  • All Is Lost 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 20 Apr, 2014

    This is a powerful film, a testament to Robert Redfords' acting ability to hold the screen when he's doing mind-numbingly boring tasks in solitude in the middle of the ocean. Its 2 hours of a whole not a lot going on, but Redford demonstrates a masters class in acting.

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 06 Apr, 2014

    This really should have been called Marvels Agents of SHIELD - The Movie, starring Captain America. Which is definitely not a bad thing. Without the 40s background cap as a character can kinda be hokey, but they've managed to pull it off with a really nice modern age, albeit heavy handed pervasive surveillance in the name of fighting terror lens. The falcon was surprisingly not hokey, and somehow marvel has managed to make a movie just as good or better than the excellent cap 1, and is arguably one of their best films yet.

    A brilliant film about suddenly having to face life without your life-long partner. Having to come of age, when you're too old to do so, all disguised as an animated movie for children. Don't be fooled.

    There is real genius and foresight in this movie, and its terrifying.
