    Dope 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Jun, 2016

    Don't watch the trailer. The trailer is awful. The movie is funny, a bit clever and just the right amount of self-aware. I'm way outside the age demographic for this and still enjoyed it.

    Welcome to Leith 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Jun, 2016

    Great to see a super small town in North Dakota band together against white supremacy. Country folk ain't as hateful and stupid as the world (or Trump supporters) might have you believe. 

    Sometimes you have to allow others to have their weird opinions and lifestyles and sometimes there is a clear Right and Wrong. Leith did the Right Thing.

    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.

    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.…
