  • Young Frankenstein 1974

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 29 Oct, 2014

    Few movies make me smile as much as Young Frankenstein does when I watch it. Hell, few people make me smile as much as I do when I watch Young Frankenstein. It's just so damn charming, with it's perfect comedic timing, gorgeously lavish faithfulness to the classic Universal Frankenstein films and impeccable casting.

    ★★★★★ Watched 15 Sep, 2013 1

    Not much can really be said about Short Term 12. I'll put it simply; it makes you lose all faith in humanity... and then regain it in the span of 96 minutes. Brie Larson deserves that Best Actress statue now. One of the years best, if not thee best. SEE. IT.
