    Deadpool 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Feb, 2016

    Went in with pretty low expectations as I'm running into some pretty heavy fatigue with superhero movies, but came out pleasantly surprised. Some jokes were lazy but the majority of them had me laughing, and I'm glad it didn't try too too hard to be self-referential and funny. I don't know how good it'll be on multiple viewings, but this was refreshing to see after the repetitive monotony of most other superhero flicks.

    10 Cloverfield Lane 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Mar, 2016

    One of my favourite thrillers that I've seen in a long time, loved the characters, dialogue, pacing and setup. It had me stressed throughout the majority of the movie.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 18 Dec, 2015

    A new Star Wars film with a lot of challenges to overcome: reconnecting with the familiar with a different perspective, but not too different; playing to the fans; but not too much; and creating a fun sci-fi movie; but not being too silly. I thought it nailed all of these. Yes it traced over A New Hope in it's plot points and had fan service, but I believe this is what was needed for this series to be an anchor for the successive movies to branch out and be different. A highly entertaining and fun watch.

    It achieves what it sets out to do. It 's a silly ride that hearkens back to cheesy 80s afterschool made for tv movie that made me smile throughout.
