If you want more of my movie opinions, pictures of a bunny AND some data analysis regarding movies (along with some other off-topic stuff occasionally), please check it out.

Don't worry, I will always post my reviews on Criticker too because I love this site more than my own family (don't tell them) and this has been an incredibly valuable resource/tool for me. Plus I appreciate all of you people who have ever reached out to me or starred my reviews. I can't quit you, Criticker, I just want to make some money at my website and hopefully someday quit my crap job.




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.

"Ways in which it's weaker than John Wick: his reason for getting back in, the action sequences, the style, the main antagonist. But at the same time, it's still really entertaining and Odenkirk is definitely more believable in this role than I would have thought. So while it is certainly not as good as JW, it still deserves respect as an action flick because everything it does, it still does well."
90 91% Under the Open Sky (2020) - Apr 13, 2021
"Great directing that understands the fundamentals, makes it beautiful not by being overly flashy, but because the director has a real eye for photography. But the real stars here are Kôji Yakusho, who is one of the very best performances of the year (as of writing this) and the script. Both of those components play a large role in how genuine this feels. Never boring, always heartfelt, earns every single moment of emotion. Perfect ending, both visually and thematically."
35 6% All Sorts (2021) - Apr 12, 2021
"This premise was really going to either be great or bad, with little chance of in-between. I was hoping for a clever comedy/satire based around data analysis/entry, full of character. Instead, it is rather drab with an emotional beat that doesn't quite hit. I suppose in a way it mimics the environment that its characters inhabit, which would have been great atmosphere if the jokes/dialogue themselves were clever. Sometimes it's just silly, try-hard and cringey Some jokes hit, most do not."
70 39% Sing Along If You Know the Words (2021) - Apr 12, 2021
"It does a good job of depicting anxiety. The music number was good symbolism for it. All in all a good, not great, short film that doesn't overstay its welcome."
65 28% Mom Fight (2019) - Apr 12, 2021
"It's not an original concept (a parent wanting to do whatever she can to get a toy for her kid and seeing a rival who wants to do the same), but admittedly the fight is pretty cool; much better than expected. And that's about all this is. Entertaining and forgettable, but definitely not bad."
90 91% Get the Hell Out (2020) - Apr 12, 2021
"One of the funnier zombie movies and likely the most fun. It sets its silly, animated, ridiculous tone from the very beginning and doesn't let go. From pro-wrestling moves to a video game homage to the soundtrack to the frantic/energetic acting to the visual stylings, this movie is just so off the wall it's hard to not be entertained. Some people won't flock to something like this because maybe it's too much, but not this guy, I dig it a lot. Cool satire too."
55 17% Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) - Apr 07, 2021
"Enjoyed it a bit but mostly I admired it. It's colourful, silly, and made something of Jamie Dornan. It's a comedy that just goes for it, not pulling any punches in its delivery and tone. The description on here doesn't even do justice how ridiculous the premise actually is for a comedy. Some of the jokes did work for me even while many of them missed, but it's breezy enough to be fun regardless. There's an audience for this and while that isn't me, I'm glad this exists."
85 80% Moonbird (1959) - Apr 06, 2021
"I guess I just like the idea of recording kids talking and then basing the animation around what they say. Kids have a great imagination and you never know what they'll say, so it was really fun to watch. I know not a whole lot happens, but it's also 10 minutes long and I laughed a bunch of times, so I really liked it. Animation style helped as well."
60 21% Doors (2021) - Apr 06, 2021
"The different segments start really well and, with the exception of the last one, just end in an unsatisfactory fashion. As a whole the film is okay but disappointing but the premise is fun and it deserved more. Some inspired moments of sci-fi horror and intrigue here and there, but disappointing. It was also really hard to care about the people since we only got to spend a short period of time with any of them."
85 80% Panique (1947) - Apr 06, 2021
"The mob is trying to destroy Simon's character so it's easy to feel bad for him, but it also helps that he has a sympathetic face. It took me a while to get into it but as the mystery unraveled, I really started to wonder what was going to happen to Mr. Hire. Almost impossible to feel bad for anyone else but him, but that's kind of the point so I would say it was effective in that."
