    Six Characters in Search of an Author (1976 TV film) - 7.5/10

    Fantastic for a TV film and, admittedly, it was probably the first time I've actually watched Andy Griffith act. He was amazing, though. The Mother was unbearable at times, it tended to get a little wordy, and that almost clouded over the message, but I liked what they did with the original content and how they were able to adapt it to their vision while staying (mostly) true to the original Pirandello script.

    Oculus (2014) - 4/5

    For once its refreshing to see a mainstream horror film that doesn't rely on haunted house and boogie-man tricks (Yes I'm talking about the slew of James Wan directed/produced films). I found Oculus to be quite scary and meticulously directed. Even though the third act felt a bit all over the place, I still have to give it props for trying something new.

    Horns (2014) - 1/5

    Holy shit this is one of the most ridiculously bad movies I've seen in a long time haha. Seriously, this movie makes so little sense! There is no sense tone... one minute it's serious, the next it's dark comedy and the next it's downright hilarious in how bad it is. None of the ideas it's trying to sell work on any level. It's such a shame because based on the synopsis and the people involved I thought it had potential. Some of the acting and writing so bad that it could be passed off as a student film or something.

    The only reason I'm giving it a one is because of the main hook of the film which I thought was interesting. Too bad they did jack shit with it.

    Lucy - 0.5 out of 5

    Terrible pacing, amateur over use of Discovery Channel footage and CGI, and a flimsy, unfulfilling plot. Limitless is TONS better.

    Dallas Buyer's Club 8/10: This is a really heavy movie. It was done to perfection. I feel something that didn't really get pointed out was the fact that this didn't feel like a big budget movie. I felt like I was watching a low budget LGBT movie. It just really felt familiar in a really good way. Great performances all around, but Jared Leto really hit home with me. I had such a heavy connection with that character. Especially in the last few scenes. I mean, I bawled during her angel speech in the mirror. Anyways, good stuff.

    Yeah, I just watched Oculus and dug it. I like how they didn't try to explain too much and kept everything nice and mysterious. So many horror movies trip up when they incompetently try to build up some rich back story. Fear comes from the unknown, man.

    Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion - 4.5/5

    I must say, I was extremely well suprised by this TV movie (the first 2 episodes of the season). The trailers really do not do this justice. It is Star Wars in every possible way, and is absolutely fantastic. The team is great, and what I loved most was that the humor was actually FUNNY, it wasn't some childish slapstick crap. This looks to be a very worthy follow-up to The Clone Wars.

    Gone Girl

    Right after the movie was done I would have given it a 9. The more I think about how the story played out the more I dislike it, though.

    The score was amazing. It's the first time in his 3 Fincher movies where I didn't notice it a whole lot. It really amplified the way we were supposed to feel without taking away our attention. After the movie I couldn't distinctly remember what it sounded like. I just remembered how it made me feel. Now I can finally listen to the soundtrack since I've been avoiding it before seeing the movie!

    Gone Girl was absolutely insane. I can't remember another time where the audience was so shocked by a turn of events. Absolutely riveting, although I was surprised by how it ended.

    Yup, me too. My Film Major friend called it a "masterpiece," but he is a bit of a Fincher fanboy.....

    Drunken Master - 10/10

    Always an absolute blast to revisit. Vintage Jackie Chan for the flippin' win.


    Maze Runner - 7/10

    Went into the movie blind. Awesome experience, and holla front to Min Ho Lee for the role!


    Lawless - 8/10

    Tom Hardy was ace as per usual. Lawless was both relentless and subtle in its execution.
