  • Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

    Me and Earl and the Dying Girl 2015

    ★★★ Watched 27 Jun, 2015

    This movie should be called "Me and Gregg and the Dying Girl," because Earl is the one character I was interested in. As a young white man who was an outsider at school, I couldn't stand Gregg. Hell, this film can be unbearable at times. It feels like "Juno" as directed by Wes Anderson.

    I browsed around and saw a headline about how Alfonso Gomez-Rejon was so inspired by Scorsese that he went to NYU to follow in his footsteps.…

    Inside Out 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Jun, 2015

    Christopher Nolan is one of the most ambitious directors working today in Hollywood. His themes are ambitious. His stories are ambitious.

What makes Interstellar stand out from his other films is the (not so strong) emotional journey.

    ★★★★★ Watched 04 Oct, 2013 1

    Movies and magic go hand in hand. The best magic trick is where you doesn't question how the trick was pulled off, but how awe inspired you are. The same goes for movies. Méliès was, after all, a magician turned filmmaker who used many of his tricks to create special effects for his films (You've all seen Hugo).

    Alfonso Cuaron is not a Director, but a Magician and Gravity pulls of a spectacular and emotional trick.

    The visual effects are…
