Critical MeMe

Time spent watching films, even crappy ones, is time well-spent.

    These aren't comments on ALL of the movies through which I've cried, yawned, laughed, and rolled my eyes, but just about everything I've seen since early 2002 is here plus a few from earlier. Post dates reflect my screening & parenthetical dates are the year of US release (aka Oscar eligibility).
    Yeah, a movie review blog isn't very original. But originality is overrated. Just ask Michael Bay.


The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Probably the best Wes Anderson movie since Royal Tenenbaums. It’s still unmistakably in his universe, but the formula felt just different enough for me to enjoy him again. Not a great movie, but it is a lovely diversion.
