  • Premium Rush 2012

    ★★★ Watched 31 Jan, 2015

    Entertaining and fast paced, David Koepp's Premium Rush is a lot of fun and a little bit silly, but what does one ask from an action thriller-y film set in the world of bike messengers, luckily Joseph Gordon Levitt's solid lead keeps it from wandering too much into the land of complete foolishness. Michael Shannon's baddie is a bit much (a lot too much at times), but the film has a neat little running time and some cool visual tricks to keep you occupied making for a pleasant (yet forgettable) Saturday night diversion.

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Oct, 2014 2

    It's probably good David Fincher made Alien 3 if only to confirm the fact that he is human after all.

    I am not quite sure what to say about Gone Girl other than pretty much acknowledging nay pledging my adulation for it right here. I want to say this isn't a perfect film, but I can't find any fault with it. From stars Ben Affleck - I never hated him, but after this i don't see why anyone still would…
