Movie Ratings and Reviews

Hardcore Henry

An hour and a half of pure adrenaline, non-stop, gory as hell action, which truly is enough substance to make Hardcore Henry work. (A-) 8/10

Nocturnal Animals

I had to take a couple days to process this movie. From the opening shot of this film you can already predict on what kind of film "Nocturnal Animals" is going to be. Now a forward warning for people who plan on seeing this movie, this is an extremely hard to watch film. No spoilers of course but the first scene in the movie is a bit hard to watch and some of the people I went to watch the movie wanted to walk out of the theater at that moment. If you don't like watching movies with hard to watch imagery and really tough subject matters, I would not recommend seeing this. But for people who really want to see a pretty much, perfectly directed art-film that will get under your skin, "Nocturnal Animals" is a must see. I like to describe this movie as a mix of "No Country For Old Men" and "Gone Girl," and surprisingly I found myself enjoying this film just as much as I enjoyed those two films. Right off the bat, all the performances in the film are fantastic. The stand out performances for me was for sure Jake Gyllenhaal (who really needs to be nominated for an Oscar by now), Amy Adams, and surprisingly Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who gave a really convincing performance that was very chilling. But my favorite aspect about this film for sure has to be the direction. This film is suspenseful as hell. And the imagery is beautiful and there isn't a scene in this film where I felt bored even though the film is slow paced. Sometimes slow pace can work and sometimes it can't and in this case it definitely work. I most certainly also have to tell you, that this film is so unique. I'll just say for the sake of no spoilers, that there are two stories within' this movie that each have similar connections that really play off a strong theme in the movie that in the end really makes you think. This film makes you think about hard and terrible events that happen in the world today and they really make you process the themes behind them. Overall guys Nocturnal Animals blew me away. This is by far one of the best movies of the year, it's definitely my favorite mystery, drama of the year, and if you're into powerful, intense thrillers that are artsy but not over the top artsy, I think you'll love Nocturnal Animals like I did. For me, overall, Nocturnal Animals gets a score of 10/10 and a grade of an A+.

Buried
Buried(2010)
½

A tense and emotional film that pulls off its singular setting throughout the entirety of the film. (A-) 9/10

