Whether it’s completely grounded in reality, totally fantastical, or somewhere in between, thoughtful worldbuilding can make a movie feel alive. It’s great joining characters on their journey, but it’s even more exciting when we’re experiencing a whole […]

FIRST MAN

What are movies for, exactly? Well, like any other artform, they’re meant to tell stories. Most of those stories are fictional, but many also find themselves inspired by true events. The thing is, truth is often stranger than fiction. Reading the Wikipedia article or listening to an […]

FIRST REFORMED

I’m not a religious man, but I’ve always found religion fascinating, especially people’s relationships to it. Since it’s something many people hold very dear to them, it allows for some very in depth exploration into their psyche.

FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

Nothing can ever just be left alone anymore. Once the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 released in 2011, we all thought the franchise would be laid to rest. Not on J.K. Rowling’s watch. After her attempts at writing more mature fiction yielded lukewarm […]
