  • Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan 1982

    ★★★ Watched 13 Dec, 2014

    I've seen this at least once before I'm sure but the memory isn't clear. I'm not sure what I thought of it then, but watching it relatively 'fresh', I was pretty disappointed overall. While the film is certainly better than some of the others in the Star Trek franchise, that feels like a pretty low bar. The most amazing thing was the degree to which the 2009 reboot is in many ways the same story; only updated for inflation.

  • Zombieland 2009

    ★★★ Watched 04 Dec, 2014

    Enjoyable enough but loses steam after the first half of the film. For a movie that wants to subvert expectations, the romantic relationship at its core is remarkably pedestrian.

  • Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno 2014

    ★★★ Watched 14 Aug, 2014

    This and the next film are really one story and as a result, it's difficult to properly judge this film on its own. A ton of characters are introduced and very little is resolved. The good news is that with so much going on, things are never boring. I look forward to giving a fuller appraisal in September.

  • Rounders 1998

    ★★ Watched 30 Apr, 2013

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
