  • Daybreakers


    this movie sucks, but it deserves credit for making Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe, two legitimately skilled and respectable actors, just be fucking weird

  • Velvet Buzzsaw

    Velvet Buzzsaw

    this movie put way more money into costume design than special effects, which just feels weird. also pretty sure toni collete is trapped there against her will

  • The Bling Ring

    The Bling Ring

    I think I should just be frank and say that I dislike this film and have disliked it for a long time. I’m a fan of Sofia Coppola's other work, but I think this is definitely her worst movie, as well as Emma Watson’s worst movie. This is not exactly a thoughtful critique, but hearing Watson says “I want to rob” in that half baked imitation of a valley girl voice really sets my teeth on edge. The early 2000s…

  • Polar


    I agree with everyone who hates this movie, I was just very entertained by the extreme gore. I like some good old fashioned gore.

  • Alien: Covenant

    Alien: Covenant

    Shit film, but watching Michael Fassbender seduce himself by playing the recorder was worth it

  • Mary Shelley

    Mary Shelley

    The Shelley story could have been a great biopic with a better cast and a generally less pulpy approach. Turned the life of the Gothest woman who ever lived into stupid teen drama

  • Wonder Woman

    Wonder Woman

    I genuinely don't get why people like it so much. Boring and predictable

  • The Lovely Bones

    The Lovely Bones

    One of those frustrating movies that have a ton of good elements but it truly doesn't equal the sum of its parts. Probably Peter Jackson's worst movie.

  • Madame Bovary

    Madame Bovary

    It was the perfect recipe for a movie I'd like- period piece with a shining young cast- but the script is so painfully boring that the film pretty much committed suicide.

  • The Autopsy of Jane Doe

    The Autopsy of Jane Doe

    Fun horror to watch, but extremely forgettable

  • Split


    Mcavoy's performance is wonderful, but is the only thread holding this film together. Every other element is Shamalyan bullcrap.

  • La La Land

    La La Land

    No one can sing. How do people like a musical where no one can sing?
