  • Rushmore 1998

    ★★★★½ Added 1

    This was a 5, but it loses a sliver of star every time Wes Anderson pumps out another hipster infomercial.

  • Submarine 2010

    ★★★ Added

    As Rushmore was derivative of Harold and Maude, so Submarine is derivative of Rushmore (and Harold and Maude). Never allows itself to be itself, which is a shame, as there's probably a nice bildungsroman somewhere, and the characters never emerg from the murky depths of artifice (terribly witty submarine pun) for long enough to become really knowable or likeable.

    Watch Harold and Maude. Then watch Rushmore. Then watch this.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo 2009

    ★★★ Added

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

    What I least expected about The Girl with the Dragon was that it would essentially be a episode of Morse with more brutal sadism and rape, with the wife-beating husband from Lukas Moodysson's Together as 'Morse'. Elicited the same response as an episode of Morse too - good enough to watch, but I won't go out of my way to see the others, and I certainly won't be pulling any of the novels out of my bag on the bus anytime soon.

  • Seachd: The Inaccessible Pinnacle 2007

    I got this added *thrust thrust thrust*
