  • Godzilla

    Godzilla 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Jun, 2015

    While the previous Godzilla movie sometimes played for laughs, needed an elongated love story and numerous side characters, this movie did things different.

    They went back to the tone of the original fifties and sixties monster movies where Godzilla ... (telling more would be a spoiler)

    Let's just say that the monster gets his well deserved screen time and humans are important to help the story along but they are not the center piece.

    Highly recommended if you enjoy monster movies and Godzilla in particular.

  • Transformers: Age of Extinction

    Transformers: Age of Extinction 2014

    ½ Watched 22 Jun, 2015

    What a piece of crap. Each installment gets worse. Michael Bay should stop directing and just enjoy his money.

    Makes no sense at any moment during the movie. Action scenes are completely over the top and hard to follow. And in the end they save the day during a rather small fight scene ... probably finished the budget early.

    Absolutely needs to be avoided.

    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.

  • Weekend at Bernie's

    Weekend at Bernie's 1989

    ★★★½ Rewatched 25 Feb, 2015

    One of my favorite eighties comedies. Saw it as a teenager and now, more than 20 years later, I still think it's funny.

    Two junior employees stumble upon possible fraud in the books, go to their manager and get invited for the weekend to his beach house. Once there, they find him, Bernie, dead. Fearing for their own lives they decide to act as if Bernie's still alive.

    The scenes where the corpse interacts with party goers, neighbours and random people are both over the top and believable. It's never gross, always funny.
