  • Psycho II 1983

    ★★★★½ Watched 15 Apr, 2014

    this movie should't be as good as it is. it's so gutsy and/or stupid to even think of making a sequel to one of the most influential and important horror films ever made, let alone a sequel to a HITCHCOCK film. but somehow...

    i was happily surprised to see how successful the…

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 23 Mar, 2014

    The Grand Budapest Hotel is the point where Wes Anderson stopped giving a fuck what you think of his movies. He's been inching closer & closer to this film where every tiny aspect is as designed in live action as was his stop motion film, Fantastic Mr. Fox. With this one, for better or worse, he's playing for the fans. with films like Rushmore & Bottle Rocket, he excelled at placing outrageous characters in drab real world settings. Now every detail is…
