  • Sanjuro

    Sanjuro 1962

    ★★★½ Watched 02 Oct, 2015

    Watched this as part of the Letterboxd Season Challenge, and it's definitely on par with its predecessor Yojimbo. Toshiro Mifune is wonderful as always, his leisurely character a delightful contrast to the high-energy ones around him. I've been paying closer attention to Kurosawa's framing and composition choices with each one of his movies I've seen, and there were some stunning shots here. With so many characters present in nearly every scene, it would have been easy to make it seem…

  • A Knight's Tale

    A Knight's Tale 2001

    ★★½ Watched 25 Sep, 2015

    I was 15 when this came out, and a LOT of my peers saw it and really loved it, but somehow I missed that train and never actually sat down to watch it until today. And... eh. It's fine.

My least favorite thing about the Coens has always been their ending choices, which frequently feel like they just abruptly stopped making the movie, rather than actually *ending* their story. That is definitely the case here, and I am once again left unsatisfied and a little puzzled…

  • Guardians of the Galaxy

    Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 09 Aug, 2014

    At this point, this is my favorite Marvel superhero movie (I had to think for a bit about whether I liked it better than Iron Man, but I'm going to go with yes). It's what I wanted The Avengers to be: a light-hearted adventure with delightful characters and some surprisingly moving emotional moments. And I knew pretty early on I was going to love it. Specifically, the moment where Chris Pratt dances through the alien cave. The humor running throughout…
