    Scream

    ★★

    Scream five and yes it is five despite the dumb title(Funny how they didn’t even reference basic renaming), is unfortunately a bad retread of already familiar waters. I see reviews of people raving about how this is the best sequel and I’d have to disagree. Scream four for me is my favorite sequel(Though two has grown on me the more I think about it so don’t quote me just yet)and a great way the franchise should have ended in the…

  • Bounty Killer

    Bounty Killer

    ★★★½

    Today I watched two graphic novel adaptations films (Well one and a half. Officer Downe was split into two nights due to watching it late yesterday night unfortunately) Officer Downe was the first I watched and the most disappointing, but Bounty Killer is a much different story. It’s weird though since the date of the first graphic novel issue was either around the same year or just one before the film’s release. Odd tidbit I know, however it’s still an…

  • Hell Hath No Fury

    Hell Hath No Fury

    ★★★★

    Give it time and I’m sure this movie will be remembered fondly as a cult classic of DTV action cinema. Outside of a minor slow bit in the middle, this is still a great action film with a unique one location setting in a cemetery. They made full use of this area by providing different angles for where various characters can attack, which makes the action even more varied. I love that JVJ is a director that isn’t afraid to…

  • Officer Downe

    Officer Downe

    ★★½

    Man more like "Officer Let Downe", because this had so much potential and it didn't fully live up to any of it. First off it's based off a graphic novel character that is like Judge Dredd but with more Deadpool style humor(Minus the meta jokes). Unfortunately, the attempt at trying too hard to be funny is obvious and as a result the jokes suffer by coming off as embarrassingly bad. It's just weird quirky humor just for the sake of…

  • The Lego Batman Movie

    The Lego Batman Movie

    ★★★★½

    Can't believe I thought to myself back in 2017 "Man that trailer sucks, this movie is going to be ass." That should give you an indication of how badly I judge books by there cover because that is the same thing I thought about the Get Out trailer and I ended up loving that film. Surprise surprise, the same thing happened with this one, I loved Lego Batman for it's and colorful style, fun iteration of characters, and how well…

  • Rampage: Capital Punishment

    Rampage: Capital Punishment

    A horrendous political commentary that is just way too on the nose for it’s own good. Uwe Bill thinks he is so smart for making this film when really it’s just a trashy exploitation piece that lacks fun since it tries too hard to be edgey. I don’t remember the first, but I don’t think it was as bad as this. This is a horrendous film on its own though.

  • The Big Gundown

    The Big Gundown

    An enjoyable but overrated spaghetti western. I like the theme of racial tension between mexicans and americans at the time and the idea of following the orders blindly. However, the core story is a little basic. With that being said performances are great and the actor by Ennio Morricone is fantastic.

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    This to me is still one of the best and lost entertaining comic book films ever made MCU or otherwise. I would have liked to have saved my rewatch for when I get to the marathon(Same with Endgame that I’ll be watching for New Year’s day) but my friend really wanted to skip to this one and honestly it’s still great. With that being said I will hopefully be getting back to this one soon againwhen I get to my marathon this year. Either way happy new year’s eve!

  • Mad Max 2

    Mad Max 2

    ★★★★½

    This fucking film right here blew my mind. I can’t believe I watched it once and didn’t care for it, the action, the grittieness, it is all here and in full effect. The Road Warrior builds upon its predecessor so wonderfully in a way that develops the character from a regular road cop who lost his family, to a guy that has now lost himself entirely. He literally doesn’t give a shit and any shred of optimism for life the…

  • Above the Law

    Above the Law

    ★★★★

    Above the Law is a great debut from  for Seagal as it showcases his signature style so well before it became repetitive. His wrist snapping, his 9mm pistol blasting, his aikido beatdowns that was barry featured in action before he came on the scene. What makes the proceedings even better is the accompanying cast of Pam Grier, Sharon Stone, and the always entertaining Henry Silva. It makes the film more fun to have all of these actors around to support…

  • Mad Max

    Mad Max

    ★★★

    Rewatching it for a Mad Max marathon. This movie frustrates me because despite it being batshit, or having some crazy stunts, or even my fave actor Mel fucking Gibson in his first real movie, the movie still feels underwhelming and tame. I don’t buy it being a harsh world since it’s pretty much a preapocalypse. It just feels like less then what we’d get from better post apocalyptic films that it inspired. This may be an important film, but not Gibson's best outing if you ask me.

  • Law Abiding Citizen

    Law Abiding Citizen

    ★★★

    The first half of Law Abiding citizen is great. It was a great fast forward of events that I thought would have been saved for last, which made the rest of the film very unpredictable. And it did a great job on delivering it’s promise as the first few set pieces definitely delivered the goods in terms of shock value. However, come the third act and the whole thing falls apart and the ending felt very rushed and not as…
