  • Maleficent 2014

    ★★ Watched 23 Dec, 2014

    Man what can i say about this one? It's very generic right off the bat with a farm boy who's an orphan and it feels so same-y compared to other fantasy films of this day and age. There's simply nothing new about this.

    The exposition is terrible too, summing up things that should be shown and not told to us. It treats its audience like children with a short memory span and talks down to actual kids.

    I find the…

  • Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father 2008

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Nov, 2014

    What more can I say about this only that people have already said? You know if you watched it what a devastating impact this film left, what's more, it's possibly the heaviest of its type. At an hour and 8 minutes you're hit with an overwhelming reveal and you may pause the film to take it all in. What you end up with is a dark hatred of humanity should you continue, trust me you'll need a lighthearted comedy for later.

    A great documentary film that hits you right in the soul. Watch this one but prepare to cry.

    Did i mention that our media (games in this case) get scapegoated? Cause they do, and this movie really isn't helping to diminish the thought that playing violent video games is a horrible thing.

    Yet another media "satire" that completely fails and is hypocritical. Instead of actually satirizing, the writers opted to show off disgusting seizure inducing shock visuals and introduce poor unsympathetic characters. Acting like a 12 year old who'd play the sort of violent games this movie is…

  • Only God Forgives 2013

    Only God can forgive this dull mess.

    I liked Drive but this is just, how shall i say it, dead. It feels like everything is pointless. I don't know why but it was decided that nobody would emote at all. Ryan Gosling in particular is blank the whole time.

    I really can't care about the characters here. They're all terrible. So i ended up frustrated and bored the whole time. I apologize to any fans but i cannot like this one.
