I think that all of the funny material was shown in the trailer. Watch the trailer for Horrible Bosses few times and I think that you will be alright.

There, I just saved you a rental fee. Or possible bandwidth.

I knew it, I knew it, I fucking knew it! One of those films that just cruises along just because of the name. This film should be ashamed to even carry the Conan license. Now before you think that I am being to hard on an action film and action films are not supposed to have substance. Think about the many other films that require you to turn on "popcorn mode" and are not this atrocious.

Don't expect this to be an amazing horror film, but for what is worth it isn't that terrible.

Wow! What a difference two goddamned years can make! I am assuming that all of the original production team disbanded after the original. Because this film is horrible. It simply disobeys all logic setup by the first film. Then proceeds to changed the film to a more comical horror. Which fails massively. And finally, the biggest sin, the "wishes" are just plain terrible. Not clever in the least bit. If a little bit more touching up on the script would have been done this may have been a decent follow up. Fail!

Wishmaster (1997)
Alright, say what you will about this genie film. Wishmaster hasn't aged too badly in my opinion. Sure three wishes seems kinda silly, and it does, believe me this 90's horror film works. (The special effects also hold up very well.) It isn't a must see by any means. Trust me. But if it comes on SyFy late one night I wouldn't be in a hurry to change as quickly as a SyFy Original movie.

It may be possible that I was expecting way too much of Megamind after watching many other amazing animated films of the year. It has a laugh or two, but overall it felt, I don't know, forced?

Laying around the house we decided to watch a film on Netflix. Due to the fact that my significant other has an odd affection for low budget movies, Uninvited Guest seem to suit our need for a quick laugh. This film surprising works. The first act isn't too strong, but does it ever pick up the start of the second and does a decent finish during the third. (At times it falls in to a common problem in low budget films, overacting.) Overall, I would have to say it wasn't a terrible way to spend two hours.

1. Teenage kid has a premonition.
2. Avoids possible upcoming death along with others.
3. Death decides to *sigh* finish his mistake ASAP
4. People die in various ways, each lamer then the last.
5. Central character manage to make it to the end.
6. Celebrate their new found appreciation of life.
7. Then Die. End.

Above is the whole script outline for any Final Destination film.

Oh, I forgot. To increase profits:

8. Shoot film in 3D! Genius!

Green Lantern (2011)
I thought that maybe my extreme dislike for this film had to do with the fact that I am not a fan of Ryan Reynolds, but simply put...it doesn't. This film just downright fails. Say what you will about Ankin Skywalker, Reynolds is the most recent nominee for wooden acting award of the year. There is just so many persistent issues with this film that even to just turn your mind into two hour "popcorn" mode Green Lantern still manages to render itself annoying. Pass on this over saturation of CGI porn by any means.

Brutal, would not be an adequate enough word to describe this film. Shocking maybe. It is a great film, but make damn sure that you have the stomach for it. All of the viciousness that you heard about it is probably true.

I had such low expectations for this film that I actually never considered viewing it until it reached my local Redbox. Call me pleasantly surprised! All of the bitter taste of all the previous X-Men films have been somewhat washed out of my mouth. One small gripe of mine though would be these C-list mutants accompanying the A-list. Yes, I know this is a back story, but damn give us some better mutants!

Calling this the best Mafia related film since Goodfellas is a little bold, but this film isn't without it's charm. Ray Winstone delivers a gripping performance as the Irishman that the Mob couldn't kill. If you have an interest (such as I do) with almost anything Mafia (or organized crime syndicates) then go ahead and rent this film.

Call it ham-fisted and ripe with lame one liners, but I liked this movie for what it is. This film knows what it is and doesn't attempt to apologize for that. Take it for what it's worth. Pure Popcorn!

And where can I find one of those muscle cars for under 10k? If anybody has a lead e-mail me. Really!

Yet again another film destroyed by the PG-13 beast. Sort of. Sometime ago I read an article (Cracked.com, I believe) about the gruesome origins of some of our most famous fairy tales and I always wondered who would have some guts to put one of those versions on the screen. What we get is a half-assed attempt to do just that. This film clearly does not know what it wants to be. It has some elements of Scream (Who is the wolf? My new dull forced husband-to-be, my bootleg Edward boyfriend with the perfectly gelled hair, or any of the 50 dull residents of our little town?) Twilight (all of the tween actors look like they walked straight out of an ad for American Eagle of the 1300's), and Dawson's Creek (some shitty love triangle). The one saving grace as usual was Gary Oldman. He approached the film how it probably should have been handled, campy. Learn younger actors, learn.

Oh and studio heads, maybe, just maybe if I was 9 years old the shitty CGI wolf might have frightened me...maybe.

True Grit (2010)
This isn't a understatement in the least bit, but everything works in this movie! I found myself being captured by the sheer brilliance of The Coen Brothers. If anything I was going in pretty bias because I am not a fan of Westerns. Every Oscar nod and praise this film deserves. Right up there with Inception with jaw dropping films that I have viewed in the last two years.

Scream 4 (2011)
Trying not to spoil anything, this film is basically a remix of the first Scream. Just when you think that it is about to fall into the cliches that it pokes fun about it changes the game once again...somewhat.

