  • How to Train Your Dragon 2 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Nov, 2014

    Not gonna lie, loved it. I am not the target audience but the heavy handed message of "positivity trumps negativity" is great by me. Oh, and Toothless really is an adorable badass.

  • Saturday Night 2010

    ★★★ Watched 04 Nov, 2014

    Satisfies the desire to see the backstage workings of a week at SNL. I understand the complaints about Franco's directing style but they are secondary to the actual content. I would pay to see more of this sort of thing - particularly table reads and rehearsal sketches.

  • 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.
