|70 62%||Walking and Talking (1996) - Oct 15, 2019
"Charming, and hits emotional notes that were aimed for. A product of the Seinfeld era, and like that, aims low but is put together well. Good, if basic."
|75 75%||Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009) - Oct 14, 2019
"Nicolas gets let out of the cage, and immediately dives into a pile of coke and heroin, after which he tries to solve a multiple homicide. Just about everything that happens after that is only what you might expect in a situation like that, right down to the alligator bit. Brilliant."
|80 86%||Rescue Dawn (2006) - Oct 11, 2019
"I am one who welcomes a Hollywood film finally with images that can breathe, and rest and wander. Enjoyed it."
|40 21%||John Wick (2014) - Oct 08, 2019
"While exactly the thing I needed to pass the time and shut brain off last night, I am feeling dispassionate about this film. At best. Umberto Eco's conclusion: "If, to go from A to B, the characters take longer than you would like, then the film you are seeing is pornographic.""
|20 6%||Bulletproof (1996) - Sep 19, 2019
"More like 420 out of 100."
|85 94%||The Hidden Dimension (1997) - Sep 14, 2019
"A little gem. In such a short run time there really develops a sense that the world is complex and amazing and magical, and that scientific inquiry and discovery, properly contextualised, should only intensify these types of experience. What a great 'kids' movie."
|80 86%||Camera Buff (1979) - Sep 14, 2019
"A film that produces some strange feelings, because often it feels like there are two layers in between the image, as if we are looking at what the cinematographer sees when they are trying to frame a shot, but its the framing and not the subject that is grasped. A certain feeling comes out of this related to the idea of getting lost in a world of images, and not connecting to life, but the film is full of stimulating ruminations over filmmaking without coming to hard conclusions."
|35 17%||Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) - Sep 14, 2019
"Kind of cute, but most of all I found this to be intricately derivative. It feels like a more complex puzzle than some older genre pieces and yet that makes for nothing original or exciting. It's also not a surprise that some fans who've been crying out for this Spidey or that one will eventually find one that satisfies their need, and yet a satisfying film will probably never result, and Into the Spiderverse could function as the 'period' at the end of a sentence."
|90 97%||Iguana (1988) - Sep 08, 2019
"Quite rarely we have a film where I'm not just enjoying the tingles of audio-visual stimulation but sitting on the edge of my seat really wanting to know what happens next. Really interesting film."
|50 27%||Hanaori (1968) - Sep 08, 2019
"A folkloric, and naive little piece with its share of charm."
