  • The Legend of Hercules 2014

    ★★ Watched 26 Nov, 2014

    This is one of those weird films that exists in being terrible for being so mediocre. It's not good, I mean with Renny Harlin at the helm who expected it to be, and it's definitely not bad enough to be entertaining either. It's a film that has no idea what it wants to be in the end too. The first act is pure 300 worship, the second act is Gladiator knock off, and the third act does it's best to…

  • See No Evil 2 2014

    ★★½ Watched 24 Nov, 2014

    While this generally unwanted sequel does improve on the ridiculousness and style vomit of the first flick, See No Evil 2 almost takes itself too seriously this time around.

  • The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 2014

    ★★★ Watched 23 Nov, 2014

It's a 2 hour set up for the second part where all the pay off is (hopefully) going to reside. It's build, build, build...and a terrible cliffhanger that didn't actually solve anything. It's not a movie. It's the first half of a movie that I'll have to spend another $10 to see the actual ending to. #CashGrab

  • The Town that Dreaded Sundown 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Nov, 2014

    While the film tends to be a bit cliche in the final act, if you have seen the original film then this will a rather fascinating watch. The way that it's a sort of meta-sequel/remake and how it pulls similar scenes and beats and twists them in modern ways is actually rather impressive. Not to mention that the director does his best to create a visual experience that makes it feel like it should have gotten a pretty legit theatrical…
