Movie Ratings and Reviews

Transformers: The Last Knight

While it tries to be different with somewhat interesting ideas and somewhat enjoyable characters (contributing to the first half of the film being somewhat entertaining), the second half is a cluster-f*ck of boring loud action set pieces we've seen before, even with its impressive visuals, and moments of silliness and cringe.

You get what you get with Transformers: The Last Knight. If you like these films, good for you; if you loathe them, then there's no reason for you to see it. As for me, The Last Knight is just as mediocre as the last two films (and certainly better than Revenge of the Fallen), but still not as entertaining as the first film. I think it's time that this series of films needs to end.


A powerful sendoff to Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart as Logan and Charles, "Logan" delivers everything you want from a film like this. From Dafne Keen's Laura (X-23), Boyd Holbrook's enjoyable villain, and emotional and thoughtful substance in an already amazing superhero action film. If it weren't for a few things that don't add up, and the film's two main villains, "Logan" would be damn near perfect.

Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman(2017)

Aside from a few not so great visual effects and a few over-the-top moments, Wonder Woman is a wonderful (sorry) film that makes the most of the DCEU's potential, with great performances, a powerful message, awesome action, an incredible score, and an amazing direction and story from Patty Jenkins and Allan Heinberg.

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Kingsman is awesome! This fun and inventive spy movie is truly entertaining. Taron Egerton, you have my attention. Matthew Vaughn's British/007 spy satire truly delivers a fun experience with fun characters, action and quips. Although, the anti-climactic ending leaves some things unresolved, and a few of the jokes fell flat. Overall, this is one of the best non-007/Bourne/Mission Impossible spy movies ever!

Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell is okay, but not quite as amazing as it could be, despite its best efforts to "honor" the original anime from a western perspective.

The film boasts beautiful visuals, okay action, a cool score, a few interesting ideas, and good performances from the cast, with Pilou Asbęk, Takeshi Kitano and Michael Pitt being the stand-outs.

However, the film also presents questionable directing, acting and script choices from Rupert Sanders, Scarlett Johansson and the screenwriters respectively (not to mention the unfortunate twist), a generic plot, underwritten side characters, and dumbed-down philosophical themes.

While the end result is not as awful as it could have been, there's still plenty of room for improvement for this film (and any possible sequels) to be incredible and to do the original anime justice. The film, much like The Major, is a shell with fragments of an otherwise compelling ghost.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Despite the choppy first act and some weak characterizations and music choices, director Gareth Edwards gives us a war story with a surprising amount of depth and sophistication, as it is a story of hope and sacrifice. With great performances, stunning visuals, action, scale and spectacle, and an awesome third act, Rogue One is a fantastic new entry in the Star Wars mythology, and a promising first entry for the new Star Wars Story/Anthology films that breaks new narrative ground.


Moana isn't the most original thing ever and isn't as fantastic as Zootopia, as it is derivative of other better Disney films and has pacing problems here and there. However, Moana makes up for it by offering some new likable characters in the Disney "canon", despite being not so interesting, great music (although not as grand or amazing as the music in other Disney films), amazing visuals and animation, as well as a few new fresh elements to make itself somewhat more unique from other Disney films. Moana is a satisfying new entry into Disney's new modern animation renaissance.

A Monster Calls

A Monster Calls is a magnificent film of darkness and fantasy, grief and imagination. Director J.A. Bayona does a brilliant job with this film, everyone in the cast gives great-to-amazing performances, especially from Lewis MacDougall. The animation and visuals are astounding to witness, and the script from the book's author himself is very impressive, combining heavy themes and emotion with pure imagination and depth. A Monster Calls is an emotional, engrossing and moving masterpiece and my favourite film of 2016.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

WOW! So many brilliant Hollywood blockbuster hits in 2014. However, this might just be my favourite of the comic book movies that were just as awesome (except Amazing Spider-Man 2).

I love that they threw away The Last Stand and just reset their entire universe. The plot is exciting yet intriguing. The cast was terrific in their respective roles. The CGI and action was also pretty excellent.

The movie was fricking awesome, even as much as Marvel's The Avengers. Welcome back, Bryan Singer! To the franchise you should never leave (until the time has come for a reboot).

Sucker Punch
Sucker Punch(2011)

Even with its impressive visuals, action and spectacle, and the performances being hit-and-miss, I can't tell if Sucker Punch is brilliant, pretentious or down-right stupid, especially with its story and script.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts is a satisfying new return to J. K. Rowling's Wizarding World, with fantastic visuals, action, spectacle, characters and performances. However, the film, while its story engaging, does become slow at parts, with a few poor and unnecessary sequences. Nevertheless, it was great to be returning to the world of Harry Potter.

Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War, while it boasts spectacular action, character development, and new introduced characters, it is no different from the problems shared with Batman v Superman, in terms of its plot logic, bloated screenplay, with its number of heroes, and its uncertain tone. Nevertheless, Captain America: Civil War is a satisfactory entry that means big things for the MCU.

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad has off-putting story and editing issues, uncertain tone, wasted elements, hit and miss characters and performances, and a super lame villain. Nevertheless, Suicide Squad was somewhat entertaining, with a few great performances (from Smith, Robbie, Hernandez, Courtney and Davis), good action and a few well-executed moments.

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is one of Marvel's best films, seriously. Doctor Strange is weird, imaginative and innovative in terms of visuals, is wonderfully acted by its cast, and boasts some great depth and messages in the screenplay. However, some characters are underwritten, especially Mads Mikkelsen's villain, and some of the humor doesn't quite land, which also leads to a somewhat uneven tone because of said humor. While Doctor Strange is somewhat derivative, it is an innovation in the MCU and the superhero genre itself.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

This film is very bizarre, not just in terms of the actual bizarre things in the movie. The cast do a good enough job with their roles, even if some of them didn't have much to do. The visual effects and production design are also great. However, director Tim Burton and screenwriter Jane Goldman made bizarre creative choices with this film; either to simply suit their styles or just for shock value. As a result, it feels like there isn't much effort made with the film. The script isn't as horrible as those for other book adaptations but it isn't great enough to make me anticipate for a sequel. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is an okay film that doesn't do much to keep the YA/teen genre relevant or alive.

Marvel's The Avengers

Extremely entertaining. Extremely fun. This is a nerd's dream come true. Marvel fans will be proud of this. However, my only complaints are that the plot was, in someway, generic, there were a few slow and boring moments, and the aliens I found weren't that threatening. Overall, this is easily one of the most delightful comic book movies to date.


I feel that Deadpool receives more credit than it deserves. While it is funny and filled with spectacular action and comedy, it is not without its flaws.

The R rated stuff, while funny and good, felt a bit forced into the movie just to please the fans to make sure its R rated because it wants to be. The film, while it does make fun of the superhero movie tropes, it still follows the superhero movie "formula". I would also think that there will be moments that feel A BIT sexist towards women who will watch this movie. And also, DON'T LET CHILDREN SEE THIS MOVIE! Also, there was a few comedy that wasn't my type of comedy, PERSONALLY.

Nevertheless, Ryan Reynolds is perfect as Deadpool, with the rest of the cast doing a good job. The tie-ins with the X-Men universe were also pretty cool.

So while I don't think its as perfect as everyone is saying it is, the movie is still an enjoyable watch.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

As a fanboy, I'd say this movie is awesome. However, as a fan of movies, Batman v Superman is disappointingly flawed, though it still has its merits.

The main big problem with the film is the incoherent narrative pacing and editing. The film has brilliant ideas, but it doesn't seem that director Zack Snyder knows how to hold them together to make a smooth coherent story, especially since the film has to also establish this new DC universe and set up things for the future (even if it the content of those parts are pretty exciting as a fanboy). Some choices made with the characters and plot points were also pretty odd, especially with Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor.

Onto the positive, the film has brilliant acting, especially from Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot, though the rest do their best with what they were given. The film's action and visual spectacle was also pretty astonishing. Director Zack Snyder and writer Chris Terrio also do a terrific job pulling off the more serious and subtle moments of the film and its story.

While it is disappointing and heartbreaking that Batman v Superman is getting response it is getting, the film is not without its more-than-great merits, in my opinion at least. And I have to admit, Wonder Woman is pretty awesome and I'm still looking forward to the DC Extended Universe. This movie could have been worse, and I mean much worse.

Transformers: Age of Extinction

This could have at least been as good as the first movie, but as always what the trailer shows can actually be WAY better than the film should have been. While the human characters and acting was surprisingly better than the last movies and the darker tone and the visual effects were decent, the film's action and explosions (which makes up 80% of the movie) is actually quite boring. The performances of some actors (mostly Nicola Peltz) were just terrible, and there is a minimal amount of plot to deserve having this much action. The script from Ehren Kruger, who clearly should be fired by now, is also underwhelming and predictable. Seriously, why do these movies keep making money?

Toy Story
Toy Story(1995)

Toy Story is regarded as the classic Pixar film for a reason. It's that brilliant for a first film for a studio.

Toy Story 2
Toy Story 2(1999)

Toy Story 2 is a rare sequel that manages to be just as magnificent as the first, perhaps better.

Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3(2010)

Toy Story 3 is easily the best threequel in film history.

