  • A Brony Tale

    A Brony Tale 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 31 Mar, 2015

    A respectful, but honest look at the Brony movement. It makes me question me question my own fandoms. Am I nearly as passionate or sincere about Star Trek or whatever as these Bronies are about MLP? Hardly.

  • The Return of the Pink Panther

    The Return of the Pink Panther 1975

    ★★★ Watched 31 Mar, 2015 2

    At nearly 2 hours, Return was a bit long. The repeated gags (pulling electric devices out of the wall, knobs and buttons falling off, etc.) felt forced rather than like call backs. Clouseau's incompetence grows with every film, which is fun, but I'm not sure he has much further to go. All in all I had fun, but the movie could have benefited from another round in the editing booth.

  • My Little Pony: Equestria Girls

    My Little Pony: Equestria Girls 2013

    ★★★ Watched 13 Apr, 2014 3

    I'm not a brony. I've got nothing against them; I just wouldn't sit down to watch MLP if it weren't for my 4 year old daughter.

    That being said, these ponies don't pull any punches. They pack a tremendous amount of fantasy plot into a children's cartoon.

    Equestria Girls is not without its plot holes (Why does Twilight Sparkle not have a human doppleganger when all of her friends do?) and there is a HUGE data dump to tell us…

  • Gravity

    Gravity 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 18 Oct, 2013 1

    Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. I am ASTOUNDED by the cinematography. I have no idea how this movie was assembled.

    The score was visceral. At times the hope was all consuming, and at other times the instrumentation was reduced to noise.

    The scientist in me had issue with plot points...but I really don't care. THIS is a film.
