Here we are; I have written my top 5 movies of the past few years. In no particular order here they are.
Man of Steel (Rating. *****) Cast. Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon. Dir. Zack Snyder. Writer. David S. Goyer
You have no idea how much of a Superman/Man of Steel fan I am. Don’t get me wrong originals and the remake a few years ago are down in people’s opinions, but I have always been a die-hard fan, I don’t mind. I even have all the corny black and white episodes starring George Reeves. AWESOME! Now I am noting going to tell you about my cuttings out and pyjamas. But I went to see this movie in the cinema, a thug can dress up as geek for once in his life and this was the time. From start to finish my mouth was opened, not only to throw popcorn in but I was put in a shock of pure amazement. I recommend this movie and everyone I tell to watch it, haven’t came back to me and said “Tried to watch it, had to leave.” So this is an ultimate film, I suggest you watch and do your research if you love the movie, it goes way back decades.
Evil Dead (Rating. ***) Cast. Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci. Dir/Writer. Fede Alvarez
Okay, this is a remake. I am rather sceptical about horror remakes now that Hollywood has got a grudge against the horror industry and want to tear it apart with their SGI and airbrushing talent. IT’S GRITTY, ITS SUPPOSE TO BE THAT WAY, LEAVE IT ALONE, DICKS! Where would we be if Ash from the original didn’t have that out-of-this-world attitude, Groovy! Then load up a shotgun. But here we are, I sat there getting drunk at my friend’s house and I was silently making notes when this movie came on. And…. I was rather shocked… They did a good job. It is its own movie, but I am pretty sure that is Ash’s old run down car sitting out front the cabin, near the start. The blood and storyline were rather good. A few things could have been better. More Comedy: The face on book of the dead: Nakedness (Always get a thumbs up for that): But was a good remake, I can’t believe I just said that.

Avengers Assemble (Rating. *****) Cast. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson. Dir/Writer. Joss Whedon
Yes, I know, I know. But you and I know both know I had to have this movie in here. Not because I a complete nerd. But I loved the characters and the introduction to some others. The Black Widow: Hawkeye: The Hulk: Ironman: Captain America: Thor: Director Fury… Can’t forget, Phil. Our heroes take on Loki and his borrow army. But as huge characters have bigger egos, you know some conflicts will erupt. And just in time for an ultimate battle for all mankind with some laughs and some sacrifice. Ultimately be able to watch this again.
Fast & Furious 6 (Rating. *****) Cast. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson. Dir. Justin Lin. Writers. Chris Morgan, Gary Scott Thompson
Another one to the Fast and furious franchise. Yeah, 2 Fast 2 Furious and Tokyo Drift were branches from the original. But When Vin Diesel and the original cast signed back up for follow on movies. The buzz everywhere for these movies was epic. Now you are either a car lover, bad boy over, bad girl lover or just an overall lover of all things Ass-kickery. You will love these, GO OUT AND BY THEM! I promise you will love the soundtracks and high octane that is injected through your speakers. Cannot wait for Fast And Furious 7 with The Transporter driver himself, Jason Statham.
Warm Bodies (Rating. ****) Cast. Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Analeigh Tipton. Dir/Writer. Jonathan Levine. Novel by Isaac Marion
Now I know this is a corny movie. But I am a secret night-time fan of the Rom-Com. This is a movie where zombies have taking over the world and there is only a band of humans left only trying to live. When R and Julie (Romeo and Juliette, Yes, I found that funny.) Find each other R slowly finds his humanity again. It is a great movie for the girlfriend or just for a couple of giggles. But I have always loved the idea of love conquering all.
Rise of the Guardians.
