  • Knocked Up

    Knocked Up 2007

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 13 Sep, 2015

    One of those films that I can't not watch when I come across it on cable.

  • The End of the Tour

    I don't know why I'm surprised by how much I loved this movie but I REALLY loved this movie. At times it feels almost Linklater-esque in that it's literally just two people exploring each other via conversation for the majority of the film and the intellectual chess match is surprisingly captivating to witness. The dialogue sings and the screenplay is fantastic in that it often feels as if there is an act structure within the conversations. Definitely the best work…

    I can't even think of words to describe the ways I love this movie. Masterfully clever, shocking, nail-bitingly tense, hilarious - the cast is a once in a lifetime cavalcade of awesome and I have no doubt that there are a number of scenes that will be studied in film classes years from now. Definitely Quentin Tarantino's most mature, coherent film and arguably his best. QT deserved the Best Original Screenplay Oscar this year and it is a travesty that Melanie Laurent wasn't even nominated for her performance.

  • In Bruges

    In Bruges 2008

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Oct, 2012

    Not at all what I was expecting - in a good way. Funny, interesting and surprisingly somber at times; I can see myself revisiting this film quite a bit in the future.
