The Raid Redemption 2012
Act Of Valor 2012
- A great film if you like:
-military action films
-things blowing up
-things blowing people up
-people being shot at
-people shooting back at people shooting at them
-people being shot
-people being shot by people they’re shooting at
-one thing triggering another thing
- The story is okay, the action is okay. Can you live without ever seeing it; maybe. Will you regret watching it; maybe… maybe not.
Big Miracle 2012
- I shouldn’t have watched this. I can admit that. I like animals and films about animals, but this did nothing for me. I don’t know how this got made. Seriously though, it had really thoughtful and inspiring moments. I could’ve lived on without watching them.
A Little Bit Of Heaven 2011 (2012 US)
- I have to be nice. This is actually a Kate Hudson film, other than Gossip and Raising Helen, that didn’t annoy me. I mean that in a good way. What I really liked was the story and how it was told. Honestly, I’m not really considering the acting. It’s just so refreshing to find a film that didn’t cling to trademark stereotypes given the subject of the film. It’s cute, sad, and 100% chick flick. All in all, not a bad watch.
*s - soft, S - solid
Run Recap 6/29
The Sitter 2011
- Not bad, not bad at all. I’d even watch this again.
- Out of 10, a 5.
The Decoy Bride 2011
- After the first ten to twenty minutes, I knew exactly where this was going. Nonetheless, this is an okay ride. It’s a true chick flick with pockets of funny. I liked every character and that is rare. I have nothing bad to say about it. I’d watch it again. I’d even buy it.
- Out of 10, a 6.
21 Jump Street 2012
- I have to say it. Somehow, they got this right. It was all things it should given the cast. I laughed, I laughed again, then I laughed some more. Yes, at certain moments I found myself wonder why whatever had sparked amusement was funny to begin with. Even that did not suppress my laughter. Still storywise, this was predictable. You already know where it’s going once it starts. However, you will laugh… a lot.
- Out of 10, a 6 maybe 6.5.
A Thousand Words 2012
- Cute. This was close to being another Imagine That for me. (which was just so gosh-darn-it-adorable) I find it funny that there tends to be a common theme if you will with all the films I’ve seen by Eddie Murphy. If I’m not mistaken more often than not, these movies do not fare well in the box office. However when I watch them, there always this moment when I’m like; “I totally get what you’re trying to do. For some reason, it’s not working.” If just once the comedy note was removed; you might actually have a great film.
- Out of 10, a soft 6 (specifically a 5.8)
This Means War 2012
- This was exactly what I expected to be. It had its moments and that’s that. This is one that you never buy. You just catch it every once in a while whenever it’s on television.
The Grey 2012
- I’m team Wolves all the way. It’s so much better that way. Sidenote, exactly how old is Dermot Mulroney?
- I really liked this. I glad I missed it in the theaters, but I had a strong feeling was worth watching. I was right. This could have been a great anti-bullying ad.
- S6 (6.5)/10
Tyler Perry’s Aunt Bam’s Place 2012
- Okay, bad multiple musical moments are in no way, shape, form, or fashion an adequate replacement for inadequate dialog. DrunkListed!
- s1 (0.01/10)
Good Deeds 2012
- Okay. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Good Deeds. I am bit surprised that I can actually say that, but it is very much so true. Nonetheless, there are some THINGS I think I should have been prepared for. Honestly, I don’t think that could have been possible. My only problems with this can be summed up into: Things I don’t need to see EVA-EVA-EVA-AGAIN-FOR-EVA. Tyler Perry, in kissing situations of any kind. Tyler Perry, in suggested nude situations. Tyler Perry, in suggested sexual situations.
- Out of 10, I say 5.8. I can be nice, so a soft 6.
Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance 2011
- I do not have much to say about this. I know one thing though; this had better been the last one. Seriously, I don’t know how some movies even get made. Even if I let the story slide, the rest is still on another something that is awful. 3D… why?
- Out of 10, like a 3.75. I could be nice, but that’s still a soft 4.
The Woman In Black 2012
- What was I supposed to get from this? DrunkListed!
Man On A Ledge 2012
- So not what I expected. New Rule: From now on, trust no comparisons but my own. This is good watch. Dare I say I’d even watch it again? I especially appreciate that it wasn’t drawn out unnecessarily.
We Need To Talk About Kevin 2011
- Shall we not… While I’m at it, I won’t even talk about this movie. And for that matter, let’s not dare consider the book. Therefore, I have no need to explain my feelings on the book to movie problems. DrunkListed!
Young Adult 2011
- Drunklisted! That’s all you need to know. I’m officially saying watch at your risk. I can’t even say that there was anything to it. I didn’t really laugh and I most definitely didn’t cry. I just felt nothing for the lead character. The story as a whole was nothing I thought was worth investing myself it. This is one of those you keep expecting something to happen, but it never does.
- 1/10 (should be 0)
- This could have been so much better. I could have easily let the aggravating build up slide. However, the ending is a downright crying shame. Don’t get me wrong, the movie isn’t horrible. I just craved something different. A marginal ending causes one to reflect on the frustration induced by watching the movie in the first place. That equals a dockage of rating points.
- Out of 10, a 3.
New Year’s Eve 2011
- Never fall for the hype of overcast movies of any kind. (yes, especially animated ones) It is extremely rare that they actually deliver. Just as Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve was a bit whatever. I might have laughed here and there, but none of it warrants a repeat watch.
- Out of 10, a solid 5.
Underworld: Awakening 2012
- One word… Awesome, followed by a ton of these !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Considering the 6 year gap between Evolution and Awakening, it better had been. (yes, I skipped rise of the lycans. Though an okay addition to the series, for me (and anyone else who thinks similarly) these films have and always should be about Selene. There was nothing about Awakening that I disliked. A couple of reasons to watch this:
· Good sequel
· cause I said so
· Smart story
· Again, cuz I SAID SO
· I won’t disappoint (if it does, I don’t care)
- Out of 10, a solid 7.
We Bought a Zoo 2011
- I am amazed how much I like this movie. I think it was everything it needed to be. I don’t know what we are really to expect of child actors. Maggie Elizabeth Jones and Colin Ford (young Sam Winchester as told by my lil sis) somehow delivered. Just as Lightening McQueen, this movie creates feelings in others that they themselves don’t understand.
- Out of 10, a 6.
One For The Money 2012
- Oh what a surprise it is I find… that this movie… didn’t make me want to scratch out my eyes. This was actually watchable. Though, the title made me want to see Two For The Money. (McConaughey + Pacino) If anything it was a little long. Sometimes unnecessary length adds to dryness, therefore making some films unbearable. There were a things that I can never be unseen and flaws I blame on the story. Every book doesn’t equal a good film.
- Out of 10, a 5.
The Vow 2012
- This is everything you think it is. Even that is saying too much about this movie.
- Out of 10, a 5.
Run Recap 5/5
- Hop was a complete surprise in that it didn’t suck as much as I thought it was. Yeah, it’s a bit cheesy; but in a cute way. It has its moments of funny. As a fellow drummer, much respect to E.B. and his skills. I don’t have anything really bad to say about it. I will say this, it’s definitely better than The Smurfs, Yogi Bear, and Popper’s Penguins.
- Out of 10, a 6.
Johnny English Reborn 2011
- I don’t recall ever seeing the first Johnny English (I probably have.) and I doubt it’s necessary to enjoy this ridiculous sequel. Ridiculous is meant in the best way. It’s completely what I’ve come to expect whenever I see “staring, featuring, or with Rowan Atkinson.” This move is funny. I’d watch it again.
- Out of 10, a solid 6.
