  • Out in the Dark 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Feb, 2014

    This film leaves me in a fucking despair.

  • Geography Club 2013

    ★★½ Watched 13 Feb, 2014

    Doesn't do the book any justice.

  • Now You See Me 2013

    ★★★ Watched 10 Dec, 2013

    It's a hell of a twist, but twist that makes you say, "Uhh...yeah...that's too much and I don't think so..."

  • Elysium 2013

    ★★★ Watched 12 Aug, 2013

    Elysium 2: Where Elysium Is Now Corrupted and Polluted After Earth People Moved In and Now They Are Looking For Another Planet

    Matt Damon was a badass and Jodie Foster was pretty bad and bland.

  • Pacific Rim 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Jul, 2013

    Pros:
    - Awesome visual. 3D looks really good especially looking at the monster and the giant robots fighting underwater.
    - There's a kickass female character among those beefs in the movie.
    - Charlie Hunnam is very eye-pleasing.
    - There is a bit of emotional in the story that involves family.
    - Elba makes most of his character.


    Cons:
    - The narration sounds like mumbling.
    - That means the audio is only focusing on making the biggest noise for the explosion.…

    So energetic yet still a downer.

  • Star Trek Into Darkness 2013

    ★★★★½ Added

    It feels good to watch these characters on the big screen again. Aside from the fucking lens flares, the final moment between Kirk and Spock is very touching. Definitely more action-oriented than the first one, but still very satisfying.

  • Stoker 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 01 Mar, 2013

    Beautifully framed with score by Clint Mansell and piano bits from Phillip Glass. Nicole was A+ esp for that short speech. Goode was very effective and Mia was creepy.

  • Night Across the Street 2012

    ★★★ Watched 13 Feb, 2013

    Partly funny (in a dark way), partly strange (in a surreal way).

  • Kill Your Darlings 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 31 Jan, 2013

    Was excited to see this after reading all those Twit-reviews from Sundance, especially about Dane DeHaan. While DeHaan himself was very good, the film was not so much. It’s a mix between Ginsberg’s complicated relationship with Lucien Carr and a murder story. The screenplay had some very cheesy scenes (visiting the mother and asking for advice) and lines. The acting was great and I didn’t recognize it was Ben Foster all along. But it had some pretty great scenes like…

  • Les Misérables 2012

    ★★½ Watched 08 Jan, 2013

    I must make a note that the day I went to see this in NYC, I was having a very bad day. I went to see this at midnight, was very tired, before getting on bus getting back home. The theater was very crowded and I gotta admit the only reason I dragged my ass to see this at midnight was to see Anne Hathaway's Oscar buzzed performance. Mind you that I've listened to her rendition of "I Dreamed a…
