  • Kingsman: The Secret Service

    Kingsman: The Secret Service 2015

    ★★★ Watched 01 Jan, 2016

    I literally cannot decide if I enjoyed this movie or not. I enjoyed the spoofing on James Bond and the whole premise of The Kingsmen. Colin Firth and Mark Strong are always amazing. The direction during the action sequences was fan-bloody-tastic. So I liked it, right?

    On the other hand, the whole movie had a super offputting air of.. colonialism. Then there was the brutal violence against civilians that was constantly being shrugged off as nothing significant. And the weird off-tone final moments of.. butt sex? Huh.

    I guess I mostly liked it, but I'm not sure I would watch a sequel.

  • Fifty Shades of Grey

    Fifty Shades of Grey 2015

    I saw this movie the only way anyone should: drunk on New Years Eve, shouting "oh shut up!" at the screen with a bunch of friends.

  • Split Second

    Split Second 1992

    ★★★ Watched 10 Apr, 2012

    Look, pretty much everything you need to know about this movie you can see in the poster. It's Rutger Hauer and the slogan is: "He's seen the future.. now he has to kill it. He'll need bigger guns." The rest of the movie is written as delightfully terribly as the slogan.

    Hauer plays a cop in an alternate future London who must stop an Alien rip-off from tearing out people's hearts. He also calls a dog a "dickhead". Twice.

  • Shaun of the Dead

    Shaun of the Dead 2004

    ★★★★★ Added

    This is my favorite movie. Yes, Shaun of the Dead. There are some scary bits, some gory bits, some funny bits, and some touching bits, wrapped up in a big message about how behaving like a grown-up is unpleasant but necessary sometimes. The creators of this movie clearly love the genre, and it's full of really delightful in-jokes for the zombie fan.
