74 55% Ted 2 (2015) - Feb 04, 2019
"Watching both of them back to back, part of me thinks this is better. Unlike the first, this actually has an arch, reason to exist, and it’s actually a pretty good topic. However, it plays on so many tropes from the first, and its kind of annoying. I feel like this would be so much better if it became its own entity, it still has that MacFarlane touch, and if you like it, you’ll probably like this. I like this, but I’m still a little dissapointed because it could be better."
74 55% Ted (2012) - Feb 04, 2019
"Ted is very much a Seth MacFarlane project, almost too much you could say. Ted definitely has some funny moments, I certainly don’t get bored watching it, but it’s all pointless. There isn’t really any story arch to it, it’s just a bunch of scenes strung together, with little subplots here and there. Mark Wahlberg does a lot for me, and him and Ted have good chemistry, but MacFarlane’s talent doesn’t really translate well to a full blown movie. Family Guy suits him better."
97 98% Need for Speed (2014) - Jan 30, 2019
"I will defend this movie to death, I think it’s amazing for what it is. It will never win any awards and most swept it under the rug, but I think it tells a decent story, as I can get behind Aaron Paul in this. The racing and action...it’s just amazing. The absence of CGI is a positive, better than anything in Fast and Furious. You can make the argument it’s a little long, but I don’t notice it. It’s a good revenge story with fast cars...and Michael Keaton...who doesn’t love him?"
76 64% Glass (2019) - Jan 22, 2019
"Glass has a lot of Shyamalan cliches, and you can kind of see him struggle to flesh out this finale because of that. Bruce Willis does seem kind of left out, and some ideas and beliefs are consistently shoved in your face without much progression to the arch. However, Shamaylan has some very beautiful cinematography, and McAvoy deserves lot of praise for his performance. On top of this, I thought this closed nicely and hit what it was going for. Pretty content with this."
77 67% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) - Jan 06, 2019
"I don’t really find these movies as good as everyone else. I thought Rogue Nation was pretty good though so I had decent expectations for this. I’m not in love with it, I think Cavill did a lot for it, but at the end of the day they seem so formulaic for what they go for. You know how they all end, they all usually contain some twist, and Cruise has some stunt bigger than the last one, done in shock for the audience and team. It’s executed well, but I just don’t love it or this franchise"
73 52% The Equalizer 2 (2018) - Jan 02, 2019
"The Equalizer 2 is a little above the average action movie, lead by another good performance in Denzel. The whole arch is messy, there is plenty of scenes and sequences that don’t feel they’re entirely connected, and it plays on twists that are fairly weak. It’s also not really original, but that can slide if it’s well executed, and for the most part it is, it’s entertaining, the action is still refreshing, and Fuqua has a something going for him behind the camera."
100 99% Community (2009) - Dec 30, 2018
"This is by far my favorite tv show. Community has some of the best comedic and relative writing I’ve seen ever. I still pick up on new things to this day. I can go through this series pretty much every year and still laugh my ass off. I applaud Dan Harmon for this alone because even though the series kind of fell off after season 3, I love every character and them alone carried the show through its rough times. This show deserved more success than it got."
75 60% Aquaman (2018) - Dec 24, 2018
"This is actually almost like a video game. It is pretty cliche, pretty straight forward story arch, and a lot of CGI. The movie is self aware, which is nice for DC, but I there are a lot of bizarre sequences that kinda just don’t make sense, and it felt like every time it was bulding towards something story driven, action sequences come literally out of nowhere and detract from it. James Wan is a great director, and he made a entertaining movie, but coherently good might be a stretch."
72 48% Just Go with It (2011) - Dec 13, 2018
"It works, and I think this is one of the better movies Sandler has done in a long time, even if that isn’t saying much. Sandler and Aniston are pretty good and they have decent chemistry, but you know exactly how this kind of movie plays out just off it’s premise. You really gotta knock it out the park with the execution otherwise, it just feels cliche and dull, and that is pretty much how I would sum this up. It’s not bad, it has its moments, but it really is just kind of filler."
80 78% About Last Night (2014) - Dec 12, 2018
"As a 19 year old guy these kinda movies aren’t really meant for me, but as someone who is interested in social interactions and relationships from a psychological perspective, I really like this. I think Ealy and Hart have a lot of chemistry as friends and I think the females were good as well. They all have thier little ticks and traits. It also has it’s moments of being cliche, but given it had some decent comedic moments, I think this movie has a little thing going for it. "
