    Outlaw King

    ★★★

    Outlaw King tells the tale of how Scotland won their independence from the English in the 1300’s. We have seen a version of this story in the 1995 Academy Award winning movie Braveheart.  Outlaw King chooses to focus on how Sir Robert Bruce became the King of Scots, rather than on Sir William Wallace’s rebellion. It was a good idea to keep Wallace to a brief glimpse rather than someone attempting to do their best Mel Gibson impression.

    ★★★★

Well what if I told you that the Transvestite Thai Mob's Boss (who likes to shoot himself in the foot, literally, for no reason) was so obsessed with the autistic girl's…

    Mission: Impossible II

    ★★

    Ethan Hunt is back! (Kind of). Mission: Impossible 2 is a far cry from the first and has no place in the franchise. Instead of creative, clever, and thrilling, it gives you John Woo instead. A torturous plot combined with random, over-the-top, unrealistic, nonsensical action scenes. Filled with “Wait… what?!” scenes, M:I-2 could have been the disastrous end of the franchise.

    The first half of M:I-2 has a noticeably different feel, however, it is still salvageable as a decent movie.…
