  • WALL·E

    WALL·E 2008

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Jun, 2015

    I can't believe I've never seen this film before. Today, I'm fairly sick, and I just decided I needed an artistic film which would convey a lot of emotion. This movie made me cry with its emotional beauty. Pixar's ability to communicate beautiful stories with exceedingly limited dialogue is nowhere better represented than here—except perhaps the opening scene of Up.

    Absolutely lovely. I rented this film on iTunes and somewhat wish I chose to buy it instead. Perhaps one day.

  • Get Hard

    Get Hard 2015

    ★★★ Watched 12 Apr, 2015

    This movie is the first Ferrell movie in a while which I haven't really liked. There were about three scenes which made me laugh out loud, which was fine, but the majority of the movie was tiresome, unnecessary filler which served to set up jokes which I really didn't find terribly amusing.

    The only reason I can think of that anyone wouldn't like this movie is having the wrong expectations for it. It's just like the show, but happens to be a plot line which takes more time to explore than the…

  • Singin' in the Rain

    Singin' in the Rain 1952

    ★★★★★ Watched 15 Jul, 2010

    Astounding classic. This is the first old movie that made me like old movies, and it's wonderful. The way Donald O'Connor combined believability with incredible movement in Make 'Em Laugh is unforgettable, and is what made me realize just how talented actors in old Hollywood were, and had to be.

    Throughout, I get an impression of grace that I rarely see in newer movies. The fact is, it's just spectacular.
