  • Fried Green Tomatoes 1991

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Jul, 2014

    I'm not exactly the target demographic but it's a pleasant enough bit of Southern storytelling. Even if it is a bit long in the tooth.

  • Dracula 1992

    ★★★½ Watched 28 Jul, 2014

    Putting another notch in the "how had I not seen this?" list. Loved the campiness and overall visual style. Melodramatic in the right ways. A bit long but hardly a complaint. I could watch the prologue over and over.

  • 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.

  • Obvious Child 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Jul, 2014 1

    Met all my expectations and deserves the accolades it is receiving through and through. My only regret is that I saw too many of the jokes in the trailer, wish I'd stayed more ignorant.
