  • Johnny Firecloud 1975

    ★★★★ Rewatched 16 Aug, 2014

    I'm not sure if the pay off delivers, but the film is a great revenge story, and is much more thoughtful than your typical explotation flick.

  • The Expendables 3 2014

    ★★ Watched 15 Aug, 2014 3

    I spent a large part of the film trying to remember if it is Antonio Banderas or Antonios Banderas. I also spent a large part of the film trying to decide if Antonios is a real name.

  • The Shawshank Redemption 1994

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 13 Aug, 2014

    This film does not get old, it does not feel dated, it does not feel associated with being made in a given time period or movement. This film exists in movie time, the greatest time period of them all.

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 12 Aug, 2014 2

    Still my favourite film of the year so far.

  • Miami Connection 1987

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 10 Aug, 2014 5

    Cocaine is bad news.

  • Deadly Friend 1986

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 10 Aug, 2014

    I an immensely interested in seeing the originally intended PG cut off this film.

  • Killer Nun 1979

    ★★★ Watched 09 Aug, 2014

    Like Doubt, but imagine that Meryl Streep's character has had brain surgery, is addicted to morphine, and also murders people.

  • Into the Storm 2014

    Watched 08 Aug, 2014 7

    "This is the biggest tornado I have ever seen"

    While there are money shots throughout the film that deliver, with one in particular in the third act that delivers in a huge way, this movie is brutal and should be avoided. The found footage aspect is handled poorly, the performances are bad across the board, and the film is simply just boring.

  • Death Bed: The Bed That Eats 1977

    ★★½ Watched 04 Aug, 2014 1

    Yes, the film lives up to its title.

  • At Berkeley 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 03 Aug, 2014

    When it comes to Frederick Wiseman films, I basically just watch them when I have the chance, but I never seek them out, because they are so hard to track down. With At Berkeley, I simply watched it because the opportunity was there, though admittedly it took me a couple days to get through it. Basically, Wiseman takes you on a class hopping trip for four hours around the Berkeley campus. He never really dwells too much on any individual,…

  • Cloud Atlas 2012

    ★★★★ Rewatched 02 Aug, 2014 3

    I hope that when I die I'm reincarnated as Halle Berry playing a white woman.

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★★ Watched 02 Aug, 2014 2

    The directors clearly know how to direct action, and the fights, and particularly the Nick Fury car chase, are fantastic. It's super unfortunate that the story is lame, and that the movie feels like it goes on for ages. There are a bunch of twists and turns in this, but they all are eye rolling and had me questioning why this had to be so convoluted. As well, add this to the battle over city list, as there is a huge long scene of that.
