2014 Movie REVIEWS

"NOW I SEE THE BEST!" 

 

Movie Review... "Exodus"....

The raping of a Bible story is never a pretty sight. I have not seen a violation this bad since Noah. Lloyd Bentsen told Dan Quayle in a debate once, "You are no John Kennedy." I give this movie a three out of ten, "You are no "Ten Commandments"....

 

Movie Review "Foxcatcher"...

A true unhappy story about how crazy wealthy people do weird things. The story was well told and kept me guessing what was going to happen next. I give it a eight out of ten for the shocking ending.

 

Movie Review "The Woman in Black 2"....

I like a good scary move as good as anyone, this was not one. It was like a bad episode of "Walking Dead" with ghosts. I give it a two out of ten for insulting all zombies everywhere.

 

Movie Review... Hobbit....

This is kind of like a group of bad Star Wars characters fighting with swords instead of lasers. If you like sitting through 2.5 hours of chaos fighting then this is the ticket. No character development just ugly and pretty trying to kill each other. I give it a six out of ten for the pretty scenery.

 

Movie review "Unbroken"....

A long sad movie about evil people hurting good people. Jolie is not a great director and her pacing was off throughout the picture. I give it a seven out of ten for good winning over evil.

 

Movie review “Horrible Bosses 2”…..

OMG this makes ‘Dumb and Dumber’ look like a movie about Harvard. I call it ‘The View” for men as three guys try to come up with dumb ideas while all talking at the same time. I give it a nine out of ten for a fun funny movie.

 

Movie review “Gone Girl”….

Great movie about how to deal with socialpath when you are married to them. Some great plot twists that keep you involved from start to finish. I give it an eight out of ten for making you think twice about who you marry.

 

Movie review “St Vincent”…

Bill Murry is at his best making it all appear effortless. A movie about imperfect people and life as well as how we make relationships work. I give it a nine out of ten for making you smile when you drive home afterward.

 

Movie review “Big Hero 6”….

IF you are over the age of 2.5 this movie will assault your intelligence with a vengeance. I walked out after thirty of the longest minutes in my life. I give it a one out of ten for being bad Disney, bad, bad, Disney.

 

Movie review “Dumb and Dumber 2”….

This sequel is as good or ‘gooder’ than the first. Carey and Daniels are in fine form as the follow another crazy Farley Brothers script. I give it a eight out of ten for making me laugh out loud more than once.

 

Movie review “Ouji”…

Another teeny bopper scare movie in which things go bump in the night and people love to split up and walk backward into dark rooms. It has about every horror movie cliché’ and you can see the ending a mile away. I give it a five out of ten to wait for Nexflix only if you really want to go there.

 

Movie review “Nightcrawler”…

Great movie about a successful social path. It is one of those films that make you think twice about who you might mess with. Great story and suspense from start to finish. I give it a nine out of ten for Jake’s crazy eyes.

 

Movie review “John Wick”…

I think Reaves might be going through a weird time in this life for choosing this script. It is nothing but mindless violence with a huge body count. I give it a six out of ten for trying to be Clint Eastwood on steroids.

 

Movie review “Hunger Games” ----

Better than expected with good pacing and story line. I liked it better than the second one and Catless is in fine form. I give it an eight out of ten for making me wait a year for the end of the story you see coming a mile away.

 

Movie review “Interstellar”….

What can I say it was like a three hour Lincoln commercial. It was slow, the story is inconsistent, and the long conversations nearly killed me. I do not see what people see in this movie. I give it a seven out of ten for great visuals but that is about it.

 

Movie Review "Fury"....

First this is not a chick flick... But my friend surmised the only way to describe it as "Powerful". This film about tanks in war and the action is non-stop and the tension keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. War is not pretty but I give this a ten out of ten for being something I will ponder for days after.

 

Movie Review "The Judge"...

Great actors make a movie even with a weak script. That defines this movie. Though the ending really did not match real life but hey that is what movies are for I guess. I give it and eight out of ten for Duvall, Downey and Thornton just being together.

 

Movie Review "Annabelle"...

Yet another scary demon inhabits doll to try and seal a soul movie. Are you terrified? I was not, fell asleep three times. Why do people in horror movies always have to split up?? I give it a four out of ten for allowing me to take a nap.

 

Movie Review "This is Where I Leave You"...

This is exactly the same statement I made when i watched the trailer for this movie.

 

Movie Review "Dracula Untold"..

Poor Dracula is always getting the raw end of the deal as being a bad guy. Well finally this movie gives him a platform for being a nice guy. Good story, interesting to follow and worth seeing. I give it a seven out of ten for the scenery alone along with the setup for the sequel.

