Below are movies that I consider "MISS", so don't bother!


eddie the eagle

Monday, January 25th, 2016

Eddie the Eagle tells the store of underdog skier, Eddie Edwards, who always dreamed of being an Olympian. The movie is a feel-good comedy, featuring hard-to-replicate facial expressions and a memorable scene delivered by Hugh Jackman. Based on the true story of Eddie the Eagle, you see the perseverance of an individual who doesn’t let Read more…


one day

Saturday, December 5th, 2015

While Anne Hathaway’s British accent greatly improved since her Becoming Jane performance, it’s still laughable in this tragic tale of love. Once you get past it, the movie takes you on a journey of mistimed affairs between two best friends. The intense chemistry is missing between the two, but the longing is a little more Read more…


liberal arts

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Avoid this one if you can. This is a great example of a movie that goes nowhere. In fact, if you have watched How I Met Your Mother, which happens to star Josh Radnor as well, this is Ted Mosby in a nutshell. The story is about a 30-something year old who returns to his Read more…


our brand is crisis

Friday, November 13th, 2015

In this political drama, Sandra Bullock plays a strategist hired to take a Bolivian multi-millionaire to the top of the presidential election. Dirty tricks are played and sly words are exchanged, giving you a look behind the scenes of a political campaign. I’m not the most knowledgeable about politics, so this film did not particularly Read more…


my all american

Thursday, November 5th, 2015

If you are one of those people who do a little research about a movie before watching it, try not to do it for this movie because being able to react to surprise is a part of the experience that will make this enjoyable. The movie is about a real-life star football player, Freddie Steinmark, Read more…


burnt

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

*I watched an early screening of the movie; therefore many things may have been changed in the final release. Capitalizing on the success of celebrity chef shows, this film follows a headstrong chef working towards a third Michelin star for a renowned restaurant in London. Given Gordon Ramsay’s endorsements, it can be assumed that the Read more…


the transporter refueled

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

My sentiments regarding this movie are equal to the disappointment I felt upon learning Jason Statham was not starring in it. This reboot was needless and underwhelming. While it was entertaining for a mid-week, it was because so many things about it were puzzling and lackadaisical. For one thing, how did a bunch of prostitutes Read more…


divergent

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

There seems to be a trend of young adult book adaptations that feature a female protagonist in an unjust society in which they must try to ‘find’ themselves. I would put Divergent on par to the Hunger Games with one exception. The lead. In the Hunger Games movies, Katniss fit the appearance of a girl Read more…


star wars: episode iii – revenge of the sith

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

At last, we encounter Darth Vader, completely consumed by the Dark Side. While the crimes committed by Anakin are still hidden from view, Revenge of the Sith sufficiently presents the chaos of a broken galaxy due to political instabilities and individual greed. Like the second however, it felt like there was more care given to Read more…


avengers: age of ultron

Monday, May 18th, 2015

Where is Marvel going with all these movies? Because, I am starting to feel like they are losing focus. I really expected Age of Ultron to be as great as the first with the curt remarks between characters and the unyielding bond between them as a team. Instead, the comical dialogue exchanges were centered on Read more…
