Bio: I like watching movies purely for entertainment,
so I tend not to care if it's a "good film" "a Classic"
or about style, technique, or whatever.
All I ask is MAKE IT ENTERTAINING!

70 T7 The Taking of Tiger Mountain (2014) - Dec 14, 2016
"This is a crazy movie, not because a lot of weird shit happens but by the way it was filmed. There are two parts to this movie the first part in 2015 and the second in 1946, The part in modern times doesn't really have any meaning to the story except to allow of a crazy unneeded seconding ending to the story. The story is very similar to Where Eagles Dare and the like where the good soldier are righteous and super capable and the villains are easily tricked and poor shots. [Read Full Review]"
86 T10 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) - Nov 26, 2016
"Once again like with Man of Steel I seem to be one of the few that really liked and enjoyed this movie flaws and all. Ben Affleck did a great job as I knew he would, Henry Cavill continues to be a solid Superman. There were some strange casting choices some work some don't with the biggest disappointment being Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. I liked the tone of the film in fact I appreciated it much more since being bombarded by the consequence free Marvel films. The enjoyed the paranoid dream sequen [Read Full Review]"
70 T7 The Last Tycoon (2012) - Dec 17, 2016
"This was not what I expected from Wong Jing. This is more of a nostalgic wartime melodrama along the lines of Casablanca than anything else. There are two stories going on at about the same time, one about Cheng as an old man and one about Cheng the resistance fighter. Both of these stories would've been better suited to their own movies. Xiaoming Huang does a pretty good Chow Yun-Fat impression and they look enough alike to not be jarring. Francis Ng is a pretty restrained villain in this whic [Read Full Review]"
75 T8 Doctor Strange (2016) - Mar 19, 2017
"If you crossed the basic story of The Shadow mix it with the logic of The Matrix and add the visuals of Inception you get Doctor Strange. I love the acting, story and ideas of the first half of this movie and then...It turned into a Marvel superhero movie, complete with empty action and visual spectacle. [Read Full Review]"
42 T3 Savior of the Earth (1983) - May 08, 2017
"The English Dub it atrocious and I wonder just how different the dub is from the original script. The terrible English dub aside this movie is still a rip off of the movie TRON. The animation is pretty sloppy and choppy. The Korean anime seems to be about 5-10 years behind the Japanese and a even a few years behind the USA from the same time period. This was a feature film for Korea but the quality was more along the lines of a cheap Hanna Barbera Saturday morning cartoon from the '70s. [Read Full Review]"
35 T2 Rape Zombie: Lust of the Dead (2012) - Mar 05, 2017
"Not trashy enough to be really fun and definitely not a good movie."
68 T6 Captain America: Civil War (2016) - Mar 19, 2017
"This was ultimately a mindless, enjoyable piece of spectacle entertainment. I found this to be way too long with too many fan service fight scenes, ie the Civil War battle, which was my favorite part. Most of the movie throws around interesting ideas that the movie sidesteps going into to focus on bland boring posturing. The weird thing here is that this is a very similar story to the Batman V Superman movie and for some reason everyone seems to dislike that one while liking this one... [Read Full Review]"
83 T10 Dream Home (2010) - Dec 03, 2016
"Wow, I had heard good things about this movie and went into it with high expectations and I wasn't let down. This is a great horror movie but better than that it a great film period. The main part of the movie takes place during a 2 hour time period and is filled with flash backs through out, which brings depth to the main character. The movie s very gory and becomes more so as it goes on. There is plenty of black humor and drama as well to help balance things out and even most of the minor char [Read Full Review]"
65 T6 Lethal Panther (1990) - Apr 14, 2017
"Lethal Panther is a super schlocky, somewhat sleazy action flick filled with sex nudity and violence. The directing is what you’d expect from Godfrey Ho so if you know what to expect you won’t be disappointed. Overall this is an action packed Girls With Guns film that gives you everything it promises, nothing more nothing less. [Read Full Review]"
60 T5 The Red Turtle (2016) - Jun 02, 2017
"This is a hard film to rate. I really enjoyed the themes, story, music and striking visuals but there were curtain things that really bothered me about the film that I just couldn't over look. The background visual were very beautifully rendered and seemed hyper real while the living creatures had a Hergé fel to them which I liked however the creatures and especially the 'humans' didn't fit in to their environments. What I mean by this is... [Read Full Review]"
