I’ve always felt that movies are a form of escapism wherein you can flee your current life and surround yourself with interesting characters and unique locals. I enjoy watching all kinds of movies and choose not to be picky. I watch big-budget superhero, horror, indie, animated family films, B quality, or even the occasional rom-com. I watch it all because I truly respect the art and know that there were lots of people that put their hearts and souls into the product.

However, sometimes a film, no matter how much love is involved, fails to meet expectations. That’s where I jump in and break down “The Good,” “The Ehh” and “The Ugh-ly.” My purpose is to try to determine how the film succeeded and how it could have been better. I believe that this process can elevate the film industry and make the film going experience better for all.
