All of this week's new movie reviews

Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

The science-fiction genre of course always has been the one genre that has the most creativity and originality in it. The possibilities with it are endless and especially after the introduction of CGI the sky is no longer the limit. However it's a genre that has been around for over 100 years now and with so many other movies, TV series, comic books and novels around is it still possible to come up with something truly new and creative? After all, basically everything has been done by now, in one way or another and I also can't really say that "Edge of Tomorrow" is a 100% original movie. But does this matter? Absolutely not in this case! Read more>

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5 (2014) (V)

Another .5 movie from the boys of Jackass only with a slight twist to it this time. "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" of course already was different from the usual Jackass craziness but so is this "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5", which feels more like an extra to put on the "Jackpass Presents: Bad Grandpa" DVD instead and that's basically more of a making off than an actual new version of "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa", as its title probably still would suggest to you. Sounds like a disappointing thing but you know what, it's pretty interesting as well as surprisingly fun to watch! Read more>

The Last Light (2014)

Post-apocalyptic movies have been popular for as long as I can remember. Action is the best way to go with these type of movies in my opinion, since most of these movies also often work out as great, spectacular, imaginative and fun to watch but then there also are some movies that are going for a more serious and realistic approach, which is fine, as long as you have a story and characters that all work out as engaging, which is something this movie unfortunately didn't seem to realize.

I'll Follow You Down (2013)

Yay, time-traveling! Only this time it gets handled in a somewhat more dramatic and realistic way, as opposed to bringing you entertainment. Does it work? Both yes and no. Read more>

Trust Me (2013)

Someone is really enjoying his 15-minutes of fame and is making the most of things. Clark Gregg has been an actor since like forever but he usually only played parts in movies in which he was mostly standing in the background and only had like 3 lines. He played a similar type of character in some of the Marvel superhero movies, which made him really popular, which eventually even resulted in him receiving his own television series with "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.". To 'exploit' this success even further and make full use of his recently gained fame, he wrote, directed and starred in this movie, that otherwise no one most likely would even ever have heard off or have any interest in of ever seeing. Don't get me wrong, I like the guy but his popularity of course doesn't make him a great director or writer as well. Read more>

Don Peyote (2014)

Stoner-comedies can always go both ways; they either are absolutely hilarious or totally terrible to watch. This one falls into the latter category unfortunately. Read more>

Willow Creek (2013)

Found footage movies of course aren't rare and while Bigfoot movies are kind of rare-ish, it still doesn't sound like anything too appealing or original; a found footage movie based around the Bigfoot mythology. I therefore also do believe that not a whole lot of people are going to have any interest in seeing this movie, which is a real shame, since it's definitely true that this movie is a more effective and memorable one than just the average genre attempt.
