this is another case of an unappreciated sequel, purely because the first is put in a pedestal, now do not get me wrong, to me the first is a masterpiece, but that does not mean that i should compare it to its own sequels, the job of a sequel is to deliver a different kind of experience while maintainig the same concept/world that its set in, and should always and i mean always hold its ground on its own, and this movie does exactly that so its extremely unfair to do that kind of comparison, because by itself the movie is not trying to be the first one, instead it focuses on delivering a different kind of story, with a few memorable moments aswell, and like i said it succeeds very well at doing so.

Score: Pretty Good!

21 (2008)

A good movie but in my opinion it drags itself for too long, and does not explore a interesting concept to its full extent, which ends up working against it. the use of cliché confrontations is also a problem, like the one guy in the group decides to try to screw everything up, even though, they are working for the same objective, it just seems forced and unrealistic, i feel like with this type of concept more original paths could be taken with the movie and that unfortunaly did not happen.

Score: Good.

Truly a classic never the teenage minds and troubles were so well represented on screen, a simple story about Five kids that go for detention and end up going through a journey of self discovery and understanding, its quite interesting that a movie with 30 years (can´t believe that much time as passed) still succeeds at being so accurate, Love it! and even if all you see is cliche tropes you still can´t deny that we all have a bit of all the characters inside of all of us and we can learn with them.

Score: Awesome!

Watchmen (2009)

Rorschach's Journal. October 12th, 1985: Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll whisper "no."

To me the only superhero movie that can actually call itself dark (that word seems to be thrown around at random a lot nowadays) and in my opinion one of the best out there, can´t really express how much i love it, beautiful directing, awesome characters (Rorschach rules!), and of course great respect for the source material, Zack Snyder truly shines on this one.

Score: Awesometacular!
mrhoundoom's rating:

cool battles, preety decent animation and decent storyline, make of this movie a good enough experience to me, the only possible problem i have with it is that some of the voice actors dont really fit in the characters (example of Owlman and Johnny Quick) and at times the story seems to be a bit over the place, but its not too distracting since the movie wraps up nicely .

Score: Pretty Good!

The Artist (2011)

Very cool and also risky concept, and in my opinion successful, the movie does indeed feel like a legitimate silent film from the era, wich only shows great derecting and acting, some people say that the movie sounds a bit pretentious in regards to its position on silent films, but then again my interpretation of the ending disproves this and i do believe it was kind of intentional, so overall an awesome movie and a breath of fresh air on a time time that needs it.

Score: Awesome!

Doom (2005)

For what it is i guess you could say it is a good movie, i mean it does not explore original ground, we have seen this plot many times in other movies and sometimes in a better way ("Pandorum" comes to mind right now) but, taking in consideration that its a movie based of a videogame, i guess you could say that its one of the best i have seen of its kind, and what i mean is that your expectations should not be very high when watching it, instead just enjoy it for what it is and you can still feel somewhat entertained.

Score: Average.

The Villain (1979)

Weird mix between westerns and looney tunes, the movie itself its not that great, and after a while it just feels repetitive, but the wierdness factor kind of redeems it, specially if you are watching it with someone (wich was my case) because it ends up being more funny to see yours and the other person reaction to the ridiculousness on the screen than the actual "comedy" of the movie.

Score: Average.

Big Hero 6 (2014)

interesting and compelling story and also surprinsingly more "adult" than most kids movies wich makes me think that disney is slowly learning that kids can indeed handle it, great characters and great exploration of them, not to talk about it being beautifully animated with probably the best visuals i have seen in a disney movie ever, whether it deserved the oscar or not i dont know but i sure do know that it was awesome!.

Score: Awesome!

Gattaca (1997)

Had to watch it after so many people recommended to me, and in the end, i cant say i´m disappointed as the movie is not necessarily bad, but, i also don´t hold in such high regard. Like i said it is a good movie, and it explores a very interesting world, but in my opinion only scratches a portion of that world and at times it just feels like in favour of certain aspects of the movie it ends up ignoring others, what i mean is that there is some very interesting characters in the movie that are just not explored enough ( example of Jerome) or not at all (Dr. Lamar, German), just to give space for the love portion of the story, and with this type of interesting concept i think that hurts the movie a little bit.

