  • Hoop Dreams 1994

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Sep, 2014

    I couldn't care less about basketball on the professional level, let alone the high school level. But this film isn't really about basketball. It's about two kids with a dream involving basketball, trying to navigate their way through a system that regards them as nothing more than a commodity in order to try to make that dream a reality.

  • Black Dynamite 2009

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 30 Aug, 2014

    Still one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Getting to see it on the big screen with an audience was glorious.

  • 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.
