I watch bad movies so you can save your money

Aladdin [2019] ★★★

I was 5 years old when my mom took me to see the animated version of “Aladdin” back in 1992. To this day, she still tells the story of how I sat through the whole movie mesmerized by pretty much everything. As the years went by, the movie […]

Brightburn [2019] ★★

Do you ever watch a movie that turns out to be instantly forgettable? Case in point: “Brightburn”, a completely watchable but equally forgettable superhero/horror film from producer James Gunn that never truly reaches its full potential. Damn shame if you ask me, because judging from the trailer, the […]

Wine Country [2019] ★½

What do you get when you bring in Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch and Tina Fey to Netflix? A misfire, apparently. I’ve tried to make my peace with the fact that many talented comedians have jumped on Netflix bandwagon, but it isn’t easy, especially when they keep […]

Long Shot [2019] ★★½

Hollywood has given comedies a black eye these past few years, so it’s always refreshing to encounter one that doesn’t fail to entertain. “Long Shot”, directed by Jonathan Levine (if you’ve never seen his terrific movie “50/50”, do it now) and starring Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron as […]

Dumplin’ [2018] ★★½

You won’t find quotable dialogue here, but if you’re looking for a comedy to keep you entertained for a couple of hours, “Dumplin’” might be the movie for you. Jennifer Aniston plays a former beauty queen who now hosts the yearly Miss Teen Bluebonnet pageant in a small […]

The Curse Of La Llorona [2019] ★★½

Writer/Director/Producer James Wan has provided the raw material for many successful horror movies over the past few years (“Saw”, “Insidious”, “The Conjuring”), and needless to say, he has done a great job at revamping a genre that was slowly suffocating. Even when he wasn’t calling the shots (see […]

All Marvel Movies Ranked

Iron Man 2 [2010] Following the huge success of 2008’s “Iron Man” (which also kicked-off the Marvel Cinematic Universe), I personally had high expectations for this sequel. To say that I was disappointed would truly be an understatement. With half-baked ideas and a villain that didn’t really bring […]

After [2019] ★½

You can see it coming a mile away. Naive young college girl (Josephine Langford) meets and falls in love with a bad boy (Hero Fiennes Tiffin). They embark on a somehow “impossible” relationship (I believe the word I’m really looking for is “toxic” but who am I to […]

The Perfect Date [2019] ★★

I may have tweeted about my hate for Noah Centineo’s Netflix movies (he really is the same character in every film), but if you’re looking for a guilty pleasure that you’ll probably end up forgetting the next day, “The Perfect Date” may well be that movie for you. […]
