    ★★ Watched 04 Mar, 2015

    it's pretty bad
    but some of it is ambitious and pretty and it's a shame these crazy siblings might never get the chance to spend millions on slick visuals like this again

    ★★ Watched 05 Mar, 2015

    I made it all the way through it, which is more than I can say for THG: Mockingjay (Part Uno). But just because it is technically watchable doesn't mean it was enjoyable.

    Best thing Chris Rock has done in forever.
    A romcom that ends nicely

    ★★½ Watched 17 Mar, 2015

    made the unintersting slightly interesting
    I'm surprised it was so popular at the box office

    Citizenfour 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Feb, 2015

    Taught me quite a bit about Snowden and the leaks. Before I pretty much only knew about PRISM. Only knew he was seeking aslyum and stuff but never followed up on where he ended up.
    The key characters come across well.

    the trailer was better

  • Kingsman: The Secret Service

    Kingsman: The Secret Service 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Feb, 2015

    was a lot more fun than I was expecting!
    the action sequences were boss, reminiscent of the world's end
    and it was a lot funnier than I thought it would be

  • John Wick

    John Wick 2014

    ★★★ Watched 31 Jan, 2015

    solid little flick
    leaves out the worst thing about some revenge flicks, the long exposition of the character's past and motivations bla bla bla
