4/5 79% Ant-Man (2015) "The film does take some time getting up to speed as it is after all an introduction story but with the pleasant comedy and great FX mixing with a satisfying final act, "Ant-Man", is yet another winner for Marvel. " ‐ Skewed and Reviewed
Posted Jul 17, 2015
4/5 54% Minions (2015) "The film takes a bit of time to get up to speed but is as charming and funny as you would wish for. The Minions generate plenty of laughs and there are tons of Pop Culture gags that fill the entire film. " ‐ Skewed and Reviewed

4/5 26% Terminator Genisys (2015) "The action is solid from an epic bus chase to intense firefights across the timelines the film grabs your attention the way the best summer films do and takes you on an epic thrill ride. " ‐ Skewed and Reviewed

4/5 71% Jurassic World (2015) ""Jurassic World" is a welcome return to the franchise, one that for me is the first true sequel to the original as I enjoyed it more than the two films that followed. " ‐ Skewed and Reviewed
Posted Jun 12, 2015
4/5 33% Entourage (2015) "The big draw is Piven, as he commands every scene that he is in.

" ‐ Skewed and Reviewed

4/5 98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Fury Road is a lavish spectacle that is one non-stop ride of intensity that is as my wife put it, "pushing me so far back into my seat that I am almost in the row behind us". " ‐ Skewed and Reviewed

Posted Nov 14, 2014
3/5 29% Autómata (2014) "The film is very good for budget Science Fiction as the FX work is first rate. This is a take with humanity at its core, and Banderas does solid work. " ‐ Skewed and Reviewed
