    The last couple of times I watched this, my eyes were a bit too jaded.

    I was wrong. This movie is wonderful.

    ★★★½

    Much like Juno, Diablo Cody's writing gets a little *too* precocious every now and then. In fact, at times it seems really dated...and this movie was less than a decade ago!

    Still, Seyfried and Fox are both pretty great, and seeing JK Simmons as a curly-haired nerd is pretty life-changing.

    "Lasagna with teeth?"

    Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World

    ★★★★★

    In my preferred universe, this movie made a billion dollars and has a dozen sequels and there's a Lil' Master prequel cartoon and kids would yearn to grow up to be naval commanders. Instead it didn't even make $100 mil in the US and they haven't made another one. Bah.

    Under the Skin

    ★★★

    Some of the most remarkable imagery I've ever seen, and I was antsy about an hour in. Fascinating and frustrating in equal measure. Jonathan Glazer is a genius, and I'll probably never see any of his films twice.
