  • Devil's Knot 2013

    Watched 18 Jan, 2015

    This movie made me laugh a whole lot, and I'm pretty certain that was NOT their intention.

    Despite good casting and a lot of talent, Devil's Knot is absolutely no better than a cheesy Lifetime movie. It feels hilariously cheap and even absurd at times, which is pretty ridiculous when you remember that three kids actually did get tortured and murdered, and three other kids got wrongly accused.

    If you haven't already, just watch the documentaries instead because goddamn this is awful and honestly really unnecessary.

  • The Interview 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 28 Dec, 2014

    Part of me wants to hate James Franco really bad but I just can't seem to commit to it. Ugh.

    A pretty adequate comedy, nothing mind blowing or really all that hilarious, especially considering all the drama and buzz attached to it now, but it does a good job of not making you mad that you spent two hours watching it. Lots of butt jokes and about half a dozen more Katy Perry references than one would expect.

  • Taken 2008

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 27 Feb, 2014

    Whatever, I love this movie. And although I'm sure my own father would try his best to rescue me, I'd like to officially request that Liam Neeson be the one assigned to come after me if I ever get kidnapped and sold into human trafficking. He seems to know his way around an International kidnapping, whereas my dad knows his way around Pawn Stars and getting the best deals on deli meats.
