  • Kingsman: The Secret Service 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 14 Feb, 2015 3

    Surprisingly awesome. However, if you’re going to have an entrance to a secret weapons lair from within a dressing room, “pulling the clothes hook down” seems Ill-advised. And also, tilting a picture frame that doesn't snap back to perfectly square is a bad call too. It’s like they want someone like me to stumble into their secret society by accident.

  • Dumb and Dumber To 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Dec, 2014

    Just like the 2011 reboot of Beavis and Butt-head, I was drawn into watching this based on childhood nostalgia. The humour is as juvenile as I remember it; yet I couldn't stop laughing at the gags. Girls will not enjoy this movie.

  • Senna 2010

    ★★★★½ Watched 11 Mar, 2012

    When Ayrton Senna describes winning a race like taking a powerful drug, you really believe him. Race after race, as he stands on the first place podium pouring champagne over himself, he has a look of pure ecstasy on his face. He loved Motorsport and he loved winning.
    His team doctor recollected Senna's humility being so rare amongst race drivers, and you can sense his personal and professional growth as the film progresses. It drew me in and left me gutted knowing where it ended.

  • Aliens 1986

    ★★★★★ Watched 30 Oct, 2011

    This movie is so great, I'm amazed I never saw it growing up. Modern action movies can't keep my attention like this one could, and this was the extended edition. I'm not sure what was left out in the theatrical cut, but each scene in this seemed essential.
    Also, now I finally understand the context of "they mostly come at night... mostly".
