    The Magnificent Seven

    ★★★

    Bit of a forgettable popcorn western. There's nothing visionary about this project -- no vital moments that say "*this* is why we needed a remake" --but it has a strong, diverse cast that at least makes it mildly interesting. You can't go wrong with any of these seven, though for my money it was Vincent D'Onofrio who was most entertaining.

    Harmless, I guess, but nothing to go out of your way to watch.

    This is the most batshit insane film I have ever seen.

    Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead

    ★★★★

    Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead is the type of movie that will rip your arm off, pull your intestines out and then run you over with a tank — just because it can. Set immediately after the original film’s ending (there is a quick primer first just in case you need a refresher on what happened), it’s clear right away just what this much-anticipated sequel has in store. The budget is much bigger, the cast is larger, and the special effects are significantly improved. This is Dead Snow cranked to 11.

    Bullhead

    ★★★★

    Was not expecting this to be so depressing. A fascinating character study of someone who suffered an incredibly traumatic experience as a boy, and now struggles to maintain a normal life. Bullhead has an amazing performance from Matthias Schoenaerts in the lead role, someone I was unfamiliar with beforehand. This one got a well-deserved Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language Film last year.
