|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|
|31 T2||Killer Elite (2011) - Jan 26, 2017
"This felt really long. Jumping from country to country and location to location didn't really add much momentum to it at all, and though some of its concepts had potential (e.g. having to coax confessions out of people as well as making their deaths look accidental), most ideas were undercooked or just fell flat. And the lame, by-the-numbers romance stuff was terrible despite Miranda Lawson. I did appreciate the front flip senton while strapped to a chair and the nonsensical sacrifice throw."
|18 T1||Just Married (2003) - Jan 25, 2017
"Nice one, PSI--I was literally thinking "I dunno the exact score I should give this, but probably sub-20", and yeah, 18 seems about right. Really terrible. The climactic scene, cliché as it may be, was almost passable as far as those things go, but then they started referencing all the things they went through earlier in the film, reminding the viewer just how dumb Kutcher's character is and just how unfun their relationship's been. Actually a pretty uncomfortable watch."
|33 T3||The Tuxedo (2002) - Jan 21, 2017
"Bad but pretty easy to watch, with a couple of dumb laughs in there. "
|90 T10||Casablanca (1942) - Jan 20, 2017
"Huh. I expected there to be a 50/50 shot of me tolerating this, but nope, I really liked it! Great characters, vibrant universe, memorable lines, tense story. And well directed, too! Didn't know they could do the movie stuff all proper-like in the 40s."
|73 T7||The Godfather: Part III (1990) - Jan 17, 2017
"Had a real hard time getting through this one--took me around 7 separate sessions spread across a week or two, all told. Liked the second half a lot more; it actually managed to go from "oof, this is pretty bad" to having some great, compelling scenes. Not a fan of the weird romance, but I have to say that the much-maligned Sofia Coppola really wasn't a bad casting decision in my view. Not sure about Bronson Pinchot as Vincent, though... Anyways, rating #500, woohoo! Uneven, but good."
