  • The War with Grandpa

    The War with Grandpa

    A cryptic, allegorical war film that everyone needs to see.

    "The War with Grandpa" slyly criticizes all of America's major wars in a hilarious and entertaining way. Not since Satyajit Ray's "Two" has a movie been this clever at portraying conflict between two different worlds. Peter's Grandpa is moving in to his room, so he has to stay in the attic. Peter suggests that him and Grandpa share the room, implementing communist ideologies. The Grandpa represents capitalistic ideals being worn-out,…

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    There I saw it. You happy? Because I'm not.

    Not even my girlfriend liked this one.

  • Hush

    Hush

    I'm kind of surprised how many people liked this movie because I thought it kind of sucked. Perhaps it wasn't unbearable or offensive, but I thought it was just kind of boring. The plot is just another bland home invasion movie with the gimmick hardly being touched on or explored.

    I really did not like the villain and felt like it was bad casting choice on their part. The face reveal comes way too early, and for the rest of…

  • THX 1138

    THX 1138

    I just found it so boring. My use of the word boring is different than how others would describe a movie as 'boring'. I love slow-burning, thought-provoking films, their one of my favorite types of movies; however, with those it feels like there's something building up. In a Tarkovsky film we're always learning or experiencing something. With George Lucas' "THX 1138" I could hardly believe how uninvested I was in this!

    It's hard for me to say why, but as…

  • Space Jam

    Space Jam

    The worst movie I've seen over and over again.

    I feel it's safe to say that this is a lot of people's, if not everyone's, guilty pleasure, and I watched it a lot as a kid and, admittedly even a teen just looking for some nostalgia; however Space Jam just gets worse and more embarrassing every time I watch it. That's really the only thing any adult can gain from this film: Nostalgia, and not really from any memorable moments,…

  • Palo Alto

    Palo Alto

    Ugh, seriously?

    Saw a couple of my new friends share about how they love this movie, which only reminded me of how much I hate it.

    Right off the bat I'll just that I hate teen films (or at least the majority of them) So many of the comedies just tread the same tropes of parties, sex, drugs (American Pie, Porky's,) and the dramas take themselves WAY too seriously (One Tree Hill, LIfe is Strange, any ABC show, or the…

  • Dazed and Confused

    Dazed and Confused

    "That's what I love about these high school girls. I get older, they stay the same age" And thus, the most famous line about statutory rape in cinema was uttered with no controversy whatsoever.

    As you can guess I don't care for this film much, but it's a bit more of a personal reason. I just don't mesh with these films for some reason. But the more I thought about, the more I realized that maybe "Dazed and Confused" isn't…

  • Pan

    Pan

    I had no interest in seeing this movie at all. But then I found out that it featured Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily! One of my favorite actresses and crushes fulfilling the role of one of my earliest crushes? It's a fantasy come true. Because I'm not Brat Pitt, I'll spare you the weird stories and get on with the review.

    Pan is pretty basic, effortless, and generic film as you could possibly think. Well, okay, maybe not that much.…

  • Oldboy

    Oldboy

    If it's one film I really didn't want to see, it was the American mutilation of one of my favorite films of all time "Oldboy". I avoided it, but I finally forced myself believing it could at least make for some good material and maybe make me appreciate Park Chan-Wook's masterpiece a little more. I'll even give it a chance and see if it does anything better. And is there any merit worth mentioning that this film accomplishes? Nope.

    The…

  • Billion Dollar Brain

    Billion Dollar Brain

    Oh man, I hope people don't like this movie because it was... Okay good nobody seems to like it. This movie was not good.

    I thought this was some sort of Kingsman prequel. Michael Caine kind of looked the part, and there was a cowboy organization in America led by '1 Angry Man' so I thought it was similar. Turns out it's the third film in the "Harry Palmer" series. (Palmer, not Potter. It's okay, I read that wrong at…

  • The Legend of Tarzan

    The Legend of Tarzan

    Oh I remember this movie... er, well, I remember I saw it, but if I remember it is a whole other story.

    So sometimes I watch movies with my family, so It gives me a chance to check out more mainstream stuff, I don't push myself to see, and of course spend time with my family. Not being as knowledgeable about films as me, they tend to like a lot of sub-par stuff more than I do and are more…

  • Collateral Beauty

    Collateral Beauty

    Take a drink every time someone in this movie interrupts traffic.

    Collateral Beauty: what a perfect name for what this mess turned into.

    For my fifth installment in my "Trek through the Unknown" series, I subjected myself to watching 2016's biggest failed Oscar bait movie "Collateral Beauty" I have to say, I'm rather disappointed. Not because I thought this would have been good, oh no, I thought this would have been hilarious! I saw the trailer, but once I heard…
