  • The Fifth Element 1997

    ★★ Rewatched 20 Apr, 2014 1

    I used to watch this movie religiously. I would memorize every single line of Gary Oldman's. Now, I can safely say that this is a bad movie. Everything from the costumes to the sets to the music to plot points just screams laziness. It screams French Sensibility. Nothing makes sense, it's all "visual." Just look at that fucking poster, the blue chick looks terrible. It's supposed to be a reference to Alien, and yet it seems like a joke that…

  • Tess 1979

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 16 Apr, 2014

  • Taxi Driver 1976

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 02 Feb, 2013 5

    I find it strange that this movie is so popular. I see 'bros' quoting it and they always have this next to Goodfellas and The Sopranos and Entourage in their collection of movies. I think a lot of people like it for the wrong reasons. They like the violence and the guns and DENIRO. But for me this is the quintessential art house film. It's ambiguous in it's meaning, it has no plot, it's main character has a lot of…
