  • Space Station 76 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 28 Aug, 2014

    Full disclosure, I worked on this movie all the way back in pre-pro. That said, it's a funny, emotional, character-driven examination of growing up in the seventies. Well... space in the seventies. Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Mike Stroyanov and Marisa Coughlan get to play amazing characters and really flex their acting chops. Wilson especially shines as a character who would best be described as "closeted Ron Burgundy".

    Kudos to all involved on making an (inter)stellar feature film.

  • 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.

  • 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.
