  • Premium Rush

    Premium Rush

    ★★★

    My biggest issue with the film is that it seemed way out of its era. Premium Rush felt like a movie I'd see on Nickelodeon in 2002 with a young, recently-formerly-teenage heartthrob in the prime role, i.e. Clockstoppers, or Agent Cody Banks or something. The acting wasn't very good either. There was a really weird, unnecessary cameo by Sleigh Bells in a single scene.

  • Looper

    ★★★★★

    STILL GOLD. Best movie of the year potential.

  • Ted

    ★★★

    Dumb. Occasionally funny moments. But dumb.

  • Flight

    Flight

    ★★★★½

    Whoa. Dramatic, emotional, terse, and sad. A terrific movie that reaches a stunning climax that makes me both root for Denzel and curse him as loud as I possibly can. Kelly Reilly and Denzel Washington both deserve Oscar nominations at the very least for their roles.

  • Argo

    Argo

    ★★★★½

    One of the best films of the year. Tense, thrilling, dramatic, and glorious. If you miss this movie, you're fucking up.

  • The Master of Disguise

    The Master of Disguise

    ★½

    I watched this movie on my tenth birthday. It was my favorite movie for a solid month or so. I tried rewatching it recently and unsurprisingly my glasses were not so rosy. Very bad movie.

  • Seven Psychopaths

    Seven Psychopaths

    ★★★★

    A fantastic, hilarious, gripping film. You can see part of the ending (or I guess the middle since it's revealed closer to the 1-hour mark) coming a mile away, but it's still terrific. Believe it or not, this movie might even be the biggest mindfuck of the year.

  • Mr. & Mrs. Smith

    Mr. & Mrs. Smith

    ★★½

    Better than I remember... but I remember it being really, REALLY bad so I guess that doesn't mean much. Not a bad action movie, but not a good movie overall either.

  • 12 Angry Men

    12 Angry Men

    ★★★★★

    Absolutely one of the best classics. It's strange to describe a film taking place almost entirely in one room as thrilling, but 12 Angry Men was. As was it gripping and terrifically acted. I'm rarely so engrossed in classic, all-dialogue, black and white films, but 12 Angry Men is an exception, and an exceptional one.

  • Intolerable Cruelty

    Intolerable Cruelty

    ★★★

    The pacing is very very off in this film, but it's still a pretty good movie.

  • First Daughter

    First Daughter

    I really need to stop watching movies at 3 in the morning just because they're on TV. They are rarely good.

  • Brink!

    Brink!

    ★★

    Soul skaters rule.
