The Deer Hunter (1978)

Robert De Niro - Christopher Walken - John Savage

I'd give it an eight out of ten, I really enjoyed it. The characters felt very real, you worry when you think something is going to happen to one of them, and the experience benefits from that. I've seen reviews that shame a pro American point of view in Vietnam, though I don't feel the same way. What happens in the movie happened in Vietnam, the fact that it centers around the characters and not the suffering outside of the characters sphere of influence should not detract from it's rating.

Mockingjay pt.1

3/10. Nothing like the trailers. They couldn't even get a cliffhanger right on this one.

Gone Girl 8/10 - It kept me interested until the end but I didn't love the ending.

The Equalizer (2014)

I'd give it a solid 7/10

It's one of those movies where the story is "good enough", it has it's cliche moments, enjoyable overall.

The Man From Nowhere.

The dramatic parts were a bit overdramatic for me. That includes the core crime. It could've been any other crime actually, but the one used seemed forced for shock value. Otherwise, the overall story is quite similar to The Professional, just in Korean. Action choreography was top notch though- similar feel to The Raid, but less pretty martial arts and more just "bone-breaking" here.

And another thing- why are all "second-in-command BAD guys" in Asian movies always foreign nationals? lol

7/10

The Intouchables 10/10 - Probably one of the best movies I've ever seen. Someone recommended it a few pages back so I decided to check it out. Amazing writing, beautiful character dynamic, tons of emotions were felt throughout the movie. I hate subtitles with a passion but it didn't bother me in the slightest.

Enemy 2/10 - Weird, slow, weird

Guardians of the Galaxy 8/10 - Fun, exciting, cool visuals, funny characters. Overall enjoyable

I usually enjoy war movies, especially when they are set in the WW2 era. However, the plot in Fury was quite weak, and there were no moments in the movie that really "wowed" me. The final fight scene was disappointing and unrealistic in my opinion. It is still a movie that I would recommend, but it does not live up to it's hype.

Lucy reminded me of the movie Limitless, which is why I probably gave it a slightly higher rating. I liked the concept that they were trying to introduce in the movie. While the first half was pretty good, I will admit the last half of the movie was disappointing.

I suppose everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

However, Lucy has got to be one of the worst movies I have ever watched. I agree the beginning held promise but holy crap did that go downhill in hurry.

The Equalizer 7/10 as well

Typical good guy sees something they don't like and decides to take matters into his own hands and dish it out to the bad guys. With that said, action was decent, pace was good, and I enjoyed it. Movie isn't going to wow anyone but it's a decent 2hrs.

The Hobbit - Battle of the Five Armies 8.5/10

The battles were done extremely well and it was just an enjoyable movie overall. Can't believe the saga has finally ended.

The final parts of the movie hit me right in the feels.
