  • The Butler

    The Butler 2013

    ★★★ Watched 31 Aug, 2013

    The first thing I noticed about this movie is how beautifully shot it is and how every scene tries it's hardest to tug at your heart-strings. The characters are all pretty memorable, and Forest Whitaker's character is the kind of guy who you really want to see come out on top. Unfortunately, he doesn't face as many obstacles along the way as you would think. The obstacles he does face are overcome fairly quickly and in a brief scene. As…

  • The Way Way Back

    The Way Way Back 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Aug, 2013

    "The Way Way Back" uses a story and characters that you absolutely can't help but relate to in order to emotionally engage you. I found this movie to be wonderful.

I really found it hard to keep myself from smiling during his scenes, especially the ones where he's mentoring our 14-year-old protagonist.…

    It's hard for me to choose where to start with this movie. So much was wrong with it, from characters doing illogical things(i.e. putting silver ammo in guns when preparing to fight humans) to flat-out continuity errors within the story(i.e. Vampires inexplicably not needing blood to survive and instead just using…

    The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    ★★ Watched 21 Jul, 2012 3

    Just watched "The Dark Knight Rises". It was... ehhh. Yeah...

    Well, it had a few moments that stuck with me. I really liked the first fight scene between Batman and Bane. It was very well-choreographed, and did great job of assuring you that Bane is quite literally "unstoppable". I liked the scene where Talia was revealing Bane's true background. I almost felt like I could have cried myself. I also liked the wide shots of Gotham with smoke pluming from…
