  • Trainwreck

    Trainwreck 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Jul, 2015

    Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Tilda Swinton, John Cena and LeBron James (seriously) elevate Trainwreck into being a much funnier comedy than it otherwise would have been. Schumer's script about a love 'em and leave girl who falls hard for a sports doctor is full of romantic comedy cliches -- albeit genderswapped -- but it recognizes this fact and seems more interested in knowingly playing within the lines than lazily following the tracks.

    88 2015

    ★★★ Watched 29 Jul, 2015

I had heard much about the struggle to get the film released, of course--filmed by Drew Goddard based on a script by Joss Whedon and himself, delayed to do 3D post-conversion and…

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 22 May, 2015

    "What a lovely day" is Mad Max: Fury Road's most marketed phrase, but the one that most exemplifies it is "We are not things." This fourth film in the famous Australian franchise is a $150 million arthouse post-apocalyptic spaghetti western, and a fabulous one at that. George Miller is as good as he's ever been behind the camera with this intense experience that turns many elements of the action genre on its head. The acting is top-notch -- including from…
