  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Apr, 2014

    Three Days of the Condor meets Manchurian Candidate by way of Goldeneye (with a dash of Raiders of the Lost Ark-style blockbuster action thrown in for good measure). This is hands down the best Marvel movie yet, and easily one of the best superhero movies ever made.

  • The Exiles 1961

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Apr, 2014

    Liked this one a lot. It stands as a fascinating and somewhat bleak document of a culture that is either underrepresented or (more often than not) misrepresented in media. At the same time, the movie serves as a compelling neo-realist portrait of Los Angeles during a period that is far removed from the contemporary experience, but still feels very familiar in many ways. Fans of documentaries in particular owe it to themselves to give this one a look.
