  • About Time 2013

    Watched 13 Sep, 2014

    If you add time travel to a chick flick, i'm going to like it.

  • City of God 2002

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Sep, 2014

    There's some real powerful scenes in this movie. If you don't speak portuguese, I recommend watching when you're in the mood for caption-watching, because you don't want to miss the story.

  • Senna 2010

    ★★★★½ Watched 11 Mar, 2012

    When Ayrton Senna describes winning a race like taking a powerful drug, you really believe him. Race after race, as he stands on the first place podium pouring champagne over himself, he has a look of pure ecstasy on his face. He loved Motorsport and he loved winning.
    His team doctor recollected Senna's humility being so rare amongst race drivers, and you can sense his personal and professional growth as the film progresses. It drew me in and left me gutted knowing where it ended.

  • Aliens 1986

    ★★★★★ Watched 30 Oct, 2011

    This movie is so great, I'm amazed I never saw it growing up. Modern action movies can't keep my attention like this one could, and this was the extended edition. I'm not sure what was left out in the theatrical cut, but each scene in this seemed essential.
    Also, now I finally understand the context of "they mostly come at night... mostly".
