  • Speed Racer

    Speed Racer 2008

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Mar, 2015

    I'll admit, I've been dodging this movie for years due to the incredible amount of bad air blowing around it. Plus, as a huge Speed Racer fan you can't be disappointed by something you've never seen. So I finally decided to sit my ass down to watch this and damn was I blown away. Sure, the story was simplistic as hell and super predictable but I'm not coming to Speed Racer for the engaging plot, I'm here for the sick…

  • Big Hero 6

    Big Hero 6 2014

    ★★★ Watched 01 Mar, 2015

    I wasn't too terribly impressed with this movie. Sure, Baymax is hilarious and the visuals are phenomenal, I specifically loved how good the shaders looked, but that doesn't make up for what's overall a pretty forgettable movie.

The story hits all the usual beats you'd…

Not only is this abomination of a film easily one of the most unwatchable pieces of shit I've ever had the displeasure of seeing, but I get the feeling the director spent *maybe* $5000 of the money he was given and fucked off with the rest. Part of the charm of Thankskilling was how you…

  • Whiplash

    Whiplash 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 03 Feb, 2015

    Intense is the word that instantly comes to mind when thinking of Whiplash. Despite having a simple as hell premise there were so many moments where I found myself holding my breath without realizing it and this was mainly due to the incredible performance delivered by J.K. Simmons. Miles Teller was good but Simmons fucking owned this movie by giving us this intense animalistic character who terrifies the hell out of you.

    I've seen people criticize the underdeveloped side characters…
