  • How to Train Your Dragon 2 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Feb, 2015

    Damn good movie, but maybe not quite as strong as the first. This definitely peaks at the midpoint. With a stronger finish, we could have Pixar-level quality on our hands.

  • Dredd 2012

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 20 Feb, 2015

    This movie is not destined to be an action classic; it already is one.

  • Edge of Tomorrow 2014

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 20 Feb, 2015 3

    This movie helped me believe in movies again. It's everything a movie could - and should - be.

  • The Killing 1956

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 14 Feb, 2015

    Such an elegant film. Love the use of foreground imagery.

  • The Asphalt Jungle 1950

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Jan, 2015

    Story moves slow, but the sheer amount of filth on this movie makes it consistently engaging.

  • Key Largo 1948

    ★★★★½ Watched 27 Jan, 2015

    The most underrated work from everyone involved.

  • Live and Let Die 1973

    ★★½ Watched 26 Jan, 2015

    This feels less like a movie and more like James Bond the TV show. One of the later seasons, 7 or 8, long after they had run out of ideas, but managed to get a grant to film in Louisiana and blew all the money on a speedboat chase equal parts awesome and ridiculous because they knew nobody was watching.

  • Inherent Vice 2014

    Watched 26 Jan, 2015 3

    I have one general rule with movies: make me give a fuck.

    After watching this movie, I still have all my fucks.

  • Late Phases 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 25 Jan, 2015 5

    Late Phases is the greatest werewolf movie ever made.

    By far.

  • The Theory of Everything 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 25 Jan, 2015 3

    I liked this more than The Imitation Game. Solid work with great acting, but not something I have the desire to watch again.

  • Out of the Past 1947

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Jan, 2015

    Not my favorite film noir, but a damn good one.

    Beyond-incredible dialogue.

  • Ida 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Jan, 2015

    An 80-minute masterclass in framing and shot composition.

    One of the best recent examples of visual storytelling.
