Paddington - (2014) - A-
--> Charming, sweet and innocent.

Quartet - (2012) - B
--> Quite a novel subject, and worthy to make elderly the centre of a movie. What annoyed me slightly is that the main actors were cast for, well, being good actors. I was annoyed we never saw them sing.

Leviathan - (2014) - A+
--> If you haven't seen a Russian movie before, start here.

Fantastic Mr. Fox - (2009) - A
--> Repeat watching. This is the kind of movie I could watch once a year. I love the style, the camera angles, the witty dialogue. Also refreshing is the short length. I love how it doesn't wait around to get to the good stuff.

On the Waterfront - (1954) - C+
--> This is supposedly some masterpiece, probably because it was innovative for the time. But to me, it has aged too much, the plot is quite cliché and predictable, and overall I feel like there are better movies from this era.

Nebraska - (2013) - B+
--> Great movie. An honest depiction of rural America, without the veneer.

Love in the Time of Cholera - (2007) - D
--> Snoozefest, chick flick. Way too long for a movie where nothing happens.

Bambi - (1942) - B
--> This movie is 75 years old, and yes, it shows. However there are some enjoyable scenes and the animation is great. Funny how hunters were upset at the time of release, haha.

The Dinner - (2013) - B+
--> Great drama movie about people having dinner.

Moneyball - (2011) - B+
--> This is what all sports films should be: barely an sports, but all of the drama.

The Deep Blue Sea - (2011) - D-
--> Despite being about 40 minutes shorter than Love in time... this is just as painful to watch. Minutes-long scenes in which absolutely nothing happens. I guess this is a good depiction of depression, but in reality it's just artsy pretentious bs, and so so boring to watch.

Foxcatcher - (2014) - B+
--> Gripping performance by Steve Carelll and solid performance by Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo.

Courage Under Fire - (1996) - B+
--> Starts out as a war movie but really is more of a courtroom drama type suspense film. Great fun.

The Amazing Spider-Man - (2012) - B+
--> Another superhero movie, yawn. Actually, I was pleasantly surprised. I think Andrew Garfield makes for a great Spider-Man.

Gloria - (2013) - A-
--> Starts a little slow, but really good movie. At the end you feel happy about what you saw.

Pacific Rim - (2013) - C
--> The movie starts out well enough, although the reasoning for having 2 pilots in a mech (ok, "Jaeger") is just a lazy excuse to allow for more emotion and dialogue. For me, the movie starts to fall apart after about 40 minutes, after we well and truly get into the "gifted girl with a troubled past" plot that has been done to death already.

Plowed through The Iron Fist over the weekend.  While I think I mostly agree with the general feelings about the show, I have to disagree with the critique about the choreography.  While I did find it annoying that certain parts of fights where obviously done with stunt doubles (likely due to the inclusion of non-practical techniques), much of it was very good, with the sword-work of Jessica Henwick being the absolute best part, followed by the battle with Zhou Cheng as a close second.

Now back to The Man in the High Castle...

Even more movie...let's go!

The Sting - (1973) - B+
--> Heist/con movie starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford. A little dated in places, but great fun.

Ice Age: Continental Drift - (2012) - C
--> Man, they should've ended this franchise after the second or third movie. They're making the same movie over and over again. Highlight is Peter Dinklage as Captain Gutt!

Take Shelter - (2011) - A
--> Tremendous performance by Michael Shannon in this psychological thriller. You can see his mind unravel. Recommended.

Garden State - (2004) - B+
--> A bit of a simplistic, quirky feel-good movie.

Transsiberian - (2008) - A-
--> Wow, what a thriller! The buildup, and the "things can't possible get any worse - damn, they just did!" feeling is excellent.

Her - (2013) - B-
--> Great concept, but feels like they could've done much more. No idea what though, but towards the end it felt a bit boring watching Joaquin Phoenix just sit around and talk.

Secretary - (2002) - B+
--> Damn, Maggie Gyllenhaal is sexy in some of these scenes. The tension is nicely done.

Selma - (2014) - A
--> Must-see historical drama regarding the Selma protests led by Martin Luther King.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier - (2014) - B
--> I remember finding it quite alright, but now that I'm trying to write about it (maybe 2 weeks later), I can't seem to remember what the plot was about...I think that's an issue with these Marvel movies, most of them feel very similar to one another.

Mr. Turner - (2014) - A+
--> Excellent biopic about the 19th century painter J. M. W. Turner. Engrossing characters, great decors and wonderful landscapes throughout.

Kingsman: The Secret Service - (2014) - B+
--> Spy comedy, sort of similar to Johnny English or Austin Powers. Quite graphic in its violence at times, but good fun.
