    Amy 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Jul, 2015

    Intensely gripping retelling, pictured with existing footage exclusively. Permeating through it all is an immense duality, like a pendulum swinging back and forth, throwing you from raw beauty into raw destruction.

    Get on Up 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 10 Jul, 2015

    Surprisingly good biopic with stunning performances. Granted, there may be little that calls for it, but I found the editing and the fourth wall breaks refreshing and clever. Funny too. And then there's the magnificent music, which is abundantly present.

    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.

    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.
