Movies I've Seen 3 - Summer 2016 Edition

About 6 months worth of movies i've checked out. I've shared my brief thoughts for each below.
1Krampus
Survival of the Fittest


Krampus 8/10 - A surprisingly entertaining creature feature with some great practical effects. The design aspects of the monster was very neat, unlike most movies of this type. The Christmas setting is cheesy, but never so much that it detracts from the film itself. If you're in the mood for a holiday horror film with some personality, give this one a go.
2John Williams
Star Wars: The Force Awakens


Star Wars Ep VII - 9/10 It's ANH again. And I couldn't be happier. Honestly, while not a perfect film, Abrams and co. delivered exactly what most Star Wars fans needed: a return to what makes Star Wars special in the first place. What will really sell these movies for me going forward willl be just how the narrative deviates from here on. For now, consider me on board for wherever the falcon takes us next.
3The Martian
LBH - 6251876: A Red Planet Compilation


The Martian 7/10 - While I like the idea of a "hard science" survival story in space, this film was a little lacking in both tension and personality.
4Creed
Weathered


Creed 8/10 - Creed succeeds as both a sequel to the Rocky movies AND as it's own thing. Michael B Jordan's best yet. I'd recommend this movie to just about anybody.
5Ennio Morricone
The Hateful Eight


The Hateful 8 8/10 - Another great Tarantino western. Lot's of great acting and suspenseful storytelling.
6Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto
The Revenant (soundtrack)


The Revenant 8/10 - An engrossing survival narrative/revenge film that is great on visuals but somewhat lacking on depth or originality. I'd recommend it as a one time viewing.
7Black Sabbath
The End


The End of the Tour 9/10 - A five day Rolling Stone interview with David Foster Wallace (played by Jason Siegel) from a journalist played by Jesse Eisenberg. Probably the most emotionally powerful film i've seen in awhile and definitely one of the best on this list.
8James
The Night Before


The Night Before 6/10 - One of the lesser funny more recent Seth Rogen movies set at Christmas time. All the funny shit was in the trailer. Meh.
9Space Frog
Welcome All Species


Space Cop 8/10 - RLM's long awaited '80s tribute film about a cop from the future...the future of space...outer space. If you're a fan of these guys you'll find lots of laughs here.
10Wolves in the Throne Room
Celestial Lineage


Room 9/10 - Brie Larson's best work.
11Soundtrack (Film)
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1


Mockingjay Pt. 2 6/10 - Meh ending to a pretty meh series of movies.
12Criminal
Sicario


Sicario 6/10 - The best thing I can say about Sicario is that it had great atmosphere. Story-wise, there wasn't much here for me to grab on to but I DO want to check out this dude's other movies: Prisonesr and Enemy.
13Junkie XL
Deadpool


Deadpool 7/10 - It was a good Deadpool movie. Nuff said.
14Pearl Jam
Ten


10 Cloverfield Ln 8/10 - Great, suspenseful story with a great performance by John Goodman.
15The Civil Wars
The Civil Wars


Cap America Civil War 9/10 - One of the better Marvel movies. Very entertaining popcorn flick.
16John Ottman
X-Men: Apocalypse


X-Men Apocalypse 5/10 - Pretty boring. Another big powerful bad guy that everybody has to punch at the end.
17Skeletonwitch
Worship the Witch


The Witch 8/10 - A really great period piece about a colonial family who has to contend with supernatural forces.
18Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice


Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice 4/10 - Bad movie. Best Batman ever tho.
19Joe Hisaishi
Spirited Away


Spirited Away 8/10 - Another great Miyazaki film. Didnt enjoy quite as much as Princess Mononoke but still very good.
