  • Sicario

    Simplicity is when you remove all unnecessary features, you get this. A film that’s all meat, no fat.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    • “Witness me! I am awaited in Valhalla!”
    • “MEDIOCRE!!!”
    • Faceless Immortan Joe is nasty!
    • Furiosa is pretty calm, considering her name. Max Max is also sane.
  • District 9

    Wikus is the real everyman. A dumb bureaucrat who keeps fucking up.

  • The International

    I have seen this several times now over the years, and it never fails to impress, even when you know the twists. Bourne with much less action and more evilness.

  • Blade Runner 2049

    Not so special K. A worthwhile sequel to a classic.

  • Dark City

    A companion piece to The Matrix, but with a noir aesthetic. Sleeep!

  • Akira

    Damn radical. Part of the holy trinity of classical anime: this, Ghost in the Shell and Cowboy Bebop.

  • The Fifth Element

    A supreme being. Perfect.

  • Princess Mononoke

    A gripping tale of a feral ecoterrorist raised by wolves that discover what you hu-mans call “emotions”.

  • Mad Max 2

    After 3 or 4 views, you can see the speed up scenes, but it’s still very suspenseful to see the last chase scene (and the rest of the film too).

  • King Kong

    I re-watched King Kong today and it’s still as impressive as the first time.

  • Police Story 3: Super Cop

    This is just amazing. Should really be called Secret Service Story.
