    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016

    ★★★★ Rewatched 28 Jun, 2016

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I just watched the Ultimate Edition via Digital HD. This was definitely an improvement, especially in the choppy plotting. The story makes sense now, and it patches up some HUGE plot holes (or plot gaps, rather) that made the Theatrical Cut so odd and incoherent, while also padding out character motivations a bit. I will also say that even though it's a better version, it's still a better version of the same movie, so if you didn't like the tone,…

    The Magnificent Seven 1960

    ★★★½ Watched 27 Jun, 2016

    Having recently rewatched Seven Samurai, and with this playing on TV tonight, I thought..hell, I'll download it! Make sense much? Well, I hate television.

    50 fucking stars. A hundred. The Terminator is, was, and always has been one of the greatest science-fiction action thrillers ever made.

    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…
