77 68% Man on a Ledge (2012) - Jul 15, 2019
"So I’ll say I absolutely love the concept of this movie. I don’t know if this pertains to a specific genre, but it plays similar to films like “Focus” and “The Usual Suspects” as a diversion thriller. You can make a case that a lot of this is so unrealistic, it’s pulls you out of the film, and it kinda plays into some generic tropes, but I like it. I don’t have a whole lot of specifics why, but I just enjoy this. Might be the only Saw Worthington film I don’t hate."
84 87% Widows (2018) - Jul 10, 2019
"I feel movies like this are a good indication that Steve McQueen is severely underrated. Hasn’t done a whole lot, but what he has, is excellent. Chicago is my favorite city, so it automatically gets some brownie points. But, Widows is very intense, and does provide a lot of good performances from the cast. Some of the cinematography and brutal scenes add a lot to it as well, something McQueen should be commended for. Honestly, quite compelling, and an underrated hit."
92 95% Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011) - Jul 09, 2019
"I’ll be the first to say, this isn’t really a film for me, but I have a soft spot for these rom com, morally driven, and cheesy films. I think Carell and Gosling have a lot of chemistry and you buy into Carell and his issues, even being that I have never experienced such ones. I’m really into phycological stuff, being my age, I only know so much, but I do enjoy watching characters overcome obstacles and watching people evolve, even if it’s a bit cliche and drawn out at this point."
78 71% Overlord (2018) - Jul 09, 2019
"Definitely wasn’t what I expected, but then again, I didn’t really know what to expect...I’ll admit I’m a sucker for zombie shit, but they’re more or less a background drop to a different movie. It’s more slow and suspenseful, and given its war centric setting, it all works. The movie certainly has its flaws and I feel a little empty with the undead feeling like a subplot. Then again, I’m 19, and I don’t think this was made for the mindless action group like most my age. "
79 74% Happy Death Day 2U (2019) - Jul 08, 2019
"I thought for the most part the 1st was pretty solid, and I think in a very rare case when it comes to horror movies, this is a bit better. I love the play on the first one, I can understand how it could piss people off, especially since the science behind this is hit or miss. For me though, I love the charm and satire of these characters and I love just how absurd it is, especially with its play on Groundhog’s day and other movie tropes. Take it for what it is and you’re good."
20 0% Saw: The Final Chapter (2010) - Jul 08, 2019
"For something that was touted as the “final chapter” it really doesn’t give it any reason to call it that. Nothing about this screams “send off” for the franchise, in fact it feels like the most cash grabbish of them all. They somehow did worse than the bare minimum here, and nothing really suggests this should be the last one. In reality they should’ve ended this after 3, but really you could’ve added about 10-20 min in 6 and that would’ve been a better ending then this shit"
65 19% Saw VI (2009) - Jul 08, 2019
"Definitely has the most cut and clear story arch since the first two, but it still doesn’t give it a pass for the last two were all about, because it just creates continuity and other errors. The traps are what you expect, and they serve their purpose, but I just wish they played more into the background and let the writers actually tell a story. With that said, I do think it’s pretty straight forward with what it’s doing, and that’s better than being a confusing mess."
50 7% Saw V (2008) - Jul 08, 2019
"Yeah, I took a break from going through these again. I watched the first 4 front to back, and I already forgot what happened in this and how it ties into this. It’s pretty laughable how many times the main antagonist has changed, and just how convoluted this saga is. I understand we wanna see the traps, and I know these movies come with the tag “torture porn” attached to them, but I still don’t see why you just can’t keep the plot simple. Jesus Christ, this isn’t Citizen Kane."
76 64% Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019) - Jul 05, 2019
"I’m not gonna base this off anything that happened with Endgame. Strictly as a Spider Man fan, I have issues with this. I think you see the most character growth of these films. You feel for Peter and what he is going through, and the movie does provide a decent amount of laughs as well. My issue is that I feel Mysterio was the wrong character for this Spider Man story. Gyllenhaal is good, but as a whole, his character felt out of place for me. Best end credits ever though."
50 7% Saw IV (2007) - Jul 04, 2019
"If the first 3 somehow stood as a trilogy, I’d say it’s fine collection to the horror genre. However, This one is a glaring example of just the recurring trend in this franchise. We all know they shit these out because they made money, but almost no effort when it to these. It’s just a bland and convoluted story arch, covered up with some decent traps, and too many damn twists. Not to say that Donnie Wahlberg’s character was iconic, but they could’ve done so much more with him too."
