  • The Spectacular Now 2013

    ★★½ Watched 13 Jul, 2014

    A small town of broken, messed up teenagers destined to soon be broken, messed up adults. Tries to be sweet with casting, music swells, editing, but story wise hints at a cycle of failure that self perpetuates across generations.

    But hey, it's supposed to be a teen love story.

  • RoboCop 2014

    ★★ Watched 11 Jul, 2014

    How do you make a fun movie like ROBOCOP totally unfun? Ask the folks that made this. It's not bad enough to hate. They clearly tried to do something new with it, but that new is force fit into cliches that perform better in other action pictures.

    (Also, I can't watch Jay Baruchel in anything - this, DON PEYOTE - anymore without thinking his animated dragon is about to appear thanks to his voice work as Hiccup to the point of it being radically distracting.)

    ★★★ Watched 06 Jun, 2012

    Ever say to yourself "I wish there were a mod romcom about mathematical analog code cracking with punchcards and LSD"?

  • Brick 2005

    ★★★★ Rewatched 04 Aug, 2012

    Such a beautiful, creative noir piece. Incredibly physical, tense performances. Gorgeous camera work. Dizzying editing. And Joseph Gordon Levitt holds the whole thing together in a way that no other role or director has provided before.
