    ★★★★

    "You've got guts."

    Insanely awesome mix of school gangs and bad ass ladies on motorcycles, twirling razorblades, and training montages. Loved that flashback stunt near the shore. Wow, what a finale.

    Thank God someone uploaded this!

    "Hey, you've got it all backwards. First you get crippled then you try to commit suicide!"

    An emotional and fulfilling sports film experience that is different from most other sport films, 'Inside Moves' features a similar atmosphere and slew of well-cast characters that rivals iconic films such as 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' and 'Rocky.' Providing plenty of social commentary on the handicap without being too heavy-handed, Donner delivers an atypical, moving film that features David Morse's acting debut…

    "I did something bad, maybe it was wrong."

    Ham fisted sophomoric feature where she unfortunately tried to channel 'A Face in the Crowd' for the smart phone age. Garfield commits and some solid LA backdrops, but the YOUTUBE gimmicky editing struck me as over the top. Only an Hollywood heir could've gotten this script made.

    "A door to keep out the hostile world."

    Rather fuzzy and feverish tale of what happens when you're a fiendish museum director who is enraptured by a tragically disturbed student. Not to mention when you find a fossilized shaman with shrooms and tattoos.

    Honestly shocked someone can make these movies and not keel over from a stroke.

    Pity the actress never acted again, or, good for her if she didn't want to. Rather demanding role.

    "God is a squirrel."

    BEST film of 2015.

    With Cheevo's artful cinematography and Leo's most extreme performance yet, Inarritu is able to craft his best film from one of the most monstrous productions in recent years. A modern epic, it can only be compared to the sheer awe-shock I had when seeing Mad Max: Fury Road earlier this year. I watched some similar films in preparation like 'Man in the Wilderness' (same story) and 'Jeremiah Johnson', a longtime favorite of…

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "They found you."

    A future case-study on style vs substance and proof that Roger Deakins can't save EVERY movie, 'Blade Runner 2049' has none of what I admired about the first one: immersion in creepy future LA with rainy ramen noodles + droves of cultural crowds, some atypical acting (Harrison Ford strip club scene), heartwrenching action (retiring Zora), humanistic characters to latch on to (toymaker), and a grizzled protagonist (Gosling could take a hit while Ford would become battered). Instead,…
