Under the Skin (2013) | hollow bullshit maximizing ScarJo’s forte of blank face acting skills.
Becoming Bulletproof (2013) | well this thoughtful and thoroughly engaging documentary totally made the cynicism in me melt.
Noah (2014) | a part of me is so glad that Darren Aronofsky got the chance to basically make a bold, big ass budget experimental film, but the other part of me feels like it was such a waste of funds due to its batshit insanity, especially in the second half of the film.
Last Days in Vietnam (2014) | this documentary covers the harrowing true story of the evacuation of the American Embassy in Saigon, and while there are some incredible moments, overall the film is a little staid and “tv.”
E-Team (2014) | this is an incredible and raw documentary that follows members of Human Rights Watch’s E-Team (Emergencies Team) as they document and report on atrocities that happen throughout the world. you’ll end up feeling thankful knowing that these incredible people are out there in the world, fighting the bad guys.
20 Feet from Stardom (2013) | a fabulous portrait that finally turns the spotlight on the people whose backup vocals are a part of some of the greatest songs in recent history.
Bad Words (2014) | a so-so directorial debut by Jason Bateman that takes a crack at the niche genre held up by About a Boy and Bad Santa.
Only Lovers Left Alive (2013) | Jim Jarmusch cobbled together some great actors, made them play music-loving vampires, threw in some wicked humor, and created a great film.
Frozen (2014) | i’m so happy about the success of this film and the fact that it was directed by a woman (and a CU alum to boot), but i’m gonna dissent and say that i didn’t totally love this film.
Ridley Scott + Michael Fassbender
Prometheus (2012) | The Counselor (2013)
i have a soft spot in my heart for these two despite their double collaborative misses.
Back after an almost 3-year hiatus. For now, anyway.
Alfonso Cuarón + George Clooney
back by popular demand of a friend.
