  • The End of the Tour

    The End of the Tour 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 03 Jan, 2016

    This movie is incredibly good. Not to say anyone can truly claim to be an expert on David Foster Wallace, but I've read all his books (including Infinite Jest) and some of them multiple times, and I believe I've read and watched every available interview about him, so seeing this movie was overdue.

    I think it's amazing. Barring the fact that Dave Wallace would probably absolutely unconscionably hate the fact this movie exists, I think it's amazing. They tried really…

    I will avoid spoilers, and also I'm in a bit of a hurry to log this film before I watch another film, which I'll also log. Maybe another two films.

    This movie was very good and ought to be watched. There are so many hours of podcasts talking about this movie such that I see no reason to spend too much time talking about it.

    Just see it!

    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.
