    In Too Deep 1999

    ★★★ Added

    Decent enough undercover film.

    One issue that arises in this film is that Omar Epps character, who is an undercover cop is supposed to be great at fitting in with a gang, but I had a hard time believing that they would have not known he was an undercover cop. The part where the Latino girl confirms he is a cop was a mistep, don't think anyone would have not believed her at that point. Later Omar's character becomes more…

    I loved the pacing and the casting. Bourne light, but pretty fun.

    I feel like I asked the genie from the wishmaster to give me a smarter better horror film and this was what resulted. Now that guy never grants peoples wishes in the way they'd think only perversions of their wishes.

    I’m really not enjoying these kind of horror films. Whenever a horror seems to get mainstream approval these days I get a feeling its going to be one of these type of films. Now I wouldn’t argue that these are…

    Deep in the Darkness 2014

    ★½ Watched 18 Jul, 2015

    Don't worry I wont be singing this review like I did my last one.

    Creatures living under a town demand a sacrifice from the residents.

    I really wanted to like this, but its just not very good. Its almost identical storyline to Kevin Costner's film "The New Daughter." Almost exact same slow pacing. It seems like they took out some of the parts from the novel that would have made the film make more sense.

    I was just wandering what happened to Sean Patrick Thomas the other day.

    Chris Tucker: Live 2015

    ★★★★ Added

    This starts out kinda ho-hum, its like he's heating up as it gets better and better as it goes along. However after awhile the laughs were coming frequently for me. I think sometimes he sounds exactly like Eddie Murphy a bit much. Chris is pretty good at physical comedy. The best parts are the MJ part, even though I'd seen that bit before. I imagine Chris MJ Barry Gibb and the dog happened just like that. I love his Bill…

    Slow West 2015

    ★★★ Added

    I thought of a good way to describe this film while watching. All dressed up and nowhere to go. Its a beautiful looking film, very nice cinematography and from that viewpoint it stays winning. After a bit of the visuals and that nice waltz theme, I started to see just how thin the story was. Furthermore it gets too slow about 75 percent in, not a good thing. The end recovers it some. Could have been one of the best…

    ★★★ Added

    This was a weird watch. I sat through the early part not being able to figure out exactly all that was wrong, but came to the conclusion it didn't not feel authentic enough, especially in the atmosphere department. Then I noticed the editing is messed up, scenes are thrown in at random times, lets throw a sex scene here, there, everywhere. It kind of all feels first time director, but I thought the 2nd half was much smoother and the…

    ★★★½ Added

    How far would you go to give your child a good life? In a world where jobs are scarce and times are tough for women in particular a single mom makes the ultimate sacrifice.
    This movie takes a bit to set up a second half that should have had longer to play out. Sometimes you wish a film had a little more money to play with in the looks department. Its supposed to be a futuristic world, but it doesn't…

    Terminator Genisys 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 03 Jul, 2015

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

    Terminator Genisys doesn’t quite go in the direction you’d want it to go if it were trying to revive the franchise. That doesn’t mean that it is not still a fun film. That Terminator story from the first films is just so good; it’s hard for me not to enjoy a Terminator movie that recalls that. Machines trying to take over, sending machines back through time to stop the person that will destroy them. I just love the sci fi…

    Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives 1986

    This use to always be my favorite one. My confession is that I wanted to be Tommy, because I was totally in love with Jennifer Cooke. It didn't even matter if she was being hunted by a hockey masked killer super human thingy. I would have probably transported myself into the film to spend a little time with Jennifer, preferably on that car scene where she tells Tommy to stay down. muahahahahaha
