  • King of the Zombies 1941

    ★★½ Watched 24 Nov, 2014

    This movie is absolutely a silly B-movie, but it's only an hour long and it's decently entertaining. The butler provides some good silly comedic moments while everybody else is wandering around seriously trying to solve the mystery. The mystery itself is pretty boring, with an ending that doesn't make any sense, but it moves along quickly enough and with enough fun in-between bits that it doesn't drag too badly.

  • Sex Tape 2014

    ★★½ Watched 22 Nov, 2014

That is definitely the case here, and I am once again left unsatisfied and a little puzzled…

    ★★★★½ Watched 09 Aug, 2014

    At this point, this is my favorite Marvel superhero movie (I had to think for a bit about whether I liked it better than Iron Man, but I'm going to go with yes). It's what I wanted The Avengers to be: a light-hearted adventure with delightful characters and some surprisingly moving emotional moments. And I knew pretty early on I was going to love it. Specifically, the moment where Chris Pratt dances through the alien cave. The humor running throughout…
