  • Dead Snow 2 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 10 May, 2014

    Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead is the type of movie that will rip your arm off, pull your intestines out and then run you over with a tank — just because it can. Set immediately after the original film’s ending (there is a quick primer first just in case you need a refresher on what happened), it’s clear right away just what this much-anticipated sequel has in store. The budget is much bigger, the cast is larger, and the special effects are significantly improved. This is Dead Snow cranked to 11.

  • American Hustle 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Mar, 2014

    This is a flashy con movie that is light on substance, and it probably shouldn't have received ten Oscar nominations. But it's also fun as hell, and the cast seemed like they were having the time of their lives. Not one of the best films of 2013, but still highly enjoyable.

  • Bullhead 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Jan, 2013

    Was not expecting this to be so depressing. A fascinating character study of someone who suffered an incredibly traumatic experience as a boy, and now struggles to maintain a normal life. Bullhead has an amazing performance from Matthias Schoenaerts in the lead role, someone I was unfamiliar with beforehand. This one got a well-deserved Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language Film last year.
