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 […]

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

There seems to be this bizarre train of thought amongst my age demographic (millennials who grew up in the 1990’s) that the film Jumanji is a “classic”. It’s a perfectly fine adventure film with good performances, fun action setpieces, and visual effects that have aged as well as a glass of iced […]

THE DISASTER ARTIST

What’s there to say about Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 masterpiece The Room that hasn’t already been said? Simply put, it’s the greatest bad film ever made. In a more complicated way, it’s The Godfather of terrible filmmaking. Completely inept in every single way. A hilariously pathetic attempt by a man with a gigantic ego […]

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI

Characterization is a tricky thing, because it’s not just about how well the character is written, but also about how well that character is portrayed. When you have humanized, perfectly developed characters, you need the right actors to bring them to life. Not somebody who simply matches their physical […]
