    Burn After Reading 2008

    ★★★½ Rewatched 19 Apr, 2015

    I hadn't seen this since it came out in theaters and I think I appreciated it a lot more this time around. The sheer absurdity of all these people screwing, killing, and just flat out being weird makes for quite a show. You'll never see Brad Pitt be this big of a dork again.

    True Story 2015

    ★★½ Watched 18 Apr, 2015

    I felt emotionally drained walking out of the theater. Not in a good Zodiac kind of way, either. Other than the interplay between the leads there just wasn't a lot to chew on. The cinematic equivalent of mashed potatoes and not enough gravy.

    Pure magic. Outstanding performances all around, and maybe only the second justified and fully realized utilization of 3D, with Cameron's Avatar being the other. I felt the need to stand up and cheer for the first time since The Lord of the Rings. This is why we go to the movies.
