THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

Profoundly disappointing. It remains faithful to the style and tone of the original, but its story is completely uninteresting and second-rate. Despite the tremendous advancement in digital filmmaking technology in the nine years between films, Rodriguez does nothing new to advance the style or uniqueness of the world of Sin City. 225 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Life of Crime (2013)

Enjoyable, but average. It’s a solid adaptation of another Elmore Leonard story (which very much feels like a companion piece to Jackie Brown), but it’s fairly straightforward and predictable in its structure and execution. 88 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Maps to the Stars (2014)

Started off decently enough, but quickly developed into some sort of bizarre, nonsensical piece of garbage. To start off, every single character is despicable in this film, with absolutely no redeeming qualities that would make us care about them even in the absolute slightest. 118 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: The Purge Anarchy (2014)

Once again, just like the first film, this is a very cool concept that isn’t utilized to its fullest potential at all. It helps that the sequel opens up the world a bit, but it does little to provide any insightful commentary towards this new kind of political structure. 108 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

WHOA THERE. MORE DRAGONS AND SHIT? MORE DRAGONS THAT ACT LIKE CATDOGS? AND FEELS?!?!?! AND NO TERRIBLE MUSICAL NUMBERS AGAIN?!?!?!?!?! This was even better than the first film, combining that magnificent flying magic with an actual story with three-dimensional characters AND MOMENTS OF FEELS. 26 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: How to Train Your Dragon (2010)

WHOA THERE. Dragons and shit. Dragons that look like cats and act like CatDogs? Epic. Delightful throughout. The flying scenes were pretty amazing, and probably even more amazing in 3D. 41 more words
