    Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2 (8.5/10)

    Loved it. Probably my second favorite of Tarentino's work behind Basterds

    selma 7.5/10

    i watched this with my mom, who marched with dr. king as an 11 year old. we both thought it was slow and too anti-climactic for such a significant moment in the civil rights movement. we also agreed that ana duvernay did not deserve a best director's nod for her work and that david oyelowo was not that convincing as MLK. when i watched other biopics (such as malcolm x, the doors, capote...), i forgot i was watching a film and thought i was watching a well-produced documentary. denzel, val kilmer and PSH were transformative as malcolm, jim morrison and truman capote, respectively. oyelowo did not do that for me and my mom... he didn't capture the power and emotion of MLK's voice or speaking style (at least not until the final speech at the montgomerey courthouse).

    that said, there were a handful of really strong scenes that had my mother in tears remembering her time as a civil rights activist in the 60s.

    Man, I totally disagree about Oyelowo. I thought he was extremely convincing.

    his tonality and dialect were nothing like MLK's... oyelowo did a very good job (certainly the best in the film), but i don't think he was "best actor" good. his performance was not better than ralph fiennes or jake gyllenhaal, both of whom also got snubbed. i will say his performance was definitely better than brad cooper's performance.

    like i said before, at no point during the film did i forget i was watching a movie or an actor portray a legendary figure. denzel washington is one of the most iconic actors of the past 20 years and i completely thought i was watching a documentary when i saw him in malcolm x.

    I think Denzel is a little overrated too personally. Very one note. It's a good one note, but it's one note.

    Lance Armstrong: Stop at Nothing 6.5/10 Still crazy to think how a guy who was a real life super hero was a fraud, well not really.

    yeah, there are definitely some films (mostly his more recent ones) where he's not what he was... but he absolutely dominated malcolm x, and was pretty outstanding in he got game, fallen, training day, glory, mo betta blues, john q and a bunch of other films from the 90s and into the very early 2000s. i think he kinda fell into a one-note ditch sometime around the manchurian candidate (although he was pretty awesome in american gangster).

    I haven't seen many of his movies, I'll admit. I love Remember the Titans though, for what it's worth.

    It was a girls movie choice yesterday, so I took them to see the new Cinderella. It was alright, faithful to the story/cartoon film. It was well done. The girl playing the title character and Cate Blanchett were great. Good to see Robb Stark alive and well. 6.5/10

    He growls as he storms the country,
    A villain big and bold.
    And the trees all shake and quiver and quake,
    As he robs them of their gold.

    yea Django was really good too.. it would probably be my 2nd favourite if you treat Kill Bill 1 and 2 as 2 separate movies

    Basterds is undoubtedly #1 for me though, top 5 of all time in my books

    I wasn't as big on Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction as other people seem to be
