  • Cast a Deadly Spell

    Cast a Deadly Spell 1991

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Aug, 2015

    Even though it's presented through massive waves of exposition, they developed a really interesting world in here. There's a persistent cheesiness, something which is inherent to a noir pastiche, but it only gets really off-putting a couple of times.

    Fred Ward it's a really great lead, his character struggles to maintain integrity in a world he doesn't comprehend and Ward, instead of giving just a plain badass gives a sympathetic old fashioned run of the mill kind of guy just trying to get by one day after another.

    I'm personally thankful for a movie that casts both him and Clancy Brown.

  • Ant-Man

    Ant-Man 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 20 Jul, 2015

    That was very fun! The jokes doesn't feel like some forced uncle humor like it usually does with Marvel movies, it blends in smoothly and serves the story. Great use of the source material, they managed to get a good background story out of Hank Pym/Janet Von Dyne to make for the 'passing of the torch'. Paul Rudd is great, as usual.

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me 1992

    ★★★★½ Watched 27 Jul, 2014

    Not that there's a lack of "James sucks" remarks in the world, but for me it has lost half a star because of him.

  • Justice League: Gods and Monsters

    Justice League: Gods and Monsters 2015

    ★★★ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    I would enjoy this so much more if I wasn't so tired of alternative, darker, dictator versions of super-heroes. As much as I'm bored by the general idea, as far as this trope goes this is one of the best examples.
    Good world building. Not the best at the portrayal of female characters.
