From 2011, Hanna tells the tale of a girl named Hanna funnily enough,she has been engineered by the government to be a ruthless killing machine (imagine a tiny Wolverine *Cough X-23 cough*but with a sunny disposition and no eyebrows.) She has been brought up in a remote land by her father, who has trained her in combat, survival skills and everything required to be a total badass. 428 more words

Atonement [2007)

English films are, on the whole, dreadfully boring.  I almost didn’t make it past the first 20 minutes, but I’m very glad I did.  Joe Wright has the directorial ability to make even this vapid setting come to life…eventually. 545 more words
