  • Thick as Thieves

    Thick as Thieves 2009

    ★★½ Watched 02 Aug, 2015

    Also known as The Code, there is a lot of charm and fun to be had with this film, but rarely is this little heist thriller as smart as it claims to be. In fact, if you've seen most any modern heist flick then you an predict damn near every twist and turn that this film throws at you. The heist itself isn't nearly as fun as it was made to seem in the build, but it's hard not to…

  • The Avenging Eagle

    The Avenging Eagle 1978

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 02 Aug, 2015

    At this point, I can quote this movie in a language I don't speak - I love it so much. It's occasionally cheesy, heartfelt, and packed with enough action to break a few bones of the audience. This is high grade kung fun.

    The Lazarus Effect 2015

    ★★½ Watched 22 Jul, 2015 4

    Many of my horror friends told me how terrible The Lazarus Effect was, but after watching it it's hard for me to say its one of the worst of the year. Sure, it's unmemorable, generic, and makes little sense by the third act, but it's certainly not as bad as some of the shit I've seen this year. The visuals are interesting and the concept is fun. However, if you're looking for a horror flick to watch you can also do much, much better.

  • Inside Out

    Inside Out 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Jun, 2015

    Since Pixar decided to completely abandon creativity with their last two films, I was skeptical about Inside Out. However, this is easily one of my favorites that the studio has released and one of their most ambitious, unique, and creative films of their highly regarded catalog. It's both outrageously fun and horrendously sad (a key component to the theme of the film). I'm glad to see the studio producing films like this again. It comes highly recommended.
