Age of Ultron is just another day at the office

How does one follow up a movie that is arguably the most entertaining display of blockbuster prowess in recent memory? How does the ever growing Marvel Cinematic Universe hold up these days? The answer is a straight forward and simple as it is beautiful: everybody is doing their job.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier – Review

Captain America: Winter Soldier

Written by: Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, based on the character by Joe Simon & Jack Kirby and a story by Ed Brubaker
Directed by: Anthony Russo & Joe Russo
Starring: Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo

Welcome to the 21st century, Cap.

Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to hit the ground running, much like (excuse the segue) Captain Steve Rogers does in The Winter Soldier. While the action scenes are much more influenced by Parkour as well as harder than they were before, the events here put the psyche of Captain America to an even harder test: How much can he take? And whom can he trust?

Wayhomer Review #172: Robocop (2014)

Joel Kinnaman as Robocop

'Well thank Christ for that...at least I have a real hand left so I can still unlock my iPhone 5S.'

It’s Episode #172 for Robocop (2014), in which our protagonist enjoys back story and setup as much as the next bearded lunatic who can drive, but really wants the story to just get underway. Also, he defends remakes (no, really)…and applauds the new black color scheme for Robocop. It’s just a sensible choice.

    Oldboy (2013) – 27 Second Review

    Josh Brolin from Oldboy (2013)

    Written by: Mark Protosevich, based on the manga by Garon Tsuchiya & Nobuaki Minegishi
    Directed by: Spike Lee
    Starring: Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Imperioli

    Review: Well, let’s just say it. This movie is fucked up. Those who have seen the original know that this is not something one refers to in a positive light. At least not without cringing. Americanized remakes will always have that extra hurdle to pass, and thanks to the cast and fight choreography (are you thinking The Hallway of Hammering? Because I am), this one passed muster. But now I’m going to go shower.

    Time: 21 seconds

    The Avengers (2012) – 27 Second Review

    Thor Avengers poster by Mondo

    Written by: Joss Whedon, based on a story by Zak Penn & Whedon, which was in turn based on the comic created by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby
    Directed by: Joss Whedon
    Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Clark Gregg, Tom Hiddleston

    Review: As a Batman Loyalist, I hesitate to say this is the greatest comic book movie of all time, but only for a second. Because it was the GREATEST comic book movie of all time. The action was awesome, no character was under-utilized, and there were four separate instances that made me fall out of my chair laughing with glee. Also because the Hulk is my spirit animal. See it, and be more awesome for it.

    Time: 20 seconds
