    How to Train Your Dragon

    ★★★★

    Me seeing the movie for the first time.
    Okay, this is pretty good. You've got some good characters, beautiful animation, the dialogue is pretty well-written...
    Test Drive score plays on.
    BEST ANIMATED MOVIE I'VE SEEN.

  • Revenge

    Revenge

    ★★★★

    One of the most violent movies I've seen, yet it has one of the most satisfying endings for sure. I don’t care how unrealistic this movie is, this was one hell of a revenge story!

    Matilda Lutz is great.

  • The Mist

    The Mist

    ★★★★

    Message of The Shawshank Redemption: Hope is good thing, maybe the best of things.
    Message of The Mist: Losing all hope is the worst thing that could ever happen.

    Frank Darabont really knows how to deliver a powerful message.

  • Never Let Me Go

    Never Let Me Go

    ★★★★

    I'm still angry over the fact that Andrew Garfield is underrated. I have not heard in my life a scream of pain as he screamed. GOOSEBUMPS. I GOT GOOSEBUMPS.

  • The Amazing Spider-Man

    The Amazing Spider-Man

    ★★★★

    Andrew delivered the essence of Spiderman better than anyone, his physical agility, quippyness and acting in general were just incredible. Also, the amazing spiderman movies had the best spidey swinging scenes of all time, hands down. It's just sad that he didn't get his own trilogy. His films let him down.

    mary jane's dad: cover up your window they can you see when you’re changing

    peter parker: i missed the part where that’s my problem

  • The Big Sick

    The Big Sick

    ★★★★

    "We lost 19 of our best guys" is the best written, and best delivered, joke at the movies in a very long time. This movie fucking FLOORED me.

    Also, Ray Romano in the hospital cafeteria may have been the funniest moment of the year. I had trouble breathing for 5 minutes. The way he plays this part super low key (with a few outbursts) is just amazing.

  • Y Tu Mamá También

    Y Tu Mamá También

    ★★★★

    Deeper and more substantial than it looks at first glance. It's to Cuarón's credit that even at its most raunchy and ribald, Tu Mam keeps its wits, its heart and its soul. The director's unadulterated thrill in making the movie shines through in every frame. What makes this film so unexpectedly strong and affecting is its frank portrayal of how we actually process our life experiences. If adolescent sex comedies were made with brains and soul instead of glands and attitude, they could look a lot like this ribald but touching road movie from Mexico ...

  • Lolita

    Lolita

    ★★★★

    I feel like I should tread carefully, and begin by saying just because I think Lolita merits the highest rating, it does not mean I’m giving the movie a flat out recommendation. This film is disturbing, make no mistake. It explores a taboo subject matter and the darkest sides of human nature simultaneously, neither of which are particularly comforting places to be. But it does so with a sense of honesty. The purpose of the exploration is not to revel…

  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
  • Good Boys

    Good Boys

    ★★★★

    "Are we 5th graders, or are we 6th graders?"
    Charges screaming into oncoming traffic

    Ah, childhood

    It's like Franklin, Michael, and Trevor from GTA V when they were kids.
