  • Force Majeure 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 30 Oct, 2014

    Remind me to never go on a family skiing trip.

  • Birdman 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Oct, 2014

    Liking this film isn't as immediate as others I've seen this year, but it still packs a wallop. The craft of this picture seeps out of every frame. The terrific ensemble cast that should be a lock for the SAG award and the wonderful cinematography all really bring home this story about Broadway and Egos.

  • Batman 1989

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Oct, 2014

    I feel like this film is very much a product of its time. It's really hard to judge it considering the material that has been made since with not only the Nolan movies, but the Animated series as well. Keaton doesn't really get to show much of his acting ability since that is all saved for Jack. There's some scenes that made me chuckle since that is exactly how I envision the Joker, but Ledger took it further. I'll try not to be too hard on it, but I'm not in love with it for sure.

  • Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part III: Rebellion 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 07 Dec, 2013

    A fun Clusterf*ck. You need a Ph.D in anime to be able to follow everything that happens. Luckily I have one and I enjoyed what I saw. Diminishes the greatness of the original series, but only by a little.
