Oh god that movie was complete and utter garbage. I love bad action movies like a fat kid loves cake, but that was just horrendous. I can't even really tell you why I hated it, because within twenty minutes I was so bored that I stopped even analyzing it. I actually closed my eyes at one point and took a mini nap. The Russian chick was hot though.

That saddens me. I always look forward to the new Die Hard movies. I'm gonna roll with it when it goes dvd.

I'm going to start using a new scoring system. 1-5.



One Point 0

Not a bad little psychological thriller. It kind of reminded me a lot of a more fast paced and glitchy "Pi". Overall it was an okay watch.

2.5/5



Taking Lives

I hated this. I guessed the ending at the beginning. Bad, just bad.

1.5/5



Safety Not Guaranteed

I really enjoyed this one. I like Aubrey Plaza is turning into an indie princess. She's popping up everywhere. The cast was great in this and it was funny while being sincere. It also has just a perfect ending. Check it out.

3.5/5



Big Trouble in Little China

Lol. Carpenter.

1.5/5

Yes...THANK YOU.

I thought I was the only one...it's a classic in my book. It's pure camp and I love it. In fact, all of Carpenter's pre-90's films are great. Not to mention I'm also a Kurt Russell fan. Carpenter does wonders with a minimal budget. Restrict his funds and he works pure magic. That's what made Escape from New York, Halloween, Assault on Precinct 13 etc. such classics...compare that with Escape from LA, Vampires, and Ghosts of Mars. Nuff said.

This movie goes right along with They Live! as two of the best movies the 80's had to offer.

+1 You just can't deny the awesomeness of Big Trouble. I watched it a week back and thought I would be turning it off and I watched it all the way through and still love it. Awesome movie.

Big Trouble is the only Carpenter film besides Escape from LA that I don't like. I can see what he was trying to do but it just came out laughable. The Thing just may be my favorite horror movie. This was just not my style. Hit me wrong I guess.

If you found it laughable then it succeeded. It's supposed to a campy, funny, over-the-top kind of movie.
