  • The Avengers 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 27 Apr, 2012

    WOW! Just WOW! Avengers is such an spectacle. From beginning to end you are treated to the largest and greatest superhero showdown ever put out on Cinema! I'm not saying this might be the best superhero movie of all times, but it's surely among the top ones!

    All the characters are given their time and it's nice to get some back story on the SHIELD ones. The only character that comes out uneven would be Hawkeye.

    Technically it was edited…

  • The Hunger Games 2012

    ★★★★½ Watched 08 Apr, 2012

    I'm not familiar with the books, so I cannot compare it to them. But as a movie it's a great one. Performances are all solid especially from the older actors. Lawrence was good but not great. The story was intriguing and I found the pacing perfect! And while I disliked the shaky cam, you understand it was there to distract younger audiences from all the bloody carnage going on at times.

    I'll surely be at the theaters for the sequel. And will follow up reading the books.

  • Chronicle 2012

    ★★★★½ Watched 14 Mar, 2012

    It's been a while since we got an original story of regular teens that get superpowered. Just for that the movie is already good. But the way they utilized the found footage approach, the great character development of the lead. It all makes for a great movie experience.

    The only thing that would make it perfect was more development to the other two superpowered teens. But you can't ask for it all when confined by the found footage medium.

  • Haywire 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Mar, 2012

    Pretty good thrill ride and spy movie. It's not all action which is what I would expect with the involvement of a former MMA fighter as the star. But it turned out to be way more suspenseful and intriguing than I thought! Having a capable woman doing all the fights is a welcome addition to all the skinny Jolie attempts! So overall solid spy movie with very well done action sequences.

  • Rise of the Planet of the Apes 2011

    ★★★★ Added

    Successful attempt to bring to modern times the Apes' movies. I never thought I could care so much for the ape that brings doom to mankind!

  • Troll Hunter 2010

    ★★★½ Added

    Good suspense film! They utilized the documentary style to increase the suspense and immerse you more on this world of trolls.

  • Inception 2010

    ★★★★★ Added

    A clockwork precise film experience. The directing, editing, soundtrack. It all mixes together so well around the story that you cannot find a technical flaw with this movie!

  • Kick-Ass 2010

    ★★★★½ Added

    A beautifully twisted view on the superhero genre, but handled lightly enough to make it enjoyable and funny. A must see for all comicbook fans.