Suicide Squad

Man, I don't think that I've been more pumped for a film since Star Wars Episode VII. Most of the marketing for Suicide Squad has been extremely good and has kept me pumped since 2015. Now the big question is, is it any good? Well, overall it's enjoyable, but it does not exceed expectations in many ways. I really hoped that this film would make up for the disappointing and very flawed film Batman V Superman, and all though it is better than it, it didn't prove to me that the DCEU is trying it's absolute best. Now before I get into the negatives about the film, I'm going to talk about the pros about this film. First or all let me get this out of the way, Jared Leto as the Joker was absolutely great. I loved his performance he wasn't trying to copy Heath Ledger or Nicholson he was his own unique gangster, mob Joker that really caught my interest. Now this does lead me into one con that I will talk about towards the end of this review. Deadshot and Harley Quinn, my gosh were probably the best characters in the film. I loved seeing these two on screen they were portrayed perfectly especially Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Diablo, Captain Boomerang, and Rick Flag were also great characters. Killer Croc, Katana, and Slipknot were on and off characters to me, sometimes they had fine moments and sometimes they didn't. Amanda Waller I believe would've been a great character if she didn't make some certain choices in the film that honestly made no sense or were never explained. Now the action in the film was pretty fun for the most part. I liked the fighting I like the flashback character origin stories that all happen at the beginning of the film which are by far the most entertaining aspects of the film. I also liked how there was a lot of really funny humor in the film as well which was definitely a plus. The films first two acts are pretty entertaining for the most part I enjoyed them. Oh Yah, Batman killed it once again in the film like he did in BVS. Now that I've got most of the Pros out of the way it's time to get into the negatives of the film. This films editing honestly was pretty bad. I know the film had to do last minute film shootings and editing and I think that might have made the film take a turn for the worst. The film is pretty fast paced which may seem like a good thing, but it really wasn't cause the editing was so choppy that there was no breathing time for me to process what was happening on screen. The editing sometimes really confused and took me out of this film. Also, the soundtrack is a great soundtrack but most of the music interjected into the film was so loud and so out of place that it distracted me from many scenes, one in particular which I will not spoil which contains the Joker that really threw me off. Also another con is the main finale battle of the film was extremely terrible. It almost reminded me of the ending of the new Fantastic Four, it was obviously not as bad but it was extremely lazily made. Also there is so much scenes that felt like they were missing from the film that the plot became extremely confusing and stupid at times and almost made no sense at all which really told me that the people working on the plot of the film did a poor job. There's also some over- dubbing for the voices of the characters that you can tell were voice-overs which really took me out of the film one in particular with the Joker that almost made me laugh cause it was so badly dubbed. Also, no spoilers of course Enchantress and the villain of this film were done very poorly. Enchantress was a fine character at the beginning but slowly morphed into a cheesy character and the villain was so cliché and lame which really bugged me. Some of the line delivery in this film was sometimes extremely out of place and truly cringe- worthy even though the majority of the film does have decent dialogue. Its just that some of the poorly done dialogue probably had to due with the factor of the editing that made it seem poorly done. And a huge disappointing factor of the film is that the Joker is barely even in the film. He's literally interjected into 30 second mini scenes throughout the entire runtime of the film. My final flaw with this film is the emotional levels they try to present in this film. There is so many scenes in this movie that try to be emotional and try to touch your heart when really it just comes out as either confusing or extremely messy. I do enjoy how they tried to bring heart into this film, but some of it was done very strangely, and not in a positive way for sure. Overall though I think if you go into this film with an open mind knowing that this film is going to be an average fun blockbuster film you really will enjoy it. If you're going to go into it thinking its going to be the DC film that saves the DCEU and "Oh this is going to be a awesome film," you will most likely hate this film. To me this film is overall a disappointment but it is still a somewhat enjoyable. Suicide Squad is a film with an extreme amount of editing problems and flaws, but it has just enough action and likable characters that it can be enjoyed as an okay, summer blockbuster popcorn-flick. Overall Grade: C+ Score: 5.5/10

Shut In
Shut In(2016)

I'm going to be honest here in defense of my own self righteous, that I went to see this movie cause my friends wanted to see it. I skipped my chance to see Arrival for this movie and I wish I had gone and seen that instead cause this film might just be the hugest disaster of 2016 I've seen this year so far. I'll also add, that all my friends after the movie ended, thought the film was a waste of time, boring, and overall immensely stupid. I guess the only positive I have for this movie is that Charlie Heaton's actually tried to act really well in this film but his character just came off as confusing due to an awful script. Also the cinematography in this film was alright and sometimes beautiful, but cinematography is one of those factors that really don't affect my opinion about a movie, if the overall film is layered with negative factors. Naomi Watts' character in this film was so bland and one dimensional. Her character made so many cliche, stupid, horror movie decisions in this movie and had emotions that were conveyed extremely poorly. The movie takes about an hour to actually get semi-interesting since the first hour is pretty much really bad exposition scenes that don't really have anything to do with the revealing plot at all. This movie also relies on something I hate a lot about certain horror movies: "jump scares." I can't stand them. Literally the only scares in this movies are mainly false scares that aren't even remotely scary. Another negative I just have to mention about this film is the twist ending. Of course I won't spoil it, but, it is a laughably bad twist. What I hate the most about this revealing twist is it has nothing to do with the events that have led up to it, it just came out of nowhere. Readers, if you feel like torturing yourself with a film that is extremely boring for the 1st two acts and has extremely bad script writing, go right ahead and watch this "movie", but if you want to save money and time, just skip this movie for sure. I'm going to give this movie a D- and a score of a 1.5/10.

