Thor: The Dark World
2 years ago via Movies on Android tablet

Thor's sophmore solo outing is much more action packed and has much more Asgard than the original. Thor seems to have lost all of his character an ego from the first film, which is a shame. The same can't be said about Loki though. He was the life of the movie for what little screen time he had. You would just swear that Thor was shot with a tranquilizer before every scene. It feels like Hemsworth (Thor) doesn't even want to be in this film.
Minor gripes aside, this movie looks beautiful! Asgard is brimming with life. This movie really puts special effects to good use. People looking for action will also not be disapointed, because "The Dark World" packs a punch. The original Thor from 2011 was much more grounded and character driven whereas this entry is much more visual and magical.
This will definitely tide Marvel fans over until the next Marvel movie comes out this summer. "Thor: The Dark World" is one of the better solo Marvel movies to date.

Godzilla (2014)
2 years ago via Movies on Android tablet

After the 1998 movie that destroyed the Godzilla name and series, the U.S. got another shot at bringing the giant lizard to the big screen. It plays out as a half human drama disaster movie, half super giant monster beat-down movie. It definitely succeeds on the later half. the CGI for the monsters is some of the best ever seen. The last third of the movie is where all the build up finally pays off in full. This is definitely one of the best Godzilla movies ever made. The sequel can't come soon enough!

Non-Stop (2014)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It is no "Taken" but it is a great thriller, if not a "one time watch". The movie's main downfall is how great of a mystery it is, but only to figure out that this can't be watched again. There is also a really awesome move by Liam Neeson towards the end of the movie. Screw gravity, that was awesome!

The LEGO Movie
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The animation was top notch. Animation has not had such a breakthrough since "Toy Story". The premise is really amusing. It brings back memories of creating stories and conflicts out of using toys as a kid. It is a really realistic interpretation of what goes inside a childs imagination while playing with his toy box.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

Definitely one of the most imaginative movie I have ever seen. Jim Carrey is a surprisngly good fit for his character. His and Kate Winslet's chemistry is amazing.
