  • RoboCop

    RoboCop

    ★★★★

    Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop is a lot of things: an exciting, hard-R blood drenched action film, a scathing and often funny satire on American capitalism where everyone is a dispensable product, and a Jesus allegory about death and resurrection.

    As a kid it was one of my first forays into hard adult action cinema, and I was both delighted and traumatized at Murphy's gore-drenched execution and Milo getting melted by toxic waste.

  • The New York Ripper

    The New York Ripper

    ★★★

    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…
