Movie Review: The Karate Kid (2010)

Source I remember watching this in theaters when it first came out. I also remember the disappointment I felt after watching it. It's been a while since then, and I thought that time and the fact that it is free would dull the disappointment, but it hasn't. I am still as disappointed as I was... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Exit Strategy (2012)

Source Exit Strategy was a difficult sit because of how hard it tries to be quirky and funny. The problem with this movie is that the actors aren't charismatic enough to make the movie work. The poor script and mediocre acting lead to some very flat performances and a film that is never funny. To make... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Overboard (1987)

Source The plot of the original Overboard makes me uncomfortable because of the unethical misogyny. A man takes in a woman who has lost her memory and tricks her into being the perfect housewife. If you like cheesy 80's comedies and you can overlook this flaw, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have enough charisma and chemistry to... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Once Bitten (1985)

Source I was unimpressed by Once Bitten. This comedy has not aged well. A lot of the jokes no longer land, making this movie feel as eternal as the life of the vampires in it. Once Bitten is an absurd and unstructured comedy that relies heavily on the absurdity of the narrative. You have a matron of vampires who... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Gone Tomorrow (2017)

Gone Tomorrow is the uninteresting thriller you will probably forget watching. While there isn't anything objectively bad about this movie, it doesn't have the presence needed to make it work. It feels like a lesser unintended Taken reboot, but I would much rather be watching Taken. This movie is about a group of stoic brothers who are searching for their... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: The Perfect Guy (2022)

This was a very forgettable romantic comedy that tries a little too hard to be quirky. I couldn't find any information about this movie, even on the lead's (Kate Micucci) IMDb page. This might be an indication that this movie was meant to be buried, but I was the unfortunate soul that unearthed it. If... Continue Reading →

Movie Reviews: Grind (2003)

Source Grind is a pleasantly nostalgic movie about skateboarding. The tricks are sick and story is pretty decent. If you grew up skating in the 90's, you will probably understand more of it than I did. If you didn't, you will still enjoy this fun underdog story. It is a story that has stood the test...
