  • The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Jul, 2014

    Face punching, fist pumping, bone crunching, jaw ripping, leg breaking, skull cracking, eye gouging, flesh tearing, meat slicing, machete dicing, shank stabbing, staff smacking, bullet riddling, car crashing, body mashing, baseball batting, blood spraying, road chafing, hammer swinging, full-auto screaming...this is the stuff The Raid 2 is made of!

  • Wolf Creek 2 2013

    ★★½ Watched 04 Jul, 2014

    Effective, gory, brutal and a little overlong and "torture porn" heavy. And yes, the kangaroo scene is wrongheaded, but twisted funny. Jarratt play's this full on...wicked funny but always menacing.

    Kid makes nuke to protest nuke facility in his backyard...this film WOULD NEVER BE MADE TODAY!

    This film is criminally under represented. The cast alone is so good it should be against the law...and everyone gives it all! I watched the shit out of this on video in HS, probably saw it 2-3 times in theaters, much to the dismay of friends, who probably still don't understand what's so great about it. This is not a perfect film, but it is great Walter Hill. It's a tight story and shot with sweat and gusto. Goldsmith's score…
