  • Bound to Vengeance

    Bound to Vengeance 2015

    ★★★ Watched 30 Jun, 2015

    Gross and reprehensible all over the place. That aside, watchable.

    Me yesterday: "This Carol Reed classic is boring."

    Me today: "This morally icky, tonally wack variation on rape-revenge is not boring."

    (Hangs head.)

    Anyway, if you might like this, you know who you are. You sick fuck.

  • Odd Man Out

    Odd Man Out 1947

    ★★★ Watched 29 Jun, 2015

    Bailed on my first two attempts at watching because I just couldn't connect in any way and found it deadly dull. Third try not much better, so I just plowed through. Much respect for the craftsmanship here and (on paper) the concept of how the film branches out to more and more characters. Just wish I wasn't so bored by it (especially as a fan of THIRD MAN and FALLEN IDOL). Your mileage may (and let's be honest, probably will) vary.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 06 May, 2015

    A magnum opus. A heavy metal WAGES OF FEAR. I was not let down even one little bit. Miraculous.

    The insta-reactions:

    Was so worried what would happen if FURY ROAD didn't meet my expectations, I didn't stop to think what would happen if it did. AAAAAAAAAHHH!

    FURY ROAD reveals what we thought were the impressive large scale action films of the last 20 years to have actually been total chickenshit.

    George Miller to James Cameron, Peter Jackson, Michael Bay, Alfonso Cuaron, all of Marvel and others: "You're not metal."


  • That's My Boy

    That's My Boy 2012

    Rewatched 27 Jun, 2015

    To reiterate:

    All others avoid, but if you grew up sneaking listens to Sandler's filthy early comedy albums, THAT'S MY BOY is the film you were promised.
