    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.

    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.

    Solid danish thriller. I'm not much into the nordic crime movies but for what it is, it's a good enough movie.

    Sin City: A Dame to Kill For 2014

    ★★ Watched 02 Sep, 2014

    Marv was okay, but that's mostly because Mickey Rourke is such a badass. Other than that, everything was extremely messy and felt like a string of scenes that Rodriguez thought were cool, put together in any which way. It's almost like everything could be shuffled around and it wouldn't make a difference. Rodriguez last good film, when was that? Maybe he's lost it.

  • JFK

    JFK 1991

    ★★★★ Rewatched 24 Aug, 2014

    A solid and entertaining film with a huge cast of fun people. It doesn't really feel as long as it is and it's always interesting in some way.

    It's all over the place. Some horrible things take place and the movie just sweeps right past it like nothing ever happened.

    Jude Law is a real beast though. What a fun performance.

  • Snowpiercer

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Aug, 2014

    What an odd film. It's all over the place. I guess I should have expected that from Bong. It's cool to have all these ideas floating around but it kind of goes too many directions in the end.

    Herzog can shoot the jungle. Kinski knows how to move in it. If that ain't enough, take the shot of the steamship moving up the mountain. What a magnificent sight to behold.

    Herzog could very easily claim the title of most badass man in the world.

    Well, this was just right down the middle. I remember a couple of instances where I was thinking something was completely stupid, but I just don't care enough about the film to recall. I've already forgotten half of it.
