    The Final Girls 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Oct, 2015

    Ah the slasher film. The home of slutty girls, dumb jocks, boobs, sex and copious amounts of gore. These B-movie flicks were the staple of the 80's and provided many a night of entertainment with their groan-worthy dialogue, jump-scares and so-bad-it's-good acting and special effects.

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2014

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 03 Aug, 2014

    There's a lot to like about Dawn. Like a lot of great sequels, the themes are a lot darker than its predecessor, and that in itself lends an emotional weight to the proceedings, adding to the feeling that there is a lot at stake to the events that unfold on-screen.
