    The Huntsman Winter's War 2016

    ★★★★ Added

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Amended review. Things I forgot to mention in the original review.
    The scene where the dwarfs argue with their British profanity was actually hilarious to my American ears. Monkey Slag, Pissy wanker. “Wobbly Shite” WOW. If I were dating a British woman I'd just start arguments to hear her call me those things, because it would be so funny. Was the Huntsman not in Love with Snow-White in the first film? Seems he rarely paid her a thought in this…

  • Ex Machina

    Ex Machina 2015

    ★★★ Watched 16 Apr, 2016

    This is usually the type of film I love, but is it just me or was it really missing something. I had a hard time getting into it.There's just a flatness to it, its slow. Doesn't feel like a slow burn, maybe A low fizz. I didn't love the characters outside of liking Ava. The end wasn't a surprise. It kind of did make me recall my favorite Outer Limits Episode with Heather Graham and a world run by robots.
    The robot effect here looked decent, although I thought there'd be more effects. Its not the worst watch, but not something I'd probably watch again.

    While watching this I kept thinking
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    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…
