  • Tomorrowland

    Tomorrowland 2015

    ★★½ Watched 24 May, 2015

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

    I am not sure what is more discouraging, the lengthy build up to a bland futuristic world (at least the version presented in the last half of the film)? Or the fact that Casey Newton, the brainy symbol of hope, is reduced to a helpless damsel in distress in the last act.

  • Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

    Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 2011

    ½ Watched 23 May, 2015

    This film was like NyQuil, it left an awful taste in my mouth and put me to sleep on several occasions.

    After enduring four mind-numbing films, I still do not understand the love many have for the Neveldine/Taylor directing duo.

    Killer Joe 2011

    ★★★★½ Watched 16 Dec, 2012 4

    Trashy and surprising all at the same time. Feels more like a play at times than a film, but the performances are fantastic. Killer Joe is not a film that cannot easily be recommended to most people. However, those willing to take a risk are in for an experience they will not soon forget.

    I kind of wish the film had just focused on Jack White. I found him to be the most interesting of the three.
