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

75 T7 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) - May 10, 2017
"While its's definitely not as successful as the first, Vol. 2 has the same charm and a surprisingly deep emotional core attached to it. The lovable characters are back with Drax shining again. A great soundtrack as expected, and more than solid visual effects definitely help this movie ascend to a more than solid level."
15 T1 The Bye Bye Man (2016) - May 09, 2017
"Though this is low, I expected to give this much lower. The thing i see in the Bye Bye Man is a lot of effort... a lot of effort put in my people who just don't know how to make a movie. It was obviously pretty art-house inspired, but never hit the cultish or intelligent vibe. It floundered in bad acting, a poor script that is easy to see through, and a horrid name. I won't think about this or say anything about this to anyone, trust me."
50 T3 Assassin's Creed (2016) - May 09, 2017
"Assassin's Creed actually benefits from some alright acting on Fassbender's part, as well as some good visual direction from Justin Kurzel. That being said, it is so endlessly boring. The first few games are pretty fun, but the movie takes so much time to set up, and spends so much time in the present, which no one cares about. It can be a tough watch, but its not all bad."
65 T5 Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (2017) - May 06, 2017
"The Judas Contract is a supriringly entertaining addition to the DCAU. The voice acting has definitely improved since JL vs TT, and the actors are definitely much more comfortable in their roles. Not only that but the dark story brings this movie along quite a bit. Not the best, but far from the worst."
70 T6 Kong: Skull Island (2017) - May 06, 2017
"I think Skull Island is good in the way Suicide Squad was good: a great mindless action flick if you ignore everything else. With some clearly phoned in acting, some bad CGI among otherwise amazing visuals, and a choppy and poorly executed script, Kong offers some seriously cool action sequences, as well as tension, and cinematography. A movie that will leave you oohing and ahhing if nothing else."
30 T2 Encino Man (1992) - Apr 30, 2017
"For a Pauly Shore movie it's actually not horrible, but it has all the mind-numbing bullshit that one can love about Pauly Shore movies. Plus its probably Brendan Frasier's best role. It's really quite funny which is surprising and it has inspired a lot of my vocabulary for the two weeks after watching it."
15 T1 Son in Law (1993) - Apr 30, 2017
"Not the pure genius that is Encino Man, but a wonderful Pauly Shore movie, nonetheless. And by this I mean, its a bad film. It's not film other than in a memey way, but hey it can make you laugh if you turn literally every part of your brain off and enjoy it with friends. Don't take Pauly Shore movies too seriously and you'll be fine."
95 T10 Arrival (2016) - Apr 30, 2017
"I have to say, I didn't expect to love this as much as the critics said I would, but Arrival fired on all cylinders. Amy Adams killed it, and Forest Whitaker gave an awesome performance as well. The story is thought-provoking as well, as a little bit scary. Interesting and all in all one of the best movies of last year."
90 T9 Atlanta (2016) - Apr 24, 2017
"I have the biggest soft spot for the work of Donald Glover, but by all means this is one that can appeal to all. Atlanta is well-written, funny and introspective, as well as well-produced, well-acted, and well-shot, with a mood and soundtrack to match. I'm only not giving it higher, becuase it most certainly has room to grow in all these fields, but for right now it is certainly top shelf."
60 T4 Invictus (2009) - Apr 20, 2017
"All in all, its just so forgettable. While Freeman gives an awesome Mandela performance, none of the rest of the cast is particularly awesome or fleshed out. The story is predictable and follows exactly the pattern you'd imagine, but its not horrible, just easy to read."
