  • Godzilla 2014

    ★★★ Watched 13 Oct, 2014

    Sound effects, visual effects, and sound mixing are all there and all fantastic. Unfortunately, it takes too long to get there, and the rest of the film is filled with uninteresting characters passively navigating through plot holes. Underwhelming.

  • The Jerk 1979

    ★★★★ Rewatched 21 Sep, 2014

    Absurd, goofy, and absolutely hilarious. I love this movie more than he hates these cans.

  • 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.
