  • You Can Count on Me

    You Can Count on Me 2000

    ★★★★½ Watched 28 Mar, 2015

    This movie haa just shot really high on my go-to pick-me-up movies. It's almost always sweet, and when it isn't, it's honest.

    Mark Ruffalo is a down-on-his-luck sibling to single mother Laura Linney. Even though he has major problems, he's excellent with the kid (an adorable Rory Culkin). What makes 'You Can Count on Me' great is that Ruffalo and Linney's characters fuck up often in the film, but face it like real people.

    Is the movie perfect? No. Writer/director…

    March Around the World - Stop #30: New Zealand

    And like that, I've finished one year of Marching Around the World. It was certainly an awesome experience that I definitely plan on partaking in again next year.

  • L.A. Confidential

    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.

    R.I.P.D. 2013

    Arguably the best movie ever made. That is, if you're good at arguing.
