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 […]

DEADPOOL 2

While it was nothing truly spectacular, I found Deadpool to be one of the most enjoyable comic book films of the past few years. Deadpool’s humor isn’t really for everyone, me included, but I enjoyed it’s irreverent and satirical take on the current state of comic book films. Sure, the plot […]

ISLE OF DOGS

I’m gonna have to come clean here: I honestly don’t really care for Wes Anderson. I admire his creativity, his unique visual style, and deadpan humor, but often times with him, it’s just too much. It’s too dry, too deadpan, and too visually obnoxious. I love weird and bizarre […]

THOROUGHBREDS

If there’s one emotion a lot of people don’t like to feel while watching a movie, or just in general, it’s feeling uncomfortable. Nobody wants to feel that way. We watch movies to escape and make us feel good, right? Well, some do. I love a feel-good movie as […]

THE POLKA KING

Here we go again. Another film “based on a true story”, but this time it’s not a drama, or some political thriller. It’s a goofball comedy. Comedies based off true stories don’t often work for me, as the comedy is often way too over the top and unrealistic, […]

PHANTOM THREAD

This is going to come off as a bit shocking, and rightfully so, but I have an awful confession to make: I have never seen a Paul Thomas Anderson film. I know, I know. I’m a terrible person. Boogie Nights, Magnolia, There Will Be Blood and others […]

LADY BIRD

As much as I love strong character work in film, it’s sometimes difficult for me to be invested if there’s not much of a narrative to go along with it. This is especially evident in coming of age films. For me, coming of age films mostly need two key things […]