Finding Dory
Finding Dory(2016)

Pixar is heading in the right direction. Finding Dory is both funny and poignant, with likable characters and great performances and a great script. While it doesn't feel as big as the original, some characters and story elements were unnecessary and repetitive, and with its over-the-top climax, Finding Dory is still a satisfactory entry from Pixar.

Finding Nemo
Finding Nemo(2003)

I grew up with this film as a kid, and I still love it today. With excellent performances and touching story, Finding Nemo's status as one of the iconic Pixar films is deserved.


With lovable characters, a great message (though it is heavy handed), beautiful animation and a terrific script, Zootopia is up there with the Pixar and Studio Ghibli films.


The film, as it progressed, manages to become both increasingly intriguing and ridiculous. The cast did a good job, the visual effects were stunning and the film had decent action sequences. The plot, while it kept me intrigued, became more and more silly. There weren't as many action sequences as the trailer suggested. The nature clips felt unnecessary and even more ridiculous was Lucy's conversation with her mum. Nevertheless, I still kinda liked it.

X-Men: Apocalypse

While X-Men: Apocalypse is not as magnificent as Days of Future Past, Apocalypse is a a welcoming addition to the X-Men series. While it has great performances, characters, visuals, action and writing, it also doesn't have as much time for some characters and ideas to shine, and it doesn't do anything particularly new. Nevertheless, X-Men: Apocalypse has made me even more excited for things to come for the future of the X-Men universe.

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book is the greatest innovation in CGI film since Avatar and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Jon Favreau does a brilliant job with this adaptation of the Disney animated classic. The acting, the story, the action, the spectacle, all done brilliantly. However, some of the tonal shifts in the film didn't work; such as a particularly dark scene transitioning to a scene that was very bright, in terms of the visuals. One of the two musical numbers in the film also didn't work; the one involving Christopher Walken's King Louie. There were also a few moments that were a little too dark and intense, even for Disney.

Overall, The Jungle Book gives new hope for more truly great Disney live-action fairy-tales to come.

The Truman Show

The Truman Show is not the type of movie I would have been interested in seeing. But after watching, I'm glad I did saw it, even if it wasn't necessarily my cup of tea.

With its fantastic blend between comedy and drama, The Truman Show is a funny and dramatic, and also thought-provoking, film with a terrific performance from Jim Carrey.

10 Cloverfield Lane

10 Cloverfield Lane is an amazing sci-fi thriller. The cast performances were terrific, the script was smart and solid, despite some minor odd choices in character logic, and the direction and atmosphere was thrilling and intense. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is now the next Sigourney Weaver. This film was definitely a brilliant successor the original Cloverfield.

San Andreas
San Andreas(2015)

San Andreas is a decent disaster movie that actually tries to make the story and character development good, with mixed results. San Andreas has some some unintentionally funny moments, from certain ridiculous scenes to some parts where Carla Gugino's acting would cause unintentional giggles. The impressive CGI visual moments distracted from the fact that this earthquake situation is bad and takes away the lives of innocents. Nevertheless, the Rock does a great job as the lead, as this is the one of the better disaster film in years despite some questionable moments.


While Spectre is disappointing compared to Casino Royale and Skyfall, it is certainly a good new Bond story. Spectre is has glorious action and stunts, and is well acted, while its mix of old Bond and new Bond delivers mixed results. The story and script overwhelmingly attempts to blow your mind, when it is disappointingly predictable. The villain is written poorly, and the romance between Bond and Lea Seydoux seemed pretty forced. Despite its story flaws, Spectre is a satisfactory new chapter in Daniel Craig's Bond saga.

Crimson Peak
Crimson Peak(2015)

It appears that del Toro has put more thought into the style of Crimson Peak than its substance. Despite good performances, chilling atmosphere and amazing visuals, Crimson Peak disappoints with its dull and uninteresting script that thinks it's a game-changer, when it really isn't.

Alice in Wonderland

While it lacks the energy, heart and nonsensical whimsy of both original source materials, its an enjoyable ride of visual madness and fine performances, despite the not-so good narrative.

Quantum of Solace

Meh. Not the best follow-up to the amazing predecessor.

Batman & Robin

This was bullsh*t. Truly the worst Batman film of all time.

The Conjuring

This is definitely James Wan's best film since Saw. However, this one seems like any other horror demon possession movie these days. Eventually, this is better than most of them. Sadly, I was hoping for this movie to be realistic, since this is based on a true story, but it wasn't. Despite these problems, The Conjuring is definitely one of the best horror movies of the year.

