  • Mississippi Burning 1988

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 09 Apr, 2014

    Having not seen this in years, I was excited to revisit it. When I was younger I would watch this film with my mother and I always recalled a story she told me about the film. When my father and her saw this in 1988 in Fort Worth, they came out of the theater that night to the KKK waiting outside. She described the fear that came over everyone there and I have always been so curious about that.

  • The Night of the Hunter 1955

    ★★★★½ Watched 20 Feb, 2014 1

    This overlooked classic is almost dreamlike in how it's made. It's as if the Boogey Man is real and being embodied by Robert Mitchum. Forget about Norman Bates, meeting Harry Powell is like meeting the Devil.

  • The Wolf of Wall Street 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 25 Dec, 2013 1

    Honestly, this was one of the most insane films I have ever seen. It was absolutely bat-shit crazy. If this hadn't been in the hands of one of the finest filmmakers of all time, it would have sucked. The pacing wouldn't have worked, the tone couldn't be sustained and the story would have been too much. So thank you Master Scorsese. Without you this wouldn't have been possible.

    The film itself is one of the best that has come out…
