  • Mama 2013

    ★★½ Watched 14 Nov, 2014

    Guillermo del Toro presents, Jessica Chastain stars, and Jaime Lannister plays a character named after me, so surely this will be good, right? Nope. The characters are one dimensional, the plot is boring and predictable and the actors, try as they might to overcome poor writing and directing, really can't do anything with what they're given. There are a couple moments that I thought were kind of cool, but on the whole, Mama is just a waste of time.

  • The Master 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 09 Nov, 2014

    I feel the desire to defend my rating, as it is quite clearly far too low. The Master is, from a technical aspect, fantastic. Objectively, I have an immense appreciation for this film. However, I feel like it missed its mark with me somewhat. I don't know why or how, but it just didn't quite click with me. I still have hope that when I rewatch this in a few months, my score will go up. But for now it is only a 3.5

  • Hanna 2011

    ★★★★ Rewatched 01 Dec, 2012 9

    I noticed on this rewatch that Hanna seems to have a lot of similarities to Nicholas Winding Refn's Drive. Both films are filled with dark and gritty noir-like themes, both have a fantastic electronic musical score, both are violent, and both take the viewer in a very different direction than expected. I am honestly surprised that this didn't receive more attention upon its release as it is a very well made film with a fantastic performance from Saoirse Ronan, especially…
