    ★★★★★

    Watched this in the theatre as part of a double feature with the new sequel.

    My profile lists this as one of my 4 favorite films. I consider it without contender to be the best science fiction film ever, and a strong contender for the greatest film I've ever seen.

    I'd like to ramble a little bit about it.

    We're talking of course about the Final Cut. The theatrical cut of the film is a monstrosity we will never speak…

    I find it impossible to review this movie without talking at length about the 20 years of superhero movies that brought us here. Apologies in advance.

    **************BACKGOUND*********************

    We are currently in a wave of superhero films. In the last 20 years, Marvel and DC have seen at least 66 films based on their properties. Depending how you count, this wave began either in 1998 with Blade. Or in 2000 with X-Men. Blade proved a Marvel property could find success on…

    I never saw 30 as the age I should have been accomplished by. It seemed like the age I would get to work.

    I think I imagined I'd have done something great by the time I was 40.

    Missed that mark. Not really expecting anything by 50 at this point. I think I've accepted mediocrity. I just want to watch my movies and read my comics, and retire comfortably.

    To give this film 5 stars is more tautological than meaningful. I consider it the best action film simply because I judge all other action films in relation to this. This is, in a true sense, the canonical action film. Sometimes people put things in a film canon if they are great films or must-watch films. But the word should really be reserved for those films against which others are measured. This is my vote for the canonical action film.…

    Travelling Salesman

    ★★★★½

    A travelling salesman has a list of cities to visit and then wants to return home. Is it possible for him to find the shortest route that lets him do this?


    I don't know if people still use that "meets" thing, but describing this films as Primer meets 12 Angry Men seems quite apt.

    The latter because the entire movie is basically 5 people sitting around a table getting angry with each other. The main difference between the two is…
