    Judge for a Day

    ★★★★

    78/100

    Betty is a judge for a day. Or, rather, she tells how she'd take revenge on people if she was a judge and everyone thinks that's great and votes her in.

    The Incredibles

    ★★★★★

    First off, this is in my opinion the best superhero film ever made. Easily. It also might be my favorite animated film of all time.

    Secondly, when the character design in a movie is so darn good, one bad design stands out like a sore thumb. Dash's teacher with the round and oversized head who appears in an early scene absolutely drives me crazy. He looks terrible by comparison to everyone else. Bad enough that I'd love to see them…

  • Boyhood

    Boyhood

    ★★★

    I didn't expect to have this reaction to Boyhood, especially given how much I like Linklater's Before trilogy, but I feel like Boyhood is really only noteworthy for the "filmed over 12 years" gimmick.

    Linklater seems to have been shooting for a film about an entirely normal kid. That's great, I guess, if you like realism (although I think the two dimensionality of most of the background characters is anything but realistic), but if I'm making a choice between "realistic" and "compelling", I think I'm always going to side with "compelling".
