    Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

    ★★½

    “My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined”

    Not really, but is it just me or did this not come anywhere near the original? With the first Borat film, Sacha Baron Cohen wanted to expose the deep seeded racism in America, but unfortunately since the release of the first Borat, that racism has made itself broadly known. So instead Sacha Baron Cohen opted to try and expose the humanity of America during a highly contentious time. This leads to…

  • Radio Rebel

    ★★½

    Best performance from an actress ever? Probably.

  • Over the Hedge

    Over the Hedge

    ★★½

    Really progressive of Over the Hedge to have its main villain be a literal Karen all the way back in 2006.

  • Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey

    Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey

    ★★½

    I really was enjoying this until they escaped hell, everything after that was really uninteresting to me unfortunately. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are still great, and like I said there are some awesome scenes, but even still Excellent Adventure is way better.

  • Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    ★★½

    I'm honestly conflicted about this. It's well made and Zac Efron is genuinely so fucking phenomenal as Ted Bundy that's its actually creepy. Talk about perfect casting. Jim Parsons, Lily Collins, and Haley Joel Osmond also all give great supporting performances with limited screen time. My issue is that the movie really felt like it had no point. The way they chose to portray Ted Bundy was very uninteresting to me. I don't agree with the controversy at all, I…

    The fucking tore down the Jaws ride at Universal Studios for THIS? I stood in line for THIS?

  • Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

    Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

    ★★½

    Probably the best film Noah Baumbach has ever written.

  • Bridget Jones's Diary

    Bridget Jones's Diary

    ★★½

    Not terrible by any means, it’s just not...good. I can certainly see WHY this has its fan base and audience, but I don’t think it’s remotely for me by any means. I probably won’t be checking out the sequels, but I guess we shall see.

  • The Kings of Summer

    The Kings of Summer

    ★★½

    You know, this was pretty disappointed for me. Not because I had any sort of high expectations going in, but because for the first forty minutes or so I ADORED this film. I really related to the main character and was super engaged in the story. This film has a miraculous ability to make something as simple as building a house seem like the entire world. For that first half I was ready and eager to give this film five…

  • Wonder Park

    Wonder Park

    ★★½

    My parents wanted to watch this for some reason, and I didn’t hate it? I’m just kind of confused. I watched most of this movie in bewilderment, because I can’t think of a single person, adult, teenager or child, that would legitimately love this movie. I don’t know who this film is made for. The shot composition is super strange. Most of the time it’s zoomed in really tight on the characters faces and swirling around like some Climax shit.…
