(10/17) Fury, Book of Life, The Best Of Me, Birdman

Fury I have a few apprehensions going into Fury. First of all, I’m worried that the film will focus on the excitement of war from the confines of a tank cockpit, and that this could translate as boring.

Top Three War Movies I Always Go Back To

Top Three War Movies I Always Go Back To

screen-shot-2014-06-25-at-3-50-30-pm

There’s always an abundance of war movies. Any film maker looking for an Oscar need only find a soldier to hear countless amazing stories. And if they’re not exciting stories, they’re stories of character and friendship. So it really is no wonder that we’re constantly fascinated by them. There are three war movies that I can’t call my favorites of all time, but I go to them constantly for…

Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day

Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

I’m so sorry, people. Really, I am. I posted that even though I knew there was really no reason to be excited, my nostalgia was getting the better of me for this one. I was excited to see it. What a deplorable movie.

The classic book, which focuses around a young boy having a terrible day, is only sort of used here. First of all, the running gag of Alexander wanting to move to Australia is…

Dracula Untold

DraculaUntold_trailer

The greatest villain, one of the creepiest, and one of the most popular in fiction…and I was so boreddddddddddddddddddddddd.

Okay. So the movie actually isn’t that bad. Actually, there’s a few things in it that I found reassuring. This is supposed to be part of a Universal Monsters series, a rebooted monster film series that will incorporate monsters in a similar way to the Avengers incorporated…

Kill The Messenger

jeremy-renner-in-kill-the-messenger-movie-6

I’m definitely a conspiracy supporter. I’m not crazy enough to think that every conspiracy theory is well grounded and supportable, but I absolutely believe that the government has its methods and abilities to manipulate situations to their liking for gain or support. Nowhere in recent history is this more obvious than in the story of Gary Webb, a journalist who went from being a hero to a pariah…

Why I Criticize Animation Heavily

Why I Criticize Animation Heavily

The-Lego-Movie

A lot of my friends who know me know the reality of my personality – I’m loud, openly critical, and not afraid to speak my mind. But there’s one place where this is abundantly clear, where I truly make my opinion known. It’s also where I piss off the most people.

Why am I so critical of animation?

It’s definitely no secret. I hate bad animated movies, and great animated movies are some of my…

(10/9) – Alexander, Dracula: Untold, The Judge

Dracula Untold Oh good, it’s every other action movie ever made. This movie looks so painfully generic and so unrelated to Dracula that I simply can’t look at it positively.

Top Three Favorite Kids Movies People Kinda Forgot About

When I first read the news that there was going to be a Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No-Good Very Bad Day” movie starring Steve Carell, I was PUMPED! I was so excited to see how this movie was going to turn out, even if it was just going to be a mess of lame slapstick. This was my favorite children’s book growing up! I told all of my friends…who had no idea what I was talking about. I was…

Okay…I’m gonna write this now…because somehow, apparently, for some reason, with no real reason, I must have accidentally deleted and forgotten a post to this movie. I am ashamed. Because this movie is an absolute masterpiece.

Boyhood, for those of you living under a rock, is one of the most significant movies of the year. Richard Linklater shot the whole movie over the course of eleven years…

Gone Girl

Screen-Shot-2014-04-14-at-4.08.56-PM

Ladies and gentleman, we have my first 5/5 review in a while, and the first of Oscar season! Seriously, how many movies can you name that have their intrigue in a  cast of only incredibly unlikable characters?

Gone Girl is a movie based on a book that, surprise, I haven’t read. But the trailer left me feeling actually a little underwhelmed. I mean, it looked okay. But the story was just another…

Annabelle

ANNABELLE

To review a mediocre horror movie is a really difficult things to do. There are only so many times you can say “that’s not scary”, and so many times you can think “I wish this was so bad it was funny”. Annabelle absolutely in this category.

Because apparently everyone was demanding a spinoff of the doll that was in, what, two shots of The Conjuring (?), this movie tells the prequel story of the…

Left Behind

Screen Shot 2014-10-03 at 10.06.17 AM

It has to be said – this wasn’t AS BAD as I thought it was going to be. Don’t get me wrong, it’s pretty unbearable. But as far as unbearable movies go, I’ll defend that it’s at least better than, I dunno, Master of Disguise.

Left Behind tells the “true story that just hasn’t happened yet” prophesied in the bible, where god will bring all of his believers and those too young to believe into heaven…

The Month of Horror - What Do I Look for?

The Month of Horror – What Do I Look for?

Fall means lots and lots of things that I love. I’m basically a white girl when it comes to fall. I love changing leaves, apple cider, pumpkin spice everything, apple picking, jumping into piles of leaves, and of course, Halloween. Which means we’re really in the month of horror, and with a few horror films slated to come out this month as well as a few having already come out, I figured now is a…

(8/2) Annabelle, Gone Girl, Left Behind

Friday Trailers! Time for a pretty clear cut week, one of each rank! Annabelle As if The Conjuring wasn’t lackluster enough and Chuckie isn’t silly enough, looks like we’re gonna see the two combined!

Top Three Reasons We DON’T NEED A LEFT BEHIND MOVIE!!!!!!!

Screen Shot 2014-10-01 at 10.28.51 AM

I remember when I was a little Jesus freak in middle school and high school, I watched Left Behind and thought it was a cinematic masterpiece. Yeah….about that…it’s pretty awful. Like, REALLY terrible. It suffered from ridiculous heavy-handedness, horrendous acting, a laughable script, completely pointless plot threads, and a really painful “trying-to-be-an-action-movie” vibe that just didn’t…
