Post Episode 40: Going Full Fassbender
Seriously, no week has ever set itself up for a title better than this one. What can I say? The actor aims high with his roles, except in Shame, where he aimed low, if you catch my drift. Three more movies locked and loaded.

12 Years a Slave-- ***1/2
All is Lost-- ***
The Counselor-- **1/2

EDIT: Argh, I've never waffled on a movie rating so much in my life.

Year Standings

1. PR0METHEU5: 61.0

12 Years a Slave is a definite four-star film in my mind. You can argue (and some critics I know have) that it does for slavery in the Antebellum South what Schindler's List did for the Holocaust.

Wow. That's a bold statement. Its my most anticipated film for the rest of the year.

Correct me if I'm wrong, though, but wasn't 2003 the last time that James handed out three 4-star reviews? I'd love to see it happen again.

Schindler's List is probably the more all-encompassing view of its particular tragedy (partly because it's a longer movie), but I'm referring to how both movies present the horrors and mistreatment for what they are. Very little in the way of traditional "entertainment" value or emotional manipulation. Certainly no Django-style revenge moments. More to come when JB reviews the movie.

And yup, it was 2003. He gave out five in 2001! I bet that never happens again. But as long as we have more than one **** film, the stakes are raised for the Top 10 minigame.
