So, that was my Captain America weekend.

Was quite surprised to find that I didn't like either as much as I thought I did. They both have their plus points. The first being a fun throwback to pulpy action comics. And the second with it's tough surveillance thriller vibes.
And yet, for all they had going for them, found myself coming away bored by them. Call it superhero saturation or just the films themselves not doing much to be engaging. But another movie that tries to thrill you with dangers, yet you know the impeccable hero will walk away without a scratch.

Heh. Finally get the criticism that Captain America is a bit one-note in the films.

The Equalizer

Denzel Washington takes on the Russian mob and also works in a hardware store.

The remake of the 80's TV show or as I like to call it, a 2 hour plus waste of fucking time. Dull dull film with very little going for it. If it had been a straight to DVD film it would have been forgiveable but this was a big budget film with some half decent actors in it. Very little imagination or effort went into the story and it ends up being predictable and tiresome. No doubt it will get a sequel.

The plot was hole ridden but I like the John Wick kind of hero doing badass stuff. It wasn't a waste of my time, put it that way.
(Unlike Arrival which I thought was pretentious after starting off quite well)

To each their own I guess mate. I love me some John Wick style lone badass as well, but after John Wick the bar is very high.

Yeah I know what you mean about Arrival, liked it at first then thinking about it later it was a bit iffy.

I don't do myself any favours by watching cinema-sins videos straight after watching a film :)

The Autopsy of Jane Doe

Properly creepy horror film, thoroughly enjoyed this one. Barring one meh bit of exposition a really cracking watch, recommended.
