  • Hail, Caesar!

    Hail, Caesar! 2016

    ★★★ Watched 09 Feb, 2016

    This seems to be Joel and Ethan's crisis of faith and occupation. Too bad it's not very funny or (as is lacking in most of their films) emotionally connected.

  • Three Kings

    Three Kings 1999

    ★★★★ Watched 08 Feb, 2016

    Perhaps the ugliest looking big studio (distributed) film made in the last 20 years. Dark comedy with a heart of gold. And did I mention it's hideous looking?

    Is something wrong with my TV? It's all blue, then orange, then grainy, then ultra clean. Oh wait, nevermind. I'm watching a Soderbergh film. A very good one mind you, but definitely held back a bit by some overt soapboxing.

  • Whiplash

    Whiplash 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 22 Mar, 2015

    I kept waiting for the hysterical chant of, "ANIMAL! ANIMAL! ANIMAL!" at the end.
