  • Big Hero 6 2014

    ★★★ Watched 01 Mar, 2015

    I wasn't too terribly impressed with this movie. Sure, Baymax is hilarious and the visuals are phenomenal, I specifically loved how good the shaders looked, but that doesn't make up for what's overall a pretty forgettable movie. The movie plays things so goddamn safe, even by Marvel and Disney standards, that it doesn't really do anything spectacularly new enough for it to stand out among all the other animated films of 2014.

  • Whiplash 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 03 Feb, 2015

    Intense is the word that instantly comes to mind when thinking of Whiplash.

Part of the charm of Thankskilling was how you…

  • Godzilla 2014

    ★★★★★ 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…
