  • This Is 40 2012

    ★★ Watched 22 Oct, 2013

    There was a time when Apatow's name would make me very excited for a project, but over the past few years the quality of his work has been on a decline. This movie doesn't come close to its sort-of prequel "Knocked Up." In fact, much of it was a bore. Is it supposed to be a comedy? There were some laughs, but few and far between.

    Instead of "This Is 40", I recommend you watch "I Love You Man."

  • Stoker 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Oct, 2013

    Great performances. Amazing visuals. Extremely unsettling. Park's English debut doesn't disappoint.

    I was also pleased to discover afterwards that it was filmed in Nashville, where I lived for a few years.

  • V/H/S/2 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Oct, 2013

    A nice collection of short stories told in the found footage format. I enjoyed this one more than the first (also a good watch).

  • The Hitcher 1986

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Oct, 2012

    There's something I love about road thrillers set in the west. The landscape naturally complements the genre. The fact that there are few people and fewer places to hide really adds to the tension. This is a great example. The minimal, almost ambient score. The brilliant villain. You always know that the Hitcher is somewhere out there, and you can't wait to see what happens when he shows up.

    Great performances by all of the main characters - Hauer most of all.
