  • Age of Heroes 2011

    ★★ Watched 20 Feb, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Nazi's on skis!!

    Loosely based on some true life events about Ian Fleming's Commando unit during World War II. A team of skilled (skilled-ish) commandos go on a "off the books" mission in occupied Norway to try to get information about the Nazi's superior radar equipment. Of course, not everything goes according to plan.

    I don't know where to begin. The first twenty minutes are pretty slow but once you get to the the actual mission the pace greatly picks…

  • Hondo 1953

    ★★★½ Watched 10 Feb, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

The last shot of this film is exactly like the last shot of Waiting to Exhale which is a far superior film. Just saying.

  • Invasion of Astro-Monster 1965

    ★★½ Watched 03 Jun, 2014 1

    Saw the English dubbed version, not the original Japenese version.

    All you need to know is that Godzilla does a happy dance, which looks like jumping jacks. It's a sight you won't forget. I rewound that scene at least five times. Plus Godzilla actually boxes another monster, even two steps. Do I need to say more?

    I can't remember if I'd ever seen this film before, nothing seemed familiar. I enjoyed it for the most part. The B story was…
