  • Django Unchained

    Django Unchained

    ★★★★★

    Django Unchained is tons of fun, a great revenge movie done brilliantly by Tarintino. Absolutely loved it, great cast and I really did think Jamie Foxx was fantastic in this. Excuse my shitty review, but my head's still buzzin' from the film.

  • The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

    ★★★★

    While no where near as brilliant as The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy I did enjoy the film to an extent. It dragged on in some scenes,there is no reason it had to be as long as it is, some trimming down could have helped the film a lot. Loved the trolls scene but the moment the film felt like it was picking up was when they entered the goblin lair and the riddles with Gollum. Jackson is doing a decent job but I do hope he amps it up in the second film if he is to return to the glory of The Rings films.

  • Swingers

    Swingers

    ★★★★½

    I wish Vince Vaughn would do movies more like this, he's hilarious in this film. Also, Jon Favreau wrote the fabulous screenplay full of life, dialogue and great characters. I did see this film when it came out in theatres and it remains one of my favourite films to this day. It's so money it doesn't even know it.

  • Cashback

    Cashback

    ★★★★★

    A favourite, funny, heartfelt and poetic.

  • Clueless

    Clueless

    ★★★½

    Clueless is a 90's classic, it's a fun and often pretty funny movie with tons of great lines. Do not judge this film from the cover of the poster, it looks like a chick flick on the outside but on the inside its a movie than even guys can understand and like.

  • Masked and Anonymous

    Masked and Anonymous

    ★★

    I'm not sure I understand this movie or what happened, nothing is really explained or makes sense. It's kind of a philosophical film, lots of people musing about life and shit, Bob Dylan leads a pretty great cast who seems to be wasted in this film. Dylan wrote the story with Larry Charles, and I guess if you get his lyrics and who he is then you'll understand the premise of the film. I was lost and still am.

  • The Who: The Kids Are Alright

    The Who: The Kids Are Alright

    ★★★★

    Concerts and interviews of the band, wish I was around to see these guys perform in their prime.

  • Howard the Duck

    Howard the Duck

    ½

    Yup, pretty bad

  • Sleepless Night

    Sleepless Night

    ★★★★

    Intense French thriller, Taken meets Die Hard in a night club if you wish. Main character Vincent is a cop who is bent on getting his son back after drug dealers take him in order to get their drugs back. You feel Vincent's sense of desperation, the film does a nice job of keeping you on the edge of your seat. I really enjoyed this film.

  • You Can Count on Me

    You Can Count on Me

    ★★★★★

    This is a fantastic film, the dialog and the acting just flows. Ruffalo is a stand out in this giving a raw performance, he plays Terry so well and I think the relationship between him and Linney's character was so well done. I too thought Ruffalo and Culkin interacted well together, it was good to see an adult talking to a kid without being condescending. Lonergan's directing impressed me as well.

  • Killer Joe

    Killer Joe

    ★★★★

    Damn, what a movie. Extremely dark and disturbing but I think I really enjoyed this fine piece of filmmaking by William Friedkin. Does Matthew McConaughey get the credit he deserves and get an oscar nom for this? I sure hope so as he is fantastic in this film as is Juno Temple. I'm still thinking about this film and how much it has stopped me in my tracks and made me digest what I just saw. Powerful film indeed.

  • Prometheus

    Prometheus

    ★★★

    It's alright, definitely a movie that tries to hard to look beautiful, which it is but looks alone can't save a movie. The acting for the most part was alright, I liked Theron and loved Elba and Fassbender. Most of the characters were unlikeable as a lot of people have been saying and I have to agree. Decent, but not great.
