Happy Thursday everyone! One more day until the weekend; I'm hoping to catch Spectre this weekend, keeping my fingers crossed! This week's theme is quite timely with the film's release - secret agents or spies! Here are my picks this week:
Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin
The Man from UNCLE
I enjoyed The Man from UNCLE; it was an entertaining popcorn flick. The rapport between Solo and Kuryakin was a highlight - the way each played their strengths or tried to impress the other of their superiority, they made the movie fun.
The Raid 2: Berendal
Rama became an undercover cop in this installment, infiltrating a drug lord group in order to expose the dealings between the police commissioner and the drug gangs. The events immediately follow the first movie, but the sequel doesn't rehash its predecessor. I have no idea how they're going to top the sequences in this one; it was that good.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Heavensbee isn't your typical spy, action-wise. His purpose was revealed at the latter part of the movie, though hints of it were scattered during the first parts of the movie. He was very good at his work; managed to get into President Snow's good graces, became the head Gamemaker in the Quarter Quell and successfully extracted Katniss out with a help of fellow allies.
