  • Captain America: Civil War

    Captain America: Civil War 2016

    ★★★★★ Watched 25 Apr, 2016 7

    I don't think that we can judge this on it's own - it's 2016, it's superhero movies golden age, it's Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's episodic/interconnected storytelling, it's Marvel vs DC era, after all.

    And, considering all this, this is nearly everything that we can and should expect from comic-book movie, and then some. I will (probably) go into details later, but I really can't wait to discuss this with you guys!

    Bastille Day 2016

    ★★★ Watched 21 Apr, 2016

    A pretty average euro-action vechile for Idris Elba to showcase his charisma and star-power but none of his excellent acting chops. Not sure if the "Paris bombings" plot is ok in current political landscape, but at least Elba/Richard Madden duo has it's chemistry.

    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

    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!
