  • Entourage

    Entourage 2015

    ★½ Watched 21 Jun, 2016

    One long episode of the series, with all the faults and stupidity that plagued the show by the end. Not really deserving of a full review, but I must note that only in a Warner Bros. film would someone mention Armie Hammer and another person says "The Lone Ranger?"

  • The Good Dinosaur

    The Good Dinosaur 2015

    ★★★ Watched 19 Jun, 2016

    There's a drug sequence, a ghost sequence, and some rather fucked up dino on animal violence. Like the realistic backgrounds and cartoony characters, most of this movie doesn't really gel together.

    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.
