|65 T6||Blackhearts (2017) - Jun 20, 2017
"Light documentary with a good angle, following 3 separate acts from 3 different continents, all following 1 goal of getting to perform black metal in the country that defined the genre. Would've been interesting to dive deeper into their motivation (the Colombian band's juxtaposition between being kids in a candy store and going all in on their Satanic LARPing makes them look especially ridiculous; the Greek NS being dumb's a no-brainer), but the concept is well executed. Much respect to Sina."
|30 T2||Suicide Squad (2016) - Jun 12, 2017
"About as dire a soundtrack and sound direction as you'll find in a film, and also super disappointing visually. It was more coherent and attention-grabbing than Batman vs. Superman, and ultimately I enjoyed it slightly more, though it was bad. If I were held at gunpoint and forced to rewatch them both I'd imagine BvS, being the much denser and more complex film, would overtake Suicide Squad, but both were a waste of time. Smith and Robbie were decent casting choices. The rest, not so much."
|20 T1||Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) - Jun 11, 2017
"Good lord. Man of Steel was a snooze, but this is bad in a completely different way. It has tons of stuff happening, but all of it feels rushed and badly undercooked. Introducing the new Batman like this, with him being completely unlikable, seems like an odd choice, and the couple of Typical Superhero Movie Jokes that are squeezed in sure don't jive with the film's vibe. Luthor being Zuckerberg is dumb as hell, also. So many villains are wacky like that already, so it was a complete waste."
|65 T6||Back to the Future (1985) - Jun 10, 2017
"Took me 6 months to get through it, but I kinda liked it."
|55 T5||Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) - Jun 08, 2017
"I dreaded revisiting this for many years. I loved it as a kid and didn't realize how reviled it was until years later, at which point I already strongly disliked episodes 2 and 3. Having finally gone back to it, I agree that TPM is pretty bad, but I actually had more fun with it than I expected to. The stuff on Anakin's home planet is still pretty charming to me, and I can definitely see why the trio of final battles appealed to kids. Guessing I'll continue to like it more than 2 and 3."
|40 T3||Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment (1985) - Apr 25, 2017|
|20 T1||Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things (2016) - Apr 19, 2017
"lol @ the wealthy minimalist main character having a huge rich person house that's half empty. so zen. "
|36 T3||Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015) - Apr 18, 2017
"Just like the original, it starts off painful. I think it stays that way a little bit longer than its predecessor (which I can't remember a thing of now, so good thing I made a Criticker review blurb about it), but then it veers into passable and even gets kinda enjoyable towards the end. I even laughed once or twice during the dumb side characters fight scene. I feel like films that cast Neal McDonough as Generic Villain should be fined for their lack of ambition. Should've used Bas."
|69 T7||Pandorum (2009) - Apr 13, 2017
"I'd rate it lower on a rewatch, but it caught me at just the right time. Great premise and an ending that I thought I saw coming but then added a nice final flourish. Lost me when I went Oh it's Cung Le what the hell and then tried to incorporate zzz actionhorror stuff into the cool sci-fi story, but all in all I enjoyed it."
|52 T4||Police Academy (1984) - Feb 03, 2017|
