    As I assume people saw with my previous review of this film, this is my favorite film of all time. For me everything about this film is perfection, from the music to the puppetry to the comedy and just every little aspect of it. Most of all, to me this feels like the place where we get the purest performance of Kermit the Frog, and because of that, the closest we can get to Jim Henson as the star he…

    ★★½

    Now I took every chance possible to make this experience the best possible one for me. I saw this in theaters, on one out of ten 70mm prints around the world. I also saw this in Columbus, where all of this takes place, for some reason. But even with all of this, I guess my final take would be I loved everything about this film except for the actual story.

    Before I get into that, one thing I want to…

    ★★★½

    I'm not exactly sure what to make of this film on first pass. I know that Weir likes to play with the limits of reality(The Truman Show), but here we have a very specific cultural form, the Aboriginal Dreamtime. I appreciate that Weir took signficant advice from both David Gulpilil and Nandjiwarra Amagula(a tribal elder). This allows for this film to be what Gulipilil calls the most accurate filmic depiction of Dreamtime. I also really appreciate the way that this…

    I can't believe it took me this long to see this film. Bombing during its theatrical run, this film quickly became a cult classic, and it's not hard to see why. The sophomore film from writer Diablo Cody(after her Oscar win for Juno), directed by Karyn Kusama, and starring Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried with a pretty strong supporting cast(including a young Chris Pratt), this is a film that is both fun and (un)surprisingly intelligent. I agree with Kusama that…

    This was a fantastic film. I would call this a mix between E.T. and Chronicle. The plot is very similar to that of E.T., kids find alien, alien needs help, kids help alien, government tries to find alien, alien escapes with kids help and goes home. What made this different was the cinematography, which was similar to Chronicle. One kid, Tuck, obsessively videotapes everything, and this leads to several different cameras, being handled by the kids, and creates a very…
