Bio: This is my scale for movies (not TV).
4: Not so hot, or a genre I don't usually like (such as romance)
3: Bad plus the people who made it need to be insulted a little
2: Notably bad and the people need to be insulted even more
1: Terrible in the worst ways and maximum insult to those who made it
"I hate all comparisons involving oil."
"Now I know how ruins feel. Sterile and empty-eyed amid lush nature."

"'Sole survivor' movies usually have very little plot, but in this movie I think literally nothing happened. And it was 100 minutes long. That's a lot of time for so little (if any) plot."
|30 T2||The FP (2011) - Oct 22, 2017
"Somehow this was way better than a bunch of other movies I've seen recently. For what it is, it's pretty good. But I think the target audience for what it is is pretty narrow."

"This could have been awesome in the hands of a better writer. There were some engaging and interesting moments, but generally it was just one preposterous event after another. That plus an endless string of coincidences and plot holes undermined every other aspect of the movie. I'd recommend Ebola Syndrome instead."

"I spent most of the movie not liking it, but by the end I liked it. Also, those kids live better then than I live now."
|50 T6||Asura: The City of Madness (2016) - Oct 20, 2017
"There was no character development, and it was too long, but the violence probably makes up for it."
|40 T4||Open Grave (2013) - Oct 20, 2017
"Everything about this was great except for a fatal flaw - the "idiot plot". The character decisions grew more and more stupid as the movie went on. Why didn't they just work together? The Lukas paranoia subplot should have been dropped in favor of a more teamwork oriented "let's use smart thinking and decisions" approach to figure out the mystery. Despite all this, I still liked it. The acting was great, especially by Sharlto Copley who rocked it right from the start. What a wonderful actor."
|10 T1||Dawn (aka. Morgenrøde) (2014) - Oct 18, 2017
"This movie fails in the most basic ways. The setting isn't properly introduced or expanded upon. The characters have no development or even basic, initial personality. The first plot point doesn't happen until 17 minutes in, and even then it barely qualifies. Why wasn't this a 10 minute short? More happens in the summary of this movie than in the actual movie itself. In fact, nothing in the summary happens. The viewer has to rely on the movie summary for the setting and plot. Grade: F-"
|10 T1||Hell (2011) - Oct 18, 2017
"Yet another post collapse movie where the primary method of advancing the plot is unbelievably stupid character decisions."