Thor: The Dark World

I had a good time. The only thing I didn't like was the humor. I thought one of the earlier jokes was unnecessary and inappropriate even by Marvel and Disney standards. I don't blame Kat Dennings for being unlikeable in this and the first one, I just blame the writing for making her character exist and annoy us critics. The only joke I managed to giggle at was Dr. Selvig's reaction to you know who's death. For Disney's first official Marvel movie, I thought it was decent.

X-Men: The Last Stand

A disappointing sequel to two great films that encouraged us to see what Marvel can do next. This film was dominated by good action sequences and CGI, which takes over the heart of the first two.


Mind-bending and mind-blowing. So many things that make us want to see more. Christopher Nolan is a genius.

Batman Returns

Although this was darker than the original film, it was still a great film. Just as good as the first.


An instant superhero classic.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

While the film does feel rushed, is unable to fully develop some of the characters and has a story that became too convoluted, Legend of the Guardians is packed with beautiful animation, memorable characters, and fun action. This is basically Lord of the Rings with owls.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

I'm afraid that I haven't seen any Star Wars film up until recently (aside from The Clone Wars TV Series), and I was excited that the Star Wars films was finally airing on Australian TV. Unfortunately, it was Episode I: The Phantom Menace that would be aired first, the one that was almost unanimously panned by the fanboy community.

However, while I don't think it's as terrible as the fanboys are saying it it, it's certainly not good either. I actually think most of the performances were decent, with the exception of Natalie Portman because she was switching from British accent or American. Jake Lloyd as Anakin was fine as far as child actors go, though his acting didn't feel genuine in some places. A lot of the CG really didn't hold up, despite the film having many cool visual sequences. The plot itself I really didn't care for, especially since there is a lot of boring politics talk and some other plot points felt mediocre. As for Jar Jar Binks, he failed at being the wacky sidekick character and was too silly, even for Star Wars.

The Phantom Menace was memorable for both the right and wrong reasons, it just could've been much better if the film was more engaging enough. So far, this first Star Wars experience did not start off well for me.

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3(2007)

This film was good but there were problems more noticeable than the previous films. The film packs in too much, the little screen-time of Venom was disappointing, and there were moments too ridiculous and out of place, even for Spider-Man standards. Disappointing but it was still cool and fun.

Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 2(2004)

One of the greatest Marvel movies of all time. Spider-Man 2 was dazzling with great action, heart and a brilliant villain, even with its silly moments. Spider-Man 2 is a stupendous improvement over the original.


A fun movie that Spidey fans will enjoy, despite the visual effects not holding up very well, not so good dialogue and the moments that are too cheesy and silly. This movie is a great experience for those who love superhero movies.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

Ah yes, The Force Awakens! The Force Awakens is an absolute delight of a film. It is packed with great action, it has an wonderful cast (Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac being the stand-outs), and is very high in entertainment value. With the story, half of the film is basically A New Hope, understandably so to make the series feel like Star Wars again, but I felt that this was a bit distracting, despite the film doing a great job balancing old Star Wars with a new fresh blood. There were also things that happened in the film were pretty convenient, the under-use of certain characters, and questionable decisions made in the script. Otherwise, The Force Awakens successfully reclaims the former glory of the Star Wars saga. The force is still strong with the franchise.

The Good Dinosaur

While The Good Dinosaur is generic and pretty weak in story that tends to jump between different types of films and has weak cartoonish character designs, The Good Dinosaur is a great addition to the Pixar original films. With beautiful landscape animation, touching moments, great voice acting and memorable characters (with the Arlo and Spot relationship being just as good as Sully and Boo in Monsters Inc.), The Good Dinosaur proves that Pixar still has it with the quality of their films.

Inside Out
Inside Out(2015)

Inside Out is a fun, creative and inventive take on the human mind concept. The emotions are memorable, the humans are relatable, the humor is funny, and the world-building of the mind is definitely the main highlight. However, I feel like there have been missed opportunities with the story, as some parts could have been executed better, felt questionable and to some degree emotionally manipulative. Overall, while I do think Inside Out isn't as perfect as everyone is saying it is, Pixar is heading in the right direction, as Inside Out is a film that should be watched by many.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

Before I watched this film, I knew this was going to be the one that would be the least bad. And I was correct. Revenge of the Sith is easily the least bad of the Star Wars prequels.

While the film started off being just as mediocre as the previous two and had even more obvious CGI, the film slowly gets better in quality. This had the least awful acting from the cast, even from Hayden Christensen who was okay and Ewan McGregor being the standout. The film had a much more watchable and intriguing plot. And the ending I felt was very powerful.

This is definitely the least awful Star Wars prequel, and it is a satisfactory installment to the Star Wars saga..

The Little Prince

The Little Prince is a brilliant and wonderful film for children and adults. While the Little Prince segments of the story can be a bit hard to follow (especially to children), the film wonderfully showcases its great animation, touching story and its terrific message. The Little Prince may be just as good as Pixar's best films (perhaps even better).

