  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Apr, 2016

    I loved Zack Snyder's Man of Steel so I was looking forward to the next entry and when Batman was announced and then cast my anticipation grew even more (Affleck is the man). 

    The backlash this film has gotten, it doesn't do anything to me. I let it die down, kept my anticipation at its high level, and sat down to see how it would actually go down. And I guess I thought it was really good. At first sight…

    Sahara 2005

    ★★★½ Watched 24 Apr, 2016

    Good old fashioned adventure, an excellent leading man worthy of his own franchise, a funny sidekick and a romantic interest who can more than stand her own ground. Sahara just works and I am glad the film was recently brought to my attention as I had wrongfully neglected to see it all this time. It is just a lot of fun - which is remarkable since there's quite a bit of human suffering at stake in it - and it clearly should have been the first in a whole series of Dirk Pitt adventures.

    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…

  • What Dreams May Come

    What Dreams May Come 1998

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Aug, 2014

    There is no chance I am able to write an objective review after having seen a Robin Williams film now, but who cares about objectivity at a time like this.

    Minor spoilage included, proceed at your own risk.

    I have consciously avoided What Dreams May Come since its theatrical run,but I felt like this was as good a time as any as the sad plot might prove to be something of a cathartic experience for me. The story of doctor…
