How To Train Your Dragon 2 (USA, 2014)

Directed by: Dean DeBlois. I had to review this for a real publication, and without that urging, I surely never would have seen this one or its predecessor (and I damn sure wouldn’t have found myself at a 10 am screening on a Saturday at West Edmonton Mall for a kid’s movie). 448 more words

Stagecoach (USA, 1939)

Directed by: John Ford. I’m somewhat ashamed to admit that it took me this long to see Stagecoach. Ever since a fairly in-depth course on Westerns in 3rd year Film Studies, I’ve carried a considerable chip on my shoulder about my knowledge of the genre (greater than the average jaded Millennial who knows and cares nothing about it, but not nearly enough to justify the really quite sizable chip that I literally carry on my shoulder every day). 388 more words


I feel very generous. I’ve just donated three hours of my life to one of the most vain films I’ve ever encountered.

It sounds good in theory: make a film about adolescence and use the same actor throughout, but film it over twelve years so that the physical changes are naturalistic. 357 more words
