  • Still Alice

    Still Alice 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Apr, 2015

    I must confess that I have an absolutely awful short term memory span. Sometimes I forget that I've brushed my teeth or used shampoo, I've left keys in cars and doors, misplaced keys for lockers (and many had to be forced open), drove away while a cable was still attached, and I certainly have a hard time memorizing and remembering names, dates and locations. I keep everything schedueled in my phone now though, particularly important events and dates, with reminders…

  • Wolfen

    Wolfen 1981

    ★★★ Watched 25 Apr, 2015

    Wolfen was part of the big werewolf craze of the early 1980's, released alongside movies such as An American Werewolf in London and The Howling.

    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…
