    Captain America: Civil War 2016

    ★★★★★ Travis Lytle Watched by Travis Lytle 21 May, 2016 4

    A terrific jolt of popcorn-cinema electricity, "Captain America: Civil War" is an intelligently layered and thoroughly entertaining spectacle. With its riveting action, perfectly placed cast, and commitment to push its characters and their universe in meaningful narrative directions, the film effortlessly reaches the highest standard for 21st century blockbusters.

    Focusing more on the Avengers than Captain America himself, "Captain America: Civil War" finds Marvel's enhanced humans forming sides when world governments attempt to pull the heroes under bureaucratic oversight mechanisms…

    ★★★★½ James Healey Watched by James Healey 21 May, 2016 6

    The Neon Demon is Refn in his purest form as an auteur. A bit more substance than Only God Forgives and a hell of a lot more style. Can films get more neon this? (The answer is no). Refn' dialogue is insane here. You thought KST's character was nuts in OGF? Well most characters in this are like that and I fucking love it. Although the story feels a bit sparse, the satire of the modeling industry is so on fucking point. The last 20 minutes was some of the crazy shit I'll see ever. I need this again ASAP.

    you know, all the stuff people seemed to like/find profound(?) in the first half of Man Of Steel is here... but like good--the moody meditations on family, spirituality and nostalgia, complimented by the most finely-tuned & layered imagery singer has ever even attempted imo. also helps that the character of superman is actually in it but hey whatever.

    ★★★½ SilentDawn Rewatched by SilentDawn 20 May, 2016


    A comedy that works because of its combo of simplicity and style. Two sides wage conflict within day-glo set pieces, and it succeeds because of remarkable comedic character work. If you haven't heard, Rose Byrne is a star and Dave Franco's smile is akin to a ray of sunshine.

    People upset by the mere existence of the GHOSTBUSTERS remake: Why aren't you outraged about this desecration of a true cinematic masterpiece?

  • The Nice Guys

    The Nice Guys 2016

    ★★★★ Gary Busey Watched by Gary Busey 22 May, 2016 4

    While it's mystery didn't enormously compel me and a few subplots bothered me a bit, namely being the little girl's insistence on showing mercy, I still loved The Nice Guys. Additionally, I think the film found it's stride most in the beginning, when the film was almost entirely focused on developing the foundation for Crowe and Gosling's relationship, and the impeccable pacing gets lost a bit once the plot takes the wheel. I wished Black had spent less time in…

    It's Only the End of the World 2016

    ★★★★½ Eli Hayes Watched by Eli Hayes 19 May, 2016 11

    Less of a journey/more compact Dolan but just as compelling as the rest of his filmography; a powerful investigation of familial dysfunction and the inability to communicate in the face of stressful or foreign situations. With that being said, I'm honestly surprised that this family didn't start chopping up and cannabilizing one another. MVP: Vincent Cassel.

    Almost everyone in my theater was laughing for about three hours straight. I think that speaks for itself; I've never quite had a movie-going experience like seeing this film with an audience.

    "Don't worry. A naked girl is not going to get out of this complex!"

    A widescreen Tobe Hooper epic, curated for Cannon Films as a form of blockbuster "legitimacy" only to become enraptured in its own barrage of sex and blood, absorption and ghostly light beams. Both a gigantic amalgamation of influences (Scott, Spielberg, Kubrick, Roeg etc.) and a 2 hour "fuck you" aimed towards the tightening grip of 80s Hollywood, Hooper unleashes an "overwhelmingly female presence" onto the…

    Given that I’ve never been a fan of Beyoncé, and this was created from an album that I never would’ve listened to, it was perhaps naïve of me to think that this feature length music video would make me feel any differently towards her. Although I can understand why people like her particular brand of sassiness, her talent is mostly wasted on my ears as I’m yet to experience my moment of enlightenment with this particular artist.

    Lemonade is comprised…

    ★★★½ bree1981 Watched by bree1981 18 May, 2016 9

    I've finally got round to watching the debut feature from director Jeremy Saulnier and while it was shot on a low budget and is fairly rough around the edge's, it's also extremely funny in places and shows a lot of promise. The kind of film where a lot of ideas have been thrown into the mix and while not all of them work, the success rate is pretty good.
    Set in NYC during Halloween, the film stars Chris Sharp as…

    ★★★ YI JIAN Watched by YI JIAN 24 May, 2016 4

    Saoirse Ronan is both delightful and charming as Eilis, her maturation through the film is incredibly inspiring. Love the costumes and hairdo those are A+.

    Just moved into my new apartment in town recently and a film about homesickness isn't exactly what I need at the moment, makes it harder for me to settle down, you see -- ah, now I feel sad.

    "And there's nothing you can do about it apart from endure it. But you will, and it won't kill you."

    This is going to be my personal mantra for the next couple of days.

    ★★★★★ Wes Ball Rewatched by Wes Ball 24 May, 2016 3

    Why is Robocop so iconic?

    Perhaps it's because Robocop is one of the most memorable characters of the 1980's. A robot with a human touch. He has the best one-liners delivered in that oh-so-robotic tone that has the perfect comedic mix for a film like this. He's the epitome of the 80's hero, the strong man upholding the law. He is lawful good. He's the model cinema hero.

    Or perhaps it's the soundtrack. That delicious orchestral theme song with occasional…
