  • The One I Love

    The One I Love 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 02 Apr, 2016

    While this was recommended to me, I thought I was going to hate The One I Love during the opening. I am not AT ALL a fan of romantic comedies. But this movie took such a wonderful sharp turn, all without being cynical.

    It's not a film you can really talk about without giving spoilers, but if you like philosophy, science fiction, and generally the topic of people relating to one another, I would absolutely recommend this film.

    The Office of vampire movies. While it was amusing, I didn't find myself actually laughing. But it seems like the kind of film that would become more funny the more times its viewed.

    Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Aug, 2014

    I've never enjoyed a superhero movie more than this. While a superhero's abilities often separate him/her from the average person, this film makes the superheroes into a type of everyman. They are more easy to relate to than characters such as Superman or even Captain America. I've never read comic books and have never even heard of these characters, but I'm definitely a fan now. The casting, the special effects, the writing, the tone, everything about this film worked extremely well. I would definitely recommend this to friends--even if they are not into science fiction or superheroes.

    One of the things that makes Javier Bardem's performance so unnerving is that he is not just a hit man, he's also a serial killer. While this can't possibly be the first time such a character has been portrayed, it sure does feel original in the context of this film.
