  • Ex Machina

    Ex Machina 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 27 Aug, 2015

    I wanted to like this more than I did. The movie asks the right questions on an endlessly interesting subject matter, but somehow the plot – especially the final act – feels mediocre. Gorgeous to look at though, with great sound, and Alicia Vikander was a fantastic android.

  • Whiplash

    Whiplash 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 08 Aug, 2015

    The cinematography and editing are incredibly refreshing. The tension is just madness – caught myself holding my breath numerous times. The acting is deservedly unanimously lauded. What a treat.

    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.
