  • Oculus 2013

    ★★★ Watched 10 Apr, 2014

    Pretty good, harmless horror. Not a bad way to spend a couple hours. Karen Gillan's performance raises it a half-star. Her makeup team's wig work lowers it a half-star.

  • The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Mar, 2014

    Great action, not a great plot, but a lot better than I thought it would be. The emotional arc wasn't executed perfectly through the action--the son could have been more of a threat, rather than the final boss being some random dude--but to watch a movie like this for that is to miss the point. A fun ride.

  • 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.
