  • Gremlins

    Gremlins 1984

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Sep, 2015

    Joe Dante was the best and everything about 'Gremlins' is a blast. Everything looks great, sounds great, feels great. I believe this entire world and everything that happens within its borders. Even with how insanely dangerous it turns out to be I think I want to live in Kingston Falls.

    The film is tight, has amazing sets and creature effects, and a wonderfully fitting score.

  • While We're Young

    While We're Young 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Aug, 2015

    I am usually a fan of Baumbach's films, and 'While We’re Young’ does nothing to change that. That said, this film is definitely different from Baumbach’s other work. It feels a little more straightforward, a little more reserved, a little more accessible. I don’t think this is definitively good or bad, but the bottom line is that it works both at an entertainment level and a thematic level.

    Stiller’s character is an interesting one, a subject for us to both…

  • 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.
