  • Drew: The Man Behind the Poster

    Drew: The Man Behind the Poster 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 29 May, 2016

    Nice insightful documentary about the most influential poster artist to ever live, an illustrator whose incredible pictures made believers out of the hardest skeptics(even in cases of truly awful shit like 'Masters of the Universe').

    Was interesting seeing huge influential directors gush so uncontrollably about a "lowly'" illustrator. My only complaint, not about the quality of the documentary itself, which is rather standard, but rather with the views of the interviewees, was an overall demeaning and frankly insulting stance on digital art. Spielberg in particular pantomimed the process of digital artwork to slapping his hands around on a imaginary keyboard like an imbecile.

    Disney's most lively, charming, consistently toned and most gorgeously designed film.

    Nice to see some defense for E.T.

    While not necessarily a good game, it was a very ambitious game that doesn't deserve to be called the worst ever in any stretch of the imagination.

    Like one interviewee said, "I'd rather play E.T. than any of the Call of Duty games any day".

    So would I.

  • The Dark Knight

    The Dark Knight 2008

    ★★ Rewatched 13 Apr, 2016 6

    It's been 5 or 6 years since I last saw this film, and I gotta say, I'm really quite astonished at how actually, well, not good, this movie is. Sure, I've held the notion that it may be a bit overrated for some time now, but I'm actually quite shocked.

    From the very start, the movie moves at such a frenzied pace, each scene hurrying to get over with. No scenes are really ever given a proper introduction or closing…
