  • The Babadook 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Nov, 2014

    My body is still tingling and tense from the constant chills of this viewing. Absolutely completely unsettling and creepy as fuck. That book is cool as shit, they need to mass produce that thing.

    [edit: oh shoot. it exists. $80 is a bit rich for my blood, but apparently there's a crowd-funding thing going on at the official website... get on this people, and buy me one.]

  • Interstellar 2014

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 22 Nov, 2014

    I needed two viewings (and three less 9% ABV beers, darn you Alamo Drafthouse..) to really appreciate this film. Still don't think it's perfect, but fuck if it's not ambitious as a motherfucker. For real folks, don't drink and Nolan (first viewing at least).

  • My Neighbor Totoro 1988

    ★★★★★ Watched 31 Aug, 2012

    It might be ok if every movie suddenly and magically became this movie. Instant favorite animated film ever.

  • Interstellar 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Nov, 2014

    I'm pretty sure I understood/followed like nothing that happened during this film. But I made sure to watch it in 35mm to make sure it was blurrier, so that's cool. Also, it's Christopher Nolan, Matthew McConaughey, and a bunch of other really decent actors so it was pretty darned watchable. Simultaneously over and underwhelmed, and the more I think about my issues with it, the more those stars up there want to creep even lower.
