This Is the End

It's just not very funny - i LOVE Judd Apatow/Evan Goldberg and everyone in this movie. Superbad, forgetting sarah marshall, get him to the greek, pineapple express, and knocked up are all phenomenal movies in my opinion, but in my eyes they're funny because the characters are so hilarious and the situations are so normal. In This Is The End whilst the situations are entertaining and provide funny settings, the characters just aren't on the top of their game. The whole plot line with Jay and Seth was really stupid and unnecessary I found (although the side plot with Jonah and Jay was hilarious), and they never used characters to their full potential, especially the minor ones (Emma Watson, Aziz Ansari, Michael Cera etc.)

I really don't get why critics love this. I wish I could see it that way too as I was so excited for this movie.

The Cabin in the Woods
½

This could essentially be the origin story for every horror movie that's ever existed. Cabin In The Woods is a brilliant, satirical film, on par with Shaun of the Dead and Slither.

Watchmen
Watchmen(2009)
½

If the Dark Knight was rated R, this would be it. Violent, dark, visceral - Zack Snyder did an incredible job bringing the Watchmen comic to life.

Inception
Inception(2010)
½

One of Nolan's best films (just behind Memento and the Dark Knight), this films cerebral, and intricate plot could only have worked with the right actors; the best part of the film is the performances by Ellen Page, Leo, JGL, and Tom Hardy. Their characters are all incredibly likable, making you want to pay attention and care for the 2 and a half hours it takes to tell this mind bending story. And kudos to Marion Cotillard for playing such a genuinely creepy "Mal." Reminded me a lot of Leo's role in Shutter Island.

The Matrix
The Matrix(1999)

I love and appreciate this film more every time I watch it.

Mama
Mama(2013)

A surprisingly solid film, though I didn't find this to be very scary, it was still enjoyable to watch, Chastain's performance is excellent as always.

Django Unchained
½

Not as good as Inglorious Basterds but still an excellent film from Tarantino.

Texas Chainsaw
½

A pretty fun time if you see it in the theatres, but definitely not one of the franchise's better entries.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

In my opinion, this is without a doubt the best film ever made.

The Dark Knight Rises

On its own, this film is a solid 50%, but to close Nolan's incredible, original trilogy? Not a fucking chance. I hated this film from start to finish, it was derivative, boring, completely nonsensical, and the ending was just a slap in the face to everyone - killing bane off screen, making marion cotillard the villain, and then keeping batman alive with a cheesy café scene? Maybe I'm just being cynical but this movie was Nolan's worst effort by far.

The Hangover Part III

Do yourself a favor and just re-watch the first one.
