Review - Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Submitted by petrocs on March 31, 2014 - 8:17am


 

If I was to choose one word to describe the ninth installment into the Marvel Cinematic Universe I would chose EPIC. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a game changing movie in every sense of the word. It is not only a follow up to the largely successful Captain America: The First Avenger and Joss Whedon's phenomenal ensemble picture, The Avengers, but it is the third picture in Marvel's Phase 2 which also included Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World. As with Marvel's Phase 1, the events in each picture have a direct correlation to Marvel Cinematic Universe which will ultimately lead us to The Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2016.

We continue the story of Steve Rogers (Evans), also known as Captain America, two years after the events of New York. Steve now resides in Washington DC, where, along side fellow Avenger Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow (Johansson), he works for Nick Fury (Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D. The events of New York have had a direct impact on Rogers psyche and have allowed for the continued struggles that have plagued Steve Rogers to maintain a normal life. We open with Cap and Natasha on a mission with a S.H.I.E.L.D commando squad as they attempt to complete a mission of saving hostages on a sea freight carrier. As the mission takes shape, Cap realizes not everything is as it appears.

Review: Sabotage

Submitted by petrocs on March 29, 2014 - 6:05pm


 

Just two years ago director David Ayer presented us with End of Watch, a gripping police drama that was hailed as Ayer's best film to date. A directing career that looked like it was heading in the right direction was sidetracked when Ayer presented the world with his worst film to date. Working on creating a script with Skip Woods, a writer whose credits include such turds as A Good Day to Die Hard, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and Hitman was probably not the best idea as a follow up to your crowning achievement. Add to the mix aging actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose eight year absence from acting has put the "Austrian Oak" in high demand, but has yet to result in box office success. Sabotage seems to be more appropriate as a metaphor for the careers of the people involved in making this film. Sabotage is a classic case of one of those films that on the surface appears to have all the right pieces in place to make a great blockbuster movie, but fails in its execution.

Review: Benedikt Erlingsson's 'Of Horses and Men' Is a Fascinating Look at Rural Icelandic Culture

Submitted by Spirit of the Thing on March 27, 2014 - 8:07am


 

Rare is it that a film from exotic Iceland makes it mainland here in the US. I've seen a few, best among them The Seagull's Laughter and especially Noi Albinoi (or Noi the Albino for you Yanks). Because those that I've seen are so good, I try to catch them when they do hit our shores. Of Horses and Men fits well into the group with the above two mentioned.
