    Suicide Squad 2016

    Watched 14 Aug, 2016

    Just an absolutely terrible mess of a film. It's all over the place and brings nothing at all to the game. Why do we always always always need the beam in the sky and the overpowered villains?

    What a beautiful film. So much heart. For brothers everywhere, amen.

    It's got a little bit of everything. Sometimes it doesn't quite work but most of the time it does, and I think that's down to the great acting and the fact that the film looks and sounds so fantastic. The score is brilliant, there when you need it and gone at the right moments. It builds up really well and had me going this way and that at the end. It didn't feel too long to me at all, again because there's simply so much in here. All kinds of different horror elements with side orders of humor.

    Entertaining from start to finish. What a bunch of characters.

  • 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

    13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi 2016

    ★★★ Watched 24 Jul, 2016

    Thought it was pretty decent with some good action sequences. The Office is pretty good here, Krasinski the best, but David Denman didn't really have all that much to work with.

  • Ikiru

    Ikiru 1952

    ★★★★½ Watched 23 Jul, 2016

    It's not perfect, a little too long is mostly what drags it down, but the impact is amazing. The ending is just beautiful and the journey there is fantastic. And such a beautiful song.

  • Demolition

    Demolition 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Jul, 2016

    There's a lot that doesn't really work here, but it's got good energy to it and I love watching Jake in anything. He carries it mostly on his own here, but that's okay. What a great guy.

    Could've used some more Bride in this flick.

    Fantastic footage. What a world out there, and the people that go there are extraordinary.

  • The Spirit of the Beehive

    The Spirit of the Beehive 1973

    ★★★½ Watched 20 Jul, 2016

    It's shot beautifully, but it didn't really connect with me. Tries for this dreamy world, but most of the time it doesn't work and it just becomes a slow film.

  • Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

    Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby 2006

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Jul, 2016

    Yet another solid Adam McKay comedy. They always go for it and often go overboard, but a lot of their stuff hits the right stuff.

  • Wild Strawberries

    Wild Strawberries 1957

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Jul, 2016 2

    Third film, and finally a really like a Bergman flick. This got to me quite a bit. It's well-acted, looks good and hits home perfectly when it ends.
