75 T7 Moonlight (2016) - Feb 10, 2017
"It's a really good film but for me the essence got lost in the three-part structure and frankly the hype. I liked different things about the different parts but I don't feel like they jelled or complimented each other perfectly. Overall for me it didn't pack the punch I feel the subject matter deserved. Found it a bit too subdued and somehow slightly too janky in its exposition. Honestly, the first act is the strongest and its downhill from there, leaving me slightly underwhelmed. Solid though."
75 T7 Moana (2016) - Feb 05, 2017
"The first act is fantastic. The animation, setting, and atmosphere is stunning. The actual voyage was a bit hit and miss for me, but for every time it falls through a bit the music brings it back to life two times over, coming very close to Princess and the Frog-quality. Disney's songwriters are actual geniuses, seriously."
75 T7 I, Daniel Blake (2016) - Jan 23, 2017
"The story is great but not the best craftsmanship I've seen. The ending is somehow underwhelming. Definitely worth a watch."
100 T10 Lion (2016) - Jan 19, 2017
"Most of the parts of this movie work really well both independently and together. There's a bit too much google maps-ing - it's not too interesting to watch, but forgivable. Strong performances overall, glimpses of fantastic cinematography and a really good balance of tone for my taste. Just short of Slumdog Millionaire."
T1 Split (2017) - Jan 19, 2017
"Shyamalan has exceeded himself in every way; A masterclass in completely terrible filmmaking. Words fail me. That ending, oh boy - hold on to your faces. Poor McAvoy really could have used a director on this film."
75 T7 Dyrene i Hakkebakkeskogen (2016) - Jan 19, 2017
"This is just a really great story and the animation is wonderful. Timeless and surprsingly nuanced."
T1 Assassin's Creed (2016) - Jan 15, 2017
"Poorly conceived. Poorly executed. Garbage."
25 T2 The Untamed (2016) - Jan 12, 2017
"I'm surprised at how unbelievably boring and uninteresting they managed to make this premise."
100 T10 Manchester by the Sea (2016) - Jan 08, 2017
"I had to watch this twice to fully appreciate it. One of the most nuanced films I can recall and Casey Affleck's performance in this is one of the best I've ever seen. For those who weren't fully captivated by this film: try watching it again. It'll get ya. "
75 T7 A Time to Kill (1996) - Jan 05, 2017
"The characters are caricatures but the performances are great. Poor Ashley Judd was way out of her depths though. "
