You can expect to see movie reviews/talk, weekly top 5s on various things, comedy videos/short films, and other silliness that we get up to. Would appreciate a subscribe!

Anything 51 and up is a recommendation, meaning you aren't wasting your time seeing it. Anything between 51-79 ranges from mediocre to very good. Anything 80+ is what I call a "Great Movie" and it's a must-see and is awesome to various degrees. Anything that's a 50 is something that I'm a fence sitter on (meaning I'm too useless to actually be able to make up my god damn mind) so it could go either way. 49 and under means you should avoid. Under 10 means I was probably raped by the movie or, at the very least, fondled. Despite the effort I've put into explaining my rating system, numbers are fairly often chosen at random (well, maybe my gut feeling) so I might actually like a movie I rated 75 more than an 85, I just really can't be bothered to go back and constantly re-do my ratings.

"The Imposter was a huge WTF for me and I think it's a better flick, but this is really great too. Because of the choice that Layton made to add the talking head docu element to it there was a level of sympathy/humanity present that may not have been there otherwise. Fiction can definitely hit that and every actor did great, but seeing the real people added something. It's a sloppy heist, but it's also based on reality so can't fault it there. It's a fairly unique heist movie, above all else."
70 38% Upgrade (2018) - Aug 14, 2018
"A grimy sci-fi revenge flick that was certainly entertaining the entire time, while not being especially memorable. But that's okay because all I really need from these genre flicks is a good time, and it delivers. Sometimes Marshall-Green's acting left a little to be desired, but for the most part he was passable. The violence was pretty brutal and unflinching, but as a whole it didn't exactly add a whole lot to the genre. But again, that's okay."
65 27% Heavy Trip (2018) - Aug 13, 2018
"Since metal isn't that represented it's always nice to see a movie about it. If you understand the clich├ęs and tropes of metal then there are some good jokes here, but they are few and far between. It doesn't really hit satisfying emotional depths and since there isn't a lot of comedy to bail it out it ends up being a pretty fun but ultimately insubstantial little flick about a culture that your average person doesn't care to indulge in."
65 27% Gemini (2017) - Aug 13, 2018
"Entertaining, murder mysteries are generally fun until they aren't. It all comes down to the resolution and this didn't have one that will blow minds exactly, but the execution of it as a whole is pretty solid; the electropop and moody atmosphere helps, certainly."
75 50% Tag (2018) - Aug 11, 2018
"It's not a real funny comedy, which I guess sounds like a failure, but it does have some good jokes and some of these people have good chemistry and are just charming outright. But I enjoyed it because it had heart and this premise is awesome. It warms my heart that there are grown men out there who are doing/did this, and I think that comes out wonderfully in this flick. The ending is also emotional, funny and joyful without being ridiculous. "
90 92% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) - Aug 10, 2018
"The best since the first one, which was entirely different but still. I want to give this a 95, and maybe later on I will, but this is exactly what one should expect from both the series and action movies. Awesome stunts/action set pieces, charm and a hell of a lot of plot swerves... did I want anything else? Nope. So while it plays it safe, technically, it delivers on all fronts. This is in large part to the dedication to both craft and character that Cruise constantly displays."
35 7% Little Star (2017) - Aug 07, 2018
"It is just a tedious exercise in voyeurism. The exposition that Markey lays down occasionally just comes across as cheesy, and it wants to go for some deep psychological drama but it can't hit any of the notes that it wants to. It's obvious what it's trying to say but the leaps it takes to say it come across as forced, like they didn't really have a plot originally. But the tedium is the biggest offender, for sure."
90 92% Return to the 36th Chamber (1980) - Aug 05, 2018
"I'm gonna be honest, I actually like this one more than the first film a by a little bit because the comedy actually did make me laugh. It follows a similar pattern to the first film, but it riffs on it a little bit, it makes the main character a bit of an idiot. But I was entertained by it, and while it's not as bloody/violent, the choreography is just as solid here, which makes the final battle incredibly exciting. "
85 80% 36th Chamber of Shaolin (1978) - Aug 05, 2018
"This is more serious than Return to the 36th Chamber. Bad thing happens, guy goes to train at the Shaolin Temple, then comes back and has an expertly choreographed final act because obviously the fighting is the star. It's just really inventive and thrilling. More blood and death than its "sequel" as well. "
