FEBRUARY MOVIE RANKINGS:

Another month, another rankings. I haven’t seen too many stinkers this month, as you can tell by the sudden spike in ratings (jumping from 69% to 90%), though I’m not necessarily complaining. I got to reviews some favorites as well as some classics, so that is a pretty solid month of reviewing in my book.

february-1

#3- “True Memoirs of an International Assassin”
69%= Burnt Popcorn
Pros: Good first act in terms of pacing and development, has some funny moments, and the acting is pretty good.
Cons: Almost the entire film is mindless, offering nothing deep to attach to; most of it is jumbled, and by the ending I was face-palming.

#2- “Hacksaw Ridge”
90%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: Brutal, engaging, interesting theme, great cinematography and special effects, and some solid performances.
Cons: Holds the same water most war movies do, making it difficult to set itself completely apart from the rest.

february-2

#2- “Split” (2016)
90%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: Fantastic directing and cinematography, stellar acting, engaging plot, and at times intense.
Cons: Certain plot devices felt coincidental or forced into the plot, and there aren’t as many layers as a truly amazing Shyamalan film would have.

february-3

#1- “The Fall” (2006)
93%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: Beautiful cinematography, interesting concept, dark and deep plot, good acting, and incredibly unique.
Cons: The first act was sluggish and a bit confusing.

february-5

Juicy Hall of Fame Inductee“Psycho” (1960)
96%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: Brilliant direction, great acting, feels like an old film made in modern ways, intense, edgy, and gripping story.
Cons: Some cases of overacting or exaggerated sequences.

february-4

Juicy Hall of Fame Inductee“O Brother, Where Art Thou?”
96%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: Hilarious, an amalgamation of many memorable scenes, great acting, fantastic cinematography and color grading, and great setting.
Cons: The story doesn’t follow a single tangent, but rather is a collection of little adventures (isn’t too bad of a con, considering how hilarious and entertaining each one is).

“The Fall” joins the ranks of candidates competing for the coveted Movie of the Year award, alongside “La La Land” and whatever else the coming months have to offer.
