    My Little Pony: A Very Pony Place 2007

    ★★★★½ Watched 06 Mar, 2015

    In a desperately needed change of pace for the franchise, A Very Pony Place is an anthology film rather than one long story. While the stand-alone shorts from this era of My Little Pony aren't able to hold much ground, these three are all modeled and balanced to near-perfection.

Despite his agents' efforts,…

    Predator 1987

    ★★★★½ Watched 12 Jun, 2012

    Called in by his old partner Dillon (Carl Weathers) to rescue hostages from militants, Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger) finds himself and his men being hunted in a dense jungle by an alien predator (Kevin Peter Hall). It can blend into its environment, mimic sounds and has heat-seeking vision. Despite being outmatched and outgunned, Dutch decides to take this thing head on to make sure it can't harm any more people than it already has.

    This movie is a prime example of…
