    ★★★★ Watched 22 Nov, 2015

    I had a big dumb grin on my face throughout most of this film. Super sweet with a ton of heart and a fantastic lead in Ronan

  • The Overnight

    The Overnight 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Nov, 2015

    Someone like Jason Schwartzmann is necessary in mumblecore movies like this to really take them to the next level. This film is constantly entertaining and rides the line of discomfort so well.

    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.
