  • Star Trek Into Darkness 2013

    ★★★★½ Added

    Just a beautiful film where everything just looks right. So good on the 3D TV. They got the casting very right for these films. I'm still unhappy that William Shatner does not have a cameo. I was glad to see the fur ball Tribble being studied by Dr. McCoy as The Trouble with Tribbles is one of my favorite original series episodes.

    I enjoyed the story for the most part. I still feel like there's a stronger story waiting to…

  • +1 2013

    ★★★ Added

    What if the moment you're in right now separated and that moment was trying to catch up to this moment?

    This movie contains a party with annoying teens, most of whom don't look like teens, so likely 30+year olds acting like teens. Plus no matter what they did to make the party look fun it still looked lame. Maybe if I was like 14 again it would look cool, but I doubt it. Sex scene felt a bit overlong gratuitous.…

  • Brown Sugar 2002

    ★★★ Added

    They meet as children, have a shared love of hip hop, but growing up together they choose to just stay friends, however in adulthood they become jealous and possessive of each other.

    Not as good as Love and Basketball, but if you're in the mood for this type of film you should be okay here. Main cast is decent and I liked the supporting cast too. Mos Def who's a supporting(fictional) character is really solid in here. Him trying to…

  • Snowpiercer 2013

    ★★★★½ Added

    A train is the last shelter on earth. The train is divided by classes, the people at the front of the train live in luxury and are powerful enough to keep it that way. The poor mistreated are at the back and tired of being abused.

    Your ability to enjoy Snowpiercer will depend on if you will allow yourself to entertain a little over the top absurdity at times. If you expect this to be super serious all the time…

  • This Is the End 2013

    ★½ Added

    Biggest piece of product placement I have ever seen, its pretty much just a giant weed ad.

    Not nearly enough Emma Watson.

    Just when 21 Jump street had done work to repair Jonah Hill in my eyes this movie regresses him.

    A few funny bits, but a gag that gets old quick half way through.

  • Free Willy 1993

    ★★★★★ Added

    Before Free Willy no one cared about whales or little white kids and their anguish. Afterward it was like whales and little white kids have problems too. :o We wanted to kill Jaws why does Willy get a pass? Okay well Willy was a little cuter and not killing humans for having sex in beach water.

    Seriously I love this film, really its the perfect family film. I mean its like someone giving you a Mcdonalds gift coupon book and…

    ★★★ Added

    From the makers of 11 11 11 comes 13 13 13

    On 131313 people who are not born on a leap year go crazy and start attacking each other. Its intentionally trying to make you laugh and I found it funny for the most part.

  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1956

    ★★★★★ Added

    Part of my score is on the bases that this has spawned so many enjoyable films for me. I really love this story. I have been enjoyed and been creeped out by it for years. Watching yesterday I thought about the similarity with Nightmare on Elm St. They get you when you sleep. But not all the time, but you still have to sleep again at some point and there will be another chance. I really believe that the Nicole Kidman Daniel Craig version matches this one in spirit and is underrated as it like this does a good job with tension and philosophical questions.
