  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1978

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Mar, 2014

    Donald Sutherland rocks a badass mustache. The ending is good. Jeff Goldblum has a decent size role. These are good things.

  • The Spectacular Now 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 31 Mar, 2014 12

    The ending brings it all together.

  • TRON: Legacy 2010

    ★★★ Watched 31 Mar, 2014

    It looks good and the score is good but apart from that... nothing interesting going on here. It's too long, and Jeff Bridges after a cgi makeover? Horrible. Olivia Wilde makes up for it though.

  • The Verdict 1982

    ★★★★½ Watched 29 Mar, 2014 2

    There's a sort of special atmosphere in the Verdict. I don't quite know what, just something that made it different from most other things I've seen.

    Newman is fantastic and I loved his relationship with Charlotte Rampling. Not the usual kind of relationship.

  • 1941 1979

    ★★ Watched 28 Mar, 2014 10

    Man, that was hard to get through. Couple of good moments. The dance fight is worth mentioning. Otherwise it kind of just went by me. I regret watching the longer director's cut..

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 27 Mar, 2014 31

    This is probably a 5 star on a rewatch. So many delightful things going on. Ralph is phenomenal, so great to see one of my favorites doing fantastic work. This has got to be the most amazing cast ever as well. Mindblowing.

    It looks fantastic, it's hilarious, it's got Jeff Goldblum - what more do you need? Goldblums coat-check scene is the greatest thing ever.

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★½ Watched 27 Mar, 2014 8

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

  • Frances Ha 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Mar, 2014 10

    I was really expecting not to like this. Frances is the kind of character that I would usually find very annoying but she pulls it off so easily. There's no way you don't like her. It's a short and sweet film that goes all kind of wonderful places. That last shot is great too.

  • Shadow Dancer 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Mar, 2014 2

    Solid thriller though very cold and detached in a way. Great lead performance from Andrea Riseborough but Clive Owen really is quite wooden. I'm realizing that I don't like him very often.

  • Stoker 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Mar, 2014 2

    Weird.

  • Thor: The Dark World 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Mar, 2014

    Better than the first. A little darker which adds depth but still with enough fun for everyone to have a decent time. Hiddleston could have been used more and basically I could live with all the earth stuff being cut.

  • Lone Survivor 2013

    ★★★ Watched 16 Mar, 2014 2

    As an action movie it's good but nothing more than that. Really no depth here. Ben Foster should be in everything though.
