  • The Counselor 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 25 Oct, 2013

    Those looking for Dan Brown entertainment will quickly be overwhelmed, but those who can respect McCarthy for the dense writer he is and trust in his guidance are in for a dark, complex treat.

  • Off the Black 2006

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Oct, 2013

    "Does James Ponsoldt make films about alcoholics?" is the new "Does a bear shit in the woods?"

    Not a bad first film, but it doesn't help that every character besides Nolte's is underwritten and poorly acted (including DeWitt). The major surprise, though, is how articulate Nolte is here compared to his current indecipherable polar bear self.

  • Notorious 1946

    ★★★½ Watched 02 Jun, 2013

    As with Rear Window, I forget how slow Hitchcock can be. The party sequence and bookend scenes save it, but the DVD should come with a caffeine pill.

  • Wings 1927

    ★★★★½ Watched 18 Sep, 2013

    Was lucky enough to see a copy of the new remastered print on the big screen. Quality.
