Films watched during their theatrical run are given a rating on a scale of Zero Stars to Four Stars. Films watched during a film festival or on dvd largely stay unranked.

Seldom is the occasion where I run to my keyboard immediately after the credits roll, as I try to allow my brain a chance to marinate on a film before completely forming an opinion.

That said, the score is the score. All of these films were rates based on my feeling after first watch, and I believe in keeping the integrity of that first reaction. Over time, my opinions of some of these films have swelled (THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON for instance), while my opinion of others has diminished (THE FIGHTER). Nevertheless, the original reviews don’t get revised.

Reviews are written to be relatively spoiler-free, but some details are inevitable. Please understand that any specifics I spoil are specifics I believe can be discussed without ruining the viewing experience.

Finally, a note about the format. The full cinematic reviews are posted with a pair of images from the film embedded into the post. After a short introduction, I spend a paragraph or two summarizing the plot. If you don’t care to read about the plot and instead just want to skip to my reactions, jump ahead to the text that follows the second image: Everything from there down is analysis.

Enjoy!
