Dredd (2012) - Action | Crime | Sci-Fi

Dredd (2012) - BAD MOVIE

  I couldn't believe my eyes and ears when watching this one. It just got more and more ridiculous by the minute. The characters are plain and you never really get to feel for any of them and Judge Dread almost feels like a parody. Yes, he is supposed to be cold, almost machine-like, but even the old Robocop made the viewer care for the character, this film does not. Nothing fresh and therefore disappointing.

Hotel Transylvania (2012) - Animation | Comedy | Family

Hotel Transylvania (2012) - GOOD ANIMATION

  Cute animation. Has a couple of great messages - especially one about prejudices. There are some adult jokes, some childish jokes, lots of laugh out loud moments, but most importantly the following messages: Hatred against those we don't know is wrong; Let yourself get to know a person before deciding whether they are good or not; and go along for the ride and let yourself enjoy life.
  I recommend this to anyone who loves the clich├ęs and anyone who can let down their annoying tough "nothing is original" front and just enjoys a good laugh! 

 P.S. Greetings from Dracula's homeland a.k.a Romania! :)

Trouble with the Curve (2012) - Drama

Trouble with the Curve (2012) - GOOD MOVIE

  'Trouble With The Curve' is a wonderful movie. The casting, acting, writing, direction, were all superb. The location scenery was beautiful. Clint Eastwood is at the top of his game, he plays his part effortlessly. This is not a baseball movie, it is a father-daughter movie. It will make you laugh, think and cry. Another Clint Eastwood film that Hollywood can be proud of. Go see it.


A Dark Truth (2012) - Action | Thriller

A Dark Truth (2012) - BAD MOVIE

  A-List Actors in a B-Movie, what a waste of talent. Only explanation they must have lost a bet or something. Don't actors have agents? And shouldn't they protect them from movies like this? There are already too much bad movies out there, there is no need to do more. 

Alex Cross (2012) - Action | Crime | Mystery

Alex Cross (2012) - BAD MOVIE

  The opening scene... where do I start? The cheesiest, tackiest film shots, music, and dialogue I've ever seen in a "serious" film since the 90's. And it continues from there. One particular shot where the "bad guy", Fox, cuts off the fingers of a victim yet there appears to be no blood on the weapon that he is holding in his hands in the same scene. What kind of director misses that?! The acting is atrocious as is the character development. There is no flow in anyway shape or form.
  I can't seem to find anything positive to review about this film so I'll leave it at that. 


Grabbers (2012) - Comedy | Sci-Fi | Thriller

Grabbers (2012) - BAD MOVIE

  This so called movie is nothing short of a huge waste of time. If you are looking for a grown up opinion on whether to watch this movie or not, I'm here to tell you NOT! Here's the bottom line on this horrible attempt of a movie, it's corny, poorly written, poorly acted, the special effects are juvenile and amateur, the storyline is not funny, it's just stupid. Don't bother! 


Liberal Arts (2012) - Comedy | Drama

Liberal Arts (2012) - BAD MOVIE

  'Liberal Arts' comes out of the gate with a funny enough opening scene. Then follows it up with 90 minutes of irritating, contrived garbage. Things happen in the plot, of course - but you won't care. The movie goes through various motions and is surrounded by music and camera moves. But none of it matters a bit, because you won't care about the characters.  Save the time and money. See something else. 

Liz & Dick (2012) - Biography | Drama

Liz & Dick (2012) - BAD MOVIE

  This movie dispels all the mystery and magic around this star-spun couple, here portrayed as rich drunks in a whirlwind of self-absorbed emotion. Not for one minute was Lohan believable in the role as Taylor. This role should have been given to a seasoned actress at least in her 30s. Lohan mostly looked like a little kid playing dress-up with her mother's makeup. And what was with her puffy-looking lips? And her double chin? And the AWFUL hair/wigs? And the fake eyelashes that always looked like they were about to fall off? It's a shame she was cast in this role - they used her for publicity knowing the movie would end up being nothing more than a silly parody.

Pusher (2012) - Crime | Thriller

Pusher (2012) - BAD MOVIE

  I haven't seen the original so I can't compare to it, but the plot is incredibly thin, just an endless chain of events, that follow on from each other with no particular cohesion. An ending that leaves you feeling frankly conned, and some situations that even in the realms of the movie word are unbelievable. The worst part is the complete lack of exploration of the characters and events. Despite the small cast you come out feeling you know very little about the characters, and equally you care very little for any of the characters. There are no real good guys, no bad guys, just a whole bunch of indifference. Don't bother!


That's My Boy (2012) - Comedy

That's My Boy (2012) - WORST MOVIE

  The basic storyline is this Adam Sandler gets his teacher pregnant, now he's mooching off his much more successful son. Done! That's it! No deep storyline, no meaning behind it, just done. Avoid at all costs. 

The Baytown Outlaws (2012) - Action | Comedy | Crime

The Baytown Outlaws (2012) - BAD MOVIE

  Basically the film is made for red neck hicks and is about red neck hicks. The storyline of 3 brothers who kill anyone regardless of who they are for money does not allow the characters to develop in anyway what so ever. The action is average at best and basically goes from one terrible scene to the next. Avoid at all costs. Horrible film with no redeeming qualities at all. 

The Man with the Iron Fists (2012) - Action

The Man with the Iron Fists (2012) - BAD MOVIE

  Most definitely Quentin Tarantino's name has been misrepresented. Please do not watch this movie unless you want to part with 96 minutes of your precious life. There is no storyline or theme. It's not even interesting, just fighting, killing, knifing, blood, and guts. All in all total waste of time.

The Words (2012) - Drama | Romance

The Words (2012) - GOOD MOVIE

  'The Words' is not at all what you think it will be. It's about 3 different stories, about many different things, but I assure you the end will leave you breathless with disbelief. The storyline is fascinating and you never wanted the story to end. The script is engaging and the whole direction of the movie is super. If you are looking for a movie, this is absolutely one that you should see. 


The Details (2011) - Comedy

The Details (2011) - BAD MOVIE

  Don't bother with this movie. The premise was bad. The execution was bad. The acting was overdone and overindulgent. Unless you find coerced adultery with a batsh** crazy woman and murder funny I wouldn't go in to this movie expecting laughs. Do yourself a favor and pass on this truly horrendous movie.
