|58 32%||Shazam! (2019) - Jun 26, 2019
"Captain Marvel starts out too slow but eventually picks up the pace once the titular character is introduced. Taking notes from the Heroes series and Kickass movies they have some fun with the sillyness of the formula. Unfortunately, once the badguy comes into play Sandberg forgets what he was doing and it turns way too serious and Dark-Knightey. The movie also overdoes the drama, which doesn't really jive with the rest. At the end of the film you've forgotten it was fun in the first half."
|10 0%||Liar Liar (1997) - Jun 18, 2019
"Liar Liar is a film with absolutely no redeeming qualities. I never laughed. Carey redefines cringeworthy. The story is 100% formulaic and awful."
|13 1%||Catwoman (2004) - Jun 17, 2019
"Catwoman is so unbearable i had to take several breaks while watching it. The godawful use of loud music, the stupid story, the terrible use of CGI and the bizarre dialogues - pretty much everything is dreadful. It does get 0,1 point for every time it made me laugh. The catnip scene, the 'sexy' basketball scene and the "purrrfect" line. The only good thing about Catwoman is Halle Berry's Razzie acceptance speech."
|56 31%||I Am Not Your Negro (2016) - Jun 16, 2019
"Baldwin would probably have been pleased that IANYN is so typically American. It's overly self-important and the author loves the sound of his own voice. The boring narration doesn't exactly help and i almost gave up on it halfway through. The film does have some interesting clips and insights but it's very shallow and you learn next to nothing about the people involved. But apparently it was controversial so i guess i underestimated how ignorant (white) Americans are about the subject."
|88 91%||Samurai Cop (1991) - Apr 29, 2019
"Samurai Cop is what you would get if an alien remade Lethal Weapon in the style of The A-Team using porn stars and no budget to speak of. Just thinking about this movie instantly cracks me up. The insane dialogue, Hannon's atrocious wig, the hilarious situations, Frazer's bizarre reaction shots, the boatload of mullets, the terrible dubbing, Z'Dar in the tiny cart, the cringeworthy sex scenes. You couldn't be this incompetent if you tried. Honestly the most entertaining thing i've seen in years."
|78 66%||X-Men (2000) - Apr 29, 2019
"The original X-Men trilogy paved the way for every superhero series that came after. For the first time they managed to tell one long, connected story. The film feels somewhat dated now with it's excessive expository dialogue and silly plot involving big machines, but then again it came out 19 years ago. It's still good, especially the Rogue/Wolverine storyline. Romijn is also an unexpected standout, her Mystique is alien and deadly instead of Jennifer Lawrence's overly 'normal' interpretation."
|57 31%||Nick Fury: Agent of Shield (1998) - Apr 24, 2019
"I watched this with my brother and we had quite a bit of fun. This is one of those movies that is so bad that it's good. Campy, dumb and with poor production value. It honestly makes sense they cast Hasselhoff because it's stupid fun similar to Knightrider and The A-Team. Hasselhoff starts out holding on for dear life to his cigar but he actually grows into the role. Of course, nothing about this movie is good, but that's the charm. Lisa Rinna's butchered face is honestly the worst thing here."
|72 65%||Garden State (2004) - Apr 24, 2019
"I loved this movie when i was younger and while i still really like it the 'magic' is gone for me. The movie wants to be a bit too 'genuine', while the music almost makes it seem like a parody nowadays. But it honestly does still feel genuine and i don't think the movie deserves the bad reputation it has in some circles. It's solid, and Natalie Portman's performance compensates for the slightly overly mopey Zach Braff."
|39 15%||Mars Attacks! (1996) - Apr 14, 2019
"Mars Attacks starts out promising by actually establishing its characters, which sometimes seems like a lost art. Unfortunately after that it just meanders through a nonsensical plot devoid of tension. There's not enough humour or action, so you're sitting there watching aliens and humans shoot each other for an hour. Meh."
|66 42%||Liberal Arts (2012) - Apr 12, 2019
"Liberal Arts tries to be Before Sunrise but ends up being an inferior Garden State. Radnor's script is pretentious like a stereotypical college student and his aggressive inoffensiveness can get on your nerves. However, Liberal Arts is decent light entertainment and the supporting cast more than makes up for Radnor's shortcomings. Though it's still kinda icky that a 38 y/o wrote a love story involving a 23 y/o with the same name as her character."
