    Unbreakable 2000

    ★★★★ Added

    Its been awhile since I saw this. Still a very solid film and Super hero origin story. Great concept, with a great message about finding your true mission in life and what will make you a more happy productive person. Direction is really good mostly throughout. More Bruce M Night magic please.
    I thought about the passage of time while watching this as Bruce's character ask his wife what's your favorite song, and she says
    Soft and Wet by the…

  • You Got Served

    You Got Served 2004

    ★★★½ Added

    There are a few things that would have stopped me from watching this if I had known before hand. The guy who directed it was accused of molesting members of B2K. Stuff like that tends to ruin films for me. And that Wade Robson was in here. Those who know me will understand the irony here.

    Watching the film on its own merit I liked it. Ads for this weren’t good those years ago, but this is highly watchable. The…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Hello Americanguy, this is yourself from the future. I have sent this message back to stop you from wasting your money seeing this film at the theater. Basically its a retread of part two. And I'm not going to even tell you how it manages to decimate the storyline concerning John Connor.

    Oh it might be worth watching for the cameo.

    Also the next time you decide to go commando make sure your fly is zipped, that episode didn't exactly…

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street

    A Nightmare on Elm Street 1984

    ★★★★★ Added

    One thing I love about this film is that Craven picked the moments when you are supposed to be the most safe and comfortable as times when things happened. Taking a relaxing bath or laying in bed watching TV. How about sitting in school? (Although with all of the school shooting perhaps a bit less these days.) Or Nancy when she’s at the sleep clinic with doctors present. Perhaps the best being Freddy still managing to get Rod when he’s in jail, behind bars surrounded by law enforcement. These are supposed to be safe places!

    Beyond 2014

    ★★★½ Added

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I was really prepared to go to bat for this film, its brilliant concept on a shoestring budget, but then the ending happened and that sort of messed things up for me. Its not that its a bad ending, its just that it does away with the brilliant concept.

    Lets go back to the brilliant concept!

    Something I have always thought about. What if an asteroid was not an asteroid, but a small planet with aliens living on it. But…

    Or NOT
    Interesting documentary about near death experiences.
    I totally believe in life after death, but if I didn't I'd have to be convinced that something was up knowing that 1000s of people have had these experiences. The fact that so many people have claimed they seen doctors working on their bodies trying to bring them back from death from an outside perspective would give me pause to think. That these experiences spread across borders…

  • Arranged

    Arranged 2007

    ★★★★ Added

    Two women's families are trying to marry them off to perfect spouses. And not having much luck.This is a pretty sweet film about the friendship between two people who may or may not represent groups "That want to toss each other into the ocean" or maybe just some of them do.. It really manages to highlight how ignorant racism is. Some scenes about racism were sooooo awkward.
    I never really thought of Jewish relationships being arranged so much. I don't…

    Going to tread lightly here because I have seen some great films, but this is quite possibly the best film I have ever seen.

    Old man fantasy porn.

    Oh Hell no, that bastard from Whiplash failed at the surgery. *Throws chair at his head.*

    Almost gets there to greatness, but falls short in some areas.

    Enjoyed Gere/Farmiga scenes most.

  • WolfCop

    WolfCop 2014

    ★★★½ Added

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Such a throwback that just misses being a classic?

    The credits rap song is referencing the Wolfcop. Remember Nightmare on Elm and Maniac Cop having rap songs at the end about the characters? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

    This is a fun enough film, but it could have used even more humor. What you get is.
    A female cop that looks like Emily Blunt. Cant go wrong there.
    Good transformations, even gross werewolf penis transformation, like its one of those shots…

  • Frankie & Alice

    Frankie & Alice 2010

    ★★★★ Added

    Well here I am disagreeing with the reviews on a Halle Berry film to some degree. Not usually a fan of her acting at all, but she pulls off this role really well. This is a role that could go terribly wrong and she did very good not letting it slip. I also don't get how anyone could call Stellan Skarsgård's performance terrible.
    My biggest issue was the child alter Halle does, in movies where people have Dissociative Identity Disorder…

    ★★★★ Added

    I found Her to be the strongest of the two films. It did make me appreciate "Him" more. I think I will bump that one up to three stars and give this one four. I'm kind of worried about seeing "Them" after reading some reviews.
