    Red Hill

    ★★★★

    Red Hill is ultimately the simple story of two good men colliding on a really bad day: a young police officer in the wrong place at the right time, and a recently escaped convict on a quest for bloody vengeance. As the reasons behind each man’s actions are slowly revealed, layers are added to this story transforming it from a cops-vs.-robbers shooter into a gritty, satisfying tale of determination and courage. Ryan Kwanten gives a standout performance here — and that’s despite his character getting knocked unconscious three different times.

    Final Grade: B+

    The Host

    ★★★★½

    Despite the somewhat over-the-top performance of the actor playing the distraught father and the slightly disappointing ending, this is a great horror movie. Its minor flaws are easily overlooked given the terrific story and the rousing performances from the rest of the cast.

    Final Grade: A-

    Toy Story

    ★★★★★

    Toy Story came along and made it ok for adults to love cartoons again. It's a terrific movie: clever script, great voice-acting, sentimental story, plenty of laughs - the whole "feel good" package.

    Very fun and enjoyable remake (or reboot, or whatever you want to call it!).
