matter but it doesn't really live up to being the journey it wants you to invest in.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A film that combines smooth and clear cinematography, lush landscapes, drama that is emotional and engaging, and choreography that is exciting and electrifying. The subtleties of sword-on-sword fighting with the details of specific martial arts styles blend together to evoke an emotional representation of the characters. It's well-shot, well-directed, well-edited, and, well, superb cinema.

The Expendables 3
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The Expendables series was intended to be a final, exciting send off, a mark left, by famous old action stars. It was supposed to be traditional action with cool characters and a certain nostalgic joy in watching this powerhouse cast come together and beat and shoot and blow things up. What we ended up with is perhaps best shown in this third installment of the series: uninteresting or lack of story, no memorable characters, cheesy and lame dialogue, a flawed narrative structure, and an overall joyless execution. The only noteworthy qualities this film had were occasional eye candy shots and its more head-on tackling of the theme of old vs new.

Alien (1979)
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Just as scary and atmospheric as the original. There are moments where it was understandable to remove some of the shots and extras, but there are also some scenes where it heightens the scariness of the scene and provides even more insight to the mysterious creature.
