  • The Martian

    The Martian 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 08 Oct, 2015

    Matt Damon, please just find your way home sometime. Hollywood has paid obscene amounts of money trying to find you already. Today was my dad's birthday, so I took him to the movies. It just so happens to be Matt Damon's birthday too, so that was a funny coincidence.

    Based on the novel of the same name, this is the story of an astronaut who becomes stranded on Mars after his crew leaves him behind. But nobody knows he's still…

    Let me kick it off with a story or two. The first time I ever saw this movie, I would've been about 6 or 7 years old. I was staying with my dad (a shady character) and older brother in a hotel room downtown. We were all eagerly looking forward to the movie, even though my parents had…

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 Mar, 2014

    I don't think superhero films should be comedies, history has proven that they work so much better as thrillers. And that's why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favourite Marvel film to date, possibly even more so than The Avengers.

    When someone threatens to cause major damage to S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America has to rethink everything he knows - already trying to adapt to the 21st century, he's making new friends and meeting old ones, thinking of partners lost and…
