  • Interstellar 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Nov, 2014

    better than I expected
    suffers from the usual Nolan-isms (sappy/stupid dialogue for one, wrapping everything up in a nice bow, stupid endings) but it was very enjoyable. As long a space movie looks nice I think I could enjoy it

  • Begin Again 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Oct, 2014

    Not as good as Once I think but the transition of a similar story to now hollywood level film set in New York turned out very, very well.
    good songs, good cast, good good.

  • Under the Skin 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 24 Nov, 2014

  • Palo Alto 2013

    ★★ Watched 30 Oct, 2014

    as mediocre as I expected really

  • The Thieves 2012

    ★★★ Watched 25 Oct, 2014

  • 22 Jump Street 2014

    ★½ Watched 28 Sep, 2014

    plot is all over the place, what isn't is basically a rehash of the first film
    a lot less funny than the first to me

  • Edge of Tomorrow 2014

    ★★★ Watched 24 Sep, 2014

    better than I expected but after it is still just a flashy forgettable action film.

  • Waiting... 2005

    ★★ Watched 23 Sep, 2014

    a movie about people stuck in minimum wage mediocrity wasting their lives is kind of as middling as the same thing as real life

  • Tim's Vermeer 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 17 Sep, 2014

    I don't really care about the arguments/methods of the film and and whether they are valid, it made art interesting to me for 80 minutes and that is pretty astounding.
