  • Stage Fright 2014

    ★★½ Watched 10 Mar, 2014

    I love the short that this director did called The Legend of Beaver Dam, and I was obviously excited about this one. It started out great, and ended great, but everything in the middle had too many montages and felt too much like an episode of what I imagine Glee to be like, and there's a reason I never watched Glee. All in all though, this was a good movie, and there a lot of people will end up loving this unconditionally.

  • The Guest 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 10 Mar, 2014

    Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett are quickly turning into one of my favorite director/writer tandems in independent film. What's impressive about them is that they are able to make films that are markedly more improved than the film they made before. And that's not to say that their films are bad. When you take the quality of film that was A Horrible Way to Die, and expand upon that to make You're Next, and then from there make The Guest, which is exceptional, I can't imagine where they'll go next, but I know I'll be there.

  • Sex Drive 2008

    ★★★½ Rewatched 08 Feb, 2014

    A much better comedy than it appeared it would be on the surface. If you saw this, chances are it was your first exposure to Clark Duke and as talented as he is, he hasn't seemed to have done much lately. The real comedic star of this movie though is James Marsden. Guaranteed every moment he has on screen will make you laugh. This is definitely one of the more underrated comedies of the last few years.

  • 300: Rise of an Empire 2014

    ★★½ Watched 26 Feb, 2014

    An acceptable sequel, matches the visual style of the first, but after so many years, this doesn't seem like much of a must see anymore. But it does some cool stuff, and Eva Green plays a fantastic villain.
