  • August: Osage County 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Apr, 2014

    The best thing is it is, og course, Streep. But what surprised me is the second best thing about this film; Julia Roberts. I never thought I would go there.

  • Philomena 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 11 Apr, 2014

    The story itself is a film worthy. The actors does an excellent job. The curve, the twists, the arch, all in place for a good, touching and heartfelt film. But... and this is not the first time with Frears, he underestimate his viewers completely. We are not dumb. Don't make us feel dumb, then. I love this film for the reasons listed above, but this dumbed down rhetoric just pisses me off.

  • The Fifth Element 1997

    ★★ Rewatched 09 Apr, 2014

    I used to love this film. Not a childhood love, but a tween thing, I imagine. Even if I can see the appeal and the lush, wide-spread fantasy Besson manage to put on film, it's a messy stick, not tackling time especially good. It had four stars, before this re-watch. It lost two.

  • Nebraska 2013

    Payne's best to date! Subtle, tiny greatness.

  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 1937

    Who said today's kids - films was brutal?!

  • Jobs 2013

    ★★ Watched 02 Apr, 2014

    He looks like Steve Jobs. But it ends there. Kutcher doesn't even manage to move like the late Mr. Jobs without it feeling made up. This man needs to do juvenile comedy until he's age cannot disclose it any more, and then he need to retire.

    In the film, every time Jobs comes up with a great, no brilliant,idea Kutcher attempts to give us a look of genius. A sparkle in the eyes, a crooked smile and a head slightly…

  • 20 Feet from Stardom 2013

    ★★★ Watched 24 Mar, 2014

    A well deserved documentary for it's subjects, indeed, but it weres a bit thin after a while..

  • American Hustle 2013

    ★★★ Watched 23 Mar, 2014

    Looks amazing, generous acting, good plot.. but too much drama. A story needs containing; this was too long and too rich.

  • Welcome to the Punch 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Feb, 2014

    Not half as bad as "everybody" has it to be. Well preformed, fairly plotted and looks fantastic!

  • Magnolia 1999

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 20 Feb, 2014

    For the nth time. This is it. This is how good movie-making ever got! This is the peak. What a landslide of a film. The singular best film ever. Period!

  • About Time 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 11 Feb, 2014

    Richard Curtis most profound film to date. A lovely homage to family, relationships and life. Puts all his previous attempts in the backseat.

  • Rush 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Feb, 2014

    It's Top Gear - The Movie. Love it!
