    The Nice Guys 2016

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 May, 2016

    After seeing THE NICE GUYS, I propose we allow Shane Black to make all the movies. That's right...all of them.

    If that's a little unrealistic, let's instead just concentrate on about a dozen NICE GUYS sequels. I can't remember the last time I've so wanted to see something become a franchise. If LETHAL WEAPON could get three sequels and a crappy TV reboot, THE NICE GUYS should be awarded the same. Except it probably won't, because this is 2016 and…

  • Finders Keepers

    Finders Keepers 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 12 May, 2016

    Stop me if you've heard this one - a guy buys a delinquent storage unit, and inside finds a smoker grill containing a mummified, amputated human leg.

    You will not find a better expression of Pure Cinema in the action genre than Mad Max: Fury Road.

    I loved every single beautiful, insane and exhilarating frame of this movie. This is the Mad Max series reborn in the most over-the-top, mythic fashion possible, delivering the biggest and best action sequences we have seen in years, while somehow also not forgetting to…

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 30 Apr, 2015 1

    While not supplanting Winter Soldier as my favorite (that's gonna be REALLY hard to do), Age of Ultron nonetheless is, to me, the ultimate promise of the MCU, fulfilled. This is the most "comic booky" comic book movie I have ever seen. Watching it actually replicates how it feels to read the big Marvel crossover events, thanks in large part to an episodic story structure that actually feels like a series of individual issues, but also thanks to just how…
