  • Hail, Caesar!

    Hail, Caesar! 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 06 Feb, 2016

    Hail, Caesar isn't so much a Coen Brothers movie as it is the Coen Brothers making ALL the movies. I remember a few years ago I had what I thought was a brilliant idea. What if there was a movie that followed one character through one story, but every 15 minutes or so the movie completely changed genres? Well, what do you know...the Coen's have now more-or-less made that movie. And they did a better job of it than I…

  • The Boy

    The Boy 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Feb, 2016

    A studio horror film about a haunted doll, released in January, from the guy who made Stay Alive and The Devil Inside.

    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…
