    Gugu Mbatha-Raw: I quite like you.
    Sometimes its nice to see a black man & black woman romance.
    Yeah baby yeah
    I enjoy seeing romance from a minority perspective, like not just black people, but others as well. Okay so I like the white romantic films too, but come on there's enough of that floating around.
    A cautionary tale of fame. A woman that reminds me very much of Rihanna is becoming a victim of her own fame. fame is something…

  • John Wick 2014

    ★★★★ Added

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Fun action flick, that actually builds a nice sandbox for its characters to play in. On one hand its clichéd, but does a better job at setting up its world than most similar films do. Great soundtrack that matches the frenetic goings on.
    A few issues persists, its time to build better bad guys, with better motives. Something to address in the sequel.
    And there's no way he would have let that female assassin live.
    Overall I say don't miss John Wick.

    While watching this I kept thinking
    Had not seen in awhile and was doing a comparison of which is better part 1 or 2.

    The first thing that came as a surprise for me this time was, I spotted an actor and actress that also appeared In Near Dark. I Guess Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron were sharing more than a bed!

    Linda Freaking Hamilton Rocks in here. <---Captain obvious statement.…

  • Argo 2012

    ★★★★½ Added 3

    Really intense film. This is a lesson in how to ramp up the tension that everyone should study.

    Now I have to see more of Ben Afflecks films.

    Besides taking abit to set everything up I can't really find any flaws in this movie. The airport scene was my favorite, especially when the guy is explaining to the soldier what the Argo movie will be about.

    I had been worried about a terrible depiction of the Iranian people in here…
