  • Coherence 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Aug, 2014

    One of the best of the year. Brilliant story, strong improvisers and tense-as-fuck direction. A more mainstream, more emotional Primer. A little better, even.

  • Detention 2012

    ★★★½ Rewatched 22 Aug, 2014

    The first four minutes elevate the remaining 90 but despite its flaws, it remains an ambitious time-capsule of a film that you can't help but admire for all its 2011 Chutzpah and Joseph Kahn's dare-I-say auteur-ish style.

  • The Lizzie McGuire Movie 2003

    ★★★ Rewatched 12 Jul, 2012

    A classic. It's terrible in almost every way. But it's a classic.

  • Tarzan 1999

    ★★★★ Rewatched 21 Jun, 2012 2

    This film is actually excellent. I hadn't seen it since childhood, and now I remember why I liked it. It wasn't the jokes--they were childish and fairly inane and I recognized that back then as well. It was the plot, the characters, and the music. The drama of this story is alternately light and dark but always has a strong sense of character and narrative drive--Tarzan is actually a BRILLIANT drama, with some catchy songs. Also President Grant from Scandal is Tarzan. He would be Tarzan.
