SORRY TO BOTHER YOU

Satire is a tough thing to manage, especially when you’re looking through it all with an absurdly comedic lens. When you’re satirizing serious issues, such as race relations in the United States, your tone can either go full on ridiculous with it, or full on serious with it. Satire […]

GAME NIGHT

Just like anybody else on the planet, my sense of humor is incredibly specific. I’m not really sure what I find funny exactly, but if I laugh, I laugh. For instance, broad, over the top comedies where the characters find themselves in increasingly precarious situations aren’t really for […]

SHOW DOGS

Everybody has different tastes when it comes to film. Some only like action films. Some only like character driven dramas. Some, like me, love all types. There aren’t a whole lot of people who love bad movies, though. However, I have one particular friend who adores bad […]

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 […]

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 […]

TAG

As a character from the best animated show of all time, BoJack Horseman, once said, “You paid $50,000 to a bunch of kindergartners for the movie rights to the name Tag!” If there’s one thing nobody in the world ever thought would get a movie “adaptation”, it’s of the game tag. The most surprising thing […]

INCREDIBLES 2

Superhero and comic book films sure are such a big drag nowadays aren’t they? Sure, you get the occasional outlier like The Dark Knight or Logan that breaks the mold, but for the most part, they all feel the same. This is exactly how people felt back in 2004 during the start of the […]

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 […]
