Bio: I rank films and I'm vulgar.
|78 73%||Bernie (2012) - Jul 02, 2019
"Jack Black really rocks this role. And based on a true story, too. Black can be a very versatile actor when he's not type cast. This movie is as solid as the rest of Linklater's work. "
|93 96%||Avengers: Infinity War (2018) - Jun 09, 2019
"A new bar for the Marvel universe and super hero movies everywhere. Movie does not let go. It starts action packed, and it just keeps going, beautifully weaving together multiple films and characters from the franchise. The film maintained focus and set up Endgame quite nicely, too."
|81 80%||Spectre (2015) - Apr 23, 2019
"It can't compare to Casino Royale or Skyfall. The ending is awful, the action sequences are awful, and the best part of the movie was actually Ralph Fiennes as M."
|86 89%||Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) - Apr 06, 2019
"Spider-Man finally comes home to Marvel, and in a "spectacular" fashion. Tom Holland is the greatest Spider-Man, and we can finally get past the origin story and into what a teenage Spider-Man is all about. Vulture makes a great first villain for a new hero. This is the Spider-Man that we needed, and with an actor who is young enough to play him in a legit franchise. There is enough to do with Spider-Man, I really hope we see a couple of decades of these films."
|78 73%||House of Cards (2013) - Mar 09, 2019
"I lost interest before the end of the first season. However, I did enjoy rooting for Kevin Spacey up until he became irredeemable in my eyes. After that point, I can't empathize, and I lose interest. "
|85 87%||John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) - Mar 09, 2019
"It isn't as charming as the first film. However, it does up the action. I will continue to watch Keanu Reeves kick ass as long as he wants to keep making these movies. The action sequences are top-notch, and that's the only reason anyone watches these things, yeah?"
|66 43%||Kong: Skull Island (2017) - Feb 24, 2019
"It's an action film. Take it for an action film and don't think too hard about it. I really liked John C. Reilly's character. In fact, the cast in general was really solid. This isn't a great film, but if you want mindless action done rather well, this will not disappoint. "
|87 90%||The Raid: Redemption (2012) - Feb 13, 2019
"Intense. The movie ramps up nicely through to some incredibly amazing fight sequences at the end. It includes just enough plot and character development to not be a hollow shell, and balances the over-the-top action with just enough drama and human element so the movie doesn't get stale. Gareth Evans did an admirable job."
|73 61%||Passengers (2016) - Dec 24, 2018
"This movie had a lot of potential do so some cool stuff, but it failed to explore all the cool sci-fi stuff it could have. It also failed to fully explore more psychological angles. I really think the film should have embraced a different tone, but it was going for something I didn't quite understand. It is a solid premise, though done before, and the effects were good, so I enjoyed watching it the one time, but probably never again. "
|80 78%||Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) - Dec 09, 2018
"You know... it worked. As many issues they had while filming this, it turned out alright. I wish they hadn't included quite so many "backstory" moments for Han. Could have done a passable job if perhaps they stretched the time frame of the film out to include several years of his life. Great casting, some great action sequences, and it did feel like a Western. I would rank this squarely above half of the "main" franchise films (prequels and episode VIII, at least). "
