  • Frozen 2013

    ★½ Watched 22 Nov, 2014

    I tend to be more critical of animation due to my illustration background, so here goes nothing:

    Frozen is a sparse and textureless world where none of the important events seem to leave you with any sense of awe or wonder, an unforgivable trait for a fantasy movie if you ask me. Whenever something seemingly important or shocking was happening, it lacked any sort of weight or impression, either due to sterile animation, uninspired cinematography, or lack of proper sound…

  • Monster 2005

    ★★★ Watched 20 Nov, 2014

    I'm glad Kent expanded on the themes of this charming short with her full length reimagining, "The Babadook", but I'm also glad that she made her feature version much more subtle, disturbing, and less typical.

    Quite possibly the most overrated piece of crap ever filmed.

  • The Pact 2012

    ★★★½ Added

    Decent little horror film. Cool points and moments in the plot are derailed a bit by a rather average script and Casper Van Dien doing his best Batman voice.

    Also, this marks my 1000th movie watched. Yipee!
