Planet of the Apes – War something 


Overall score 71%

Guys, I don’t really feel like doing a best/worst things tid bit. Let’s just say Caesar sure came along way in his speech development! I think the development of the entire saga has been really good but this one wasn’t super exciting. The dues ex machine at the end just seemed a little cheesy for my taste. I’m all for sudden resolutions but this one was a bit much. There was a great “good and evil,” theme that wasn’t too cliche, and the movie was well made, it just didn’t have a ton of energy!

Parental Advisory: There is a lot of violence and strong subject matter!

Daisy’s review: I LOVED IT! Actually, I just liked it. (Daisy is my 6 year old daughter that I force to see movies with me)

Spider Man – Homecoming 


Overall score: 76%

Best things: It was pretty dang funny. I think it was really cool how Peter Parker didn’t all the sudden become the perfect crime fighting superhero just cause a spider bite gave him abilities. It was a much more realistic depiction of the high school student who becomes Spider Man.

Worst things: It felt a little long. It was super exciting but it was a fun movie.

Parental advisory: It mentioned the word porn, so if you don’t want your kids to hear that word, then ya. All bad words were strategically cut. There was one part where a guy was completely disintegrated and it was a little shocking. I say take your 13+ year olds.

6 year old review: “I kind of liked it. I hated it.”

Wonder Woman


I’m baaaaaaaack! Gosh I’ve been a super loser about writing reviews. I forgot my wordpress password and I just got super lazy about resetting it! Anyway, review time.

Overall score: 100%

Best things: ok freaking Wonder Woman is my new movie crush. (Sorry Jake Gyllenhal) Her fights scenes were the best I’ve ever seen in my entire life. There was a certain scene, set in a war setting, won’t give away too much, but I might have shed a tear I was so inspired.

Worst things: Well guys, sorry to burst your bubble but Chris Pine is not Captian America and nor will he ever become Captain America. Soo, don’t wait the entire movie for him to turn into Captain America.

There are no parental advisorys on this movie. I took my 6 year old and she now wants to be a crime fighting super hero, so yea. Take your kids.

Demolition

Overall Score: 100%

Best part of the movie: The script was genius, Jake was perfect (I want to be on him), the story was so relatable and real, and there were 0 cliches. Pure perfection. A true testament of great writing and originality. Well done.

Worst part of the movie: Isn’t Jake Gyllenhaal supposed to come out of the screen and stroke my hair or something? That didn’t happen, soooo…. Yea. Pretty sucky.

Have you ever gone through life completely disconnected? It’s almost like you want to care about certain things but you just can’t. Jake Gyllenhaal’s subtle acting perfectly embodied what it is to be numb. When you think the story was going to go one way, comic relief saved it from an overused cliche that often ruins movies. See this. NOW NOW NOW!!

Top 10 Movies of 2015

Well guys, theatrically, it’s been a REALLY cool year. Since nothing really cool happened in life this year, in fact it hasn’t changed in a few years, I decided it would be great to compile a top 10 list for my personal favorite movies in 2015. I was going to do top 5, but then I felt bad leaving some movies out! Enjoy poo heads.

1. 

I was there on the mountain the day I watched this, and it’s an aventure I’ll never forget.

2.  

Nostaligia at its strongest. This was the best Star Wars episode ever made, and captured a story line, emotions, and character developement like I’ve never seen before. I felt the awakening, did you feel it too?

3. 

Staight Outta Compton was full of rich music hisotry that strongly increased my appreciation for what this group did for music, racial awareness, and other social break throughs. I wish I was black

4. 

Artistic, hilarious, shocking, and mentally exhilerating. Quentin Tarantino does it again and exeeds expentations in this movie. The cast and beautiful gore made the movie a peice of art.

5. 

The cinematography in this move was amazing! The energy was constant and exciting.

6. 

Space movies have always been my favorite. The movie sucked me into the journey and I was there with Matt Damon trying to survive!

7. 

Joy is simply inspiring.

8. 
This movie was intense and totally manipulated me in the best way possible. The ending was a total mind effer.
 
9.  

Will Smith made this movie amazing. I was worried it was going to be about football, but luckily it wasn’t. Concussion perfectly captures the passion that one person had for their work and the stupidity of sports.

10. 

What?! A cartoon?! Don’t get your undies in a bunch this movie was more important than you think. Inside Out tenderly explains why it’s important to feel ALL emotions. See it, you’ll see, it’s not just for kids.

Krampus

Krampus-The-Christmas-Devil-movie-poster-2

Overall Score: 89%

Best part of the movie: This strangely has a really great Christmas message!

Worst part of the movie: It was incredibly outlandish, but I supposed this element also made it the best part of the movie…

Don’t let the preview fool you into thinking it’s a frightening Christmas horror film, cause it’s not. It might not be great for small children, but I can see this making its way into a family movie tradition every year. It’s funny and makes you go “what the heck am I watching,” a few times. Seriously go see it!

Ant Man

Unknown-7Overall Score: 85%

Best thing about the movie: Ant Man is hilarious! It oozes witty humor and has the perfect balance between comedy and action. Paul Rudd is a genius and fit the roll perfectly. I especially liked it when they made a real life ant really big. I wish that would happen in real life.

Worst thing about the movie: That the Ant Man suit isn’t real.

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much during a super hero movie. It was not like the Avengers where 4 year olds made the jokes, it was actually funny.
