  • My Blind Brother

    My Blind Brother 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Sep, 2016

    First things first, Adam Scott's blind character in this movie is such a gigantic douchenozzle that I actually felt sorry for the generally typecast as a douchenozzle Nick Kroll here.

    Seriously, what was up Robbie's butt?

    This was a good movie with good performances.

    It'll make you want to give Adam Scott a swift kick in the nuts, which he kind of deserves in this movie though so fair warning.

  • I.T.

    I.T. 2016

    ★★★★★ Watched 24 Sep, 2016

    An I.T. guy upends the life of businessman Pierce Brosnan. So, basically this a super-serious updating of "The Cable Guy".

    I kid but not really since this psychological thriller-cum-biting social satire about the digital age is basically a gorgeously shot cross between "The Cable Guy" and "American Psycho", with a killer car "karaoke" scene that I found brilliant and creepy.

    This is a great movie. A nice pot-boiler with some satire for good measure.

    Also, Stefanie Scott is Da bomb 4realz :p.

    Awesome movie.

    Lost River 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 07 Apr, 2015

    Production designed like a motherforker and gorgeously, eerily filmed, Ryan Gosling's much ballyhooed directorial debut "Lost River" is a masterpiece and one of the great cinematic discoveries of 2015 so far (though, to be fair, I've known of the movie for years, since it was first announced as "How to Catch a Monster").

    Christina Hendricks from "Mad Men" plays a single mom who gets a job at a seedy club that is kind of like a circus of violence for…

  • Somewhere

    Somewhere 2010

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 12 Mar, 2012

    I love this film. It's easily my favorite film of 2010. Elle Fanning is riveting, Dorff gives the performance of his career (ok, that's not saying much) and while it's more-or-less a companion piece to "Lost in Translation", it's also Coppola's nod to Antonioni. Love it.
