  • Only Lovers Left Alive 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Sep, 2014 2

    The look this film has is incredible. Drink it up like a milkshake, your straw, my straw.. I've got to get to all the Jarmusch flicks I haven't watched yet. That cat knows how to put together a slice of cool.

  • The Big Lebowski 1998

    Big Lebowski drink-along with white russians in the theatre? Life's pretty good.

  • Short Term 12 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Sep, 2014

    Just perfect chemistry between everyone in this film. It's all about the small moments. Brie Larson is fantastic and I look forward to seeing her in more great roles.

  • Blue Jasmine 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Sep, 2014

    Colin basically put down my thoughts on this. I loved hanging out with all these characters.

  • Enemy 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 19 Sep, 2014 15

    What an atmosphere. What an ending.

  • Starred Up 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 17 Sep, 2014 1

    This was one of those films that steadily built up a line of good reviews while here was me, thinking it looked pretty solid. Sure, I'd check it out sometime.

    Put to shame. What a gut-punch. I'd put it right up there with A Prophet. It's not as "epic" but it's got the emotional side set in stone. Sort of a must for every father/son. Unpleasant but it brings the truth and that's all you can ask for.

  • Alexander 2004

    ★★★ Watched 15 Sep, 2014

    I watched the revised final cut with an added 40 minutes, so I can't compare to the theatrical version that has been ripped apart. But I enjoyed a couple of things about this one. The acting is all over the place. Farrell does what he can and certainly goes for it but this means that he misses completely sometimes. Fair play to him though.

    Apart from Farrell I felt like all the other characters - despite having plenty of screentime…

  • It's Impossible to Learn to Plow by Reading Books 1988

    ★★½ Watched 14 Sep, 2014

    The rating is kind of unfair since it's not a bad film by any means. I just didn't enjoy it very much. A couple of interesting shots but mostly it just didn't do much for me.

  • Sabotage 2014

    Watched 14 Sep, 2014 3

    Two things.

    The editing in this thing is atrocious. I hated the "technique" they used to show what had happened someplace while people were walking around there. Horrible editing between past and present.

    I'm really worried about Fury now. I hope Ayer doesn't fuck over my man Pitt. He deserves better than a guy who "directed" this piece of garbage.

  • The Rover 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 14 Sep, 2014 6

    Pattinson and Pearce, who would have known they would be so great together.

    The bullets rip violently like any self-respecting bullet should and the soundtrack is way out there at times which is fitting considering the wasteland P & P are roaming about in. Basically, what I'm saying is, I dig David Michôd's films and I'll be first in line for his next picture.

  • The Breakfast Club 1985

    ★★★★½ Watched 13 Sep, 2014

    This was so much better than I had expected. It was really very different than what I had imagined and I dug it! Great soundtrack, great actors, great ending.

    I like you Clarence. Always have, always will.
