  • The Great Escape 1963

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Apr, 2014

    ♫ James Garner, and Steve McQuee-een/ come up with separate breakout sche-eemes/ But then they team up, and run away-ay/ that's why it's called The Great Escape ♫

  • It's Such a Beautiful Day 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Mar, 2014

    A strange, painful, beautiful, lovely work of art. At once a harrowing microcosm and a soaring macrocosm . Normally, I roll my eyes at the term "masterpiece," but holy shit, what else would you call this.

  • Bubba Ho-tep 2002

    ★★★★ Watched 14 Mar, 2014

    There's a moment where elderly Elvis Presley and elderly black John F. Kennedy are going over their game plan to defeat an ancient Egyptian evil with the meager resources they're able to scrounge up in their old folks' home. While this all sounds farcical and ridiculous, the scene genuinely feels tense: the battle at hand with the "graffiti writin', soul suckin', son of a bitch in an oversized cowboy hat and boots" earns the pause of both heroes. They go on anyway, and the ensuing battle/ending is an awesome, fittingly poignant end to a comedic horror with heart.
