Taken 2

Taken 2

Thursday, November 1, 2012 No Comments

The premise of Taken 2 was laughably idiotic and clearly only served to squeeze a sequel from the franchise. Hooray for cash grabs! Basically, take the father of one of the baddies Neeson killed in the first Taken, and make him try to take revenge on his lost son (who was involved in some seriously […]

Looper

Looper – Part 2

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 No Comments

Acting wise, I was very impressed by Looper. The characters were rich, and the kid who played Emily Blunt’s nephew/son was simply phenomenal. JGL was, as always, excellent, but I got the feeling, at times, that he was trying too hard to portray Bruce Willis. It could be the writing/directing that’s to blame, but still, […]

Safe House

Safe House

Friday, June 22, 2012 No Comments

Safe House brings absolutely nothing new to the table. It’s just like every other thriller, CIA movie, with the same action, the same dumb, unexpected twist, the same everything (pretty much). And just like most other movies of the same nature, it isn’t horrible, but it does nothing to raise itself above the rest of […]

Colombiana

Colombiana

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 Double

The Double

Tuesday, January 17, 2012 No Comments

Revealing the antagonist early on in a thriller is an interestingly dangerous choice. Especially, as was done in The Double, if the antagonist also happens to be the protagonist. And after watching said movie, I have to say; I wasn’t convinced by the reveal at all, as it was insubstantially verified and highly unbelievable. But, […]

Bad Teacher

Bad Teacher

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 No Comments

Bad Teacher was far funnier than I expected it to be. The oddball characters portrayed definitely had comedic allure. And the actors playing these wacky roles were entertaining to watch. Even Cameron Diaz (and her character) had some enjoyable qualities. However, this movie was unreservedly stupid. There were plot holes scattered throughout the story, it […]

Our idiot brother

Our Idiot Brother

Friday, September 2, 2011 No Comments

What I liked most about Our Stupid Brother, aside from its charm and comedy, was how undemanding and uncomplicated it was. Many movies these days (Cowboys & Aliens for example) make the story overly complex for no reason. They oblige you to be attentive for plotlines that are usually just dumb. This movie, conversely, was […]

The Box

The Box

Monday, July 19, 2010 No Comments

If someone told you that at a push of a button you would get a million dollars, but someone who you didn’t know would die, would you push the button? Well, that was the question posed at the beginning of the long, slow paced “thriller” called The Box. This interesting premise was taken from an […]

hot tub time machine

Hot Tub Time Machine

Friday, July 2, 2010 No Comments

Humor is all Hot Tub Time Machine had going for it. This movie about four people who, after a night of mad drinking, end up back in the mid-eighties to relive some of their past experiences would’ve been really bad if it wasn’t hilarious. The acting was mostly dumb and the story was idiotic, but […]

Mystery Team

Mystery Team

Wednesday, June 16, 2010 No Comments

Dumb, silly, ridiculous, over the top and gross. These all pretty much sum up Mystery Team, a story about a dimwitted group of young adults who are trying to solve a murder mystery. It was quite funny in the sense that it was absolutely stupid, which is exactly what I wanted. However, I found that […]
