    A League of Their Own 1992

    ★★★½ Rewatched 12 Jan, 2016

    Home sick from work, long overdue for a revisit. This was the first viewing since the revelation that the actress playing older Dottie at the beginning was not Geena Davis in old makeup. It was therefore the first viewing wherein I noticed the blatantly obvious dubbing of Davis' voice over that actress. It's the one glaring issue with the movie. If none of the other elderly actresses had to have the exact same voice as their younger antecedents...why did they dub Davis? It makes ZERO sense. Still, amazing film obviously.

    My second viewing, but my first with Drake. Love seeing flicks with my fam! I think I liked FA even more the second time.

    Upon repeat viewings, I'm starting to understand that this is my favorite Michael Bay film. Dripping with silly bravado, sure, but objectively better constructed and executed than much of his brain-numbing action fare.

    Spring Breakers 2012

    ★★★ Watched 18 Mar, 2013

    One of the strangest films I think I've ever seen. The implications made by Korine's "Girls Gone Ridiculously Wild" conceit seem very straightforward, but the stylistic choices challenge knee-jerk assessments as to its true intentions. Franco's performance is spell-binding. I'm gonna need a second, if not also third, viewing to really make up my mind.
