#1 Movie of All-Time
#1. Iron Man 3
I know this movie got a lot of crap because of its twists and stuff, but I was ok with it! I am a fan of the comics, but not invested enough in the characters to really care too much what they did with the story. Again, RDJ killed it as Tony Stark and Guy Pearce too was awesome in it. I liked the story, thought the action was pretty fantastic, and I really liked that for once, Iron Man didn't fight a variation of one of his suits at the end.
#2. Gangster Squad
Overall I thought this movie was bland. Based on who is in it, and the director, I expected much more from this movie. The story was ok, but the pace was slow and the only actors that I enjoyed were Ryan Gosling and Sean Penn. Other then that, just blah. I was really let down by this movie.
#3. Ice Age: Continental Drift
I'm a fan of the Ice Age movies. I think they're good for kids, and funny. This latest installment fell flat though. I really didn't think it was all the funny and seemed like they were relying to much on past gags to make this movie work. Also, hearing Jennifer Lopez talk really annoyed me and made me not want to watch. God she's awful, in every way.
#4. Jack Reacher
Jack Reacher was a big surprise to me. It didn't look too interesting to me from the trailers, but decided to give it a shot anyways. I ended up liking it quite a bit and thinking Cruise as Reacher could be a great series of movies. I liked the story, liked the action and overall had a great time with the movie. People should check it out, it's worth a watch!
$5. Hit and Run
This movie was a real surprise for me though. It looked bad from the trailers, but since it was on Netflix I decided to give it a shot. It ended up being a pretty funny movie that held my attention long enough to get to the end. The best part was Tom Arnold. His bumbling witness protection agent was hilarious. In my opinion he stole every scene he was in. The rest of the cast was fine, nothing to write home about, they did manage to get some laughs out of me though, so in the end it was an enjoyable film. Worth checking out if you have some time and have Netflix.
#6. Lay the Favorite
So this movie flew under my radar, and only discovered it searching around Netflix. I figured I would check it out because I like Bruce Willis. That simple. It was a pretty decent movie, but not because of Willis who seemed to just phone in another performance. Rebecca Hall was great in this movie as an ex dancer looking for new work, and stumbling upon a legal gambling ring led by Willis and crew. She does a good job taking the lead here and really carried the movie. Vince Vaughn played his typical character type, but made me laugh and also, Laura Prepon from That 70s Show is topless. Good movie, some good laughs, worth a watch.
Another Cruise flick that I didn't know what to expect out of it because of the word of mouth I heard about it. Mostly, what I heard was the negative side of the movie and how it steals a lot of elements from other films. I myself didn't see what everyone was talking about while watching the film. I thought the film looked great, Cruise did a good job, and the story was pretty awesome. There are twists and turns in the story that I really liked and for me made me more engaged. For a 2nd movie, director Joseph Kosinski is on a hell of a roll in my opinion. He has a great eye for these sci-fi epics and I can't wait to see what he does next. Hell of a movie I had a lot of fun with!
#8. Texas Chainsaw
So to begin with, I have to say that I am a huge Texas Chainsaw Massacre/Leatherface fan. I have him tattooed on my leg for gods sake! So I had to watch this movie. The series overall has been pretty successful in my opinion. With the exception of The Next Generation, i've enjoyed every movie in the series, including this one. This movie was a little bland though being that the direction was kind of shitty and I didn't really like the look of Leatherface. There also wasn't enough blood and gore in my opinion, but nothing that takes away from the movie. What I did appreciate was that they did a few new things regarding this franchise. SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN IT.
For once, Leatherface is running through a crowd of people brandishing his chainsaw. I liked that. That was a new element. Also, Leatherface was not the only bad guy in the film. The townspeople were the real monsters here depending on how you look at it. Also, the family element of Leatherface was different. It showed him taking care of family and caring for them in a different light. Overall not a bad entry. Check it out.
#9. Star Trek Into Darkness
Wow. What a movie. My favorite of the year so far, no question about it. J.J. Abrams did it again, made a great movie that was so much fun and had a lot of heart too. In a way. The cast works so well together and I felt that every one of the main characters got a good amount of screen time and got to shine. Pegg especially had a bigger part in this movie and I loved that! The best part of the movie you ask...Benedict Cumberbatch. Fuck...he stole the show. He was terrifying and I couldn't take my eyes off of him while he was on screen. His performance was amazing. I really hope he gets to play the villain more because he scared the shit out of me! Brilliant. I loved this film. The action was amazing, the acting was great, the story was good and it just hit every note for me. Can't wait to see what Abrams does with Star Wars.
