Movie Reviews

This page includes links to every movie review I’ve posted on Panorama of the Mountains. For a more complete list of every movie I remember watching, check out my Letterboxd profile including my list of films watched and  statistics.

My ranking system for movies I’ve watched and reviewed:

5 stars – all-time classic (I’m very stingy with these)
4 stars – a particularly interesting, well-done, or important movie
3 stars – a good, solid movie from start to finish
2 stars – not a good movie on the whole but has some good parts
1 star or fewer – basically a bad movie with no redeeming values
