    Avengers 2 Prep - Film One

    Pardon the clunky review for this film. It was one of my first ones and like the suit that gets Tony Stark out of the cave it tends to be a little less than polished.

    Supremacy 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Apr, 2015

    While Supremacy tends to take its home invasion angle in broad strokes, the film does a remarkable job at crafting deep characters that feel real even when some of the decisions they make feel a bit too much like plot progression tactics. It's strange to have the racist villains of the film as the main protagonists, but Deon Taylor makes it work with effective ease and it builds a film that feels far more impactful then it's thriller structure would…

    Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 05 Oct, 2014

    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.

    Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 01 Aug, 2014

    If you thought The Avengers had great banter and chemistry, then Guardians of the Galaxy will make you pee yourself a little. James Gunn goes epic with his space opera in the film, but his roots in genre filmmaking (horror, dark comedy) still freely float through the film. Truthfully, the only thing that was weak was the villain (again). Marvel needs to move away from stoic villains. Otherwise, this film was impressively executed.

    I also think that James Gunn should remake The Ice Pirates. That's my big take away from this film.
