The things I do for you guys… I rewatched all 3 of these movies completely to ensure that they were fresh for this review and for the podcast this week (spoiler alert- this is the topic for that).  So… you’re welcome. Anyway, let’s get this over with.  My reviews for some movies that, well, aren’t very good. Also, there may be spoilers.  Just a heads up for those lucky enough to have not seen these movies.

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

This week, we finally get to a movie that I’ve been looking forward to for a while- In the Heart of the Sea.  It looks fantastic and because of it, this week I am looking at the Top 10 Naval Movies.  I’m using a somewhat loose definition of naval in that I am including anything that takes place on water for a significant portion of the movie, and involves some sort of ship.  What movies make the list? Keep reading and find out, then comment at the bottom and let me know what I missed.

DVD movie reviews are occasional posts that review recent DVD releases that I did not review while they were in theaters.

slow west

After having it recommended to me on several occasions, I figured a slow Sunday was a good time to check out Slow West.

Slow West is about a teenage boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who is traveling through the American old west looking for his lost love.  Along the way he meets an outlaw (Michael Fassbender) who serves as a protector for the boy.  They have to fend off all sorts of dangers of the old west, including everything from nature to Native Americans to bounty hunters.

Alright, so this is my first ever review for a trailer.  Will I start doing this more often or is it a one time thing? I have no idea.  What I do know is I had to talk about this trailer because… oh boy. If you haven’t seen the trailer because you desire to see the movie fresh definitely stop reading here because there may be potential spoilers.  You have been warned.  I’ll also include a link to the new trailer below in case you haven’t seen it or want to watch it again.

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

A while back I made a Top 10 Animated Movies list (check it out here), which is actually my most viewed post ever and it’s not even that close.  But after seeing The Good Dinosaur last week, I decided that Pixar deserved its own list.  So after looking at the movies coming out this week and not being able to come up with a suitable topic, I decided this week was perfect to do it.  I’ve rewatched a bunch of these and some have shuffled positions from where they were on the animated movies list.  Without further ado, let’s get to it.

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

In honor of the excellent looking Rocky spin-off, Creed, coming out this week, I’m looking at the best boxing movies.  This list shows that when I do these lists, I try to keep the picks somewhere in between the best overall movies and the ones that entertain me the most.  Because if I just went off my favorites, Rocky IV would be at the top.  And if we are being honest, Rocky IV doesn’t belong at the top of any list.  Well maybe a Top 10 most patriotic movies list.  But not this one.  Does it make it at all? Find out below. Let’s get to it: Ding!

Classic Movie Reviews are occasional posts in which I review a movie from the past. It might have to do with a movie coming out that week or just a personal favorite of mine. These reviews may contain spoilers.

rocky

With Creed coming out this week, I’m looking at the film that started the series.  Normally, when a film that is part of a franchise comes out, I review all of the films from that franchise.  However, giving worthwhile reviews would entail watching Rocky V again, and, well no one wants to watch Rocky V again.  I mean, come on, I reviewed all of the Hunger Games movies last week and there are only but so many bad movies I can stand.  But we aren’t talking about the Hunger Games here. Or Rocky V. Or bad movies for that matter.  So let’s get to the review of arguably the best boxing movie ever.
