  • Life Itself 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 20 Jul, 2014

    A fine tribute for the man that defines film criticism. I have to wonder what he would've thought of it.

  • Spirited Away 2001

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 18 Jul, 2014

    Easily the best Studio Ghibli film and one of the best animated films of all-time.

  • X-Men: Days of Future Past 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 23 May, 2014

    Easily the best X-Men film. Everything a fan of the franchise could've ever wished for.

  • Caddyshack 1980

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Mar, 2014 1

    On my first watch of Caddyshack, it's much easier to look at as a series of vignettes as opposed to one cohesive film. There's some spectacularly funny moments in Caddyshack, that perhaps elevate the film far higher than its premise would take it.

    Some of the standouts include the synchronized swimming pool segment that was nothing but inspired. Also, Rodney Dangerfield driving his boat through the harbor and how magnificent it was set up. If nothing else, Caddyshack is dream collaboration between many talented comics.
