  • Splendor in the Grass 1961

    ★★★★½ Watched 09 Nov, 2013

    "Though nothing can bring back the hour
    Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
    We will grieve not, rather find
    Strength in what remains behind."

    Tasteful.

  • Wreck-It Ralph 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Mar, 2013

    Product placement has never been so much fun!
    Character design and settings are just amazing, and despite being full of pop references it never gets too cheapishly mainstream. Loved it!

    Ridiculous.

  • Dorian Gray 2009

    This movie is already an insult just for the simple idea of trying to make an adaptation without considering the meaning of the original novel, not considering the overall poverty of the plot.
    I would say it is a very peculiar example of American catastrophic attempt to make amazing classics appealing to simple-minded audiences.
    The only reason it does not attain my esteem to the original work by Oscar Wilde is that there is no trace of link to it.
    And besides, it's awful even if considered simply as an action movie.
