PARASITE

WARNING: This review contains spoilers for Parasite, as it’s one of those films that’s difficult to really talk about without spoiling. Read at your own risk!      Ever since the start of last decade, films that have satirized and commented on the current state of wealth inequality and classism have been […]

MARRIAGE STORY

While I do love films that are just about “real life”, there are times where the reality of it can be overbearing, especially depending on the subject matter. The prime example for me is Judd Apatow’s This is 40. Well-acted and with developed characters, sure, but I felt […]

HONEY BOY

One of the earliest things an aspiring writer learns is “write what you know”. If you have a firm grasp on a subject, it’s a lot easier to create a story out of it. It’s not so easy when you’re coming in blind and needing to do […]

JOJO RABBIT

Taika Waititi is definitely one of the more interesting filmmakers working today. On the surface, his movies seem pretty standard, but he has a certain wit and sarcasm to his material that he competently melds with drama and characterization. The Hunt for the Wilderpeople was one of my favorite films […]

THE LIGHTHOUSE

The VVitch: A New England Folktale was not only the best horror film of 2016, but I firmly believe it’s the best horror film of the decade, and one of the best of all time. Especially as a debut film, it was masterfully crafted by Robert Eggers, filling us […]

FORD V FERRARI

Subject matter definitely plays a huge part into what movies people choose to watch and that makes sense. Why would you try to get invested in something, or entertain yourself, if you’re not interested in it? You already don’t care and you’re not going to anytime soon. […]
