  • Transformers: Dark of the Moon 2011

    ★★½ Rewatched 30 Jul, 2014

    Perhaps I was just getting worn down by this universe, but the best of the bunch, I guess. Michael Bay poaching the Coen brothers actor's stable is also meta-fucking insane.

  • In & Out 1997

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 19 Jul, 2014

    I thought this would be a novelty re-watch, but I think this holds the hell up. For a mid-90's fairly high concept comedy, the laughs come fast and effortlessly, the cast and corresponding characterizations are great(specifically Joan Cusack and Bob Newhart) and 'Macho Man' is a timeless masterpiece we should all be humming as often as possible. The Goofy cartoon inspired, book-on-tape scene remains truly fucking funny. Earnest fluff of the highest calibre.

    One full star is for the soundtrack, which is perfection. If nothing else comes out of my watching this, there will be tracks from the album on my ipod by dawn....

  • A Million Ways to Die in the West 2014

    ½ Watched 03 Jun, 2014

    Full disclosure: I loathe Family Guy(re:insert American Dad, Cleveland Show, etc). It straight up offends me. Not morally or ethically, but as a comedy lover. It's always been lazy, easy and fucking obvious. To those who love it? Sure. Go ahead. I like many horrible things myself.

    When I'm heading into a movie that looks as bad as this did, I'm actually usually a little excited. Odds are in my favour that a few lines, ideas or scenes will wind…
