    Valhalla Rising

    Valhalla Rising is one of the most boring films I've seen in a really long time. It's a non-story with non-characters set amidst moody establishing shots of mountains and fog. This film is all style and no substance. The cinematography is beautiful, but it gets so repetitive that I was begging for something different by the end of the first half hour. And though the setting changes (slightly), it offers nothing new. I honestly do not understand at all why…

    Armageddon

    You know, when I started watching Armageddon, it started off so silly that I thought I was in for a good bad movie and I got excited. With each new cast member that was revealed, I got more and more excited because it looked like the setup for a hilarious action thriller. But after about the first hour, I noticed something. This movie was actually taking itself seriously. Really seriously. That's when everything started to go wrong.
