  • Fahrenheit 451

    Fahrenheit 451

    ★★

    This is a hollow adaptation, containing almost none of the subtlety, nuance, and political and philosophical intrigue of the source material. Sure, there are a couple interesting conversations, but they are nearly bulldozed by the by-the-numbers plot and forced romance.

    The world created is also laughingly cheesy at times. I just can't take it seriously when a group of terrible child extras playing middle schoolers shouts "Boooo!" when they see books, or the social media network that viewers use to…

  • A Boy and His Atom: The World's Smallest Movie

    A Boy and His Atom: The World's Smallest Movie

    Obviously, this is more of a technical achievement than a movie, but it's tinny sound effects create a charm that I appreciated. Plus, we're moving freaking atoms; science is amazing.

    The Red Pill

    ★★★★

    A great primer on the Men's Rights movement and the problems facing men today. The structure of the documentary doesn't feel 100% cohesive, but the content within is emotional, factual, and terrifying.

  • Hot Fuzz

    Hot Fuzz

    ★★★★½

    Hot Fuzz is the rare film that tries to be everything and succeeds. It's a balls-to-the-wall action film, an emotional drama, a hilarious comedy with even a little horror thrown in, all fueled by the always amazing chemistry between Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
