  • Happy Christmas 2014

    ½ Added

    This movie freaking blows.

    This reminded me of that pimp my ride meme from some years back. We know you like Christmas and mumblecore, so we put some Christmas in your mumblecore. Although unless they do a Drinking Buddies 2 I think I'm done with mumblecore. I'm guessing the title is sarcastic, its so not a Christmas movie. It will threaten to destroy your Christmas spirit. Anna Kendrick is terrible in here. There's no plot what so ever. I blame…

    Amy Acker really makes this film for me. Love her. Directed by Jason Priestley Nice Christmas film to beat back all of the bitterness and cynicism in the world.

    Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your Aide:

    So last night, which of course was Friday night I'm flicking through the films on Netflix. (Which is an all too common occurrence I might add) and I see "Almost Famous." Hmm what is this about I think, well I'll just check and see. Whoa its THAT film. The one I have wanted to see since I saw the trailer many years ago...whoa that's a lot of year ago.. But…

  • The One I Love 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 17 Dec, 2014

    This is one of those films where you don't want to give up too much in the review. Wow this is one of the best films I have seen this year. It went every place it should have for me. Going to have to give it the unexpected 5 stars and say I expect something huge from this director in the future.

  • Zodiac 2007

    ★★★★ Watched 13 Dec, 2014 1

    After enjoying Seven I decided to give this another viewing. Okay lets bump this up by a half a star from last viewing. I never felt nearly as bored as that last viewing, probably because I've aged and appreciate crime films a little more. I still think the pacing is too slow sometimes. A slow burn, but a little too slow.

    Does a great job of highlighting its main three actors. Either of them could be your favorite part of…

  • Now You See Me 2013

    ★★★ Watched 12 Dec, 2014

    Okay I liked the cast. I did keep wishing Mark Ruffalo would turn into The Incredible Hulk. I even thought about how it could work in canon to the Marvel films. The movie seems like it almost realized its vision but not quite. Like one more rewrite away. It also kind of felt like a set up film to me. Decent, but missing something in the story department.

    A conspiracy theorist review

    The illuminati: Lets make an illuminati film, it'll serve a dual purpose as a recruitment film.

    The illuminati: Are you sure?

    The Illuminati: Yeah

    The illuminati: So who is this film exactly for?

    The iluminati: Not the general public, those sheeple will just see it as a normal film. Thus the title "Now you see me..now you don't" as you only think you see what's there, but you don't

    The illuminati: So its aimed at illuminati…

    No No No No No No
    Not funny like the first film. Even Boring. Sharks should have only been done once, they are boring enemies.

    When this started with the William Shatner Twilight Zone episode plane parody and Kelly Osbourne as a flight Attendant I chuckled a little. Its pretty much downhill from there, but I loved the Judd Hirsch Taxi cameo.

    Problem is everyone who should have been a cameo hung around far too long, especially Al Roker and…

    So much just turned me off on this film. My one star is for sets and cinematography. Some scenes were directed well in the early going.

    Not another people must tell the truth movie.

    Woefully miscast. The actor seems like he'd be more suited to act in a play about a guy fascinated with a horse. Film Reeks of please help me shed my magical image. I atleast liked The Woman in Black somewhat.

    Hated the use of words Jigaboo(really)…
