  • Kick-Ass

    Kick-Ass 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Mar, 2015

    Followed up Kingsman with this one. Didn't intend to wind up at the movie theater watching Kingsman. Came home to find this Netflix DVD. Didn't realize it was same director until shortly before starting Kick-Ass. Some kind of weird movie kismet? Seems about right for these offbeat but enjoyable films.

  • Kingsman: The Secret Service

    Kingsman: The Secret Service 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Mar, 2015

    "I'm a Catholic whore, currently enjoying congress out of wedlock with my black, Jewish boyfriend who works at a military abortion clinic. Hail Satan, and have a lovely afternoon, madam."

    That has got to be one of the best lines in a film ever.

    Another great line:

    "There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self." - Harry Hart quoting Ernest Hemingway

    These lines both exist in a film…

    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 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.
