  • A Field in England

    A Field in England 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 31 Jul, 2014

    Unlike anything else I've seen. You probably already know this film isn't for everyone, but I was able to get into the creepy, psychedelic vibe, even if the plot (what little there is) remains difficult to follow. An anomaly, for sure, but with some effectively unsettling moments and memorable imagery.

  • I Married a Witch

    I Married a Witch 1942

    ★★★½ Watched 28 Jul, 2014

    Light and enjoyable romantic comedy that served as partial inspiration for the 'Bewitched' TV series twenty years later.

  • The Kid

    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''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?