Avengers: Age of Ultron

While the action, comedy and entertainment value is just as grand as its predecessor, Age of Ultron falls downhill when setting up other movies, rushing sideplots, as well as a few too many subplots, despite how likable they made Hawkeye in this one (I'm looking at you Bruce/Natasha subplot). While Ultron himself was disappointing as a villain, it was a step in the right direction when it comes to Marvel's villains. While Avengers: Age is Ultron fails to live up to the high expectations made by the first one, it's still a film not to be missed.

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

While it is the weakest of the original Star Wars trilogy when it comes to its story and script, it is indeed the most entertaining of the trilogy. As someone who doesn't adore Star Wars, I understand why people love it, as Return of the Jedi is a solid conclusion to the original saga.

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

This is a great film. While it is better than its predecessor as a lot of people are saying it is, I have yet to have a huge admiration for Star Wars. While I don't absolutely adore Star Wars, I think it's great, it's cool.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

After years and years, I have finally seen Star Wars, and I gotta say, It's a really good film.

This film is really enjoyable for an old film, and I understand why fans adore Star Wars. However, since I never really grew up with Star Wars, I don't love it as much as others, even as a film fanboy. But, that doesn't mean I think Star Wars is bad, I like Star Wars, it's cool, but then again, I haven't seen the rest.

Star Wars is a film that starts a promising iconic sci-fi saga in pop culture, for an up and coming fan.

Casino Royale

Great cast, great plot, great action. Great movie. One of the best Bond movies ever.

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

I don't know what else to say about this movie. Attack of the Clones is just as mediocre as The Phantom Menace. I could not care less about this film's plot, and the characters of this film, and there is an overuse of painfully obvious CGI. Most of the acting ranged from terrible to okay, with Hayden Christensen's acting being atrocious. However, there were a few things I liked. There were some action sequences I thought were entertaining, with the fight between Yoda and Count Dooku being a so bad it's awesome moment for me. The film is just as mediocre as its predecessor, and it is not close to being an entertaining film.

Fantastic Four


Go ahead, bite me if you think I'm an idiot for liking this movie, cause this movie had enough hate from idiots like you to begin with. While I do agree with that the final act was a mess and felt like a completely different movie, no thanks to the studio's interference, I thought this Fantastic Four is better than the two other ones, and it really did start off strong, even though it really could have been better, which is disappointing.

The character development between Reed and Grimm was great but I felt like there were some parts missing to it. The relationship between the Storms, as well as Doom's story, was fully fleshed out enough, and it's painfully clear that a lot of development was cut from the film by the studio's stupid mind. The actors did a great job with what they were given with. I loved Doom's intimidating look, even though it could have been done better. I loved the dark realistic sci-fi and horror aspects of the movie, which again, was ruined by the studio. Contrary to what many people believe, there was some humor in this movie, it just wasn't that funny. The humor and lines in the third act was especially cringe-worthy. There were so many moments that felt missing from the film, including three major action sequences, which were cut by the studio (SURPRISE, SURPRISE).

This was a film that was completely ruined by a studio's idiotic mind and it could have been MUCH better film to begin with and that's disappointing. This film did not deserve the hate it should have and its definitely a good film.

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow

An extremely solid original blockbuster action film that delivers great performances from Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, as well as great action, great humor, and great thrills.


Even with its interesting ideas and pretty cool visual effects, Insurgent proves that the Divergent Series still stands mediocre compared to the Hunger Games and the Maze Runner.


While it has interesting ideas, this YA adaptation is by the numbers and mediocre compared to the Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

While its a solid entry of the series, its lack of action and intrigue does more bad to the film than good.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

A significant improvement over its predecessor, Catching Fire is a really great YA adaptation that proves that they can compete against a mostly-superhero-movie-filled future of film.

The Hunger Games

A good yet flawed young adult adaptation that is certainly a masterpiece when compared to Twilight.

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

This is a great post-apocalyptic action thriller, yet it has its flaws. For one thing, there are plenty of moments where you're questioning the characters' actions and some of these characters were underdeveloped. There were also moments that felt weirdly out of place, especially a certain drug-trip scene and some horror moments. However, the film does utilize its young and older cast very well, except maybe Lili Taylor, the action was very thrilling with great spectacle. The plot is decent yet predictable, and it simultaneously answers established questions and raises newer question, causing a considerable amount of plot-holes. The ending also could have been more powerful and effective if the last few minutes could have been cut out, though it's still a reasonable ending. Overall, the film was on par with the first and it successfully differentiates itself from other YA adaptations.

