|38 T5||The Big Sick (2017) - Aug 05, 2017
"I'm very divided about this movie. It was a great watch, but it has some undeniable problems. It's kind of a textbook case of how far charm can carry flawed storytelling. In this case, quite far. It certainly doesn't hurt that the story is 90% true. I'll probably watch it again when it inevitably ends up on Netflix."
|33 T3||Gangs of New York (2002) - Jul 28, 2017
"Not bad, but the majority of the film was kind of boring. The draft riot sequence is a shockingly good example of intersectionality, showing both the unfairness of the draft for poor families while also criticizing those same families for racial violence, and, at the top of it all, the wealthy class that believes, incorrectly, that they are immune."
|44 T8||Oh, Hello on Broadway (2017) - Jul 08, 2017
"I watched this in two sitting and I think that helped with the length a bit. Either way, I loved it. It's not for everyone, but if you like these two comedians and these two characters... well... it's the only place you can see that."
|42 T7||Don't Think Twice (2016) - May 19, 2017
"A very good movie for people who work in comedy. I can't imagine it would be too entertaining/heartbreaking for a viewer from outside that world."
|42 T7||Ghost in the Shell (2017) - May 07, 2017
"Much, much better than I was expecting. Visually impressive, very well acted, and does a surprisingly good job discussing heavy themes without getting bogged down."
|44 T8||Get Out (2017) - Mar 06, 2017
"Just a very good horror film, with some comedy elements, about race in America. I've always been a sucker for scary movies about social issues (eg Rosemary's Baby) especially when they're this well written."
|30 T2||Doctor Strange (2016) - Dec 03, 2016
"It had like 7 minutes of cool visual effects and I was expecting a lot more. That being said, it was fairly enjoyable and it was nice to see a villain that wasn't bent on destroying/conquering the world. Unfortunately the plot was dull. It felt like they were just rushing through this origin story on their way to making Doctor Strange 2."
|35 T4||The Accountant (2016) - Nov 16, 2016
"Maybe I just had really low expectations, but this wasn't bad at all. Sure the premise is ridiculous (as other commenters have pointed out) but so is James Bond and Indiana Jones, so chill. What impressed me most was the handling of spectrum disorders. The film states clearly that autism is NOT Affleck's character (unlike, say, in films like Rain Man) but rather a part of a larger whole, a larger whole also shaped by experience, friends, upbringing, and, most importantly, Affleck's moral code."
|44 T8||Rusalka (1997) - Aug 30, 2016
"Beautiful. Each frame of this film is something I would gladly hang on my wall at home."
|35 T4||Trumbo (2015) - Aug 30, 2016
"It was entertaining and, even though it's historically suspect, it did manage to reproduce the feel of the blacklist era pretty well."
