  • 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.

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Oct, 2014

    I don't have to tell you how incredible the performances are in this movie. I also really liked the sound design and the direction. But I think it could've been about 15-20 minutes shorter and been just as powerful, if not more so. Some scenes are absolutely indelible, and what could be referred to as "the middle section" is some of Fincher's best work. Still, a bit overlong for me.

  • 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.
