New filmmaking careers are always exciting to watch, especially when they have a debut that’s so strong. Look no further than Jordan Peele, who won an Academy Award for this debut screenplay that was Get Out. He already had a lot of experience in comedy with MadTV and Key & […]

FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY

While I do find it amusing overall, I’m not really a wrestling fan, or really a big fan of any sport. My closest connection to the sport is through my older brother watching WWF and then him performing the various moves on me. To be honest, I […]

THE FAVOURITE

Since I’m just a simple American, I couldn’t be asked to care even one iota about the British Royal family. I find monarchies to be incredibly antiquated and practically useless now, especially to me, as they don’t have much effect over here. That doesn’t mean their history […]

GREEN BOOK

You know those quaint little movies from the 90’s like Forrest Gump? Excellent film, no doubt, but as a story that covers a man’s life through decades of American history, it all felt a little bit too sanitized and optimistic for its own good. It deals with such […]

HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U

I’ve talked about sequels and their effects of diminishing returns many times before. It’s rare that sequels are better than the original, but it does happen. What’s even more rare is when a sequel completely abandons the conventions and genre that was established before. Evil Dead II is one […]

ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL

I’m absolutely unbiased when it comes to MPAA ratings. I love Toy Story as much as I love Die Hard. It just matters how it serves the overall film. I’d rather the MPAA not exist at all, but they’re here to stay and filmmakers are left at their whim. Luckily, […]

SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE

Since filmmaking has been around for over 100 years, it’s quite difficult for one to be considered “groundbreaking” anymore. Sure, technology and techniques are always evolving and improving, but unless it truly shows something we’ve never seen before, does it really earn the word? I would say […]

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET

It’s hard not to be cynical about sequels, because more often than not, they’re just not necessary. The reason stories have endings is because it’s just that: they ended. The story is over and the characters journeys have been completed. Of course, this doesn’t stop studios from wanting […]
