American Sniper
21 months ago via Movies on Android phone

Clint Eastwood's abilities shine and Bradley Cooper is unrecognizable as he falls into portraying the realities of serving through wartime and PTSD. A fitting tribute, tastefully dramatized (mostly, a fictional antagonist sniper might have been over the top), and expertly executed.

John Wick
John Wick (2014)
24 months ago via Movies on Android phone

Noir visual sensibilities, 90's action intensity, and an aged but never faltering Keanu paint this picture that dances dangerously close on the camp line, but still comes out ahead of the modern ill-written shlock. It has it's flaws, especially towards the end, but when you get an action flick you didn't know you needed, it's a pleasant surprise.

Fury (2014)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Not for the faint of heart, but what well made war film ever is? Touches of styles that reminded me of both David Lean (Lawrence of Arabia) and Oliver Stone (Platoon), and beyond impressive in anachronistic endeavors. In a word, epic, but still falls short of a masterpiece in flow of narrative.

Annabelle (2014)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

When going in expecting an equal to the original Conjuring, it is very disappointing. Also it can easily be paralleled in plot points to the first Insidious. But as a stand alone horror film it still has some decent scares. One of the increasingly numerous examples of a "we've written ourselves into a corner" ending though.

The Boxtrolls
The Boxtrolls (2014)

Art should be seen and heard and felt. This film is a complex work of art that should be savored like an aged cheese. Too slow for modern audiences, and perhaps too appealing for the refined tastes, it may be difficult for this film to find its audience, but it found me.
