    Alexander 2004

    ★½ Watched 20 Oct, 2015

    Witness Oliver Stone transform the Alexander The Great myth into a pompous soap-opera. Despite battle scenes that reign beautiful chaos upon the screen and a glorious Vangelis score, the remainder of Stone's bloated three-hour epic is a horribly conceived mess that leaves the viewer feeling bewildered and tortured.

    The pain comes in the shape of the atrocious casting of Colin Farrell in the title role who is acted off the screen by his platinum blonde wig. Clearly out of his…

  • Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday

    Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday 1993

    ½ Rewatched 19 Sep, 2015

    3. Chris O'Donnell has the charisma of a toilet seat.
    4. George Clooney's leather nipples.
    5. Bat bombs. Bat…

    The Day After Tomorrow 2004

    ★★ Watched 13 Feb, 2013 12

    It's like 2012 with less imagination, if that was humanly possible. At least 2012 had John Cusack, this had Dennis 'I have the emotional range and face of a teabag' Quaid.

    So its two hour running time is pretty much this:
    1. Dennis Quaid being out-acted by CGI ice.
    2. Dennis Quaid being out-acted by CGI tornadoes.
    3. Dennis Quaid being out-acted by a CGI tidal wave.
    4. Jake Gyllenhaal opening his eyes WIDELY. A lot
    5. Dennis Quaid being…
