    Interstellar 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Apr, 2015

    Dunno what can be said that hasn't been already. Good film. Not great but good. Suffered from over schmaltzyness imo but still mostly enjoyed.

  • Ex Machina

    Ex Machina 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Apr, 2015

    I saw this alone so there was no moment to converse openly about the implications of the Singularity and what it means to be conscious and "alive" - worthwhile topics evoked by this.

    Rather amazing CG and great performances all around. I read a lot of reviews having issue with the machine being female and, thus, automatically a fetish object... Not so sure about that myself. It may say more about the reviewer than the film implies. Tho I guess that's another topic best wrestled when viewed with others.

    Citizenfour 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 08 Dec, 2014

    If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.

    Must see for anyone. Period.

  • Inherent Vice

    Inherent Vice 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 09 Jan, 2015

    Anyone who says the plot is confusing is 1) not paying attention and 2) missing the point.

    Not my favorite PTA but an impressive adaptation. Really
    feels like literary characters. A bit over the top but plenty of back story you are intentionally barred from.