I didn't want to see this movie. It didn't look good, but when the girlfriend wants to actually watch a movie, I go with it haha. The movie started off in a good way though, to my surprise. I liked the direction it was going and was hoping that it would prove my initial thoughts wrong. But it didn't. Not in the least. I was with the movie up until the end and then...it was ruined by a shitty ending that made no sense. Totally ruined the whole movie for me. Also, Chastain was bad. Didn't like her character and it wasn't believable at all. I still don't see the appeal to her at all. The character should have been recast. Overall, a shit film.
#1. Evil Dead (8/10)
A good horror film, but an unnecessary remake. Great direction, awesome gore and lots of blood. Fun movie. Full of bad acting though.
#2. Killing Them Softly (7/10)
Kind of a slow movie for me, but thought Pitt was good in it. I liked the story, liked the direction, it just lost me somewhere in the middle. Worth a watch.
#3. The Day (7/10)
Nice surprise of a movie. Very fucked up, but what happened was surprising which gets points from me. Good cast, liked the characters. Check it out.
#4. Friends With Kids (7/10)
I didn't expect much from this movie. I ended up liking it quite a bit, and even relating to it a bit. Funny stuff.
#5. Frankenweenie (5/10)
I didn't want to watch this, the kids did. I personally had no desire to and the movie didn't help prove me wrong. I found it boring and uninteresting. I didn't like the story and didn't like the animation. I'll leave it with a 5 rating, but i'm thinking it needs to be lower.
#6. Bad Kids go to Hell (5/10)
Big disappointment here. Looked awesome, but wasn't. A bad version of the Breakfast Club that says it's horror, but it's not really. Some ok ideas with deaths etc...but uninspired. Blah.
#7. This is 40 (7/10)
Heard a lot of different opinions on this before I watched. It ended up being funny for the most part. I'm a Paul Rudd fan so I didn't expect anything less. Not as funny as Knocked Up or even some other Apatow movies, but worth a watch.
#8. Unknown (8/10)
This is not the Liam Neeson one. Good movie with plenty of guessing and twists that held my interest until the end. Good performances and a solid story. Enjoyed it quite a bit.
#9. The Thieves (6/10)
This is the Korean version of Oceans 11. Not a terrible movie, but nothing to write home about. Had a few funny parts, some clever tricks concerning the heist, but was really long and just kept going. It's on Netflix and is worth a watch.
#10. Silver Linings Playbook (9/10)
I really liked this movie a lot. All because it was filmed down the street from me. My mechanic is next to the diner and the dance took place in the same room my friend got married at last year. But really, what a great film. Amazing performances, hell of a script, and had 2 of the most fucked up, lovable characters i've seen on film in awhile. Deniro is back and blew me away, Tucker was funny, and of course its 2 stars were phenomenal. Please watch this movie.
So I was sitting here wondering what movie is the most hated here on MFC. So if I were to put this out there and have people respond to it, would anyone actually do it??
So here's what i'm thinking. Under this blog, everyone who wants to that is, post what 5 movies you hate more then anything else out there. I'll go through and keep track and at the end of the week i'll tally the votes to see if there is some kind of solid conclusion and all around most hated movie here on MFC.
Any takers??? If so please post the movies in the comments!
So i'm going to write out a story I just found that I wrote in the 6th grade!!! That was 19 years ago. I am not editing it at all and will write it here exactly how I found it. It's hilarious haha.
Horror on Halloween
It was a dark and foggy Halloween night in 1978. A kid named Tommy was going around scaring people. But, some of the kids he tried scaring disappeared when the fog went by them. Also people have been falling off buildings, and hanging on window ledges.
Later that night, Tommy tried scaring a little girl in a clown costume. But, she disappeared while the fog passed her by. Tommy felt something brush his shoulder. He turned around and saw the little girl in the clown costume dead, lying there with blood everywhere. He looked up. He saw a guy wearing messed up clothes and holding a machete. The guy swung the machete at Tommy's head. All of a sudden there was a scream!
One year later a kid named Bobby Hersker moved onto the street that the kids were disappearing from. It was the day before Halloween and Bobby was getting his costume ready.
The next night when Bobby went trick-or-treating he went onto the main road, Pennell Road. He saw a man standing on top of the police station. Then he fell! He screamed for help but he hit the ground before anyone could do anything. He was bleeding like someone cut him with a knife. Bobby ran so if anyone pushed the man and saw him watching, he'd kill him too.
Later that night, Bobby saw someone in messed up clothes. It looked like he was chopping something with an axe. It was a high school boy. The man turned around holding the bloody axe up high. Bobby ran to his house and the man followed him. Now the man knew where he lived.
That night while Bobby was in bed he was holding a butcher knife just in case the man broke into his house and tried to kill him.
