  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Aug, 2014 1

    I want to complain about Guardians of the Galaxy. I want to throw back my head and scream to the heavens about it. I want to grab everyone who has been driven bug shit crazy by it by their button down collars and breath angry demonic smoke in their grinning fanboy faces.

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Jan, 2013 6

    The Good:-

    Mr T has spent his Fistfull of Dollars well. Django Unchained looks fabulous, sounds fantastic and is performed with all the vim and zip you would expect from the Director of Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown. The Script is very good and manages to balance riotous laughs and riotous violence in the way only QT can. There are some great blink and you miss them cameos(now de riguer for a Tarantino movie but still fun). Bruce Dern pops…
