    It's rare to see something which actually lives up to its hype. I just wish they spent more time on the actual chess. Some of the board setups and moves looked... odd. But it's still a fine drama overall, with good aesthetic and music choices too.

    Bringing Up Baby


    Has good moments, yet is too chaotic and cacophonous to really be enjoyable. Some people will like that, it's just not my personal preference. The plot also has holes and people frequently talk over each other--which is supposed to be for comedic effect, but my ears didn't appreciate it.

    This movie is basically a car whipping around corners at 90 mph with a passenger whose frenzied chatter never ceases.

    The best of the four. It's especially fantastic when you consider that it's based on a Disney ride. A ride, of all things. It's like someone saying Batman Begins was based on a roller coaster.

  • War



    Hollywood action film.

    That pretty much sums it up with no need for further elaboration. War is slightly above average, although I'm not sure if deserves a 3.5 for that.