The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner is a great sci-fi action thriller that successfully differentiates itself from other YA adaptations. Yet it has its flaws with its story and character development, especially its sequel-set-up ending, it manages to pull off its action very well with great spectacle and great thrills.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Mesmerizing, thrilling, and just simply AWESOME on almost every single level!


Chronicle, just got on my list of favorite films I ever seen. The only issues I have is the forced romance and the need for everything to be found footage, since it could have been PART found footage and PART normal. While it could have been done better, Chronicle is just a really great movie.

Man of Steel
Man of Steel(2013)

Although there is a bit too much action/destruction, the Lois Lane character seemed forced and the some lines are bad, this film was better than good, it was just as good Batman Begins. The cast was great, the story was brilliant and fresh, the VFX were beyond decent, and the movie was a good start as a beginning of the DC Cinematic Universe.

This wasn't a great year for Marvel and DC to compete, besides The Wolverine and Thor: The Dark World, but it looks like for me, DC wins. This was a great movie. The critics of Rotten Tomatoes cannot be trusted!

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy is one hellova comic book movie. Almost all the comic book movies this years were just as amazing, well...almost *cough*Amazing Spider-Man 2*cough*.
The characters were lovable, the CGI was amazing, the acting was great. This was the most funniest and most heart-filled Marvelmovie to date.
My only problem was Ronan. If Marvel's going to set up the Thanos storyline, make Ronan an allie not an enemy. I never wanted Ronan to be the villain, and he and the other villains in this movie were disappointingly underwhelming. The waste of such talent as Benicio Del Toro and Glenn Close was also an issue.
Overall, Guardians of the Galaxy was just as incredible as the other incredible comic book films released this year in 2014, proving 2014 was an awesome year for comic book movies (until maybe 2016 with Batman V Superman, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, Doctor Strange, Deadpool and Suicide Squad).


I've never seen the original, but to me, I think it conveys its themes effectively. The cast is great, the plot was better than it could have been, and the VFX and production was impressive. However, there was something about this reboot that just didn't do it for me. A few things in the movie could have been done better, but nevertheless, it was a decent reboot in its own right.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

This was OK. As much as people anticipated this movie would be terrible, knowing that Michael Bay is PRODUCING this movie, this wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Megan Fox was fine as April O' Neil, the Turtles and Splinter were good, Shredder was an OK villain with a very sinister look, the action was actuallly knida well done and the story was decent.

Will Arnett and William Fitchner's performances were underwhelming and could be done while sleeping, "respectively". Though the movie was fun, some of the humour didn't make me laugh (specifically the sexual humour) and came out as somewhat predictable. And some of the lines weren't very memorable.

Overall, this was better than people expected.


Even though it's based on a graphic novel, it's a great re-imagining of the superhero genre, though the character development falls slightly short once the sex comes in, and the story turns ridiculous once the third act begins.


Better than Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, it's good but not great. It's great that this had to be animated because its too ridiculous to be filmed in live-action.


Marvel Studios' first feature film delivers great action, great characters and a great cast of heroes.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

No one expected this to be this good. I thought it was just as good as The Avengers. This movie just ticked all the boxes, with one exception. The title was quite misleading to me actually. Everything that happened in the movie could have happened without Winter Soldier, and he was only in about 40-60% of the entire movie. Other than that, the movie was damn close to being perfect.


Godzilla was definitely my most anticipated movie of 2014. And for me, it ended up as one of my best movies of 2014. I actually loved the movie, and clearly it was better than the abomination was Roland Emmerich's 1998 Godzilla. I actually didn't mind Aaron Taylor-Johnson and his character. Everyone was damn-near perfect, including Godzilla and the M.U.T.Os. However, like most other reviewers, I thought the film needed way more screen-time for Godzilla and Bryan Cranston. Overall, Director Gareth Edwards did an awesome job with this movie and the movie was almost perfect.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

I didn't expect it to be like this. The performances were great, but I didn't like the direction they went with Electro/Max Dillon, who I found was too weird until his inevitable villain side is unleashed. Jamie Foxx was fine in the role by the way. My only other problem was that even when the film had a decent plot, it is already crowded with lots of links to the Spider-Man universe and The Sinister Six, and the film expects you to find and understand all of them. Harry Osborn was also rushed just to set up a CERTAIN scene in a movie. I also found the Rhino unnecessary and some scenes in the film were predictable. Although there was a bit too much going on, I still enjoyed seeing Spider-Man as we know him.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman

This was actually quite charming. I wasn't very touched by it as much as other people, but it was decent.

The LEGO Movie

An unexpectedly spectacular thank you message to everyone who played with Legos, whether they're old or young. The film was almost perfect, that's all I can say, you all get the idea.


