  • ABCs of Death 2 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Sep, 2014

    Some were great, some were totally fucked up, some were boring, some were unoriginal. A mixed bag, just like the first one, but I think the overall quality was a bit higher. The directors stayed closer to the theme this time instead of throwing in random, nonsensical things just because they could.

  • Winter's Tale 2014

    ½ Watched 18 Sep, 2014

    Pretty much everything about this movie is bad. The screenplay, the editing, the accents… all of it.

    The "everything is connected" aspect is really forced and is essentially a big red herring. If you want a real "everything is connected" story, go watch Cloud Atlas instead. It's about an hour long but how much better it is than Winter's Tale can't even be quantified.

  • Tusk 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Sep, 2014

    Definitely a strange, strange movie. It takes an unexpected turn or two, and some of the characters are extremely engrossing; you actually lose yourself in it. An extremely original movie that's more thought-provoking than entertaining, but still pretty damn entertaining.

  • 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.
