  • Good Time

    Good Time

    ★★★★½

    The night is dangerous and anything can happen. Good Time is the kind of meandering crime film I've been wanting for a long time now. It is wholly unique both in regards to the execution of the material as well as the unending, underworld maze of obstacles that are created by and befall the protagonist played perfectly by Robert Pattinson.

    The filmmakers, the Safdie Brothers, are addicted to close-ups as they make up what feels like the true majority of…

    Blade

    ★★★½

    28th Watch of Hooptober 8!

    Criteria Satisfied: a film with a POC as the lead

    ------------------

    One of Marvel's earliest and unlikeliest of successes. Blade is a fun action/horror romp that's shortcomings are overcome by the magnetic presence of Wesley Snipes.

    Given the time in which this was made, this is hampered by some incredibly dated CGI and sound effects. Still, the set pieces more often than not make up for this. A prime example being the incredible opening nightclub…

    The Mummy

    ★★★½

    27th Watch of Hooptober 8!

    Criteria Satisfied: a Hammer Film

    ------------------

    Another quality film from Terence Fisher! The Mummy isn't quite on the level of the likes of Dracula or either of the first two Frankenstein films, but it does prove one again that the triumvirate that is Fisher, Cushing and Lee is unmatched in terms of delivering engrossing, classically sensed horror.

    My only real complaint here is the repetitive nature that the plot takes on come the middle, but…

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    One of the greatest action films I've ever seen. I am still in awe of the pulse pounding adrenaline that unapologetically makes up the entire film. There is literally almost no down time in this movie. Seriously, action every second. We start by seeing Max quickly have everything taken from him. After that...madness. The villains are insane. George Miller's world of Mad Max is so well fleshed out. It is imaginative, inventive and breathtaking. The incredible cinematography switches between a…

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★★

    Here it is ladies and gentlemen. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is perhaps the most divisive movie I've ever seen/been a part of. Both critics and fans are contending why this was an achievement or an utter failure. I have to say though that I enjoyed this. I'm not checking this one as "Contains Spoilers" simply on the grounds that most of this was made known in the trailers or was ruined by critic click bait headlines. Don't worry…
