Central Park Five

Posted : 2 years, 3 months ago on 4 July 2015 04:13 (A review of The Central Park Five)

Aspires to be one at an Erroll Morris or Werner Herzog level of an investigative documentary... but alas falls short.

Snoop Lion > Snoop Dogg

Posted : 2 years, 3 months ago on 22 June 2015 05:17 (A review of Reincarnated)

Snoop Lion is born. This documentary is really good in the first half. Interesting set up, great history of reggae, Rasta, and Snoop; but then it loses its way and I became pretty anxious for an ending, that did, thankfully wrap up nicely.

Scream 4 No More

Posted : 2 years, 4 months ago on 16 June 2015 02:24 (A review of Scream 4)

It brought nothing innovative to the series (except the opening was great) or drama; but it was no doubt entertaining and I think it stuck to the vision of the series and is an improvement on Scream 3. Plus it's better than most slasher films in the last decade

Dead-Ender's Game

Posted : 2 years, 4 months ago on 16 June 2015 01:55 (A review of Ender's Game)



The young leads do a fine job in this VFX heavy attempt at an epic adaptation. However Harrison Ford phones it in and several parts seem rushed, as if it was going through the motions, but not as bad as with 'Hunger Games'.

I'm assuming there won't a be a sequel...

Paranormally Activity

Posted : 2 years, 4 months ago on 16 June 2015 01:29 (A review of Paranormal Activity 2)

I am surprised by how good this nanny camera horror film was compared to the first. I might actually be interested in checking out the third one...

I Want to Eat Cheese with Jeff Garland

Posted : 2 years, 4 months ago on 16 June 2015 01:18 (A review of I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With)

Garland is pretty funny in this relatively unique indie film about finding someone to love. Silverman is funny in a toned-down version of herself.

Salinger review

Posted : 2 years, 4 months ago on 8 June 2015 04:38 (A review of Salinger)



This documentary on the reclusive author makes it clear an hour would have been enough to cover this author. Perhaps if I were a huge fan of his I would have loved this, but it just got to be too much insight, making this not a documentary for the average fan.

Apparently this documentary took several years to make and they clearly worked very hard for the final result... so I've got respect for their perseverance.

Little Fodder for Comedy

Posted : 2 years, 4 months ago on 30 May 2015 01:14 (A review of Little Fockers )

What a drastic change from the first two movies. This reminded me of a lazy Adam Sandler movie. It seems like the only actor that actually wanted to be in this movie was Jessica Alba. But it was nice to see Owen Wilson playing a larger role, it's too bad his character was written to become a sillier unrealistic caricature.

Luckily it did still illicit some laughs and it's difficult not to continue to enjoy the relationship between the main two characters, but oh how I wish they actually tried to make a decent end to this trilogy.

Weakenomics

Posted : 2 years, 4 months ago on 23 May 2015 06:13 (A review of Freakonomics)

With all these great documentarians and a plethora of source material you would expect this documentary to be awesome... but it's barely above average.

The Biggest Deception of the Summer

Posted : 2 years, 4 months ago on 23 May 2015 02:42 (A review of Now You See Me)



An entertaining, albeit barely believable, first half gets almost forgotten as we are forced to believe Mark Ruffalo's acting and the finale's ridiculous twist.

Somehow this became a breakout hit, which I was happy with before I had a chance to see it, as it was up against obnoxious action blockbusters; but in the end it was more deceptive than any other film I had a chance to see in the summer of 2013, because it looked good...
