    Wild 2014

    ★★½ Watched 28 Mar, 2015

    I don't know what I was expecting.

    I was intrigued by Wild because of its focus on the outdoors and hiking. So, when a large portion of the film was spent in flashbacks displaying how Cheryl Strayed fucked up her life and why she was decided to hike the Pacific Crest Trail I was disappointed. But like I said, I don't know what I was expecting; I don't see how this story could solely focus on Cheryl on the trail.…

I did not think it would be that great or that funny, but somehow Martin blended perfect amounts of comedy, action, and drama together to make one kickass film.

    Gravity 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Oct, 2013 13

    Whoa. That was the best thriller I've seen in a long time. I can't even remember a film that "had me thrilled" more than this one; I was literally clenched for 90%+ of this film.

    Unfortunately, when I arrived to the theater someone was in the seat that I had bought for myself so I just snagged another. But then, of course, the rightful owner of that seat came. By this point, George Clooney was regaling the audience with his…
