    ★★★★½

    This film is just on another level than most movies.

  • The Red Turtle

    This is a very slow and silent film. In the beginning the film manages to capture your attention with very little. The animations are very well done and completely bring the rather bare looking still art to life.

    I rented this online and to be honest 40-50 minutes into the film I was kind of switching over to doing other things. I guess for me it it is sort of "boring"; it reminded me of The Tale of Princess Kaguya (also directed by Takahata) which also felt like a bit of a drag to me.

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

    This is depressing on all fronts, like going to a funeral. Technically everything's in order but prepare for that gloomy feeling afterwards. I'd expected more of a bio pic but the movie almost solely focuses on the moments after Kennedy's assasination.

  • Paterson

    ★★★½

    A perfect film to watch on a weeknight to just relax before going to bed. Not a lot happens in this film but I think that is exactly its point. Great stuff and kept me intrigued.

  • The Nice Guys

    The Nice Guys

    Entertaining story that’s deeper then you would expect but feels more like DVD than cinema material.

  • The Neon Demon

    ★★★

    Top notch sound & photography but a general lack of storyline. In between Drive and Only God Forgives.

  • Flesh + Blood

    Flesh + Blood

    ★★★★

    A movie like they don't make 'em anymore. A classic story with a classic hero and 80's style full analog visual effects. Lots of smoke, lots of nakedness and a sort of roughness that you don't see anymore, while still being a kind of cutesy love story at the same time.

  • Brave

    ★★★½

    Good classic solid Pixar entertainment - but not as good as Wall-E.

  • The Cabin in the Woods

    The Cabin in the Woods

    Weird horror movie that starts off well - but doesn't really deliver.

  • Crazy, Stupid, Love.

    Crazy, Stupid, Love.

    ★★★

    Not too bad for it's genre. Great when you just want to stop thinking for 2 hours and relax. Great male performances.

  • The Tree of Life

    The Tree of Life

    I exited the movie theater after an hour of being irritated, that might say enough. It's boring, there's no story whatsoever, sometimes you're wondering if you're watching Nat Geo and the next moment there's just a lot of closeups and high DOF shots of Brad Pitt and his family.

  • X-Men: First Class

    X-Men: First Class

    ★★★★

    Surprisingly the best X-men film I've seen.
