Bio: A movie fan in general, yet I tend to lean towards more sci-fi, horror, and fantasy. I base my movies on acting, direction, cinematography, entertainment value and story among other things, and I rate on a scale of 100, by 5's. I will also provide an explanation for my ratings.
100 - If I ever have the pleasure of seeing the perfect movie, I would put it here.
95 - What I would consider a masterpiece or a favorite movie of mine.
90- An incredible movie that for one reason or another may not reach the same caliber as what is higher, in my opinion.
85 and 80- Really good films, that may have a small aspect or two that I didn't find completely appealing.
75 and 70 - Good films, that I wouldn't consider great or favorites, but were very entertaining and worth a second watch!
65 and 60 - Movies that I felt were good and alright, with quite a bit working against them, usually the average films.
55 and 50 - Films that were below average definitely but I wouldn't regret watching.
45 to 20 - Movies that I felt were just bad. Not a lot would be good here, but there is always something that keeps them from being lower.
15 to 5 - The worst of the worst. It is quite scary how bad a movie can be.
0 - A special spot in my heart for those so bad they're good movies
|20 T1||Life of the Party (2018) - May 19, 2018
"I was hoping to be at least a little bit entertained, but even a movie that I know wasn't made for me, I couldn't do it. The jokes were horribly bad, and while for a McCarthy vehicle and she wasn't bad, the entire supporting cast left a lot to be desired. Not an easy movie to sit down and enjoy."
|65 T5||Deadpool 2 (2018) - May 18, 2018
"Deadpool was definitely lightning in a bottle, but this is about as close as you can come to doing it again. They made the right move and didn't market everything, because all the surprises and fun cameos made for a great watch. Reynolds nails the fun, Brolin nails my favorite marvel character and Zazie Beetz's Domino is also a huge highlight. Good fun, but definitely a couple notches down, in terms of humor and story."
|45 T3||Overboard (1987) - May 15, 2018
"Definitely one of the more enjoyable forgettable rom-coms I've seen. It's got a ton of problems, one of the weirder ones includes the glorification of kidnapping, but that's not where the real issues are. Really, it's just a rather forgettable watch, despite some memorable scenes, like the ending."
|55 T4||Chappaquiddick (2017) - May 13, 2018
"It is what it is. It's a pretty standard movie for the telling of this historic event. The acting is solid though never outstanding, and though the set design is solid, some of the direction lacks believability. Not my favorite film in a while, but it's not bad."
|80 T8||Avengers: Infinity War (2018) - May 01, 2018
"Man, oh man, oh man. Let me preface this by saying I had a great time, and that is reflected in the score, but I think this wasn't the great film that many said it was. Too many characters, weird plot decisions, and a weird pacing for certain arcs are hard to let slide. That being said, I'll let them slide for the most part because this is the culmination of the last ten years and CANNOT be ignored. Really cool film, with major, clear flaws."
|95 T10||Synecdoche, New York (2008) - Apr 29, 2018
"Could be a movie that changes my life, or could be a movie that will make me mad in a few days and I'll look back on grudgingly. It's too early to find out, but I know that this is one of the technically best films I've ever seen. It brought forth a lot of thought and emotion that I didn't expect. Just wow."
|50 T3||Super Troopers 2 (2018) - Apr 28, 2018
"The luxury of not having to wait in between the two movies isn't lost on me. My first time watching the first happened 2 hours before the second, but I will say, I liked it for what it was. Nowhere near as irreverent as the first one, but it's a natural continuation I'd say. The Clerks II to Clerks."
|80 T8||Super Troopers (2002) - Apr 28, 2018
"I put this one off a while, and it's a shame that I did that cause damn is it funny! A standout in the genre of ridiculously dumb comedies, headed by Broken Lizard, who seem to know their way around a comedy about state troopers. Awesome fun."
|30 T2||Meet the Robinsons (2007) - Apr 28, 2018
"Though it says something that I'm reviewing this eleven years after the film's release, this is horribly forgettable. I remember watching this when I was a kid, but it just doesn't hold up in any respect. The humor is bland, though it has its moments, the animation is quite rough, and the film just feels too light to have any major impact. Not my cup of tea, I guess."
|70 T6||The Changeling (1980) - Apr 15, 2018
"The Changeling just might not seem to hold up in today's day and age. While I liked it a lot, it's hard not to see what it could have been. There are quite effective parts, but overall it suffers from some melodrama and rough cuts, that seem to drag away the tension. I liked it, but I think there are better horror movies from this period."
