  • Phenomena 1985

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Sep, 2014

    Creepers cut. So what if the whole thing doesn't make any sense: Donald Pleasance entomologist + chimp assistant = your argument is invalid.

  • Blessed Event 1932

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Aug, 2014

    Whoa! This movie moves at such a breakneck pace it's libel to give you whiplash. Careening from melodrama to comedy to gangster flick all barely held together by Lee Tracy's magnetism and rapid-fire delivery. It shouldn't work but it does.

  • Black Moon 1975

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Jun, 2014

    Malle's enigmatic, surreal, dreamy riff on Alice in Wonderland. Strange that I've never watched this before considering it's right up my alley. As Malle deliberately avoided a clear plot, BLACK MOON seems a little unfocused so I'm not head over heels but I highly recommend it for fans of oneiric cinema. It's certainly one-of-a-kind and Cathryn Harrison (in the lead role of Lily) is a pretty magnetic presence.

  • X-Men: Days of Future Past 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 23 May, 2014

    Pretty satisfying for this old X-fan. Meshing the two tones of the timelines a little clunky but I still dig the Stewart/McKellen chemistry. Also, Jackman's bod deserves a half star all it's own.
