    This Is Where I Leave You 2014

    ★★★ Watched 28 Aug, 2015

    I've got mixed feeling for this film. I didn't hate it, I liked certain aspects of the story but overall I sorta kinda liked it. I'm definitely in between the love and hate stage for this.

    I haven't read Jonathan Tropper's novel but since he wrote the screenplay I'm assuming it's a close adaptation. It's probably a great read but a great movie it did not make for me. It was a nice change of pace to watch a slow…

    Hello Sister, Goodbye Life 2006

    ★★½ Watched 25 Aug, 2015

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

    I'm not sure why I choose to view this today but I did feel the need to watch some forgettable sweet fluff. Plus I really do love television movies so any excuse is a good one. Wether it's the melodramatic madness of Lifetime, the wholesome romance of Hallmark, the family driven drama of the Up Network or the sex deprived, sex obsessed, murdering deaf teenagers of ABC Family I'm in. Do I need an intervention, probably. Apparently this telefilm is…

    Surprisingly decent but overall boring. The book was boring as well. Some cringe worthy roll your eyes dialog but it's expected and sometimes straight from the source material. I was surprised at how close it was to the novel, few things were changed and for the most part it was an improvement. This film is actually better then it's source material. Hands down this whole thing rests on Dakota Johnson's shoulders. She is absolutely adorable and she sells not only…

  • Commando

    Commando 1985

    ★★★★ Rewatched 25 Apr, 2015

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

    During my rewatch I realized that outside of the typical 80s movie score, the pay phones and the poor tasting Boy George joke, Commando is pretty ageless. A solid film with some great action. It's super awesome.

    There's something about action films of the 80s that I love. It's probably because that's what I grew up on and the nostaliga factor is high. My top three are The Delta Force, Cobra and my favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger film, Commando. Every time…
