    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

    ★★★★½

    "Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most.... [voice breaks] human."
    -Captain James T. Kirk

    Not just the best Star Trek film, but a legitimately great film to boot. Wrath of Khan is an excellent meditation on what it means to be human. Do the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few? Or the one?

    Fantastic Mr. Fox

    ★★★★

    I'm still amazed at how well Wes Anderson's directorial style translates to stop-motion; I can't think of any other filmmaker could transition so perfectly to the medium.
    This is a really cussing good movie.

  • A Goofy Movie

    A Goofy Movie

    ★★★½

    Watched this with my friend for her birthday! This movie and its sequel were my childhood.

    Look Max! It's the Leaning Tower of Cheeza!

    L.A. Confidential

    ★★★★½

    Excellent film. Really smart screenplay and acting so impressive that one could almost forget they're watching a film filled to the brim with recognizable faces. One of the best neo-noirs ever made; a must-see for fans of the genre.

    Nothing but respect for MY Best Picture 1997.
