Free Fire 5.5/10 it couldn't decide if it wanted to be a comedy(Shoot Em'Up) or taken seriously(Reservior Dogs).

I kiiinda want to see that, if not for Cillian Murphy alone. Does the whole movie take place in that one shoot-out, like in the trailer?

Yes the whole film/shoot out takes place in the one location.It's not that it's a bad film.It just couldn't decide if it wanted to go full bore serious which is how it should have IMO.But the ridiculousness of the film was just too comedy.It's a short film,Cillian Murphy was good in it and every actor gets equal time.Armie Hammer had a good part and being the weakest actor in the film he was even OK.I wanted to see how Brie Larson's character fit in being the only female in the film.She was kind of a waste IMO but then again She's the Twist

Suicide Squad. 5/10. Deadshot was great. Harley Quinn was good. Joker, Croc and Flag were fair. The rest were forgettable. Best part of the movie was the first 20ish minutes with the flashbacks. The actual plot of the thing wasn't great. Why use a weird witch as the man villain when the Joker is already in the movie? He seems like the more logical choice.

War Dogs. 7/10. Cross between Lord of War and Wolf of Wall Street. Had it's moments, but not as good as either of those.

Hercules. 6/10. Wasn't the movie I expected ... but entertaining. I'd've rather seen the labors of Hercules than this sequel to them.

The Promise 6.5/10 missed the mark on this story of the deliberate Genocide of over a million Armenian people buy the Turks.The Atrocities placed on the Armenian people by the Turks takes a back seat to a not so interesting love triangle.The cinematography was very good.This could have been an epic award winning film with some award winning acting.My 6.5 is only for some very good acting,especially Oscar Isaac's.. his best to date IMO.

Jodorowski's Dune: brilliant

What could have been. And what a world we would have if everyone lived as he does.

I didn't realize that without this effort, there would have been no Alien (O'Bannon, Giger, and Foss were all put together here), and everything that spawned. I'm not sure if there would have been Star Wars, given that Lucas was clearly inspired by their efforts.

La La Land - 93/100

Not a musical kind of guy, unless it is a Disney film, but this film was excellent. The soundtrack plays off itself, and I found myself thinking it was a bit catchy. I love Stone to death, but not the greatest acting, truthfully not sure how she won best actress. She did a better job in Birdman. I found myself sympathizing for Gosling, which is weird to say. If you liked the intensity of a musician Miles Teller played in Whiplash, you'll get that passion from Gosling in this. I didn't want to see this and spend the money blindly, but I'm glad I did. It is basically a live action Disney film.

Easily one of my favourite TV comedies. Extremely underappreciated show.

I imagine most people outside of Canada haven't even heard of this one but it's definitely worth a watch. The show doesn't really find it's identity until season 4 though imo. First 3 seasons aren't bad but don't really stand out either, the latter 3 are phenomenal though.

Eh, it was fine. Not bad but not great either. I thought the musical aspect was a bit uneven. It started out with a bang, intrusively and unnaturally so, then settled to more subtle musical numbers that were well integrated naturally into the story. Had some plot points that were bothersome.

I did appreciate the art direction and direction of the movie though. Very nice visual homage to old musicals.

I appreciate the Nolan Bat films for more of what they did for Batman rather than what they are. Batman Begins brought Batman out of the depressive film slump, and TDK made it clear to the average movie goer that Batman stories could be taken seriously, despite long time fans already knowing that. While I don't hold the films in as such high regards as most people, I can certainly appreciate that they made Batman credible and popular again.

That being said, TDKR had to undo everything that made the preceding films great. Brrr...

After watching Begins and Rises, I don't think Begins is great, but it's very good, especially considering it was made after Batman and Robin, but I think Rises is overall a superior film with better villains and action sequences, even if it's not as good as TDK.

I have no idea what kind of role Ledger would've had in Rises, but considering Scarecrow had a small role in the sequels, it's possible that Joker would've had a small role. I do like that Rises brings back a new version of the League of Shadows, bringing things full circle. Still, a Joker cameo would've been nice.

It always bugged me that the end Police force... of the entire city, gets trapped underground which somehow is an alternate dimension where facial hair doesn't grow.

That's a misconception, it wasn't the entire police, and they even mention it, that "cops were being hunted like dogs", so most were actually hiding.

The facial hair is true :lol Unless, they got razor blades as part of the supplies they were getting from the people above, but that's unlikely :lol

There are a lot of details that some people missed, so they became "issues" that some people like to use against the film. It's like the "how Batman got back in to Gotham? They skipped it so it's a mistake!! It was impossible to get in to Gotham!!" :lol No, it wasn't actually, supplied trucks were getting into the city deliver food among other items. It was the citizens who couldn't leave, but people from the outside still got in, like the CIA guys disguised as food distributors.

Having said that, the film does have some flaws, but so does Begins and TDK. A lot of people like to ignore those flaws though.

I've never played the game but I thought the movie was terrible on all levels. The cast, story, visuals. Probably the worst fantasy film I've ever seen next to that one Dungeons & Dragons movie starring Marlon Wayans.

It had zero charm so it didn't even have the cheesy fun of flicks like Beastmaster, Masters of the Universe or Red Sonja. 3/10 was probably a little high now that I think about it.

Don't you though? She and Redmayne really accomplished world class performances in their respective roles. I had forgotten that she didn't earn a Best Supporting Actress nomination but rather Best *Actress* period. And she totally deserved it. Charlie Cox was great too. It's always fun to see genre favorites holding their own and more in films like this. The cinematography, score, and script were all absolutely first rate. 2014 might have been the best year for dramas in one or two decades. Birdman, Boyhood, The Imitation Game, and The Theory of Everything. Pretty astounding.