Don't Breathe
½

I'm not the hugest horror movie buff, but when it comes to horror films like The Shining or Cabin In The Woods just no it incredibly increases my liking of the horror genre. Now rarely today will I find a horror film that I will extremely like or even like at all. It's almost now a 1/3 ratio were I'll actually go into a horror movie and find it to be a decent film. Don't Breathe not only expands a new level of intensity in horror or thriller films, but if it makes enough money it could inspire new waves of actually really good horror movies. Don't Breathe blew me away I was so immersed into this film that I almost felt like I was in the horrible situation that the characters in the film were in. There was so many times were I was on the edge of my seat and even sometimes holding in my own breath when the actors were holding their breaths. The premise of this film isn't very new it's kind of borrowed off of films like Panic Room but I think with horror films like The Conjuring, it's okay to borrow off cliche premises if the film itself is done right.
The two main characters played by Jane Levy and Dylan Minnette have great character development. When a horror movie gives characters good development and likability it just makes the film way better. Cause now that I have these two characters that I actually care about it'll make me care about what will possibly happen too them throughout the runtime of the film. Now Stephen Lang's character I thought was very menacing as this Blind man. He had a great back story and he was a threat to be reckoned with. Also the way the camera focuses or moves around from scene to scene or place to place is done so well that it brings the intensity level to a more even pace. There's even a lot of long shots in this film that kept me on the edge of my seat. Now I do have one complaint with this film and that is about, no spoilers of course, the ending. The ending I think went on for too long it could've cut off at least 15 minutes earlier and the film would've been better. The film just kept dragging on and it felt unnecessary. Also just a heads up if you haven't yet seen the trailer for this film, I recommend not seeing it cause it actually spoils part of the movie. Other than that I had such an amazing time with Don't Breathe and if your a fan of the horror genre, definitely go into it and if you are interested in having a exciting experience at the movies go and see this film. This is easily one of my favorite films this year and I'm going to give Don't Breathe a grade of an A and a IMDb score of a 9/10.

The Lone Ranger
½

Overall the action keeps the film enjoyable enough for fans of Pirates of the Caribbean, but it's plot and pacing is overall a mess. (B-)

Deadpool
Deadpool(2016)

Not only is it funny as hell, It sets a new standard for superhero films since it's so damn unique. (A+)

Fantastic Four

I once thought that we can now live in a world were superhero movies would never be so awful as films like Batman and Robin. Well, Fantastic Four is pure proof that my theory is wrong. (D-)

The Nice Guys

The Nice Guys is a film that intelligently hearkens back to the 70s buddy comedy genre, and should extremely be recognized by Hollywood and most movie goers today. (A)

Spectre
Spectre(2015)
½

It's most definitely disappointing in every way from the first 2 boring acts, but it still boasts solid 007 formula in the last act with a stunning performance by Christoph Waltz. (B)

Goosebumps
Goosebumps(2015)
½

Goosebumps is literally everything it had to be, simple, fun, and nostalgic for ones who group of with the series. (B)

Jurassic World

Even with its top-notch special effects and fun plot, Jurassic World fails in most areas when trying to pay respect to the original film that started it all and even the 2nd one. (B-)

Hot Fuzz
Hot Fuzz(2007)

It's convoluted plot and solid comedy is what makes this buddy cop film fun and unique. (B+)

Pan
Pan(2015)

Pan is most definitely the worst adaptation of a Peter Pan film, and literally fails on ever level to be remotely entertaining or at least decent. (D-)

Minions
Minions(2015)

Minions is a disappointing and unnecessary prequel to the much better Despicable Me films. (C+)

Dredd
Dredd(2012)

Even though Dredd is short on plot, it's supported by unique and beautiful graphics and some of the most top-notch action of 2012. (A-)

