|25 T1||Death Note (2017) - Sep 05, 2017
"I went into this hoping it would be so bad it was good. Instead, it was just bad, really bad. It's Death Note made for those who hate Death Note. "
|60 T4||Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) - Aug 20, 2017
"You know, I enjoyed that. "
|50 T3||Dunkirk (2017) - Jul 30, 2017
"106 minutes. Noticeably shorter than most war movies, and lacking in a lot of exposition/character development those other films have. As a result, I found it hard to care about anything happening in the film. A lot of explosions and cardboard cutouts, but no substance. An empty, empty film. Technically great, yet soulless. "
|30 T1||War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) - Jul 26, 2017
""Trite" is the best term for this film. It's Schindler's List, it's Passion of the Christ, it's Apocalypse Now, it's Roots, it's absolutely nothing interesting. Throw in Phantom Menace as it's got a goddamn Jar Jar in it as well. The first two films had great action scenes and interesting developments to rest on. This had nothing. Why watch two and a half hours of apes fighting against social injustice when you can watch better movies with actual people doing that?"
|65 T5||Baby Driver (2017) - Jul 12, 2017
"Baby Driver hits those beats that make up a "good movie" for me. Tightly edited, well-directed, with the soundtrack feeling like a part of the film. The hitches come in the form of the characters and what's done with them. Baby and Debra are not that interesting, with Debra being straight-up boring. There are a lot of moving pieces put into motion for the final act, yet the payoff is disappointing. Everything's there for a good film, which is a real shame."
|65 T5||The Browning Version (1951) - May 07, 2017
"This really is a one man film with Redgrave as Crocker-Harris putting on a wonderful performance. I felt for him before the film even started to tell me to feel for him. That being said, the film doesn't feel as mature as it tries to be. Some of the characters feel too much like characters, and the climax of the film is too much like, well, the climax to a film. Something a bit more quiet would have been much more powerful. "
|60 T4||Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) - Apr 23, 2017
"Waititi has this thing going for him like Wes Anderson where his characters feel like characters, but are put into human situations. The somber scenes in the film just aren't as effective and feel out of place because of that. This is still a fun adventure film nevertheless with some laughs here or there."
|60 T4||T2 Trainspotting (2017) - Mar 31, 2017
"The first film felt unique as a hodgepodge of stories around heroin users getting off and getting back on like passengers of a train. T2 lacks the heroin and chooses to have a lot more focus with one long narrative. The long narrative just isn't that interesting, though. There's a lot lacking in this film, yet it's still enjoyable. It is a vehicle of fanservice and nostalgia and that's okay. It could have been much worse."
|55 T3||Fully Flared (2007) - Mar 26, 2017
"Kickin' soundtrack, but at the end of the day, it's ~80 minutes of skateboard tricks filmed the same way. Fun for a while and then becomes tiring. "
|55 T3||Get Out (2017) - Mar 03, 2017
"I feel like Jordan Peele succeeded at what he was getting at here, but what do I know, I'm a suburban white man. Got a few laughs here or there. "
