    The Gift 2000

    ★★★ Watched 21 Oct, 2016

    Part of Hooptober 3.0: Hoop Dreams

    Cate Blanchett & Hilary Swank acting together in one scene is the most magical thing I've seen on film this year. I'll take Swank & Blanchett over De Niro & Pacino any day. Let's please put Hilary Swank in that Ocean's reboot, or just put Hilary Swank in anything please.

    On the Cate-obsession part of the spectrum, I know it's silly to expect Cate to not do great accent work, but her southern dialect is still impressive.…

  • Men in Black

    Men in Black 1997

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Feb, 2014 1

    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.
