  • Tulip Fever

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Nov, 2014

    Didn't know what to expect from this film except this would probably be another Weinstein's Oscar drama. But turn out this one came out pretty good and Alicia Vikander is awesome too. The story got more and more interesting by the end, so yeah, this will probably end up as another Weinstein's Oscar vehicle.

  • Foxcatcher 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 17 Nov, 2014

    That Cannes Best Director award was very well deserved for Miller. This guy keeps getting better even if this is only his third film. Carell is hammy but creepy, Tatum kills it (like wow), and Ruffalo is MVP.

  • Step Up All In 2014

    Watched 30 Oct, 2014

    I always have this tender feeling for Step Up movies. They have good looking cast and the dancing is really cool, that's why. But let's be honest, with an already thin premise from the first movie, the franchise (?) is declining. And omg, this movie is not a comedy by any mean, but I laughed so hard while watching this. Like the script is so bad, the plot is like there yet not there. The acting is horrendous too. It's…

  • Birdman 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Oct, 2014

    Truly an achievement in Directing and Editing. But all around this is a major showcase for acting from the actors. From Keaton to small supporting characters, they are all wonderful. Simmons will probably win Best Supporting Actor, but Norton is truly a stand-out here. And also Emma Stone who? More like yes Naomi Watts.

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Oct, 2014

    If you don't like this film, you are Dunne, gurl.

  • Inherent Vice 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 04 Oct, 2014

    Like WTF did I just watch?

  • Two Days, One Night 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Oct, 2014

    Hands down to Cotillard giving us two awards worthy performances this year in this film and Gray's The Immigrant.

  • Maps to the Stars 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Oct, 2014

    Moore, OMG!

  • The Maze Runner 2014

    ★★★ Watched 09 Oct, 2014

    The synopsis should've started with "Set in a nearby neighborhood with The Hunger Games and Divergent..." Predictable but still intriguing. The boys are solid, but the Kaya Scodelario is not, she can't freaking act. Take itself too seriously, but still fun.

  • Maleficent 2014

    ★★★ Added

    Don't want to say that the movie is bad, it's just the story and the acting, beside Jolie of course, are so basic.

  • Godzilla 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 15 May, 2014

    -Part of me really liked it because it reminded me of my favorite childhood's superhero series: Ultraman.
    -Part of me didn't like it because it wasted Binoche's talent.
    -Part of me liked it because Aaron Taylor-Johnson looked really cool in this film.
    -Part of me didn't like it because there was a competition of who could roar louder between Bryan Cranston and the Godzilla.
    -And I really liked the scene where they jumped off the plane with the red gas.
