    Captain Phillips 2013

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 24 Sep, 2016

    Watched Captain Phillips again.

    It's just flawless is what it is.

    Why... the Christ... was Hanks not nominated for an Oscar for this movie?

    I'll never get over how amazing that ending scene is. It's a nothing scene, he's just being checked out by the nurse and... it's more moving than most movies aiming for 2 hours of emotional content.

    Sully 2016

    Tom Hanks…

  • The Wolf of Wall Street

    The Wolf of Wall Street 2013

    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....…

    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.
