  • High Fidelity

    High Fidelity 2000

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 04 Jul, 2015 1

    I'm moving this up a half star. It attacks so much and embraces so much. Starting a record label, hanging out at a record store, the truth with one-night stands, top five lists (a cliche now, but awesome back then), Cusack vs. Cusack, meeting your girl through a common love (music), the hitting home of how to make a proper mix tape(!), and a hundred other tiny little moments that are just so perfectly and honestly written.

    I always hated…

    Didn't I promise you fireworks?

    ...not a glitch. I watched this twice today.

    This movie beat The Pianist? Fuck you.

  • The Adventures of Tintin

    The Adventures of Tintin 2011

    ★★ Added 16

    Incredibly boring with unflattering characters and attempts at comedy that had me eye rolling ever bit as much as I was checking my watch. No stakes, no story, no intrigue. Just a series of set pieces that, for the most part, linger on nothing of interest.

    The character of Tin Tin himself is as bland as he appears. Wish I would've skipped this one.
