  • Mommy 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 25 Jan, 2015

    An absolutely outstanding piece of cinema that left me emotionally drained and in awe of Xavier Dolan's ability to craft such an epic tale of mother and son.

    The changes in aspect ratio were a stroke of genius and packed a way bigger punch than I would have expected, and almost demand that this be seen on the big screen.

    Amazing, award-worthy performances by Antoine-Olivier Pilon, Suzanne Clément, and Anne Dorval, and some FANTASTIC cinematography. This movie looks so f-ing good I want to go through the pain of watching it again just to experience those visuals.

    If your vagina is gushing blood and maggots, your eyes are bleeding, your fingernails are falling off, and your hair is coming out in clumps you'd probably go to the hospital right? Apparently not if you're a self-centered twenty-something. In that case, you go to work, then try to win…

  • The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 21 Jan, 2014

    When Gareth Evans’ The Raid was first unleashed into the world in 2011, I stated that it was the best action film to be released in decades and one of the best ever made. Now, just two years later we have The Raid 2, a movie that had some seemingly insurmountable shoes to fill. Evans apparently knew he had to up the ante, because everything in this sequel is bigger and better. While the first entry was isolated and pure…
