    Spider-Man

    ★★★½

    As a drama, can't say this quite worked for me. But as a comedy...

    The rudimentary CGI and dialogue with a unique brand of hilarity just contribute to the fun here. Willem Dafoe gives a really good campy performance with a dramatic edge that's just superb cause, well, he's Willem Dafoe. And J.K. Simmons is a great addition to the cast, even in a minor role. Tobey Maguire felt out of place here, but that adds a bit to the…

    Not awful, but not especially good personally. Michael Moore really does not seem like my thing; the direction here is bland as can be. That being said, the writing wasn't awful, with the humour and a couple of performances carried the entire movie. I'm sure Canadians find this a lot funnier than everyone else, and there are some genuinely hilarious moments, but as a whole it's just meh. Genuinely don't really know what to rate this, currently deciding between a 2 and a 2.5 but above all it's just not that memorable.

    And as a Canadian, the title scares me.

    A breathtaking dance of lingering eyes and fragile words, elegant yet devastating, likely one of the best films I've seen. Wong Kar-Wai's distinctive style is toned down a notch in comparison to…

    ★★★★

    Doubly intricate and simplistic, the slapstick humour of Playime hardly disguises the film's commentary on the convoluted workings of the modern world, and I'm sure it's not meant to. Like Modern Times but for the '60s and also not at all like Modern Times. The first half hardly had me engaged, I certainly admired it a lot more than I liked it, but the second half is absolutely delightful. The restaurant scene... do I need to say more? I relate…
