    X-Men: Days of Future Past 2014

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 29 Jul, 2015

    The Rogue Cut is no wild change from the previous version, but the added minutes are good enough to merit making this the preferred version to watch.

  • Tig

    Tig 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Jul, 2015

    On Netflix. If you're a standup fan and/or have had yourself, family or friends hit by cancer, you should make time for this.

  • 7 Days in Hell

    7 Days in Hell 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Jul, 2015

    Honestly enjoyed this 42 minute sprint more than most theatrical comedies.

  • Ant-Man

    Ant-Man 2015

    ★★★ Watched 27 Jul, 2015

    Fun but at all times slapping you in the face with how much more fun it should be.

  • Amy

    Amy 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 27 Jul, 2015

    Watching this documentary is like going to a funeral for someone whose life you personally destroyed.

  • No No: A Dockumentary

    No No: A Dockumentary 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 27 Jul, 2015

    Solid albeit uneven in pacing story of the baseball player who pitched a no hitter while on LSD. There's more to it than that, but if thats the only thing you care about find the 5 minute animated version of the story on Youtube.

  • Man of Steel

    Man of Steel 2013

    ★★★ Rewatched 16 Jul, 2015

    Marginally better on rewatch knowing what happens and where it might be going, and the destruction derby is actually less numbing on the small screen. In fact, I'd say in general the presentation of the blu-ray is quite sharp and a lot better than that comparison video that got spread around.

  • Eugene Mirman: Vegan on His Way to the Complain Store

    Eugene Mirman: Vegan on His Way to the Complain Store 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Jul, 2015

    None of Eugene Mirman's specials is an outright classic. They are too much a ramshackle and shaggy collection of goofs to be so. But I love this guy, and this is possibly his best hour to date. His conceptual prank based stuff is funny, but he gets by on personality and voice.

  • A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 16 Jul, 2015

    Badass.

    This slow and steady Iranian vampire flick is tripping on Jim Jarmusch's blood and would make a perfect double feature with Only Lovers Left Alive. One of the best looking films of 2015. Will admit there is not a whole lot of plot, but it's just so hypnotically watchable.

  • While We're Young

    While We're Young 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 04 Jul, 2015

    It's weird to watch a Noah Baumbach film and lament that the characters aren't detestable enough. Mind you, as time goes on you grow to hate Adam Driver quite a bit, but without that grating edge the whole way through it doesn't quite feel like the Noah I come to. Instead, even though it's not that complicated, I'd say the story carries things more than usual for him.

  • The Overnight

    The Overnight 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 04 Jul, 2015

    A solid but typical Duplass Bros production. Sexually awkward and more grin-funny than outright ha-ha funny. An easy rec for anything with this much Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzmann.

  • Step Up

    Step Up 2006

    ★★½ Watched 04 Jul, 2015

    Evidence Channing Tatum was always good. Truly strong chemistry, to the extent they've been together ever since, carries this thing.
