    Baked in Brooklyn

    Remarkably insufferable protagonist. At least there's the vicarious satisfaction of a scene where the screenwriter's namesake gets his ass kicked.

    What Happened to Monday


    A treat for those with a very specific affinity for Noomi Rapace having the opportunity to do a lot of stuff.

    Lone Survivor


    Taliban fighters are ignominiously dispatched in gloriously juicy splatters; our protagonist's comrades valiantly fall in majestic slow-motion. All that's missing are insert shots of awed, teary-eyed observers. Hooyah.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Second viewing; holds up great (aside from the obvious narrative holes such as Suspect With Biggest Axe To Grind Evading Suspicion In Abduction Of Vehicular Homicide Girl - though on the other hand, now that it's all the rage I look forward to the plot hole-filling prequel which valiantly explains how Lang's blind character might've sought her out and captured her in the first place). Firmly on #TeamPvtJoker with regards to Alvarez's facility in establishing the house's geography.
