I decided to see this to see how bad it is and because of the interesting cast. The cast includes Adrien Brody, Lindsey Lohan, Rob Schneider, and Michelle Rodriguez. Wait this is directed by Billy Mays' replacement??? It parodies in order 127 Hours, Seven Year Itch, Dirty Harry, and some others that are pretty unfunny. It was so boring I kept doing other things until I finally finished it. Please avoid this at all costs.

Nurse (2013)

This has an interesting cast consisting of Katrina Bowden, Corbin Bleu, Niecy Nash, Judd Nelson, Boris Kodjoe, and Paz De La Huerta. I am not sure if Paz is pretty or not she has a look to her that is either you find her oddly attractive or far from it. Paz's narration was really unnecessary and takes away from the film in my opinion. Also could have done without seeing Corbin Bleu's butt! Paz tries way to hard to be sexy in every scene even when it isn't necessary. The script is really awful and I could see Youtube's Cinema Sins guy tallying quite a bit of problems with this movie. That was atrocious! It felt like parts were missing. The characters were oblivious and lame. The only thing this had that is worth seeing is lots of nudity and blood, but even that isn't really worth much. The blood even looks really fake. Leaves you wondering what happened and feeling cheated.

Android Cop (2014)

So I decided to watch this because I saw Michael Jai White on the cover and that Charles S. Dutton was in it as well. Then I saw the production company was Asylum and regretted at once that I picked this and that Michael Jai White went so low. The CGI is awful as you would expect. The android is pretty silly looking and the voice is awful. "That's not what I see." Wow the acting and dialogue is pretty awful and cheesy. Okay so there is actually a pretty interesting twist I didn't see coming. Charles S. Dutton seemed like he thought he was in another movie. It was pretty bad, but it wasn't the worst thing I have seen.

I saw that a sequel has come out and I've only seen the first one so I decided to check the rest out. It's the usual culprits involved in a Troma film with Lloyd Kaufman being the only really known person for me. It is godawful, cheesy, ridiculous, and low budget and just exactly as you would expect from a Tromaville movie. It has a pretty cool cameo of one of the major players of the Troma Series. It has quite a bit of boobs which is typical in most Troma movies as well. It is pretty awful, but generally what you would expect from one of these movies.

I have been curious about this American remake of the original Oldboy for awhile. I hear bad reviews about it, but mostly that is from people who have seen the original. I have seen the original as well, but I am going to watch this as if it is the only version I have seen. Plus it has a great cast consisting of Josh Brolin, Elisabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, Sharlto Copley, Michael Imperioli, James Ransone, Rami Malek, and Lance Reddick. I really didn't like any of the characters in this one and you really don't feel bad for the "hero" or the "villain" as they are all really messed up and disgusting people. The acting is alright. It was pretty boring though and not much happens. There are a few decent fight scenes. There are scenes that pay homage to the original, but for the most part it is just it's own movie albeit not a very good one. The flashback scene was more funny and creepy than tragic. The twist was altered, but pretty much the same as the original. I would say skip this one and just watch the original.

I decided to check this out for no particular reason other than it has to be better than The Starving Games and it kinda looked like it could be funny. Also the director wrote Piranha DD, Sorority Row, Good Luck Chuck, Piranha 3D, and So Weird so it can't be that bad. Plus I enjoy Jamie Kennedy and Martin Klebba. The plot is actually kind of intriguing as the categories involved are goofy. It actually states good points about remakes, sequels, and spoofs which means not only does it make fun of other movies, but it knows it is silly too. Bruce Jenner was funny to see.

I can't find Class of Nuke 'Em High 3 so I decided to watch a Toxic Avenger cartoon movie targeted at young teens. It's basically a mash-up of episodes from the TV series with some scenes edited out. It is cheesy as usual, but the tamest of Troma productions as it is going for a different audience than usual.

Buck Wild (2013)

I decided to check it out because it's a new zombie movie and it might be funny as well. For most of the actors in this it marks their first film. Joe Stevens is probably the only slightly recognizable face. It is really cheesy and over the top, but it is entertaining. It isn't the best or worst zombie film out.

I always like a good WW2 era film so I decided to go ahead and see this. It has a very interesting cast which includes George Clooney, Matt Damon, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, and Jean Dujardin. George Clooney is also the director of this. The acting is really good and this has some funny scenes as well. For the most part it isn't very eventful except for a few scenes which can be a little bit emotional. It was a decent watch, but wasn't really anything special.

I tend to be a sucker for checking out horror movie sequels even with the possibility of them being terrible. Sean Astin and Jillian Murray are the only recognizable faces in this. My biggest problem is that on IMDB it gives a completely false plot. This one has nothing to do with a cruise ship. Instead it has two stories that work their way together. One being with Sean Astin and some scientists. Okay what the hell kind of scientist exposes so much chest and why is she so ditzy for someone who should be intelligent. The other story is about 4 friends who go to an island for a bachelor-type get together for the main character who is getting married. The acting isn't very good, but it is tolerable for some of the time. There is one really gross scene that I could tell was going to happen, but it was still shocking to see. There was a good amount of gore and the ending actually made it pretty decent. I am thinking the plot they put on imdb for this one is meant for Cabin Fever: Outbreak.

