  • Star Wars - Despecialized Edition 1977

    ★★★★★ Watched 30 Aug, 2014

    Although I've been a lifelong Star Wars fan, I've never seen the film without some sort of Lucas intervention- until now. Seeing this was almost as exciting as watching the original trilogy for the first time all over again.

    ★★★★★ Watched 21 Jan, 2014

    When Gareth Evans’ The Raid was first unleashed into the world in 2011, I stated that it was the best action film to be released in decades and one of the best ever made. Now, just two years later we have The Raid 2, a movie that had some seemingly insurmountable shoes to fill. Evans apparently knew he had to up the ante, because everything in this sequel is bigger and better. While the first entry was isolated and pure…
