    Kingsman: The Secret Service 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Jul, 2015

    Kick-Ass turns into James Bond
    This was immensely better than I thought it was going to be. Matthew Vaughn really knows how to inject comedy at just the right times that keeps the action going as well.

    This reminded me of a toned down version of God Bless America.

    Them 2006

    ★★ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    Nothing new or outstanding in this horror/slasher flick. The lighting was terrible and the couple made entirely too much sound for people trying to hide. We also never find out any motivation or back-story of the killers, making the film pointless. It was good for a mindless watch, but don't expect too much from it.

    ★★½ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    This was like an extended episode of Outer Limits. That describes the feel and the depth of the storyline. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't good enough to be a full length film. Also speaking of Outer Limits, I just watched an episode last night with Johnathan Schaech and wondered whatever happened to him. Lo and behold he shows up in this movie the very next day.
    At least Thomas Jane seemed like he was having a lot of fun…

    This wasn't bad for a Lifetime movie. They're always great to turn off your brain and have on in the background.

    ★★★ Watched 05 Jul, 2015

    Well this was much better than I expected it to be. With the cast, I figured it would just be another chick flick, but it surprised me and really captured my attention the entire film. That's not to say the usual chick flick things weren't here, but they were accompanied by a real story and real characters which generally isn't the case.
    I'm not a big fan of Keira Knightley, but she was good here and her demeanor fit the…

    Righteous Kill 2008

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Jun, 2015 2

    Al Pacino not once made a long winded speech at the top of his lungs, nor did Robert DeNiro make hamfisted jokes with a funny face. This alone made me remember "the good ole days" and made the movie worth it to me, it was just disappointing that they weren't given more to work with. I can't help but feel that in a better writer/director's hands, this could have been a great film.

  • Black Rain

    Black Rain 1989

    ★★★ Watched 21 Jun, 2015

    Just your average 80s/90s action movie. Look at that VHS cover and you'll know all you need to. Michael Douglas is a cop. On a motorcycle. In Japan.

    I've seen pornos with better storylines. Nice to see they delivered on all the nipples though.

    I never thought I'd get to see this on the big screen, but when I saw a cinema had it, I jumped at the chance. I've seen Terminator countless times, but this almost felt like I was watching it for the first time again. My heart was racing throughout the chase scenes and the sound effects were amazing. I didn't think it was possible to love this movie anymore than I already do.
