San Andreas movie review

san-andreas

“I guess this is as good a time as any to talk about our failed marriage.”

I was on a flight from Newark to Denver and I said to myself, San Andreas is exactly the sort of movie you watch on a plane; dial your expectations down and watch The Rock be charismatic.”  I was right, but more than that, this is actually a pretty tight action movie.  Read the rest of this entry

We finally got around to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and… hm. It was good – not great, but certainly good. It’s complicated, but I can at least say it’s better than the first one. Follow me after the jump if you dare – it’s going to be all spoilers, all the time!

Saving Mr. Banks (movie review)

You see that trailer up there? Don’t watch it. It’s both misleading and sorta ruins the movie. But if you did already watch it, that’s OK – you’ll probably forget the trailer once you start watching Saving Mr. Banks because the two are soooooo far removed from each other it hardly matters.

I wouldn’t call John Dies at the End genre bending at its best (this film is a comedy/mystery/horror, respectively) or anything cliché like that, but it’s certainly a good time a the movies. It’s a tight little mystery with a bunch of laughs, surprises and a zany third act. I can’t stress the ‘surprises’ enough – so few movies have any good surprises or take any chances in their stories, but this flick does both and I don’t think I’ll fully appreciate this movie until I see it a second time. If you don’t mind a little gore, I think you’ll dig John Dies at the End. I’m giving it an 8 out of 10. Read the rest of this entry
