  • See No Evil 2 2014

    ★½ Watched 21 Oct, 2014

    Goddammit, SEE NO EVIL 2. I'm the one dude on the planet who's been asking for eight damn years why there's been no sequel(s) to the cozy, paint-by-numbers slasher-non-classic SEE NO EVIL. Why aren't they making one of these dumb things for every single hulking wrestler, I would ask. I'll gladly pay to watch every one of 'em! And still, I asked so little when the sequel finally arrived.

    There's no gore (okay...precious little gore), no nudity, no anything. All…

  • Birdman 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 20 Oct, 2014

    BIRDMAN: Inarritu's feelings are really hurt from everyone laughing at BIUTIFUL. Undeniable electricity but too often feels like a tantrum.

    Also, it's no fault of her performance, but every scene with Emma Stone is a never-ending dead zone.

    Also, why does Edward Norton disappear from the last third of the movie?

    63 (Feels like I need to go this high for its pure cinema aspects, but this could plummet over time.)

  • The Changeling 1980

    ★★★ Rewatched 18 Oct, 2014 2

    This is a fine, but strictly polite ghost story. Always baffled when people cite as a terrifying, underseen classic.


  • Edge of Tomorrow 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Oct, 2014

    This is overachieving for a shit-flying-around type movie, but I couldn't help imagining the Verhoeven version where Cruise gets savagely ripped apart in graphic detail 800 times. Anyway, not optional.

    Question: What's up with the simulated mimics in the *training* room breaking people's backs. Isn't that a waste of soldiers?
