    Dead Snow

    ★★

    If given the choice between fighting off a bloodthirsty gang of Nazis zombies and watching Dead Snow again, I'd rather take my chances with the Nazi zombies. An unmitigated attack on my senses as well as intelligence, Dead Snow is what I like to call a lowest common dominator film made by a lowest common dominator filmmaker.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    ★★★★

    For all intents and purposes this film should've been called Star Wars: History Repeats Itself. The reason being is that the plot to The Force Awakens offers more then just a passing resemblance to A New Hope, so much so that I damn near check marked the "I've seen this film before" option even though I hadn't. It seems that in his never-ending quest to please the rabid Star Wars fan base, director J.J. Abrams felt the need to adhere…
