  • Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas

    Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas 2003

    ★★★ Watched 05 May, 2016

    This was on Netflix, and I hadn't seen it or even heard of it before, but it looked pretty decent, so I gave it a go.

    Sinbad the adventurer is tasked with retrieving a magical book from the dangerous realm of Tartarus, but an evil goddess stands in his way.

    The good thing about this is that it moves like a runaway freight train. From start to finish, this is packed with action, humor and adventure, much like a far…

  • The Sandlot

    The Sandlot 1993

    ★★★★ Watched 04 May, 2016 4

    How is it possible that I had never seen this before today, and barely even heard of it?

    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…
