    Frozen

    ★★½

    It's just another Disney film. Not even one of the best. Don't get the hype.

  • Candyman

    Candyman

    ★★★½

    Would be one of my favorite movies if it wasn't for the bullshit white saviour ending.

  • Nightbreed

    Nightbreed

    ★★½

    I hear there's a better cut. Idunno man, this is some silly shit. Some truly amazing visuals though. Barker can diect.

    This film's message: Men can't control themselves and it's women's fault when they betray their partner.

  • 400 Days

    400 Days

    ½

    A film that tries to be a mystery but forgot to make any sense or have explanations for anything.

    ★★

    I want more movies set in this world.
    This one tho... It killed some time on a long ass bus ride but that's it I guess.

  • Ghostbusters

    Ghostbusters

    ★★

    Dammit, all that potential.
    The cast would've had the energy to make this really good. The characters work in concept but never fleshed out. The prop designs are great but the scenes they end up in are pretty underwhelming. The color grading is on point but the atmosphere is killed by uninspired slapstick humor.
    The writing just dragged everything down.

    This movie is really stupid, not the least bit scary, avoids no cliché and it's absolutely hilarious. A true gold mine for trash lovers!

  • Cloverfield

    Cloverfield

    ★½

    The good concept of a found footage kaiju film is mostly destroyed by the painfully stupid guy behind the camera.

  • World Without End

    World Without End

    Weapons are good.
    Peace leads to extinction.
    Women are stupid.

    Yeah, this movie is really bad.

    One star for the nice setpieces.

  • Under the Skin

    Under the Skin

    ★★★★

    A little unsatisfying, yet a great movie.
    Scarlett Johansson does an excellent job portraying an alien woman on the hunt for men. She uses her body to lure her victims and there is some nudity but it's never just there to please the viewer. This is an art film, not a cheap sexy thriller.
    The multiple segments of her trapping various men give a little more detail on what is actually happening every time, so the film manages to keep…
