  • Chef 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 31 Jan, 2015

    Its good you can't gain weight by watching films, as I tried every food in here multiple times in my imagination. I been telling people we need to get a food truck, thing is they are so expensive. I sometimes day dream about that, so I thought this film would be right up my alley, sort of speak.
    The film is super decent, but I didn't like the main character that much. This becomes a better film when it turns…

  • The Paw Project 2013

    ★★★★★ Added

    Sometimes you just see something your country does and you marvel at how ignorant it is. Bless places like Australia and the UK for having the decency to ban declawing a cat. A terrible barbaric practice that is being carried out for profit. God bless the people of the paw project for their work. With over 20 million cats in the US being declawed this is an important work. I believe many people just don't know initially how bad this is for the cat. Just imagine having your fingers chopped off.

  • Frank 2014

    ★★★★★ Added

    I absolutely loved this. Shame I may have never seen it if not for some mentions by some randoms on Twitter. Loved the cast and soundtrack, which I plan to buy. What a brilliant performance by Michael Fassbender and great direction by Lenny Abrahamson.

  • Iliza Shlesinger: Freezing Hot 2015

    ★★★ Added

    "You're a bad girl"
    I like her. She managed to avoid some of the female comedian clichés, like talk of therapy and what type of anti depressants she's on. She seems like a girl you could be friends with.
    The only real problem is the valley girl voices she does are kinda annoying, but I love her "demonic voice" And the mens voices she does. Which are funny.

  • Liz & Dick 2012

    Watched 25 Jan, 2015

    30 minutes in and Liz starts screaming I'm bored I'm bored. The irony of that moment. That was it for me, rarely quit a film, but those were a terrible 30 minutes. Good on those who made it all the way through this, you are good.

  • Only the Lonely 1991

    ★★★½ Added

    A man meets a nice lady and falls for her, but his mother and his inability to detach himself from her causes trouble.

    Not nearly spectacular, but extremely watchable film, consisting of a good cast and very watchable John Candy and Ally Sheedy.

    This was a little sad to me, of course there's always the fact that John Candy has passed away and I'd have loved to have seen where his career would have went, but I have witnessed two…

  • Twist of Faith 2013

    ★★★★ Added

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

    Well I started out watching The Interview, but got bored immediately. Turned that off and decided I'd watch something with real world application.

    The funny thing is this has one of the most hilarious unintentionally funny death scenes. The faces the guy makes after his family is shot had me almost in tears. But his performance in the rest of the film is really good.

    Good faith based film with Toni Braxton.

  • Fright Night 1985

    ★★★★★ Added

    Things that make no sense about the wonderful film Fright Night. and other explanations by me.

    Vampire tells guy if you leave me alone I'll leave you alone, but guy calls the police on vampire. Not only would I have pissed off to the next country 10 countries away, I'd have sent the vampire a blood pizza.

    Evil Ed is picked on by the other kids, he becomes a red wig wearing vampire. How long before he is picked on…

  • Double Wedding 2010

    ★★★★ Added

    If you're okay watching a made for TV romantic comedy come on in. Tia and Tamera Mowry get up to twin hijinx as they meet and unknowingly fall for the same guy. Nothing deep, just a lot of fun. I have always really liked Tia and Tamera. Remember Sister Sister?

  • Eyes Wide Shut 1999

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Jan, 2015

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

    A guy a bit bored with life and mad at his possibly cheating wife infiltrates an elite sex party.

    If I had rated this film by the first 25 minutes my score would be like 0 out of 5. There are some issues there. I swear neither Tom nor Nicole seem like they could act in those 25 minutes. I wondered if they were doing some method of acting I was not familiar with. There’s a chemistry and heat I…

  • Valkyrie 2008

    ★★★ Added

    There are always stories within the stories. It almost feels dirty to think of stories where Nazis did the right thing and yet I believe there must have been some.

    The problem with Valkyrie Is that the first part of the film does not really connect, whereas the last 30 minutes have an intensity that saves it for me. Tom seems like he's sorta sleep walking through that first part, there's not much to do. some talking and non of…

  • The Firm 1993

    ★★★★ Added

    I remember the biggest question here in America when this came out, was if the bad guy was the same guy from the Quaker oats oatmeal commercials. Yes it is him, Wilfred Brimley. That was really odd to see the oatmeal guy playing bad. Americans were confused, does he want to kill Tom Cruise or feed him Quaker Oats.

    One thing I did not realize the first time I saw this is how much it follows the formula from the…
