  • The Drop

    The Drop 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Jan, 2016

    Good, sadly not great.

    As the first American feature from Belgian director Roskam (of Bullhead / Rundskop fame), with his usual star Matthias Schoenaerts supporting a fantastically understated Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini in his final role, I expected more from this Denis Lehane penned crime drama.

    All those names, the combination should sparkle, the screen should explode with menacing power and knock you off your feet.

    But that's just not what this movie wants to be. It wants to…

    Each instalment is dumber than the previous one. Makes me wonder who stupid the next one will be.

    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.

    And then there's number three. Upping the budget once more. Adding a famous singer (Tina Turner) and a soundtrack (We don't need another hero) and a bunch of kids in need of salvation ...

    Way to jump the shark there buddy.

    Oh yeah, there's yet again a flight scene with a big vehicle (no tanker truck but a train) that doesn't end well.

    Honestly, I can't remember why I thought I liked it as a kid.