Maleficent has amazing visuals and a terrific cast led beautifully by Angelina Jolie in one of her best roles yet. However, the plot is a letdown, treating one of Disney's most iconic villains like a (spoiler alert) hero turned villain turned hero (spoiler over). And the fairies were stupid. Nevertheless, the film was entertaining enough for a 6.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Though many people (in general) think that there can never be too much action and explosion, but to the rest, this was just an explosion-fest with little story-telling and no actual plot.

Silent Hill: Revelation

Despite being a better adaptation than its rival Resident Evil and having stunning CGI, this unscary monstrosity featured bad acting (apart from Adelaide Clemens, even Sean Bean, Kit Harrington and Carrie-Anne Moss were bad), and repetitive and lousy writing.


This is probably Michael Bay's best film. This film was quite good, even though the movie doesn't really seem to please critics.

The Dark Knight Rises

Not as good as The Dark Knight, but this was an epic conclusion to a great trilogy. The only problem, the film leaves us with too many questions and plot-holes.

Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2(2010)

It was good but there were too many people in iron suits in this movie. This movie was unnecessary. There's just too many characters in this movie, despite a good introduction to Black Widow and War Machine.

The Amazing Spider-Man

A great reboot to a beloved trilogy, still not as good as Spider-Man 2.

You're Next
You're Next(2013)

Despite its bad acting, unnecessary sexuality and cheap scares, You're Next delivers a bad-ass female protagonist, creepy-masked killers, unexpected plot twists and unique death scenes that will please horror movie fans. However, after a while, the masks begin to seem cute instead of frightening for me. "You're Next" is a good horror movie, and one of the few best horror films of 2013.

Silent Hill
Silent Hill(2006)

Despite being a better adaptation than its rival Resident Evil, it doesn't make up for being not that scary, having inane dialogue and an overlong runtime for a slightly confusing plot.

Evil Dead
Evil Dead(2013)

It's brutal, violent, bloody, gruesome. I don't know what the critics are thinking, but this remake doesn't need humor. Humor will not fit in with the tone of this movie and it's the best horror movie remake yet, however I did find a few parts a bit goofy, mostly to do with Eric. Practical effects were incredible.
Jane Levy was scary and awesome. Shiloh Fernandez was great and Lou Taylor Pucci was good. I don't give a damn about the other two girls, which is the only problem with this movie, the acting was good but not great. Mainly because there's no character development in this movie, besides Mia and David. I expected more because the trailer showed too much. One of the best horror movies of the year.


J.J Abrams did what he is best at: gives us a good mystery, even if it has to do with monsters. Yes, I know, he's the producer. Very enjoyable (and slightly scary).

Pacific Rim
Pacific Rim(2013)

Though this film had a few problems with the acting and story, and it even seems like Godzilla vs. Power Rangers, Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim was by far the better summer movie of 2013.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Just as bad as the first one. A feast of special FX and good action isn't enough to make this better than the first one.

Fantastic Four

Though the special effects and action are enough to please moviegoers, this film is terribly goofy, unfunny and an embarrassment to Marvel.

X-Men Origins - Wolverine

Terrible, even by X-Men standards. This origin story delivers nothing but beloved comic book character getting f**ked up.

The Incredible Hulk

Better than the last Hulk film but it wasn't enough to make this Hulk a lovable hero, just a monster. This was still good though.


The movie was good but I wish it didn't rely on the humor to make this film even better.

Captain America: The First Avenger

A nice origin story to a beloved hero but both this and Thor aren't going to be good if they rely on humor.

X2: X-Men United

Just as good as the first film. This was probably one of Marvel's best sequels. I can see why people think it's a big hit.

The Wolverine

This was way better than the disappointment that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine. This was the Wolverine movie fans have been waiting for. Though, there were some unnecessary moments, this was a great improvement. I was also surprised that the post-credits scene was better than the rest of the film.

Batman Begins

This was better than Tim Burton's more gritty Batman film. Christopher Nolan was a genius.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

This made up for the monstrosity that is Paranormal Activity 4. This was just as good as Paranormal Activity 3. The story was great and the second half of the movie explained a few of the plot holes from the previous films, which was excellent. The humor in this movie seemed too Chronicle. I also didn't like the acting, and the horror was average but there were still a few cool moments. This could eventually improve the series.


I guess they're going for a more realistic and emotional approach to this one. Anyway, I didn't think this remake was great, I thought it was OK. Chloe Moretz, like most critics would say, is too pretty to be Carrie but she is better in the scenes where she's being emotional. Everyone else was fantastic as everyday teachers, bullies and weirdos, specifically Judy Greer as a convincing gym teacher, maybe even better than the original. Julianne Moore stood out the most as a terrifying crazy religious mother. I thought the prom scene was more brutal than the original, I just wished it was longer. Some of the visual effects and sound designs were lame/ridiculous. I wish they wouldn't make too much references to the original Carrie, even though one of the writers actually wrote the original. Also, that alternate ending was brilliant. Overall, I thought this was a good film for those who aren't familiar with Carrie but OK and unnecessary for the rest of us.


