    The Raid 2

    ★★★★★

    Having seen countless reviews I got the distinct impression it was top heavy in boring drama and the real kick ass action only happens in the last 20 to 30 minutes! It couldn't have been further from the truth! You couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting a phenomenal action sequence from beginning to end for it was riddled with it!

    Yes there was an attempt at developing a more complex storyline and fleshing out its characters! Evans was stuck…

    when the celestial bodies in the heavens lineup just so.. prophecy dictates that Aronofsky and I will suddenly be on the same page, then and only then will Cinematic Ecstasy be visited upon us!

    Give me a minute to compose myself.. I'm still basking in the afterglow ;-)

    In my not so humble opinion I found this to be Aronofsky's best film to date! It challenged me, a disarming exercise that spun me like a washing machine on spin cycle,…

    The best Indie film nobody has ever heard of.. about a young artist who is frustrated as he has yet to accomplish anything! He appears to channel his childhood! Going back to a time when creativity flowed freely and the impossible was possible, to reignite his passion for life and art he decides to build the ultimate maze inside his apartment!

    Once upon a time kids used to use their imaginations! We didn't have nintendo's or playstation's! No we got…

    Mans depths of depravity and exploitation of others knows no bounds! Superiority complex driven men dehumanizing and emotionally disemboweling a beautiful young African woman whose body does not conform to societal norms.. they do this for profit, for notoriety, for prestigious accolades of recognition among men of science!

    But more importantly they do this because they know they CAN! When society fails to grant all inclusive equal rights and protections for all the inevitable consequence sets those up without the…

    ★★★★★

    It would be easy to write director Dan Gilroy's (directorial debut) neo-noir crime thriller off as just another story about a sociopath when clearly it is about so much more! It is a scathing commentary on a corrupt media where ratings trumps the basic principles of ethics, integrity and morals!

    "If it bleeds it leads" mentality reflects man's primal bloodlust! We've essentially replaced gladiators slaughtering Christians in Roman arena's with the network news!

    And if you take it one step…

  • Edge of Tomorrow

    Edge of Tomorrow

    ★★★★

    Went in with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised by how clever and entertaining it turned out to be!

    One part Groundhog Day, one part Starship Troopers! Tom Cruise is getting a little long in the tooth but he proved he's still got it!

    Only gripe was the anticlimactic ending!

    Naughty Approved!
