  • Snowpiercer 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 Jul, 2014

    Magnificent production design. Great score. Solid performances. Steady balance of macabre and action sequences and weirdness and horror. Just a fantastic film all around.

  • Rise of the Planet of the Apes 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 13 Jul, 2014

    Guys! This was really good! Much headier than I anticipated, and much more emotionally involving. Franco turns in a solid, subdued performance, but unsurprisingly, Serkis is the star here.

  • 12 Years a Slave 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 01 Mar, 2014

    Absolutely devastating. It's beautifully directed and acted, and so jarring that I haven't stopped thinking about several specific shots.

  • Silver Linings Playbook 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Feb, 2013

    Sharp, witty, and occasionally wrenching take on what mental illness looks like for someone who never quite grew up, and someone else who did way too fast. Maybe it's because this is a subject near and dear to my heart, but I loved this unabashedly. It's sincere without being over the top and wonderfully acted.
