    Justice League: Doom - 5 out of 5

    This is the Justice League that needs a live-action iteration; however, the same can't be said for the Legion of Doom. The Legion in the cartoons was a group of baddies that all wanted to take down the League, but while the Legion in this film is perfect to take on the League one-by-one, they fail as a threat and at teamwork in their ensemble. Savage himself doesn't give any reason to fear him as he is only an immortal Lex Luthor. The animation style is grittier, and feels much more mature than other DC Animated Universe films, and the depth of the story follows suit. What makes a story like this great is Batman reminding the audience that even superheroes have weaknesses.

    Što je muškarac bez brkova? (eng. What's a Man Without a Moustache?) - 9/10 - Rewatched it for the millitonth time, always great. So many jokes inside of jokes. :lol: Plus, filmed like 60km away from me and really shows what people from this area are like.

    "The Incredibles", 4/5 - Nostalgia. Awesome movie. Hoping to see a sequel come around soon. Nothing is beneath the Underminer.

    Monsters University - 9/10 - Not the most original idea or story, but it still has the joy it comes with a Pixar movie.

    Spring Breakers (2013) - 2/5 - 1 part artsy, 3 parts trashy. Franco was amazing!

    this is the end: 8/10 Not the most ingenious comedy but I laughed my ass off and that's all that counts.

    Hunger games: 9/10 simply amazing

    Orgazmo: 11/10 best movie about a Mormon pornstar superhero ever.

    Am I the only one who didn't have a serious problem with this movie? I'd honestly give it a 7/10 solely because of missing plot threads. Okay, I know the heavy plot errors are a big deal, but I still liked the movie.

    Ooh, no.


    Contagion - 3/5. Pretty good, pretty scary in its own way. Cool to see an all star cast and Matt Damon does a fantastic job of keeping the film grounded. Didn't terribly enjoy the pacing though and it comes across as more of a documentary in a sense than a emotional film.

    Man of Steel (2013) - 2.5/5

    I liked it BUT...

    There were way too many unnecessary flashbacks. They could've easily used that time to flesh out the story a bit more. Most of the action sequences were barely comprehensible.

    But every scene Michael Shannon was in was a treat to watch!

    "Monsters University" - fun kid's movie. I've always enjoyed Pixar films and this was just as good. Very cool story. 4/5

    Contagion disappointed me. I expected a lot more and the ending left me unfulfilled.

    American Reunion - 5/10

    It was funny in some parts, but it definitely didn't have the same charm that the first two American Pie movies had and most of it was pretty bland. Seann William Scott almost seemed like he was trying way too hard to channel Stifler's douche-like persona, and it just comes off as somewhat unnecessary. Overall, it wasn't a very good movie and I don't see me wanting to watch it again anytime in the near future.

    "White House Down" - Way too similar in structure, story and everything as Olympus Has Fallen, a movie that came out just a few months ago. Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum did an incredible job and the action was the usual "one person takes down a whole army" action/shooter. Overall an intense movie with great story telling (although a story already told). 3.5/5

    Europa Report - 5/10. Just a waste of time basically if you've seen any sci-fi before. Had huge potential but just did nothing worthwhile the entire movie with a great cast and premise.
