  • Krull

    Krull 1983

    ★★★★ Rewatched 24 Aug, 2016

    I felt like watching this old fantasy/sci-fi flick, that I hadn't seen in decades. It was a movie me and my brother discovered sometime in the 90's I think, just channel browsing one evening, and it really stuck with me. The name, the imagery, the weapon, the practical effects. All of it.

    The planet Krull is invaded by an entity known as the "Beast" and his army of futuristic "Slayers", who travel the galaxy in a mountain-like spaceship called the…

  • The Butterfly Effect

    The Butterfly Effect 2004

    ★★★ Rewatched 23 Aug, 2016

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    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…
