  • The Hangover Part III 2013

    ★★ Watched 28 Mar, 2014

    The Hangover was one of those fun little comedies that really didn't need a sequel. It set out and accomplished exactly what it needed to do and ended perfectly. Of course money talks which means a sequel was set in motion and we got what was basically The Hangover: Bangkok Edition XXX.

Part of the charm of Thankskilling was how you…

    ★★★★½ Watched 16 Apr, 2013

    Everything about this movie from the mind blowing special effects to the directing was simply amazing and one of the most visually arresting films I've seen recently. It's really a damn damn Rhythm and Hues got shut down because the amount of work it probably took to get Richard Parker to animate and look right must have been insane. I knew the tiger was CGI throughout the entire film but I was still sitting there doubting the facts because the…
