Breaking with Blomkamp’s usual format of first a an hour of social commentary, and then a heist movie, Chappie reveals the heist setup after just a few minutes, and then turns into a growing-up drama in robot form. I think Neill tries to ask the same sort of questions that Blade Runner throws around, but it doesn’t work. And it’s really quite annoying. Too bad. I hope this doesn’t signal a permament change of direction for Blomkamp.
Actual science fiction that isn’t boring for once.
Wow! Four out of five! That was unexpected!
Seems like a run-of-the-mill chase-flick at first, but then suddenly sprouts a very catchy twist indeed. Feels kinda like an old Carpenter-movie. Best watched unspoiled, so steer clear of plot synopses and the like. More, please!
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Brilliant! Now I want to see LotR again…
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Perhaps a little rich on spider clichés.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
I don’t understand why this has gotten such a bad rap. It’s not up there with LoTR, but it hits all the marks AFAIAC.

If you don’t love the Blues Brothers, you don’t love life…
