  • White House Down 2013

    ★★★ Watched 04 Jul, 2014

    Last year I watched Live Free or Die Hard to get some patriotic ass kicking in my life, but this movie takes Die Hard and puts it in the White House! The fun is fun and entertaining in a laughably bad way. Speaking of laughably bad was I the only once who thought the CG looked horrible?

  • The Woman Who Wasn't There 2012

    The documentary is short and fast-paced. The story is very fascinating but I have no sympathy for the main character who manipulates people in such a sick,twisted way it makes me nauseous to think people are that self-absorbed.

  • Enemy 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 25 Jun, 2014 3

    One of my most anticipated of 2014 turns out to be one of the best of the year for me. Some people will go into watching this expecting something straightforward or a standard thriller. This film is definitely more of a complex, psychological film that is creepy and engulfing to watch. Jake Gyllenhaal nails the dual roles, the camerawork and score are all moody and add to the atmosphere. I wish the film was longer and explained some things but Holy Shit, did my heart stop at that ending. Wow.
