58. Spring Breakers (B-)

Harmony Korine's "experiment in not repulsing audiences", as the AV Club put it, is a reasonably amusing parody of modern hedonism and amorality. It drew headlines for involving former Disney stars like Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, but they at least picked an artistically interesting (if not entirely successful) vehicle for trying to 'act out' (compare it to the recent Miley Cyrus performance at the VMAs).

59. Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (A-)

Speaking of misuse of Disney property.

It's amazing that this film ever got made, and I somehow suspect that Zemeckis would never succeed in wrangling the rights loose today to include all the Disney and WB characters. The film is a marvel, technically, even if it does look a bit dated now. Hoskins does a great job, particularly given that he's essentially pioneering green-screen acting well before it became common in Hollywood.

Cinema: 20 (+1)
