Doctor Zhivago review

Posted : 1 day, 22 hours ago on 17 September 2017 10:23 (A review of Doctor Zhivago)

This was a fantastic depiction of the events of the Russian Revolution as seen from the eyes of the people affected by it. In short, Dr. Zhivago got a pretty raw deal, as well as most of the Russians. It is concerning how quickly even a little bit of power goes to the head of those who wield it.

The romance of the story is tragic, and not completely a pure thing. For instance, Zhivago's wife is devoted, loyal, and loving, yet he cheats on her. Regardless, the characters do what they must to survive in a dreadful time and it is compelling to watch. 8/10

Mother! review

Posted : 3 days, 21 hours ago on 15 September 2017 11:23 (A review of Mother!)

This was super weird. Trailers made me think it was a horror movie, and it kind of feels like one at points, but I don't think it really is. Tons of symbolism, and clearly an allegory, but parts of the symbolism were hard to fit with the characters. At least it was thought provoking, but don't go expecting horror. 7/10

Roman Holiday review

Posted : 1 week, 2 days ago on 10 September 2017 08:41 (A review of Roman Holiday)

A princess rebels and we get to see her day covertly touring the city of Rome. It had its share of comedy, and the interaction of the characters kept it entertaining throughout. If modern "romantic comedies" were more in this style, I think I'd be more inclined to watch them. I also appreciate the realism, in that sometimes things don't work out perfectly happy in the end. 8/10

IT review

Posted : 1 week, 3 days ago on 8 September 2017 11:27 (A review of IT)

So, the clown is creepy, and there are some scenes that are intense, but I never really felt it was that scary. It also suffered from the typical horror movie problem of wondering why the behavior of the monster changes. Obviously, the easy answer is because the script calls for it, but it lacks in in-story explanation. Same to be said for the kids deciding that they need to stick together, and then, almost seemingly on purpose, run away from each other at every turn.

The story of the kids becoming friends and doing things together was interesting and well done. However, their interactions with literally everyone else in town was over-the-top ridiculous. That all adults were cartoonish villains, and the bullies were over the top aggressive and everywhere, just made it hard to believe. It would have been appropriate if this had been a kids movie, but with an R rating, that clearly was not the intent.

Finally, it didn't help that pretty much every scene of interest was already shown in the trailers. These might have bumped the scare factor, but expecting them took all of the suspense away.

A bummer, cause I was looking forward to this one, but it really had me waiting for it to just end by the cliched finish.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 review

Posted : 7 months ago on 20 February 2017 04:03 (A review of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2)

Wow, so amazingly painful, right from the start. Aggravating and annoying behavior masquerading as "comedy". Terrible.

Vacation review

Posted : 10 months, 1 week ago on 14 November 2016 04:19 (A review of Vacation)

Well, they tried, but the jokes fell short and felt forced. There were a couple of amusing spots, but not enough to make it worth watching. They probably could have done better by editing out the R-rated material and having expanded it to include a larger audience, since maybe some of the jokes would have been funnier to kids? Dunno.

Ouija review

Posted : 1 year, 5 months ago on 1 April 2016 12:47 (A review of Ouija)

Wow, that was an hour and a half I'll never get back. Dumb from the beginning, I knew it wasn't going to get better when I laughed out loud at the ridiculous and predictable first death. Disjointed, boring, confusing. I found myself wondering if I should make myself finish watching, or just give up. I chose wrong.

Additionally, at the very end, it mentioned Hasbro studios and that it was based on the game, "Ouija" by Hasbro. That might have been the best part of the movie.

Hexcells Plus review

Posted : 3 years ago on 1 September 2014 02:42 (A review of Hexcells Plus)

Challenging puzzle game that is a souped-up minesweeper. Though it doesn't seem like it at times, all the puzzles can be done without guessing. Fun, but short. Still, an enjoyable experience.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen review

Posted : 3 years, 8 months ago on 14 January 2014 04:18 (A review of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen)

Lazily written fan fiction with a cast of characters that have entered the public domain with plentiful painful winks to the audience. Cringeworthy. Yet, still entertaining, if only in a trainwreck kind of way.

Thirty Flights of Loving review

Posted : 4 years, 1 month ago on 23 July 2013 04:22 (A review of Thirty Flights of Loving)

This has to be the scammiest, crappiest, shortest "game" I have ever played. 5 minutes of moving a character around but not really ever getting a chance to do something. Absolute trash.
