  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 16 Apr, 2014

    So much fun.

  • The LEGO Movie 2014

    ★★★ Watched 13 Apr, 2014

    Not as good as I'd heard from many adults but it had a few genuinely funny moments and looked great.

  • Captain Phillips 2013

    ★½ Watched 02 Apr, 2014

    For a movie about pirates, hijacking and kidnapping, I found it pretty boring.

  • MacGruber 2010

    Watched 02 Apr, 2014

    Wasn't totally awful.

  • Slacker 1991

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Mar, 2014

    This viewing has corrected my misapprehension that the person on the poster was a man.

  • Before Midnight 2013

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 26 Mar, 2014

    still the shit.

  • Before Sunset 2004

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 24 Mar, 2014

    Trying to decide if I like this better than Sunrise or not.
    I definitely thought I did but after rewatching the two...
    I think this will be something that changes constantly.

    alright, alright, alright.

  • The Dirties 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 09 Mar, 2014

    This was a looot of fun.
    It was nice to see some people acting like high school kids having fun and for it not to feel corny or fake.
    All the referential ish is cool too.
    and then the inception plot

  • American Hustle 2013

    ★½ Watched 02 Mar, 2014

    I can say at this point, having seen I heart huckabees, the fighter, silver lining playbooks and now this, that I am definitely not a David O. Russell fan.

    His films don't so much suck, as be messy, disjointed poor versions of what they could have been. Which in a way is worse.

  • Lone Survivor 2013

    ★★★ Watched 02 Mar, 2014

    Good action sequences with wince-inducing parts.
    It definitely has all the hallmarks of a Peter Berg film.

    I wonder how well it will do outside the home of the brave
