The Good:

I’m calling the good for the month a tie between Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness. I really enjoyed both movies and this is coming from a Star Wars person. Never watched the TV series or the previous movies and know very little of the background or characters but these were a blast to watch. High hopes for the third movie. 9/10 for both.

The Bad:

God might forgive but I don’t. Nicolas Winding Refn was coming of a smash hit in Drive and dropped a hot artistic deuce on us with Only God Forgives. I loved Drive and it immediately got me on the edge of my seat for whatever Nicolas was making next so this artistic piece was a giant let down. I probably need to give it a second viewing with a more open mindset but I’m good. 4/10

The Old or Surprising:

Thought I would be discussing The Bad News Bears here but instead I’m going to go with something that surprised me, 21 Jump Street. I knew it had a great cast but I remember when they unearthed Starchy and Hutch for a movie and how poorly that went. This wasn’t that at all. This is a very funny movie that hits relentlessly on the comedy. Storyline is weak as expected. Watch it for the jokes and embrace the storyline because it’s the right thing to do. 9/10
