  • Edge of Tomorrow 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Oct, 2014

    A weird mix of "Groundhog Day" meets ""Battle: LA", meets.... "The Matrix"??
    Who knew that would be that AWESOME!!
    Doug Liman handles action quite well, but also humor. I thoroughly enjoyed how this film balanced action and comedy, making it one of the most entertaining films of 2014!
    Didn't like the ending a 100%, but... the rest was F-U-N!

    ★★ Watched 22 Oct, 2014

    "Aliens" is damn near to accomplish just that.
    James Cameron has a knack of creating legendary sequals, doesn't he? And with "Aliens" he shows just how to continue the story of a cult classic and making a new classic on his own.
    Whereas Ridley managed to scare the crap…

  • First Blood 1982

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 18 Feb, 2014

    First time I saw this film, I was nearly thirty. Up until then I had always thought Rambo was this typical mainstream, all-muscles-no-brain kind of explosion-action flick, where Stallone shirtless showed all kinds of muscles while ripping throats open and killing whole armies alone with his bare hands.
    It is safe to say I was surprised.
    Mainly by the depth in the Rambo character. That guy has issues, and Stallone really proved himself as an actor portraying this.
