Action/Adventure Movies

Thor: Ragnarok

I finally got around to seeing Thor 3.  This one is getting universally good reviews so you’ve probably seen it already.  Thor was my favorite of the initial Marvel character movies and I would still rank it very high. I came away from Ragnarok very disappointed. The cold open of this movie really sets the […]

X-Men: Days of Future Idiocy

If I don’t write this down I’m going to be pissed off and angry for the next 24 hours so here we are. Days of Future Past is a horrible bad stupid movie. I hated it. I started chuckling at how stupid and naked the exposition was in the first 15 minutes. And that feeling […]

Man of Steel

I held off on watching Man of Steel right away partly because the reviews were extremely negative and it was very difficult to justify leaving my house for 2 ½ hours to go see it.  Prometheus has set my standard for an objectively bad movie, as in, if you like it I have to seriously […]

Superman Returns

I considered reviewing any of the Christopher Reeve Superman movies and decided against it.  My reasoning in this is that telling me you liked the Christopher Reeve Superman movies is like telling me you liked Field of Dreams, or Terms of Endearment, or Howard the Duck.  People talk about these movies and perhaps it informs […]

The Hobbit

So I’ve just returned from The Hobbit. I feel a lot like I did when I saw Dark Knight Rises. I like this movie. If you’re one of the six people who value my opinion on movies, I think you will like it too. But this movie’s kind of a mess. I can really see […]

The Hobbit Volume III: The Scouring of My Wallet

So the Hobbit has become a trilogy… Peter, everyone loved Lord of the Rings. Everyone loved the goddamn 4-5 hour special editions. But the Hobbit is a children’s book. It’s a GREAT kid’s book that anyone of any age can enjoy to this day. But it can be done in 2 movies. I’m not complaining […]

Fixing Dark Knight Rises

So I’ve gotten to hear some opinions about the Dark Knight. I seem to be with the majority in saying the movie is okay, but a satisfying end to the trilogy. One recurring thing is that people are saying is that they have problems with it but they’re not sure how to fix them. Well […]

The Snark Knight Rises

This is a long, complicated movie and it does it a disservice to give it the quick good or bad summary. But I’m going to do that anyway. This movie is okay. There are things I like. But they are good pieces in a film that just doesn’t sit right with me. Taken as a […]
