    Total Recall

    ★½

    I've been meaning to rewatch this, because I always feel like I'm missing something, and the next time I watch it, I'll suddenly appreciate it..but...no, haha.

    Douglas Quaid is a miner who has a beautiful wife and dreams of an adventure on Mars, so he goes to Rekall, a company that can implant false memories and let you live an exciting dream life as an agent on Mars for a brief period of time. But something goes wrong and he…

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★★★½

    I don't think superhero films should be comedies, history has proven that they work so much better as thrillers. And that's why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favourite Marvel film to date, possibly even more so than The Avengers.

    When someone threatens to cause major damage to S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America has to rethink everything he knows - already trying to adapt to the 21st century, he's making new friends and meeting old ones, thinking of partners lost and…
