|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."
|42 T7||Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) - Aug 21, 2016
"Probably the most beautiful children's movie of the last decade, but unfortunately the plot falls apart a bit in the last act. Still absolutely worth the watch. Reminded me of scenes in 100 Years of Solitude and others in the magical realism genre."
|43 T8||The Invitation (2015) - Jul 18, 2016
"Worst dinner party ever."
|25 T2||The Good Dinosaur (2015) - Jul 15, 2016
"What happened to Pixar? Why do all their more recent films feel so unsubstantial? There was nothing here that felt interesting or unique. It was perfectly average."
|27 T2||The Neon Demon (2016) - Jun 26, 2016
"I think it's a bit ironic for a filmmaker so reliant on stylistic visuals to criticize the shallowness (and cruelty) of beauty. He may be right, but he's (and the other two screenwriters) not saying anything new. Performances were good though!"
|40 T6||Top Secret! (1984) - Jun 18, 2016
"Is it the funniest movie ever? No. Does it have an underwater bar brawl, giant telephone, a young Kilmer who is surprisingly good at dancing, a game of tic-tac-toe played on a window, and as much lunacy as you could want? Yes. God yes."
|46 T10||The Legend of Korra (2012) - Jun 10, 2016
"One of the best animated series I've ever seen and easily the equal of The Last Airbender. The great strength of this show are the changing plotlines. Where TLA had only a single quest, Korra expands this to 4 accompanied by 4 unique villains. Through these quests, the writers explore a wide swath of topics, including anarchism/spirituality/family/revolution/etc. I firmly believe that the intelligent and enlightened Zaheer is one of the best "bad guys" ever created for children's TV."
