  • Cuban Fury 2014

    ★★½ Watched 15 Apr, 2014

    Not the best writing; essentially every character but Nick Frost's has no story behind them. But being one-dimensional doesn't stop them from being very funny. The movie's held up by some great comedic performances and some truly hilarious moments.

  • The Congress 2013

    ★★★ Watched 13 Apr, 2014

    Gives you a lot to chew on concerning so many different subjects: identity, entertainment, government, personal choice, drugs, parenting. Going to be thinking about this movie for a while. I'd love to see this again.

  • About Time 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 28 Oct, 2013

    A misleading poster made me expect a lame romantic comedy, but I got something completely different instead. Damn that was good. Don't get me wrong, it was a bit romantic comedy-esque in the beginning but became a whole lot more. The message has been told before, but that doesn't make this telling any less effective.

  • Killing Them Softly 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Dec, 2012

    A slower film, but it has a lot to say. And Jesus Christ that final scene was amazing.
