90 97% Coco (2017) - Mar 01, 2018
"Beautiful, both visually and thematically, and simply a joy to watch."
10 1% Humongous (1982) - Oct 13, 2012
"Title refers to the size of the piece of crap that this is."
60 51% The Sound of Music (1965) - Mar 11, 2011
"♫ pre-dict-able plot-lines and chea-sy ro-man-ces ♫ o-ver-hyped clas-sics and mu-si-cal dan-ces ♫ wild-ly an-noy-ing small chil-dren who sing ♫ that will ne-ver be my fa-vo-rite thing (... but, hey, on the other hand, it's hard to truly hate this.)"
100 99% Fight Club (1999) - Feb 02, 2012
"If it were possible to reexperience one film for the first time, I'd choose this. In terms of style Fincher is obviously peerless. The fusion of his edginess and wry humor with Pahlaniuk's discerning social commentary is dangerously perfect. Norton is utterly brilliant (beating himself up routine, voice-over) and - once you've gotten over the most knockout-awesome use of unreliable narration ever - the quality of his performance adds poignancy to what underneath all the attitude is a love story."
85 93% Room at the Top (1959) - Aug 16, 2017
"I need to watch some more films from the British New Wave, apparently, because this muscular and nicely shot love triangle tale, which won Academy Awards for Best Actress (Signoret) and Best Writing, was excellent."
99 99% The Thick Of It (2005) - Oct 20, 2016
"One of my top 3 favorite tv series of all time. The writing of the mindblowingly high number of acidic jokes per minute (delivered by a hilarious ensemble in the breakneck fashion of old screwball comedies) is simply unparalleled."
100 99% Mulholland Drive (2001) - Apr 16, 2012
"Lynch is undebatably a cinematic master. To be able to conceive and pull off telling a story this complex, ambiguous and - arguably - profound he must also be no less than a genius. The nature of the film's narrative lets the viewer solve (and forever reinterpret) his tantalizing riddle. I love Watts' effervescent performance, her character's audition, the Silencio show, the small bursts of comedy and, more than anything, the first scene at Winkie's, perhaps the best ever committed to celluloid."
95 98% A Separation (2011) - Dec 02, 2011
"Accessible and engaging. Farhardi shows that what's practical must sometimes take precedence over an ideal when one is forced to prioritize conflicting responsibilities (church, state, family, integrity). Trusting the power of the moral predicaments, he avoids sentimentality and draws exquisite performances. His multifaceted story - both culturally specific and universally relatable - is told elegantly, with perfect unity. An empathetic glimpse into the complicated lives of realistic characters."
99 99% Memento (2001) - Sep 24, 2009
"Telling the story backwards is a brilliant device, not only because it makes for excellent suspense and surprises but especially because you take part in the mystery in a way similar to the protagonist who, as a result of his condition, is also disorientated and confused. The game cast and a neat twist seal the deal; this was, deservedly so, an instant classic."
30 11% Dark Shadows (2012) - May 13, 2012
"Lazy and unfunny. (Not entirely unlike this mini-review)"
