  • Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

    Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

    ★★★★

    Rarely do I wish an already long film was significantly longer. Luc Besson's magnum opus. Disney fucking WISHES their Star Wars movies could be this good. Don't let this flop, make it a franchise PLEASE.

  • Boyhood

    Boyhood

    ★★★★★

    1. This is a film that EVERYONE born in early/mid 90's NEEDS to see.

    2. This is a film that defines a generation.

    3. This movie is like a journey back through time.

    4. Boyhood(and Under the Skin for that matter), proves that there is a lot of originality left in filmmaking.

    5. I don't think any other film besides Inherent Vice will top this for movie of the year.

    6. I could have continued watching this for another six hours without getting bored.

    7. Never has any film I've seen felt more real.

    8. This is Richard Linkater's magnum opus.

  • Lars and the Real Girl

    Lars and the Real Girl

    ★★★★

    Good prequel to Drive. Shows Driver becoming a real human being.
