    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


    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 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.
