    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 24 May, 2015 2

    "You're sitting on 200 horsepower of nitro-boosted machine. I'd say you've got a five-minute head start."

    That just about sums up the entire plot of the movie. It's almost a silent film: epic are the sounds, furious are the visuals. Frantic, high-octane, near nonstop fire and gasoline. It is almost difficult to review, save to say that it is a gorgeously composed symphony of a car chase, but Furiosa, incredibly well portrayed by Charlize Theron, tends to steal the show…

    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.
