  • Pain & Gain 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Jul, 2014

    This is one of the most flagrantly entertaining movies I've ever seen, as well as the funniest comedy (albeit dark comedy) to come out in at least a decade.

    Michael Bay needs to make more movies like this. He's not a bad director when given the right material to work with.

  • Devil in a Blue Dress 1995

    ★★★ Watched 23 Jul, 2014

    This movie mimics the most basic elements of the film noir style, but fails to include the principal ingredient - darkness. This is not a film noir; it's just a film. It's a decent film, but it fails miserably at being noir on any level other than the most stylistically superficial. With more dedication to itself (or to the true noir style), it could have been pretty great.

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

    I don't trust anyone who dislikes this movie.
