    Creed 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Nov, 2015

    Who could have seen this punch to the gut coming? After the sixth entry in the Rocky series Rocky Balboa, everyone assumed that Sylvester Stallone would gang up the gloves as the Italian Stallion for good. That film ended his overall arc quite well and didn't really need to continue the story any further. Yet, writer/director Ryan Coogler and everyone else involved in the production managed to pull off the seemingly disastrous prospect of dipping back into this franchise with…

    Short Term 12 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 15 Sep, 2013

    Not much can really be said about Short Term 12. I'll put it simply; it makes you lose all faith in humanity... and then regain it in the span of 96 minutes. Brie Larson deserves that Best Actress statue now. One of the years best, if not thee best. SEE. IT.
