  • To Die For

    To Die For 1995

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Jul, 2015

    Caught this while flipping through the channels. Hadn't seen it in years and Nicole Kidman gives a better performance than I remembered.

    And, on top of that, she's hotter than a billy goat eating pancakes in the middle of the desert during the summer.

  • Smokey and the Bandit II

    Smokey and the Bandit II 1980

    ★★½ Watched 25 Jul, 2015

    The typical "sequel not as good as the original" caveat, bit well worth the watch for Jackie Gleason's perfection of the Buford Justice rol .

    Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Jul, 2015

    Very well-crafted character study. I found the film to be lacking when it comes to plot. Not a lot actually "happens" but the character arc from two bit thief to media mogul of Video Production News makes it well worth a watch.

    If it bleeds, it leads.

  • Inherent Vice

    Inherent Vice 2014

    ★½ Watched 28 Jun, 2015 2

    A drug addled detective and fuckin' hippies in the 1970s - full of potential, but I felt let down. Not groovy.
