    Hardcore Henry 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Jun, 2016 5

    Three stars for unbelievable stunts and maybe same amount for Sharlto Copley's transformations, yet this is a "film" only in the broadest sense of the word - not even a "videogame movie", this is a live action videogame which approaches it's characters and story in the vein of the first "Doom" ("Story in a game is like a story in a porn movie. It's expected to be there, but it's not that important.").

    Still, a very interesting cinematic experiment, but I can only hope it ends here.

  • London Has Fallen

    London Has Fallen 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 04 Jun, 2016 2

    Gerard Butler tries his best (and worst) to make a franchise out of his "Olympus Has Fallen" character and greatly exceeds the expectations at that (as there were basically none), proving himselft to be worthy successor of late Bruce Willis. Script lacks the wits and banter to make his character truly iconic (John McClane he is not), but still manages to be a perfectly serviceable entertainment. Hoping for a part three.

    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!
