  • Everly

    Everly 2014

    ★★★ Watched 26 Oct, 2016

    Holy shit, what started out as some of the stupidest piece of character decision making turned into one nasty grindhouse fest.
    Salma Hayek still got the smoking hot bod she's ever had and it's fun to see her kick ass and shoot the shit up.
    Consider Everly to be part my guilty pleasures.

  • Star Trek Beyond

    Star Trek Beyond 2016

    ★★★ Rewatched 23 Oct, 2016

    2nd viewing, 1st time at home.
    This film lost something major on its second viewing.
    It also feels very rushed at times.
    Actually the further the film went on, the more I started to long for more slow paced and proper Trek.
    All the slick scenes in the world won't make for a good film.
    Maybe it was simply the mood that I was in but I just wasn't feeling the Trek magic this time around.

  • Strange Days

    Strange Days 1995

    ★★★★½ Watched 30 Apr, 2013 8

    What a fantastic collaboration between James Cameron for writing this impressive 90's futuristic story and the screenplay and Kathryn Bigelow for directing this fantastic thrill ride! The film's got great leading performances from Ralph Fiennes as Lenny Nero, Juliette Lewis and Angela Bassett. The supporting cast is impressive too with solid performances across the board. The action sequences are simply fantastic, Kathryn Bigelow really shines in that department. This was my 1st viewing of Strange Days and expect to revisit this great film once either the US or UK blu-ray is released. Highly recommended!

  • The Wolf of Wall Street

    The Wolf of Wall Street 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Mar, 2014 2

    One of Mr. Scorsese's finest films, The Wolf of Wall Street is a 3 hour tour de force brimmed with energy and fantastic acting.
    Like so many other reviewers have already stated before me, it is a feat and an acknowledgement for a 3 hour film to only feel not even half as long, it is that good.
    I don't think it is worth a 5 star rating but I did thoroughly enjoy the hell out of it and will definitely add this to my Blu-ray collection.
