65 19% Always Be My Maybe (2019) - Aug 17, 2019
"Can't make up my mind whether that was a waste of time or not. I liked some of their jokes, although I do laugh easily, so that's not saying much. Stereotypical plot and predictable ending that will not be memorable except for Keanu Reeves."
80 54% The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018) - Aug 17, 2019
"I liked it, but it was a predictable love story kind of movie. Lily James and Michiel Huisman have good onset chemistry that makes you "care" about their characters. The ex-boyfriend was too predictable to be of any real conflict to the plot."
70 28% Tulip Fever (2016) - Aug 17, 2019
"Thought it was decent. Nothing too extraordinary, although I did like the setting and the beautiful costumes. It was an interesting intermixing of historical fiction and a love story."
80 54% Green Book (2018) - Apr 04, 2019
"I enjoyed watching this movie despite all the controversies around it. Very surprised at how hilarious it was, and you can see the great chemistry between the two main characters. "
80 54% Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) - Feb 18, 2019
"I enjoyed watching this Apes movie as much as I did watching the first one. I thought the acting/portrayal of Caesar to be extremely well done and even Koba's character to be believable, even if he turned a little one-dimensional in the last third of the movie. Like the first movie, though, there was time spent developing side characters that didn't end up mattering, like the relationship between the girlfriend and the older son. I think that just took time away from developing the main plot."
80 54% North Face (2008) - Feb 18, 2019
"Good god, I can't imagine why people risk their lives like these climbers risked theirs. So much drama packed into the 2 hours. Didn't like the girl reporter and wish they wrote the story from the 2 main climbers' perspective. Crazy to learn that this is based on a true event."
80 54% Moonlight (2016) - Feb 18, 2019
"Growing up as an introvert, surrounded by bullies at school and even at home, it was hard not to feel sorry for Chiron every step of his growing up story. Moonlight touches everything from childhood bullying, drugs in the family, and coming of age and sexuality. This was a fantastic movie for building out a character, but the pace was slow, and I caught myself looking at my watch a few times. The acting was great by the entire cast, and I see why it deserves all the Oscars it won that year."
85 68% Dunkirk (2017) - Feb 18, 2019
"A different kind of war movie than others I've seen. It was different in the sense that it was more focused on the timeline of events instead of spending time building out a character(s) to you fall in love with and root for. (Well, sure it does a little of that.) Took me a little while to get the timelines shifting, but when you get it, that was cool to see how the timelines converge."
80 54% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) - Feb 18, 2019
"I enjoyed Wreck-It Ralph 2 quite a bit, and appreciated the little nuggets of adult humor nestled throughout the movie. (Disney Princesses - rock on!) While I enjoyed the adult humor, the plot was still a little generic if not just one to make you feel good. I'd still rewatch this. "
50 10% The Proposition (2005) - Sep 21, 2018
"Meh... this movie is too generic for me. There were some beautiful landscape shots but ... what was this about again?"
