The plot doesn't really make sense, I mean that goo under the NYC how long has it been there? Is the painting in control of the goo? Where did the painting come from? Why did the weird art director want to unleash hell? The painting could control Dana's baby? Fuck, cheap.
I heard you like Jesse Eisenberg movies? Well, I added another Jessie Eisenberg in a Jesse Eisenberg movie so you can watch Jesse Eisenberg act with Jesse Eisenberg. Seriously though, this movie is weird, but good weird. I guess I should read some Dostoevsky.
Ya know, it's a Christmas movie, the family doesn't get along, they are forced to get along, then they get along. Shake in a bit of Santa bullshit and you have this. Hot Christmas garbage for the fan of bad Robin Williams movies.
I think the key was to go in with low expectations. At least I did and seemed to come out happy about the whole thing. There didn't need to be three movies but Hollywood is ran by dwarves, they are greedy and only think for themselves. This trilogy could have been much worse.
Interesting enough concept to keep me watching, but the characters were very flat. If you really like Saw, you'll probably love this movie. Attention to Ron Perlman fans (Perlfans?), he's only in this movie for a cup of coffee, just so you know.
Unfunny garbage. But maybe I'm the idiot here, maybe if Burnreel existed in the 90's, the same might have been said about Tommy Boy. Maybe. Probably not. I really hope this isn't a millennials Tommy Boy?
So, you thought you felt hopelessness before, well "Break out the wolf's head!" How about the Gollem maturing into a solid maniacal villain. So wrapped up in this that even after reading the books I forgot how it was going to end.
Are you sick of all the awesome story from the first movie, well LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE! The Helms Deep battle has a perfect ebb and flow, on the otherside, the Ents are just cleaning up. Can this really be better than the first? Can it really be worse?
Solid introduction, near perfect. You get a bit of everything, the theme of hopelessness, the weakness of man, solid wizard fight, and a little redemption. As always, I'm reaching for the Two Towers box when it's over.
<This is the part of the review where I make fun of the overall film> It's shit. <This is the part of the review where I write about some of the good points> Bill Hader is in it. <This is where I close the review with a joke to close it all off> This stinks of Waynes bros.
My new Chromecast has me rewatching a lot of movies and this one really makes more sense on a bigger TV (over the iPad). I said it once I'll say it again, "a great villian makes a great movie" and combined with Del Toro's visuals this movie is A+.
The whole story of Ape Science vs Ape Religion is excellent, the effects are tacky but it really doesn't take much to ignore. Some of Heston's facials were hilarious and man, those Apes are piss poor with a net.
An endearing look back at a all female wrestling promotion that thrived in the late 80's. Very digestible, even for non-wrestling fans however missing some conversations from key players. Surprisingly not a dark/seedy as I suspected. Heartwarming.
I'm left fuming after watching this enthralling story of how absolutely corrupt our legal system can be. A documentary that should be seen by all. This is the best thing Peter Jackson (and Eddie Vedder) has ever done.
As a kid I've been to SeaWorld and still have a picture of me and what very well could be Tilikum. Seeing breathing taking creatures live was quite amazing, now with hind sight I'm left pretty depressed. I would never spend a cent on this SeaWorld horseshit ever again.
Like the previous film, I was excited to be back in Middle Earth. Learned from my mistake and saw the whatever the regular FPS version which brough the magic back. My biggest beef is the non-existant ending, but am left jazzed for the finale.
A breath of fresh air from its predecessor. Wasn't amazing, but stood alone well and didn't reek of "knockoff" like the first. Worth a watch if you like tight spaces and fast zombies. Bonus points to zombie cats.
Hard not to be sucked into this film. It's tense. It's gripping. But man, I was left wanting. One thing I didn't want was the ass load of crap bargain bin sequels that it spawned. Watch this and forget the rest.
Dreaded the thought of this movie. But it was ok. Only watched it because it was filmed in Montreal. I was pretty cold on the movie initially, but nothing warms the heart like the power of love, am I right?
I knew almost everything about this film, but never saw it from beginning to end. Knowing all I did about this movie, I was still engrossed in the narrative. Perkins is great (as if you didn't know that) and Janet Leigh is a babe.
Too bad Jennifer Lawrence got tied up in this over booked mess. This "girl in danger" stinker is mainly ruined by Max Thieriot's "performance", but the story doesn't help either. This ain't fit for the bargin bin.
Had this on my watchlist for a while, everyone said it was great and for some bonehead reason I kept pushing off watching it. If you are in the same boat, stop whatever the hell you are doing right now and watch this. A great story (that involves time travel).
A great sequel of sorts to Dogtown & Z-Boys, perhaps more informative and inspiring. I really dig on shit like this. How cool is Rodney Mullen? Dude is heavy. Worthy of a watch even if skateboarding isn't your thing.
Really thought I was going to hate this. The songs, the lighter material, the liberties I knew Jackson was going to take with the text. It's no Lord of the Rings, but I'm pretty happy to be back, walking in Middle Earth. The 48 fps took something to get used to.
Classic 80's hi jinx. They don't make 'em like this anymore. Sadly, it took me 23 years to finally catch this, now all those references make sense. How about that Bruce Dern? This guy is going places. #anytimemovie
This movie really worked well in 1999. The internet wasn't as ubiquitous as it today. I wasn't sure what was real and what wasn't regarding this movie. As far as the movie itself goes, it's a slow hike up terror mountain but worth every minute.
Did you know this film cost $15,000 to make? And made something like $200,000,000 at the Box Office. Now, shit movies make a lot of money, this isn't one of them. A slow build to terror that works perfectly.
This movie eluded me for a long time. Countless times I've walked into the local film shoppe, perusing the middle isle for this gem. Found it finally last week and wasn't disappointed. Best Anderson movie I've seen. It's the Anderson movie to see.
The subject of Norwegian Black Metal is very interesting to me, however this film struggles to keep focused. Would have liked a better edit. It's worth a watch only if the subject tickles your interest.
Great change-up from classic Smith movies. His dialogue style is there but that's about it. Compelling tale, that doesn't follow a mainstream "path" (for lack of a better word). John Goodman is fantastic.
