    Aurora 2010

    ★★★ Watched 02 May, 2016

    I respect the perversity involved in making this as dour and tedious as it is -- with Puiu himself as the lead no less -- but ultimately: What the fuck, dude?


  • Keanu

    Keanu 2016

    ★★★ Watched 28 Apr, 2016

    Damn. This is just way too pokey in setting up every single little gag. Key & Peele are fun leads and the movie's never less than watchable, but what the eff -- this thing is 100 minutes with like eight jokes.

    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."


  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 17 Dec, 2015

    Slightly awkward how this is AN EXACT COPY of A NEW HOPE. But fine, it doesn't hurt anything. Abrams sticks to his brand -- It Won't Suck (TM) -- keeps it pretty neutral with the new faces and pretty irresistible with the old ones. Everyone's good with this, right? We're good? Good.
