Deadpool (2016) Review

Deadpool was done right. Like straight from the comics done right, nicely done guys. It’s ridiculously funny throughout with a great cast and characters to compliment the Merc with a mouth. The dialogue was equal parts hilarious, filled with pop culture and filthy, just how I like it. Even the action and visuals were pretty great considering the budget; they really worked within their means and it paid off.

“You even look in her direction, and I’ll show you that I’ve got some hard spots… that came out wrong… or did it?”

San Andreas (2015) Mini Review

Genuinely liked this more than I’d thought I would. Lot of action, great visuals and Dwayne was on point leading this film, come a long way since Scorpion King. The film had endless clichés but it didn’t enrage me as much as it normally does, my reasoning will be explained later. It has been a while since I’ve seen a good disaster film and this was good. I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

“That’s not the first time I landed on second base.” – HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Mini Review

Balls to the wall high octane edge of your seat relentless action death racing in a post-apocalyptic waste land. Well done George Miller. Not sure how you achieved this glorious level of action at 70 years of age or after directing three cheesy kids films. Glad you did though because this might be my favourite action film for at least 5 years. If it was done in this film it was done with perfection. I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

Avengers: The Age of Ultron (2015) Mini Review

The first half of this film is great but the second half really lets it down. What I am struggling with is whether it is that Age of Ultron is a good but flawed film or that in comparison to Marvels other recent films (Cap 2, Guardians) it just doesn’t match their quality. Ultron was a good villain, if an underused one. The avengers where handled well for the most part, hawk eye was especially well done. I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

“I was designed to save the world. People would look to the sky and see… hope. I think I’ll take that first.”

Chappie (2015) Mini Review

I was extremely critical of Blomkampf after Elysium, and no less so in preparation for this film. However I actually really liked it. He has redeemed himself in part to me anyway. Chappie has a message or two that really work. It’s not about the danger of AI, it’s about how dangerous humanity can be when faced with change. Or how innocence can be corrupted? Its got like five messages floating round. Just pick one and go with it.

I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

John Wick (2014) Mini Review

John Wick won’t be winning any awards anytime soon but it is a lot fun in 100 mins. Should be on DVD in most places so check it out. Kick ass action. Good visuals. And Keanu Reeves does a lot and says very little, just how I like him. Keep it up Keanu.

I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

Taken 3 (2015) Mini Review

First review of 2015!!! Tak3n haha that title. Ah January a time of year where good films do not tread. Taken 3 is awful. It’s really, really bad. Serious stinking mass of crap. These films have taken (ah!) a real dive since the first. Taken 1 great. Taken 2 alright but ludicrous. Taken 3 is lazy garbage, there is no excuse.

I’ll go into more detail below, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

The Raid 2: Berandal (2014) Review

Why didn’t I see this film sooner! The Raid 2 is just excellent, not only a great action martial arts film but a really well made gangster movie. The story was really clever and expanded a lot from the first film, we go right into the underground of the city and into the two crime families who run it. The visuals and choreography are masterful! We have car chases, great martial arts battles, big gun fights and all for under $5M. Gareth Evans who is a Brit or Welsh to be more specific. I did not see that coming, regardless he did an excellent job and I hope he gets to do a third, or just a lot more films. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

22 Jump Street (2014) Review

It’s really funny, easily on par with the first and the cast work perfectly with each other. It’s hard to pin point why these two films just work so well but this comedy sequel works because it is so ridiculously self-aware, there near a million references to the fact that this is a sequel. The visuals in this are great; all the side characters are on top form. And the film just has so many laugh out loud moments that you need to probably see a few times to get them all. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, if you have seen the film then just read because there are no spoilers in my comedy reviews.

Schmidt: “Right in the crack”

Snowpiercer (2014) Review

This is a very unique film and reviewing it is going to be quite hard. It’s a South Korean film with a mostly American and British cast, I was expecting there to be more Korean actors but it is limited to two who were in my opinion very strong. The acting is brilliant and especially from Chris Evans, not something I expected from the trailers and the subtle moments of dialogue really stand out in this film. The story and setting of this film is very weird and that’s how I like these films, good Sci-Fi idea with plenty of material such as Segregation and dystopian survival. The battles and action was pretty good and again totally bizarre as it all has to take place in cramped train carts. The visuals where decent, I’d say somewhere between a B movie and Blockbuster film. And the music wasn’t bad either. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

“Have you ever been alone on this train? When was the last time you were alone? You can’t remember, can you? So please do. Take your time.” Hard to find a quote that works without seeing the film. But you’ll get it soon.
