Riddick
Riddick (2013)
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

A wasted opportunity to really explore Riddick as a serious sci-fi icon. Actually less satisfying than Chronicles of Riddick which at least gave us a sense that there was something in his backstory. A definite reboot feeling to this film and, for me, reboots fail because they often involve jettisoning everything, even relevant character development, in their desperation to achieve the impact of the first film.

Pain & Gain
Pain & Gain (2013)
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

When I saw the trailers I thought, depressingly, this was going to be Michael Bay's attempt at doing a Seth Rogen / Jonah Hill / Jason Segel type comedy - a genre which is no longer at all fresh or even funny. Thankfully, it is not at all that type of film and incredibly Michael Bay has put together a smart, funny and quite gripping movie. His normally slightly irritating bombastic style actually works perfectly in bringing this fact based, but still ridiculous, story to the screen. An excellent cast with Dwayne Johnson showing he is far more capable and actor than his one dimensional character in the Fast and Furious franchise allows.

I didn't think CGI could actually smash my brain into a pulp. I was wrong

A Good Day To Die Hard
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

By far and away the worst of the Die Hard films. Vacationing New York cop John McClane punches civilians, steals cars and smashes up the property of anyone silly enough to get between him and a heart warming reconcilliation with his bizarrely unattractive son. Once off the clock it would appear that all morality goes out the window and the law is irrelevant. We no longer have the average Joe cop up against a superior enemy and forced to use his wits and courage to overcome them. Instead we have been served up a bullet proof, indestructible video game character bulldozing his was through a mass of CGI car chases, faceless enemies and endless explosions, without even one introspective or interesting line to say throughout. Avoid - I wish I had.
