The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

tarzan7/10

Tarzan had an amazing cast that really brought to life one of the greatest folk tales ever told. I thought some of the story and action sequences were a little over the top, but there was something missing that didn’t make it the summer blockbuster I expected. Don’t get me wrong, Tarzan is still worth watching at the movie theatre.

Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016)

weddingdates1/10

This film could have simply been called: Mike & Dave Need a New Movie. My girlfriend looked at me after and said this movie was as bad as Popstar and I couldn’t agree more. For everyone involved in this project, they just wasted their time and tarnished their resumes with this completely stupid movie. Save your money and plan a real vacation, without Mike & Dave.

The Martian (2015)

martian9/10

The Martian had almost everything you could ever hope for in a movie, action, comedy, drama, and a thrilling story to keep you on the edge of your seat. I know I laughed and cried while watching Matt Damon survive. This was definitely one of my favourite movies of 2016 thanks to some brilliant acting and amazing cast.

Like Crazy (2011)


likecrazy8/10

It is very rare when Hollywood makes a realistic romance movie. The best thing about Like Crazy is the intense chemistry between the two leads. Their love story really draws you and tears you apart when everything goes wrong. This is a unique movie in a genre that is always so predictable. (My favĀ Anton Yelchin role)

Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)

independencedayresurgence8/10

ID II bombed with many people because “it didn’t live up to the first one”, but what I can tell you is this one is far more entertaining, with better effects, bigger explosions, and more of everything you would want in a summer blockbuster. People should be happy with the characters and how seamless everything comes together again.

Ghostbusters (2016)

ghostbusters7/10

I was impressed. There I said it. I figured this movie was gonna bomb and tarnish the legacy of the originals, but much to my surprise these four quirky girls pulled off an entertaining movie. This isn’t the greatest movie ever, yet it wasn’t the worse either. The cameo’s got me excited and the story actually comes together despite terrible CGI ghosts. I assume a sequel is in the works and I will welcome it.

Lights Out (2016)

lightsout5/10

Finally we got a horror movie with a decent story, which naturally meant they cut back on the scares. There wasn’t a moment that made my heart jump, but my girlfriend’s first horror movie will definitely make her think about what is in the darkness. The movie happens over a two-day period, so it rushes to the end and doesn’t allow a whole lot of build up.
