    "I hate space"

    In which one woman proves once and for all it really is better if you read the manual first.

    This film just gets better the more I watch it. How is that even possible?

    ★★★★½ Watched 17 May, 2015

    One hell of a ride. Essentially one giant set-piece of incredibly car chases.

    This is Furiosa's film, she carries the weight and drive of the narrative. There is so more emotion in Furiosa’s eyes the whole way through this film, the rage, the hurt, the frustration; she makes for a fiercer action hero than Max because you can see just how much she cares for these woman, how badly she needs to succeed.

    Weird and creepy. It managed to pay homage to the book while still being very much its own thing.

    Pacific Rim 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Jul, 2013

    Worth the price of admission for Idris Elba voice alone.

    Massive robots smashing even massiever (I know that's not a word) alien creature things in the face with cooler and cooler moves. What more do you need? How about an awesome boy/girl relationship based on mutual respect and kick-ass fighting skills. And did I mention Idris Elba's voice? Yum.
