Bio: Someday I plan to become a screenwriter and director. In the meantime, I'm just a guy who loves movies. Favorite genres: Action, Crime, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Drama and Thriller. Least favorites: Horror, Romance, Obscure and Westerns. Of course, even when I find a movie I don't necessarily like, but it's well done, I can still respect it. I think I judge a movie primarily on it's story; whether or not I was drawn in and kept in till the end.

87 T9 Baby Driver (2017) - Jul 08, 2017
"Now THAT's how you use a soundtrack! "
51 T2 Splice (2010) - Jul 02, 2017
"This movie starts out as your typical boring sci-fi movie that seems like it wants to be horror. After a while it becomes a bit more interesting, and then it descends into an awful muss, with one fucked up scene quickly following the other. "
69 T4 Superman vs. the Elite (2012) - Jul 02, 2017
"Really doesn't deliver its message well. You'll get to the last few minutes and say "Wait, you mean I wasn't supposed to agree with the Elite?""
74 T5 Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003) - Jun 25, 2017
"The story is better this time around than the first two in the Mexico Trilogy, but the pacing still feels very off to me. Also, is it me, or could the backstory of Carolina and the daughter's deaths have been done a lot better? The new characters are interesting enough despite minimal screen time (except Sands who maybe got too much early on), and it's nice to see the action only gets more entertaining as the films go on. "
76 T5 Desperado (1995) - Jun 25, 2017
"Arguably better than El Mariachi; the intro is way batter (though the ending isn't as strong), it has more interesting characters (though we don't get enough of Buscemi or Trejo's characters), Banderas is a better Mariachi (though there's too much time spent reflecting on the last film), and the humor and action are both greatly improved on (though the story is even more drawn out and oddly paced than before). "
74 T5 El Mariachi (1993) - Jun 23, 2017
"Story has a lot of really slow, drawn out, boring moments, but the action compensates very well, and the final act is incredible. Impressive quality given its budget, and Rodriguez has a really good eye with the camera. "
70 T4 Slither (2006) - Jun 18, 2017
"Somewhere between too campy and stupid to be a legit horror movie, and too well shot and interesting to be a B-movie. "
82 T7 Don't Breathe (2016) - Jun 12, 2017
"Really gotta admire how simple yet brilliant the concept is: it creates a ton of natural suspense and manages to elicit a genuine feeling of being there (the lights out scene was especially well done). However it still has problems. The side characters are ungodly annoying, the third act descends into some really out there stuff, but overall a very good step in the horror genre. "
80 T7 Wonder Woman (2017) - Jun 11, 2017
"Suffers from overly recycled plot threads (fish out of water, overprotective parent, etc.), Ares being miscast, as well as certain scenes that undermine and contradict central themes it tries to establish. That and, while not directing, Snyder's trademark slow-mo action is very over used. Aside from all of that, Wonder Woman is a great character portrayed brilliantly by Gadot, and this movie, while this doesn't say much, is DC's best outside of the Batman franchise. "
77 T5 Tango & Cash (1989) - Jun 08, 2017
"Yes, yes, but come on, this movie is a ton of fun! It wastes no time exercising its abundance of cliches and one liners, keeps the action energized and the characters totally in their zones. Russell clearly has more natural charisma, so it would have made sense for Stallone to play his character a little more clean cut, decrease on the quips. Still, it's a great fun, admittedly dumb, worthwhile action flick. "
