  • Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

    Jack Reacher: Never Go Back 2016

    ★★½ Watched 21 Oct, 2016

    Unfortunately, as good or enthusiastic Tom Cruise is (or however beautiful he runs and runs and runs around), the script for this Jack Reacher adventure is extremally lazy, and opens your eyes to what a genius job Chris McQuarrie did on the (probably) subpar source material. This is just lazy filmmaking and plain bad writing.

    ps. Cruise is excellent!

    War on Everyone 2016

    Gets even better on repeated viewings! I could understand that this humour is not for everyone, but... come on, people, as satyrical films go, this is one of the best (ever).

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 11 May, 2015

    A perfectly executed lesson in world-building, stunt-staging, editing and non-stop suspense from the (mad) mastermind George Miller also serves as a huge middle-finger to modern-day action "products" - it's fast, brutal, violent and, at times, utterly mad.

    We needed a film like this, and we got it - I'm not sure yet if I need a sequel, I just want to see this one again (and again) to soak in all the details!

    Inside Out 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 18 May, 2015 1

    Whoa! After losing it's mojo for a bit (Monsters University, Cars) under the heavy wing of Disney, the old Pixar is back with a vengeance with this brilliant, innovative and one-of-a-kind film!

    Animated "Oscar" is guaranteed, but is it studio's best film? It may very well be!
