Cold Pursuit

Revenge Is a Dish Best Served Cold and Darkly Fun

Liam Neeson has said that Cold Pursuit would be his last action movie. I don't see how that's possible when you can have as much fun as he has - whether in Taken or The Grey or Non-Stop or, yes, Cold Pursuit. This is a film that revels in its absurdity but doesn't shy away from violence. I mean, the main character is named Coxman, and yes, that name is the butt of jokes as the movie goes on.

Neeson is a humble snow plow driver, Nels Coxman, for a Denver resort city who has just been named …

Skyscraper (2018)

Toothless DIE HARD rip-off w/o any creativity.

Dwayne Johnson is one of the most likable and reliable action stars working today in Hollywood. However strange or silly his movies became, you were willing to suspend your disbelief because he's just that charismatic. It's a useful tool to hide the otherwise craven cynicism of film studios.
Unfortunately SKYSCRAPER is the first Dwayne Johnson movie in a long time that felt so completely unoriginal that not even Johnson could cover it up. Not only is it one of the most brazen rip-offs I saw …

Short Circuit

I have fond memories of this movie since it was a childhood movie, but finding out the Indian guy wasn't actually Indian was kinda disappointing. I mean, seriously.

Shoplifters ( Manbiki kazoku )

In my opinion, Japan is the least likely to use poverty as the backdrop of a story among Asian cinema, but when they do, it perfectly captures the human condition of this marginalized sector.

Primal Rage

It certainly is one of the better monster flicks.

So you’re telling me right here,
right now to my face,
that you actually believe there’s an Oh-Mah out there?

Admittedly, “Primal Rage” certainly won’t win the prize for the most original film. And there are some pain points to be found in this B-film. But to my surprise, I liked this movie anyway. The well-known theme about an unknown creature hiding in the woods and racking up random victims. Take “Animal” and add some “Predator” elements to it and you can already imagine what you get …

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

One of my favorite films of the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Very interesting plot and characters, and loved how the characters were consistent. Very amazing effects and adventure, with enough humor and entertainment. The old characters, Will Turner was returned in an unique way. One of my favorite movies of all time.

Only God Forgives

The movie was very good from a visual standpoint. Scenery, lighting, shot angles and compositions were spectacular. It also had a very good score. Unfortunately all this was wasted on a very boring story about some very bad people that I could not care any less about and simply put did not need to be told. Kind of a bummer in that regard.

Avengers: Infinity War

"Avengers: Infinity War" by Yojimbo

Thanos reaches Earth in his quest to possess the six all-powerful “Infinity Stones” and indiscriminately exterminate half of all life in the universe.

Infinity War is the destination of pretty much all of the previous MCU movies so far; this is the story it’s all been leading up to and attempts to tie up all of the relevant threads from Captain America: The First Avenger through to Thor: Ragnarok. Readers of Marvel comics will be very familiar with the formula as it is very much a cinematic …
