ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL

While story is probably the most important ingredient that goes into making a great film, that doesn’t mean that the technological aspects of the artform should be ignored. Films tell stories, but so do books. There’s a whole world of technology that goes into filmmaking that’s been […]

AQUAMAN

Ever since Batman Begins in 2005, comic book films have followed a trend of taking themselves a little bit too seriously. It’s perfectly fine for some of them to do so, as some of  their respective source material is dark and gritty, or dabbled in those tones before. It […]

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 […]

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP

The first Ant-Man was the perfect definition of a “fine” movie. It wasn’t great, and it wasn’t bad. It was just fine, and while it was just fine, it ended up being one of the more enjoyable films in the MCU for me. The fact that it was rather irreverent and […]

The Avengers was a film that really shouldn’t have worked, but much to everybody’s surprise, it did.

AMERICAN ASSASSIN

*sniff sniff* You smell that? What is that awful stench? Wait… I think I see something coming over the horizon!  Oh, it’s the dump month that we call September! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, as the summer movie season comes to a close, the studios start dumping their more forgettable […]

ANNABELLE: CREATION

In 2013, modern master of horror James Wan gave us The Conjuring. Its positive reception and massive box office success started a new renaissance of horror films being taken seriously again from audiences and critic alike. While I think the films are kind of overrated, especially the […]

ATOMIC BLONDE

Ever since John Wick came out of nowhere to blow everybody away back in 2014, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the next projects from directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski. Stahelski went on to make John Wick: Chapter 2, delivering one of the best action film sequels of all time (and my […]
