  • Leviathan

    Leviathan 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    'Leviathan' starts out a little slow but ramps up to a completely enthralling experience.

    Plot and character moves unexpectedly but naturally, and the result is a suspenseful film that seamlessly shifts from legal drama to deep character study. All characters seem fully formed, original, and believable, and the setting is beautifully captured. This is a great film.

  • Three Amigos

    Three Amigos 1986

    ★★★½ Rewatched 18 Jul, 2015

    Three Amigos certainly isn’t a perfect film, but it is flat out funny. Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, and in particular, Martin Short are absolutely hilarious.

    Nothing really stands out as original in terms of plot or visual style, but this is a personal favorite that is immensely quotable and easily consumable.

    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.
