    Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Mar, 2015

    I loved the abstract qualities of this, and I kind of wish it was more abstract than it already was. Everyone in the theater I saw this with was laughing for most of it, but I found it far more sad than funny.

    This movie shares a lot of qualities with last years Under The Skin, which is why I enjoyed it so much. Both involve women traveling in an unknown world, both visually stunning, both have a very limited knowledge of the places around them, but Kumiko doesn't have that uniqueness about it that Glazer's film had. Regardless, it's a sad yet still enjoyable ride.

    So this does it. This ends my King Kong marathon.
    1933, 1976, and 2005.

    What did I think of Peter Jackson's adaption?
    I've got to say, pretty dang awesome.

    Jackson captures the feel and essence of the thirty's so incredibly well, that my favourite parts of the movie were that in the beginning and the end when we spend time in New York City. His attention to detail is extraordinary. The original clocked in at an hour and forty-six minutes,…

    Raiders of the Lost Ark 1981

    ★★★★★ Watched 10 Feb, 2014 1

    There is nothing new to say about this movie: it's iconic. It's fun. It's suspenseful. It's violent.

    It's a classic.
