Our Film Reviews

This is a collection of film reviews we've conjured up over time. Our coverage of movies is fairly sporadic, so don't expect new reviews to pop up at regular intervals, but from time to time.

Please note that the opinion of one does not reflect the views of the other; Mel and I very often disagree on the quality or enjoyability of a movie – or even what makes a movie "good" in the first place. (I rate movies based on how much I enjoyed them, and why, quite simply. Mel tends to take a more technical, in-depth approach, evaluating the film's themes and what it tried to accomplish.)
