The movie starts out pretty exciting with an Indian attack, then theres the bear attack then the movie kinda stalls for 90-110 minutes, with loads of speeches and random scenes of talking about death and the harshness of life in the early 1800s, with Hardys actions pitted against DiCaprios constant grunting and foaming at the mouth while hes dragging his injured body around the snow covered wilderness.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens   4/20/16

We had 2 major battles at the end of this film instead of 3 but the choreography, mixed with the way the movie gets you to care, or hate, the characters involved makes the movie stand strong next to the other movies that came before it.

The Martian   3/18/16

We see NASA and its top tier people all clambering for an explanation and trying to keep the media happy and form a rescue plan at the same time, Matt Damon on Mars doing his survival thing, the crew of the ship doing their own thing to figure out how they can help its pieced together nicely, apart from maybe one small cut in time with a generic X Months Later card This makes me wonder if they were running out of things that Damon could do, or if there was a huge chunk of movie that was cut out for timing.

Real Steel   1/22/16

Real Steel is so simple, and yet so already-seen-before in the scripting stakes yet so connective between the viewer and the characters and their story it actually makes the movie so much more than a basic CGI fest or actioner.

Its as though the filmmakers wanted to get straight into the big stuff as quickly as possible, and sadly it destroys any credibility and atmosphere that the movie could have had, and, even sadder is that it destroys what was potentially a pretty atmospheric and spooky movie.

Whats also highly apparent with the movie as it progresses is the change in character that Amelia and Samuel go through.

Jurassic World   10/19/15

This movie is very busy, but in a very good way, with little hints and nods to what weve seen before, original concepts from Crichtons book/s, original concepts of its own, and loads of interesting characters who are actually pretty well written and acted for a movie that was originally called a brainless actioner by some (dumbass) critics.

Warrior   9/21/15

The third act of this movie had my heart pounding and my hands shaking from start to end.

This movie really revolves around characters and acting.

The other part of the movie, well, the main part of the movie, is the human side of it all.
