    Not enough Udo Kier.

  • Tau



    I dunno — I guess I’m just a sucker for these kind of stories? I really enjoyed it, though! Yeah, the framing device is tired old mad scientist schtick, but how Julia and Tau play off of each other is the fun part.

    The Matrix


    After newly calibrating my projector, I notice the subtlety of the green cast of the imagery from inside the matrix. It's mostly in the flesh tones, and doesn't usually affect the black leather or dark, rainy streets, which stay pretty neutral, or even lean a tiny bit blue. An impressive and subtle color grade.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens


    Unabashed love.

    The second time seeing the film, unburdened by expectations, fears, and a burning anger at having a significant moment spoiled; undistracted by noticing callbacks for being callbacks and just now seeing them in the context of the new story… this is a fine, fine Star Wars film.

    Also, way better in 2D. Seattle Cinerama's laser projection is the best way to watch this film.
