  • Obvious Child 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Jan, 2015

    Brutal Honesty: I skipped this for a long time since it has wrongfully earned the moniker "abortion comedy".
    Obvious Child is more about making mistakes and being adult enough to deal with the consequences. Jenny Slate does a fantastic job conveying the multitude of emotions challenging Donna. If you're, like me, on the fence due to the subject matter, please give it a try. It's worth the effort.

  • The Battle of Algiers 1966

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Dec, 2014 1

    Masterpiece. Plain and simple.

  • 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.

  • 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.
