  • The Purge: Election Year

    The Purge: Election Year 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Jul, 2016

    An excellent conclusion to this thrashy "trilogy" and I was surprised at the amount of character work in this one.

    I don't believe they will stop at three and, honestly, I don't want them to, although I would like them to be not interconnected and better explore different aspects of The Purge.

  • Star Trek Beyond

    Star Trek Beyond 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Jul, 2016

    A great "Star Trek" episode and almost perfect summer blockbuster whose only "problem" (and I don't think it's a problem) is that it's a typical summer blockbuster (no surprises there), albeit a really, really well-made one.

    Still, entertaining & fun - a rare commodity these days.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    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!
