    Knock Knock 2015

    ★★ Watched 09 Oct, 2015

    This is something not quite of this world - while the premise is itriguing and there are few interesting ideas (bits of ideas) hidden in the movie, it all gets overshadowed by epically bad Keanu Reeves trainwreck-performance - by all accounts, this is Keanu's "The Wicker Man", down to the last scene.

    Still, however "entertaining" that may be, the rest of the film doesn't live up to that. Great T&A, though - two stars for both girls, combined.

    Heist 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 12 Oct, 2015 6

    In a time when crafting a solid B-movie becomes a rare gift, this solid and entertaining combo of "Heat" and "Speed" wins by simply delivering the goods. Great Jeffrey Dean Morgan, acceptable DeNiro, wasted Bautista, few great action beats and quick pacing (film is only 90 minutes long) makes this a solid B-movie entertainment.

    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!
