    De Palma 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Dec, 2016

    You could say it's basically one of those "Vice guide..." directors episodes, and you'd be sort of right, but given how this went through an entire filmography of around 40 films without any of them feeling slighted, in this amount of minutes, that's kind of a feat. For such a simple presentation it feels very fresh, and certain will have you re-exploring a number of (so-so) movies

  • The Edge of Seventeen

    The Edge of Seventeen 2016

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Nov, 2016

    By all rights should be a genre landmark, with an incredible lead performance by the most relatable teen character in several years. Bring a sibling.

  • The Night of the Hunter

    The Night of the Hunter 1955

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Nov, 2016

    Highly entertaining, influential, wonderfully shot...

    ...and everyone is a fucking moron who frequently makes the most unbelievably dumb decision at every turn. It's laughably inane, but it can't be denied.

  • Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town

    Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town 1970

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 29 Nov, 2016

    This special begins with the postman opening and reading other peoples' mail.

  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2016

    ★★★★★ Watched 25 Nov, 2016

    So... I liked this more than any of the Potter films. My wife is a true hardcore Potterphile and it becomes hard to keep up, and in fact, it can also be a bit exhausting or draining when you're with someone who is a much bigger fan of something than you could ever hope to be.

    But everything here, including all the stuff that seems unnecessary, was delightful. And never use that word. Loved all of the characters, loved the…

  • The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

    The Man from U.N.C.L.E. 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 25 Nov, 2016

    Decent, but if Ritchie had embraced the time period more, this could be excellent. More Cavill in crime films please.

  • Colin Quinn: The New York Story

    Colin Quinn: The New York Story 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Nov, 2016

    Does Colin Quinn still count as a conservative after this year? If so, he's the funniest conservative comedian I can think of, or maybe the only one.

  • Hardcore Henry

    Hardcore Henry 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Nov, 2016

    Watching at home, I had to pause it a few times because for my tastes, its a bit much to endure non-stop. That said, for how I watched it, I very much appreciated the craft.

  • Sausage Party

    Sausage Party 2016

    ★★★ Watched 25 Nov, 2016

    kind of in that Ted zone of "feeling a bit guilty for finding certain easy things funny"

    But not the weed stuff. I will never get why so many movies assume smoking weed is funny in and of itself. Then again, this movie also seems throwing in extra "fucks" and "shits" is funny, just because it can.

  • The Big Picture

    The Big Picture 1989

    ★★★ Added 1

    Guest's first picture is better than I expected, but as satire, too gentle and too conventional. Easy breezy watch though.

  • Pretty Persuasion

    Pretty Persuasion 2005

    ★★★ Watched 18 Nov, 2016

    Starts off with a lot of promise, but it gradually runs out of steam, which is a shame. Can't give a high reco, but for a good chunk of it the feeling of finding a hidden Solondz-esque gem was worthwhile. If nothing else evidence that Wood needs to be in more movies, and specifically more movies like this.
