JOJO RABBIT

Taika Waititi is definitely one of the more interesting filmmakers working today. On the surface, his movies seem pretty standard, but he has a certain wit and sarcasm to his material that he competently melds with drama and characterization. The Hunt for the Wilderpeople was one of my favorite films […]

THE LIGHTHOUSE

The VVitch: A New England Folktale was not only the best horror film of 2016, but I firmly believe it’s the best horror film of the decade, and one of the best of all time. Especially as a debut film, it was masterfully crafted by Robert Eggers, filling us […]

KNIVES OUT

Oh, Rian Johnson… my man! I have no shame in saying I love this guy. His visual style, his fun ideas, understanding of tone, his interesting stories, excellent casting, his personality, and most of all, his constant subversion of expectations. There’s a very vocal minority of people […]

THE IRISHMAN

Martin Scorsese. Robert De Niro. Al Pacino. Joe Pesci. Those four names all equal one word: legendary. Scorsese was instrumental in bringing back the auteur, studio-be-damned method of filmmaking in the 1970’s. Unlike almost every other director from that era, he’s still pumping out hits, no matter […]

PILGRIM

Holiday slasher films are basically as old as the genre itself. Black Christmas was one of the first slashers ever, which inspired films like New Year’s Evil, My Bloody Valentine, April Fool’s Day, Silent Night, Deadly Night, and the granddaddy of them all, John Carpenter’s Halloween. There are loads of them, but hey, holidays […]

FROZEN II

I’m a 28-year-old man who unashamedly loves Frozen. For the first time in forever (sorry), an animated Disney film actually felt fresh and interesting. Were the classic story elements and obligatory songs still there? Of course, but there was this air of snarkiness to how Frozen treated the classic Disney formula. It struck that perfect balance of taking […]

EL CAMINO: A BREAKING BAD MOVIE

When Breaking Bad initially ended and the spin-off series Better Call Saul was announced, everybody thought that’s all we would see of Vince Gilligan’s iconic universe. I certainly never expected a feature film, especially one that’s a sequel that shows what happened to Jesse after originally driving off into the night. […]

FORD V FERRARI

Subject matter definitely plays a huge part into what movies people choose to watch and that makes sense. Why would you try to get invested in something, or entertain yourself, if you’re not interested in it? You already don’t care and you’re not going to anytime soon. […]

DOCTOR SLEEP

Some stories just don’t need sequels… Scratch that. Most stories just don’t need sequels. The entire point of someone telling a story is that it has an ending. A point it was trying to make. We’re not supposed to follow characters for their whole lives, but just a glimpse […]

TERMINATOR: DARK FATE

The first two Terminator films are examples of movies that are simply some of the best in their genre. The Terminator is one of the best horror films of all time, with Terminator 2: Judgment Day being one of the best action films. They’re simply classics, but that never stops sequels from being […]
