  • Inherent Vice

    Inherent Vice 2014

    ★★★ Watched 29 Jun, 2015

    Throughout Inherent Vice I was either laughing or confused. I could be wrong, but it seemed as if there was not a single scene where drugs weren't in some way visible, in use, or discussed.

    There are scenes in Inherent Vice you are not soon too forget.

    Inherent Vice could have been somewhat shorter in length and remained just as funny and perplexing, but maybe wouldn't leave you with that surreal, strange, and slightly stoned feeling.

  • Lost in Translation

    Lost in Translation 2003

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 29 Jan, 2011

    I re-watch very few films, but I know I'll keep re-watching Lost in Translation. The lingering and longing are still perfect.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy

    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.

  • No Country for Old Men

    No Country for Old Men 2007

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 Mar, 2008

    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.
