  • Tomorrowland

    Tomorrowland 2015

    ★★½ Watched 21 May, 2015

    Tomorrowland is an imaginative film that is clearly full of great new ideas, but what it chooses to do with them is unfortunately a less bright and delightful summary.

    Despite showcasing great themes, well-developed characters and some breathtaking visuals Tomorrowland can't help but pull itself back into yesteryear when it comes to providing a coherent finale for its story, which is especially disappointing considering the first two acts provide a buildup to what could've been a greatly crafted adventure.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 14 May, 2015

    To start off I must admit that I have no prior visual knowledge of the Mad Max franchise. I was familiar with the characters, concepts and general lines of the plots, but I decided to go into Fury Road with a fresh start in mind, not knowing exactly what to expect. The trailers had me intrigued, but like every film you eagerly await to see if the film matches up to your expectations.

    Did it meet my expectations? Well it…

  • Looper

    Looper 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Nov, 2012

    A brilliant film. Time travel is a hard thing to do right, but Looper gets it just right, even making fun of the process of time travel for a second.

  • Run All Night

    Run All Night 2015

    ★★★ Watched 17 Apr, 2015

    Run All Night manages to return to a recognisable level of enjoyable action that we've come to know from Neeson with films such as Non-Stop and the first Taken. Trading off his ex-intelligence persona for a more down to earth kind of killer Run All Night creates a reasonably exciting action feature that adds both new and old dynamics to its arsenal.

    I wouldn't call Run All Night an exceptional film, but it manages to do what it sets out to do; entertain its audience with a solid story and some well shot/choreographed action.
