  • Moneyball

    Moneyball 2011

    ★★★★½ Watched 03 Feb, 2015

    The movie was slow near the beginning, and the characterization of Brad Pitt's character is done mainly through simple, quick dialogue.

    However, the movie picks up immediately when Jonah Hill starts entering the picture. Despite this movie being about sports, I found a huge amount of enjoyment in it.

  • Boyhood

    Boyhood 2014

    ★★★ Rewatched 31 Jan, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • 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.
