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

  • From Russia With Love 1963

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Jul, 2014

    From Russia With Love would be a fuckin' perfect James Bond movie if it didn't stop in the middle for 20 minutes to be incredibly racist and misogynistic for literally no reason whatsoever. Bond himself is an awful sexist dick, but at least in this film that's actually literally the reason the villains try to get him in the trap, the movie's totally self aware about it. But like, stopping the entire plot for 20 minutes for some bullshit?

    It's offensive, to screenwriters at the very least.

  • Terminator 2: Judgment Day 1991

    ★★ Rewatched 16 Jul, 2014 10

    Terminator 2 is a tragically incompetent movie in the areas where it counts the most, you liked it because you were all 12 when you saw it.

    That's right, I'm throwing FIRE today, Letterboxd.

  • Dr. No 1962

    ★★★ Watched 15 Jul, 2014

    Of all the James Bond films, Dr. No is certainly one of them.

  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 2013

    ★★★ Watched 14 Jul, 2014 1

    There are a couple of good jokes, and some moments that are at the very least affecting, but the overall arc of the film runs counter to everything that was great about the first one. It's to be expected, Cloudy 1 had emotional closure and didn't really leave much more room for character growth, but still it's disappointing the route they took it down.

  • Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow 2004

    ★★ Watched 14 Jul, 2014

    A disappointing film, with such potential in style and tone, plays out with a central relationship as boring as it is frustrating and a visual style that makes no use of the freedom its techniques afford.

  • The Avengers 2012

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 23 Apr, 2014

    Don't mind me, just filling in rewatches I didn't log at the time. I watched Avengers again with my dad -- SURPRISE, it is still great.

  • Begin Again 2013

    Watched 13 Jul, 2014

    Me and My Sister hated this movie so strongly that it brought us closer together as a family.

  • Saving Mr. Banks 2013

    ★★ Watched 13 Jul, 2014

    Good performances, good cast, good jokes all wrapped up in a transparent PR move for Disney and its history.
