    Army of the Dead

    ★★½

    I’m sorry Snyder, it’s not you it’s me, or maybe it’s you idk. 

    I want to like Snyder guys, I really really do. But besides 300 and Man of Steel(kinda), every movie he’s made has just annoyed the shit out of me. Mostly because they all have so much potential and end up being, meh.

    I have the same issue with this that I do with all of Snyder’s other movies. It’s a 2 and a half hour film that…

    ★★★★½

    I’m sorry, but this movie is fucking amazing?!

    Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers

    ★★

    Bob’s story is compelling and in light of new reporting a lot less is insane. 

    Unfortunately the direction is so self indulgent and ameteurish. I have no idea why the director is even in this to begin with. They somehow got Mickey Rourke and made him read the most bullshit garbage freshman philosophy dissertation version of narration.


    Watch the Joe Rogan interview with Bob if you want a better exploration of Bob’s story.
