  • The Expendables 3 2014

    ★★½ Watched 14 Aug, 2014

    The ultimate testosterone-fuelled, ’80s-action throwback series, The Expendables, is back in its third and most boisterous installment to date. Touting more characters and mindless action than ever before, The Expendables 3 brings together a plethora of aging action stars and pits them against wave after wave of generic villains in an attempt to up the ante yet again. But in a post-The-Raid-2 world, is there still a place for this type of action that favors gunplay and explosions over meticulously…

  • Septic Man 2013

    ★★ Watched 12 Aug, 2014

    Septic Man is a shitty movie in every sense of the word. It’s a film heavily centered around shit and, other than the high quality and extremely gross gore effects, it’s not a very well made movie either.

In many ways it feels like a higher quality Troma film, which could be viewed as a compliment, depending on how disgusting you like your horror.

    If your vagina is gushing blood and maggots, your eyes are bleeding, your fingernails are falling off, and your hair is coming out in clumps you'd probably go to the hospital right? Apparently not if you're a self-centered twenty-something. In that case, you go to work, then try to win…

  • The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★★ 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…
