    Killers Anonymous

    ★½

    Poorly edited mystery-thriller that has some awful exposition-filled dialogue and a plot (and twist) that makes no sense. Should've expected this from a studio like Grindstone Entertainment, and yet they got me again. Gary Oldman must've done a huge favor for someone in the production and Jessica Alba literally is only in the film for a few minutes in a pointless scene.

    ★★★½

    Decent enough thriller with some violent fight scenes, especially at the end, between Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio Del Toro. Really basic plot (barely one if I'm being honest) but still entertained, partially because it was filmed in my native state of Oregon.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Technically speaking, it's a mess of a film however the fanboy in me (so yes I am biased) managed to smile especially during the third act.

    To its detriment, it is a film geared more towards DC fans than the general audience but I think still one can appreciate Ben Affleck as a fantastic Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman (showing promising signs for her own feature film) and yes, even Jesse Eisenberg thankfully bringing us a different Lex…

    Life on the Line

    I've come to expect this level of quality from Grindstone Entertainment, and unfortunately, John Travolta. This felt like a TV series with (soapy) subplots crammed into a 90-minute running time. Before the end, I found this to be dumb but harmless, however when they tack on showing pictures of those who died in the line of duty (none portrayed in this film that I could tell), I became a tad angry. If they wanted to do a film honoring linemen, fine, then keep it focused on them instead of a poorly written script.
