  • Stretch 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 04 Nov, 2014 1

    It seems to be getting a bit of hate and I can see why. I just decided to sit back, though, and enjoy the ride and I ended up having some of the most fun I've had with a movie this year. It's nothing new at all and it takes from a lot of different movies, but it does the night-getting-worse concept well and keeps coming up with insane and fun characters. Patrick Wilson is a good leading man and…

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 20 Oct, 2014 6

    I'm a little torn on this. The rating could be a little higher, but I'll leave it here since that was my initial feeling.

    Being a David Fincher film, Gone Girl is of course technically brilliant. Not really anything I could say about it in that department that drags it down. Direction, design, look, score, acting, pretty fantastic as always. What does take it down a notch for me though is having read the book. This is an unfair criticism,…

  • The Equalizer 2014

    ★★★ Watched 27 Sep, 2014 6

    No idea why it had to be so violent. Denzel is made out to be pretty much a psycho at times. It's mostly good times but it's too long (seems like nobody can make an action movie that's less than 2 hours these days...). It's so over the top too, that it puts the expression over the top to shame. But, like I said, good times.

  • Sin City: A Dame to Kill For 2014

    ★★ Watched 02 Sep, 2014

    Marv was okay, but that's mostly because Mickey Rourke is such a badass. Other than that, everything was extremely messy and felt like a string of scenes that Rodriguez thought were cool, put together in any which way. It's almost like everything could be shuffled around and it wouldn't make a difference. Rodriguez last good film, when was that? Maybe he's lost it.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 02 Aug, 2014 4

    This has got to be one of the most fun movies I have watched in a long, long time. From beginning to end I was pretty much smiling or laughing, maybe also a couple of instances of me appreciating that a little depth and emotion was added to a superhero movie like this. It's simple emotional stuff but it works and it pays off in the end. I liked all of the guardians which is the most important thing I…

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Aug, 2014 2

    Better than the first one. I loved the look of the film - set design, cinematography and most of all I love any movie that shows a post apocalyptic world with plants growing wild. It is a very pleasing visual to me.

    The apes do of course look fantastic but above all I love to see Jason Clarke lead a blockbuster. That man deserves to get some serious screentime. I don't really feel too strongly about the film. All I can say is that it is well made and enjoyable.

  • How to Train Your Dragon 2 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Nov, 2014

    Good stuff in here. Though I have to say, the mix between a very cartoony look of characters and water, shadows, other elements that looks pretty fantastic, is weird to me and I don't quite dig it.

  • Boyhood 2014

    Ethan Hawke.

  • 22 Jump Street 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Jun, 2014

    Not as good as the first one but I'll put that down to surprise and of course retreading of previous material. Material that is good though, so it is still hugely enjoyable and just a fun fun ride. Jonah Hill is becoming one of my favorite guys to watch on screen.

  • Edge of Tomorrow 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 27 Jun, 2014 7

    Tom Cruise pretty much always delivers. Say what you will, that man gives 100 % and I respect him for that. I could say a lot of stuff that this film does right, but I will leave it at Tom Cruise.
