  • Inside Llewyn Davis 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Jan, 2015

    Probably my favorite Coen flick so far. The humor, dialogue, music and cinematography are fantastic. Had a semi-permanent grin on my face for pretty much the whole 104 minutes.

  • The Wind Rises 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Jan, 2015

    Terrific storytelling again from Miyazaki and the whole Ghibli crew. Visually stunning, just not with the usual Hollywood blitz. Somehow that low frame rate typical for anime enhances that unique, romantic aesthetic. Sound and music in particular are truly spectacular as well.

  • 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.

  • 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.
