  • Transformers: Age of Extinction 2014

    ★½ Watched 29 Sep, 2014

    2 hours and 45 minutes of pain, suffering and enduring.
    Now that I've seen it let me give all of you a tip..just skip straight to the last 30 or 40 minutes for the end battle.
    It is the only reason worth "watching" this movie for and it is the only praise I'm going to give Michael Bay, 'nuff said.

  • X-Men: First Class 2011

    ★★★★ Rewatched 28 Sep, 2014

    The 1st of the new trilogy of X-Men films, excellently directed by Matthew "Kick-Ass" Vaughn.
    Having very recently rewatched the Bryan Singer films and enjoying Rebecca Romijn as Mystique, having to sit through the younger years of Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) is kind of painful.
    As you can tell, I find Mystique to indeed be a "beautiful creature" and by far the most interesting character of the bunch.

  • 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 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.
