Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

If you can sit through the entire film without getting severely distracted by Chris Evan’s pecs and the flowing lock of Sebastian Stan, you will find “Winter Soldier” to be a vastly superior instalment to the first “Captain America” in every way possible and the best Marvel film since the original “Iron Man” thanks to its unique blend of contemporary American politics and the pulpy mythology of its main character, resulting in a zippy espionage thriller that’s filled with explosive wonder from start to finish.

Walking with the Enemy [2014 Film]

Well, the third trailer for this film came out earlier today, and I’m looking forward to it. It’s a bit reminiscent of Schindler’s List - however, that film being a far more emotionally motivated film now, there’s a chance this film could be something quite unique. 164 more words

Andy Warhol.
