BRIGHTBURN

James Gunn has sort of made a name for himself by making somewhat subervisive genre films with a clever edge. Slither with the horror genre, Super! with the superhero genre, and Guardians of the Galaxy with the comic book genre. He loves genre fare and with his newfound clout in the industry and all that Guardians money, […]

BUMBLEBEE

Michael Bay’s Transformers series is probably the worst blockbuster franchise of all time. I don’t mean that as hyperbole either. I hate those films, but so do a lot of other people. They’re constantly ravaged by critics and as the diminishing box office returns have shown, even audiences are getting sick […]

BLACK MIRROR: BANDERSNATCH

With video games being the one and only exception, experiencing art is a completely passive activity, with no actual impact on the art coming from the person being entertained. When we watch a movie, we’re not consulted about how the story goes, or what decisions the characters […]

BOY ERASED

I’m usually disinterested in a film when it claims to be “based on a true story” as it’s just a cheap marketing ploy, but when you get something based off a memoir, then you have my attention. When you’re taking the words directly from the person, it’s […]

THE BALLAD OF BUSTER SCRUGGS

The Coen Brothers are some of my favorite filmmakers ever, but that’s certainly not an unpopular opinion amongst film aficionados. The funny thing is, as much as I love them, they’re pretty hit and miss for me. Their misses aren’t big ones, though. I’m usually lukewarm on those, but […]

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, […]

BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE

Actors. What would we do without them? If we didn’t have vain people wanting to put themselves in front of the camera for our amusement, then we wouldn’t have film and television. However, their job is to act. With some exceptions, they’re not there to write, direct, […]

BlacKkKlansman

Some movies have a point they’re trying to make, some don’t at all. Some have some deep themes they want to explore, while some just want to entertain. What you always need, though, is a good story. Without a good story to latch onto, there’s not much […]

BLINDSPOTTING

Like I said in my Mission: Impossible: Fallout review, a lot of different genres (in that case, action films) get panned for quite unfair reasons. For example, a comedy and a horror film strive to do two completely different things and make you feel two polar opposite emotions. Sometimes […]

BLOCKERS

Teen comedies can be difficult to fully connect to if you’re not a teen. Adult comedies can be difficult to fully connect to if you’re not an adult. There are just different life experiences that one or the other are going through, sometimes making it hard to […]
