    Creed

    ★★★★½

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

    The seventh Rocky film is most definitely is best, something I never thought I would say. Creed is spectacular and, possibly, the best soft-reboot I've seen short of Casino Royale. The one-shot fight with Sporino is quite easily the best shot fight scene I have ever watched and the highlight of the film. If we're going to be moving forward without Rocky (which seems likely given what happens in the film), I am confident that Michael B. Jordan was the right choice to lead the series going forward.

    This movie is fantastic and I highly, highly recommend you go see it.

    Fantastic Four

    ★½

    I keep hearing people talk about how poor the third act is. My question for those people is... what third act? This movie was missing an entire chunk of story

    Terminator Genisys

    ★★★½

    Definitely the best Terminator film since Judgement Day and a fairly enjoyable film. I was worried, but it pulled through.

    A few thoughts:
    1. Stop trying to make Jai Courtney happen, Hollywood. Let him disappear like Sam Worthington did.
    2. Can we set a movie in and destroy cities other than San Francisco? It's getting a little absurd.
    3. Please make JK Simmons the action star happen, Hollywood.
    4. I never imagined I'd say it, but I think Arnold Schwarzenegger…

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron

    ★★★½

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

    Age of Ultron wasn't quite as good as the first, but it was still quite enjoyable.

    I really liked the dynamic Whedon went with here. Whereas the first Avengers film was all about the Avengers finding each other and what they can do, Age of Ultron was all about -why- they are Avengers and what makes them special. Whedon put a bit of focus on why Hawkeye and Black Widow, completely normal (in the films at least with Romanov) assassins are worthy and why, perhaps, they are more important than the god or the robots or the super human.
