Bio: I rate films based on whether I find them entertaining by modern standards. I don't give any leeway or "bonus points" just because something's old or foreign or obscure.

A+ 10 : movies to put in a capsule and shoot out into space to explain to aliens what humanity was about. buy.

A 9 : rock solid movie, very well made and has cultural/artistic value. buy.

A- 8 : very well made, but was just missing something. be sure to watch at least once.

B+ 7 : well made and a fun watch but not particularly artistically important or anything. may as well watch at least once.

B 6 : is it worth your time? flip a coin

B- 5 : ehhh

C+ 4 : kind of crappy

C 3 : getting into shit territory

C- 2 : pretty damn bad

D 1 : aggravatingly awful. completely wasted time you can never get back

"very mixed on this one. the cinematography is amazing, really gives you a sense of the land and region, and the untrained actors give it a real sense of authenticity. unfortunately those same untrained actors can't act at all, the lines were all delivered painfully flat and devoid of all emotion. the exchange between him and his father toward the end was particularly painful. it nearly ruined the movie for me. honestly they should've just made a documentary."
55% Phantom Thread (2017) - Aug 08, 2018
"does a great job of making it so you're just dying to know why this guy is such a psycho, what happened between him and his mother and that wedding dress, why does he have this weird perfectionist complex, even hints at it being the core of his personality in a (wonderful, imo) weird illness/dream sequence, and then NEVER ANSWERS IT, the movie just ends all weirdly, PTA what the hell man, did you run out of money or something?"
55% A Quiet Place (2018) - Jul 28, 2018
"this was pretty badass, was fun seeing the measures they had to take to survive. the solution to the aliens was kind of cheap though."

55% Ernest & Celestine (2012) - Jul 12, 2018
"excellent animation, cute characters and story, great sound and foley work. the story is a little short and simple, but it's from a children's book so whatev."
55% My Life as a Zucchini (2016) - Jun 22, 2018
"cute, but also repeatedly hints at a surprising amount of depth. too short though."
55% Unforgiven (1992) - May 24, 2018
"I didn't hate the villain enough. His crimes include not thinking to provide a cut up hooker satisfactory justice, and not wanting vigilante bounty hunters shooting people in his town. He just didn't really seem evil enough for me to fully get behind the "heroes". Loved the kid though."
72% To Live and Die in L.A. (1985) - May 10, 2018
"what really stood out are the chase scenes, either on foot or by car. in some movies you can tell they aren't really going that fast, and are using frantic camera movements to try to convey action, but the running in this is them actually hauling ass, the car chase is insane."
55% Downfall (2004) - May 05, 2018
"tended to either portray people as 100% evil or 100% good, which set off my bullshit detector. gun-stuff felt kind of cheap. was also probably 20 minutes too long. kudos to whoever found that ghoul to play goebbels though"
