    Army of Darkness

    ★★★★

    Army of Darkness is so good. It's impossible to watch it without feeling great.

    Sam Raimi finally had just enough of a budget to make things look good, in a Harryhausen throwback kind of way. The score by Danny Elfman is just fantastic, and I think in a traditional sense this is the funniest of them all. Ash is finally like a real..movie character, with a plot and jokes and swashbuckling scenes, and he's more of a chauvinistic clueless idiot…

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★★★½

    I don't think superhero films should be comedies, history has proven that they work so much better as thrillers. And that's why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favourite Marvel film to date, possibly even more so than The Avengers.

    When someone threatens to cause major damage to S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America has to rethink everything he knows - already trying to adapt to the 21st century, he's making new friends and meeting old ones, thinking of partners lost and…
