    A classic. I can't think of many other martial arts films that blow me away every time I watch them like Drunken Master. Definitely my favorite Jackie Chan movie.



    Grave Encounters/Grave Encounters 2

    I actually like the premise of these movies. The idea of a team of cheesy TV ghost hunters encountering real paranormal whatthefuckery has some potential, and it's one of the few modern instances I can think of in which the found-footage shtick kind of makes sense. The execution is just all kinds of awful. The first one starts off promising enough, but then loses the fucking plot about 45 minutes in. The second one (which I still don't even understand why I watched after subjecting myself to the prequel) starts off as a turd, but somehow transforms into a Niagara Falls-esque torrent of violent diarrhea spewing right into your eyes. It's like you finally beat this total cock of a last boss, but then, for no reason other than fuck you, he turns into this laser-guided, 71-dicked cyclone of rubber aimed right for your un-lubed shitter. Even the most hardened sadist has to question what the fuck he is doing with his life after watching Grave Encounters 2.

    Gone Girl - 6.5/10

    Decent film! Really enjoyed the first half but I didn't really like the ending, tbh.

    Gone Girl 8/10

    Great movie, i normally dont look this kind of movies.
    From the begining about some really strange things it was just a thing that hit me.

    After the movie i got a kind of a "WTF", "what did i see?" feeling :lol:

    Guardians of the Galaxy 8/10: So I find myself in a similar boat as the one I was in for Gravity. I'm just not buying the hype. Though I'm not going to sit here trash this movie like I did Gravity because I really did enjoy the movie a lot. I just didn't find it to be the end all, be all for Marvel movies. Funny, fun action, good story. My only problem is that I didn't get super attached to the characters. Maybe the second movie will do better in that department.

    Gone Girl 9/10: Jesus fucking Christ, this movie is twisted and not even in a traditional sense. David Fincher just has a way of making fucked up shit funny.

    Spoilers below:

    The whole ending with dezy and her coming covered in his blood was just fucking ridiculous which I'm not sure is a compliment or not. I guess I had fun watching it, so compliment?

    Also Trent and Atticus fucking strike again. Jesus, are these two good.

    One reason why I hate cinemas here: Gone Girl almost has no cinemas left in its second week. The only cinema here that screens it is a really old theater that I rarely go to.

    Housebound - 6/10

    Reminded me a little of Tucker and Dale VS. Evil but not as good. It was entertaining enough, but I wish I would have spent the time on something else. Not worth watching really. The lead actress caught my attention, though.

    Mall by Joseph Hahn- Okay movie :shrug: . The soundtrack sounds great with the movie but at some parts its almost like he's trying to make the soundtrack gel with the movie. For eg, atleast twice in the movie, the pretentious kid(Jeff? He looks kinda cute) is walking slowly for minutes on a stretch while Shinoda is singing in the back. Although, Terrified/White Noise sounds great in the movie. I just think that's excessive. And the dialogue in the movie is very cringe-worthy. It was kinda unnatural. I don't think the acting was that bad. The actors who played Mal, Danny and Jeff(?) were fine but the rest weren't that great. Although, I do like visual aspect of the movie. I think Hahn is good at that. The movie felt like it was trying to be dark and crazy at times but I guess that's subjective.

    Step Up: All In - 1 out of 5

    The thinnest entry in the franchise isn't nearly as flashy and loses its moral sendoff in the final minutes, unlike its predecessors. However, at least they brought back Briana Evigan - great call.

    Fury. Surprisingly good. Never really thought of the logistics of tank-fighting, but this movie shed a lot of light into how hard it would have been during World War II.

    Annabelle - 1 out of 5

    Although there are a handful of good jump scares, when the big reveal comes along, it's a borefest.

    Wait, you knew about Briana Evigan but you didn't know she was in the "Numb" video?
