  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Apr, 2015 1

    Since The Avengers first collaborative effort in 2012, Marvel began phase two of their cinematic universe with sequels Iron Man 3, Thor 2: The Dark World, and Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier, as well as expanding into the universe further with the introduction of the Guardians of The Galaxy. After seeing all of the Avengers together for the first time, it was great to go back to the individual characters and also to meet some new ones. But three…

    First of all, I like Kubrick's films, love some of them in fact, but I can't even pretend to like this one.

    Sucker Punch 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Apr, 2013 51

    I was told beforehand that this was a love it or hate it film, and that there was no in between. Well I don't agree with any of the negative reviews, so it turns out that I'm one of the few that love it.

    Firstly, I don't know why everybody is going on about the huge emphasis on rape for. There is a focus, yes, but nothing is ever shown, if it even happens at all, as it is all…
