|76 T7||Don (2006) - Mar 24, 2014
"That was so much fun. Shahrukh Khan was a blast, music was great. The plot was a tad predictable, but kept itself interesting in the way it all unfolded. Kept up a good amount of twists. Having Don be a cheesy cartoon villain was fun even if it felt a bit out of place. Couldn't handle the whispered "Don!"s on the soundtrack though, that was just a touch too much."
|80 T8||Shin Godzilla (2016) - Oct 18, 2016
"Way to make godzilla nasty again!Like the original it focuses on what gojira does to people not what he does to property.Lots of films go for "realistic" and fail but the indepth look & satire of the political pandemonium a monster attack might bring was spot on believable. This is intense and moves at a breakneck pace...until the last act which either needed less drama or a couple mins of action. I felt exhausted in a good way as i left the theater. Gojira looks feral..atomic breath was awesome"
|82 T8||Fright Night (1985) - Mar 27, 2016
"Feel good vampire...i don't want to call it camp bc its very self aware. The finale has the same vibe as those "peter Vincent" films it shows..which is wonderful. 5 extra points for the cartoonishly over the top and gooey fx..illicited several jaw drops and 2 disgusted/delighted snarls. 2 more points for all the FOG I LOVE FOG"
|83 T9||Special Dead (2006) - Aug 28, 2011
"Fun offensive zombie camp for super low budget b-movie fans. actually has quite a few jokes that work...in between all the adorably bad duds."
|83 T9||Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame (2010) - Apr 03, 2013
"Slightly better than an average popcorn movie. Has some really truly magical moments, great action choreography by Sammo Hung, and the mystery isn't entirely predictable."
|99 T10||Babette's Feast (1987) - Mar 26, 2017
"I thoroughly enjoyed the casual pacing, felt it complimented well both the story, which satisfyingly weaves together past events to culminate in the titular feast, but also the quiet out of the way town where its set and the plain steadfast characters who populate it. The period was excellently brought to life by the set and costume design. The feast itself looked amazing and was peppered with such amazing quiet subtle dry humor i absolutely loved it. Nice touching ending "
|68 T6||At the Earth's Core (1976) - Aug 20, 2016
"Weird as hell. The soundtrack is spooky and sounds like a very extended psychedelic rock intro..but it really sells the film. Mcclure may not be the hero we want...but he's the hero we get anyway. Cushing is hilarious and way over the top. I didn't mind the dated effects and as i let myself get into the mindaltering soundtrack i actually found some of the psychic pterodactyl bits effective and tense(which has just convinced most anyone reading this to disregard all i say but whatever)"
|73 T7||Legendary Assassin (2008) - Aug 16, 2014
"wu and jade make this movie seem like much more than it is and actually had chemistry together. it started to feel more personal than your average low budget action movie. even the action scenes were simple but effective and didn't break the focus of the film. the ending was abrupt and was more "we're out of ideas now let's have the big final brawl" than a natural conclusion to what had gone before. "
|88 T9||I Was a Male War Bride (1949) - Feb 04, 2016
"The story is whatever but grant and sheridan have loads of chemistry. The fastpaced banter and jibes are some of grants very best. Lots of hilarious scenarios including of course cary grant in drag"
|74 T7||Robot and Frank (2012) - Aug 21, 2014
"popcorn movie. i liked it, langella does a great job and the dialogue with the robot is definitely charming. by the end i realized i just watched a perfectly entertaining movie that didn't really have any depth whatsoever. "
