  • Elf 2003

    ★★★★★ Rewatched

    Each year I find myself worrying that this will have gotten old for me, and each year I quickly lose that fear and I cherish the time sitting with the family laughing and smiling at the warmth and perfect silliness of this film. Ed Asner is such a perfect Santa, and really the entire cast of this is pitch perfect. I said perfect 3 times, and maybe you can pick a nit here or there, but this really is a magical holiday film.

  • 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.]

    ★★★★★ Watched 31 Aug, 2012

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

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 11 Sep, 2014

    I definitely didn't anticipate this being one of my favorite Marvel movies thus far, but really, they just keep getting better and better, so I'm okay with it. Captain America seems boring and whatevs in concept to me, but I'm fully on board with Chris Evans and I love the movie magic of what they've done to bring these comics to life, so this worked out quite well. I don't mean to belabor the point, but the quality of these…
