  • Ant-Man

    Ant-Man 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Jul, 2015

    Another family weekend at the cinema, this one of a different kind. I was in Ottawa with my sister and brother-in-law, helping them move into their new home. After a few days of labour, on Sunday we went to a sushi restaurant, stuffed our faces silly, and then went to a VIP Cineplex theatre to see Ant-Man.

    I knew the VIP cinemas existed but this was my first time. Basically, there is a section of the theatre reserved for adults…

  • From Russia With Love

    From Russia With Love 1963

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 04 Jul, 2015

    Six beautiful women in this film. Six!
    An elongated sequence on a train. Always a great Bond location.
    Istanbul is amazing.
    Kerim Bey is amazing.
    Sean Connery is more comfortable in the role than in ''Dr. No''
    Red Grant is amazing.
    The spy talk is amazing.
    The underground tunnel is amazing
    Blofeld's cat is amazing.
    It's one of the only Bond films that tells a spy-centric story instead of an action-oriented story.

    Letterboxd should make exceptions and allow 6/5 scores for certain favourite movies.

    We specifically went to see it in 2D, for a change. As we are want to do, we arrived a decent amount of time in advance in order to stock up on snacks. The brother tried a different slushy drink this time, a green lime one. 'Food' consisted of a large popcorn and a bag of Skittles (this is apparently…

    Jurassic World 2015

    ★★½ Watched 14 Jun, 2015

    Went with the little brother to see this on IMAX 3D on Sunday afternoon after we shared breakfast (the younger sister was not present this time).

    The reserved seating was nice because we arrived without a lot of time left before the film began. There was a small lineup for our snacks. This time it was only popcorn and slushies sans candy bag. I won't lie: I bought a Fanta flavoured slushy for myself.

    The movie began with a cool…
