Unreviewed Film Bonanza 2015

Believe it or not, I watch more Films than I even Review here.  No, there's LOTS more.

To make up for that, here is a short Summary of Films from 2015 that I watched, but did not Review.  Let's make up for it now in bulk, Costco-style.  Now updated with stuff I've seen since and/or forgotten to cover before (at the top)...

A really fun and raunchy Film.  You could argue that it gives up on being a satire of Romantic Comedies by the end,, I still liked it.  Best John Cena Film for sure.

Poltergeist (2015)
A really by-the-numbers and pointless Remake.  Did they add anything?  No.  Is the CG silly and unnecessary?  Yes.

The Transporter: Refueled
A lot of flash and substance, ultimately meaning nothing.  It sure has alot of flash though, so it can be mindless fun.
Hotel Transylvania 2
A fun Film, but it doesn't feel as good as the Original.  The first one had a less rushed and sensible Story, while this one rushes through like 2 Films worth of stuff to get to a passable one.

It clearly cost alot of money.  It just isn't a very interesting Story and was made with no Market in mind.  Who wanted a Peter Pan Prequel that didn't even set up the dynamic properly again?!?
Ted 2
It is funny.  It was weird to write Kunis out, but otherwise it is really, really good.

Hitman: Agent 47
A better Film than Hitman, but is that the bar?  It is very bleak and mostly flash over substance.  The titular Hero is just not likable or interesting enough to carry this.

Cop Car
Good Film.  Kids in peril totally works here and Bacon is great.  See it.

San Andreas
Disaster Porn at its best and worst.  The Rock is good...but you've seen this 1,000 times already.

Seventh Son
Fantasy that attempts to start something new...while giving you nothing new.  Jeff Bridges one-ups the Tom Hardy 'Bane' voice though, if that helps.

The Divergent Series: Insurgent
I don't know why I do this to myself.  Generic YA Sci-Fi nonsense.  On the plus side, no Maze.

American Ultra
I'm also 'too dumb' to like new ideas apparently.  Nobody in this Film is likable and it is flashy with no pay-off.

Furious 7
I don't know how this made a billion dollars.  Yes, it is over-the-top and stupid with no sense of irony.  The Plot is ridiculous, seemingly written by a group of five-year olds.

Taken 3
Don't be taken with this one.  Not funny?  Oh, well this one isn't good enough for a good pun.

Stupid, gross fun.  I can't help it- I didn't hate this.  Sue me.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2
Just as dumb and gross as anything out there, but it kind of works.  My taste can't be explained, so don't bother trying.

Well, that's it.  I'm done.

Bye now.
