  • The Fifth Element 1997

    ★★★ Watched 19 Jan, 2015

    This film had all the elements of a slightly illogical, mildly confusing, and ridiculously over-the-top sci-fi flick. But it also had decent cinematography and music and just enough amusing bits, however random, to make it entertaining nonetheless.

    Really, it was all worth it for the black TV personality guy who acted like a stereotypical gay dude on drugs, except he was neither gay nor on drugs, he was just so ridiculous yet presented with smooth perfection of character that he…

  • The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 30 Dec, 2014 1

    Of all the Hobbit (or Lord of the Rings) movies, this one felt distinctly short. It just felt lighter and faster, as though there wasn't as much meat to it. In retrospect, I think that's because, while the movie was comparable to the others in length, the plot wasn't as expansive. All of the other Middle Earth films cram a very complex plot into their 2-3 hours. The better part of this film was composed of a single battle. While…

  • Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith 2005

    ★★★★ Watched 20 May, 2012 7

    I already knew this was my favorite Star Wars episode... even though I didn't get around to seeing it in its entirety until today. ;) I really like Anakin's storyline as a whole; he's the redeeming factor of the prequels... if not the entire series... and the end of Ep. III is the pinnacle. Great finale. Like all SW films, there it has the usual problems of slow pacing and corny dialog, but overall this one isn't too bad. The romance or immodesty isn't unbearable either. Fun stuff, if you like "emo dude" (as a family member calls Anakin).

  • The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Jan, 2013 3

    I wasn't sure what I thought of this movie until I got to the ending. Then I started crying. The ending is thrilling, tragic, and touching all at once.

    As for the rest of the movie, it was interesting, both in an entertainment sense and in an intellectual sense. Like "The Dark Knight," the themes are complex and thought-provoking; it's a movie I'll have to watch multiple times before I fully grasp all the nuances. Unlike "The Dark Knight," however,…
