  • No Country for Old Men

    No Country for Old Men 2007

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 26 Mar, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    “I was sheriff of this county when I was 25 years old.”

    Of the last 20 years, I’d wager this is the Best Picture movie that has the least amount of people saying it didn’t deserve it.

    No Country for Old Men.

    *SPOILERS AHEAD*

    This would be the first Coen Brothers movie I saw on the big screen and holy crap did I pick the right one.

    I’ll never forget seeing that trailer, I think it was on a DVD.…

  • Birdman

    Birdman 2014

    ★★★★★ Added

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The thing about this movie and the "single shot format" is how much is does resemble theater.

    When I saw Venus in Fur a while ago, I got that same kind of rush and sense of reality watching that as watching Birdman.

    That sense of never taking a break.

    It's just remarkable.

    The whole Film VS TV debate. And talking about what each can do that the other cannot.

    Birdman is a movie that tips the scales back toward film.…

  • The Wolf of Wall Street

    The Wolf of Wall Street 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 10 Jan, 2014 15

    The Wolf of Wall Street. I'm really kinda speechless after watching this movie. I mean.... this movie is @#$%ing INSANE! I don't just mean that in a quality sense.

    I mean this is one of the craziest, wackiest movies I've seen in a long time!

    What I will say is,

    This film.... is the Scorsese film I was waiting for after seeing The Departed.

    I would have MAYBE liked to have only waited 2 years for it instead of 7....…

    Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi 1983

    ★★★½ Added 11

    New Review: letterboxd.com/fabischfactor/film/star-wars-episode-vi-return-of-the-jedi/1/

    8 year old me: "This is the single greatest..."
    23 year old me: "...piece of shit! What's with the teddy bears?"

    There's a LOT to like in this film. But there's more to hate.

    Yub Yub.
