    Chappie 2015

    ★★ Added

    I really wanted to like this film because I really enjoy “District 9” and thought “Elysium” was not too bad but I was so disappointed with “Chappie.” The story is sloppy, the film doesn’t really go very deep with its themes and morals despite having a HUGE potential to do so, the characters are one-dimensional and never grow and learn in any real significant way (and are really hard to enjoy because of that), and the acting is terrible (with…

  • Big Eyes

    Big Eyes 2014

    ★★★★ Added

    Insightful, dramatic, beautifully filmed, and wonderfully acted. “Big Eyes” tells a great story about an artist that I was only familiar with her work and not really familiar with her story. I have to admit that I was surprised that it was directed by Tim Burton and wasn’t feeling too “Tim Burton-y.” It was refreshing for him to not go overboard and his use of color through the film was gorgeous. Overall, just a very beautiful film.

  • Kung Fury

    Kung Fury 2015

    ★★★★★ Added

    Insane and a whole lot of fun! “Kung Fury” has some witty satire of the B-movie cop and kung fu genres and has some great gags about the ridiculous excess that was the 80s—also, it has an insane story that is too nuts to not like. Additionally, keeping the movie as a short film keeps this fun from wearing out its welcome and making it feel overbearing or like it is beating a dead horse. All in all, “Kung Fury”…

  • Taken 3

    Taken 3 2014

    ★★ Added

    I really like the first film but each sequel just keeps feeling more and more pointless. At first, this one seemed like it would have potential by getting away from the kidnapping premise but, instead, the film just goes for drudgery with a predictable plot and by-the-numbers action. Sure, Liam still comes off as a badass and it has a great performance from Forest Whitaker but it also decides to give Mills an airtight alibi that, essentially, makes all of…

  • The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

    The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water 2015

    ★★★★ Added

    I’m a fan of SpongeBob and was pretty excited for this one. My hopes were high for it and, I have to say, this one did not disappoint. My only complaint is that the story has A LOT of elements at play and each feel like they could be the foundation for their own separate SpongeBob movie adventure but, in the end, it was never too much and the film is consistent in its great animation, awesome voice acting and…

  • The Gambler

    The Gambler 2014

    ★★★ Added

    Overall, a decent film with a great cast, a serviceable story and enough drama that works to keep the story from getting boring. However, I just couldn’t get very engrossed with “The Gambler” because it just didn’t have that certain magic capable of grabbing my attention. The symbolism is nice but the film was just okay to me.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★★ Added

    What can I say about this movie beyond the fact it kicked ass and set the bar way too high for other summer blockbuster action films to compete with? The story, the characters, the action, the over-the-top nature of it all—everything about this film was uncut, 100% entertainment and high octane and super-charged adrenaline awesomeness. Plain and simple, this film was just killer and damn entertaining.

  • Hot Tub Time Machine 2

    Hot Tub Time Machine 2 2015

    Added

    I really enjoy the first film but this one just serves as a piece that makes that one better by comparison. The film lacks any decent characters that you are capable of caring about and, instead, has all the weaker and more jerky characters from the first one and lets them loose on a script that is a never ending loop of dick jokes, insult humor and the incessant need to compare its story and plot points to better films.…

  • The Wedding Ringer Full Online free

    The Wedding Ringer Full Online free 2015

    ★★★ Added

    “The Wedding Ringer” suffers a bit from some weak comedic sequences that don’t seem to fall inline with the rest of the humor’s tone but it has great performances and chemistry from Josh Gad and Kevin Hart, contains some amusing characters, and is often quite hysterical and fun. It may not be the most memorable comedy or offer up the most replay value but, for what it is, it’s a fun story that is pretty funny.

    Greetings, fellow movie nerds!…

  • Birdman

    Birdman 2014

    ★★★★★ Added

    Aside for some whiny and snobbish commentary the film throws in, “Birdman” is a pretty awesome movie. The performances are incredible, the story is very interesting and the presentation of making it look like one continuous shot was intriguing and made for some beautiful moments and visuals. It’s one of those critically acclaimed films that really do deserve all the acclaim.

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015

    ★★★★★ Added

    I’m a huge geek for superheroes and comics and I absolutely love Marvel’s shared universe. “Age of Ultron” might not be as good as the first Avengers film and it has some issues with its villain’s threat level and some story hiccups but, overall, the film is a great addition to the MCU and its grand view and scope. It also develops its characters further, has great action and special effects, and does a great job and starting to get…

  • Foxcatcher

    Foxcatcher 2014

    ★★★★ Added

    “Foxcatcher” occasionally gets too dry and starts to drag (it's not for everyone, that's clear) but the story is still very dramatic and interesting and is filled with truly epic performances from Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and, most of all, Steve Carell. I also really enjoyed how the film was edited and how would completely cut a scene off while it seemed like it was still building towards something and would make a transition of a cacophony of sound to…
