  • Fading Gigolo 2013

    ★★ Watched 05 Sep, 2014

    Easy watch but the script isn't great. The combination of undeveloped characters with unclear motivations and constant plot holes (albeit mostly nit-picky) made it a lot less fun.

    Woody Allen is funny, but the majority of the film's humor falls flat and I simply don't care about anyone in the film.

  • Key Largo 1948

    ★★★★½ Watched 02 Sep, 2014

    I never get sick of this film. So many interesting characters with such fascinating dynamics. Tremendous performances by tremendous actors.

    I enjoy the music, the direction, and the dialogue, but the suspense of the impending storm mixed with Bogart's ticking clock is what keeps me enthralled for the entire runtime.

  • 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 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.
