    American Assassin

    ★★½

    Like a prequel to Bourne Identity or Jack Reacher; efficiently executed, only wish the ‘bad guys’ weren’t the cliched ‘middle eastern terrorist’. So played.

    ★★★

    Heartfelt story about the morality of how humanity treats animals & nature. 

    The girl is awesome; the feeling you're left with in the end is not.

    The Nice Guys

    ★★★★

    A delightful romp that's a refreshing throwback to the action buddy cop movies from the 80s... Set in the 70s!

    As always Ryan Gosling steals the show, in a cast where everyone was almost as good.

  • Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

    ★★

    Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon was a beautiful living work of art with gorgeous cinematography and eye-watering fight sequences.

    Sword of Destiny feels like uninspired cash in on that movie's good name.

    at least there's a lot of action, though lack-luster and mundane action, to at least keep it somewhat watchable.
