    The Lobster 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 14 May, 2016

    Equal parts sad, lonely and weird with a dash of disturbing thrown in. 

    Others can wax on more eloquently about it but I loved the fact that everyone was unhappy regardless of their status. Not exactly an optimistic view on the world but a decent reminder that you're going to have hardships no matter where you end up; together or alone.

    The @davidehrlich review calls this V/H/S but with a central theme of guilt, that's a very succinctly accurate roundup. I'm sure the devoted horror aficionados will have plenty of criticisms for this anthology of random tales but I was into it. Nice blend of the supernatural, the occult, gore and just plain weird.


    But the DJ is truly awful. Don't believe anyone that tells you otherwise ;)

    ★★★★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.

    The Martian 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Nov, 2015

    Remember when movies used to try to create entire scenes with CG and it looked awful? Like, so bad you wondered how anyone could look at it and come to a positive consensus that their money had been well spent? Insane. We are no longer in that time for sure.

    Beautiful looking movie. Other worldly, LITERALLY. I even enjoyed the 3D aspect of it - not something I really ever budge on.

    The book is better but that's no surprise.…
