Bio: I try to add a mini-review to every ranking, without knowing any of the narratives from the unreliable IMDB reviews.
5 stars (100): Excellent (my top picks)
4 stars (80+): Very good (enjoyable multiple times: a full package of great stuff)
3 stars (60+): Good (can be enjoyed once: some parts are great)
2 stars (40+): Mediocre (gets dull and boring)
1 star (20+): Horrible (really pissed me off)

-> Protagonist(s) + Style + Score + Suspense/Momentum + Overall Feeling

I'm beginning to go down harder on movies that I can't sit through. This is an instant ticket to mediocrity.

"Nothing beats Terrence Malick. Stunning, meditative and enticing as always."
80 89% Bone Tomahawk Bone Tomahawk (2015) - Rated 03 May 2017
"I was immediately captured by the short summary - and I was not disappointed! This film unfolds precisely as it should. There is a long sequence where nothing really is happening, and it is fantastic to take in the atmosphere. If you are interested in a tense, gut-wrenching western/horror, try this one."
80 89% A Brighter Summer Day A Brighter Summer Day (1991) - Rated 21 Mar 2018
"This went by rather quickly. Reminds me of "The Best of Youth", but this film here is more polished and coherent than it. The scenery is so completely natural that it just pulled me in. Many great, memorable characters and scenes."
