  • A Matter of Life and Death

    A Matter of Life and Death 1946

    ★★★ Watched 28 Jun, 2013

    The first 20 minutes of A Matter of Life and Death has me awestruck. What a beautiful idea that a WWII pilot be missed by heaven and fall in love with his extra time. The film stays intriguing for the most part until the main character's court date with Heaven in which it is to be decided if he should get a free pass to stay alive.

    The Bling Ring 2013

    *Wash, rinse, repeat*

    What a vapid film. I got the vibe throughout The Bling Ring that Coppola was purposefully having her characters speak in indefinites (such as, "and I was like, whatever, y'know?) as well as creating a film that was only surface level glamour (much like her characters). However, I think she might have done too well at this, creating a film wholly unenjoyable to watch. A solid 5/6 of the film is exactly the above stated formula. The Bling Ring seems to be a misstep for Ms. Coppola.

    This is everything you could want from a Tarantino flick, bloody, brutal, and funny.

  • In Fear

    In Fear 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 Jan, 2013

    Absolutely. Terrifying. There was not a single moment in this movie where I could catch my breath and my heart wasn't racing. The epitome of psychological horror, as well as an awesome look at what fear can do to a person. In Fear is everything a horror movie should be.
