The Lazarus Effect (2015)



Well, predictable has a new face and it’s called The Lazarus Effect. Throughout the movie I was just screaming “surprise me” but I was disappointed. If you’re like me and watched a lot of horror movies then you’ll be disappointed too. The story itself is convoluted, I get what they were trying to do at the end but I doubt your average movie goer gets it, adding to the confusion they bring in a new twist at the end which is uncalled for.

Well, predictable has a new face and it’s called The Lazarus Effect. Throughout the movie I was just screaming “surprise me” but I was disappointed. If you’re like me and watched a lot of horror movies then you’ll be disappointed too. The story itself is convoluted, I get what they were trying to do at the end but I doubt your average movie goer gets it, adding to the confusion they bring in a new twist at the end which is uncalled for. I wish they made the dog the bad guy that would have been awesome.

The DUFF (2015)



Another movie about high school politics, it pretty much follows the standard template; not so popular awkward looking girl wants to be popular, fall in love with the school jock, redefines herself with an ending speech or narration. Only new thing is the introduction of the word DUFF which stands for Designated Ugly Fat Friend.

Still Alice (2014)



This movie is driven by the amazing acting of Julianne Moore. Such a terrific job, the way she delivers every line is awesome, her timing is just fantastic. An amazing story about overcoming grief, supporting family and love, here’s the story; Dr. Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) is a linguistic professor, mother of three and wife to John Howland (Alec Baldwin).

Birdman (2014)



Wow, some amazing actors and some amazing acting. The entire movie is like a venture into the mind of an actor, if you like acting or if you’re an actor you’ll love this movie. There are some things I didn’t like, like the fact that they used a single camera shot or made the whole movie appear to be one consecutive shot, it’s an interesting idea but for me the camera itself can be used to tell a story and that was just taken away in this movie.

McFarland, USA (2015)



So, Disney makes another sports movie inspired by true events, what else is new? Well, it’s pretty much the same as every other stuff they made of this genre, true story, some funny stuff, and the works. What makes this movie different? It concentrates on another minority, Mexican Americans. I’ll admit the movie did show a peek into the Mexican American culture (by which I mean a fraction of an isolated community) but other than that it stuck pretty much to “the formula”.

Seventh Son (2014)



Well it’s different, set in a world where witches and warlocks transform into mythical creatures. Didn’t care much for the protagonist, didn’t know who the protagonist was, from the story it looked like Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) but Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) also had a big role, they were constantly juggling between their stories. Didn’t like Jeff Bridges portrayal of Master Gregory especially when he spoke, there was a lot of lips involved which was kind of weird. Julianne Moore as Mother Malkin didn’t make any sense.

Kingsman The Secret Service (2015)



Your typical “playing it safe” action spy movie. Only downside to the movie apart from being a typical action spy movie is that it was a little longer that what I would have preferred. One of the biggest upsides to the movie is the characters, especially Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson), Harry Hart aka Galahad (Colin Firth) and Gazelle (Sofia Boutella) (the chick with the knives as legs).

Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)



I expected very less from this movie but it surprised me one of the things that stood out was the background music it fit the tone of the movie perfectly. Sure, there were a lot of unwanted sex scenes or to be more accurate, unwanted nudity for the sake of nudity and the whole story can be accurately described as horny college student’s wet dream.

Black Or White (2014)



Well, some scenes of the movie are touching but not as much as you would expect. There are some weird fantasy scenes with Elliot Anderson’s (Kevin Costner) deceased wife which could have been done more tastefully. The final speech that Elliot gives in the custody hearing was brilliant, I’ll give them that, it’s definitely something to see, other than that there’s not much good acting.
