    ★★½

    Prior to last night I assumed Ghost was just kind of an erotic paranormal movie. turns out it's a thriller with a bunch of comedy in it. i didn't really enjoy it that much, but the movie would've shot into my top 10 all time if they woulda had demi moore and swayze have supernatural sex using whoopi as a psychic vessel. the afterlife payoff of the hitman + dickhead banker was funny. They really named swayze sam wheat huh?

    Face/Off

    ★★★★★

    Pretty much a perfect movie. Whereas Hard Target wasn't the best vehicle for John Woo in America, Face/Off absolutely was. The movie starts at 100 before kicking it up to 200 by the end. Totally absurd yet completely coherent, the plot smartly builds around a number of incredible set pieces. I love everything about it and Nic Cage should've won an Oscar.

    The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

    ★★★★

    Based solely on the narrative, this is not an interesting film. However, the set design and art direction (as well as the music) are a delight. Moreover, the way the film ends is striking and makes the entire story worth it.

  • World War Z

    World War Z

    ★★★

    Not bad, not good. Plenty of really funny moments, though, including the savior of humanity shooting and killing himself while tripping and zombies running full speed off buildings.