You know what? I liked this film, it brings back some of the good Sci-Fi elements that some of the more recent films have been missing. Shame though, it should have done better at the box office. Come on Sci-fi nerds where were you! Oh and yes, Brody got it on with an hybrid! Fuckin' right! Spread those wings baby!

Devil (2010)
...trapped on an evaluator with the Devil seems like a Twilight Zone episode. Another victim the neutering of films by giving them the PG-13 rating.



M.Night...fail.
Mr. Lays's rating:
Oliver Stone's first ever sequel. I really wanted to view Wall Street before I watched this. Just to get some type of familiarity with the characters beforehand. Anyways, this film had moments of greatness, then loses it a few minutes later with odd moments. What really upset me was the weak ass ending. Even though Dad stole $100 Million from me, lets forgive him and buy a bubble machine. Really?! Gekko would sell your newborn if he could turn a profit. And fuck his donation! He gives one only AFTER he makes $900 Million off of it!. It's just part of the game I suppose...
Mr. Lays's rating:
As much as I enjoy gangster movies, I've never seen this. Even though I watched this film on cable (*sigh* edits and the commercials), it didn't diminish how much I enjoyed it. Alan Payne is very enjoyable to watch, but the supporting cast, not so much. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the modern coming of age of a gangster from his younger days. Find this film if you are a fan of gangster films.

Nine Dead (2011)
Haha, this film is hilarious! I know what torture porn is in, but the defining factor usually is how well is the story line written in my opinion. Yes, there are going to be scenes of grotesque, but how did it come to this? Nine strangers are unknowingly brought together and told that every ten minutes one of them will die, unless they figure out the common link between them. At best is run of the mil.

Sly returns with as many of the 80's "A-Team" that he can gather to show how a proper action supposed to be done. This film has it moments. Overall, I enjoy the "fuck the plot and let's shoot some minorities" plot, but did it really need so much goddamn CG blood?! It looks horrible on film in my opinion.
And please somebody give Jet Li some money to give to his family!

Maybe it's just me, but lately I have grown a little tired of Seth Rogan "phoning it in". There are so many annoyances with this film that I almost couldn't bring myself to finish watching it! Overall, I guess it does what it needs to...provide a popcorn flick with little soul. I feel this movie also suffers form the PG-13 rating bogging it down. The one saving grace was Christoph Waltz. The man just knows how to play a villain. If it wasn't for him I would have gladly took that damn "Hornet Sting" gun and gladly shot myself with it!

And answer me this, why the fuck was this film in 3D? To view Kato twist two bottle caps off a couple of beers? Please spare me!

I know that this film is shooting for the zany feel of The Hangover, but it falls a little short in my opinion. While Due Date does have it's moments, it isn't on the top of a must see comedy list. Even if Zach brings the beard.

Faster (2010)
This film is straight very forward. The Rock will kill those whom killed his brother...Nuff said. It has that old Chrales Bronson action flick sort of feel to it. After reading some trivia on Imdb.com I read that was the feel that the director is going for. Mission accomplished! I throughly enjoyed this film.

My oldest kid wanted to saw this at a local Redbox and begged me to get it. It's really unfortunate that this was one of Dennis Hopper's last films. There really aren't too many The Lion King calibur movies nowadays are there. Matter of fact if you have The Lion King on VHS/DVD/Blu-ray, load the damn thing in and watch it again. Trust me, I just saved you a dollar.

The Town (2010)
Myself just like everybody else was a little skeptical about Ben Afflack being the lead and directing, but dammit how all of that doubt was erased after the credits started rolling. Afflack, personal opinion, already proved that he had some chops by directing the amazing Gone Baby Gone, but was it just a one time thing? Hell no! I highly recommend this film to any of the doubters, like me, of Afflack. One of my favorites of the year.

Machete (2010)
Who would have thought a "fake" trailer could produce an actual big budget flick. Starring none other than everybody's favorite henchman Danny Trejo. Simply put if you enjoyed GrindHouse then this is a must see. Otherwise, pass. To borrow from my fellow Listal member T-Pulla, the movie plot is far to serious for such a B-movie premise. It really should not be this convoluted.

I dreaded watching this film, but I was pleaseantly surprised, it isn't that bad. I have a low tolerance for Diaz's acting and Cruise is could go either way. I enjoyed the oddness of his character. It saved the film in my opinion. Everything else is run of the mil.

I loved this film! Admittedly, the story just feels thrown together, but it makes it up for it in the end with an amazing finale. Also just because you may guess what the "big surprise" is doesn't take away from the impact of it. How it became that way seems a little silly in my opinion though.

Cera is a hit or a miss for some folks. Films like Year One don't work, while others like Superbad do. Doing the dead-pan humor is his shtick (just like Mark Strong only does criminal mastermind roles) and it works...at times. Nevertheless, enough about Cera, I love this film! I cannot say enough great things about it! If you enjoy everything geek and 8-bit this will feed the soul.

Not being much of a fan of romantic comedies, I did not expect to enjoy this much. My preconceived notions about the genre were gratefully crushed. This film may have a little of the obviousness that plague this genre, but it just works. I even sobbed up a little.
