  • How to Train Your Dragon 2 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 17 Jun, 2014

    A more exciting, engaging, and emotional, ride in 100 minutes than four entire seasons of Game of Thrones.

    Such a beautiful looking film.

    You know...what I could see when I wasn't quietly weeping.

  • Godzilla 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 15 May, 2014

    Take note, del Toro. *THIS* is how you do a big, dumb monster film.

    A little saggy around the middle, but delivered pretty much exactly what I wanted from a Gojira feature.

  • The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Jul, 2012 3

    "Review contains spoilers"...well, no it doesn't...but I don't want to detract from your enjoyment with my gripes.

    Short version:

    Good. Parts were great, the last 45 minutes especially, but the whole...good.

    More complete thoughts below the line!


    I went in with really high, hyped up expectations...and it didn't meet them. It's by no means a *bad* film.

    The word that constantly comes to mind is "messy". I think Nolan just tried to get too many plates to spin at…

  • Clue 1985

    ★★★★ Rewatched 01 Apr, 2012 1

    Still as funny the tenth time through as the first (in fact it's probably better). Hilarious dialogue zings between the ensemble cast and Tim Curry's Wadsworth steals practically every scene he's in. The multiple endings add a nice twist to the proceedings, too.
