Deadpool

Mild spoilers. Nothing serious.

I have been looking forward to this film for a long time (though not as long as Ryan Reynolds has).

I love Deadpool. He was my introduction to comic books and he’s just awesome. His humour, creativity, mercenary skills, R-rating, general quirkiness, and deep seated self-hatred all come together to create the perfect Mary Sue for everyone to love. Any shortcomings are overlooked because he can, has, and will break the fourth wall, making him interesting on a whole other level. He’s like Batman but with less money and more personality.

The Big Short

Disclaimer: The movie I just saw had a lot of swearing in it, so you can rest assured this post will, too.

How To Make Winning Feel Bad – an alternate film title.

Well I’m scared to shit.

I’m twenty-one years old. I still haven’t completed my university degree. My subject of study is freakin’ Creative Writing. I know fuck-all about Wall Street. So keep that in mind when reading what I’m about to say about The Big Short. Continue reading

Bridge of Spies

No Spoilers!

Ah, look. WordPress has just wished me a Happy Anniversary because I signed up with them one year ago. My counter is showing 1 hour to go before it’s been a year to the day this blog first went up. When I post this it’ll probably be up. But I’ll talk more about that another time.

I’m going to review Bridge of Spies tonight. Continue reading

Crimson Peak

No spoilers until halfway. I'll let you know.

Do you like victorian drama? Do you like gothic themes? Do you like predictability? Do you think Tom Hiddleston is sexy? If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of the above, this film is for you!

Crimson Peak, directed by Guillermo del Toro, is freaky yet predictable–but you don’t mind at all watching it. Usually a predictable film will put me off, no matter how great everything else is. This wasn’t the best film I’d ever seen and it’s not going to get crazy praise from me, but I liked it when I didn’t think I would which is more than can be said for many films.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

A Russian, an American, and a Brit walk into a bar…

I don’t know what I expected when I sat down in the movie theatre, but The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (Directed by Guy Ritchie) delivered something great. The film is set in the 1960s in the midst of the Cold War and follows a Russian and American spy with an amusing rivalry who are forced to work together and a bright British mechanic who’s father the spies are trying to get to.

Everything Before Us

I’ve talked about Wong Fu Productions before in a Weeklies post. They have been doing short films and videos for longer than YouTube has existed. I first found their channel way back in 2008 and they have consistently delivered quality entertainment. Now they’re moving on to bigger things: their first feature film.

I liked it. Wong Fu have their own artistic style which definitely showed in this film. It’s no big blockbuster, but it’s better than a lot of films that have much bigger budgets.  Continue reading

Mad Max: Fury Road

No Spoilers. Sort of. I don't think there are, anyway. Not what I would categorize as spoilers, at least.

I’ve finally seen Mad Max: Fury Road.

I can’t be the only one to think of a KISS concert in this scene.

The film hit the ground running and sprinted towards the credits. There’s barely a moment when you aren’t holding onto something: your face, your chair, your stomach, your breath. This was an action film of epic proportions.
