    ★★★★½

    Not really sure where the backlash came from for this since, at the time, it was all anyone was talking about. Humans are fickle I guess. Nothing says Earth Day like watching a bunch of blue cat people defending their forest.

    ★★

    That moment when you're jealous of your children for having such awesome Power Rangers series to choose from. The Americanized version of this feels incomplete next to its Sentai twin but the action sequences will make you forget that.

    ★★★★½

    As much as I love The Life Aquatic and The Fantastic Mr. Fox, this is easily Anderson's masterwork. Every single frame is so perfectly composed it's easy to lose yourself in this endlessly charming and entertaining film. It doesn't stick the landing in the end as much as I would have liked but that's hardly a slight against the film as a whole, this is a damn near perfect experience.

    Jake Glyllenhaal is a creepy sonofabitch in this excellent tale of the cutthroat world of freelance crime scene footage. Awesome cinematography and a real sense of atmosphere elevate this to the next rung.
