  • An Affair of the Heart 2012

    ★★★ Watched 12 Oct, 2014

    Guys, did you know that Rick Springfield has a contingent of female fans that could be semi-accurately described as cult-like? Would you be interested in learning more about them? Then I recommend this movie!

  • Event Horizon 1997

    ★★★ Watched 18 Oct, 2014

    This was fun. It's zippy and scary and it's got a great concept with a few great performances to match. The direction is nothing special and it's not necessarily the most satisfying viewing experience, plus there's an over-reliance on jump scares, but it's enjoyable enough.

  • 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.
