  • Dallas Buyers Club 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Feb, 2014

    A bold and moving true story that stays with the viewer long after the final credits rolled. A lot of attention had been payed to Leto - and rightfully so - but McConaughey's performance is simply stunning.

  • The Savages 2007

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Feb, 2014

    I watched this film the day that the news of Philip Seymour Hoffman's death came in. It made what is already a sad but touching film all the more emotional, for his talent was boundless and commitment unwavering. Great performance from Linney too.

  • Ender's Game 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 18 Nov, 2013

    I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I can't explain exactly what it is, but it just spoke to me in a way not many films have lately. Asa Butterfield is an extremely talented actor, and carried this space adventure with aplomb.

  • Prisoners 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Nov, 2013

    Less of a film about a kidnapping, and more of a portrait of the very worst of humanity. Great performances and pacing. The ending is brilliant.

  • The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 2011

    ... I literally want to cut my eyes out of my face.

  • The Twilight Saga: Eclipse 2010

    ½ Added

    Once again, nothing happens and I'm expected to enjoy it. This entire "saga" is not only an insult to film, but to storytelling in general.

  • The Twilight Saga: New Moon 2009

    ½ Added

    How they managed to film anything they deem worth watching with no plot is beyond me.

  • Twilight 2008

    Added

    Pretty darn horrible, if I do say so myself.

  • Hannah Montana: The Movie 2009

    ½ Watched 02 Jul, 2013

    The inspiring story of a bad wig trying to find itself.

  • Geek Charming 2011

    ★★★ Watched 01 Jul, 2013

    Another surprisingly fresh film from Disney. While it does incorporate typical teen stereotypes, it also goes out of its way to break some of those perceptions as well. Somewhat predictable, but in a warm and fuzzy way.

  • Lemonade Mouth 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Jun, 2013

    Pleasantly surprised by this Disney endeavour. Although fitting in with the typical Disney aesthetic, I found the characters to be quite a bit more complicated than expected. Props for the terrific music that heightened the believability of their rise to popularity, and ultimately felt like a struggle for acceptance rather than notoriety.

  • The September Issue 2009

    ★★★½ Watched 24 Jun, 2013

    Lagged in places, but was an intriguing look behind the scenes of an empire built on the opinion of one woman. The director hit all the emotional cues needed to make even the average Target tragic feel invested.
