  • Threads 1984

    ★★★½ Watched 06 Jul, 2014

    According to this movie, nuclear holocaust would NOT be all fun and games. At least, not in England.

  • Snowpiercer 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Jun, 2014

    Consistently inventive, weird, propulsive and darkly funny all while taking its absurd premise of everyone living on a massive train seriously (and taking that premise to its logical conclusion). The train itself reminded me of the satirical dystopia of Terry Gilliam's BRAZIL (who's explicitly referenced in this) and George Miller's world-building masterpieces MAD MAX: BEYOND THUNDERDOME and BABE: PIG IN THE CITY.

    Also...

    "And I know that babies taste the best," is a line you won't soon forget.

  • Pulp Fiction 1994

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 13 May, 2014

    As far as I'm concerned, Pulp Fiction is the Citizen Kane of movies.

  • Only Lovers Left Alive 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 08 May, 2014

    Jim Jarmusch's too-cool-for-school vampire hangout movie makes True Blood look like the Muppet Babies.

    Actually, Muppet Babies makes True Blood look like Sesame Street.

    No, Sesame Street makes True Blood look like, uh, VeggieTales.

    I guess the point I'm trying to make is that True Blood isn't very good, or is for very young kids.

    True Blood! New season starts Sunday, June 22nd! Only on HBO!
