  • The Shallows

    The Shallows 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 15 Sep, 2016

    There's some up and down in the way the film builds tension, but you have to give it credit for taking chances, sticking to a very simple premise, and delivering some legitimate body horror moments.

  • Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

    Me and Earl and the Dying Girl 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Jan, 2015

    It earned the laughs, the tears and the cheers. Above all, Me and Earl and the Dying girl is earnest and quite wonderful. Also, its in-movie obsession with Werner Herzog warmed my heart.

  • The Bronze

    The Bronze 2015

    ★★ Watched 22 Jan, 2015

    Opens the routine strong, stumbles in the middle and fails to stick the landing. Get it? It's about gymnastics.
