  • The Good Dinosaur

    The Good Dinosaur 2015

    ★★★ Watched 27 Nov, 2015

    By-the-numbers plot, and iffy script with familiar plot points and weak dialogue. However, it is damn beautiful to look at, and the score is great. The movie's strongest moments are all silent.

  • Creed

    Creed 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Nov, 2015

    Classic boxing melodrama for a new generation.

    Right before the big fight, the white champion tells Adonis Creed that, unlike him, he wasn't born with a silver spoon, and that he had to fight to get where he is.

    I wish Creed had more clearly beaten the shit out of that guy in the last fight. You know, as a cathartic symbol of how good it would be to beat one of those "all lives matter" people's ass.

    World of Tomorrow 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 31 Mar, 2015

    There is so much to unpack here. The only thing I know so far is that I loved watching it, and that I will watch it again at least a couple of times.
