    I'm Not There.

    ★★★

    Liked it, didn't love it. Confusing narrative.

  • Into the Abyss

    Into the Abyss

    ★★★★

    Another thought-provoking documentary from Herzog. Reminded me a lot of The Thin Blue Line, but it's ultimate purpose is to question the morality of the death penalty. I for one, although a Democrat, believe that the death penalty is a necessary evil in certain circumstances, but Herzog had me questioning my own beliefs.

  • I Love You, Man

    I Love You, Man

    ★★★★½

    One of my all-time favorite comedies. Rudd and Segel are magic together.

    "Slap a da bass!"

  • Prometheus

    Prometheus

    ★★★★

    Fascinating, gruesome, and gorgeous film that while not perfect, is very satisfying and treats its audiences like adults; leaving questions for us to answer on our own. It's ambiguity will be the subject of many analyses for years to come.

  • Better Off Dead...

    Better Off Dead...

    ★★★★

    One of the most underrated teen comedies of the 80s. Quirky, odd, pitch-black, and most importantly, funny!

  • The Sandlot

    The Sandlot

    ★★★★½

    In my opinion, the best kids film ever made. Timeless classic.

  • Certified Copy

    Certified Copy

    ★★★½

    Reminiscent to Before Sunset/After Sunrise with a twist that will leave you questioning what was real and what was a charade. Tuscany provides a gorgeous backdrop, just as France did for Before Sunset, and Mark Shimell is a revelation. Binoche is spectacular again.

  • Miami Vice

    Miami Vice

    ★★★½

    Better than I thought it would be when I first saw trailers but not as good as some of the hype its received on Letterboxd. The character development is sparse and the plot is convoluted but its a visual feast and the action is authentic and impressive.

  • Punch-Drunk Love

    Punch-Drunk Love

    ★★★★

    Adam Sandler's best movie in a landslide. PTA's direction keeps you on edge and makes you feel as if you are mentally piggy-backing the protagonist. Strange, quirky, and altogether satisfying.

  • Triangle

    Triangle

    ★★★★

    A hidden gem of a movie. If you're into mind-bending chillers or even films on time travel (although not technically a time-travel movie), this is right up your alley. I'd like to see more from Melissa George. She was actually quite good.

  • The Skin I Live In

    The Skin I Live In

    ★★★★

    A rather entoxicating story, beautifully directed. A stand-out edition to the psycho-sexual sub-genre. The lead actors are both terrific as well.

  • The Cabin in the Woods

    The Cabin in the Woods

    ★★★★½

    WOW! Completely blown away. A non-stop ride of outlandish horror and laugh-out-loud comedy. Right up my alley. This is truly an instant cult classic and I would be hard pressed to name another movie where I had a better time watching it in theaters. Truly awesome.
