    The Last Witch Hunter 2015

    ★★½ Watched 22 Jun, 2016

    not "good" per say, but definitely fun.
    There's a lot of interesting ideas and visual here (I especially love the flashbacks to viking era Vin Diesel), but not enough story to get through to the end.
    The film is obviously set up a the start of a franchise (that I can't imagine being green lit), but a friend recommended viewing the film as though Vin Diesel's immortal character eventually kills all the world's evil witches, moves to space, and becomes Riddick. That works for me.

    I need to see this again to fully absorb what is going on in this beautiful film, but that will be no chore.

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Apr, 2015

    The best , most scary, thing since, well, ever? Nope. Well shot, nicely crafty, unsettling at times and, yes, scary? Yup.

    Also, for the first 2/3 of the film that little kid was in a dead heat with the girl from Jurassic Park for "Most Annoying Child on Screen Ever".

  • The November Man

    The November Man 2014

    ★★½ Watched 21 Aug, 2014

    Old distinguished Bourne vs young good-looking Bourne.
    Fun enough, if highly derivative spy action-thriller.
    Nice to see an older guy kicking butt but not looking like a 'roided out monster.
