  • Zootopia

    Zootopia 2016

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Sep, 2016

    Zootopia takes the theme of racial tension and illustrates it through animals. It's an incredibly well executed film that excels in both teaching kids the dangers of racially-charged thinking, as well as providing a captivating narrative and top quality visuals for adults.

    There's really not too much to dislike about this film...except Shakira. The film is bursting with wit, the dialogue is fast and effective, the characters are all strongly written, and the plot as a whole is satisfying. The…

    Imperium 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Sep, 2016

  • The Cabin in the Woods

    The Cabin in the Woods 2012

    ★★★★★ Added

    There are few words to describe The Cabin in the Woods other than the greatest of adjectives: phenomenal, innovative, and inspiring come to mind. This works not just as a horror movie, but as a comedy, drama, and even a philosophical expression of art. It also does this without offending or desecrating the legacy of any of these genres. This movie is a glorious combination of everything that there is to be loved about horror movies, and even more. It is an exceptional film, and the best horror movie I've ever seen.
