  • Citizen Kane

    Citizen Kane 1941

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Apr, 2015

    Despite a somewhat jarring start, still surprisingly watchable. Really felt like watching The Wolf Of Wall Street of its time.

  • A Most Violent Year

    A Most Violent Year 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 13 Apr, 2015

    This one wonderfully manages to capture a time frame and vibe – it oozes athmosphere. Loved how they avoided the typical "good guy descends into a downward spiral of violence against his own will" angle, and instead focused on elbow grease and mid-level politics. You don't need 30 dead bodies for a genuine sense of fear and violence.

  • The Yes Men Fix the World

    The Yes Men Fix the World 2009

    ★★★½ Watched 27 Apr, 2013

    The subject matter: 5★. The film itself: 3★. The way they take a shit with the capitalist ideologists in this film is pure gold. They set the most ludicrous traps and still people step into it. As a documentary however, there's still some work into making it a more coherent, interesting whole.

  • The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 24 Jan, 2013 3

    I can't really comment on the pace or the length of this movie, as I was just so incredibly impressed with what was on the screen. Hell, I had gladly sat through another hour of it.

    The HFR 3D was just so friggin' amazing and sharp, it was the most impressive thing I've ever seen in cinema. Maybe after the next viewing I'll have a clearer opinion of the film as a whole, but now I just have to give this 5 stars.
