    ★★★★½ Rewatched 25 Jan, 2015

    Sometimes when I watch Memento I pretend it’s another Cary Grant / Alfred Hitchcock movie. And then I like it even more.

  • Under the Skin 2013

    ★★★ Watched 21 Jan, 2015

    Now I know what would have happened if Lebowski’s Treehorn dream sequence just kept going.

  • The Guest 2014

    This movie belongs in a VHS videoplex. Not a bad thing.

  • Blue Ruin 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Jan, 2015
