    Westworld (1973)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070909/

    I am sure this movie was way ahead of the times 43 years ago but now it just seems dated plus the Westword TV series kind of spoiled me.

    4/5

    Futureworld (1976)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074559/

    Why was this film even made?

    Oh! To capitalize on the success of Westworld and make money off it.

    They even brought back Yul Brynner and he doesn't do anything in this movie but walk around.

    Then there's Blythe Danner.

    She just looks very plain Jane to me and her acting wasn't any good.

    This is the first time I've seen her in anything.

    Looking at her long filmography listing and I really don't see anything else she has been in that I've seen.

    She was later in the Meet the Parents series but I have never seen those films.

    This sequel was awful!

    2/5

    Knight And Day (2010)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1013743/

    So what was wrong with this movie? Why was it panned by critics and the audiences?

    It has hot Cameron Diaz in a bikini...



    ...and YES! I know! I can't stand Tom Cruise but for once he is toned down and non annoying.

    Oh did I mention it has Cameron Diaz in a bikini?



    4/5

    Jack Reacher (2012)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0790724/

    This is a strange movie that suffers from an identity crisis.

    I had to force myself to watch it from beginning to end.

    Not sure if the sequel will be as bad as this one or better.

    2/5

    Sully (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3263904/

    Good job by Director Eastwood and by Hanks but in my opinion is not deep enough to be Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor Academy Awards worthy.

    This movie could had premiered straight to Cable TV and you wouldn't know think it was a theatrical release.

    4/5

    Få Meg På, For Faen aka Turn Me On, Dammit! (2011)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1650407/





    A great movie from Scandinavia.

    There has been several great movies and TV series made in Scandinavia in the past many years that are either over-looked or copied by Hollywood.

    This film reminds me of "Hip Hip Hora! aka The Ketchup Effect" from 2004, another great coming of age film from Sweden and Finland.

    4.5/5

    Lights Out (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4786282

    Good PG-13 horror film, better than some of the other recent PG-13 horror films lately

    BUT

    it could had used another act.

    The ending was too sudden and unsatisfactory, as if the writers build you up for 1 hour and 10 min and then didn't know where to take the movie next for the final act.

    3.5/5

    Don't Breathe (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4160708/

    Three young people decides to burglarize the home of a blind veteran who supposedly has $300,000 stashed away in his house.

    The money is the court settlement from when his daughter was killed in an auto accident.

    Piece of cake job, right? Wrong!

    Good premise but the story itself and the way it's executed is so flawed and full of holes. Even if you do suspend disbelief, you still can't believe how ridiculous some of the stuff you see in the movie are.

    I wanted to yell out at the movie characters so many times that I stop keeping count after a dozen times.

    I don't know who are these folks on the movie posters giving this movie high rating and BEST something.





    Whoever they are, they must be brainless idiots who are very easily pleased!

    I can only give this film a:

    1.5/5

    Inferno (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3062096/

    3rd film adaptation of Dan Brown's Robert Langdon book series and this one, as the previous 2 films, is also directed by Ron Howard.

    Ron Howard is a great actor and a great director of comedy and light hearted movies but when it comes to directing deep visceral tension filled thrillers adapted from books with complex storylines and multiple plots and subplots like the Dan Brown's Robert Langdon series, he fails miserably on all levels just like he did previously with The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons.

    I will have to give this the same rating I gave the previous 2 Robert Langdon films:

    1/5

    In March 2007, this was my review of The Da Vinci Code:

    Sterile acting by everyone and Let's Play It Safe Cause We Don't Want To Offend Any Christians Directing by Ron Howard

    I hope Ron is not directing the next one and Tom won't be in it!!
    In May 2009, this was my review of Angels and Demons:

    they insulted the book again just like they did with The Da Vinci Code

    Once again Ron Howard is not the right director for this genre and Tom Hanks is not Robert Langdon

    just because Da Vinci Code made a lot of $$$; it doesn't equal quality

    Nerve (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3531824/

    I turned this off after less than 15 minutes.

    That is how bad (and absurd) it is!

    Since I didn't watch the entire movie, I can only rate it 0/5

    The Accountant (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2140479/

    Brilliant! Absolutely Brilliant!!

    Best film I've see (so far) in 2016.

    It's also very moving with a human compassion angle.

    The last scenes of the last act made me cry a bit.

    If they want to turn this into a sequel franchise, I will take it.

    5/5 or 10/10

    The Magnificent Seven (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2404435/

    Good final shootout sequence but that's it. It lacks the heart and human depth of the original.

    The end was predictable. I saw it coming from 15 min away.

    The only empowered woman in the entire town saves the main hero's life and kills the main bad guy.

    2/5

    The 1960 film spawned 3 sequels.

    Got to keep that left wing liberal political correctness going!

    I am watching this. I've seen this movie over half a dozen times, twice of those times in the theater in 3D and in 3D IMAX, and I love it; but I don't understand the point of re-releasing it in B&W except to make more money!



    Here's my original review:

    http://www.movie-list.com/forum/show...743#post234743

    Where's the sequel? I want the sequel! Damn IT! Bring on the sequel!!

    Too many movies lately that are good and then the sequels are slow slow coming and the yucky junk movies get a sequel every year!

    Which reminds me:

    Whatever happened to the sequels to SALT and to AVATAR?

    Happy Holidays!!

    Call Of Heroes (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5842624/

    By the numbers formulaic martial arts movie with guns!!

    A bit too much time spent on several scenes lecturing about honor and duty and right and wrong and loyalty, etc, etc and lots of kneeling scenes, lots of kneeling!

    3/5
