    A Good Day to Die Hard

    ★★★★

    'Alright, let's go kill some motherfuckers'.

    I know it's universally slammed, but I don't care what anyone says, this is a fucking awesome action movie. If you genuinely love action movies, you'll love this. If you hate it, then with respect, you're not a true action movie fan.

    ★★

    A major letdown. All surface and no real depth, which is a shame as Mr. Rodgers was a genuinely great man, and he deserved a better movie than this. A few thoughts:

    As a big horror movie fan who loves the Halloween series, I was excited to see this, but it failed miserably on…

  • Kill List

    Kill List

    ★★★★

    Fantastic. One of the best British films in years, and just gets better every time I watch it. For some reason, it's criminally underrated, but given the subject matter, it's no surprise that 'Kill List' didn't get a wide cinema release.

    On the surface, the story seems simple: two (ex-military) hitmen take on a new assignment for a bunch of shady businessmen, but there's so much more to it than that. It starts off as one thing, but morphs genres…
