  • Transporter 2 2005

    ★½ Watched 13 Apr, 2014

    Tries to be a Crank movie way too much. The bad guy and his girlfriend are boring and silly in that order. Skip it. Rewatch the first one instead.

  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2012

    ★★ Watched 13 Apr, 2014

    Not as good as either of the first two Raimi directed Spider-Man movies. Nothing especially bad about the movie, but nothing especially exciting either.

    ★★ Watched 21 Mar, 2014

    Forced, trite, very predictable. Not sure why this was such a hit. Tangled was MUCH better.

    The snowman was an absolutely unnecessary character only there for toy sales.

    It was pretty to look at, with good animation.

    At least it resolved right, but too much time was wasted on meandering subplots to give any real emotional weight to the sisters' relationship and the resolution.

    The songs are too expositional, rather than expressions of emotion. It just gets in the way.

    And why have one character with a Scandinavian accent (as a joke) but no others? It would have been neat if everyone had an accent.

  • The War of the Robots 1978

    Watched 17 Jun, 2012 1

    Contains one of the longest, most tediously boring space battles ever put on film. Watching a guy play asteroids would have been more exciting. Still, it was worth a few good chuckles at just how silly it was. It was also interesting to note the influence of Star Wars on this film, from glowing swords to similar situations and dialogue.

    Favorite line: "To hell with Lois!"
