  • Hercules 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 25 Jul, 2014

    A weird mix between "The Scorpion King" and "Conan the Barbarian" (the Momoa one), this version of "Hercules" shuns away from all the magic and offers realistic, "dark & gritty" view on the character - which, coupled with Brett Ratner's lightweight approach and Dwayne's charisma, this movie is everything but.

    More like an excuse for The Rock to play his favourite hero and beef up to truly epic proportions, "Hercules" is mindless and simple, but good-hearted summer entertainment.

  • Sex Tape 2014

    ★★ Watched 24 Jul, 2014

    Another case of almost-puritan family comedy hiding behind raunchy name (i.e. "Girl Next Door"). Also #unsexy and #unfunny

  • The Rover 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 17 May, 2014 2

    Tough, gritty and quietly powerful, this film not only delivers great Guy Pearce and surprising Robert Pattinson performances, but also answers one of the most important questions out there - is Australia really the best place to be after the apocalypse? Definetely not!

    With influences ranging from "Max Max" (the 1st one) to "High Plains Drifter", this is "The Road: Down Under". Highly recommended!

  • Foxcatcher 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 20 May, 2014 1

    Continuing the estabilished trend, Bennet Miller's "Foxcatcher" is one of the most subtle, nuanced mainstream dramas of recent years and delivers powerhouse performances of all three male leads, especially from almost-unrecognizeable Carrell.

    Follow this one, as the nominations are sure to follow.
