  • Noah 2014

    ★★★★ Rewatched 15 Apr, 2014

    Having seen film twice, I can confirm that this is very uneven experience - having total free reign, Darren's dream project partially collapses under it's own weight of expectations, both internal and external (as any dream project should do, probably).

    Still, a very poverful and visually stunning adaptation of the classic tale that will divide almost as strongly as a (almost non-present in film's script) book it's based on - luckily for me, I am not in a hater's camp.

  • Jurassic Park III 2001

    ★★½ Rewatched 12 Apr, 2014

    Having watched it only once on release, I remembered it being weaker than it's predcessors, the truth, of course, is that it's much, much worse - basically just a bunch of scenes of people screaming and running away from dinosaurs (they do it rather enthusiastically, so it's not a complete failure).

    Overall, a dark day for a Steven Spielberg blockbuster.

  • The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Mar, 2014

    A big departure from the original, Evans tries to create his Asian-gangster-saga-masterpiece and somewhat fails, but by the middle of the film you are ready to forgive him everything, and by the end you are literally cramped into the seat - the fights, THE FIGHTS!

  • Lone Survivor 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Dec, 2013 2

    "Black Hawk Down" in Afghanistan. Despite slightly misleading (and too hurrah-patriotic) trailer, this film follows the same themes as most modern war movies - chances, choices and fighting for the man next to you. But boy is it tense - once bullets start flying, Peter Berg packs such a punch that you have to remind yourself to breathe.
