    It drags in the middle but overall Fritz Lang created something aMazing. Filmed in 1931, it's such an understatement to say the film was ahead of its time. I always heard this film influenced so much that came after it, and I can see why now. It's filled with creative shots, an imaginative plot, great writing, and unique perspective-taking. The last fifteen minutes are perhaps the best part of the entire film and more inspired than almost anything I've ever watched up to this point.

    Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse 2015

    ★★★ Watched 08 Nov, 2015

    A lot of gross-out humor and juvenile guy jokes, but generally, an entertaining film for the zombie genre.

    I always like to make a note of zombie prowess. Here it was bit unusual. These zombies were mostly the shuffling variety until they spotted/smelled/heard something. They would then run and move like regular people. Not your typical representation, but the zombies were a bit incidental to a movie that was supposed to be about zombies.

    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.
