  • Beyond Skyline

    Beyond Skyline

    ★★½

    I honestly forgot the first Skyline even existed, I thought this was its own thing and I got about 20 minutes into this when I had an epiphany. "Wait a second, wasn't Turk from Scrubs in something exactly like this?"
    I guess thats what happens when you make a sequel to a movie from almost 10 years ago that nobody saw. But guess what? This movie is even more forgettable and mediocre than the first one.
    Looks cool though, and…

  • Steve Martin and Martin Short: An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life

    Steve Martin and Martin Short: An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life

    This makes the comedy nerd in me insanely happy, Steve Martin and Martin Short are my absolute favorite people on the planet so I'm probably incredibly biased. Some of the stories I have heard before of course but that's okay because it's still very funny.
    Also check it out if you're just looking for a cozy watch filled with stories of the 70's/80's/90's era of Hollywood.

  • Game Night

    Game Night

    ★★★★½

    What the hell?
    Fuck it I don't even have a review, it's my favorite movie of the year so far.
    That's all.

  • Batman and Harley Quinn

    Batman and Harley Quinn

    ★★★★

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

    I love Batman. I love the comics. I love the animated series. I love the Arkham video games. I love the 60's show. I especially love Burton's Batman. I just really love Batman dude.
    Also I love this movie.
    (I'll stop saying love now I promise)
    It's short, precise, and gets straight to the point. What I like about these animated superhero films is that they're basically one shots you don't have to watch 60 other films just to get…

  • Pitch Perfect 3

    Pitch Perfect 3

    ★★★½

    I love John Lithgow. I truly do. But I feel like his entire plot should have been removed, A film series about an Acapella group doesn't have to be complicated.

    But everything else is a nice send-off to a series I probably enjoy more than I should.
    Also more Hailee Steinfield is always much appreciated.

  • Highway to Hell

    Highway to Hell

    ★★★★½

    I can't believe Ben Stiller regrets Highway to Hell of all things, especially when films like Envy and Permanent Midnight exist. This film is absolutely fantastic, it's so unique that it's truly a sight to behold.
    I loved it because of course I did.

    I'm always glad when blind buy Blu-rays pay off, this one did ten fold.

  • Dying to Belong

    Dying to Belong

    ★★★½

    Ghosts? Not scary. Monsters? Pussy shit. Becky from Roseanne? For God sakes run away!

    This movie is hilarious, I actually really like it. The Dean of the college in this is rocking some Eric Roberts from The Ambulance plumage, what's not to like?
    I discovered not too long ago that I really like cheesy Lifetime movies from the 90's. I'm not gonna watch any past the 90's though, Even I have my limits.

    I honestly recommend this it isn't so bad it's good, but it takes itself so seriously that it's really charming

  • The Week Of

    The Week Of

    ★★★½

    Say what you will about Adam Sandler but the dude gets shit done.
    he's infamous for being an extremely nice guy, he keeps all of his friends working, he can make whatever movie he wants and he makes a fuck ton of money doing it.
    I hate to say it but Adam Sandler is truly living the American Dream.

    The Week Of isn't bad at all, sure there is a lot of bad sometimes terrible jokes but there is some…

  • Kodachrome

    Kodachrome

    ★★★★

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

    (I forgot to mark this for spoilers, I feel like a huge asshole and I'm sorry if I ruined the film. I rectified my mistake now though)

    The scene where Matt finds Ben after he succumbed to his terrible disease, is some of the best no dialogue acting I have seen in a very long time. It was beautifully done, and Jason Sudekis is totally underrated as an dramatic actor.
    Kodachrome is melancholy, it's quiet, it has a fantastic soundtrack,…

  • Home for the Holidays

    Home for the Holidays

    ★★★★½

    I'm thinking Roy Moore watched this before writing Black Christmas, because Barbara Walter's character Fredy is very similar to Margo Kidder's Barb. Or it's a coincidence and I don't know what I'm talking about.
    Black Christmas is obviously the superior film but Home for the Holidays is actually pretty damn good!
    It has a stellar cast, that 70's TV movie charm that permeates throughout, a slow but methodical pace, and some well thought out if rather macabre family drama.
    I…

  • Uptown Girls

    Uptown Girls

    ★★★★

    Brittany Murphy truly had a talent, she could make any slightly cliche film into something special with her wit, beauty, and charm.
    This would probably be mediocre without her but with her it's actually a pretty good little hidden gem from the 2000's.
    I recommend it, it's a tad girly but there's nothing wrong with that, eh?

    Also it's hilarious that Molly's dad name was Tommy Gunn, considering what the real Tommy Gunn does for a living.

  • Day of the Dead: Bloodline

    Day of the Dead: Bloodline

    ★★

    Who watched the original Day of the Dead and thought "this movie is great and all but what if Bub was Mark Wahlberg from Fear?"

    I was more entertained by Contagion and the Nick Cannon one, not even kidding.

    4 "choke on em" outta 10
