  • Her 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 16 Jan, 2014 23

    Is this the same guy who was in the Master? Get the fuck out of here.

  • American Graffiti 1973

    ★★★½ Watched 14 Jan, 2014 1

    Ron Howard is a jerk.

  • Don't Drink the Water 1994

    ★★ Watched 13 Jan, 2014 5

    "Years of insanity have made this guy crazy."

    Woody is doing his best but overall it is boring and at 90 minutes it still drags.

  • The Celebration 1998

    ★★★★★ Watched 13 Jan, 2014

    Second Vinterberg and I'm even more devastated this time. That cat knows how to mess with my emotions.

  • The Place Beyond the Pines 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Jan, 2014 2

    First act is brilliant, I really liked second act but the third one lets it all down. Kind of a shame really. The music merits a mention as well.

  • Another Woman 1988

    ★★★½ Watched 12 Jan, 2014

    Woody doesn't need 2 hours to tell a story. Step in for an hour twenty and you get a great performance from Gena Rowlands and you get to see Gene Hackman, the legend, in a Woody film. Always fantastic, that man.

  • The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Jan, 2014 2

    Enjoyed this one way more than the first. We get right into things and it's full of action throughout. Good action at that. Lots of fun and inventive set pieces and formidable foes. Smaug gave me what everyone apparently got with Gollum in part 1. I thought Gollum was boring but Smaug was fantastic. Now I'm actually just a little bit excited about part 3.

  • Commando 1985

    ★★★½ Watched 11 Jan, 2014 6

    Solid Arnold flick with the last 10 minutes being the most badass. What a fight. That's how you do it.

  • Enter the Dragon 1973

    ★★★ Watched 11 Jan, 2014 6

    Good action scenes but most of the stuff around those scenes is uninteresting.

  • All Is Lost 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Jan, 2014 6

    I have mostly good things to say about All is Lost. It looks great, Redford gives a good performance and it gets right into the shit. There were a couple of scenes where the score barged in and ruined it but overall I liked the score. I loved the ending as well.

  • The Wolf of Wall Street 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Jan, 2014 14

    I've been up and down with this since I came out of the theatre. At first I was a little disappointed but I don't think that's quite it. It was kind of different than I had expected. It was very similar to Goodfellas, only I feel Goodfellas pulls you in a little more emotionally. At first I felt that this was a problem, that I didn't care enough about anyone in Wolf, but it encompasses so much. And DiCaprio. So…

  • Dallas Buyers Club 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Jan, 2014 13

    I'm kind of torn on DBC. On one hand it's a pretty standard biopic that jumps in time way too much. On the other hand there's McConaughey absolutely killing it and skinning it and hanging it out to dry. Raw power, my man, all right all right all right.

    I do not get the love for Leto though. Just because he dresses up a little and puts a bit of shade on his eye does not mean he's best of…
