  • The Art of the Steal 2013

    ★★★ Watched 10 Dec, 2014

    It's a little too self-consciously stylish -- especially early on -- but it's better to have too much style rather than too little. The heists are fun and the cast is great, so I got what I wanted from it, though I would have loved a stronger ending with a bit more character stuff. Not a big deal.

  • World War Z 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 03 Dec, 2014

    A horrible (though I suppose unavoidable) ending, but it's a pretty great movie that painted itself into that hole. Fantastic visuals (for the most part) and a smarter take on the zombie apocalypse than I'm used to. I wanted more character stuff and an actual ending, but it was still a good time.

  • Mission: Impossible II 2000

    ★★ Watched 31 Dec, 2011

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • Sneakers 1992

    ★★★ Watched 03 Nov, 2013

    A little dated and uneven, but fun. There's not quite enough screenplay to keep everyone in the (incredible!) cast busy, and it feels more like a long TV episode than a movie, but I would definitely watch that show.
