BREAKING IN

As much as I love a film that has an engrossing story and deep characterization, I love silly schlock just as much. I have no biases when it comes to film. Drama, horror, comedy, science fiction, porn, action, thriller, you name it. A good film is a good […]

BEST F(R)IENDS: VOLUME ONE

Who doesn’t love Tommy Wiseau’s trashterpiece The Room? Considered by many “the best bad movie ever made”, the reason why is because of the sheer amount of passion that went into it. Passion doesn’t really mean a whole lot, if you don’t have the talent to back it up, though. The Room is evidence of that, […]

BLACK PANTHER

My biggest problem with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), and with a lot of blockbuster filmmaking in general, is that it’s all so cold and calculated. Films that should be exhilarating and exciting are instead micromanaged and focused grouped to death, stifling creativity and resulting in bland end products. Sure, MCU films […]

BLADE RUNNER 2049

I like the final cut (the only version I’ve seen) of Blade Runner. I don’t exactly love it, nor hold it up on the sci-fi masterpiece pedestal like some do, but I recognize its impact. It has a wonderfully immersive atmosphere and world, while being a masterwork of practical effects, quite possibly the pinnacle achievement in that field. However, […]

BRIGSBY BEAR

Comedy comes in many different forms, many that I find very amusing. I have a very bizarre sense of humor. I really like absurdity, surrealism, dryness, satire, and a whole bunch of categories of different comedy. It’s why I can never really pinpoint what I really find […]

THE BIG SICK

Ah, romantic comedies. No other genre fills people with so much naïve hope and then with eventual heartbreak and realization. They often feel very phony, with two stars with hardly any chemistry both serving up a predictable and safe plot, with hardly an realism or consequence. Sure, […]

BABY DRIVER

Car chases are awesome. There’s simply no doubt about that. I don’t know what it is, but watching somebody so skilled behind the wheel perform incredible (and often dangerous) stunts is so exhilarating. They’re a staple of action cinema. Edgar Wright is also awesome. He’s a smart […]

BAYWATCH

Remember the 21 Jump Street film and how it had absolutely no right to be as good as it was? I do, because it’s probably my favorite comedy of the decade. What started off as an embarrassing cash grab attempt turned out to be a clever, biting satire on […]

THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER

Satanic horror films are certainly never in short supply. There are always going to be folks that don’t care for a masked killer, but bring a demon into the mix? Well, then it’s the most horrifying thing ever. It’s the horror people have been cowering in fear from […]

THE BIRTH OF A NATION

Making a film about an iconic historical figure is like walking on thin ice. That ice is even thinner, and the water even deeper, when that certain figure is looked at with a degree of controversy. Obviously, it depends on the filmmaker and their intention, but in […]
