    2 Guns 2013

    ★★½ Watched 07 Jan, 2014

    Nothing terribly memorable, but duo works well and the set-pieces are decent enough.

  • Caesar Must Die

    Caesar Must Die 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 04 Jan, 2014

    An ambiguous mix of narrative and faux documentary, this finds some compelling drama in the connections between inmates and the Shakespeare they're rehearsing.

    The Kid 2000

    ★★★ Watched 30 Sep, 2012

    Like the most heartwarming extended Twilight Zone episode ever. Actually, it's a light and funny film with decent comedy from Bruce and better from Breslin.

  • The Goonies

    The Goonies 1985

    ★★★★ Rewatched 18 Aug, 2012

    Yes, yes, it helps to have grown up watching this film to really feel the undying love for it now, and it's hard to know what someone coming to it for the first time as an adult would make of it, but c'mon...it's still funny, still exciting, still occasionally hokey, and still makes one regret never finding that trap-laden pirate cave you were sure was somewhere in your own neighborhood. Just me?
