    Marty 1955

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Jun, 2015

    The climax feels rushed and premature, but the rest of the movie is great.

  • Predator

    Predator 1987

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 25 Jun, 2015

    I feel that this movie is a lot better than most people give it credit for.

  • The Lords of Salem

    The Lords of Salem 2012

    ★★ Watched 23 Jun, 2015

    I would tell Rob Zombie to quit film-making and go back to making music, but after hearing his last album, I think he needs to find a new hobby entirely. Pottery, maybe?

    Beer: Magic Hat Stealin' Time - 3.5/5 - solid summer wheat beer, very drinkable, perfect for a warm night of porch-drinking)

  • Pulp Fiction

    Pulp Fiction 1994

    I can only imagine just how pathetically shitty this would be if made by today's Tarantino.

    Bigger Stronger Faster* 2008

    Watched 16 Jun, 2015 2

    Well made, but heavily slanted toward one viewpoint instead of tackling both sides fairly.

    Beer: Broken Barrel Brewing Company Oculto - 4/5 (infused with blue agave and rested on tequila staves; like Corona, but good; recommended)

  • Jaws

    Jaws 1975

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 20 Jun, 2015

    Movies look like shit today.

    Beer: Susquehanna Brewing Company Shady Spot Shandy - 4.5/5 (better than Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy by a fair margin)

  • Godzilla

    Godzilla 1954

    ★★★★½ Watched 19 Jun, 2015

    This movie is basically JAWS 21 years before JAWS.

  • Jurassic World

    Jurassic World 2015

    ★★½ Watched 17 Jun, 2015

    Felt too much like the most recent Godzilla film. Decent set-pieces with big monsters fighting, but a whole lot of dumbassery otherwise.

  • Inside Out

    Inside Out 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 16 Jun, 2015 5

    I used to think that Monsters, Inc. was the most creative movie ever made. Now I'm not so sure.

    Both films directed by Pete Docter.

  • G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

    G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra 2009

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 07 Jun, 2015 1

    Better every time. Good dumb fun.

  • Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

    Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch 2013

    Watched 27 May, 2015

    Far more terrifying than any horror film.

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015

    ★★★ Watched 22 May, 2015 4

    The Avengers are back in another Hegelian quest to end a conflict they are directly responsible for. Funny, how the world of these Marvel Studios films would be an objectively better place without the heroes.

    I'd write more, but I can't stop thinking about how much better Mad Max: Fury Road is. That's all you need to know. See that instead.
