  • The Counselor 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 14 Feb, 2014 3

    Extended cut: Bought the blu-ray and was advised to trash the theatrical cut and just watch the extended. Man, what a ride this film is. I'm always curious to see films that are almost universally panned and this one surprised me. Not to say I wouldn't understand why somebody would not like this, but this has "cult film" written all over it. It's not perfect, but it's extremely dark, masterfully written like a jigsaw puzzle and does not sell out. Javier Barden steals the show.

  • Mean Streets 1973

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Feb, 2014

    The film that put Scorsese on the map is flawed yet innovative and raw. Tremendous use of music, including one drunken night with Harvey Keitel in a club. DeNiro is a force to be reckoned with here and would go on the following year to The Godfather Part II...what a run this guy was on for more than 20 years.
