    ★★★★

    Unique, sweet, moving, interesting. Plummer is fantastic. Mélanie Laurent is wonderful as always. And McGregor is just fine. Beginners is a bizarre semi-true story and very enjoyable to watch.

    The American

    ★★★½

    The American is, at heart, a character portrait of a craftsman. It just so happens his craft is making weapons for assassins. On his last job in a remote foreign town, Clooney's character spends his time isolating himself as much as possible while building a gun from spare parts. It's a simple story, but satisfying, and the tension built from scene to scene increases as Clooney tries to figure out his potential post-craftsman life while trying to avoid falling in love or being killed.

    ★★★★★

    Before The Matrix, action movies were completely different. I still remember what it felt like, opening night in 1999, to see bullet-time in the opening moments of this film. The Matrix created an entirely new language for filming fight sequences, chases, and gun battles. It remains, to this day, one of my favorite sci-fi films.

    Absolutely loved this film. Abrams channeling the best of classic Spielberg and completely succeeding. This film is full of imagination and heart.
