    Chappie 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Apr, 2015

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

    The critics are harsh on this one, honestly, you can't always listen to them. In their defense though i doubt they were gonna like this film anyway. It stars two rappers whose music is something the average critic wouldn't be caught listening to. The score however, it's Hans Zimmer. He's an oscar winner for a reason, needless to say. It's fantastic.


    Chappie is a great character, right up there with Johnny 5 in my book. You really do feel…

    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.

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 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.
