Rating History

Raging Bull
Raging Bull (1980)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Gripping, dark, and powerful, Raging Bull brings out the best in Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro, as well as the rest of the cast.

After Hours
After Hours (1985)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

After Hours is a kooky, twisted, and darkly comic adventure from Martin Scorsese. It's fairly aimless, but its fun and odd events entertain for the entire run time.

Shutter Island
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Shutter Island is a dark, twisted, and arresting film. The story is a maze that keeps you guessing until the very end, it's a mystery thriller that works all the way through. The cast is fantastic, and Scorsese's directing is as sharp as ever. You don't want to miss the mind-bending madness of Shutter Island.

The Theory of Everything
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The Theory of Everything adapts Steven Hawking's story with such sincerity and charm that it's hard not to like. It does drag in some areas, but overall the strong performances from the leads and the well crafted direction and cinematography make it a sweet and heartfelt ride.

Boyhood (2014)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Had Boyhood not been filmed over 12 years, it would not have attracted nearly as much attention as it has, and would just be a good film. And although many would call it a gimmick, the idea to film it over 12 years is nothing short of pure genius. Sure, it is a gimmick of sorts, but it makes the movie feels so real and lifelike that you almost forget it's a movie at all. The acting is fantastic all round (save for Lorelei Linklater, who is pretty awful), the writing observes the life of a child beautifully, and the direction adds a realistic feel to the whole thing. It is a bit on the long side, but overall it's a very sweet film, and it gives you a real feel of nostalgia that no other movie could.
