    WWE Live from Madison Square Garden 2015

    ★★½ Watched 03 Oct, 2015

    This was a glorified house show, which is fine, but that's all it is. Orton/Ziggler vs Sheamus/Rusev, Neville vs Stardust, Team Bella vs Team PCB, and The Dudley Boyz vs The New Day were all mediocre at best.

    Owens and Jericho had a decent match, but weren't given enough time. That goes double for Lesnar/Big Show, which was a "blink and you'll miss it" bout. Cena vs Rollins in the cage was ok too, though the finish was lame. I…

    Sicario 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 04 Oct, 2015

    Sicario is a tense, exhilarating experience. This is a film that sinks its teeth in from the very first scene and sustains that bite until the last frame. With this effort, I don't think it's a stretch to say that Denis Villeneuve is one of the best directors working today.

    The Wolf of Wall Street, Scorsese's 23rd feature and his 5th collaboration with Leonardo DiCaprio, is just damn brilliant.

    It is one of the best films of the year. Every cast and crew member is firing on all cylinders. I was tempted to say this is DiCaprio's Goodfellas in terms of his tenure under Scorsese's wing because it has more in common with that, but from a…

  • Nightcrawler

    Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 07 Nov, 2014

    The final 30-45 minutes of Nightcrawler contain some of the most gripping cinema you will see this year. It is an insane, adrenaline-fueled ending that will have the viewer on the edge of their seat, on pins and needles, white-knuckled, and any other overused critic line you can think of. I'm not sure how interested I would have been in Dan Gilroy's debut had it not been for the magnificent first trailer. The ones that followed weren't as crazy, but…
