FIRST MAN

What are movies for, exactly? Well, like any other artform, they’re meant to tell stories. Most of those stories are fictional, but many also find themselves inspired by true events. The thing is, truth is often stranger than fiction. Reading the Wikipedia article or listening to an […]

SUSPIRIA (2018)

Depending on who you speak to, movie remakes can be considered the bane of the Hollywood machine. What’s the point of telling a story that’s already been told, especially if it’s been told numerous times? It’s usually an idea from some vapid studio head who just wants to […]

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY

Queen is one of my favorite bands that I don’t really know all that much about. I’ve never listened to a full album, nor really did a lot of research on them. I just listen to a lot of classic rock radio and whenever they come on, […]

Mid90s

Ah, the joys (a relative term here, I’m sure) of growing up. Trying to figure out who you really were, all while trying to fit in and mold yourself into anything just to find some sort of acceptance. Getting angry at your parents for wanting the best […]

APOSTLE

Filmmakers usually get into filmmaking because they love movies and because those movies they loved had a huge impact on them. More often than not, you notice the influences in their work, with camerawork, editing, or direction clearly reminiscent of their idols. Some of them master their craft in their genre […]

NIGHT SCHOOL

I’m not really a big fan of his, but there’s certainly no debate that Kevin Hart is an absolute megastar. Not only is he currently one of the most popular standup comedians around, but he’s crafted quite an impressive film and television career too. Now, he’s gone onto […]
