Eschewing the straight-laced (and sadly often boring) grindhouse aesthetic of its predecessor, Machete Kills dives headlong into off-the-wall comedy like it probably should have done in the first place. It’s still way too long and the energy considerably flags towards the conclusion, but at least the laughs are fairly consistent throughout and there’s hardly anything that can be called a lull in the action and gags.

There’s no mistaking Turbo for anything other than a fairy tale fantasy aimed squarely at the young, but there’s something incredibly winsome about it that other films these days miss entirely. It’s genuine and free of any sense of irony.
Fast & Furious 6 somehow manages to clear the already high bar set by the series' previous entry in terms of action and excitement. It's also the best of the series and a darn good movie overall perfectly designed to give the audience exactly what they want. It's what this type of blockbuster filmmaking should always be like.
Resident Evil: Retribution sadly takes a turn for the worse despite some grand action sequences, strong female characters, and great use of 3D. It simply makes the storyline far too complicated for its own good; jerking the audience around like it’s… well… a bad video game.
Do you like modern war movies, gritty action, alien invasions, Aaron Eckhart and (most importantly) do you really really like over-the-shoulder shaky cam? Do you not care for things like original dialogue, plotting, or characters? If this describes you, then Battle: Los Angeles is what you should be watching right now.
