  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 26 May, 2015 2

    We didn't intend on seeing Mad Max: Fury Road. Derailed from our first movie by events beyond our control, this was the movie that was playing next. I have only seen pieces of the older films and had little expectation for this one.

    By the time the film ended I had a migraine and motion sickness combined; I have never left a film sick before. And still, I find the way I'd describe this film as somewhere along the line…

  • Pitch Perfect 2

    Pitch Perfect 2 2015

    ★★★ Watched 17 May, 2015

    I have not seen the first film, but I enjoyed this one more than I expected to. I was not sure how to take quite a few of the characters.

    Strangely, there was quite a bit of misogyny for a film that focused on women and was directed by a woman. Perhaps, it was intended to be ironic?

    Overall, the music and choreography were entertaining and most of the jokes hit their marks. It's a comedy, and for what it was, it was entertaining enough.

    Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Aug, 2014

    I've never enjoyed a superhero movie more than this. While a superhero's abilities often separate him/her from the average person, this film makes the superheroes into a type of everyman. They are more easy to relate to than characters such as Superman or even Captain America. I've never read comic books and have never even heard of these characters, but I'm definitely a fan now. The casting, the special effects, the writing, the tone, everything about this film worked extremely well. I would definitely recommend this to friends--even if they are not into science fiction or superheroes.

  • No Country for Old Men

    No Country for Old Men 2007

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 Mar, 2008

    One of the things that makes Javier Bardem's performance so unnerving is that he is not just a hit man, he's also a serial killer. While this can't possibly be the first time such a character has been portrayed, it sure does feel original in the context of this film.
