    Truth or Dare

    ★★

    This film seemed like someone watched It Follows and decided they wanted to make a movie like that.  Unfortunately the filmmakers forgot to include interesting characters/plot, good performances, and the great score that made that film amazing.  Don’t bother and just watch It Follows again.

    ★★★

    Despite being a HUGE animated film fanboy I had never seen this film.  Honestly I’ve never been a big Brad Bird fan.  That being said, after years of hearing how great this film was, I finally gave it a shot.  Take what I’m about to say with a grain of salt because it could easily be a case of too high expectations, but I didn’t see what captured the imagination of a generation of fans.  I have a good friend…

    A story that would have made for a weak 45-minute episode gets stretched out to a 2-hour movie. Full review coming soon at thenerdspodcast.com

    The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

    ★★½

    I’m a huge fantasy film fanboy, so I’m constantly looking for “new” fantasy franchises.  However this film never looked good to me...it looked like a “kid’s Lord of the Rings.”  Unfortunately my first instinct was the right one.  It took me three tries before I finally watched this film from start-to-finish because I kept falling asleep.  This film never caught/kept my attention.  If you’ve seen a fantasy film in your life you know what’s gonna happen in this film...it’s that predictable.
