  • Getaway 2013

    ½ Watched 30 Jul, 2014

    Morbid curiosity got the better of me. Just awful. Ethan and Selena try their best with maybe the worst direction, editing, cinematography and writing ever allowed to exist on film., I guess. Either way, ugh.

  • Bull Durham 1988

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Jul, 2014

    "The world is made for people who aren't cursed with self-awareness."

    Shockingly literate, with unusually well-drawn characters and sharp dialogue, Bull Durham transcends both the traditional sports movie and the 80s rom-com to create something almost entirely unique--an intellectual film that doesn't condescend to, and in fact appeals to, an average moviegoing audience.

    Other than a cringe-worthy sex scene between Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon--I mean who wanted to see Sarandon eat Costner's chest hair? When was that ever something that people wanted?--this is a pretty good movie.

  • 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.
