    Kick-Ass

    ★★★

    Kick-Ass is full of stupid moments and comedy cliches, but it still has some enjoyable moments. Nicolas Cage is great (as always) and the villains were particularly fun to watch. The fight scenes were stylish and had a kick to them, even if they weren't very well choreographed. Overall, Kick-Ass won't join the ranks of the best comedies of all time, but it's still pretty fun.

This is not a Star Wars film, it's a…

    ★★★★

    A 21st century sequel/reboot to a beloved and unique 80s movie that actually improves on the original in every way? How often does that happen?
    Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust is the best kind of sequel: it takes what the original did well (the worldbuilding, atmosphere, and action), and uses it as a starting point to do something new. The post-apocalyptic sci-fi/Gothic horror/gritty western setting of the original Vampire Hunter D is expanded on greatly, with new creatures, new settings, and…
