    Aloft 2014

    Watched 23 May, 2015 1

    The story of a man and his falcon who travel to the Arctic and rekindle their relationship with his estranged mother who has the ability to heal others.

    NOTHING of consequence happens in this film and it's an absolute chore to watch. Ridiculous and laughable.

    Hear myself and Kevin Rakestraw hate on this one on the Film Pulse Podcast.

  • Tomorrowland

    Tomorrowland 2015

    ★★½ Watched 18 May, 2015 1

    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…
