  • 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.

  • 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…