 

Movie Review "The Boxtrolls"...

If you are over the age of three this movie will drive you crazy. Intelligent three year olds will probably walk out. I give it a one out of ten for the screaming and stupid script.

 

Movie Review "The Equalizer"...

Yet another old fart in a revenge flick. Denzel does his thing and kills everybody. So if you are up for that you might wait for Netflix. I give it a seven out of ten for the revenge alone.

 

Movie Review "Sin City - A Dame for a Kill"

A cheap dime store detective novel brought to life with vixens for the women and troubled men with dark past. If you are into that type stuff you will love this movie. A great romp with great actors. I give it and eight out of ten for the action and great cars.

 

Movie Review "As Above So Below"

Oh God this is National Treasure with Drag Me to Hell. A great action suspenseful thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The being trapped in tight places scene will freak you out. I give it a nine out of ten for the fantastic Paris setting.

 

Movie Review "November Man"

This is another of the group of movies of old farts being tough guys. I had low expectations but I have to give credit where credit is due Pierce pulled it off with a great action spy thriller. This was a fun movie with a really good script. I give it a nine out of ten for keeping me guessing till the end!

 

Move Review "Guardians of the Galaxy"...

OMG I think they may have cloned Walt Disney or maybe his grandson has taken over the studio!. This is the best movie I have seen since Maleficent but this one is even better! It is a syfy that has great action, is fun and funny from start to finish. The crowd gave a standing ovation! Great writing, character development, and good directing! I give this move a eleven out of ten for being FUN FUN FUN!!!!!!

 

Movie review "When the Game Stands Tall"...

This is part of the new group of "faith" based movies. It about a Catholic school that won 151 games in a row. Sound fishy? Well it was. I happen to sit next to a guy that was on a team that played them in California. he said it was a wealthy school that recruited monsters from around the world giving them free tuition to play. He said every time they were getting beat badly the school would riot onto the field and get the game called so there was no loss. He said it happened to them twice once when they were 40 points up on them. So what did the film show? They never showed it was a Catholic school and they said they won all their games because they loved God so much. It was quiet disgusting after hearing the real story. I give it a zero out of ten for lying about sports and pretending to be about God.

 

Movie Review "Lucy" ...

A movie that did not know what to do with the plot. Most of the movie was close ups of Lucy's face with her trying to look intelligent. It did not work. At the end they just kind of gave up on everything and it was over. I give it a five out of ten for the scary close ups of Morgan Freeman.

 

Movie review "Hercules"...

This was just like the first Conan movie except with more money, a worse script and equal acting. The Rock needs a really good director to hold him together, this one did not. But if you like men in dresses with really tight body armor then don't miss this one. I give it a six out of ten for scenery.

 

Movie review "The Purge 2"

A post apocalyptic Sci Fi movie about the future in 2028. The first movie was hated by critics but I liked it and this one took it a step further. I thought it made an interesting metaphor about the future with many of the strong political views currently being expressed. It was a run away from the bad guys movie with the typical bad decisions being made along the way. I give it an eight out of ten for the metaphors and suspense.

 

Movie Review "Echo"...

A great movie if you are under six years of age. This movie was a very poor attempt to mix the Goonies with ET. The story was so broken up you need a very short attention span to get into it. I give it a 5 out of 10 for only attending if you have small children.

 

Movie Review "Transformers"..

This movie is a combination of Charlie’s Angels with Rockem Sockem Robots. I frankly do not get the hype as the three-hour movie was basically robots shooting and missing each other at close range then slugging it out over and over again. I found it boring and the constantly squealing girl made it worse. I give it a 3 out of 10 for the pretty cars.

 

Movie Review "Tammy"...

A sad comedy about dysfunctional people doing funny and stupid things. It was not as funny as I thought it was going to be and watching people hurt each other is, well, sad. Melissa is a great actress yet she does the same role as the stupid fat girl. I give it a 6 out of 10 for a few good laughs.

 

Movie Review "Obvious Child"...

More like obnoxious child. A movie about parents and their daughter whining and arguing with each other. Two hours worth...I do not find that to be entertaining. I give it a 2 out of 10 for making me think of ways to commit murder.

 

Movie Review "22 Jump Street"....

The first movie was cute with some great scenes and writing. This new one is a complete waste. It seems they dumped the first director, dumped the writers, and thought being cute and acting stupid would be some form of entertainment. I dumped the "Jump" I give it a 1 out of 10 for being a waste of talented people.

