  • Wrath of the Titans

    Wrath of the Titans

    ★★★½

    1/2 better than the first (which gained a half star for the Medusa sequence)- this seems to actually have a narrative and develop the characters. Much better than the first! Paces it’s scale to the story vs studio mandated big sequences! It also fixes an egregious error the first does with the mythology so that’s bonus points!

  • Clash of the Titans

    Clash of the Titans

    ★★★

    Clash remake thoughts: some prod design stuff I really like and the Medusa sequence is still stellar.... the rest is still subpar... not grounded enough into the mythology than the original, way too paint by numbers blockbuster- it went up 1/2 star from my initial review since I really did enjoy a lot of the detail and holy hell does that Medusa sequence still land as the best point of the movie

    For a Few Dollars More

    ★★★★★

    Many consider The Good, The Bad and The Ugly the crowning entry in the Dollars Trilogy. I consider the middle entry to be it. The why the characters work with and interweave within the plot is just brilliant. Van Cleef delivers a truly memorable performance.

  • Citizen Kane

    Citizen Kane

    ★★★★½

    Yes it rightfully holds an esteemed place in film history. The technical aspects and the performances are masterful. As Welles would want us to know- it isn’t the greatest of all time and film as an art keeps getting better as it’s explored. However holding this along side Edwin S. Porter’s The Great Train Robbery and the other masters who came along is an utter necessity.
