078. 04/18 – The Protector 2* (VOD) 3/10 – WTF happened to Tony Jaa? Once a badass he has now been reduced to a co-star to bad CGI and slow fight cinematography. Don’t waste your money.
###. 04/19 – The Raid 2 (Cinema) 9/10 – Quite possibly the best martial arts actioner ever. Take everything that made the first one great, turn it up to 11 and add some seriously cool characters and you have the sequel. The ending fight is going to be hard to top, so much badassery! Iko Uwais is the man to beat now.
079. 04/19 – Merantau* (VOD) 7/10 – While Gareth Evans’ earlier film (also starring Iko Uwais) isn’t as action packed as The Raid films it was cinematically brilliant. Great use of colors, some very cool shots and a decent amount of ass kicking.
080. 04/19 – Knights of Badassdom* (VOD) 6/10 – Fairly funny film about some LARP nerds who accidentally summon an ancient succubus who they must battle. Some great D and D references will bring a laugh t older players.
081. 04/20 – El Clon de Hitler* (bootleg) 2/10 – Straight to video turd from Mexico about a Hitler clone who runs a gang in Mexico. Just horrible.
082. 04/20 – Paycheck to Paycheck* (HBO) 7/10 – Documentary on the single mother of three young children barely getting by.
