  • Craigslist Joe 2012

    ★★★ Watched 24 Aug, 2014

    Joe gets embarrassingly emotional at times and the ending is saccharine. But he's a likeable guy and even if he's a young reasonably goodlooking white guy who this was never gonna be a problem for, it's an interesting premise.

  • 20 Feet from Stardom 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Aug, 2014

    So much talent. Worth watching just for the performances and displays of brilliant singing. It assembles a wide array of stars, back up singers and industry peeps to stay interesting.

  • Unhung Hero 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 30 Aug, 2014

    Dude is quite affable. Gets a surprising amount of material out of the idea and ends satisfactorily.

  • The Fault in Our Stars 2014

    ★★½ Watched 29 Aug, 2014

    An admirable adaptation but a lot less enjoyable than the book.

    There's not enough of a film here.

    The poster doesn't match the movie.

    The ending is lame.

    The alexander skarsgaard plot is lame.

  • Charlie Bartlett 2007

    ★★★½ Watched 11 Aug, 2014

    The fact I'm an Anton Yelchin fan probably made this seem better than it is. It's sweet yet sometimes corny, funny yet sometimes unintendedly.
    It's a fun, coming of age film with a little heart but defies being taking too seriously.

  • The Lives of Others 2006

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Aug, 2014

    Very solid, well-constructed film about a very interesting period of Germany's history. Weird to think it's only been 24-25 years since Germany reunified.
