    β˜…Β½

    Tau was a train wreck of a movie, and I hate myself for putting up with the 97 terrible minutes of this film. When you strip off the horrendous CGI and the nonsensical plot, all that's left is laughably terrible dialogue, Ed Skrein's dry acting performance, and (sadly) the obvious use of Maika Monroe as a piece of eye-candy.

    The only redeemable part of the film is found half-way its runtime (for which this film earns the one and a half stars), but it isn't worth sitting through the remaining parts to reach those scenes.

    Lucy (2014) - A Review

    Lucy is a sci-fi action movie about an American woman named Lucy who begins obtaining β€˜supernatural’ powers after she gets a large quantity of drugs in her body, starring Scarlett Johansson (Her, Under the Skin) and Morgan Freeman (The Shawshank Redemption).

    The movie isn’t really groundbreaking plot- or acting-wise. Lucy is a short but fun action flick with a not-so-scientific premise at its core. Luckily, the movie doesn’t take itself too seriously. If you look…
