    Somewhere in Time 1980

    ★★★ Watched 26 Sep, 2016 2

    After visiting Mackinac Island, where this was filmed, and seeing so much merch for the movie, I had to see it. It was fun seeing the same streets and paths that I walked down, and Christopher Reeve is so freaking charming.

    Absolutely delightful. I never tire from entering Laika's world to see what they have created.

    Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 02 Oct, 2014

    Not a film that ever feels scary, but I left the cinema uneasy anyway. The mood is masterfully set, as always, by David Fincher and his frequent collaborators Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The score and lighting can turn scenes that seem straight out of a romantic comedy into something foreboding. But this film isn't afraid to be funny either. It is definitely Fincher's most comical work and dark humor seems to be something he can do very well.


  • Nightcrawler

    Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Oct, 2014

    Jake Gyllenhaal terrified me in this. I was constantly made uncomfortable by him. But really, the true villain of this piece is the media. Between this and Gone Girl, the news has become the BIg Bad of 2014.
