Posted Aug 21, 2015
3/5 47% American Ultra (2015) " it has no problem exploring absurdity in all this manifestations, and doing so with forthright violence of which Sam Peckinpah would be proud, and an existential nausea that might give Sartre pause. " ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 99% Shaun the Sheep (2015) "For all the raucous, and beautifully choreographed slapstick, the best comedy comes from the characters themselves in a story that allows for exquisitely hilarious small moments that are the equal, if not the better, of the bigger ones " ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

Posted Jun 6, 2015

Posted May 23, 2015

Posted Oct 3, 2014
