  • The Godfather: Part II

    The Godfather: Part II 1974

    ★★★ Watched 24 Nov, 2014 1

    I don't know what it is.

    I certainly appreciate the scope and quality of the storytelling in these movies, but I can just never seem to connect with them on an emotional level. They're drier than the Antarctic desert to me. It's in the characters, or the writing, or something, but I can't pin it down. It just doesn't click for me.

    And you know what? I'm not ashamed to feel this way about these movies. I am what I am.

    Her 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 13 Mar, 2014 1

    I really wish my viewing of this hadn't been in an audience where two of the other three people in the cinema were talking and jeering at the screen incessantly. It took me out of the movie and hence I didn't enjoy it as much as I probably could have.

    If Crocodile Dundee wielded action movies instead of knives, this is the movie he would hold up whenever some punk claimed to be wielding an action movie.

    "That's not an action movie. an action movie."

    People talk about films "packing an emotional punch", but never before has a movie made me actually feel physical pain from its emotional content.
