  • Still Alice 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 28 Nov, 2014

    Well this wrecked me nice and good. For my money, this is about as affecting as you're gonna get with this subject without succumbing to some major melodrama. The film flirts with emotionally overplaying its hand at times but it all rings true due to the wonderfully calibrated domestic scenes and the precise POV of memories slipping through the cracks. So much engrossing humility and sensitivity on display. Moore and Stewart absolutely killing it.

  • 3 Days to Kill 2014

    ½ Watched 21 Feb, 2014

    Steinfeld: "I don't even know how to ride a bike."

    Costner: "What kind of a kid doesn't know how to ride a bike?"

    Steinfeld: "The kind that doesn't have a father to teach her."

    The worst.

  • Whiplash 2014

    Watched 18 Nov, 2014

    Moves like a wily freight train that refuses to slow down. Highly enjoyable if not particularly memorable. Also, Paul Reiser dumping raisinets into his bucket of popcorn is by far the most horrific thing in the movie.
