  • Back to the Future

    Back to the Future 1985

    ★★★★★ Added

    All-time favorite film. Purely for nostalgic reasons.

    Word of warning: This film contains way more swearing then you remember it did. Beware before watching with your kids, if they (or you) are sensitive to that stuff.

  • Drive

    Drive 2011

    ★★★ Added

    I'm still chewing on this. There are parts I really enjoyed, and parts I absolutely despised. I imagine that's by design, but it was still hard for me to get behind it. I'll say this though: Beautifully shot, loved the sound and music, and Ryan Gosling did a great job. That first chase scene was a sight to behold.

  • Casino Royale

    Casino Royale 2006

    ★★★★ Added

    Casino Royale ushers in a decidedly new era of Bond. He's rough around the edges, fights dirty, and doesn't always, or should I say rarely, has the upper hand. His interactions with Vesper (who is absolutely amazing) are as charming as they are disarming: "There are dinner jackets and dinner jackets; this is the latter." Wow.

    One of best Bond films yet.

  • The Matrix

    The Matrix 1999

    ★★★★½ Added

    It's been years since I've seen The Matrix, but I'll never forget the first time I saw it. It gets at least an extra star for how much it changed my perspective on action films (and all the knockoffs it inspired afterwards).
