    Death Proof 2007

    ★★ Watched 17 Aug, 2015

    100% a Tarantino movie, only with plot and character development surgically removed. Bizarre and unsatisfying.

  • Wreck-It Ralph

    Wreck-It Ralph 2012

    ★★★ Watched 16 Aug, 2015

    I don't think Dreamworks's influence on Disney has ever been as keenly felt as when viewing this film. It's more like Shrek or Kung Fu Panda than any Disney classics.

    Observations:
    - Skrillex playing 'Celebration' by Kool and the Gang in a kid's movie is weird and random.

    Tron, Toy Story, The Lego Movie

  • Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

    Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Aug, 2015

    Best plot since the first film.

    Observations:
    - Imperator Furiosa and Ilsa Faust have the same initials.
    - Ilsa Faust knows when to wear heels, unlike Claire from Jurassic World.
    - Also her name is Ilsa Faust, which is memorable. Unlike Claire from Jurassic World. I had to look that up.

    Further:
    - Tom Cruise & Christopher McQuarrie Q&A
    - The Evolution Of Ethan Hunt, That Poor, Invincible Rag Doll Of A Man
    - Anatomy of a Scene

  • Ant-Man

    Ant-Man 2015

    ★★★ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    The effects were fantastic, but Ant-Man was awkwardly paced and surprisingly bland for a film with a concept that sets it apart so well from the rest of the MCU.

    It was a fairly toothless film as well - I was really shocked that Cassie Lang wasn't sick, as she was in the original story. That choice really, really lowered the stakes.

    Observations:
    - They cut a lot of really memorable punchlines from the trailer, including 'is it too late…
