    Furious 7 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Sep, 2015

    Worth price of admission just for the fight scene involving Paul Walker where they go down a whole flight of stairs. This movie lives in it's own universe and I enjoyed every second of it (almost).

    Brighton Beach Memoirs 1986

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 17 Sep, 2015

    Truly enjoyable and well made film that captures the 1930s perfectly. For whatever reason, this was one of my staple films growing up that I wore out the VHS for. While watching, I tried to figure out why and, of course I had to consider what to rate this on letterboxd. I kept thinking somewhere between 4 and 5 stars- so I decided to go in the middle. But this is one underrated film. There are many other 80s comedies…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Not exactly the most uplifting movie I've ever seen, still this was a powerful, intense and really absorbing story. While one of the more depressing films I've ever seen, it was also exhilirating to watch due to the craft and creativity put into it.

    Fassbender's performance really made the film as did its methodical pace and confident directing. Carey Mulligan was really good also. You could definitely feel the pain of both characters.

    Brandon was just a miserable man, somebody…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I haven't been this undecided and mixed on a movie in a long time. I was really frustrated and disappointed by certain aspects of this yet there were other pieces that I really liked. On top of that, there were probably about 3 or 4 absolutely amazing scenes that really upped the ante and were unlike anything I had seen. Zack Snyder obviously wanted to go big and epic here and he really delivers on that end.

    My biggest complaint…
