  • Saving Mr. Banks 2013

    ★★½ Watched 10 Jan, 2015

    Rather short and ultimately fails completely. While the Disney versus P.L. Travers storyline has its merits, the flashbacks to her youth are boring and are dragged out.

  • Home Alone 1990

    ★★★★ Rewatched 04 Jan, 2015

    Final day on the christmas holiday and I just had to rewatch this. Pretty great when it came out and is aging rather well. Still overly silly and pretty unbelievable but the John Hughes magic is working over time here.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Sep, 2014

    Funny as hell. Total standalone movie, set in space, with no connections to the previous Marvel movies. Starring a walking tree, a mentally unstable raccoon, some kind of bodybuilder, a green woman and a white male. A difficult task but it works. Can't wait for the crossovers and the sequel.

  • Sucker Punch 2011

    Watched 25 Oct, 2012

    Meh.

    Sure, it's pretty and the fights are over the top, but man, is this boring. Lame story about an orphan going to an orphanage that in her imagination turns into a brothel where she uses her imagination to hatch an escape plan ... man, I'm bored just writing this.
