I do enjoy them though.
"Furious 6", 3/5 - It was good fun. When Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel went up for that tag-team fight, fucking shivers, it was boss.
"Saw VI", 1/5 - ...
"Inception", 4/5 - Well I'm convinced that Cobb was NOT dreaming in the final sequence.
Gadammit, I still haven't gone D: all this positive reviews on RT and people boasting it's so freaking good is killing me D:
The Prestige: 10/10
Pure genius. Easily Nolan's best. I liked it much more than TDK or Inception, and I love both those films!
MAN OF STEEL: 7/10
It was a bit dragging at first nonetheless, Henry Cavill fits the Superman role well.
Hot Fuzz (2007) - Pretty good, funny too. 8/10
Mama - 5/10. The movie was great until the last 15 minutes. Sooooo bad bad bad bad. Didn't even feel like the same movie.
"V/H/S", 2/5 - Interesting. Nice filmic techniques: shaky ass camera and tits, tits everywhere.
"V/H/S/2", 2/5 - Much better choice of filmic techniques, although it was much the same as the first.
The Garden of Words.
Man Of Steel: 9/10 a little less action and more character development would have made this movie perfect. I really want to see what they are planning for the sequel
World War Z - 4.5 out of 5
Marc Forster makes zombies scary again and not just the walking dead, but the totally aware, totally terrifying, totally running undead. Brad Pitt is absolutely incredible to watch onscreen as the guy really knows how to make you compassionate to his character. Also, I really enjoyed the take on the zombie plague and the "cure" - vastly different from any other zombie film, and definitely not as ludicrous as the Warm Bodies love cure. The film only falls short of having to tell the story with the highly repetitive formula of zombie attack, discovery, zombie attack, discovery, zombie attack, discovery, etc.
The Purge - 0.5 out of 5
Just total, absolute shit. What the fuck is wrong with this entire family? Let's just harbor a target from a group of well-armed purgers, then not listen to our dad when he is ready to give him up to SAVE HIS FUCKING FAMILY. Most anticlimactic ending I have ever seen in any film, and they don't even...I'll save it for my full review AKA rant. Just shit. I can't believe how angry this film made me.
Monsters University - 5/5. Yup. Pixar is back.
Evengelion 3.33 - 2/5
I know how you feel. There's a few movies I'm still pissed off about years after I've seen them.
I loved the first 3. The others were meh. The SAW 3D one was alright, though. It was a bit more entertaining imo.
WMDYRW: Man Of Steel. 9/10. Fuck yeah. Best Superhero Movie in a while. Only beaten by Watchmen and TDK.
World War Z: 7/10
Good. But not that good.
World War Z - 7.5/10
More impressive than I thought it would be
Not gory, but man, it was intense.
Side Effects - 3.5 out of 5
I definitely felt the Contagion-esque vibe up until the point it went from a suspense drama to a conspiracy thriller. Zeta-Jones and Tatum are completely overwhelmed by Law and Mara, especially with the latter being both incredibly seductive and jaw-dropping insane all at once.
After Earth. 6.5/10.
Much better than I was told it would be. I actually thought it was alright. Good, but not great.
It enjoyed it.
Spring Breakers - 1 out of 5
Sloppy, poorly sequenced, and far from innovative, Harmony Kormine loses all control and traction during the last ten minutes when Benson and Hudgens suddenly have Kryptonian strength. Gomez is beyond awkward, and Korine serves absolutely zero purpose except to show that she and director-writer Korine are totally fine with the whole world knowing what her tits and ass look like. A 90-minute trailer for the movie is what the entire thing feels like, only really having anything worth seeing when you realize all four girls actually ended up where they were supposed to be in life, despite Benson's cliche and meaningless line near the end.
"World War Z" - Not bad. Cool zombie movie, good actors. Intense. Uhm. Good camera work. Eh. Worth watching at home. 3/5
