For the Love of Film...

Welcome to my review website. I love movies, and here’s the place I talk about them. You’ll find my ratings, on a scale of zero to five stars, in all of my posts. For each film, I’ve written either a full critique, which is a longer piece; a compact review, which is usually just a paragraph; or a quick take, which is only a sentence or two. I also post articles about the world of cinema on my film blog.

In the Comments section on each page, feel free to share your own thoughts and feelings about the films discussed here.

Lights! Camera! Action!

(500) Days of Summer

(500) Days of Summer

An unconventional little film, (500) Days of Summer is carried largely by its quirky screenplay and a fine performance by lead actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. One of the better romantic comedies, especially since it plays against the usual tropes of that genre. Funny, poignant, and believable. One of the better films of 2009.