The Visit
The Visit(2015)
½

This is going to be a very quick review for "The Visit". I extremely enjoyed this film! This proves M Night Shyamalan can still be a talented film maker. After The Village, Lady in the Water, The Happening, The Last Airbender, and After Earth I pretty much gave up on seeing anything impressive from him. I was wrong, this film is actually super enjoyable and I had to blast. First thing you have to know about going into this film is that it is Hilarious! I found it more of a comedy more than a horror. The little boy in this film made me laugh everytime he came on screen. This film is very campy like Evil Dead 2 or Scream but the comedy is took to an even higher level. The found footage in this film works because it really feels like this girl wants to make this documentary, plus the lack of music in the film made it feel even more realistic! All the performances in this film are great, the film is capable of being very humorous and tense at once, and the twist and turns that happen in the film are smart and intelligent. Im going to give the Visit a overall score of:

(A-) & (9/10)

Please check out this film I highly recommend it for comedy lovers and people looking for a new take on the found footage genre. Glad to have you back Shyamalan!

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

Way to underrated, Return of the Jedi is the perfect conclusion to the original franchise with unforgettable sequences. (A+)

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

Possibly the greatest sci-fi classic out there, Star Wars is amazing and spectacular in every way. (A+)

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
½

Maybe even worse than Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones once again is another disappointing Star Wars prequel. (C-)

District 9
District 9(2009)

Visually dazzling and quite unique, District 9 is just almost a classic masterpiece. (A-)

Smosh: The Movie
½

It's Completely Unexpected and Represents Smosh's Unique Talent
I was quite surprised by the film because I didn't expect Smosh to compel a film that wasn't too similar to any average day YouTube video. The film actually contains a very unique plot line in which Anthony and Ian have to go into a multi-dimensional YouTube universe. The film works, while keeping some of Smosh's well known YouTube elements like, the cheesy special effects and use of prop manikins for some scenes. While using these elements they were able to make a well crafted film that some viewers may find quite unique in a well designed way.

Pros - (Uses the Same Elements From There YouTube Videos and they Fit Well In the Film) (An actual heartfelt concept hidden, which includes a well thought out message/moral) (At some parts, pretty funny) (A perfect reputation of Smosh's talent) (Very entertaining throughout the film) (Uses YouTube elements VERY VERY cleverly. *Huge Thumbs up!*) (YouTube cameos are GREAT *especially the Jenna Marbles one*)

Cons - (Some Jokes are Dull) (Some concepts are a bit cheesy and feel cliché) (Acting isn't too Great *You can tell it was probably hard for the Smosh cast to switch from YouTube standard acting, to movie production acting*)

Overall, I really enjoyed the film. I can see it's a film not for all audiences, maybe just for Smosh fans and a few comedic lovers. I was really impressed though how the film actually turned out. Really proud of you guys! (Anthony Padilla, Ian Hickox, and the Rest of the Smosh Crew!)

Overall Grade - (B) (7.5/10)

(By the Way, there's an end credits scene! Don't miss out on it!)

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

It has its "Indiana Jones Feel Moments", but it's overall a huge let down film for Indy fans, but on it's own, it's actually a decent film. I mean, If you ignore the abundance of flaws in the end. (B-)

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade could just be the best of the franchise, from its more enjoyable cast, crazy action sequences which we have come to know and love, and its interesting premise. (A+)

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Pretty underrated, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is more than an acceptable sequel, even if it doesn't equal up to its predecessor. (A)

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Unique and Brilliant in every way, this film proves that Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg can pull off something incredibly innovated that will influence many future movies. (A+)

Dark and Gruesome, Silence of the Lambs has such a in dept mystery that it will leave viewers with chills some in a terrifying way, and some in a satisfying way. (A+)

Django Unchained

Tarantino's best since Pulp Fiction, Django has some incredible performances from Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio, and is most definitely the best film of 2012 by a longshot. (A+)

The Shawshank Redemption

Some of the best narrative storytelling every put to film with solid entertainment that will suck all viewers alike into the film in a odd but charming way. (A+)

Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction(1994)

½

Quite boring and slow at the beginning and middle, You're Next later on proves its worthiness from it's unique and darkly humored ending that will surprisingly leave most viewers with satisfaction. (B-)

Oculus
Oculus(2014)

