This is not to approve or disapprove any of these movies, necessarily, and it’s not to say that some of these movies don’t deserve more detailed reviews in the future. I just wanna try something different – so here it goes.
Dumb & Dumber: One of the greatest dream sequences in movie history.
Little Shop Of Horrors (1986): Few villains will serenade you with a catchy song and back-up singers while trying to kill you.
The Quest (Jean-Claude Van Damme): A guy from France, trained in Thailand, enters a tournament representing America.
2001 Space Odyssey: It’s a bit slow.
The Chinese Connection: “I have an idea – let’s beat them up.”
The Protector (Tony Jaa) : It’s like that elephant episode of The Simpsons gone out of hand.
Kill Bill Vol.1: It’s like Mortal Kombat on steroids.
Monsters Vs. Aliens: Bob annoys me. He’s presented as not having a brain, but his style of stupidity is more suited to someone who has a brain but puts information together wrong. There’s a difference!
Year One: This would’ve been better if it stayed a ridiculous comedy and didn’t suddenly try to be emotional and serious.
Rocky II: The entire movie felt like a two-hour “re-do” of the previous ending – as if they needed to go back and fix it.
Kung Fu Panda: I was impressed to see such good fight choreography in a cartoon.
Ghost Town: They never explained how the naked guy died.
Bram Stoker’s Dracula: It’s funny watching Keanu Reeves not notice things.
Raging Bull: I’m sure it wasn’t meant as a comedy but these guys are histerical.
Iron Man 2: The best part is Black Widow.
1408: This guy responds to things the way a real person would, which made him a more relatable character.
Pet Sematary: That’s a ridiculously cute kid. Even when he’s not supposed to be cute he’s still ridiculously cute.
The Book of Eli: I think it should’ve ended with The Wanderer by Johnny Cash.
Inception: A lot of potential for interesting and unique action sequences – but the action never quite got to the point of blowing my mind.
The Expendables: That’s an image of Sylvester Stallone that I want to forget very quickly.
MacGruber: Now I’ve got Broken Wings stuck in my head.
The Karate Kid (2010): Jackie Chan beats up a bunch of kids. Fun.
