  • Paris, Texas

    Paris, Texas 1984

    ★★½ Watched 24 May, 2015

    2015 Movie Project | #10

    I really don't have anything to say. I'd say I'm ambivalent about Paris, Texas but I don't feel strongly about anything in it to really say that.

  • My Winnipeg

    My Winnipeg 2007

    ★★ Watched 17 May, 2015

    2015 Movie Project | #9

    My Winnipeg starts with an interesting premise--recounting the history of the narrator's hometown through the prism of his own memories--and Winnipeg is probably a pretty good city to use for the project. But the first 20 minutes are damn near unwatchable and it gets only marginally better from there. Not sure if the love for this movie is respect for the unique premise or if those people just like watching actors loll about on the screen for no good reason.

    Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home 1986

    ★★★★ Rewatched 05 Dec, 2014

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This was the only Star Trek movie from the original series that I saw as a kid. It left an impression on me and I remember it fondly and watching it today reaffirmed that fondness. Everything seemed to be clicking in this movie between the cast, the direction, the story and its execution. The first 15 minutes of the Enterprise crew in present day San Francisco is some of the best fish-out-of-water stuff you'll find in a movie anywhere.

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2012

    ★½ Watched 04 Jul, 2013

    If you're going to reboot a franchise that's only been dormant for five years, you have to give us some sort of indication that you care. Christ, what a train wreck.
