  • The Martian

    The Martian 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 05 Oct, 2015

    THE MARTIAN: People doing math. Also, nerd jokes. Good.


  • The Walk

    The Walk 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 04 Oct, 2015

    The main suspense is over when exactly this is going to stop being a crap movie and turn into the tech dazzler you know is coming. On a big screen in 3D, the finale is worth showing up for. At home, this thing has to be a snoozer deluxe.

  • 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."


  • Cemetery Man

    Cemetery Man 1994

    ★★★★ Rewatched 26 Sep, 2015

    First rewatch since it came out -- and until it goes pretty much full-on random/free-associative, it felt like a revelation. Bizarre, funny, fantastic looking, and dripping with my favorite kind of visual and gore effects -- from that awesome window in the early '90s where they looked beautiful but also still handmade, occasionally betraying seams and strings. Don't know what to make of the last ~15 minutes, but still, killer, underrated.
