  • The Last Samurai

    The Last Samurai 2003

    ★★★★ Watched 30 Jun, 2015

    Probably the best version Dances with Wolves I've seen. Gotta great sense of scale and very satisfying action. They even have the Glory tear here! 3 times!!!

    Brigadoon 1954

    ★★★ Watched 25 Jun, 2015

    A musical that in general motif comes across as a lesser and weirder Sound of Music, with some notable numbers here and there but no real showstoppers, save maybe for Almost Like Being in Love.

It feels like it should be an epic musical but it's just not there.

    Men in Black stands out as a great franchise starting film that does it all with such simplicity. The world-building here is just fantastically done as you're never questioning the film's lineup of aliens or the methods that go about tracking them. This is all thanks to the 1990's answer to the 1980's Tom Hanks, Will Smith, who gives you plenty of charisma as you learn about the world of Men in Black as he does.
