  • Pet Sematary

    Pet Sematary

    ★★★

    Pet Sematary (2019) is one of those films you watch and just expect to hate but you leave the theatre surprised that you actually enjoyed it or at least that's how my experience. My girlfriend went to see this for me and she's a huge Stephen King fan even though she hates horror, she read the book loved it, watched the movie liked it but she didn't like that the remake was so different from the original source material. I'm…

  • Pokémon Detective Pikachu

    Pokémon Detective Pikachu

    ★★★

    I can see why people like Detective Pikachu but personally there was nothing I found very intriguing or memorable about the story. I loved the visuals and the character designs were incredible but the acting was below subpar for the most part and the story was just boring. I will say the film showed some heart at times and it does have it's entertaining moments. I will say the film delivers on some of its promises like the movie is…

  • Dora and the Lost City of Gold

    Dora and the Lost City of Gold

    ★★★

    I finally watched Dora And The Lost City Of Gold and it was surprisingly not horrible. Listen, obviously, this movie wasn't great but it surprisingly did have a lot going for it. It's a solid film for a family to just sit down and enjoy, it was actually a lot of fun and entertaining. The whole movie is over the top and is filled with cliches and lazy writing but the movie was made to be stupid fun for kids…

  • The Farewell

    The Farewell

    ★★★

    I don't know why I didn't love this film, I mean it's structured perfectly and is the type of film I'd normally love. Something personal, a little fun with great moments and pacing but for some reason, it just didn't resonate with me. I'm not going to make my in-depth review yet because I'm going to give it a second watch and see if I find a new perspective on it.

  • Brave

    Brave

    ★★★

    Pixar Marathon Film #3

    Brave

    Brave was one of the films that specifically made me want to rewatch every Pixar film in the first place. I know that this film is one of the more mixed reviewed films in Pixar's catalogue but I remember loving this when I was a kid so I wanted to see how my opinion changed. Brave isn't a horrible film by any means, it has some great moments and scenes. I loved the dinner table…

  • Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island

    Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island

    ★★★

    Ya know what I love Scooby-Doo and this wasn't a horrible follow up to the original film. I will say that I had my problems with it from time to time but overall I really enjoyed my experience, hell I watched it with my girlfriend and her little sister and we all liked it so if your a scoob fan you will probably enjoy the nostalgia of watching this film. With that being said it obviously isn't great so I think settling on three stars is only fair.

    Rating: 6/10

  • Monsters and Men

    Monsters and Men

    ★★★

    Monsters and Men is a movie I've been wanting to watch for a while and now that I've finally watched the movie I can safely say that I'm pretty underwhelmed. The movie wasn't horrible but I found it hard to get invested in this movie. A big reason was because I believe that the characters and dialogue don't live up to the realism a lot of recent films with similar concepts have been able to achieve. I guess this kind…

  • Under the Silver Lake

    Under the Silver Lake

    ★★★

    At times Under The Silver Lake can be funny, charming and captivating yet is littered with nearly unwatchable and boring moments. A film that is centred around mystery should be intense but most of the time I watched this film I felt so disconnected to the characters and ideas presented in this movie that I just felt bored. Under The Silver Lake shines from time to time showing random glimmers of genius writing but those moments are few and far…

  • For the Birds

    For the Birds

    ★★★

    Currently watching the special features on the monsters inc blu ray and I'm loving these short films!

  • Mike's New Car

    Mike's New Car

    ★★★

    It was a lot of fun!

  • Regression

    Regression

    ★★★

    I honestly liked this movie for what it was. I liked the old school crime thriller atmosphere and style of this film. It reminded me a lot of a mix between other great crime thrillers like a bit of Memento and Shutter Island but not nearly as good as either of those films. The ending to the film was godawful and I was worrying as we got closer to the end that it would end like that. I think all…
