  • Days of Thunder 1990

    ★★★★ Rewatched 03 Sep, 2013

    One of the greatest freeze-frame endings of all time.

  • Oblivion 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Sep, 2013

    Tom Cruise never fails. It looks great and it flies by while never glossing over too much.

  • The Taking of Pelham 123 2009

    ★★★½ Rewatched 02 Sep, 2013 4

    Denzel carries everything on his shoulders. A lot of things happen that don't make sense but he holds it all together. A great performance as usual.

  • Open Range 2003

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 31 Aug, 2013 2

    Not as good as I remember it being but a solid, classic western. Several shoot-outs in here and they are all fantastic.

  • 10 Things I Hate About You 1999

    ★★★½ Rewatched 30 Aug, 2013

    A fun movie with good performances by Heath and JGL.

  • Déjà Vu 2006

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 29 Aug, 2013 5

    I had a feeling I would love it after a rewatch and I'm pleased to see that I was right. Denzel absolutely kills it, crushes it and brings all the thunder that you need. And then some. Some of the early scenes with Doug watching Claire - there is so much emotion just the way Denzel looks at her.

    The ending is fantastic as well. Man, I wish Denzel and Tony would've made movies forever. One of the greatest team-ups of all time.

  • Hannah and Her Sisters 1986

    ★★★★★ Watched 28 Aug, 2013

    Definitely one of Woody Allen's most heartfelt and human movies. Every character is fully developed and all their troubles are laid bare. Instead of being laugh-out-loud funny (which it still is a couple scenes thanks to Woody himself), every other scene has an element that can't help but hit home. This is real and Woody makes you feel it.

  • September 1987

    ★★★ Watched 27 Aug, 2013 6

    The type of movie this is isn't exactly my favorite but I can still appreciate the craft and see that it is well made. There are many tender and affecting scenes one on one between the characters.

  • Radio Days 1987

    ★★★½ Watched 27 Aug, 2013

    Cozy is the word.

  • The Purple Rose of Cairo 1985

    ★★★★★ Watched 26 Aug, 2013

    Mia Farrow is just wonderful. Amazing, amazing. Jeff Daniels is having so much fun with the fantastic dialogue. A wonderful fantasy topped off with a great ending.

  • Broadway Danny Rose 1984

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 Aug, 2013

    That ending.

  • Zelig 1983

    ★★★½ Watched 24 Aug, 2013

    The cinematography is great and apparently took a long, long time to get right and the idea by itself is interesting and pretty brilliant. It does fall short at times though and it seems as if it's just moving from moment to moment. It's as if there isn't enough classic Woody which always makes a movie better for me, so that's a shame but it's still well made and enjoyable. At 75 minutes there's no excuse for not watching it.
