  • Out of the Past

    Out of the Past 1947

    ★★★ Rewatched 08 Apr, 2016

    Stunning to look at and a blast to watch, Out of the Past is a very good noir that works because of how it is shot and how well delivered the sharp dialogue is. Although beautiful throughout, some sections seem to lack some energy, putting it a step down from other classic film noir pictures.

  • No Country for Old Men

    No Country for Old Men 2007

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 08 Apr, 2016

    Horror. Western. Noir. Drama. Comedy. Chase. Completely genre bending, No Country for Old Men is a perfect film regardless of how you classify it. Focusing on one good guy, one bad guy, and another guy somewhere in between, the film explores ideas of age, change, and fate through a grippingly clever script both acted and shot exquisitely.

  • 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.
