    X-Men: Days of Future Past

    ★★

    Michael Showalter gave a better Nixon than the one in here.

    Nothing new it's being told with the prejudice metaphor, and still it drags on and on.

    There's an overall feel of every Bryan Singer movie, X-Men or otherwise, that I can't quite put my finger on why it annoys me.

    Cast a Deadly Spell

    ★★★★

    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

    ★★★★

    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

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    ★★★★½

    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.
