    Definitely! There's something more than that, too, though.

    I keep thinking about how the movie handled its sad bits. It would have been easy to miss them, because they were handled without...

    For some reason, I thought that The Grand Budapest Hotel was going to be for old people who watch a lot of Masterpiece Mystery. Or else I thought it was going to be pretentious. It wasn't-- it was...

    My dissatisfaction with The Wolf of Wall Street reminded me of Glengarry Glen Ross-- and lo, it's streaming on Netflix. So I watched it again.

    The Wolf of Wall Street seems to be aimed at raucous young men-- the kind of people who really like The Hangover.

    It was not aimed at me.

    Its pacing is strange: this 3 hour long movie is made...

    I was playing a ton of Warlock (the first one) because it was one of the better, repeatable games I had laying around. And it's a great game, despite its flaws. But I was overplaying it, so I...

    One of those games where I have no complaints (without putting a bit of effort in), yet I don't plan on ever replaying it.

    Thanks for the link. That wasn't a bad review, and it is interesting to contrast. I think The Giver was, to Robertson of the Verge, first a novel, and then a movie, but I never knew the novel. ...
