  • Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 07 Oct, 2016

    It isn't as spectacular as other Lonely Island efforts (Hot Rod and MacGruber, if you count it), but Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is a pretty good send-up of pop music with a ton of laughs. It is varied enough in its comedy, it doesn't overstay its welcome, and the three leads are all charismatic and committed enough to keep you entertained.

  • The Lobster

    The Lobster 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 Sep, 2016

    Society puts pressure on us to find a soulmate.

    People kid themselves into thinking someone vaguely similar to us is that person.

    Single people do not trust anyone and probably shouldn't.

    Depressing, dark, original, wonderful.

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel

    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.
