  • FernGully: The Last Rainforest

    FernGully: The Last Rainforest 1992

    ★★★ Watched 07 Jul, 2015

    Avatar owes it all to FernGully. Watched this over Skype with my dearest friend, and the movie has a good message at heart, great voice talent and quite beautiful animation (it even gets dark and intense). It still doesn't have the strongest script or performances (mostly dance and song numbers), but it's well worth watching and petty clear that the message is still poignant today.

  • The Lazarus Effect

    The Lazarus Effect 2015

    ★★ Watched 30 Jun, 2015

    Curiosity killed Olivia Wilde. Appropriate since I wanted to watch this one strictly on the premise. It's kind of like Flatliners meets Hollow Man, only weaker.

    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…
