  • The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 2014

    ★★★ Watched 12 Dec, 2014 25

    Where to begin.. I don't care enough about this to discuss everything.

    It was my first time experiencing 3D 48 fps and while it was interesting, it was frankly quite distracting and didn't really add anything. The 3D is by now convincing as much as it can be, but why do we need it? I think, having seen a couple of 3D films now, I just don't need it. It does not feel like a film and even less so…

  • Hello Ladies: The Movie 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Dec, 2014

    I like Stephen Merchant, I like the show, I like the movie.

  • Interstellar 2014

  • Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 06 Dec, 2014

    Jake Gyllenhaal is on one of the greatest runs right now. He keeps mixing it up and each time I see how young he is, I'm amazed at how many fantastic different roles he has played already.

    Nightcrawler is one of his strongest performances yet. He is fantastic and just draws you in in a weird way.

    I loved the ending, really one of the best endings of the year and the music tops everything off perfectly.

  • Stretch 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 04 Nov, 2014 1

    It seems to be getting a bit of hate and I can see why. I just decided to sit back, though, and enjoy the ride and I ended up having some of the most fun I've had with a movie this year. It's nothing new at all and it takes from a lot of different movies, but it does the night-getting-worse concept well and keeps coming up with insane and fun characters. Patrick Wilson is a good leading man and…

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 20 Oct, 2014 6

    I'm a little torn on this. The rating could be a little higher, but I'll leave it here since that was my initial feeling.

    Being a David Fincher film, Gone Girl is of course technically brilliant. Not really anything I could say about it in that department that drags it down. Direction, design, look, score, acting, pretty fantastic as always. What does take it down a notch for me though is having read the book. This is an unfair criticism,…

  • The Equalizer 2014

    ★★★ Watched 27 Sep, 2014 6

    No idea why it had to be so violent. Denzel is made out to be pretty much a psycho at times. It's mostly good times but it's too long (seems like nobody can make an action movie that's less than 2 hours these days...). It's so over the top too, that it puts the expression over the top to shame. But, like I said, good times.

  • Sin City: A Dame to Kill For 2014

    ★★ Watched 02 Sep, 2014

    Marv was okay, but that's mostly because Mickey Rourke is such a badass. Other than that, everything was extremely messy and felt like a string of scenes that Rodriguez thought were cool, put together in any which way. It's almost like everything could be shuffled around and it wouldn't make a difference. Rodriguez last good film, when was that? Maybe he's lost it.

  • The Expendables 3 2014

  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 07 Dec, 2014 2

    Chris Pratt is a star. I hope he makes it through all the major films he's in these days and that it doesn't wear him down. He's got real movie star charisma.

    Still love the soundtrack.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 02 Aug, 2014 4

    This has got to be one of the most fun movies I have watched in a long, long time. From beginning to end I was pretty much smiling or laughing, maybe also a couple of instances of me appreciating that a little depth and emotion was added to a superhero movie like this. It's simple emotional stuff but it works and it pays off in the end. I liked all of the guardians which is the most important thing I…
