  • The Diary of a Teenage Girl

    The Diary of a Teenage Girl 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Jan, 2016

    "So, maybe nobody loves me. Maybe nobody will ever love me. But maybe it's not about being loved by somebody else."

    If I had the opportunity to see this before voting last year, Bel Powley would've made my ballet extremely difficult.

    The movie is fine, although that's a pretty extreme case of sexual awakening. Helps that it takes place in the 70s. Just remember, women are allowed to be sexual as well.

    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.

  • Birdman

    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.
