The Zero Theorem
2 years ago via Flixster

The older I get, the less patience I seem to have for this whiny existential angst stuff. Loved the world-building -- so many great touches, from singing pizza boxes to virtual (and hackable) therapists -- and the movie definitely made its point re: consumer culture and meaningless office jobs. I found the characters to be fairly stock, though -- the quirky romantic lead and the precocious kid may have been dressed up in future flair, but they were still a quirky romantic lead and a precocious (and dying, to boot) kid.

In a World... (2013)

Funny, with likable characters who were quirky but not so quirky as to be unbelievable, and a simple and satisfying story.

All Cheerleaders Die

The "witch" thing was cliche, and the ending was somewhat anticlimactic, but I really enjoyed this, anyway. I liked how subversively queer this movie was (three of the five main ladies were not straight, and this wasn't used to titillate the male characters or the audience -- their sexuality actually helped drive the plot), and I liked how Maddy's attitude toward her fellow cheerleaders shifted from antagonistic to familial over the course of the film.

It was nice to see a "scream queen" who did absolutely everything right, for once -- I always root for these girls, but I haven't rooted for one quite this hard in a long time. Some fun dark humor, but I felt that the movie would have benefited from more of it. I was going to give it two and a half stars, but it gets an extra half star for the piano wire alone -- that was the most unexpected bit in the movie, for me.

Enemy (2014)
2 years ago via Flixster

I was not expecting this movie to be as weird and surreal as it was. I liked it, though, and I liked it even more the more I thought about it (I watched a 20-plus-minute YouTube video discussing the symbolism, which also helped).
