Big Brother

I really really really loved this movie. Donnie does some of the best acting of his career here and you can tell he had a blast making the film. At times it does feel like this is a condensed version of a TV Series but even so I was invested. There are two fight scenes in the film the first one fits...

Women's Flesh: My Red Guts

This was a surprisingly hard watch. I've seen plenty of gore films, torture films, and self abuse films and this one is no better than most. However I found this one surprisingly disturbing. The mutilations scenes were well done and the switches in video quality helped hide the low budget and the fl...

New Initial D the Movie: Legend 3 - Dream

This movie finishes off at around the same place as the second season of the anime. The big difference here is that it felt like too much was missing from the original story and the final race lacked any real tension or excitement. Overall the "New Initial D" trilogy is worth watching for ...

Aladdin (2019)

It was an okay remake. It didn't have any charm or heart but it also wasn't an abomination. Will Smith did fine and didn't try to copy Robin Williams, but his singing was surprisingly weak and his CGI genie felt a bit off in the looks department. The other two leads were okay I guess. Naomi Scott is...

A Time to Love

This was an irritating movie to say the least. The two families had a falling out that is never really spoken about and nearly all the dialogue is annoyingly vapid. When the story of what happen to the male lead father is revealed it still doesn't make sense in the way it was presented. If it happen...

Black Christmas (2019)

Man this was a big disappointment. I went into this with my wife on my birthday hoping for a fun horror flick but that did not happen. First off the film is never scary and never even seems to try. While the acting is decent and the lead is actually quite good the dialogue is terrible. The lack of g...

Kunoichi

The distracting camera work and editing were done to make the scenes feel more intense but really it just made everything feel cheap and lazy. The fights and choreography were poorly handled and filmed which is a shame because Rina Takeda is really impressive when given the chance to shine. There's ...

Rambo: Last Blood

This is really a tough movie to rate. On one hand its a pretty solid no nonsense throwback action film and on the other it has some serious pacing issues, plot holes, over use of close-ups, some questionable acting and worst of all it never feels like a proper Rambo film. And maybe that's the bigges...

The Brave Archer 3

I'm not really that big on this series which is a shame since I really enjoy the source material. The fight scenes are amazing and wonderful to watch too bad its saved until the last 10-15 minutes of the movie. The pacing feels off, the direction is too but it mostly feels that way because Chang Che...

Re: Who are the ten directors you have seen the most films by?

I'm only including directors of feature length films.
