  • American Sniper 2014

    ★★ Watched 09 Jan, 2015

    Some good combat porn here, but muddled storytelling ruins the message. Not a good movie.

  • RED 2 2013

    ★½ Watched 04 Jan, 2015

    I remember the first RED movie as marginal but entertaining. This sequel is more or less the same; more marginal, less entertaining. Some fun moments, but way too many abrupt jumps from scene to scene or shot to shot. Not worth the time I spent watching it.

  • Mission: Impossible II 2000

    ★★ Watched 31 Dec, 2011

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Finally got around to the last M:I movie I hadn't seen. It was way better than I expected, but the ridiculous John Woo BS was actually worse than I thought. Way worse. Throw in the horrible overuse of the mask gimmick, and I think the bad surprises cancel out the good ones.

  • Fury 2014

    ★★★ Watched 29 Nov, 2014

    Nothing really new story-wise (to a disappointing degree), but the action scenes are awesome. And that's pretty much all anyone who sees this should be interested in, so mission accomplished.
