BRIGSBY BEAR

Comedy comes in many different forms, many that I find very amusing. I have a very bizarre sense of humor. I really like absurdity, surrealism, dryness, satire, and a whole bunch of categories of different comedy. It’s why I can never really pinpoint what I really find […]

WIND RIVER

One of my favorite things to do as a lover of film is keep track of the careers of budding artists. Taylor Sheridan is one of those artists. Starting out as a television actor in the 90’s, he moved onto bigger roles in popular shows like Veronica […]

INGRID GOES WEST

I love films about crazy people. They provide a vessel for us to experience stories that bring us out of our comfort zone, sometimes making us root for the chaos that’s happening on screen. It also allows for actors to break out of their mold, try something […]

COLOSSAL

We certainly don’t get enough kaiju films. Everybody needs their form of escapism, and those are mine. Enough with the comic book films! Bring on the monsters! I get why they don’t work for everyone, though. They usually lack strong stories, or notable characters; the monsters themselves […]

POWER RANGERS

I don’t really have any nostalgia for the Power Rangers. It’s strange, since it’s a show I often watched as a young child and owned a lot of toys of, but I never kept much interest in it beyond that. I really only liked watching the big […]

RAW

Blood and guts are disgusting, not scary. Jump scares are startling, not scary. I’m very particular when it comes to horror films. Great gore effects and a well executed jump scare can be effective, but they’ve been so poorly overdone to the point where the effect has […]
