    Crap. So much of nothing happening.

  • Stoker 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 10 Jun, 2013

    Decent thriller. A slow build, but it is to be expected. I found some of the editing and scene shifts a bit odd. I liked the ending as it didn't go as I believed during the course of watching the film. There are some issues that, if I talked about, would bring up spoilers. But all in all, it was a good film. I wouldn't necessarily watch it again any time soon(The film isn't at fault, I just don't find myself enjoying multiple viewings of films similar to this), but Chan-wook Park has succeeded in his first English film.

  • Push 2009

    ★★★½ Watched 09 Jun, 2013

    After watching this film, I just wanted more. Would work great as a sci-fi tv show with some small tweaks. The characters are interesting. The plot is simple enough for a film like this one and the action is entertaining. A good hour and a half of sitting on the couch.

  • The Runaways 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Jun, 2013

    Great movie. My favorite performance by Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett. It is a real shame that this film was a failure at the box office because it was very enjoyable. Excellent soundtrack as well, of course.

  • It's Kind of a Funny Story 2010

    ★★★ Watched 08 Jun, 2013

    Starts off quite poorly but picks up towards the middle and end to make it a worthwhile film. Nothing too spectacular, but if you've got nothing else to watch and can put up will a slow plot, It's Kind of a Funny Story will suffice.

  • Butter 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 08 Jun, 2013

    I just watched this and I didn't quite know what to expect, but I can say it surpassed those expectations. This film was funny, a bit heartwarming and a completely entertaining hour and a half. Who knew butter could be so great.

    Better than I was expecting.

  • Faster 2010

    ★★★½ Watched 31 May, 2013

    Much more entertaining than i was expecting. Less "acting" from the Rock than most things he does, but he isn't excellent anyway, so it isn't a huge loss. Dumb action movie with a tweest(an obvious one).

    DAT DADDARIO!

  • Pitch Perfect 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Dec, 2012

    I went into this knowing nothing besides it being a film about singing. And I was thoroughly entertained the whole way through. It was Cliche-ridden and basically seemed like Bring It On with song. So it did not take itself seriously and that is what was so great about it. Rebel Wilson's character Fat Amy is the most hilarious and in typical Rebel Wilson fashion was loud and unforgiving. Anna Kendrick was a great lead and I am loving her…

  • Never Back Down 2008

    ★★½ Watched 05 Dec, 2012

    So we have an above average looking cast because that is what American schools are like. And an underground Fight Club for the rich kids who have nothing else to do. Combine that with a hot, blonde chick put in there for no reason and you have Never Back Down.

    And it WASN'T terrible. The story is subpar and cliche but the fight sequences and montages are entertaining. The MMA fighting is shown well enough for a film, which usually…

  • Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children 2005

    ★★★★ Rewatched 03 Dec, 2012

    Final Fantasy VII F**K YEAH! Great movie. Watched it in English so I had to sit through some poor voice acting, but that is ok. Epic action sequences although the bunch of fade to blacks hurt the flow. Regardless of the flaws I enjoy it thoroughly every time and am extremely glad I just purchased the Bluray.
