Zero Dark Thirty

Wednesday, February 13, 2013 No Comments

Kathryn Bigelow truly deserves loads of credit for Zero Dark Thirty. She really knows how to send people on an emotional rollercoaster. Even though most people already know the basic details behind the hunt for Bin Laden, the film manages to evoke a sense of intrigue, with its mix of, uh… “information extraction” and inserts […]

This Means War

This Means War

Tuesday, February 21, 2012 No Comments

There’s nothing you should be expecting from This Means War. The story was your garden-variety action/comedy/romance, with primitive themes and logical nonsense aplenty. But, for some reason, I was able to look beneath that crummy outer layer, which was a thick one mind you, and just enjoy the humorous chemistry between the characters, and the […]

I don’t have much to say about Colombiana. It’s bad. That’s really all there is to it. The story, what there was of one, was boring and cliché, the dialogue was just dumb, and the action was bland. They tried to make Zoë Saldana the female Jason Statham, but if I want to see a Statham-esque […]

The Change-Up

With films like The Change-Up, where there’s nothing new under the sun with regards to the story, all you can do is try to enjoy the bits in between the plot and hope that there is at least a semblance of goodness to keep your mind off the fact that it is downright cliché. Well, […]

Water for Elephants

Water for Elephants

Tuesday, November 8, 2011 No Comments

The first chunk of Water for Elephants was riddled with convenient weaves that brought its believability into question, and there was also a sizable amount of clichés, but as the movie progressed these problems fell to the wayside as the story, though still quite standard, sucked me into the events. And this is thanks to […]

Arthur

Arthur

Russell Brand has a great comedic presence. His pithy satire and wackiness makes for some great chuckles. However, I think he fits better as an ancillary character, because after a half an hour of watching Arthur I grew a little sick of his personality. Not to say he was bad, just a bit overdone. Moreover, […]

Sanctum

Sanctum

Review After watching Sanctum, I was eager to watch the features, to go online and read about the story, not because the movie was good, but for the exact opposite reason. This movie was so standard and cliché that I didn’t believe for a moment that what transpired in the film actually occurred. Well, after […]

It’s really disappointing how much money gets poured into making action flicks with an immense amount of special effects that are really not good. You’d think that the more money put in, the greater the results, but no! Thor, a supremely standard and cliché Marvel movie had some decent visuals, action sequences and the acting, […]

You Again

Review I’ll admit that You Again, the story of two sets of high school rivals reuniting, had some funny moments, but those moments were overshadowed by the awkward dumbness that was the vast majority of this cliché stupidity. I mean, Kristen Bell was gorgeously adorable and was actually quite funny, Odette Yustman was very hot, […]

It’s Kind of a Funny Story

Wednesday, October 13, 2010 No Comments

I’m not sure how It’s Kind of a Funny Story got lost beneath the hype of The Social Network and other recent releases, but it’s a crying shame. This story, about a clinically depressed teenager who accidentally commits himself into a psychiatric ward for five days and the life lessons he learns while there, is […]
