    Stung 2015

    ★★ Watched 11 Feb, 2016

    This giant wasp movie has a lot of gooey wasp scenes (and plenty of CGI), but without anything really resembling a story or characters it was kind of hard to care.

    "I'll see you in court."

    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…
