    Looney Tunes: Back in Action


    Looney Tunes: Back in Action isn't great. It certainly has some truly hysterical moments, especially the line about staring at the elephant's behind, but a lot of the film falls flat. I love when Joe Dante treats humans like Looney Tunes characters (see all of his movies), I would love to see Joe Dante direct a completely animated Looney Tunes film, but the mixture of the two doesn't completely work. Maybe it is the technology at the time, maybe it…

  • Hopscotch



    Hopscotch is light and fluffy, but thanks to the humor and wonderful performances it doesn't feel wasted or slight. Instead the film has an interesting energy, feeling like a con mixed with Bond all wrapped up in a farce. Not laugh out loud funny, not deep, just straight up enjoyable.

    The Grand Budapest Hotel


    Charming and fun who-dunnit. The usual attention to detail, offbeat humor, and quirky Anderson style are all there. Mixed with interesting animation, period jumping, and aspect ratio tinkering, this is a great watch.

  • Skyfall



    Works as a spy film, action film, revenge film, and siege film. Does a good job at taking relatively small stakes (for a Bond film), and blowing them up on a grander scale. So easily digestible, this film is fun to watch, has the just the right amount of humor, and is the best looking Bond film ever.
