If this list helped you guide towards some good films then please dont forget to comment and share - http://www.imdb.com/list/ls005521423/
Now most of these movies might be the popular ones but there are those that might not be heard of or very famous titles but better in a lot of ways. Just hit the 'sort by' least number of votes.
P.S. I will keep updating this list as I go by old and new films.
The Condemned 2 (2015)
gave me a headache
The plot does not make sense at all. It almost gave me a headache to try and make sense of the plot while stifling through countless flaws in the movie. The nonsense eventually overpowers the film. The only reason I decide to sit through is for some good ass kicking by Mr.Orton but even that is a disaster. Unnecessary explosions and overhead shots from the drones makes the most of the movie. Felt more like a promotion for drones. If they had stuck to the original plot and made a sequel on just that I believe it would have been much more tolerable. Lionsgate-WWE being such a big production fails to deliver and has been since the past few projects.
Jurassic Prey (2015)
what has happened?!
What director in his right mind would make a film like this?. I was born in the 90's and even the creature features of the 70's were far better than this. Why is it that the quality of B-movies are degrading?. I would like to think of this as a joke played by the director on the audience. All I can say is they are trying to capitalize on the success of Jurassic Park. Thinking, everyone with the word 'Jurassic' in the title would watch it. Do not encourage them. The T-rex is basically a rubber doll. The studio who made this film should be fined. Losing faith in B-movies. Even The Asylum have gotten better!.
Like every other typical creature film the Pod fails in the first 20 minutes itself. Nothing about this movie is a plus. The character of the sister was highly irritating. She kept screaming needlessly. All the film does it move towards a failed suspense towards a creature. preferably an alien who is locked up in the basement. Warned by the lunatic brother talking gibberish all the time. The alien whose presence we witness for about 2 minutes is basically a deforming skeletal body.....so its not really an alien?. AND WE DO NOT SEE ANY SORT OF POD in the movie only a bunch of people screaming their lungs out. I truly wish I had avoided this.
Catching up on the new b-grade spider-creature films? Give this a try!
Now remember guys this movie was made 21 years ago and I'm reviewing this in 2015. I believe the golden age for b-grade low budget creature movies have gone. Now all we are left with are a few gems like this one - 'Ticks'. Take it from the title which is a lot better than 'Spiders' or 'Big ass spider'. Low budget creature films nowadays have ruined the subject matter with muddled script, horrible acting and those cheap cgi effects. Filmmakers nowadays are not even making an effort to come up with at least a decent watch, which is why I urge viewers to stop investing time watching those movies. DO NOT go by the poster, go by the ratings/reviews, not all are fools. Take their advice and give old gems a try.
Ticks being entertaining with a simple script and decent act has had me quiet impressed. Forget the cgi effects, doing it the old way has proved to be better than most.
Filmmakers today should sit at home and study this movie before they step out to make movies not even worth rating.
By the Gun (2014)
Every movie has a message -- none here.
Ben Barnes, Harvey Keitel, Toby Jones is what had me but I say always go by the ratings/reviews. All actors delivered performances, but in what direction exactly was this movie heading into? Filmmakers tried to sugarcoat the film with intense performances but there was absolutely no background to support it hence it falls flat on the subject matter. There is the Godfather series, The Sopranos TV series which makes 'By the Gun' a by-product of poor film making and disappoints you in the subject matter.
Now the most weird thing was, To depict the life of a 'kid' who just got 'made', apparently he dies in the end, which was some kind of twist to make your head spin, and the guy who shoots him, also dies by the hand of the brother of the 'made guy' who had NO role in the movie, no character background, nothing, nada.
Leaves you feeling helpless. It tries to send out a message of friendship but not really, eventually turns out to be a subject of a tragic romance straight from the mafia world. The script shows that the Kid wants to do the right thing but then he doesn't. Why is it so confusing?!
Toby Jones was such a waste here. I hate it when actors like him fall victim to characters with no background, no density. You would realize that all he does in this movie is make a couple of phone calls and supervises a warehouse. He is a 'made guy'.
Not worth your time. Watch the Sopranos again instead.
Die Fighting (2014)
Watch it just for the mixed-martial art, you'll laugh at the rest.
This doesn't need to be one of those movies you will ignore by from the ratings or reviews. There have been plenty worse movies with a better cast and a bigger budget. Even though it's got one of the worst act on screen, the accents hurt your ears and a very very poor script with a faulty twist in the end. Yes, Yes there is plenty to mourn about this movie.
But one thing it serves up is some amazing mixed martial art. Its just a bunch of actors trying to gain more recognition by putting out their talents out there, which is quiet impressive and you almost end up feeling sorry for them. Most of the actors in this movie have played high profile stunt roles in some big movies and this is just their beginner project they have served up for you to give it a chance at the very least.
Except the action the rest of the elements drag you down, but the coordination between the actors is really good. With better direction and a bigger budget this would have definitely been a gem and yes maybe work on their accents a little bit.
Hey don't take my word for it,watch it to judge it but DO NOT EXPECT ANYTHING MORE THAN SOME GOOD MIXED MARTIAL ART, and I mean anything!
Empire State (2013)
Fails to execute true events, mildly entertaining with an interesting cast. C+
Empire State is an action-suspense based on a true story based on a robbery taking place in the late 80's. Even though based on true events it misses out on vital information and ends up being close to an entertainment piece. While the mood of the 1980's starts to set in it also lacks to develop an interest to what is going on. This is the result of slacking production. Do not raise your expectations cos of the cast and budget.
(Michael Angarano) was convincing in his role that though it got a bit loud sometimes. (Liam Hemsowrth) just manages to pull off his and finally (Dwayne Johnson) as a cop with hardly any part. He was just the poster boy and probably did it for the money or out of a favor. (Emma Roberts) has been hardly given any screen time.
Dito Montiel falls off short to keep the events in concurrence to the film. At the end we also see the real (Chris Potamitis) in an interview who says the money stolen disappeared but in the film its been said that it was hidden under a statue, a pointless addition of fiction. Hence concluding without true meaning.
I wouldn't be surprised to why an $11 million movie is being released straight to DVD. People wondering why I couldn't catch this up in the theaters will be thankful later.
*NOTE : $2 million of the loot was recovered
This game is so bad...
I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter franchise, movies and video games. Well, this one is the worst in the whole series. Missing the original cast, a completely different story, with average graphics and the gameplay at its worst. The missions are very very silly. All of it is very dull and not engaging at all. You'll be led to a major disappointment if you try this one out. Better not to waste your time and money. I'm eagerly waiting and hoping for Deathly Hallows Part II (VG) to make a release as it is the final part of the series. It's a request to EA to please give us something worth to play. Rather not produce a game like this at all.
Far Cry (2008)
Why such bad ratings?
Maybe it led people to believe it had something to do with the game franchise, saw it and felt helpless after. But that's not the movie's fault. Even thought the title was poorly chosen it would be wrong to misjudge it for the gaming franchise. Any good action-lover would mark it as a decent watch. It had Til Schweiger and Emmanuelle Vaugier. Also to be mentioned, Craig Fairbass. Udo Kier playing a part in the movie. Follow up his previous films. The movie runs very fast, it doesn't lag. Keeps you engaged and entertained. Why I rated this in its mediocrity is when I saw this had a budget of $30,00,000. It left me shocked with the feeling that it could have done so much better. Where did all that money go? It leaves you wondering and disappointing.
