  • The Ladykillers

    The Ladykillers 2004

    ★★★ Watched 27 Aug, 2016

    This is waaaay better than I remember. Don't get me wrong, The Ladykillers is certainly minor Coen Brothers, but the film is wholly entertaining. There is something missing - not all the comedy hits, the cadence of language tends to distract, and there isn't quite the depth of most other Coen Brothers fare, but the film does look great, sound great, and keeps you engaged. Glad I gave it another chance.

  • Bone Tomahawk

    Bone Tomahawk 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 27 Aug, 2016

    Scary and slow burn western that is phenomenally effective. This is a wonderful film that touches you viscerally throughout the entire run time, and well after.

  • 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.
