  • Event Horizon

    Event Horizon 1997

    ★★★½ Watched 02 Sep, 2015

    How did this get made? It's a stupidly expensive gory horror sci-fi. Even if the late-nineties was known for excess, it still seems pretty crazy. Even so, it's a fun and fairly dumb movie as a small ship responds to Event Horizon's distress call seven years after it first went missing. Big fan of the abandoned ship trope and although the entire thing turns into a muddled mess by the end, it's an easy watch and quietly entertaining.

    ★★★ Watched 01 Sep, 2015

    Straight Outta Compton 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Aug, 2015

    Having no real knowledge of N.W.A aside from the fact that Dr. Dre, Ice Cube (soon to be seen in Ride Along 2!) and Eazy-E were a part of it, and I didn't really know anything apart from his name, it was the reviews that had me check it out. There have been a few notes online about how it may be a heavily censored version of the group's rise to prominence but no matter, that happens every time. Documentaries…
