    The closest thing Netflix has to pornography.

    Boring.

    Best film of 2009?

    Hardly. It's alright, but didn't show me anything I haven't seen in a dozen war films before. I wish the focus was more on the defusing of bombs, because everything else that happened made me sleepy.

    Best directed film of 2009?

    Not at all. Kathryn Bigelow is a damn good director, but this is not even in the running for her best work. Shot in the same faux-documentarian style with a washed-out color palette and substantial…

  • Blue Crush

    Blue Crush 2002

    ★★★ Watched 25 Jan, 2016

    Watched for the surf cinematography and mostly-naked athletic chicks.

    Wasn't disappointed.

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Jan, 2016

    This movie is infuriating.

  • Kristy

    ★★★ Watched 22 Jan, 2016

    Beginning and ending suck. Middle bit is cool. Script was better than the movie, but that often happens in the "development" process.

  • Bone Tomahawk

    Bone Tomahawk 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Jan, 2016

    It's a rare, mark-your-calendar occurrence when my list of complaints after watching a film is empty. I have nothing bad to say about Bone Tomahawk other than I wish I was still watching it.

    See this movie.

  • Hours

    Hours 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Jan, 2016

    Thriller meets drama. I dig it. Simple but hugely effective. I want more movies like this - and if Eric Heisserer is making them, even better.

  • 2 Fast 2 Furious

    2 Fast 2 Furious 2003

    ★★★ Watched 17 Jan, 2016

    Entertaining enough but has no surprises at all. If you've see one movie before - any movie - you probably know how this plays out.

    PS: The attractiveness of Eva Mendes is in direct opposite proportion to her acting ability.

  • Drive

    Drive 2011

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 17 Jan, 2016

    Probably the sexiest movie ever made.

  • Beasts of No Nation

    Beasts of No Nation 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 15 Jan, 2016

    Very well made, but falters toward the end. Third act is easily the weakest when it should have been the strongest.
