Ready or Not (2019)

Wow, I think this might actually be the biggest disappointment of the year for me. I was really looking forward to this but this just didn't do it for me. The story was great and some of the humor was funny but a lot of the humor was just stupid too. I wasn't a fan of any of the performances except ...

Commando (2013)

The movie, direction, acting, and the story was pretty poor. Also, the worst parts were the musical numbers and the lead actress. I normally actually enjoy the over the top musical numbers in Bollywood films but these were really lame, slow-motion scenes of people walking or laying around, no thank ...

One Night in Bangkok

Another disappointing movie from director Wych Kaosayananda. I don't know what it is but I keep watching this director's films, well I do know it's because I want to support the actors I enjoy but still these movies are one step up from shit. Mark Dacascos gets to do some acting and he isn't bad but...

Legacy of Lies

I don't know what it is but I couldn't stand either the character or the performance from the actress who played "Lees". Scott is the best actor in the film and I'm not just talking about during the decent action scenes either. Most of the acting is serviceable but no one really brings it. I liked t...

This Is Our Home

Wow I can kind of see that I'm in the minority here but to me at least the movie sucked. The music, directing, and editing were pretty bad had me always thinking "why did they think that was a good idea". The acting was okay I guess but it was hard to tell since none of the characters acted like rea...

Cyrano de Bergerac (1990)

First let me talk about some of the positives I have with this film. Gérard Depardieu was great and really fit the part, the costumes and designs, as well as the sets were amazing. The direct and pacing were okay too. I guess that's about it form my positives. There aren't too many negatives more th...

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...
