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!
|73 T8||My Beloved Bodyguard (2016) - Dec 10, 2017
"I really enjoyed this movie on multiple levels it's just too bad that the two parts of this film just didn't mesh well. The makeshift family scene were sweet and a lot of fun. The action crime parts were also quite entertaining as were all of the cameos spread throughout the film. The biggest downside was the fact that the two stories weren't balanced and the whole thing left you wanting for more action or less drama. Had they gone in either direction... [Read Full Review]"
|70 T7||The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) - Feb 25, 2017
"This is a decent end to the Hobbit trilogy. Thankfully this has a shorter run time than the second film since this repeats the mistakes that that film as well as The Return of the King. Mainly I'm talking about the overly staged, comic book like CGI filled hoping elf fights and the like. I'm not a fan of these weird fight scene which are similar to the ones in the Pirates of the Caribbean films. [Read Full Review]"
|60 T5||Akumu Tantei (2006) - Dec 09, 2017
"This is a very interesting film with lots of interesting ideas and visuals. HItomi isn't a very good actress and wasn't able to carry the film well and Ryûhei Matsuda as the Nightmare Detective fails to convince during his limited screen time. Shin'ya Tsukamoto however is great in his role and seems suitably creepy. The films feels more like an episode of a horror anthology show or Masters of Horror than a feature length film and things aren't helped by the film's relatively long run time... [Read Full Review]"
|76 T9||Alien: Covenant (2017) - Jul 02, 2017
"This film seems at times like a sequel to Prometheus and at other times like a prequel to "Alien" but never really manages to be both things at once. This makes it seem like they took the ideas for the next two films in the series and merged them together, by doing this they had to drop a lot of plot points and that's what really hurts this film. I'm hoping when this comes out on Blu-Ray that there will be a director's cut of the film that will fill in some of the missing pieces. [Read Full Review]"
|61 T5||The Evil (1978) - Sep 12, 2017
"This movie is fun and exactly what I was expecting when I saw the title "The Evil". Most '70s horror movies were pure cheese and this is no exception. I found all the characters to be likable in a fairly generic kind of way and everything plays out just as you'd expect. The biggest downside I found was the design and use of the ghost which just looked bad and felt cartoony even though it wasn't animated. [Read Full Review]"
|52 T4||Gutterballs (2008) - Feb 08, 2017
"This movie had shitty acting, a shitty script and surprisingly good effects. I know that the movie tries to be a throwback to the trashy horror movies of the '70s & '80s but it lacks the black humor, great soundtrack, unique look and directing skills to really pull it off. The worst thing about this is that throughout the whole thing including some of the kill scenes is that I was fighting boredom nearly from the opening scenes. The Whole thing is pretty stupid and only mildly entertaining. The [Read Full Review]"
