    The Untold History of the United States 2013

    Watched 25 Nov, 2016

    A deep dive into the growth and development of the United States since World War II.

    If you have the 10 hours to watch the main chunk (11 and 12 are follow ups about PreWW2) it is well worth your time.

    It at some points plays like an American Adam Curtis film but only in small segments.

    The bits that were not Ditko blown up to the big screen were the most formulaic and paint by numbers Heroes Journey stuff in a long while.

    It is a shame the film is generally so conservative because the couple moments it really embraces what it could be were pretty good.

    Baskın 2015

    Watched 12 Sep, 2015

    I saw this movie on 3 hours of sleep after 8 hours of school and a small nap. To say it was the perfect film to basically be in a hazy fever dream state to watch is an understatement. I really enjoyed this and what I think I enjoyed most is how much it is all nightmare logic that doesn't bother explaining a lot.

    The main 'villain' also has an IMPOSSIBLE amount of charisma that when arrives on the scene you are locked into his every word.

    Green Room 2015

    Watched 10 Sep, 2015

    The movie is a lot like the punk music that fuels it and its main characters. Aggressive, fast paced and very in the moment. A really really good modern siege movie with all the characters actually behaving like people would in that situation and succeeding or failing because of it. Good messy action too.