I kind of enjoy Vince Vaughn and I thought the idea was pretty funny. It also has Cobie Smulders, Brittany Robertson, and Chris Pratt. 533 children is pretty scary to imagine! With that being said I think for some people this would be considered a dark comedy haha. Chris Pratt was the funniest thing about this movie. It felt like they didn't do a whole lot that they could have done.

JCVD in a comedy with his daughter Bianca (possibly his son too, but he doesn't seem to be credited), Adam Brody, and Dennis Haysbert. I'd say that is a pretty interesting cast. Also I checked it out because it looked pretty damn funny. It is pretty much like The Office meets Lord of the Flies. It is so ridiculous and over the top that it is actually entertaining and funny, but it was a bit of a let down. JCVD proved that he can be funny though. It felt a bit short even with a regular runtime.

So this is a youtube series that goes together like a mini-series or short movie. The idea is not original, but it seemed cute and I like pretty much anything that Ray William Johnson is involved with.

Act 1- It was predictable, but it was still cute. I adore the Jay character. The ending was the only thing that really caught me off-guard. 7/10

Act 2- The repercussions of time travel cliche in this episode. Not as good as the first act, but it was funny. 6/10

Act 3- That was such a sad and surprisingly great episode. The acting was the best so far. It had a nice twist I didn't see coming. The end left me curious for more. 8/10

Act 4- Trevor is the kind of nice guy most girls avoid and so I kind of relate to him. I'm glad he gets the attention that nice guys should get. Oh wow I didn't see that particular twist coming even though I should have. 7/10

Act 5- A good final act. I like how everything turned out. The end leaves you wanting and expecting more. 7/10

R.I.P. James Gandolfini

James Gandolfini in one of his final performances alongside Toni Collette, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Catherine Keener. The story adds an interesting new twist to the rehashed falling in love stories. Gandolfini and Dreyfus have such charming chemistry together. I really adored them.

It isn't your typical run of the mill concert movie it actually has a side plot thrown in for extra measure. The plot of the story that is intertwined with the concert is not what is in the bag its about the symbolism of the roadie's journey. It was great to hear a lot of the songs I love from Metallica. Overall it is quite entertaining and gives you a nice rush.

Well I'll be damned a horror movie about racism involving a dog. I saw this on someones list here so I decided to check it out. The only familiar faces in this for me are Dick Miller, Paul Winfield, and Folsom the Dog. It starts off sweet and innocent. Then things get pretty messed up and sad. The acting is pretty good for a movie from the early 80s and it is a realistic take on the horrors of racism. I like that this deals with the issue of it is man that is the monster. The ending is pretty sad and unexpected. If you are paying attention though it makes a lot of sense.

47 Ronin (2013)

I been wanting to see this because it looks pretty cool and Rick Genest the Zombie Guy is in this! It has a good cast including Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Rinko Kikuchi, and Tadanobu Asano. The acting is pretty good and the role even fits well for Keanu Reeves. It has some good elements of a typical Japanese movie as well even though it isn't a Japanese made movie. It has some good action and some interesting creatures as well. Not a bad watch and far from boring. Slightly different than the typical Samurai story too. The final battle is pretty cool as well as the ending. Check it out.

Finally watching something from before my time this month. Something I have been planning to watch for several years and just never got around to it. John Carpenter is awesome. It has a few great cast choices including Kurt Russell, Donald Pleasance, Jamie Lee Curtis, Adrienne Barbeau, Tom Atkins, Ernest Borgnine, and Isaac Hayes. It is a pretty cheesy and definitely shows it's age. It is still enjoyable and interesting to watch. The music score is definitely classic of John Carpenter's movies. The last 20 minutes or so is when it gets really good. Snake Plissken for the win

RoboCop (2014)

I have been wanting to see this since I heard they were making it. There is no way it can be worse than the rip-off Android Cop. I am not going in expecting much because as you know remakes don't always hit their targets. On a good not it does have an excellent cast consisting of Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Michael K. Williams, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, and Aimee Garcia. Joel Kinnaman is a pretty decent actor in this. I thought the idea that caused him to become Robocop was really lame and tame so that it could be PG-13. The action is way too infrequent. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action including frenetic gun violence throughout with a rating like that you expect more than you get. The villain wasn't all that interesting in this one unfortunately. The acting is pretty good. It's not a bad watch all things considered.

Camp Dread (2014)

I decided to check this out for horror ladies Danielle Harris and Felissa Rose. It has Eric Roberts in it though which says that this should probably be avoided. Also it is pretty funny that Felissa Rose is in another camp type horror film. So it is somewhat low budget with most of the actors being relatively unknown. The premise is not really new as we have seen several reality tv show style horror movies such as Wrong Turn 2 and Cruel World as well as Zombie TV Show Dead Set. The acting was actually pretty good from even the less known actors. Most of the death scenes were pretty tame. The twist was actually pretty good. It is worth a watch if you like 80s style horror films.

