HONEY BOY

One of the earliest things an aspiring writer learns is “write what you know”. If you have a firm grasp on a subject, it’s a lot easier to create a story out of it. It’s not so easy when you’re coming in blind and needing to do […]

UNDERWATER

Derivative. It’s a word people often use when they’re criticizing a film, and it makes sense. When a lot of stuff in a film is stuff you’ve seen before, especially many times, it’s much harder to be invested because you can often see where the story is […]

LITTLE WOMEN (2019)

Some stories are simply timeless. No matter how old they are, their themes, stories, and characters transcend time, universally relatable to anyone at any time.

JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a massive surprise for both the moviegoing public and Columbia Pictures. As it should, a sequel to Jumanji was met with skepticism when it was announced, and it reeked of desperation from Sony to repurpose any IP they own to make a quick buck. […]
