I love movies. They can be great art or great entertainment. A small few can change lives, and many that don't can offer glimpses into the lives of others, taking us away from our limited perspectives by allowing us to, if only for a few hours, experience and understand people, places, and existences very different than out own. Some offer temporary reprieve from the stresses, or even just the damning relevance, of our real lives. And some serve as fevered deposits of thoughts and ideas so layered and insightful that they can take days, weeks, or sometimes even a lifetime to unravel. I love to talk about movies, and not just in a "wasn't that scene cool" fashion (although I'm up for that sometimes as well). What does this amount to? Mostly, that if you found any of the above statements to be excessively uninteresting or irrelevent, than you probably needn't go through the trouble of a friend request. But feel free to read the reviews (which are VERY much a work in progress). Otherwise, I'm rather open, tolerant, and have no aversion to non-movie-related conversations, so far as they are sensible, civil, and at least mildly intelligent (I don't have much tolerance for pointless web blather). Otherwise, feel free to hit me with anything that's on your mind at any given time. I don't bite, and even if I did, I'm not entirely sure how I'd get it to transfer through your computer screen. Am working on a solution to that though. Also a work in progress. One final note for anyone on the "Meet People" area of the site. If you want me to add you, put something on your profile, rate some movies, or have some other sign of life present. If I can't tell your profile from that of a bot, I (understandably, I hope) will not add you.

James' Recent Ratings

Movies | TV seasons
The Matrix Revolutions

The Matrix Revolutions

4 years ago via Flixster

Watch it... if you want to see a visually and technically outstanding conclusion to the Matrix trilogy, including an apocalyptic, epic battle between the machines and the forces of Zion that makes previously filmed apocalyptic, epic battles look like minor skirmishes in slow motion.

Avoid it... if you expect the finale to keep you as mentally or emotionally engaged as the first and second act did, for Revolutions is as inept at coming to convincing logical conclusions as it is in making you care about its characters.

The Matrix Reloaded

The Matrix Reloaded

4 years ago via Flixster

Watch it... if you want to see a smarter, trendier, visually and emotionally more complex, and ultimately more interesting film than the original, while still retaining the same look and feel.

Avoid it... if you found the first film to be already stretching your ridiculous-o-meter, for in addition to being better on almost all fronts than the original, The Matrix Reloaded is also several degrees more ridiculous.

Minority Report

Minority Report

4 years ago via Movies on Facebook

Watch it... if you are a fan of science fiction or film noir, as Minority Report is one of the most visionary, morally and psychologically complex, and downright exhilarating films to hit the genre in years.

Avoid it... if you believe that science fiction in film should restrain itself to carefree escapism and mindless space-opera.
