    Suicide Squad

    ★★½

    I have to say I was rather disappointed in the latest DCEU entry, Suicide Squad. This has to be one of the most pointless films I've seen in some time, which is sad because for all its faults, at least Batman v Superman had ambition and lofty goals, even if it had a hard time explaining why or what it was going for.

    Green Room

    ★★★★

    Proving once again he's a talent to watch, Jeremy Saulnier takes nihilism to the extreme in his latest horror gem, Green Room.

    John Wick

    ★★★★

    Keanu Reeves is back! Yes, yes, I know what you’re thinking. Last year he was in both 47 Ronin and Man of Tai Chi, and in 2012 he produced the excellent documentary Side by Side. But this time he really is back! Like kicking ass in a suit with slicked-back hair back! And it’s freakishly cool!

    John Wick is a smart, modern action film that’s a bit of a throwback of sorts to the adult action films from the 80’s…
