Black Sheep
The Clash at Demonhead
Black Sheep

I’ve already posted a song from the Scott Pilgrim Soundtrack, but it’s just that good! I listen to it at least once a week, it’s a nice eclectic mix. I love this song Black Sheep. It’s actually a Metric song, but I prefer the movie-version as sung by Brie Larson (aka Envy Adams of The Clash at Demonhead) because she’s pretty awesome.

KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE is insanely ludicrous, crazily fun, impossibly british (more than Bond has ever dreamt to be) and one of the most ultra-violent films I have ever seen (there is a jaw-dropping sequence in a church set to “Freebird” that is now on the Mount Rushmore of movie incredibleness and the final act is the most bonkers thing I’ve ever witnessed). I have never been more in love with anything ever. It’s very tongue-in-cheek and is a fantastic send up of all the Roger Moore Bond films (but with A LOT more balls). 

The entire cast is perfection: Colin Firth is aces and spot-on as the unflappable spy; Taron Egerton is a real find whose transformation from street thug to super spy is outstanding; Mark Strong is amazing, playing against type, as the Kingsman version of Q; Samuel L. Jackson makes for a fantastic villain with a sexy henchwoman to boot. The action sequences are INSANE with crazy/complex choreography showcasing the actors doing their own stunts which is AWESOME (much like what Edgar Wright did with Scott Pilgrim and The World’s End respectfully, but much loonier). 

 This is Matthew Vaughn’s best film to date and since he always outdoes himself I can’t wait to see what he has in store next (don’t you love having things to look forward to). It’s unfathomably entertaining and brings large-scale blockbuster action but with style and attitude that you rarely see from them. I demand this become a franchise and gives me at least a half-dozen more of this madness. The first must-see film of the year and it has me giddy like a schoolgirl…I couldn’t be happier.
