Kingsman: The Secret Service

What do you get when you convert a British spy movie parody (Austin Powers) back into a plain British spy movie (James Bond)? In my opinion that's what K:TSS is. I enjoyed it for what it was but something was off and I can't quite put the finger on it.

    I felt like the movie couldn't quite figure out if it wanted to be a
    regular" slightly-over the top fun action movie or an absurd parody. Regardless my husband and I loved it.

    Now that I had some time to reflect on it, I'd say the weaponised tactical umbrella was a bridge too far. lol I mean, you can get tough umbrellas for selfdefense but all that gadgetry pushed it into the realm of parody.

    The remote controlled taxi cab was fun though.

    It's meant to be over the top and silly. You don't watch movies like this for realism :P

    That's why they are called movies.... Remember that video game series No One Lives Forever? I enjoyed that a lot. The latest honest trailer (Screen Junkies) on Armageddon is effing hilarious!!

    Why is it easier to train oil rig workers to become astronauts than to teach astronauts how to operate a large drill? Simple, it's Michael Bay logic. lol
