  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 22 Nov, 2014

    Like a old Star Trek movie if old Star Trek movies actually knew how to have fun. Great characterization and acting, even with the CG characters. I just wish there was more Thanos. This feels more like just the beginning of a story, even though the final battle did feel quite epic. Can't wait to see the continuation.

  • Hackers 1995

    ★★★★ Rewatched 31 Oct, 2014

  • The Return of the Living Dead 1985

    ★★★★★ Watched 14 May, 2012

    Intense but lighthearted, entertaining, great acting, believable character actions and reactions, great makeup and puppetwork, good stunt work, hot nudity with Linnea Quigley, cute scream queens with Jewel Shepard and Beverly Randolph. Can't believe I didn't watch this before now.
