About my collections

I stopped buying so many DVDs once I realized how many damn movies there were out there and now I'm just trying to see as many movies as I can. Same with CDs. I mainly just do iTunes DLs

Not Enough Edge

Posted : 1 month, 2 weeks ago on 9 August 2016 03:21 (A review of Over the Hedge)

One of the first examples of: Just because they use computer graphics and celebrity voices doesn't mean it's good.

They used a lot of family tropes and cliches. The story had potential but never broke out of its mundane existence.

Is it fun? Yes. Is it for the kids and will they enjoy it? Yes

DiCaprio Tries to Take it to 11

Posted : 5 months ago on 26 April 2016 05:31 (A review of The 11th Hour)

Much better than "An Inconvenient Truth" in the fact that it doesn't insult your intelligence and it inspires the audience to do better for Earth, not just piss us off.

Love in the Time of Crime

Posted : 5 months, 1 week ago on 23 April 2016 02:10 (A review of Love Crime)



Don't fuck with Christine.
This French thriller was entertaining; and the head-to-head battle for love seemed relentless. A much better version than De Palma's 'Passion'.

A Thawed Effort

Posted : 5 months, 1 week ago on 18 April 2016 05:56 (A review of Frozen)



I completely get the appeal to young kids, girls and boys, but few elements translate to decent entertainment for adults. It was rather disappointing, after hearing all the hype.

Turns out the only thing that deserves the hype is the music, and even the music wasn't that great, besides 'Let it Go'. And all those various renditions storming youtube are often times more well done, even with the amazing vocal talents of Idina Menzel.

Thankfully the animation is still pretty to look at, even if we have to believe a snowman stationed near a fireplace for several minutes wouldn't melt.

A Fantastically Odd Film of Something

Posted : 5 months, 1 week ago on 17 April 2016 08:11 (A review of A Fantastic Fear of Everything)



A fantastically odd piece of absurd circumstance. Beautifully filmed and staged, this one may lag in the second act but comes back strong.

A Fantasm en Rouge

Posted : 5 months, 3 weeks ago on 6 April 2016 05:17 (A review of Red Obsession)



An extensive look into the Chinese wine market and their new obsession with Bordeaux, narrated by... the Aussie, Russell Crowe?

I enjoyed the arc of this story and the cinematography even if they seemed to run out of aerial shots because they were often repeated.

Dawn of Director Joe

Posted : 6 months, 1 week ago on 23 March 2016 09:49 (A review of Don Jon)




I have an issue with writers and directors starring in their own movie where they have sex with a bounty of beautiful women, including Scarlett Johansson. It's very egoist and obnoxious enough to take me out of the story.

Luckily for Levitt, Tony Danza, Glenne Headly, Brie Larson, and Rob Brown proved to be a fun supporting cast. Notice I didn't mention the repulsive Julianne Moore. She was the worst part of this film.

Teddy 2 Tones

Posted : 8 months ago on 31 January 2016 04:56 (A review of Ted 2)


    6.9/10
This sequel certainly didn't have the same effect on the general public the first one did; but I didn't find it worse in any way. Perhaps people wanted something new in the second, or perhaps they just didn't want a second...

Either way, it's it has plenty of funny scenes that take make up a decent enough comedy with a funny cameo that could have been so much funnier. Can't spoil it for you.

Needing More Heart in this Sea

Posted : 8 months ago on 31 January 2016 04:55 (A review of In the Heart of the Sea)



Fiction inspired by fiction inspired by non-fiction. While the film is certainly gorgeous in its production design and full of genuine action scenes involving a huge whale it also doesn't boast any strong themes or create any true emotion. It's basically a soft retelling of a hard story.

There also didn't seem to be a climax, which is kind of crucial to a story. And how did Chase come back from being starved and burnt to looking like he did at the beginning after being rescued for a few days?

Still, it's difficult to call this a failure, as Ron Howard has put together an impressive production and this is a good seafaring adventure

More Life Needed

Posted : 8 months ago on 29 January 2016 03:21 (A review of Life)



A method film about being method, a film about a photographer for Life, a film about life.

It's difficult to like this film. I am a huge fan of Corbijn's work; yet I must face the fact that this is his least successful picture.

Pattinson is awkward, uninteresting and at no point do I care about his struggles. DeHaan emulates Dean very well but this is also a character that doesn't create much emotional interest.

Some of the highlights are the story itself, the production design and the cinematography.
