  • Jane Got a Gun

    Jane Got a Gun 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Aug, 2016

    If you understand the western film genre you know environment, costumes etc play a part. This is not the best western out there, but its authentic and enjoyable enough western to quench the thirst. All actors along with Portman are decent. The film very much looks the part, could there have been a little more action. could it have been a little deeper, yeah, but its still very watchable.

  • Furious Love

    Furious Love 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Aug, 2016

    This review contains a twist at the end. I didn't expect this to be a documentary about demon possession. The interesting thing is the contrast between the western world and what is going on elsewhere. Here everything is dismissed as mental illness, but elsewhere in the world there is an accepted spiritual war going on. The twist is even though the documentary takes us to dark places, its all about the love of God, hence the title and it points a bit of a finger at the church for forgetting Jesus's core message. Which is Love by which all people are transformed.

    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…
