  • Inherent Vice

    Inherent Vice 2014

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 29 Apr, 2016

    Somehow this has become my favorite P.T. Anderson movie. Maybe it won't be if I ever actually figure it out. But for now, I find it endlessly beguiling and just plain fun. (I think there are ten different jokes just in the first minute of the scene where Sportello walks into the goofy rehab center.)

  • Pride & Prejudice

    Pride & Prejudice 2005

    ★★★ Rewatched 11 Feb, 2016 3

    I must’ve seen this when it came out, but I don’t remember it hardly at all. So I was surprised to find out on this second viewing that it looked great, the camera does interesting stuff, and even though I didn’t understand a lot of what the characters were saying, I was definitely into it. Maybe I like this Joe Wright guy. Maybe I’ll even watch Pan! Actually, maybe not. (But maybe Atonement or Hanna.)

    Christopher Reeve, goddammit.

    Also, I actually appreciate the preposterous ending more as I get older. (Maybe as much as I enjoyed it when I was a kid.) It's not sci-fi, it's myth.

    A movie featuring a team of mutant super-assassins hunting down Wolverine … And it sucks? Nice job, assfaces.
