    X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2009

    ★★★ Watched 28 May, 2016

    Hugh Jackman and Liev Shreiber are so good, it makes it fun and watchable, but this was pretty cheesy, and Wolverine’s cgi claws look like shit. There’s a part where he’s looking at the new metal claws and it looks like such garbage and it’s like, just grab some fucking knives, his hands aren’t even in the shot! Also, he extends his claws 8,000 times in this movie, and people leap at each other as an attack move about 5,000…

    ★★★★½ Watched 27 May, 2016

    Into this. Great cast. Liked the time travel. Quicksilver’s scene was super great. And I’m just glad to finally have a definitive answer on what actually happened with JFK’s assassination.

    Face/Off 1997

    I saw this as a cynical, shitty teenager, and hated it. Even before revisiting it, I was deeply ashamed of this fact because I knew in my heart I was wrong. I am proud of how much I have matured in the last 17 years as a viewer of cinema, and that I can now recognize Face/Off as one of the greatest films of all time.

    The thing Brooke Adams does with her eyes in this movie might be my favorite thing anyone has done in any movie.
