70 38% Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F (2024) - Rated 04 Jul 2024
"The first 40 or so minutes are about as successful as any playing the hits belated sequel could possibly be. After that, it's alright."
79 62% Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga (2024) - Rated 27 Jun 2024
"C - Spectacular. There's an amazing run of stunning action scenes. Goes on just a bit too long, and slightly runs out of steam by the end, but it's some journey. Anya Taylor-Joy is an action star."
63 20% Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982) - Rated 08 Jun 2024
"Truly don't know what to make of this one."
85 80% Hit Man (2024) - Rated 08 Jun 2024
68 30% Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes (2024) - Rated 31 May 2024
"C - Chekhov's seawall."
60 15% Logan (2017) - Rated 26 May 2024
"I'm pretty burned out on superhero films, but enjoyed parts of this. I'm a big fan of films acknowledging their influences, and showing us the characters watching Shane before immediately moving into a Shane pastiche tickled me. Ultimately though, if you've seen one Wolverine storyline, you've seen them all. A lot more beheadings than your typical Marvel film."
65 25% Rooster Cogburn (1975) - Rated 26 May 2024
74 49% Civil War (2024) - Rated 26 May 2024
"C - Great action scenes, interesting enough premise. For all that, the film doesn't have much to say. Definitely about the journey and not the destination."
82 75% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) - Rated 26 May 2024
"R - Just a classic war film really. Deliberate echoes of The Bridge On The River Kwai, The Great Escape, Apocalypse Now, and many more."
85 80% Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) - Rated 26 May 2024
