      The Strange Little Cat 2013
      ★★★½ Watched 19 Dec, 2016

      A film without narrative where motif itself becomes the object of monotony to ruminate upon. Jokes, melodies, objects, and even camera angles repeat in meticulously measured increments for the sake of form itself.

      79/100 - Very Good.

      The Curious Case of Benjamin Button 2008
      ★★★ Watched 19 Dec, 2016

      Fincher nails the Hollywood storytelling conventions designed to impress average viewers. Good at best.

      70/100 - Good.

      An entertaining youth film with a well crafted atmosphere, convincing performances, and a relatively solid production design. That said, it perhaps lacks a bit in maturity and would benefit from a more insightful subtext.

      69/100 – Decent.

      Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience 2016
      ★★★★ Watched 14 Dec, 2016

      Published at Aesthetics of the Mind:
      aestheticsofthemind.com/2016/12/19/voyage-of-time-imax-terrence-malick/

      A spectacular audio-visual experience lensed through a catholic-agnostic viewpoint with Brad Pitt’s voice over assuming humanity’s deepest yearnings, wonderment, and faithful ignorance. The words, like thoughts, shift from observation to rumination to curiosity, with each subject placed on screen given opportunity for reflection.

      Needless to say, not everyone shares in Malick’s assumption of humanity, so the commentary, while at times brilliant and meditative, can feel onerous in how it uses individuality to pass… more

      Loving 2016
      ★★ Watched 16 Dec, 2016

      A saccharine though well crafted recounting which wrongly presumes the emotional reach of its unconvincing drama.

      55/100 - Mediocre

      The Shallows 2016
      ★★½ Watched 15 Dec, 2016

      Somewhat entertaining blockbuster survival film with music video-esque surf scenes and Jaws inspired terror.

      65/100 - Decent

      Jackie 2016
      ★★★½ Watched 06 Dec, 2016

      Natalie Portman is utterly brilliant in her dynamic role as the vain but dedicated Jackie Kennedy. Nearly always in close up, her expressiveness breathes life and intimacy into Larrain's otherwise stiff structure and rhythm.

      78/100 - Very Good.

      Manchester by the Sea 2016
      ★★★★★ Watched 05 Dec, 2016

      Posted at Aesthetics of the Mind:
      aestheticsofthemind.com/2016/12/07/manchester-by-the-sea-lonergan-2016/

      Well structured and novelistic, a Dostoevskien tragedy conveying self-isolation and effacement in face of of a life disarmingly out of harmony, where thoughts and actions misalign and communication barriers forge rifts between self and others. Deftly handled and extraordinarily sensitive to the inner struggle of not only its primary protagonist but those around him as well. With glorious landscape imagery, finely tuned push-ins and pull-outs during emotive scenes, and an indelible though perhaps assuming operatic-orchestral score.

      92/100 - Amazing.

  3. I watched The Night Before last night. Not usually one to watch holiday shit, but I figured it was more of a comedy than a holiday flick. Wasn't bad. There were a few funny moments. Like Seth Rogan's character tripping. Worth the watch if you're not too critical of shit and just wanna watch something with some holiday humor.

    Dec 26, 2016 There's No Cure For Being A C*nt

    White Girl: A movie about gentrifying hipsters and White privilege. The daughter from Homeland does drugs and fucks everybody. Doug from The Hangover does drugs too and has coke snorted off his d-ck. Also starring underground NYC rapper Sene as the Puerto Rican drug dealer. Thought he was better in this than in Luke Cage. Felt excessive but I guess that was the point. Not as bad as I thought it would be but nowhere near as good as Kids, which was clearly an influence. It's on Netflix right now for those interested.

    nothing amazing, but a pretty good movie throughout and what made it even better for me is that the ending wasn't predictable.

    Dec 30, 2016 The boogeyman is coming

    Love Actually

    Okay movie. 2 hours long but with so many different stories/characters its difficult to really care for all of them/get into all their stories. Also too cliché ending. 7/10

    The Spectatular Now

    Seen this years ago, rewatched it. Great movie. Very simple, not a big shot Hollywood, comedy/drama. 8.5/10

    Krampus

    Yeah, kinda underwhelming but not bad at all. I liked the beginning but the action parts were a little lame imo. Nice ending part though. 7/10

  11. Just watched 'the good neighbor' on Netflix, a lot better than I was expecting and didn't go how I thought it would. Very good movie. 9/10.

    Also watched that new Rob Zombie movie 31 a couple nights ago, thought it was nothing special and not nearly as good as house of 1000 corpses or devils rejects. 5/10

    Not sure if there's a thread on this but watched the Assassins Creed movie. Loved the video games and thought it was pretty good. Just thought it'd be a bit more difficult finding the Apple :')

          Certain Women 2016
          ★★★★★ Watched 04 Jan, 2017

          Constructs resonant images of great affecting power by way of a measured Fordian rhythm befitting the women and town it at once profiles. These certain women have a certain power within, felt by those around them; Reichardt's compositions convey this power with a Bresonnian lack of embellishment. Sublime, austere filmmaking.

          91/100 - Amazing.

          A fascinating premise & wonderful child performance are sidelined by saccharine, emotion suckling oscar-cliche w/ unearned climax. The first part of the film is amazing.

          69/100 - Decent.

        Huppert is captivating in this complex character study of startling psychological depth conveyed by one and only Paul Verhoeven.

    Silver Linings Playbook

    One of the best romantice drama/comedy I have ever seen. Mostly because it isn't just another typical romantic comedy. It feels so more real. The leads are doing an fantastic job and the support characters (including de Niro) are also great. Amazing movie. 9.5/10

    I have seen a few JLaw movies but mostly she was kind of a bitch or it was a comedy. Here she was absolutely adorable and I love her now. Plus brown hair looks great on her. Amazing how she played Tiffany <3
