  • The Skeleton Twins 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Oct, 2014

    Hader deserves the accolades he's been receiving for this. All and all, the plot is not the steam powering this ship, it's the interaction between the main three characters. Owen Wilson is perfect and a surprisingly funny foil to the dark duo of Wiig and Hader.

    It delivered what I expected, a nice blend of macabre, dry humor with some eternally broken characters. My fave!

  • Lunopolis 2009

    ★★★ Watched 17 Oct, 2014

    The things you find on Netflix! If your friends made this, you'd be super proud of them. Otherwise, it's a sci-fi piece borrowing blatantly and heavily from Scientology and Coast-to-Coast with a LOT of exposition to explain their concepts.

  • The Immigrant 2013

    ★★½ Watched 02 Aug, 2014

    Cinematography was honestly gorgeous. Can't sing it's praises enough. Acting was believable and solid. However, Story was boring, predictable and unengaging (for me, remember this is subjective).

    Would not recommend but would suggest looking up screenshots or snippets just to enjoy the cinematography.

  • Manhattan 1979

    Watched 14 Jul, 2014

    Reviewing classics that you managed to never see until recently rarely yields any worthwhile insight for anyone involved. I will say, the hype regarding the cinematography did not do it justice. Stunning looking start to finish.