You and I seem to love a lot of the same movies so I don't want to bash Kubo. I was *so* into it for so long, the visuals were really quite breathtaking and the twin sisters were borderline horror movie scary. The ending just fell flat for me which was a big bummer. It didn't seem to resonate with my kids either but we didn't discuss it too much afterward so maybe I'm wrong on that one.

GOTG Vol II.. 4/10 about half as good as Vol 1 especially the CGI.IMO

Trying too hard this time to be humorous,especially Drax character.The spontaneity was gone and the banter felt slightly forced.

The CGI was pretty bad so I did some checking and they used WETA who was not used in Vol 1.But I can't say they were the cause because some of the other effects were done by the same Co's in Vol 1.I was really surprised they let so much of this slide being nowhere near as clean and clear as Vol 1's effects.

All I can say is on first viewing I enjoyed Gotg 2 much more than the Gotg but, I haven't watched either more than once. So second viewing may fair differently.

Regarding the change from 1 to 2, the characters that maintained a slight edge after the first one lost it here. And you can only assume they'll get softer as the franchise goes on. The analogy Starlord makes to Cheers was fairly appropriate :lol I didn't think Baby Groot was all that great. Kurt Russell was a bright spot, though he was just being himself. Was cool that we finally got to see the Watchers.

Well then by all means gush away. I'm curious as to what resonated with you. I was pretty captivated throughout and then felt let down by what I thought was an anti-climactic finale with a weak final message ("memories are the most powerful magic of all.") And I don't mind slow movies either. We recently watched and enjoyed "The Secret of the Kells" which is MUCH slower than Kubo.

But apparently my kids did love Kubo. I asked them to rank it among all the other animated films of the past year (Zootopia, Finding Dory, The Secret Life of Pets, Trolls, Moana, and Lego Batman) and my daughter had Moana and Kubo tied for first and my son ranked it third behind Lego Batman and Moana.

While I enjoyed the movie, it falls pretty short of the first one, for me at least. The jokes misfired as often as they hit, Baby Groot was underwhelming. The biggest mistake was to separate the group, as their chemistry is a big reason the first one was so good. The last 30 minutes was much better than what came before, and the use of "the chain" by Fleetwood Mac fit perfectly in the film.

I may have just had my expectations too high, as the first set a very high bar, but I'll see when it comes on video.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

I consider the film series a guilty pleasure, they're by no means to be upheld by any standards of any kind. This supposedly final chapter however, borderlines on the worst that filmmaking has to offer. Nothing on screen could be comprehended as the camera wildly shifts into jump cuts every few seconds. Instead of establishing mood and atmosphere, the film is more concerned of portraying even the most basic of two way conversations into a psychedelic episode. This film- and everyone involved in it, should be condemned. With no redeeming qualities whatsoever, this is the cream of the crop of human and animal excrement, mutating into a city-stomping organism so vile that it should be wiped off the face of the earth. A top contender for the worst film I've ever seen.

Tickets for Willy Wonka were overpriced because it was part of an event thing. The theater I went to has cheaper tickets early in the morning (didn't apply to Wonka), so I saw Resurgence instead.

No, I don't think you get it. The previous films were crap, but at least they were watchable. This one almost made me quit halfway since it's so poorly edited, that even first graders with a camera and create better concise shots than this "film".

The film has so many jump cuts, where the camera changes literally every 2-3 seconds that you can't possibly fathom what the heck is happening, and this happens throughout the ENTIRE movie! Even when two characters are talking, the camera cut to another shot, and another, and another. I though people were exaggerating about the jump cuts, but they weren't kidding.

This is an actual clip from the movie, count how many times the camera changes. Now imagine that throughout the entire movie.

Excellent movie. It takes what was established in the first movie and delves deeper. We still have the sci-fi action, the wonderful creature/set/environment designs, comedy, soundtrack, and character moments that made the first film so entertaining, but adds in a very potent element of emotion and heart.

We gain a greater understanding of what makes this ragtag group gel together, what their individual fears are, what makes them tick. Characters like Rocket have their tough exterior stripped to reveal their scared and insecure core.

If you liked "Guardians of the Galaxy", then "Vol. 2" is a superb continuation of not only the overall story, but the individual journeys of Peter, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, Groot, Yondu and Nebula.

Can't wait to watch again.

Rogue One on blu - 8/10

Saw it opening weekend after a long day and dozed off several times. Saw it again a week later and thought it was ok. But I was thoroughly glue to the tv at home while watching it. Really caught the nuances of the characters and gained an appreciation for them, even Bodhi, whose character I hated the first couple viewings.

I don't remember what I rated it at, but what I liked most about ST is that that the season was short at to the point, no filler. The Marvel shows should take note of that. It did feel very King'ish with a awesome buildup but average ending. I also like that it was clearly the early 80's but didn't beat you over the head with ITS THE 80S!!!

Americans is pretty damn good at feeling authentic. Another one for the early 80s was Freaks and Geeks. But the vast majority are sticking things in left and right to remind you of when they are taking place, and as a result they feel inauthentic.

I never bother with any of that crap. I saw the film, I thought it was so full of itself by masquerading a deep artistic film and it was anything but. Not to mention, the run time was laughable with many flat spots. I went into wanting to like it, I truly did. But half way through it felt like getting root canal.

If anything, the whole parade around this film comes off as mass hysteria. I just don't know how anyone saw this film any differently. It wasn't awful, but masterpiece? No.
