  • Power/Rangers 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 25 Feb, 2015

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

    Bulk.... Skull... you sold us out- far funnier to me for some reason than i'm guessing even a parody intended it to be.

    Very well made spin on the "dark reboot" process that seems to happen to most property's these days but even here the familiar beats even with the short run time started getting tiresome to me. They did get me back with that fantastic ending mind and as ever it's great seeing Sackhoff in anything and Van der beek is as fun as he has been the past few years, he for one sees to be really enjoying this.

  • The Last Stand 2013

    ★★½ Rewatched 22 Feb, 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 05 Dec, 2012 1

    Four years after In Bruges Martin McDonagh returns to deliver a truly bonkers farce filled with wonderful meta-humour carried excellently by maybe the best ensemble cast this year.

    Hilarious dialogue that I've been quoting since i got out of the cinema, just as good as In Bruges at times. Rockwell steals the whole thing with an energetic and mad performance. Gets all the best lines and orchestrates the best scene in the film. His campfire tale is a colossus that…
