  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 07 Aug, 2014

    This is an odd film, because my rational mind noticed that the story seemed oddly cobbled-together, but the rest of my mind said, "fuck you, this is fun!" I do wonder if people who aren't schooled in the Marvel Universe spend the first 3rd of the film wondering what the hell is going on. By the time it gets going full blast, you pretty much shrug off all doubt and just enjoy the ride.

    Groot and Rocket are definitely the best thing about this flick...which is saying something, because it has a lot of great things. Go. See. Enjoy.

  • The Shaolin Temple 1982

    ★★★ Watched 18 Jul, 2014

    Decent kung fu flick with some good fight scenes and pretty much as compelling a story as one can expect from these flicks. Standard "you killed my father/master/whatever" revenge story.

    Does feature a very young Jet Li, and some graphic depictions of Asian men eating a dog.

  • Ninja III: The Domination 1984

    ★★★½ Watched 28 Feb, 2014 1

    Sort of like mashing together The Exorcist, Poltergeist, Samurai Cop, any Sho Kosugi movie, Flashdance, and Tron.

    So, awesome, obviously.

  • Dredd 2012

    ★★★★½ Watched 02 Mar, 2014 2

    Even without having ever read the comic, I somehow feel that I can assure any fan that this is the best adaptation they will ever hope to see. The action is great, the conceit is superb, and it doesn't try to put on airs or be something it isn't. It's just a great action film, with some great characters.

    Removed a star because, let's face it, that helmet is just a tad to big for Urban's head. That or his…
