The trailer is enthralling to watch.

Here's the trailer: link
Wow the trailer looks good.

If you really liked Outrage, there's a sequel for it, Outrage Beyond. I heard good things about it as well.

Elite Squad: The Enemy Within

Trailer

A Brazilian Wire meets The Departed about police crime and corruption to the nth degree, and taking place largely in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, this focuses on one cop's(the head of Brazilian SWAT) attempts to clean it all up.

Easier said than done though as it seems everyone is in the pocket of someone else, from other cops to politicians to thugs, etc. First time I think I've ever seen someone pulling teeth out of skull after they had just set fire to the person to whom they belonged - all nonchalantly too.

If you're into layered crime/dramas action-thriller types, check it out. It's also worth noting that even though this is a sequel, it can be taken as a stand-alone film. You don't need to have seen the first, but you should because it's just as good.

8.8/10

I've seen outrage beyond, and it's not as good as Outrage. Actually was kinda disappointed by it.

I would have liked the movie a lot more if the female love interest was more like able.

Blue Ruin

Trailer

This possibly slightly autistic guy who's been living as a vagabond/drifter for a couple years or so, finds out that the guy who killed a couple people close to him is out on a technicality or something, so he's out for vengeance.

Dude is awkward as **** handling weapons, and being violent and threatening in general. Think along the lines of Jameer being with a girl and you have an idea what I mean. Out of his element pretty bad.

What violence is there is pretty graphic, and the movie is well-made and acted, but it's also a slow-burner. A little too slow IMO, but the payoff was worth it.

7/10

I normally don't mention stuff that I didn't see in the theatre, particularly stuff that's mainstream. I mean if I stumble on something on Netflix, or it's something I didnt' have an opportunity to see on a big screen that's one thing.

But I made the concious choice to watch Pacific Rim yesterday. I'm not a summer blockbuster kind of a dude generally speaking, but I had been intrigued by PR at it's release. I like that it was a new idea, I like that it had invented it's own history. I've always liked Del Toro. And there were a handfull of cast members who I have varying levels of appreciation for.

Anyway, I found it quite enjoyable. I like that it seeminly closed it's storyline. Some of the action was a little muddled looking to me, but the overall aesthetic, with the sort of neon landscape, overcrowded dystopian metropolis, and the look of keiju's, with their blue irrodecent goop, all pretty cool.

I'd give it a high 70s, maybe low 80s, which is a pretty big number for an effects heavy summer blockbuster type action flick.

I'm also looking forward to this new Godzilla.

Robocop


Pretty decent sci-fi actioner that tentatively dips its toes into the metaphysical, but to me felt like it lacked a little heart. Which is sorta ironic I suppose.

6.5/10
