  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014

    ★★★ Watched 11 Jan, 2015

    Typical Micheal Bay movie. Turn off your brain and watch the action. I wasn't a big fan of TMNT when I was younger so ruined canon means nothing to me. I found it to be a fun movie and Shredder seemed to be a cool, yet over the top, portrayal. The turtles should have gotten more screen time, rather than focus on the still amazingly beautiful April(Megan Fox).

  • 22 Jump Street 2014

    ★★½ Watched 11 Jan, 2015

    Not as good as the first one, which had some the best comedy in recent time. Seemed like they tried to up the ante and failed. Ice Cube hit it out of the park though.

  • American Sniper 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 11 Jan, 2015

    Another good Clint Eastwood film. Bradley Cooper did a great job.

  • The Iceman Interviews 2004

    ★★★ Watched 11 Jan, 2015

    Dark.

  • Hercules 1997

    ★★★½ Watched 11 Jan, 2015

    Not as good as some other Disney movies but still great. Miss their hand-drawn 2d art style.

  • A Walk Among the Tombstones 2014

    ★★★ Watched 10 Jan, 2015

    Liam Neeson typecast again. Not as much action and a bit more story and character development. Enjoyable.

  • Tusk 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Jan, 2015

    How can a movie about a guy being turned into a Walrus be so depressing and dark? Goddamn I love this movie. Made me extremely sad towards the end.

  • Open Windows 2014

    ★★½ Watched 10 Jan, 2015

    This was an interesting premise and an enjoyable film to watch. The camera work, while unique, was a bit poor an brought it down as a whole. I understand what they were going for, but it limited what they could do with the movie.

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 09 Jan, 2015

    There was a lot of hype for this film. And it performed amazingly well in my opinion. Gone Girl is an amazing thriller with great performances from Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. Accompanying them on screen are excellent supporting roles by Tyler Perry(it surprised me too), Carrie Coon and Kim Dickens. The only supporting actor I felt didn't do very well was Neil Patrick Harris. His character just seemed too fake for me and a bit over the top with…

  • The Salvation 2014

    ★★ Watched 06 Jan, 2015

    The Salvation is a movie where nobody wants to talk. Everyone stays very tight-lipped. The main character played by Mads Mikkelson gets himself into a conflict after killing a man, that raped and murdered his wife and killed his son, who happens to be the brother of Delarue(Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a gang leader in 1870's America.

    I felt like Morgan stole the show in The Salvation. His portrayal as an evil gang leader punishing his brother's killer is great but…

  • The Skeleton Twins 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 03 Jan, 2015

    The first film I watched in 2015 that I feel I can consider good. My expectations going into this film were that it would be dark, but extremely funny, judging by the cast. Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig and Luke Wilson all put on great dramatic performances in this film, and it surprised the hell out of me. I didn't expect to feel the emotion that these 3 evoked on screen. This film will really hit home for a lot of…

  • The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 2014

    ★★½ Watched 02 Jan, 2015

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

    Finally, it is over. The Tolkein saga is done. And what a poor way to do it. Don't get me wrong, the movie was entertaining and an action packed ride, but it is easily the worst of the 6 Tolkien adaptations.

    Unfortunately, the battle with Smaug is over in the first 15 minutes and the dragging on begins. Over the course of the next 2 and a half hours, we bare witness to the battle of five armies with so…
