  • Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

    Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back 2001

    ★★★★ Rewatched 27 Aug, 2015

    This film is a gift that keeps on giving. It contains dumb and infantile jokes and an insane amout of delightful references and cameos, some of which I'd completely forgotten or missed before. I can't not love it. Applesauce, bitch!

  • The Company You Keep

    The Company You Keep 2012

    ★★ Watched 27 Aug, 2015

    I wasn't very interested to see this film in the first place but decided to get it a while ago because of the cast and since the DVD was on sale. The premise in interesting enough but the film itself is quite dull and boring. Despite the impressive cast there are no memorable performances. I like to see a political thriller occasionally but this one didn't do anything for me.

    A classic. One of the greatest westerns of all time. One of the coolest films ever made.

    The last thirty minutes are just out of this world...

    What a wonderful rewatch. I always enjoyed the story, which is fast-paced and constantly amusing, but this time I was more invested in the characters and found the ending more moving than I did the first time around. I like Wes Anderson's visual style and Robert Yeoman's camerawork very much in this one, and the dialogue is fantastic. Ralph Fiennes is great, and I think M. Gustave is his finest role in years. This is my favorite Wes Anderson film so far. Easily.
