|40 7%||AVP: Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem (2007) - Jul 06, 2017
"Worst Alien- or Predator-related film. Essentially there's no script, therefore "AVPR" is a slow, dull, repetitive mishmash of uninteresting characters, filler sequences and the same basic action scenes over and over again. There are some redeeming qualities, e.g. two or three awesome deaths, but there's just no gravity to the clash of the two monsters. "AVPR" is not too bad for a second-rate monster movie but there's simply no comparison to even the weakest of the franchises' previous moments."
|60 37%||The Hudsucker Proxy (1994) - Oct 14, 2013
""The Hudsucker Proxy" has a wacky, surrealistic playfulness worthy of Tim Burton, a few good laughs and a decent cast (Charles Durning stands out and Coen regulars Steve Buscemi, Jon Polito and John Goodman all make cameo appearances). Still, underneath the surface lies a rather conventional story, paired with not-always-believable visual artistry, thus resulting in an enjoyable if minor fairytale."
|70 63%||Safety Last! (1923) - Jan 05, 2017
"Arguably one of the most famous silent comedies, "Safety Last!" spices up its simple plot with the side-splitting gags of Harold Lloyd's everyman persona, before culminating memorably in one of the most suspenseful sequences of its time, the prolonged climb of the Bolton building."
|60 37%||Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018) - Nov 18, 2018
"Originally intended as her farewell show, "Nanette" turned out to be Gadsby's international breakthrough prompting her to change her mind. Gadsby is a magnifying presence and a talented comedian. Despite some outstretched bits and an overplayed meta tendency and even without truly groundbreaking comedy bits per se, she does manage, through the themes she chooses and the way she approaches them culminating in the unexpected but welcome dramatic finale, to challenge our notions regarding comedy."
|60 37%||The Greatest Game Ever Played (2005) - Sep 25, 2010
"Another conventional family film by Disney which, surprisingly, isn't annoyingly repetitive. It doesn't avoid plot holes, though, which are filled by predictable drama sequences. The finale was a major cliche, while the quarrel between father and son is a theme used in half (or all) of the genre's movies. On the other hand, it is watchable from the beginning to the end, it features decent turns from LaBeouf, Koteas, Marcus & Flitter and includes well-shot golf scenes (especially the title game)."
|60 37%||Men in Black (1997) - Jan 09, 2018
"Jones and Smith are as cool as ever, Baker does a terrific job on the makeup as per usual, the main idea is very captivating, the action really good and the comedy top-notch. It's enjoyably wacky if a bit too preposterous (e.g. how will they keep giant exploding flying saucers under wraps? erase everybody's - and their cameras' - memory? this being fantasy doesn't mean it should pay no attention to detail) and more importantly, when stripped off the sci-fi, standard action fare structurally."
|80 84%||Blade Runner (1982) - Nov 25, 2013
"The visualization of Ridley Scott's vision of 2019 might seem at first somewhat unconvincing and uncomfortably dated, but "Blade Runner" emerges as profoundly philosophical. The score is a masterpiece, Rutger Hauer and Daryl Hannah are perfect as two of the humanoids, the fight between Deckard and Batty is classic and the story is one of revolution, role reversal and love. The search for God and the fear of death are what triggers the plot in the first place. "I want more life... Fucker"."
|60 37%||Dis Diefthyntis (1964) - Mar 05, 2011
"Dinos Dimopoulos was certainly one of the most talented Greek directors and, with this film, he manages (along with two of the most wonderful Greek actors, Karezi and Alexandrakis) to create a witty and charming universe."
|40 7%||Annabelle (2014) - Jan 30, 2015
"Just your typical horror film and nothing more. Nothing worthy of mention in the plot, dialogues, acting, direction, scares, or anything actually. You can at least laugh at it. The ending for one, it scores high in the ridiculousness scale. Only the character of Evelyn (Alfre Woodard) is kinda likeable and at times feels like a breath of fresh air, but also she's the one that screws the ending big-time so... Pity then, since "The Conjuring" did have a little bit of that something more..."
|60 37%||Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) - May 12, 2016
"A slight disappointment in comparison to the first film, Episode V mostly delivers on the action front but is plagued by the fact that two of the most unlikeable characters ever, Luke and Leia, portrayed by two completely talentless actors, are, for some reason, in the forefront of an otherwise fine movie. It doesn't help that the main twist of the film is a sure spoiler for everyone born in the internet age either. Silly voices and unnecessary dialogue distract from the strong action scenes."
