As of January 2013, I’ve decided to log some of the movies I’ve seen, either in theaters, on DVD/Blu-Ray, or on Netflix.
Life of Pi — a gorgeous film, beautifully adapted from Yann Martel’s 2001 novel. A+.
Lincoln — Daniel Day Lewis is the centerpiece of this film. A dull story shines away from the performances. B+.
Django Unchained — a Quentin Tarantino blow-’em-up set in the 1850s. Highly entertaining. B+.
Silver Linings Playbook — A heart-warming romantic comedy that a man can appreciate. Not sappy at all. A-.
Oldboy – a wild, sometimes-hard-to-follow, Korean horror flick. Very disturbing. C+.
Indie Game – a documentary that goes behind the scenes of games like Braid and Fez. B+.
Upstream Color – a vivid, visceral, puzzling, and beautiful film. B+.
Elysium – much too similar to District 9 to be taken seriously. B-.
Gravity – a breathtaking film with incredible visuals and compelling metaphor for living. A.
Flight – it’s been a while since I’ve seen a bad Denzel Washington film. B.
