  • Edge of Tomorrow 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Sep, 2014

    I have no great insight this beyond the praise it has already received. I am curious why Emily Blunt's character didn't leverage more of her status to further the plot but I guess beauracracy is way less fun than repetitive death lessons.

    Enjoyed. Solid sci fi.

  • The Future 2011

    ★★★ Watched 16 Sep, 2014

    Been wanting to see this for awhile but was hesitant because I assumed it would be overwhelmingly twee. I mean, a cat narrator!?

    Turns out, it's a bit twee as it's about aimless 30 something's selfishly "finding" themselves but the quirkier elements are surprisingly engaging. The cat is great.

    Kind of drips with melancholy and best suited for people in relationships that can't seem to get it together.

  • Frank 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 14 Sep, 2014

    Interesting combo of dark comedy and mental illness exploitation exploration. Someone mentioned Wesley Willis in a review of this and that feels quite apt.

    The difference a paper mâché mask makes...

  • 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.
