    Only God Forgives

    Honestly, one star may be too generous. Only God Forgives prioritizes style over story or substance, and moves beyond bizarre into the farcical.

    Brooklyn

    ★★★★

    Saoirse Ronan is utterly captivating in this impeccably crafted, romantically-fashioned gem. A familiar yet freshly told tale of self-definition packed with heart and breathtaking scenery.

  • Assault on Precinct 13

    Assault on Precinct 13

    ★★★★½

    Finally watched Assault on Precinct 13 thanks to the great film podcast The Next Picture Show. It's taken me too long to see one of Carpenter's earliest and strongest films. A well-paced, well-made thriller that will still entertain and enthrall. Plus - that music! It's likely my favorite of all his synthesized scores!

  • Zootopia

    Zootopia

    ★★★★½

    Zootopia delivers an invaluable message with impressive wit and sincerity. Surely the best animated film of the year - this feisty and hilarious buddy-cop movie, reminds us how smart "kid movies" can and should be.
