    Gone Girl: 8/10. Went in blind and didn't expect anything, had never read the book and stayed clear of spoilers. Can't really talk about the movie without spoiling it but I adore it in every way.

    Nightmare on Elm Street (Original): 6/10. Was not afraid of it when I first saw it in the 90's, still not afraid. Never been one to enjoy meaningless killing of characters and the ending is just as cringeworthy now as I thought it was back then. It doesn't frighten me one bit. Gonna watch Hellraiser (first one) and hoping that one will scare me but I doubt it. I'm just humoring my sisters and their love for outdated movies at this point.

    Mad Max: Fury Road: 7.5/10. Loved the craziness, the guitar, drums, music and action but the story could have been a bit more fleshed out. I wanted to know more about the societies. I refuse to watch the originals (Mel Gibson can go die in a fire kthx) so am hoping that the sequel to Fury Road will bring more story. Pleasantly surprised with the movie, thought I'd hate it.

    Movie I am looking forward to the most right now: Legend with Tom Hardy. Oh, and The Gift!!!

    Ex Machina (2015): 8/10 the movie is overall good, but after seen so many others from the same genre (ghost in the shell, i robot, I.A.), i've felt it didn't provide too much new content, so i was a bit dissapointed on that, maybe i was expecting too much from it, but besides that, the movie is interesting to see if you're into artificial intelligence/robots/computers/existencial-consciuosness theories

    Chappie: 2/10 you reaaally need to suspend your disbelief to consider keep watching the movie, too many things are off the hook, for example: the guy gets kidnapped, how can they let him go away? and then he comes back?? really??, also hugh jackman being one of the worst villains i've seen.

    Napoleon Dynamite... Yea I know, I've been in a coma for the last 10 years... okay?

    9/10 for being completely fresh. There's no real story to it and an intentional lack of popular culture references which definitely adds a charm to it. I didn't find it sidesplittingly funny, I just found the characters very enjoyable to watch. The end scene is very out of place and a fantastic surprise that made me rewind it instantly just to watch it again.

    Absolutely a must watch for anyone.

    Straight Outta Compton: 9/10. It was everything I was expecting and more. The acting was fantastic, but the pacing did feel a little weird, especially towards the end.

    Mad Max Fury Road.

    A story so deep it could fit on a candy wrapping, and as believable as a Ghost Hunters episode. A world that makes about as much sense as what my 10 year old niece could write. Character's development about as convincing as Steven Seagal's acting.

    But that's not what the movie is about. It's about showing big trucks and flamethrowers and bombs and shootings and booms and crazy people being crazy.

    And it definitely delivers on that 2nd part. 7/10.

    (And still a better love story than Twilight too)
    Oh, hi.

    Just saw Terminator Genesys.

    If you've seen the other movies, then this is like an 8/10. The action is there but the setting isn't as retarded as the other movies, so it's not as depressing. Plot is okay. I mean, doesn't really make sense why the timeline changed this time...it can't be that every time Kyle Reese goes back this happens...I guess if they explain shit in sequels it may be okay but currently it's unbelievable. It's actually rather refreshing, plot-wise, too.

    If you haven't seen the other movies then the intro/setting isn't really enough to make you feel why the cause is so important and some of the humor is probably lost on you. This isn't REALLY a sequel so I'm not gonna blame newer people watching this and not the rest of the franchise. As such, it's maybe a 4/10 if you're new to Terminator. Not a bad action flick but if you're not into the universe then you lose appreciation.

    Oh yeah, by the way. My one major problem with the movie is that Sarah Connor was really fucking annoying. You'd think after being portrayed as the tough independent great women she was and raised John to be, especially after her childhood in the movie, she wouldn't be so dense or whiny. I can see why the character has motivations like that but it just comes off as bothersome. Maybe it's the actor.

    Avengers 2 - 6/10

    Such a let down compared to the first one. It's just so boring. They should of axed Hawkeye (dreadful character) and cut out about an hour of padding. I also can't stand the "must save this bus / car / elevator load of people" thing they do during fight scenes, and when they focus in on a random child that needs saving, it's so cliche.

    Considering that her character in Game of Thrones is also an independent strong woman (or so she and everyone around her says) while there always is this atmosphere of whiny and obliviousness around her, I'm going to go ahead and say it's the actor.

    Her storyline is one of the least interesting overall because nothing happens.

    Things does happen, just not the one thing you want.

    Predestination (2014) - 7/10
    Well... it's... good, but... pretty crazy, timey-wimey and it's hard to know how everything ties together. It's interesting, but is clearly based on a short story, and it seems like it was written by someone who thought "well, wouldn't that be some effed up time travel plot?"

    I can tell you what it wasn't. It wasn't the Fantastic F*cking Four!

    It was, however, the latest Mission Impossible. A little over the top, but what fifth movie in the series wouldn't be at this point? And they did seem to try to recapture some of the magic of the first film, except the part where the first film gave away the ending in the goddam trailer! But I digress. Good movie, fun, 8/10 easy.

    Seventh Son 6/10 Storyline was pretty good, the characters were awesome, landscape was beautiful and well shot, but the fight scenes were pretty awful. I hate movies where the fight scenes last like 10 seconds. They could have done so much more with the bad guys.

    Hitman: Agent 47: 5 ~ 10 Not good. Not terrible. Mostly just... dumb. Friend looked the part and was decent, but he and Ware lacked the chemistry of Olyphant and Kurylenko from the first film. Their interactions were pretty bland. The action was done a little bit better than last time, though. Genetic precog Ware and subdermal titanium Quinto - Wolverine armor bullshit was kind of dumb. Attack of the clone ending was kind of dumb. Mid-credits Spock lives stinger was kind of dumb. Watch it when it's on cable and you're too hungover to reach the remote.

    San Andreas: 8/10 so cheesy, but entertaining.
