  • Kiss Kiss Bang Bang 2005

    ★★★½ Rewatched 14 Dec, 2014 1

    Felt great to finally watch something after my hiatus.

    Way better than I remember it. You really notice a lot more plot elements that the film pokes fun at itself and the buddy-cop genre in general. Great ensemble, and I'm still upset that Val Kilmer doesn't get better roles like Gay Perry, here - he's on par with RDJ here.

  • Mud 2012

    ★★★★ Rewatched 11 Aug, 2013 11

    I re-watched Mud tonight to see if it could live up to my previous viewing. Much like The Place Beyond the Pines, it does add up but it actually improved. TPBTP had one of the greatest acts of the century but faltered after its first 40 minutes. Jeff Nichols’s Mud, however, doesn’t ever really falter at all – consistently great cinema.

    What my re-watch showed me, was that it gets the little things right to amplify the big picture of…
