85 93% AlphaGo (2017) - Jul 11, 2018
"As it might very well spell doom for mankind (for an interesting take on this subject, check out Arthur Kroker's great book 'Technology and the Canadian Mind'), the stakes are obviously high when it comes to the implications of creative machines. First and foremost, however, this doc is ripe on human drama, and that makes it a very engaging and entertaining watch. Go is my favorite game, but even if you aren't familiar with it, this is definitely worth adding to the top of your Netflix queue."
95 98% The Browning Version (1951) - Nov 19, 2017
"Blew me away. Both the script and Redgrave's performance are sublime."
10 1% Humongous (1982) - Oct 13, 2012
"Title refers to the size of the piece of crap that this is."
90 97% Coco (2017) - Mar 01, 2018
"Beautiful, both visually and thematically, and simply a joy to watch."
85 93% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) - Feb 03, 2018
"The best new film that I have seen in quite a while. It's incredibly well-directed (shame on you, Academy), really funny and, to my surprise, rather poignant at times. So basically, if this film was a man, it would be the man!"
30 11% Dark Shadows (2012) - May 13, 2012
"Lazy and unfunny. (Not entirely unlike this mini-review)"
95 98% The Tree of Life (2011) - Sep 21, 2011
"An original and often mesmerizing coming-of-age ode, providing intimacy and personal perspective. McCracken is brilliant. Malick and Lubezki stunningly let us share his childhood, presenting family dynamics, formative years and the beauty of enjoying everyday life. The setup about ways of living seems reductive initially but they are, I gather, merely ideals thrust upon Jack, serving as a tool for organizing his trip down memory lane. I'll choose the way of grace and forgive the nature sequence."
98 99% Black Swan (2010) - Jun 15, 2012
"Instant all-time favorite. Aronofsky's masterful genrebender - an engrossing, audacious and inspired match of subject, theme and character - is an intensely suspenseful depiction of the ballet world that's raw and very real, yet harrowingly nightmarish. Portman is spectacular! An in turn enthralling, magnificently visceral and astoundingly powerful experience. The inevitable outcome leads to a beautiful, emotional crescendo. Let's just say I wholeheartedly agree with the last line of the film."
100 99% Primer (2004) - Aug 13, 2010
"Never have I been so attentive and challenged during a first viewing. Pieces to the puzzle are there in plain sight and only one is missing, the one also unattainable by the protagonists, leaving some wiggleroom for further hypotheses. Given that the field of possibilities in a time travel movie is so immense, Carruth's most impressive accomplishment is actually that the meticulousness of his astonishingly complex narrative allows for a very precise reconstruction of "prior" events. Pure genius."
100 99% Lost (2004) - Sep 01, 2015
"This brilliant show has the most exciting mystery and some of the most awesome characters of all time. Also, Michael Giacchino's score which ranges from adrenaline-fueled to heartbreaking is superhuman, and the phenomenal cliffhanger in the season 3 finale is no less than the most amazing moment, I've experienced in any narrative. 'Lost' is, in short, my favorite series. Ever."