An hour later Bobby heard a noise downstairs. He quietly walked down the steps still holding the butcher knife. He saw the man in the messed up clothes. Bobby ran toward him and cut him with the butcher knife in the arm. He tried to call for help but the phone was disconnected and his parents weren't home.
The man started walking up the steps holding his arm and not holding the axe anymore. Bobby ran out onto the deck with a baseball bat. The man came out onto the deck still holding his arm. Bobby hit the man with the bat. He fell down the steps of the deck and was out cold.
Bobby got a big rock and dropped it on the man's stomach. Five minutes later the man woke up. Bobby ran into the garage. He picked up his Dad's gun, about to shoot the man. When the man came in he had a knife in his hand. He threw the knife at Bobby. Bobby moved so that the knife wouldn't get him. He aimed the gun at the man and shot him. IT WAS OVER!!!
I thought this movie was charming. Some really bad people played by Isla Fisher, Kirsten Dunst and Lizza Caplan. Just horrible friends to Rebel Wilsons character. Dunst does an ok job and it was nice to see Wilson not be the comedic relief for once. 6/10
A decent sequel to The Collector but it wasn't what I hoped for. Some pretty decent kills and some good gore, but the CGI was kind of shitty. Overall a fun movie that didn't lose my interest. 7/10
Man did I love this movie. Everything about it just wowed me. The acting, the story, the directing, just all of it! DDL deserved his Oscar portraying Lincoln. It was brilliant. The opening scene alone had me hooked on this movie. Other great performances as well I thought from Tommy Lee Jones and James Spader as W. N. Bilbo really stood out. 10/10
The Hills Have Eyes 2
This is the original sequel to The Hills Have Eyes. And it's bad. It's bad in an entertaining way though. It has a blind girl who can sense emotions, a lot of racism and a dog who has flashbacks...what? Obviously Craven only made this to earn a pay check. Either way, the movie was terrible but it made me laugh because of how bad it was. I ended up enjoying it a bit in the end. 6/10
The Frankenstein Theory
This movie sucked. The trailer had me completely interested in this movie, but it's boring. So boring. A silly concept I could get behind expecting to see a lot of Frankenstein action, but there was none. Hardly any screen time for the monster. Even when he is shown, he's all covered up. Bad acting, bad directing and a bad movie. Lame. 3/10
Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3
Ok...so I watched this with my daughter and that's all there is to say except this...it's shit. I did giggle once but I don't even remember at what. The chihuahuas were cute though. 2/10
This Must Be the Place
So Sean Penn plays a retired rock star named Cheyenne living in Dublin off of royalties from his music. He looks like a member of The Cure and he looks ridiculous doing so. Not a role I imagined Penn playing, but a role that he took and just went with it and had fun. His mannerisms are amazing, his acting is great and he totally owns the character. It's a unique story too which I enjoyed and Frances McDormand as the wife is pretty awesome as well. The only problem with the movie is its pace. I was really into it at the start, but it lost me near the end and I was beginning to get bored. I did like the ending though. 7/10
G.I. Joe Retaliation
So this movie was a hell of a lot of fun. Better then the first (which I really liked as well). Dwayne Johnson owns this movie. He's great. His scenes with Tatum are pretty funny too. There are other great characters like Flint and Lady Jaye (D.J. Cotrona and Adrianne Palicki) who do an awesome job, Snake Eyes is always awesome and Ray Stevenson did an awesome job as Firefly. Bruce Willis phoned in yet another movie, but I did like his scenes with Palicki, they were funny. I thought the action was great, the fight scenes were great and the movie kept my interest the entire time. The mountainside fight scene alone was worth admission. Hell of a lot of fun with this film. I don't get the hate i've read about it. 9/10
John Dies at the End
I was really excited for this movie. It seemed so weird and different. And it was. There's no question about that, but what held my attention in the beginning didn't hold til the end. That's not saying it's a bad movie, because it's far from that, it just lost me. The characters are great in this movie and the actors completely sell how fucked up they are. The story is great and unique, and some of the visuals are just so random and weird. Overall a great film that just fell flat for what I was expecting personally. 7/10
If you're a parent and want a documentary to completely pull at your heart strings and worry about what your kids will go through when they get older, then watch this movie. If you're a teacher or someone going to school to become one and want to see how not to handle bullying in your schools, then watch this movie. It's a hard movie to watch, but I think it's a movie with a great topic and something that needs to be taken seriously by everyone. It should be watched in schools and should be seen by all students and teachers. All of them. It's sad to think about what can happen just because someone has a problem with someone else because they are different or on a lower socioeconmic status then they are. Sickening. This documentary is a great eye opener to the subject of bullying and really makes you think.
Note: The GIF of Norman Reedus is not from the movie. I found it doing a Google search and thought that if Daryl Dixon can get behind stopping bullying, then why can't everyone. :p
