  • Weiner

    Weiner 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Dec, 2016

    Aptly titled for a number of reasons, Weiner is a fascinating and well-timed look at Anthony Weiner's politicial comeback attempt. A very informative documentary, but also one that tends to take the high road leading to facts, character-focused drama, evaluation of media, and candidly honest footage. The film can sway you from rooting for Anthony to rooting against him in a few mere frames, but this is underpinned with an absolute empathy for Huma Abedin.

  • Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    Hunt for the Wilderpeople 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 03 Dec, 2016

    Charming, funny, touching, and purely entertaining, Hunt for the Wilderpeople is, in one word, "Majestical".

    The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 14 Jul, 2014

    Charming and fun who-dunnit. The usual attention to detail, offbeat humor, and quirky Anderson style are all there. Mixed with interesting animation, period jumping, and aspect ratio tinkering, this is a great watch.

  • Skyfall

    Skyfall 2012

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 06 Jul, 2014

    Works as a spy film, action film, revenge film, and siege film. Does a good job at taking relatively small stakes (for a Bond film), and blowing them up on a grander scale. So easily digestible, this film is fun to watch, has the just the right amount of humor, and is the best looking Bond film ever.
