  • The Condemned 2: Desert Prey

    The Condemned 2: Desert Prey 2015

    ★★½ Watched 24 Nov, 2015

    While The Condemned 2 takes the basic concept of the first film (people betting on a group of men and who will survive) and mixes it with Hard Target (this time its one against a team!), it's still pretty generic. The writing gives almost nothing for our protagonist and his old team which he has to out smart and out kill and the father/son relationship is sort of stuffed in there.

  • Hellbound: Hellraiser II

    Fincher, you mad genius bastard! Only he could take a film like this and make into a riveting, roller coaster emotional thriller that has even the most intelligent of movie goer leaning whatever which way he wants them to go. It's intoxicating in its subtlety, brimming with impressive performances, and challenging in its delivery. Bravo, good sir.

  • Inside Out

    Inside Out 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Jun, 2015

    Since Pixar decided to completely abandon creativity with their last two films, I was skeptical about Inside Out. However, this is easily one of my favorites that the studio has released and one of their most ambitious, unique, and creative films of their highly regarded catalog. It's both outrageously fun and horrendously sad (a key component to the theme of the film). I'm glad to see the studio producing films like this again. It comes highly recommended.
