    Crazy, Stupid, Love.


    I think I'll always have time for this film. You can't say it's unpredictable, but seeing it again reminded me just how great the cast is (and reaffirms my love for the Gos/Stone combo, having recently seen La La Land).

    Perhaps I'd like this if I was young, but boy did those animated children creep me out.

  • Drive



    A beautifully crafted film, with consideration in every shot and a kick-ass soundtrack. Winding Refn certainly earned his Best Director award at Cannes this year, helped greatly by the outstanding performances of Gosling and Mulligan. I'll definitely need to see this again, and while I'm not much a fan of ultra-violence I couldn't imagine it working any other way in this film.

  • Inception




    So epic it hurts. I'm willing to gloss over the few plot questions it leaves and just be enveloped by the killer combo of Nolan & Zimmer (whose soundtrack, incidentally, makes *everything* feel epic if you put it on loud enough).
