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

T1 Bio-Dome (1996) - Sep 20, 2017
"Oh yeah, wow. Honestly, though... this falls into a category of an absolutely atrocious movie that I really enjoyed. For that alone, this movie gets the high esteem of the zero rating. Congrats Pauly Shore!"
95 T10 It's Such a Beautiful Day (2012) - Sep 12, 2017
"Man.... man, just watch it."
45 T3 The Pagemaster (1994) - Sep 10, 2017
"Looked at with fresh eyes, this movie isn't that good, especially if you aren't a kid anymore. But this film was the one that really defined my childhood and my love for stories so I can't be as hard as maybe I should be. It's a fun little story with a good voice cast, even if its very dated and library propaganda."
60 T5 Idiocracy (2006) - Sep 10, 2017
"An acceptable satire that doesn't do much more than grant a few laughs but definitely doesn't undersell on fun. It's a fun premise with good execution and a fun cast of characters. Don't expect much more but enjoy it!"
80 T8 It (2017) - Sep 09, 2017
"I was a little disappointed, but with the expectations I had for this movie going in, that's to be expected. It was still a more than solid horror film, with amazing characters who were acted superbly for child actors and a formidable Pennywise. My gripes with the movie actually come from issues with the CGI and the fact that the movie was never really scary rather than just tense and disturbing. Still a great film, but not the best horror outing this year."
60 T5 The Transfiguration (2016) - Aug 31, 2017
"The Transfiguration is probably one of the weirder movies I've seen this year. A strange premise is done enough justice, but some of the acting involved isn't up to par with what the story needs. The monotonous main lead and his character arc are also very predictable and surprisingly shallow. It's an interesting watch, but this is definitely not one of the better horror films in recent memory."
65 T5 Burn After Reading (2008) - Aug 31, 2017
"This one is more than a little odd. Though I loved the cast, it just didn't seem to be up to par with what I expect from the Coen Bros. It's a little sloppy and all over the place with not much explanation into why things are happening the way they are. It's fun, but not much else to take away from this one."
15 T1 Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003) - Aug 28, 2017
"While this is a terrible movie on its own, its made even more disappointing by the fact that I liked the first one. Bad acting, and a formulaic plot can't save the return of one of the better recent movie monsters. Just really, super disappointing."
15 T1 Baywatch (2017) - Aug 26, 2017
"Man, this felt super tedious. It's a goddamn comedy, why did those two hours go by like four? Very few jokes land, with no laugh out loud moments and very little chemistry despite a pretty good cast. You can watch it for Alexandra Daddario but that's about all its worth."
35 T2 Death Note (2017) - Aug 26, 2017
"Maybe I'll get flack for rating it this high even, but Death Note can be entertaining at times. That being said it makes a mockery of the original show, as well as its two focal characters, and the demon Ryuk. The acting is atrocious for the most part, though DaFoe is a perfect Ryuk. Even still, Wingard has always shown a flair for visual interest and in fact carries the film on Final Destination-esque shoulders. If someone is to blame, blame the writers, producers, and Nat Wolff's bitchy Light."