So I have been hearing many mixed reviews about this so I decided to check it out for myself. Also for the obvious reason of me being a male lol. I hate the way the main girl eats with her mouth open in every seen where she is eating, just gross (in my opinion). The acting is pretty good and feels real. Adele is average looking in my opinion, but she gives off this glow that makes her beautiful. The sex scenes are a bit over the top, but still enjoyable to watch (Yeah I said it, so what.) All in all it was pretty good although I didn't really care for the ending that much.

I felt like watching some stand-up and what better way than with one of my favorite comics Kevin Hart. Most of the jokes are pretty funny. A nice little show to watch when you need to sit back and just relax.

Well I was wanting to see this because I love Kevin Hart comedies and Ice Cube is awesome. Tika Sumpter is such a beautiful woman. Glad to see John Leguizamo be in a bigger role in live action than he has been lately. Laurence Fishburne seems like he is losing his game though. I liked the quick cameo of youtube star Emmanuel Hudson. I thought this movie was hilarious especially the scene with David Banner. A must see for any Ice Cube or Kevin Hart fan.

So for the first movie back in the states I watched this. I have to say it's quite a hidden gem, but it is such a dark and depressing movie. The beginning starts off with one disgusting and sad scene with the following scenes constantly pulling your emotions down. The acting is great and the story is interesting. Not something you really would watch again or even suggest to others, but it is an interesting movie.

Regina King and Brian Tee are what caught my eye. Plus I find Gabrielle Douglas to be a beautiful young woman. I didn't know that she had such an interesting and difficult background growing up. I really enjoyed this and the acting was pretty good. I don't really understand gymnastics all too well, but that didn't keep me from losing interest.

I decided to check this out because I have seen it on many movie diaries. It also has some actors I enjoy including James McAvoy, Imogen Poots, and Jamie Bell. This is a dark comedy with some really disturbing content left and right. There was one strange scene that I didn't see coming, but it was rather funny. I find that the name of the movie truly makes since with the content. James McAvoy pulls off a complicated character very well. He is really making a big name for himself. That twist was pretty mindblowing and unexpected. I was definitely caught off-guard. This won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it definitely is worth checking out.

Geoffrey Rush and the fact that this takes place in World War II is why I was so interested in it in the first place. The acting is pretty good. I loved Geoffrey Rush's character. It also is interesting to see the civilian German people rather than usually the ones involved with the war and Hitler. I was very intrigued with the way it was narrated as well. The ending was bittersweet, but altogether it was a great film to see.

I have always liked legos and now they've put it on the big screen. It also has an awesome voice cast consisting of Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders, Will Arnett, Will Forte, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Allison Brie, Charlie Day, Elizabeth Banks, Anthony Daniels, Charlie Day, Dave Franco, Jake Johnson, Keegan Michael Key, Channing Tatum, and Nick Offerman. It also has Will Ferrell and Jonah Hill, but I am not really a big fan of theirs. There are a lot of good references to old lego environments and toys, some good humor for kids and adults, and even some good action. I loved it and laughed several times. I would recommend this if you like legos and/or animation. This time Batman loses!

Brad Dourif reprises his role in another Chucky sequel. There are also two cameos that you will not see coming! This was pretty good and definitely my favorite Chucky movie. It isn't silly like the rest of the series and actually builds some good suspense. The acting is pretty well done. There are even some odd twists you don't see coming. Even the death scenes are pretty cool. The only thing I had a problem with is how long it takes to get to the juicy stuff and I wish it had more characters. I really loved this as it is the best of the series in my opinion! Oh and make sure you watch until the credits are over.

Oh my gosh I have been waiting forever for this! It has an excellent cast which includes Peter Dinklage, Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn, Margarita Livieva, Jimmi Simpson, and Summer Glau! The idea is kind of like The Evil Dead meets Role Models. This was totally worth the wait! It has great acting, fun characters, and lots of funny moments. The death scenes are pretty messed up and some are unexpected as well. The ending was pretty awesome. Definitely better than I was expecting and I was expecting a lot. Definitely check this out if you have time.

I love Leonardo Dicaprio movies so I decided to go ahead and watch this. I also decided to check it out because of the hype. Also Matthew McConaughey, Jon Favreau, Shea Whigham, Jean Dujardin, Jon Bernthal, and Ethan Suplee are in this. For the first time ever I actually enjoyed Jonah Hill's acting. I really enjoyed the entire cast of this and thought they did a wonderful job. It is pretty explicit with drugs, but that shouldn't take away from you seeing this movie. Yes there is brief explicit homosexual acts, but there is also quite a lot of heterosexual acts in this too. So unless you have homophobia you should check this out. It was actually pretty funny and quite an interesting watch for 3 hours which you won't get bored by sitting through.
