Movies I did like

with some short comments. I take no responsibility for comments being the same from day to day. These pages contain spoilers. Turn back now if you want!

Some things that will probably make me like a movie: smooth pacing (not necessarily fast), well done special effects (that is, effects that look like what they're supposed to be instead of effects), maintaining self-consistency, getting technical details right, strong characterization (even if it's a bad character), artful or technically pretty cinematography, Sam Raimi, the Coen brothers, Terry Gilliam, Ralph Fiennes, Johnny Depp, Bruce Campbell (Xena notwithstanding), Famke Janssen, Gina Gershon.
