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
|35 T2||The Void (2016) - Jul 16, 2017
"It kind of feels like Last Shift, if it was less focused and scary. Sure it's kind of fun at some points and I thought creature design and costuming were quite good, but overall, the acting, the horrid dialogue, and the lack of any convincing plot or motivation really dragged this one down for me. Might be a good mindless watch."
|70 T6||Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) - Jul 15, 2017
"A good Marvel outing, but not my favorite Spider-man outing. All of these Spider-man reboots always improve on somethings and miss the mark on others. In Homecoming, I found that Vulture was possibly the best Marvel villain in years, and that the focused tone of the movie really worked despite my concerns. Yet, I found its connection to a bigger universe a little distracting, and its writing to be a little under the standard of Marvel movies. It's quite good, but not the best Marvel or Spiderman"
|15 T1||Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) - Jul 14, 2017
"This is the worst one so far. Not only a mockery of the "canon" of pervious Transformers media, but also a shoddy, horribly-written film with nausea inducing direction. The actors are all at their worst, with Wahlberg at The Happening levels of badness. Definitely one of the worst movies that may ever come out of this franchise."
|85 T9||A Cure for Wellness (2017) - Jul 09, 2017
"Most people I know fall on one side or the other on this movie, and I must say I am on the side that liked it immensely. An obvious reference to Lovecraft, the atmosphere is perfect and is accompanied by a haunting score and beautiful visuals. The acting is good, though I found Dane DeHaan's role a little out of his range. Overall, an awesome film brought down only slightly by some poor writing and an actor out of his league."
|65 T5||The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015) - Jul 09, 2017
"A movie carried by the skill of its actors. Crudup and Miller are definitely standouts but almost all of the cast flexes here. Though a very interesting experiment, the movie fails to convey a real sense of dread to an otherwise interesting psychological thriller. Worth a watch, if you're into psychology and the psyche."
|15 T1||The Disappointments Room (2016) - Jul 06, 2017
"How I would describe The Disappointments Room is right in the name. The incoherent mess of a plot and weird, unanswered questions add up, and when combined with the genre-defying bad acting, specifically from the Sam Rockwell wanna-be, the Disappointments Room ends up being a self fulfilling prophecy."
|95 T10||Baby Driver (2017) - Jul 03, 2017
"An out of this world romp spearheaded by the never-failing Edgar Wright, and headlined by perhaps the most talented cast I've seen in years. All of the characters are interesting, and their relationships believable. This, all meshing into an unpredictable story with great direction and editing, and a solid conclusion. A film fan's dream come true."
|35 T2||Sandy Wexler (2017) - Jul 01, 2017
"Another installment of Sandler plays an aggressively annoying character for Netflix money. Granted The Do-Over was one of Sandler's better movies in a long while, this is another step back down mostly due to its horrid titular character. The humor is soft, and plays it safe leading to very few big laughs. Not the easiest one to sit through either, considering its length."
|40 T2||The Hero (2017) - Jun 30, 2017
"This is probably going to go down as one of the most forgettable films I have ever seen. Though Sam Elliott is good, nothing else, not a single thing stands out. Direction is average, the music is barely noticeable, the supporting cast is average at best and not playing on their strengths. And its pretty boring. A rough hour and half."
|75 T7||Live by Night (2016) - Jun 25, 2017
"I'll be honest, I see a lot of hate put on this movie, but its really not that bad. Sure its not a classic gangster movie, but even good gangster movies are few and far in between these days. It's a pretty good show, and an easy recommendation if you don't know what to watch one night. Cute story, nice acting, awesome direction, might have been better if it were the full cut."
