maniac - I have watched two episodes so far. really interesting. The plot is interesting but nothing new to it but the ambient is so peculiar and original that I though the show was adapted from a famous novel or something,it feels like a brand new video game!gotta give the writer some credit for this ambient ideas. The interesting thing is that it feels like two different time zones mingled together. Computers and every electronic device looks old but at the same time they have AI's smarter than humans. I couldn't find any novels associated with this show. But I found it is based on another norwegian show with the same name. I haven't watched the norwegian one, which one is better?

Patriot (Amazon Series)
9/10

This is my second time through it.

It's a brilliant slow burn character dark comedy. Sooo good.

Boarding School

8.5

Oddball in a good way. Not a Disney movie, in a good way. Not sure what to compare it to. Maybe similar to a decent, quirky Coen Brothers film.

Down a Dark Hall

7.5

An okay suspense/ghost story. Uma Thurman is really good in it. Maybe better than the film deserves, heheh.

Annihilation

8.75

I was very cautiously hopeful about this one, rather expecting it to suck. But it's a pretty cool Sci Fi. The ending succeeded in more-or-less wowing me, so. For people who like Under the Skin. [SPOILER]And, man…that lady's screams mixing with the mutant bear's vocalizations was one of the creepiest things in all of cinema, that I've seen/heard in a long while.
[/SPOILER]

Brad's Status

A very touching slice-of-life film. Love Ben Stiller. Great supporting cast.


Living Dark: The Story of Ted the Caver

7

It was so-so. Not so bad. Low budget horror

Avengers: Infinity War

8.5

Fairly good.

We've Forgotten More Than We Ever Knew

7.4

It was okay. Mysterious. Unclear, but kind of interesting.


The Meg:

7.5

Fairly decent shark monster movie.

The Lodgers.

7.5

Not too bad of a thriller.

American Pastoral

8.85

Good political, family, historical drama. Ewan McGregor really is one of the best actors of our time.

Mandy

8.95

Pretty damn cool.

The Endless
7.5
Fairly decent.

Upgrade

A pretty fun ride. I haven't heard all of it, for sure, but from what I have heard, the soundtrack is quite good.

The Surface
Solid quality for a small indie. But story-wise it left me feeling dissatisfied with the protagonist. Maybe it will grow on me.

As Above So Below
7.5
Pretty solid horror/thrill film

skyscraper - 4/10
Nothing new to it. Lots of logical flaws in scene structures, I guess the writer didn't think the scenes through, he just wanted to get it over with. Many writers actually think that way. They think if they have some interesting exciting scenes, those will cast a shadow over other flaws of the movie and the audience won't notice them! The problem comes from 2 things: 1.Either the writer is stupid. 2. Or the writer thinks the audience is stupid.

Ju.-on: the beginning of the end 2014. 7/10

Ju-on series are great for sending a chill down your spine. This movie had some seriously creepy psychological scenes. But the story is what it has always been, nothing new to it.

The Interview 4/5

Nice to see Hugo Weaving play the opposite of an authority figure. Great acting.
This is a movie that is based around two guys in a room talking and it unfolds quite nicely.

Eight grade - 8/10

Great movie! The best teenage movie so far. Realistic and extremely cute at the same time

Captain Fantastic
7.5/10

Pretty good flick about a deeply idealistic and sheltered family with believable characters whose lives are shattered by the mental illness and death of their mother at the same time that their maturing children are developing their own identities, wants and desires.


Basically that even sheltered strong idyllic idealistic families are dysfunctional and face struggles regardless of trying to "check out" from the world community.


Not really a complaint but in the architecting of the protagonist family they did a little too much "black and white" in making the family members (Ben's sister and Ben's In Laws) unsympathetic and a little too simplistically "bad guys" in their own ways.

Its wanting in the budget and special effects department. But they still managed to make a nice little movie.

Heredity

Some great suspense and very dramatic scenes.
Some very stupid character choices.

So.. great as far as horror movies go

A Civil Action (1998)................................. 9/10

I've seen parts of this movie in the past but I just recently got to watch the entire film from start to finish. It's based on a true story which is great. It's a lawyer movie but the character that John Travolta plays changes for the better even though he goes broke. I think this movie does a good job at showing the shift and there are some fantastic edits too. Everyone in this movie is at the top of their game and it also sheds light on the turbulence of going to court.
