  • The Wolverine 2013

    ★★★ Watched 04 Aug, 2013

    Metal shrimp can turn off Wolverine's healing factor, and the Viper was a pretty lame villain, but overall this was a pretty fun movie to watch. It's almost a full-on, legit ninja movie, and you can't go wrong watching Hugh Jackman play Wolverine. Solid.

  • The Awakening 2011

    Watched 23 Jul, 2013

    Netflix

    I wasn't paying a shred of attention to this movie...

  • Wanted 2008

    ★½ Watched 19 Jul, 2013

    Amazon Prime Instant Video

    Pointless slo-mo, noise for the sake of noise, hero becomes a hero by murdering random people for reasons that are never explained beyond "eh, you're supposed to." Some clever stunt work is about all this movie has going for it.

  • John Dies at the End 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Jul, 2013

    Netflix

    I have no idea what I just saw.

  • Pacific Rim 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 12 Jul, 2013

    Theater (3D)

    Every part of Pacific Rim that involves gigantic robots punching gigantic monsters is completely amazing. Seriously. Amazing. Like watery-eyes awe amazing. The rest of the parts not so much, to be honest. But you have to see this in theaters for the fight scenes. It's basically the same thing as the end of "Man of Steel," but it is so, so, so much better. I would definitely see it in theaters a second time.

  • Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith 2005

    ★★★½ Rewatched 05 Jul, 2013

    BluRay

    Rewatching, just because.

  • The Apparition 2012

    Watched 05 Jul, 2013

    DVD

    I'm not going to lie, the only reason I rented this movie is because Ashley Greene is on the box art.

    What a waste of a pretty good cast. There are maybe two genuine creep-out moments, but it almost feels like this movie's budget must have been blown paying for Greene and Tom Felton (out of a total listed cast of eight in the final credits).

    The closing credits are pretty good, though; if you make it through the movie, they are visually interesting and fun to watch.

  • Beautiful Creatures 2013

    ★★ Watched 28 Jun, 2013

    BluRay

    concept was good, but it was so badly acted and the music so awful that it was difficult to get much out of it.

  • Jonah Hex 2010

    Watched 27 Jun, 2013

    BluRay

    The Gatling guns on the horse were cool. That's about it.

  • Jennifer's Body 2009

    ★★★ Rewatched 25 Jun, 2013

    BluRay

    Still completely do not get the hate for this movie, at all. It's so fun.

  • The Grudge 2004

    ★★★★ Rewatched 24 Jun, 2013

    DVD

    One of my favorite spooky movies. It's just fun and creepy; the entire thing is made by the noise the ghost makes.

  • Meet the Robinsons 2007

    ★★★★ Rewatched 24 Jun, 2013

    DVD rental

    Kids have been on me to rent this again for them for awhile; this is one of my favorite animated kid movies. The characters are great and the world-building in the future is just fun. Need to just break down and get the BluRay from somewhere.
