    "Such passion together will make beautiful music."

    Oh wow, oh man. Indescribable. Looney Tunes mixed with 'Stay Tuned' and 'F for Fake'? Who knows, it was a WILD ride. So ahead of it's time. I will say nothing.

    Anyone who has seen this needs to have a signal or something.

    "Hey, you've got it all backwards. First you get crippled then you try to commit suicide!"

    An emotional and fulfilling sports film experience that is different from most other sport films, 'Inside Moves' features a similar atmosphere and slew of well-cast characters that rivals iconic films such as 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' and 'Rocky.' Providing plenty of social commentary on the handicap without being too heavy-handed, Donner delivers an atypical, moving film that features David Morse's acting debut…

    "Talk about having a bad day."

    Always thought 'Pandorum' was the best 'Alien' "rip-off" but this really blew my mind. Excellent camaraderie among the cast, insane creature effects that surprise you, but, most of all, an amazingly rich and textured set design. Loved the industrial backdrop and sounds of machines.

    Take notes!

    "Is that a 'We Are the World' 'fuck you'?"

    Labute really excels in this flick. It's cast well, cool cul de sac soaked in suburban malaise. Good portrayal of strict family next to a "looser" one. Jackson is in full angry god mode and I loved every second. Grounded and never got tooo crazy as if it was early 90s.

    "God is a squirrel."

    BEST film of 2015.

    With Cheevo's artful cinematography and Leo's most extreme performance yet, Inarritu is able to craft his best film from one of the most monstrous productions in recent years. A modern epic, it can only be compared to the sheer awe-shock I had when seeing Mad Max: Fury Road earlier this year. I watched some similar films in preparation like 'Man in the Wilderness' (same story) and 'Jeremiah Johnson', a longtime favorite of…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "They found you."

    A future case-study on style vs substance and proof that Roger Deakins can't save EVERY movie, 'Blade Runner 2049' has none of what I admired about the first one: immersion in creepy future LA with rainy ramen noodles + droves of cultural crowds, some atypical acting (Harrison Ford strip club scene), heartwrenching action (retiring Zora), humanistic characters to latch on to (toymaker), and a grizzled protagonist (Gosling could take a hit while Ford would become battered). Instead,…
