  • War and Peace, Part III: The Year 1812

    War and Peace, Part III: The Year 1812

    ★★★★★

    Pierre at Borodino is over of the most ridiculous and perfect sequences in film.

  • War and Peace, Part I: Andrei Bolkonsky

    War and Peace, Part I: Andrei Bolkonsky

    ★★★★★

    I still lose it when the army first marches into Austria, singing away, unaware how boned they already are. That and the Daniel Cooper are my favorite scenes in this one.

  • Solaris

    Solaris

    ★★★★

    Everybody else has already said everything about this film. Everybody either loves it passionately or hates it just as passionately. Its worthy of both evaluations, I suppose. I for one find it bewitching from beginning to end (except maybe the sepia toned tour of downtown Tokyo toward the beginning, which really does just go on for too long but I know why it's there).

  • Annihilation

  • The Beaver Trilogy

    The Beaver Trilogy

    ★★★½

    The iterations are everything.

  • Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru

    Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru

    ★★

    A competent documentary about a monster. Nothing special.

  • Wind River

    Wind River

    ★★★★½

    Between my father and I, we have a combined 50- some years of Wyoming law enforcement experience under our belts, so we approached this with skepticism, but Wind River is actually very true you that experience. Jeremy Renner, whom I tend to think of as Hawkeye, suddenly felt like one of my neighbors, meaning he really disappeared into the part. The Park City locations looked enough like the real ones to also effectively disappear for us -- so we were able to just enjoy the movie, which is superb, un-sensational, unsentimental, but affecting all the same. Bravo!

  • Dunkirk

    Dunkirk

    ★★★★½

    This us my favorite story from WWII, so I've been avoiding this movie or if fear it wouldn't live up to the material. That was foolish of me. Nolan made all the right choices from casting to cinematography to treating the project like a souped up silent film with minimal dialogue and exposition. Damn near perfect.

  • The Cloverfield Paradox

    The Cloverfield Paradox

    ★★★½

    I expect this not to stand up super will on subsequent viewings but it was fun and now I'm going to re-watch the other two films XD
