  • Rio 2 2014

    ★★ Watched 10 Apr, 2014

    Now with more birds! As much as I enjoyed the first film, this one doesn't have the same rhythm. The folks at Blue Sky are insanely talented, I just wish they'd stop making sequels to sell toys.

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 06 Apr, 2014

    A damn fine, proper action movie. Insanely well constructed and much bigger in scope than expected. Marvel's desire to make movies from different genres (ie. a political spy thriller) is setting their superhero movies apart from everything else out there.

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Mar, 2013

    Further proof that Shane Carruth makes films that you don't watch to understand, you feel them.

  • Olympus Has Fallen 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Mar, 2013 3

    Despite some awful CGI, this one strikes hard with wicked close-quarters violence, absurd Die Hardien scenarios and a lead performance from Gerard Butler that is among the best tough guy jobs we've seen in a long while.
