  • Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

    Jack Reacher: Never Go Back 2016

    ★★★ Watched 23 Oct, 2016 1

    It's time to retire the Mardi Gras Chase Sequence from the action movie cliché playbook.

  • War on Everyone

    War on Everyone 2016

    ★★★ Watched 07 Oct, 2016

    Whilst The Nice Guys is a rye-soaked Rockford Files riff, War On Everyone is an over-stylised, faux-nihilistic, not-as-funny-or-clever-as-it-thinks-it-is Streets Of San Francisco.

    Due Date 2010

    ½ Watched 16 Jul, 2012
