001 | Sondheim: The Birthday Concert (2010) ★★★☆☆½
002 | «Company (2006) ★★★★★ I just love John Doyle's directing.
003 | 8½ (1963) ★★★☆☆½ wank-fest. sick of hearing about the angsts of misogynist ~artistes~
004 | «Citizen Kane (1941) ★★★★★
005 | Good Bye Lenin! (2003) ★★★☆☆½
006 | The Countess (2009) ★★☆☆☆½ this could have been so good
007 | The Eagle (2011) ★★☆☆☆ deliciously homoerotic but ultimately made no sense
008 | The Lookout (2007) ★★★☆☆½
009 | *Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) ★★★★★ stanning material, I don't remember the last time I fell for a movie this hard
010 | *Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol (2011) ★★★★☆ A GREAT INTRO INTO THIS FRANCHISE FOR ME. jeremy renner's ass, what.
011 | «Salt (2010) ★★★☆☆½
012 | *The Artist (2011) ★★★★★ this delightful ass movie. will win all the awards and probably not completely deserve them but eh who cares
013 | *Shame (2011) ★★★☆☆½ I am super shallow and enjoy McQueen's style but this movie was lacking motivation.
014 | Mysterious Skin (2004) ★★★★☆½ beautiful script, never watching this shit again though
015 | The Tree of Life (2011) ????? I don't know how to rate this. more performance art than film.
016 | The Wolfman (2010) ★☆☆☆☆
017 | Hello, Dolly! ★★☆☆☆ (1969) god barbra streisand is unbearable. she has lovely moments she breaks for her signature babs comedy and it just jolts you out of the story.
018 | Red ★★★☆☆
019 | «Mission: Impossible (1996) ★★★☆☆½
020 | Mission: Impossible 2 ★★☆☆☆½
021 | Midnight In Paris ★★★★☆½ judge away but I liked this beige ass movie tremendously. it's probably the music's fault.

023 | «50/50 ★★★★★
024 | Bad Teacher ★☆☆☆☆
025 | «Night of the Living Dead ★★★★☆ this movie never fails to terrify me, even with the laughable quality
026 | Mission Impossible 3 ★★★★☆
027 | Leon, the Professional ★★★★★ I put off watching this for so long but this has become a favourite. Entirely up my alley.

029 | Sucker Punch ☆☆☆☆☆½ what an odious piece of shit
030 | Little Fockers ★☆☆☆☆½
031 | «Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy ★★★★☆½ sob. martin freeman, sam rockwell, mos def, alan rickman, zooey d, bill nighy, stephen fry.. this movie was made for me.
032 | Drive ★★★★☆ weak script made stronger by good directing and skilled character actors. more
033 | *Chronicle ★★★★☆ heavy akira influences. massively enjoyable!
034 | «Moon ★★★★★ can't even begin to enumerate the ways in which this movie is perfect
035 | «Alien ★★★★☆
036 | «The Witches ★★★★★
037 | «Everything is Illuminated ★★★☆☆½ whatever, I love this movie
038 | The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou ★★★★☆ if it weren't for my Wes Anderson boner this would have a lower score.

040 | «Inception ★★★★☆½ aka the arthur and eames show
041 | «Shaun of the Dead ★★★★★
042 | «Marie Antoinette ★★★☆☆½ after not having rewatched this for years, I've found a whole new appreciation for it
043 | The Book of Eli ☆☆☆☆½ nope, not even Mila and Gary could make me like this
044 | «SWAT ★★☆☆☆
045 | Private Romeo ★★★☆☆ enjoyed for obvious (shallow) reasons but this isn't a movie I would recommend on its non-gay merits alone.
046 | Batman: Under the Red Hood ★★★★☆ omgggggg JASON FUCKING TODD.
047 | Paprika ★★★☆☆
048 | Chinatown - need to rewatch it, completely tuned out. how does a 2 hour movie seem 4 hours long
049 | A Prophet / Un prophète ★★★★★ this movie. Tahar's face. I am in awe.
050 | **Hell ★★★☆☆½ title from the German bright but it works in English as well. one of the better post-apocalyptic films for the first half, took a turn for the Hostel in the second
051 | **Oslo, August 31st ★★★★☆½ strangely life-affirming on a personal level despite it being the story of a 30something middle class white male drug addict
052 | **Free Men / Le hommes libres ★★★★☆½ WWII in France told from the POV of Arab freedom fighters. Starring Tahar Rahim! WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE?
053 | **The Sex of the Angels / El sexo de los ángeles ★★★☆☆ not a great movie but oooomg an important one. a romantic comedy about a polyamorous relationship! gay sex! cute hipsters!
054 | **Habibi ★☆☆☆☆½ I am being generous.
055 | Weekend ★★★★★ Perfect. Dialogue-driven dream film.
056 | Monsieur Lazhar ★★★★★
057 | Starbuck ★★★☆☆
058 | A Separation ★★★★★
059 | Motherland or Death ★★★☆☆½ such a vivid, accurate, honest picture of Cuba. Not enough of an aim.

001 | Lana Del Rey's Born To Die





001 | The Hollywood Economist: The Hidden Financial Reality Behind the Movies by Edward Jay Epstein
002 | Why Is Sex Fun?: The Evolution Of Human Sexuality by Jared Diamond | interesting if only for the blandly written accounts of the sexual practices of different animal species-- not so much for the book's topic (humans) since the author conveniently ignores things like masturbation and homosexuality.





001 | the colour orange
002 | I'm not sure quite how to get over Martin Freeman being the only person I'd ever consider marrying. REDACTED, OH MY GOD. You're on probation for the foreseeable future, child.