A greatly directed thriller, Oculus is a horror movie that won't get out of your head for a while from its well executed storytelling. (B+)

More of a parody than a horror, Scream is able to twist and turn in many ways for all horror fans to love. (A)

½

Avengers Age of Ultron is a worthy entry in the Marvel cannon and is just as exciting and adventuress as the first one. (A)

Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max Fury Road could just possibly be the greatest action film of the decade. It boasts some of the best special effects and direction put on screen, and is most definitely the next big Action Movie landmark. (A+)

San Andreas
San Andreas(2015)
½

Of the disaster movies that have gotten a little old by now, this one is at the highest peak of them. (B-)

Tomorrowland
Tomorrowland(2015)
½

Tomorrowland has a creative premise and is visually stunning, but all falls apart in the final act which almost ruins the entire movie. (B-)

Seven (Se7en)

Se7en is dark and haunting with a suspenseful ending. (A+)

Fight Club(1999)

First rule of Fight Club, Don't Talk About Fight Club. Cause this film doesn't need any explaining to be told it's a instant classic that is entertaining in every way possible! (A+)

If bond was rated R it would be this film. The film boasts some really new and heart-pumping action fights and is funny at the same time therefore creating a worthy action film for 2015. (A)

Aliens
Aliens(1986)

Even more explosive than the first, Aliens is a fine sequel that evolves Sci-Fi films forever. (A+)

With some pretty crazy awesome visuals, ASM 2 is a worthy entry into the series even if its plot feels a bit cheesy and long. (B-)

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Darkly funny, Seven Psychopaths is a interesting piece of work on its own. (A-)

Jack and Jill

I remember when Adam Sandler made some pretty funny films, I gave up on him after watching this piece of... (D)

Just in the middle of the Hunger Games Franchise and Divergent Franchise of the Young Adult films. (B)

Jaws 3
Jaws 3(1983)
½

Imagine Sea World Meets Piranha 3DD. It's pretty terrible and quite unnecessary. (D+)

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
½

This is the film that proves Marvel Phase 2 as a worthy franchise. With intense and hear-beating action Winter Soldier is even better than its predecessor. (A)

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

Jaws 2
Jaws 2(1978)

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl is pretty damn good for something based off a park ride. (B+)

Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvels greatest film yet. Seriously it's a high leveled fun adventure that will make you want to see it over and over again. (A+)

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

With stylish effects and great performances, RTPA is a worth prequel to the original franchise. (A-)

It's to underrated, Godzilla is actually more than a monster flick and more of a modern day Jurassic Park, maybe, but it's pretty close. (A-)

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

Everything it's hyped up to be, DOPA is a worthy sequel that is absolutely breathtaking especially the visuals. (A)

How to Train Your Dragon 2

A worthy sequel that proves just as spectacular as the first, which is quite impressive from Dreamworks in fact. (A-)

I, Frankenstein

It's a really bad film that at least has some entertaining action sequences. (C-)

Batman & Robin

No doubt the worst superhero flick ever created, period. (D-)

I new this film was going to suck before even knowing about it. (D+)

The LEGO Movie

It's possibly a huge advertisement for LEGO or the greatest animated feature film this decade. (A+)

Jurassic Park III

A repeat of the 2nd and 1st film, Jurasic Park III feels dull. It can still be an entertaining flick, once and a while. (C+)

The movie is charming in some ways but overall annoying and corny. (C-)

Even better than the original, The Empire Strikes, might just be the greatest sci-fi out there. (A+)

After a depressing amount of disappointing prequels, Star Wars III actually proves worthy of a good Star Wars film. YES! (B+)

It most definitely surpasses the first film, but it's still no new Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings. (B-)

Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)
½

A fantastic entree to the Marvel Cinematic even if things go a little too overboard at the end. (A-)

The Adventures of Tintin

A fantastic re-imagination of the original Tintin comic books that boasts some pretty unique and heart-pumping action sequences and effects. Felt like the animated version of Indiana Jones. (A)
