  • The Way, Way Back 2013

    ★★★ Watched 18 Jul, 2014

    The main difference between the film and the trailer, is that the film just has a little more dialogue. The trailer basically tells you all you need to know. The trailer almost made me cry, the film didn't. That threw me off track a little.
    It's a sweet film, though, and Sam Rockwell is awesome. I just feel that this film could've been SO much more.

  • The Family 2013

    ★★½ Watched 17 Jul, 2014

    This film is mostly a lot of "meh", but there are a few things making it worth a watch.
    1. Dianna Agron. Yum!
    2. A kick ass ending!

    Based on a novel or not, Luc Besson should stick to making movies based on what he knows best; the kind of action we're shown in the final 10 minutes of the film. Otherwise the films ends up as a weird mix of drama and not-so-funny humor.

  • Die Hard: With a Vengeance 1995

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 13 Jul, 2014

    You know what, I haven't got a single bad thing to say about this beautiful little pearl of a 90's action flick.
    It's just too darn PERFECT!!
    So many brillliant action scenes.
    Such brilliant dialogue.
    Perhaps the greatest Samuel L. Jackson performance in history...
    I mean, what more can you want???
    To quote Colm Meaney's character in "Con Air":
    "Beautiful?? Sunsets are beautiful. Newborn babies are beautiful. This, this is FUCKIN' SPECTACULAR!!"

  • 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.
    The way…