 

Movie Review "Day After Tomorrow"....

Groundhog Day with Alien. I am starting to believe Tom Cruse is trying to work out his issues by making movies about them. In the earlier movie Oblivion, he saved the world and had to die but came back to have a do over and live happily ever after.. In this movie he does about a thousand do overs to finally get the girl and live happily ever after. It would seem he is making a statement that if you just give him enough chances he will finally get it right and then live happily ever after. I wish I could be Tom Cruse yet my reality is to crash and burn and find there is no do over or living happily ever after. It must be great to be able to work out your issues on a multi million dollar movie. Just my thoughts... A pretty good film sci fi film. I give it a 7 out of 10 for action and happy endings.

 

Movie review " Maleficent"....

Somewhere Walt Disney is smiling. I loved it! Why? There was a message, and that was; in the midst of hatred, betrayal, revenge, and anger, love conquers all. That thought made me stay through the closing credits with a smile and the warmth of hope in my heart. I give it a ten out of ten for giving 'Sleeping Beauty' a wonderful twist.

 

Movie Review,"Million Ways to Die In the West"

Let's see...Sleepless in Seattle mixed with Saw and Adam Sandler Vomit humor. A very gross,, gory, chick flick. The trailers are the best and there were a few funny lines but it appears Seth was way over his head and drunk with his past success. I give it a seven out of ten for the Daisey scene..

 

Movie review, "Godzilla"...

OMGzilla!!!!! If you are into Godzilla in any way this is the equivalent of a Japanese orgasm! Great exciting movie with a building story line to the grand climax at the end. You have to see this on the Imax! I give it a ten out of ten.for being a dramatic film that keeps you on the edge of your seat!

 

Movie Review Spiderman....

I did not like it. It seems superhero movies have turned completely into formula movies like Disney. No creativity just another cookie cutter super hero movie. Good guy,bad guy, girl, kill a bunch of people good guy wins. Sorry I gave away the entire movie. I give it a five out of ten.from amazement that Lindsy Lohan made it in the film.

 

Movie Review The Other Woman...

Worst movie of the year so far. Horrid writing trying to make women look funny...they weren't. I could only take thirty minutes before walking out. I give it a one out of ten for no reason I can think of.

 

Movie Review Brick Mansions ....

One of Paul Walkers best efforts since the first fast and furious. Yet it was not as good as Escape From NY. Another cookie cutter script in which all evil is conquered and he gets a beemer. Oh God...I give it a four out of ten for this being a better effort than his last three movies.

 

Movie Review Rio 2....

They should have quit when they were ahead. Bad writing bad script cookie cutter movie. If you are over three not the movie for you. I give it a two out of ten for pretty colors.

 

Movie Review The Quiet Ones...

Supposedly based on a true story about a doctor seeking to explain possession as being a mental condition. Good suspenseful movie with some good gotchas.Good character development. If demon movies scare you then you might pass on this one. I give it an eight out of ten for being a good story..

 

Movie Review Captain America...

A better story than the last with a few twists that made it interesting. An exciting movie to see on the big screen. I give it a seven out of ten for action and friendship portrayal.

 

Movie Review From The Rough...

A movie about a college golf team based on a true story. If you can stand the golf it is a good story worth seeing. I give it a seven out of ten for the pics of the actual people at the end.

 

Movie Review Draft Day...

Kevin Costner needs money badly this film is proof of it. I walked out. I give it a two out of ten for wasting my time.

 

Movie review Neighbors...

I liked it! There were a lot of funny lines and the characters seemed to all like one another. The husband and wife interaction was funny as well and the baby was off the planet cute. I give it an eight out of ten for being a fun movie.

 

Movie Review "Budapest Hotel"....

A weird movie. There was three times the verbiage compared to a regular movie as the script tried to make the characters interesting by making them quote whimsical literature. It did not work. The movie was exhausting and boring with one silly story line after another. On the other hand if you are into really great architecture the director featured some amazing buildings. I give it a five out of ten for visuals.

 

Movie Review "Noah" ...

This movie was Lord of the Rings and Twilight on the Titanic. The story had basically nothing to do with the Biblical tale with the exception of boat and water. Russel Crow has to be on crack as no person with their right mind could read this script and want to do the movie. I give it a three out of ten for the stone monster men.

 

Movie Review "Bad Words"...

A dark comedy about a man crashing a child's spelling bee to exact revenge. A unkind funny story that has several scenes that will make you cringe. Not a movie to take the kids to, yet a good date movie none the less. I give it an eight out of ten for the spelling alone.
