  • Before Sunrise

    Before Sunrise 1995

    ★★★★★ Watched 09 Feb, 2016

    I'm not one for romantic movies. Yet, "Before Sunrise" is different. Told over the period of one night, the film is tender, romantic and funny while being natural. I'm so glad to finally see this indie masterpiece.

  • Hail, Caesar!

    Hail, Caesar! 2016

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Feb, 2016

    The Coen Brothers make films that reawakens a filmmaker's inner soul. Frustrated with the latest family drama? Watch A Serious Man. Senses dull from the latest action film? Watch True Grit. Bored with the latest comedy? Watch Lebowski, Raising Airzona and other films they made.

    Hail Caesar is no different. Told over twenty-seven hours, this comedy follows a studio fixer keeping order over his studio. It's threatened by the kidnapping of it's biggest star. It's wacky, it's funny, it's beautiful to watch. Simple put, this is the finest film of 2016 (as of February)

    Christopher Nolan is one of the most ambitious directors working today in Hollywood. His themes are ambitious. His stories are ambitious. His vision is ambitious Hell, even his tracking shots are ambitious. After a while though, his films could start to feel the same. What makes Interstellar stand out from his other films is the (not so strong) emotional journey.

    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…
