So, 2018 has come and gone. The Oscars have been announced with some, uh, pretty interesting choices. With that said, 2018 was an interesting year in film. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t any stinkers. Unlike other years I’ve done this, these movies didn’t so much piss me off as annoy or disappoint me. And when you take a look at this list, you can kinda see why. On the plus side, at least I didn’t see 50 Shades Freed, cause I got better things to do in my life than see stupid Twilight fan fiction lazy softcore porn movies, so thankfully I don’t have to put that on the list. And if you like the movies on this list, that’s fine, it’s just my opinion, and we can agree to disagree.
An additional note: this will probably be the last time I do a “worst” list. 2018 was kind of a rough year, and during that time, I wasn’t exactly in a very good headspace. I didn’t even feel like writing this blog for a while, and I needed a break to get some perspective. Taking inspiration from one of my favorite critics, Chris Stuckmann, I’m just gonna stop doing “worst movie” lists and try to focus on the positives. Sure, negativity could get me a lot of attention, and it’s easy to give in to that, so I’m not gonna do it and just try my best to focus on the positive. I’ll still do reviews of bad or disappointing, so there’s that, but they’re not gonna make up a majority of what I write about.
Anyway, here we go: Read More
As much I rail on the bad movies of 2017, there were plenty of good movies too. Some were entertaining and nothing more, some were very outstanding and noteworthy films. Basically, there were A LOT of good movies, so many that I couldn’t keep it down to ten. Hell, I tried to keep it down to 15 and even that wasn’t enough. So, I just expanded it to twenty this time around. Anyway, here it is: Read More
2017 is done and 2018 has already rolled out its early offerings. Granted, the only 2018 movie I’ve seen lately is A Futile and Stupid Gesture (which I will get to and definitely check it out if you have Netflix). So yeah, 2018 looks to be a promising year for film, and these are my top 10 movies that I am excited to see. If you have a movie that’s not on this list that you’re excited to see, let me know in the comments. Anyway, here we go: Read More
With each year I do this, it seems I have to step it up each time. In 2015, I had three terrible movies. In 2016, it was five. In 2017, I did TEN. That’s twice more than I did last time. I almost thought of checking out more that I heard were bad or looked kinda bad, but then I stopped myself and realized “no, no, ten is enough”. Ten awful movies, that for me, range in quality from mildly annoying and boring to laughably bad to just unbearably shitty. Now, I haven’t reviewed all the movies on this list, and I may get to them at some point, but these are the movies I consider to be the worst of 2017. And if you like these movies, that’s fine, this is just my opinion and I’m glad we can have a difference of opinion on them. Anyway, here we go: Read More
Well, it’s that time again. Time for me to do a Top 10 Best Movies list, kinda late in the year again (yeah I know I need to be more timely with these things, sue me). Given how 2016 turned out, it’s just great that there were these amazing films to see that I’m going to talk about. And yes, while I haven’t reviewed all of them yet, this list is comprised of movies I’ve seen in 2016, and of course there will be some pairings like last time. Read More
A lot of people are saying that 2016 was the worst year ever, that it was just a shit year but not THAT bad, or that it just came and went like any other. Honestly, I’m inclined to believe that they all have their points. A bit overblown at times, but fair nonetheless. There was death of a lot of great icons in various fields that were inspirational to many, political upheaval in a buncha different places, and in the case of what I’m writing here, a buncha shit movies. Thankfully, there weren’t that many movies I saw in 2016 that were truly terrible and I’m thankful I missed out on some of them from what I hear, like Nine Lives, Norm of the North, Collateral Beauty, and others, but there were still some I saw that were pretty bad in their own right. Now bear in mind, this is just my opinion here. If you like these movies, that’s fine, but for me, the movies I have here on this list kinda range from “disappointingly average” to “pointless” to “basically shit and shouldn’t exist”. Some of these movies I have done reviews for, and some I haven’t yet, I will get to them at some point, but I want to get this out of the way so I can get to reviewing the 2017 movies I’ve seen and of course other 2016 movies I’ve seen but haven’t reviewed yet, as well as some other stuff. I also decided to extend the number from three to five for this list, because honestly, I don’t think “just three” could do it for me this time. Anyway, here we go:
While it’s yet to be determined when (and also where, though I’m guessing Netflix) the third season of Young Justice will air, I can still make some lists of characters that I think would make good fits for the show and the story possibilities with them. Also, rest in peace Miguel Ferrer, no one could do a better Vandal Savage than you for Young Justice, and whoever takes over the role would have big shoes to fill. So here’s my third list of 5 characters I think would make a good fit for YJ:
2016 has been a monster of a year, what with the election and all (it’s gonna be a LONG four years; also fuck Trump and the Trump police if they try to get me), and of course with movies. For every gem that came out, there were also mixed bags at best and some REALLY bad movies at worst. I’ve yet to finish reviewing movies from 2016 that I’ve seen, there’s still some 2016 movies I’ve yet to see and would like to (and also dreading to see but you know me, I’m kind of a sadomasochist when it comes to this stuff) and to make my top best and worst movies of 2016, but I thought I’d try to get this out of the way in the meantime. So far as I’ve seen, 2017 doesn’t seem to be too bad for movies, and I’m looking forward to more. Now I will admit, I’ve already seen some movies that came out this year (The Lego Batman Movie, Split, Get Out, and John Wick: Chapter Two) so I won’t include them in the list, but I will say that they are definitely awesome and innovative in their own right, and hopefully there will be more awesomeness to come, though there will also be some crap movies coming out too. Also this is just my opinion, so if you have different ideas of movies to look forward to or dreading to see, that’s fine. So here we go:
So yeah, I’m gonna make this a thing like with my Legends of Tomorrow character lists. Honestly, thinking about both of those shows, they are in a way similar to each other, though they do use different methods of storytelling, different formats on which to do them (i.e. YJ is animated and LOT is live-action), and yet they kinda have different yet similar premises to each other, in which both shows are about a wide variety of characters from DC Comics and team up together and go on missions together, difference between em is that YJ is about, as the title suggests, the young characters, while LOT has heroes and villains teaming up together. With both of these shows having these elements, it allows them to incorporate a lot of characters, concepts, and ideas to be put into them, no matter how unlikely or difficult it is, and manages to pull it off well. That being said, there’s still plenty of characters that can be put into the show, regardless of whether they be members of the Team, supporting characters, or antagonists. Here we go: Read More
2015 was a mixed bag of a year for movies, but while there were some bad ones, there were also a bunch of good ones. Now, this list includes movies that I’ve reviewed that came out in 2015, and while I haven’t seen every 2015 film, such as Carol, The Danish Girl, Steve Jobs, Spotlight, Sicario, and others, I did see a lot of notable ones, so many in fact that it was pretty hard to keep the list down to ten movies. Granted, there are some movies paired together on this list, mostly because I couldn’t help but feel certain similarities or how they explore similar ideas in different ways. I apologize that this list came in so late, as well as the reviews for the films themselves, but I’ve finally caught up and can continue on with 2016 films I’ve seen. Read More
