  • Chef 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Sep, 2014 5

    Jesus-FUCKING-christ did I make a mistake before I started this film. I didn't eat anything first, and it made me some goddamn hungry I feel like I'm about die. All the food looked fucking ridiculously good. I hope I can make it through this review without my stomach eating itself. The sound my stomach is making right now would make you think dinosaurs have returned to earth.

    Chef is the story of Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau). He's a well…

  • JohnnyExpress 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Sep, 2014 2

    Kyungmin Woo's animated short JohnnyExpress, is the story of a lazy intergalactic delivery man who's latest delivery unbeknownst to him isn't going so well. The animation looks very nice and Woo's use of increasingly funny and well timed visual gags make this a really fun and entertaining short film.

    Ron's recommendation: See it. In fact you can see it HERE if you'd like.

  • WWE Extreme Rules 2014 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 04 May, 2014 2

    The Shield vs Evolution stole the show, John Cena vs Bray Wyatt had some cool moments, and Daniel Bryan vs Kane was a solid WWE title match albeit with some pretty silly spots.

    Outside of the 3 matches I mentioned it was just an average show, but those 3 made it worth it especially The Shield vs Evolution which was awesome. Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns are the future of the WWE.

  • Proxy 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Aug, 2014 2

    "Not for everyone". Many of us have used that phrase in our reviews here on Letterboxd. Whether it's a film that we feel just won't be everyone's cup of tea or one that is just too disturbing for generally audiences or the faint of heart it's sometimes necessary when describing a film. Well if we're talking about the too disturbing use for it then Zack Parker's Proxy could be the poster to go with the definition.

    On the surface Proxy

  • Calvary 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Jul, 2014

    The opening scene of John Michael Mcdonagh's Calvary is very disturbing and the most affecting I've witnessed in a long time. As the man who we don't see is sitting in the confessional speaking to the Priest, (Brendan Gleeson) his words cut so deep that one could never un-hear them. They're the words of a man broken by his past circumstances and beyond any kind of help. That opening scene sets in motion a battle between Father James Lavelle (Gleeson),…

  • WWE WrestleMania XXX 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 06 Apr, 2014 14

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • Doc of the Dead 2014

    ★★½ Watched 28 Aug, 2014

    Doc of the Dead which is obviously a documentary about zombies is somewhat interesting, but it's too unfocused to be what I'd call a good documentary. Director Alexandre O. Philippe tries to cover too much in too short a time. The film goes into everything from the origins of the zombie, zombie films, zombie books, and "zombie culture". It jumps around from the African and voodoo origins to zombie walks and doomsday prep. The fast vs slow zombie debate is…

  • Spirit in the Woods 2014

    ½ Watched 31 May, 2014 2

    It looks like I'm the first person to log Spirit in the Woods on Letterboxd. Lucky me!

    I honestly don't know if it's possible to ripoff the The Blair Witch Project anymore than this film does.

    I'm sure he'll never see this, but I wanna say a few things to writer/director Anthony Daniel.

    1. If you're going to make a found footage film and claim the footage is "real" you might wanna get actors who can act like real people.…

  • Tom Segura: Completely Normal 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 23 May, 2014

    I never heard of Tom Segura before today, but as it turns out he's pretty fucking funny.

  • Veronica Mars 2014

    ★★½ Watched 24 Aug, 2014

    I've never seen the Veronica Mars tv show nor do I plan to. It's a show that never interested me that aired on a network I rarely if ever watched. Apparently it was well liked by critics and had a kind of cult following, but it didn't get the kind of ratings the network wanted so it was cancelled after 3 seasons. I honestly had forgotten all about the show until the movie surfaced. Creator Rob Thomas along with the…

  • Recurring 2014

    ★★★ Watched 28 May, 2014 2

    Recurring is another short film by a letterboxd user. This time it's Pietro Agnoletto, and his first short while only 2 minutes long is pretty impressive. I can only explain it as eerie visuals and sounds representing a fading in and out of conscienous but it's very cool to look at.

    Nice job Pietro!
