    Gravity 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 07 Oct, 2013

    Holy fucking fuck. Alfonso Cuarón did it again, and better than I ever could've expected. And my expectations already were about as high as the movie's setting (space, that is, 'cause I'm super funny).
    This genuinely blew me away on so many levels I don't even know.

    Even if most of the laughs probably weren't planned as such - there were plenty.

    Still dat fanboy bonus.

    ★★★★★ Watched 06 Jun, 2013

    I simply don't get how this would be described as something hollow, cold and superficially shiny. Sure, opinion's a thing, but still...
    This pretty much stays as close to the (as I think, amazing) novel as possible, while putting all of its presentational content on an even grander, more epic scale and losing nothing of the original's sense of intricate, character-driven drama and American allegory.
    Also, this definetly is one of the most visually stunning films I've watched in a…

    Drive Angry 2011

    ★★★★★ Watched 03 May, 2013

    Okay so before you watch this - which you should -, expect the following:
    A bright-blonde Nic Cage escaping Hell in a muscle car, repeatedly being referred to as 'a badass motherfucker' by William Fichtner from the off.

    If that wasn't enough, let me get you some more:
    Your brain might randomly stop working throughout the film. Seriously, there is no need for it whatsoever.
    If said brain IS somehow still running, you might shake your head in disbelief at…

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Apr, 2013

    Pretty much perfect for what it's supposed to be.

  • The Room

    The Room 2003

    Watched 09 Feb, 2013

    Well this was... is... phh... I don't even- IT'S TEARING ME APART.
    One of the most hilarious things I've ever seen in my entire life. This piece of unequaled cinematic dedication defies any description one could possibly try to fit it in.
    It simply needs to be experienced for only getting a glimpse of understanding at the mind-blowing visions of shit this artwork masterfully assembles into something greater than the sum of its douces. Pieces. Whatever.

  • Django Unchained

    ★★★★★ Watched 21 Jan, 2013

    Somehow this was even more perfect than what I had anticipated.

    All jokes aside, though: I haven't felt that well-entertained in quite some time.

  • Battleship

    Battleship 2012

    ★★★★ Rewatched 19 Jan, 2013

    Still dumb as fuck. Still just as entertaining if you switch off your brain.
    There's nothing really that has changed since my first viewing and thoughts on this, so I guess that's a pro.

    I have a feeling this gets better every time you watch it.

  • Prometheus

    Prometheus 2012

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 25 Dec, 2012

    Well, after 4 months, what can I say? Still loving it. Still can't see why people would call it a mishap or even a disaster.
    It still is every bit as amazing, intriguing and genuinely superbly shot as I thought it was the first time I watched it.
    Can't wait to see that titan of a making-of.

    Yes, it is one hell of a long thing. That's what she said.
    But: there can never be enough of pure awesomeness. That's what I, the fanboy, said.
