    Just because it looks good doesn’t mean it is good.

  • Chef

    Definitely part of the MCU.

  • The Master

    At least it looked good.

  • Child's Play

    Child's Play

    ★½

    Child's Play (1988) still holds up 31 years later so let’s just act like this never happened. 

    - 🚫 Don’t bother. 

  • Love & Other Drugs

    Love & Other Drugs

    ★½

    Pretty much zoned out about an hour in, only to realise I was just 30 mins in. 

    Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway are good. And at least the title is on point.

  • Cry-Baby

    Cry-Baby

    ★½

    So was I supposed to take this seriously or was this supposed to be a parody of all those films at the time? 
    This is definitely one of those “it’s so bad it’s good” movies.

  • Bumblebee

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    So I never go into a film expecting to praise or criticise it right off the bat, but damn was this one nearly impossible for that. 


    First off, the only knowledge of Transformers I have is ‘Dark of the Moon,’ with some other little details also, but there are so many things that just didn’t make sense, or were just unnecessary that I will list below.
    Sure this is aimed mostly towards younger audiences, but I don’t think even I…

  • Wildlife

    ★½

    Wildlife, more like Wildscript. 🥁

    The three leads consisting of Gyllenhaal, Mulligan, and young Ed Oxenbould were good, but the script was just absolutely horrible. Some lines didn’t even make sense lmao. There’s a few side plots that don’t really affect the plot and just don’t need to be there. 
    I couldn’t even remember the characters names most of the time even after they say it almost every minute. 
    I give this film the credit of having some really gorgeous shots, and could see the potential of Dano’s directing, just not his writing.

  • The Lobster

    The Lobster

    ★½

    This could have been made by a high school student with a camera and I would not have noticed the difference. 

    But the cinematography was pretty good and I liked the ambiguous ending.

  • Beautiful Boy

    Beautiful Boy

    ★½

    And the Oscar for the film that tried the hardest goes to...

    Seriously, what the hell was this? 
    The editing is weird as hell, the music is weird as hell. 
    Theres unnecessary crying at points. Theres unnecessary yelling at points. The script probably mentions to cry or yell every other line.
    There was a scene where they’re yelling in a cafe, then seconds later no one around seems to notice. Like what? And then a damn car chase scene happens…

  • The Happytime Murders

    The Happytime Murders

    ★½

    With a few chuckles here and there, this just ends up falling flat. A predictable plot that has been used time and time again, and can be immediately spotted from the first few scenes. This movie also didn’t utilise the R rating, as it felt most of the dialogue was made for a PG-13 movie, and just ended up being rated R because of one or two scenes.

  • Vine Avenue

    Vine Avenue

    ★½

    Dragged out scenes. A little too much unnecessary cursing. Quite forgettable to be honest. But it got a few chuckles out of me.
