    Crying Freeman

    ★★★½

    Crying Freeman is from '95, but, glorious 90s suits aside, feels far more akin to something from the end of the 80s, very early 90s action cycle.
    Chock full of incredibly over-wrought, melodramatic, dialogue, wonderful slow-mo flying-through-the-air-while-spinning-and-shooting shots and more.
    I love it.

    ★★★½

    re-watch triggered by sending someone an "I volunteer" gif in IM.
    holds up pretty well, in fact i think i enjoyed it far more this time around, really digging the visual style now.

    ★★★★

    The best , most scary, thing since, well, ever? Nope. Well shot, nicely crafty, unsettling at times and, yes, scary? Yup.

    Also, for the first 2/3 of the film that little kid was in a dead heat with the girl from Jurassic Park for "Most Annoying Child on Screen Ever".

    X-Men: Apocalypse

    ★★½

    Not the garage fire I was lead to believe it was, it's still "good". Far, far too long, there's a really fun, interesting film buried in here somewhere. Maybe​ under Oscar Isaac's make up.
