Forks Over Knives is a very eye-opening, well-researched documentary. It is very matter-of-fact and even a little insulting at times, however; Food,Inc. is a little more subtle than this one.
Cute but forgettable Streisand flick.
Firewall has a good plot and acting, but the story is very cliched and nonsensical at times to achieve what the movie intended. The writing also could've been improved.
Flypaper is a silly mess with so many flaws and inconsistencies that by the end it makes no sense at all, but its still a notch above the worst movies of the genre, if that's any consolation.
Disturbia is a pretty good film; it features a solid performance from Shia LaBeouf before he wasn't famous anymore, and is very thrilling at times. The ending is a bit cliched, but the rest of the movie is worth it.
Devil's Knot tells a compelling story, but the movie is bogged down by storyline cliches, poor pacing, and being overlong. It's a shame that Witherspoon and Firth didn't have more scenes together, as their characters are what makes the movie interesting.
Deadpool is funny, fresh, and self-deprecating in such a way that the film is different from most superhero fare. Ryan Reynolds fits into the role perfectly.
Date Night is a fine film for a Friday night, just nothing special. It plays into cliches of "the people get thrown into dire situation and rise to the occasion" and "bored married couple's life gets interesting". Nonetheless, it's just typical genre fare in the best sense it can be.
The Da VInci Code is preposterous, but its preposterous fun. It stays faithful to Dan Brown's novel, while at the same time injecting enough movie effects to keep the audience entertained. Also, the theories and storyline is very clever, if historically flawed.
Poorly acted, shot, and written, even for a tv movie. There are plenty of documentaries on the Enron case that are 1000x better.
Creed just goes to show that any franchise can keep producing great movies as long as the storyline and energy stay fresh. As a Rocky movie, it stayed true to the elements the franchise is known for, at the same time adding original content and updates to technology. Another Creed movie will do just fine.
Conspiracy Theory isn't bad when it comes to most of the details, it's when we see the big picture that it becomes sloppy looking and barely pasted together. Roberts and Gibson have less-than-believable chemistry with an even less believable love story. The movie makes it look like Mel Gibson isn't even acting, the actor is just going through everyday life as a crazy, psycho conspiracy theorist.
Con Air is (hopefully) about as ridiculous as movies can get, but still be very enjoyable to watch. Nic Cage is his usual over-the-top self, playing a character with a Southern accent in which he constantly slips out of almost every take, but no one's paying attention to that. Instead, all that is needed here is a coherent enough storyline, a bunch of explosions, and plenty of car crashes.
Cloak and Dagger proves to be nothing special, and falls victim to the usual genre cliches.
Misleading title, great movie. Howard delivers an excellent film that is sure to inspire us all. Crowe's portrayal of boxer Jimmy Braddock is great, and luckily the movie forgoes the usual boxing cliches, albeit a bit long.
Casino Jack is enjoyable enough, but lacks pacing or originality; i felt like I was watching bits and pieces from other (better) films the whole time. Nonetheless, Spacey plays slick lobbyist Abramoff with just the right touch, and is well-suited for the role.
Anthropoid is a very complex and stunning drama that doesn't relent for a minute. The performances by Murphy and Dornan are surprisingly deep and emotional, and the movie benefits from a straightforward story and no gloss or unnecessary storyline. Mostly unknown director Sean Ellis has potential.
When I saw the trailer for Lockout back in 2012, I thought, "oh, here we go again. Another CGI, messy, violent action movie with one liners and bad acting." Lockout proved a little bit of that to be true, but still exceeded my expectations.
Lockout is a fun movie for a party night or a couple of bros hanging out, but its not one to take your girlfriend to---- unless she can take that kind of stuff!--- and is not for your grandma either. It mixes a smart, but somewhat sluggish script, with a surprisingly well-thought out story line, and gets a solid B Actioner; but this movie thinks too highly of itself for what it is. Sometimes, it caves into itself, overstepping its boundaries, and the product is an adrenaline rush: the bad kind. More like a kid running around after having too much candy. Again, this is only at parts of it. Most of the movie is decent.
As awesome as ever, this movie has Guy Pierce, who has proved his talents as a character actor over and over again. From playing a geeky, by-the-books cop in L.A. Confidential, to an Irish evil-doer who wants to destroy the world in Iron Man 3. Now, he plays a bad-ass, flirty, lets-get-this-over-with man who was wrongfully convicted of Espionage against the U.S. He also needs a shave He's offered his freedom by rescuing the president's daughter from a prison she was visiting that got taken over by the prisoners. Trouble arises when he gets there, obviously, since this is a MOVIE, and nothing is simple and/or seems to go right.
I did, in fact, very much like one of the final scenes where they explained what happened to the whereabouts of the "package" that contained valuable information; the thing that got him arrested in the first place. I'm not gonna spoil it too much, but the way the writers played up the scene and its symbols was very creative. To find out what the hell I'm talking about, you'll have to see the movie (if you haven't already)! Overall, this movie is definitely worth a watch. Oh, and did I mention it takes place in 2079?
Captain America: Civil War is a few notches above the average Marvel movie thanks to an exciting premise and good effects. The movie is overlong, and by now all these Marvel spinoffs and sequels are starting to lose their edge-- it seems like now its only about the money.
Bridge of Spies is the best Spielberg movie in years, and Tom Hanks' best performance in years. It is captivating, beautifully shot, brilliantly acted, and definitely has some of that ol' Spielberg charm to it, even during more serious scenes.
