|10 T1||La La Land (2016) - Jan 21, 2017
"What a boring fucking movie. The main protagonists are pretentious art students lacking in charisma or believability. The songs are often times intrusive to the plot and add nothing to the story, made worse by the fact that the songs themselves are typical broadway musical crap and they rarely utilize actual jazz. The conflict is extremely forced and is resolved in the most disingenuous and ham-fisted way imaginable. This is easily one of the most overrated films of 2016. I don't get the appeal."
|35 T4||World War Z (2013) - Dec 10, 2014
"Can't say I was surprised by this movie's awfulness, but did they REALLY need to take the name of a generally respected novel and then hardly use anything from said book? The movie follows every Hollywood disaster/zombie flick cliche as if it was routine, to the point they even use all the stock sound effects and music you've heard from other movies. The poor writing, child acting and inconsistent plot didn't make it better. Am I supposed to be impressed by any of this?"
|92 T10||Birdman (2014) - Dec 10, 2014
"Probably one the most ingenious movies I've seen in a long time, the film just oozes brilliance. From the way they do cuts and how they make use of surrealism, everything is on point and feels like has a purpose. The movie conveys its message beautifully and the acting from everyone is spot on. There's not a whole lot I can criticize about besides maybe some unexplored subplots, but otherwise the movie is fantastic."
|20 T2||Nostalgia Critic (2007) - Sep 13, 2015
"My ears literally hurt after hearing his obnoxious screams. Doug is an awful comedian; his reviews are more about complaining about films than actually critiquing them and his skits are incredibly cringey. The worst part of it all is that he thinks he's some sort of comedic genius and there's countless people who consistently praise every video he releases, which does nothing but elevate his ego. It's no surprise to me at all that his other attempts at comedies failed miserably."
|12 T1||16 and Pregnant (2009) - Oct 15, 2015
"Sometimes you CAN judge a book by its cover."
|80 T9||One Punch Man (2015) - Oct 25, 2015
"One Punch Man is a weird idea, how is it that you make a character who can literally defeat anyone with a single punch be so entertaining? But yet, it works. Saitama is a deadpan, often times nonchalant guy who takes on horrifying and/or comical threats with very little enthusiasm. The clash between Saitama's character with the often times dramatic and cliched tropes he comes to face with is a great source of comedy that would otherwise be pretty bland without him. Also, the animation is superb."
|84 T10||Ai no mukidashi (2008) - May 05, 2017
"That was one of the most insane 4 hours I've ever experienced... and I liked it! It's like the director decided to give a big middle finger to every film convention imaginable to create one of the most ridiculous films in existence."
|30 T3||The Hunger Games (2012) - Jul 12, 2014
"This is probably the most vapid "battle Royale-eque" thing I've ever watch. The society and rules make no sense, the social commentary is toddler tier non-sense, the action is shit and they do a piss poor job of making a believable cast with real economic divides. In the end the movie feels like it aims to appeal to the high school Twilight loving female demographic in order to make a profit while trying to mask this with "social commentary" that doesn't really say anything at all."
|88 T10||Three Kingdoms (2010) - Oct 14, 2015
"The show has amazing intrigue and lots of interesting and well developed characters. The action scenes could be pretty turdy, but the liveliness of the drama and the great pacing and dialog more than made up for it. The creators of the show displayed a great understanding of both the novel and the history whilist also creating their own interpretation of the era. It's a bit of departure from other 3K stuff, since it's more about its characters than the set pieces. "
|22 T2||Ender's Game (2013) - Aug 26, 2016
"Nice visual imagery aside, the movie sucked as much as the book did. For starters, the premise is utterly retarded. Why is it that a military with plentiful trained personnel would rely on a group of kids that they themselves are training to win a war instead of... I dunno... fighting in the war themselves? That's not to mention the painfully contrived ending, mary sue nature of Ender and lame side characters. At least it didn't have the moronic "kid rules the world with the internet" subplot."
