Another one of those first time films with a little something going for it.
Presents all the important debates of the new media age.
Has a good tea bagging joke. That’s about it.
Not enough memorable action sequences to make up for the contrived storyline.
A Will Ferrell acting serious movie that succeeds.
Puts bold concepts up on the screen and asks audiences to deal with them.
Not as fast and furious as one might hope.
Now this is drama!
It definitely gets to a point where it says something unique, but I can’t say the entire movie does.
Winch is no competition for James Bond but you can see why the French enjoy him.
Looks great, but feels just like all the other historical epic romances.
The story is the perfectly simple thriller in the vein of ‘Saw’.
A documentary that articulates the nuance and grace of MMA.
If you’re ever at ActionFest, and they’re showing Bail Enforcers, and Trish Stratus is there to present the film, I highly recommend you take advantage of that opportunity.
I knew when I saw it this was something special, but it kind of took me two viewings to process it all.
I don’t think it’s great or memorable, but as one of the unorthodox releases this weekend, it may interest some of you.
It’s got all the hallmarks of the series we love to see again and we get to catch up with all the characters, but it feels forced and uninspired.
There’s no ladder twirling, conveyor belt sticking or cashier slot jumping through, but it’s always fun to see Chan move.
The fighting is way more intense and just more entertaining than the original.
An impressive hardcore thriller that definitely stands out from the competition at ActionFest.
Even if this is the final version, it’s still a great highlight reel for newbies and veterans alike.
Focuses on the wave of films set in the Philippines and it’s ultimately the same story as any Roger Corman bio, but it’s a fun highlight reel.
The action is gory and bloody with great kill shots, and Paul Giamatti as the evil King John of England.
You won’t mind watching it because of Brand and Mirren, and Gerwig is sweet, but there’s nothing memorable or hilarious.
Definitely outstanding work for a first feature.
The basic idea of the story is familiar, but I’m always up for another “surviving the wasteland” adventure.
It could be funnier but it’s consistently pleasant.
The action is cool, the characters are memorable and it’s made in a clear, exciting way.
For any viewer fascinated by the storied heroes of modern-day crime sagas, the unique blood-soaked legacy of the House of Borgia is the ultimate incarnation of that mythos.
Never feels like a hot button issue movie, or the even more dreaded “important social” movie. It’s just a moving drama about a world that’s foreign, at least to me, and probably many audiences.