Score: Good.

Warm Bodies (2013)

This is a nice movie, and an interesting take on the zombie genre, even with all its cheesyness aside, it ends up being a big and nice breath of fresh air in a genre that in my opinion is walking dead for a while now.

Score: Pretty Good!

even though i didin´t grew up with the character of Pee Wee (the show didin´t air where i live) for some reason it still seems like such a familiar character to me, and what that means is that i had a lot of fun watching this movie, not to talk about my poor ribs from laughing so much, hopefully i will be abble to say the same for the new one that is coming out

Score: Awesome!

A good movie but falls a bit on the average side when compared to other Disney movies, even including the hidden gems, but if you watch it for what it is and ignore any kind of comparisons it is still entertaining, was also suprised by the accurate representation of Sherlock Holmes, as a mystery maniac, always attentive, but sometimes a bit selfish.

Score: Good.

i can see why some people thought this to be a disappointment, mostly because it promises a lot with its cast wich ends up falling short, and on top of that its strangely paced with at times being very slow and all of the sudden it looks like it wants to pick up just slow down again, but despite these flaws, i actually liked it, it has nice characters that i felt interested in (not invested, interested), an actual nice story to it and some funny moments, definitley not a failure as some people call it.

Score: Pretty Good!

Weird Science (1985)

At first i though that i wasn´t gonna like this movie at all as in the beginning it seemed to be all over the place and didin´t seem to know where it wanted to go and the concept seemed a bit too random, but as time progressed, i got accustomed to it and it also seemed to pick its pace and path and actualy ended up being an enjoyabble film, yes it is a bit predictable, but if you look past that it is still a rather funny movie.

Score: Pretty Good!

People who added this item 645 Average listal rating (407 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 6.9

In order to fully understand it i actually had to watch it twice and what i realized is that for you to be abble to fully have a grasp on its meaning you have to view it as puzzle of sorts, in an acting point of view it does not disappoint specially with an incredible one man show by Jake Gyllenhaal, overall, great concept and a great challenge for the mind with creepy and eerie vibe and visuals, but, i just feel like the movie "eats" itself on its complexity, wich at times is too much and unnecessary and, i get it, the movie is trying to not give everything on a platter wich is nice to see (and appreciatted), but, again, in my opinion that actually ends up working against itself.

Score: Good.

Saul: BFFF?
Dale Denton: Best Fuckin' Friends Forever, man!

If somebody asked me to describe the perfect stoner comedy, i would have no doubt on what direction to "point" them to, nobody can surpass Seth Rogen and James Franco when it comes to portraying a legitimate bromance on screen, extremely quotable, extremely funny and surprinsingly a decent action flick at the end, a good time all together.

Score: Pretty Good!

I'm a Catholic whore, currently enjoying congress out of wedlock with my black Jewish boyfriend who works at a military abortion clinic. Hail Satan, and have a lovely afternoon madam.

I talk about this one more in detail in my review here, but for the lazy ones ;), its an awesome movie, and like i say in the review, go give it all the moneys.
mrhoundoom's rating:

In general a much fruitfull month than the last one, but i still feel like im not on full motion yet specially taking in consideration that i still have not watched a lot of 2014 movies that i wanted to watch.

when it comes to the quality of the movies not a bad month at all as i feel that no movie deserved a bad score from my part.

And don´t forget feedback is always welcome.

The way my rating goes:
☆- (ಠ_ಠ)....
★- what the?!
★☆- Very bad.
★★- Just plain bad.
★★☆- meh...
★★★- Average; Good.
★★★☆- Pretty good!
★★★★- Awesome.
★★★★☆- Awesometacular!
★★★★★- Superb/Masterpiece.

Best Movie of The Month: Watchmen.
