  • The Book of Life 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Jan, 2015

    Damn this was such a cool movie. I'm a huge sucker for movies that are visual feasts and this was such a gorgeous film to watch I'm super tempted to buy its art book. Everything scene was just so meticulously detailed with some fantastic animation; the opening shot of the Land of Remembrance is especially good.

  • The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 2014

Part of the charm of Thankskilling was how you…

    ★★★★★ Watched 16 May, 2014

    BIG G WENT HARD AS FUCK IN THIS MOVIE GODDAMN! Fuck writing a proper review because I'm still too amped from that mouth to mouth atomic breath scene to give a fuck about criticizing the sorta alright human element of the film. The slow paced suspense was really well done, the story was interesting enough to keep me entertained when Godzilla wasn't in the scene, the special effects were dope, Gareth Edwards clearly gets Godzilla and for that he has…
