Breathless' 2017 viewing log
I'll be adding to this every time I see a film that is a first time viewing for me, and I'll likely add a few words too. I didn't think of posting this on here til now so I'll backdate it with the ones I've already seen this year:
Hobo with a Shotgun (2010) - 6/10. Obviously done with the intention of being tongue-in-cheek, but often a bit overindulgent and not really as funny as it's meant to be.
Jason Bourne (2016) - 6/10. A little boring, but this series has never really been for me to start with. Damon is good in it and there were some good action sequences.
Observe and Report (2009) - 8/10. I found it a lot funnier than Paul Blart: Mall Cop, the other mall security guard movie of that year, this one's a lot weirder and darker. I really get a kick out of Ray Liotta's furious rant towards Ronnie Barnhardt in particular, lol.
Superstar (1999) - 5/10. A few moments here and there (Will Ferrell's dance moves are pretty funny), but pretty lame, even for an SNL movie.
I Love You, Man (2009) - 7/10. Not a whole lot to say, but I find Paul Rudd pretty funny and he has good chemistry with Jason Segel here.
Black Christmas (2006) - 5/10. Pretty stupid and relies on gory shock value way too much.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) - 5/10. So obviously I'm not all that into Tolkien/Middle-Earth in the first place if it took me this long to see this, but yea...this was probably the worst of all the live action films, with Return of the King as a close second. I found it really dull and overly reliant on action, although I guess the title implies that to be fair. There's way too many characters and I found it very scattered as well.
End of Days (1999) - 6.5/10. Arnie vs. Satan, what else can I say? At least it's not boring.
The Change-Up (2011) - 6/10. Mildly better than I thought it'd be with a lot of juvenile moments, but with some laughs here and there.
The Legend of Zorro (2006) - 4/10. Failed to meet my already low expectations. The Mask of Zorro is obviously far better.
