A Hijacking


Not as "riveting" and "tense" as the poster might suggest, but still pretty smart and harrowing. It focuses a lot on the negotiation side of things with the pirates and the company that owns the ship and employs the men. Well-made overall.

7.5/10

Zero Charisma


About a role-playing(like Dungeons and Dragons and shit) super nerd and his friends who sit around a table and craft all these magical quests with battles between trolls and wizards and whatnot. The main character eventually has his crazy ego threatened by the new guy to the team and turns into and obnoxiously loud, insecure, manipulative sociopath. It's meant to be a comedy but that guy's rants eventually began to annoy the hell out of me. It's still a really unique flick though. Entertaining enough.

5.5/10

Not sure why, but the first things that came to mind were Four Lions and A Fish Called Wanda.

Buried. 9/10

I gotta say. This movie sounded interesting to me because I've always liked thrillers. But I had no idea the whole movie literally is shot inside the coffin he's in. But dam...... I never expected a movie with just 1 character in a container the whole movie, with no action, to be such a thrill ride. This movie really got me.

The Village


One of the most underrated films of the 21st century. M. Night Shamalan's last good movie. His career is a running joke now.

Based on your ratings, I'll probably go see Prisoners soon.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower 9/10

It genius... taking every late 80's/early/mid 90's boys crush (Hermione), and making her some kids crush in a movie.

^^^^I literally just watched that before I went to bed last night.


It's a good movie. Sometimes I felt the script was trying too hard. The characters (minus Charlie) got on my nerves at times. I never knew students in the 90s acted like 2010s hipsters in high school. I think besides the music, the 90s weren't really represented that well.

I liked the movie, the themes of mental illness and teenage loneliness were depicted well but some of the dialogue was overbearingly annoying because people didn't really adopt some of the qualities they displayed until a decade later. Seemed like the film wanted to pander to today's progressive, artistic, intellectual crowd a little too blatantly. Overall, it's good work that has important things to say

PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER- 7/10

I've been trying to see Perks for a year now. It was one of those limited release movies tried to go see but just never made it. Not streaming on Netflix, and just the other night I noticed it was on Showtime, but it had already started. So I looked for it On Demand, and my Showtime OD didn't have it, which shocked me. I guess I'll have to find a time slot to record it.

Yea I mean for me the only thing that really gave away that it was a 90's movie was the cassette tapes.

As for the movie itself, it hit me pretty hard because I really just went through that phase of my life of feeling really alone and experimentation. I think back to high school and now I can recognize kids who were going through the same thing... kids I thought were weird. Really, I just didn't have a clue. I can totally imagine myself being that kid too just really falling for a girl but not having the courage to really say anything and letting some other guy have her... kinda just hoping one day she will fall for me like I fell for her. I have also never really liked to be touched, although for me it's from arousal embarrassment. I get hard like instantaneously if I am touched or even around girls and I am getting the signals that they are opening up. For some reason I felt shameful about it. Now I am like jeez what a gift... no limp d*** here lmao. Even if I am drunk off my ass it doesn't even matter. The older you get, the more you just accept who you are and if people can't understand then so be it.
