  • American Hustle 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Mar, 2014

    This is a flashy con movie that is light on substance, and it probably shouldn't have received ten Oscar nominations. But it's also fun as hell, and the cast seemed like they were having the time of their lives. Not one of the best films of 2013, but still highly enjoyable.

  • The Counselor 2013

    ★★½ Watched 28 Mar, 2014

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

  • Bullhead 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Jan, 2013

    Was not expecting this to be so depressing. A fascinating character study of someone who suffered an incredibly traumatic experience as a boy, and now struggles to maintain a normal life. Bullhead has an amazing performance from Matthias Schoenaerts in the lead role, someone I was unfamiliar with beforehand. This one got a well-deserved Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language Film last year.

  • Hot Rod 2007

    ★★★½ Watched 11 Jul, 2013

    Watched this since it's part of the AV Club's New Cult Canon and liked it a hell of a lot more than I expected. The random, off-the-wall humor kind of reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite at times. Not all of the jokes work, but when they do, they're freakin' hilarious. Case in point: the Richardson flyer scene, which kills me every time I watch it.
