  • Jason Bourne

    Jason Bourne 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Jul, 2016

    Jason Bourne gets thrust into a new situation where he is yet again both hunting and hunted.

    Jason Bourne is not absolutely magnificent, but it is definitely entertaining. It delivers all the main qualities that we've come to expect from a good Bourne movie with Damon and Greengrass, and not that goddamn atrocity The Bourne Legacy, which I'll hereforth never speak of again.

    The film is driven by handheld action, including a lot of nervy spy sequences and intense car…

  • Spy

    Spy 2015

    ★★ Watched 28 Jul, 2016

    So I decided to wrap up the Paul Feig watching, now I've seen all of his major movies to date. This one is about an assistant to a spy who has to take up the mantle for herself.

    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…
