  • The Jungle Book

    The Jungle Book 2016

    ★★★ Watched 26 Apr, 2016

    I'm pretty sure every single talking animal out acted the kid. Bill Murray steals the movie.

  • The Lady in the Van

    The Lady in the Van 2015

    ★★★ Watched 24 Apr, 2016

    Maybe it's the British subtly throughout, or possibly the lack of a single character worth rooting for. Lady in The Van is well acted, but lacking a story or sense of humor that it seems to think it has simply through the (based on a) true story driven by committed performances by the two leads. The last act goes off the rails in a way that is not so much inventive as it is annoying.

    Traffic 2000

    ★★★★ Rewatched 10 Jan, 2013 1

    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.
