    Jupiter Ascending 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 14 May, 2016

    Unquestioningly beautifully made. Contrary to what I'd heard, I had no problem following the plot, though a good deal of it is indeed a hot mess.

  • Two Men in Town

    Two Men in Town 1973

    Watched 24 Apr, 2015

    Eventually gets to focus upon the point it is making in the final 30 minutes… though i am still unsure if it was soon enough.
    But whew, this last 2 minutes. Jeez.

  • All Night Long

    All Night Long 1962

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Jan, 2015

    Nifty & breezy retelling of Othello in the 60's London Jazz scene. While McGoohan's accent is miserable, he exudes the slimeball darn well in these Johnnie/Iago machinations. But having Dave Brubeck & Charlie Mingus carefully, lovingly captured on film is icing on the cake.

  • Jackass: The Movie

    Jackass: The Movie 2002

    ★★★★ Rewatched 18 Jan, 2012

    I was there opening weekend. However, I'd never seen Jackass' MTV iteration. Walking into this mindless entertainment was unexpected then, but somehow still as enjoyable 10 years later... with the exception of the Snow Cone & the Papercuts. Because I'm still as much of a wuss as I was 10 years ago & can't watch those.
