    They have a different style and rhythm. Rather than expressing something outwardly the music draws you in and takes you along for the ride.

    It's enchanting, really. It makes the whole film a pleasure to watch. The music's not "just there".

    Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

    Really good spy movie but it builds very slowly. if you like mysteries and have the patience to watch as the layers are peeled away this is great.

    Movie about a guy that finds his place as the enforcer on a hockey team. This is seriously a great movie! It really has heart but is also very exciting.

    It was better than I expected. I saw it with my nieces and we all enjoyed ourselves.

    Good flick, would have been better with about 100% less Shia Lebeouf.

    I saw The Master, Midnight in Paris, and Dredd in the last three days.

    The Master was just...I don't know exactly how to put it into words. It would definitely be better appreciated with repeat viewings. I suppose that is par for the course with P.T. Anderson films.

    Midnight in Paris had great writing, which is expected in Woody Allen films and it had that sense of humor he is known for.

    Dredd is what you might expect. It was big and dumb and I loved it. Picture "The Raid: Redemption" with a futuristic setting, no kung fu, a bigger budget and westernized sensibilities and you get this movie.

    Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas.

    Its stupid, ridiculous and immature, but it made me laugh a few times, and what else can you want from a comedy.

    Worth seeing just for NPH's bit.

    Bonnie & Clyde

    This was the first time I saw the whole thing. Incredible movie, it just has a little something for everyone. And of course it ends with a bang.

    The Hitcher (Original)

    This was such a great movie. Terror, Desperation, Suspense, Exhaustion. These are the things that make a great horror/thriller flick. Every time you think it might turn around it just gets worse for the protagonist.

    Fun homage to classic horror films that should be accessible for the whole family.

    Here is a list.

    Vertigo - Classic Hitchcock film about a man whose fear of heights leads to a tragic tale of suspense.

    Here Comes the Boom - Fun movie about a teacher fighting for his school. Fans of Kevin James and MMA should like this.

    Seven Psychopaths - As heavy as the subject matter was it remained pretty light hearted. I liked it.

    Stuff Stefanie in the Incinerator - B-movie that wasn't what I was expecting. I don't know whether I liked it but it certainly befuddled me.

    Rabid - Who knew the bombshell porn actress Marilyn Chambers had acting chops? She displayed some talent in this early Cronnenberg film, she also displayed a generous amount of T&A but that is to be expected.

    Flight

    It was a terrific film. However it would have COMPLETELY fallen apart without Denzel Washington. The guy is on another level.

    The Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey

    I can see why some people wouldn't be big on it but I liked it for the most part.

    The Life of Pi.

    Now I was fairly enthusiastic to see this - the book is a considerable insight into belief and survival, but there was something severely missing from the film that I couldn't put my finger on. It was visually beautiful and there was a sublime elegance to its performance. I liked it, but it lacked texture.

    Beasts of the Southern Wild.

    Legit one of the best movies I've ever seen. I was teary eyed for the last 30 minutes.
