  • The Lego Movie 2014

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

  • The Front Page 1974

    I was pleasantly surprised by this, which I didn't expect much from given how perfect His Girl Friday is. I mean, once you've done the gender switch and it was awesome, it seems pretty dumb to go back. But I have to say, I laughed out loud a bunch of times, and when Carol Burnett showed up (unexpectedly to me) as Molly Malone, I was sold on the movie, and it was pretty interesting to see the ways in which it diverged from His Girl Friday (besides the obvious, I mean).

    ★★ Watched 26 Apr, 2012 2

    I figured I'd go ahead and watch this before The Avengers comes out, since I had missed it in theatres the year it came out. "Missed" isn't the right word.

    For a little while I was afraid I'd misheard and it was gonna be all guns, which would've been boring and just needlessly violent (in a boring way). But then the hand-to-hand stuff started, and all of that was awesome. So yeah. Just enough story to string a nearly 100-minute long fight scene on, and that was enough. Also, it was surprisingly well-paced for basically being a long fight scene, with some breather sections in there at just the right times. Definitely had fun with this.
