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

45 T3 I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House (2016) - Mar 27, 2017
"Some awesome direction and cinematography can't save a half-baked script. Sure, there's some tension here and there, but honestly this film acts as more of an art house film than a horror or thriller. Not only do I find it hard to recommend, I'll probably have trouble remembering it in a couple days."
50 T3 Teen Wolf (1985) - Mar 26, 2017
"The perfect movie to describe what I love about the 80's. It's ridiculous, but in the best way possible. And its not even necessarily bad. It's just crazy, and Michael J Fox shows off his acting godliness in the role of a lifetime. Never will I fall in love with a movie, that is so fundamentally average."
35 T2 The Parent Trap (1998) - Mar 26, 2017
"A neat concept I suppose, but then again its a remake. Lindsay Lohan is always tough to watch, even at 12, but the real issue is the ridiculousness of the movie. There's only so much disbelief I can suspend. That being said, I guess it has some merit, if you're 10."
25 T1 Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009) - Mar 26, 2017
"Yeah I really couldn't do this one. I love McConaughey as much as the next guy, but this one killed me. It's not funny, it's plot is a bad take on a good one, and I HATE Jennifer Garner. Never get conned into this one."
50 T3 Sunshine (2007) - Mar 25, 2017
"Looking at these reviews, i'm surprised i didn't find the same enjoyment that others did. Certainly, its an interesting script, but I think the execution is more flawed than most would say. It has some solid acting, and actually gets pretty tense for quite a while, but I think between the ending and some really rough visuals and editing, I can't give this the same pass others have."
65 T5 Eddie the Eagle (2016) - Mar 25, 2017
"I'll be honest, I really liked Eddie The Eagle. I mean I can definitely acknowledge that it's cliched, silly, and has little depth, but it has an awesome soundtrack, great chemistry and is just a good spot of fun in a dark time in the world. It's a great way to escape, and one I can recommend."
80 T8 The Nice Guys (2016) - Mar 21, 2017
"The Nice Guys is actually super awesome. Shane Black has his hands full of awesome actors and great chemistry, that you'd imagine the script might be and afterthought. But you'd be wrong. It's witty, fun, and entertaining to all hell."
70 T6 A Goofy Movie (1995) - Mar 18, 2017
"A Goofy Movie is actually super emotional, which is strange for something like this. Maybe it shows my emotional depth and maturity that I like this movie a lot, but I don't care. A Goofy Movie is awesome."
40 T2 Good Burger (1997) - Mar 18, 2017
"I don't think I can ever accurately rate Good Burger because of the place it holds in my heart. That being said, I feel like with the acting, lack of plot, Nickelodeon production BUT great children's humor, I can say this is the best I can do."
90 T9 Logan (2017) - Mar 07, 2017
"Certainly the best X-Men film we have ever seen. A deconstruction of the genre and grand farewell to an amazing character, Logan is the perfect send-off to Jackman, Stewart, and even Mangold, who will all be dearly missed in this universe. Amazing acting, fantastic direction, and a huge standard for follow up films in this franchise."
