|60 T7||Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017) - Dec 15, 2017
"They're saying "Best Star Wars since Empire!" but I didn't like it as much as "The Force Awakens". My main issue is that what critics praised as great "twists", they were really just a series of "fake-outs", which lead me not trusting to believe anything that happens, as each and every big moment turned out not to be real, which left me uninvested emotionally. Kind of like how every big moment in "Mission: Impossible" is a face mask rip off...it tires you out."
|20 T2||Seven Samurai (1954) - Dec 09, 2017
"Granted, I was sleep-deprived when I saw it, but I was dozing off towards the end. 60% people sitting around, 30% people running around screaming, 10% bloodless action. I think the combination of black & white, plus sub-titles, plus a 3½ hour running time were just too much. By the end, characters I recognized: Karichachiko (or whatever his name was), the leader samurai, and the dude and the chick in love. Everyone else were just anonymous faces. Maybe I'll try it again someday."
|40 T5||The Disaster Artist (2017) - Dec 08, 2017
"Saw on opening night with a theatre full of what I assume were all "The Room" superfans, who scarcely went a scene without tittering gleefully. I haven't seen the original film, but after failing to find a way to rent it online, I tried boning up on some video clips ahead of this. If not for the hot crowd, I would have had a bad time. At the same time, I didn't get that much out of it and definitely wouldn't recommend it if you haven't seen "The Room". You're either in on the joke or you're not."
|20 T2||Eraserhead (1977) - Dec 06, 2017
"Plotless arthouse garbage where nothing happens, all at once."
|60 T7||28 Days Later (2002) - Dec 05, 2017
"Really good. Unfortunately I was very tired when I watched it so I'll definitely see this again. Enjoyed it, didn't know it was the Trainspotting director at the time."
|60 T7||Wonder (2017) - Dec 02, 2017
"Solid family drama with a focus on a young grade-schooler. Enjoyable. It was impressive how much they crammed into the running time, as it felt like I was watching multiple episodes of a great new TV show. It should be decreed that Owen Wilson and Julia Roberts must get married in real life."
|80 T9||Poltergeist (1982) - Nov 29, 2017
"Wow! I can't believe it took me 35 years to see this one! It clearly inspired "Ghostbusters" and "The Ring". And the references in "The Simpsons" (when the haunted house collapses into nothing), and the "WHAT'S HAPPENING!?!" meme. Finally in the loop. There are just a few Spielberg works I haven't seen yet, and I must remedy that."
|60 T7||Lady Bird (2017) - Nov 28, 2017
"Solid mother-daughter/coming-of-age drama with a load of chuckles."
|60 T7||Rob Roy (1995) - Nov 27, 2017|
|60 T7||Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) - Nov 23, 2017
"Best Fargo-ey film since Fargo. In others hands this could have devolved into my least favourite genre "sad people being sad". But fortunately, there were quite a few chuckles to keep it entertaining. Quite possibly the most critically acclaimed film of the year."
