  • American History X 1998

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Apr, 2014

    Dark and disturbing but the relationship between the brothers is so well done...both Edwards deserve praise here. I also loved Ed N's prison buddy. And whoah, I did not see that ending coming until it was too late.

  • The Mission 1986

    ★★½ Watched 14 Apr, 2014

    Lol-ing at this cover, which makes Robert de Niro look like he can't decide whether to be Jesus or a Musketeer (incidentally, I would LOVE to see De Niro as Richelieu, can someone make this happen please).

    Anyway, wow, this was depressing. Even the oboe gets broken.

    Special mention to the stunts ppl though...the beginning alone was worth your paycheque many times over I'm sure.

  • Oblivion 2013

    ★★ Watched 11 Apr, 2013

    "I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?"

    I wanted to be so much more impressed by and engaged with this film than I was. Honestly, rather than gasping at the supposed twists, I was gasping at the sudden and unexpected appearance of Jaime Lannister. That and the blatant Matrix plagiarising. Though the HAL-esque drones were good.

    Also, the ending...WHUT.

  • The Karate Kid 1984
