DCU: Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Deluxe Edition
20 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's a daring move to try and adapt a Frank Miller graphic novel into an animated film and can be done right if you yourself are daring enough to make bold, artistic moves. The Dark Knight Returns falls short of delivering on the artistry, but is supported by some great action sequences, dark and dramatic scenes, and a smooth, organized plot. However, it misses on the heavier elements and themes that Miller was intent on in his graphic novel.

The Hidden Fortress (kakushi-toride No San-akunin)
20 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

A tale not unrecognized by George Lucas, The Hidden Fortress is Kurosawa's excellent portrayal of samurai lifestyle at its most fun. The characters are ecstatic and outgoing and the story commands an adventurous attention.

The 400 Blows (Les Quatre cents coups)
20 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Truffaut's masterful piece of New Wave cinema is an unhesitant look at adolescence, sporting no sentimentality or over-dramatic flare. Truffaut's use of space is undeniably clever, and the main characters to follow are an exemplary look at a controlling and disappointed society. Among its most interesting of features is its conflict of generations.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
48 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Catching Fire elevates the tension and tightens the focus on the humanistic issues at hand with little to no time given to nonsense gags or laughs. It is entertaining as it is thought-provoking.

The Hunger Games
48 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Hunger Games is good to see after its potential Twilight rupture. The story is fresh with great potential that uniquely blends media and fashion and show with death, brutality, and social classification. Though, the third act slowly strays from its deep themes of morality and ventures into hints of teenage appeal with uninteresting love triangles.
