  • Good Morning, Vietnam 1987

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Sep, 2014

    It's Robin Williams' world and everyone else is just actors in it. But really, there was no conflict for most of the film, just romantic filler between Robin Williams radio show.

  • Children of Heaven 1997

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Aug, 2014

    The childlike curiousity is very sweet, and the film touches greatness many times, but the basic plot isn't quite enough to sustain 90 minutes.

  • L.A. Confidential 1997

    ★★★★½ Watched 03 Dec, 2012 1

    Curtis Hanson's L.A. Confidential is a jazzy crime drama that pays homage to film-noir that preceeded, namely Chinatown.

    The performances are memorable, and each character is interesting enough to make you anticipate their next appearance. In my eye, Russell Crowe and Kim Basinger were standouts as a man-beating detective and a prostitute that looks like Veronica Lake.

    I'm going to keep the plot very... hush-hush. This is a film for you to discover for yourself.

  • Mean Streets 1973

    ★★★★★ Watched 22 Aug, 2013 1

    Of all the character's in Martin Scorsese's first masterpiece Mean Streets, the most important is the streets of Little Italy. The streets are not mean, they are made mean by the greedy hoodlums that reside on such roads. De Niro steals the show as a debt-heavy, trigger-happy hoodlum Jonny Boy. Harvey Kietel's duty as a conflicted man between mob and religion is good too. Scorsese's use of familiar locations, color, and music work beautifully. It's a wonderful precursor to GoodFellas.

    Maybe someday I will watch this and GoodFellas back-to-back. That wouldn't be bad.

    EDIT: My grammar here blows. Oh well.
