INSTANT REVIEW: Nebraska (2013) (5/5)

My only gripe is that it's in black and white. Otherwise, excellent. Watch it!

INSTANT REVIEW: Attack the Block (2011) (3/5)

Would probably be better if I could understand what they're saying. If you like low-class urban English accents, here's the horror-comedy you've been waiting for. Americans: watch with subtitles.

INSTANT REVIEW: The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) (3/5)

A weak showing by Wes Anderson, but still quite good if you like his work. Ralph Fiennes can do comedy too, turns out.

INSTANT REVIEW: Interstellar (2014) (4/5)

High concepts, beautiful filmmaking, and Matthew McConaughey IN SPACE. It'll get you thinking. Pretty good.

INSTANT REVIEW: Silver Linings Playbook (2012) (3/5)

Has some good performances. De Niro being De Niro is a bit distracting, though. Trigger warning: dance competition.

INSTANT REVIEW: Grey Gardens (1975) (2/5)

Those harpies shouting EDITH! at one another from across their dilapidated mansion will be the only thing you'll hear in your nightmares for weeks. Groundbreaking and often referenced in popular culture, but not worth it.

INSTANT REVIEW: Upstream Color (2013) (3/5)

At-times inept dialog and sound mixing balanced out by a mind-blowing concept and a unique visual presentation.

INSTANT REVIEW: Lincoln (2012) (3/5)

A fine piece of American propaganda that will only appeal to Americans. Basically a good way to string together clever anecdotes about Lincoln. Foreigners won't even know who that is.

INSTANT REVIEW: Looper (2012) (4/5)

This review is nearly three years late, so I'll just go ahead and spoil it: if more than one time traveler tries to kill you kid, you can safely assume your kid is Future Hitler.

INSTANT REVIEW: Hobo with a Shotgun (2011) (3/5)

Dumb as hell, but shot in an interesting way. If the trailer from Grindhouse appealed to you, you'll probably get a kick out of it.