Creepy but not much of a horror movie and not really true to the book. It's still a great movie.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III

As ridiculous as it looks. This was one of the worst cases of bad sequels yet. I don't like how in this movie, they're making into Teenage Mutant Samurai Turtles. This was juvenile even by sequel standards. A total goof fest.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie

I don't understand why critics don't like this. I'd have to agree with the fanboys and fangirls. This was slightly underwhelming but it was terrific.

Iron Man
Iron Man(2008)

I can't get an 85% on this so I had to give 4 stars. This was very enjoyable.


This film has completely changed the definition of a space film. People will be on the edge of their seats (especially when the music gets louder), hoping what the film's heroes are going to do to survive. The film feels real because of the extraordinary visual effects and sound cues. The film gets tense, especially because of the emotional and tense music."Gravity"was a damn near-perfect experience and is definitely one of the best films of the year.

Star Trek Into Darkness

Though it isn't as good as the first J.J Abrams Star Trek, this one was almost as good as both Star Trek and the original Wrath of Khan. And I must agree with some critics that some of us some Khan coming.

The Purge
The Purge(2013)

Even though it's produced by Michael Bay and the concept is just as ridiculous as The Hunger Games, the movie was OK, but better if it could have just been a home invasion thriller. Reply to other audiences: Jason Blum produced both Sinister and Paranormal Activity and it's not the same director as Sinister.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Though the film lacks an actual plot, this was a better improvement for what Revenge of the fallen did. This had the best action sequences in the series, impressive 3D and stunning visuals.

X-Men: First Class

Matthew Vaughn was a genius. He made what the X-Men prequels and sequels should have been. Better than X-3, Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine. And maybe better than the first two X-Men movies.

Despicable Me 2

Though there are a few jokes that could be sexual, this one is just as good as the first as the first one.

The Day the Earth Stood Still

Nothing special. The movie relies on Keanu Reeves and Jaden Smith to make this movie a hit. Sadly, it wasn't.


The movie's special effects were unbelievable but the character development isn't enough to please other critics.

Scary Movie 5

Only moviegoers who easily laugh with these kind of jokes should see this. Only two parodies were funny in this (one was Inception). Bad movie.

Paranormal Activity 4

It does introduce a few new things. But this is not what anyone would hope to see, It's not scary. But there was one deleted scene that made me jump. Worst one in the series.

Resident Evil: Afterlife

Though the plot doesn't really make sense, the 3D isn't very appealing, the acting was pretty bad and there is TOO MUCH slow motion. It does make up for its good action sequences.

Paranormal Activity 3

This one was cool and crazy, not as realistic as the first two films, but it was cool. The rotating camera was genius, wish we could have one last scare with it.

Paranormal Activity 2

This was more of the same but it was still enjoyable. The story of the first one makes more sense when you watch this.

Paranormal Activity

Great, but it would only be worth watching once. This film began a new age of horror movies, though we got tired of it in 3 years.

Resident Evil: Retribution

Though nothing ever made sense and the acting, plot was pretty bad and had too much slow-motion like the 4th, the stunning action sequences were enough to please fans of the film franchise.

Resident Evil: Extinction

This movie didn't really make sense but the action really made up for it's poor acting and OK plot.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse

Fans of the first one will probably like this one. The plot was OK and it wasn't scary enough. This was almost as good as the first one.

Resident Evil

Though this film wasn't true to the video games. This worked best as a prequel to the second game. Very appealing action sequences were enough to call this film OK.


Amazing! The amazing visual effects, 3D and battle sequences are enough to please us with what may or may not be a good story. James Cameron has done a modern masterpiece that was just as good as Titanic.

Batman Forever

Since when did Batman become kid-friendly and campy? This wasn't a true Batman film unlike Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight.

The Dark Knight

This film was amazing. Heath Ledger as great as the Joker. This was truly one of the greatest action/superhero films of all time.

Star Trek
Star Trek(2009)

A great reboot to an iconic franchise, this was worth watching. J.J Abrams has done his best.

Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)

This was a good time and better than Iron Man 2. This was almost as good as Iron Man. If only that the major plot points weren't revealed more like a game than in a movie.

Warm Bodies
Warm Bodies(2013)

Twilight with zombies, only better.


One of the best best Bond films ever! Best Villain, great action, great plot.
