You ever watch a film that isn't bad, but makes you wish you were watching something similar or better? Oblivion is one of those films.
Oblivion's effects, cinematography, and set pieces look absolutely dazzling and it's the biggest thing the film has going for it. The problem with that is the creators didn't put nearly as much investment in the characters/story as they did these effects. It's easy to get lost in the SFX, but I couldn't care about any…
THIS WAS SO AWESOME!!!
I'll admit, I was really skeptical about this remake, thinking nothing could replace the precious original, arguably the greatest horror film ever made. Surprisingly, this comes really close to doing just that. This isn't a copy and pasted remake we're all used to. This has some pretty original moments as well as some nice throwbacks. There are plenty of moments that not only gave me goosebumps and left me in suspense, but they also genuinely scared…
I FINALLY GOT A CHANCE TO SEE THIS AFTER IT'S BEEN ON MY TABLE STARING AT ME FOR A MONTH NOW....
and it was SO worth the wait.
As one of the few people who loved The Collector, I was curious where the sequel would go and it...is...so...AWESOME!
Everything is bigger, better, badder, scarier, gorier, creepier, more suspenseful than the last film. The slasher continues to be creepy as fuck and everything from the atmosphere to the kills made me…
WHY WASN'T THE REMAKE THIS AWESOME?!
It's got 80's cheese. It's got a creepy killer that actually seemed like he would have handled a franchise well. Some awesome, original kills. Scenes that were not just suspenseful, but pretty scary. Even creepy. What more can you ask for?
Oh yeah....Jensen Ackles.
Last year, I think we can all agree Channing Tatum had a great year. Like many, he impressed in outings like 21 Jump Street, Haywire, and Magic Mike. He continues to impress in probably the more overlooked film he did last year, 10 Years.
The plot is simple...just a bunch of former high school buddies getting together 10 years later for a reunion. Thanks to the cast, it's effective. You've got some really great performances from a great ensemble cast…
Yep, I liked this.
Yep, I gave this 3 1/2 stars.
Don't judge me.
I think Anna Faris is funny.
Chris Evans is a charming bastard.
Ari Graynor is my favorite lady comedian working today.
I love Chris Pratt in everything.
It's got Anthony Mackie for no reason.
Martin Freeman...just Martin Freeman.
It's got the funniest sex scene you'll ever see involving a puppeteer.
This film just...it knows what I like you know?
Eric Bana is a really great actor. We should know this by now. I had no idea he used to be a comedian so this dramatic turn had to be a shock for people in 2000. Going in, I was sure he would give a great performance and even then he surpassed my expectations.
Eric Bana gives an excellent performance. There are (only) a handful of reasons to praise this film like how it's effectively disturbing or how the cinematography…
