Berserk: The Golden Age Arc 2 - The Battle for Doldrey (2012)

I didn't think the first one was that good, but I thought it had potential. This one was boring, stupid, and was weighted down with subplots that did nothing to drive the story forward. I wouldn't recommend any of these movies, but if you're really set on watching them, at least do yourself a favour and miss this one.



Batman Begins (2005)

I liked it the first time. The second time, the new car smell had faded and it felt like it was hitting me over the head with the courage thing.



Berserk: The Golden Age Arc 3 - The Advent (2013)

After hours of waiting for this series to get better, part three offers a really good plot twist, and great artwork. Then, out of nowhere, a tentacle rape scene. I wish I'd never wasted my time.



Memento (2000)

Fun idea for a movie, and a fun ending, but, man, a lot of this movie is just the guy pacing around, walking across rooms, walking down hallways, walking outside. Basically a short film needing an editor.



Lost in Translation (2003)

The visuals are great, music is great, Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson are always fun to watch, but there's not much to the story or characters and there's a lot more style than substance.



Good Will Hunting (1997)

The plot of this movie is that Will Hunting is a genius but he doesn't want to do genius things. Everyone he talks to tells him to go away because you can't be a genius in Boston. Apparently the only way to be a genius is to leave a city full of world-renown universities. Eventually everyone nags him enough and he gets in his car and drives off to genius land. I think the song that plays as he drives off is "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow", but it's been a while since I've seen it so I might be remembering that wrong.



O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)

Fun. A bit dumb. Worth a watch every ten years or so.
