  • Macbeth

    Macbeth 2015

    ★★★ Watched 26 Jun, 2016 2

    I'm not a big Shakespeare fan, but Justin Kurzel's stylish adaptation of the classic Macbeth is visually pleasing and features an excellent performance by Michael Fassbender. This is easily one of the better adaptations I've seen.

    The Ron Says: See it.

  • The Assassin

    The Assassin 2015

    ★★½ Watched 25 Jun, 2016

    Hsaio-Hsien Hou's The Assassin is a visually stunning piece of work. The cinematography, set pieces, and wardrobe all look amazing. It's too bad it's severely lacking in plot and ultimately a good looking bore.

    The Ron Says: It's worth seeing once.

    "Gentlemen, you had my curiousity. But now, you have my attention."
    Calvin Candie

    Quentin Tarantino has had my attention since the very first time I saw Pulp Fiction. It was the first film I ever saw where one of the first words that came to mind was masterpiece! It was my first Tarantino, I've seen everything he's directed since and I've been impressed every damn time. In my opinion he simply doesn't make bad films.

    So with everything I said…

  • Looper

    Looper 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Sep, 2012 30

    Fucking brilliant!

    Looper is easily the best film I've seen this year! I loved everything about it! I was in awe from start to finish. The directing, performances, and plot are all top notch. Pierce Gagnon basically steals the show as Cid with the best child performance I've seen since Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense. I teared up at one point because I was so happy with what I was seeing. I can't recommend this film highly enough and I think most people will love it.
