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 […]

LITTLE WOMEN (2019)

Some stories are simply timeless. No matter how old they are, their themes, stories, and characters transcend time, universally relatable to anyone at any time. What comes with timeless stories, though, are loads of adaptations. Theater, film, television, radio plays. Everybody wants to put their own spin […]

WAVES

What are a lot of the great drama films out there primarily known for? The story and the characters, which is what it’s all about. However, they’re also movies, so storytelling shouldn’t just be done through dialogue, but through visuals. When you just have a lot of […]

UNCUT GEMS

Oh, Adam Sandler. He may just be one of the most frustrating talents working in Hollywood. He’s seems like a genuinely nice guy, but he just shows up in so much garbage. A lot of the garbage is produced by him and stars his friends like Kevin […]

DOCTOR SLEEP

Some stories just don’t need sequels… Scratch that. Most stories just don’t need sequels. The entire point of someone telling a story is that it has an ending. A point it was trying to make. We’re not supposed to follow characters for their whole lives, but just a glimpse […]

JOKER

I’ve commented before about how while a majority of comic book films are decent, they all feel exactly the same. Just superheroes going up against a big bad and punching each other. The only time I’ve ever felt the comic book film genre be transcended was The Dark Knight, which isn’t a […]
