    I don't know why but I think about this movie now and then. Just now a version of "Everybody's talkin'" came up in my Weekly playlist in Spotify and my mind started drifting.
    What a great, sad, weird movie. It really is true, they don't make them like this anymore.

    I'm walkin' here, I'm walkin here!

    Excellent.

    ★★★★

    Bryan Singer + X-Men remains a match made in heaven.


    And boy, that one Quicksilver sequence. A thing of beauty.

    Weirdly biblical? I got nothing.

    Surprisingly watchable. Or giving that it's Daronofsky at the helm not that surprising.

  • Godzilla

    Godzilla

    ★★

    Another 3D-econ-crazed Blandacle.

    I have come to the conclusion that maybe outside of the Marvel Studios and Nolan Hollywood has become incapable of producing an action blockbuster that comes with something that you could call a plot without hysterically laughing.

  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2

    ★★½

    A thousand villains and a plot held together by gaffer tape.

    The people behind this movie have apparently not seen the third Maguire-Spiderman.

    Also, in light of what happened before in this movie -just only referring here to the emotional center of the flick-, the last thing Spiderman says is the most jarring, tone deaf thing I've heard all year in a movie.
    Amazing indeed.

  • Oculus

    Oculus

    ★★★½

    An original horror movie in 2013. Who would have guessed?

    Also, Amy Pond.

  • Snowpiercer

    Snowpiercer

    ★★★½

    Railroad Tycoon meets Matrix 2.

    At times an entertainingly unique movie.
