GLASS

Now that everybody is clear on what it’s all about (and if you don’t know and get mad about this, it’s really your fault), I can finally talk more about M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. I wasn’t a big fan of it, and a big reason why was during […]

IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK

I consider Moonlight to be the best drama of this decade so far, and with how huge of an impact it had on me, it basically gave writer/director Barry Jenkins carte blanche to do whatever he wanted in my mind. However, when a filmmaker makes such a strong debut, […]

REPLICAS

With Escape Room kicking off the 2019 film year, I was surprised that the first film of January ended up being not so terrible. I commented it could possibly be an omen for a good year to come, but who was I kidding? Of course it wouldn’t last! Not only a […]

2018 – YEAR IN REVIEW

I’m sure the number will only increase next year, but 2018 is now my new record for over 70 films reviewed. While I have seen more films than the last two years, this year has unfortunately felt much weaker than those. Don’t get me wrong. Just like […]

ESCAPE ROOM

Happy New Year, everybody! Well, at least it is a happy new year for a few days until that first Friday… that first Friday when a movie studio dumps whatever film they’re too embarrassed to release at any other time of the year. Oh, yes, it’s the Dump Month of January, […]

BUMBLEBEE

Michael Bay’s Transformers series is probably the worst blockbuster franchise of all time. I don’t mean that as hyperbole either. I hate those films, but so do a lot of other people. They’re constantly ravaged by critics and as the diminishing box office returns have shown, even audiences are getting sick […]

BLACK MIRROR: BANDERSNATCH

With video games being the one and only exception, experiencing art is a completely passive activity, with no actual impact on the art coming from the person being entertained. When we watch a movie, we’re not consulted about how the story goes, or what decisions the characters […]

BOY ERASED

I’m usually disinterested in a film when it claims to be “based on a true story” as it’s just a cheap marketing ploy, but when you get something based off a memoir, then you have my attention. When you’re taking the words directly from the person, it’s […]

AQUAMAN

Ever since Batman Begins in 2005, comic book films have followed a trend of taking themselves a little bit too seriously. It’s perfectly fine for some of them to do so, as some of  their respective source material is dark and gritty, or dabbled in those tones before. It […]

ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL

I’m absolutely unbiased when it comes to MPAA ratings. I love Toy Story as much as I love Die Hard. It just matters how it serves the overall film. I’d rather the MPAA not exist at all, but they’re here to stay and filmmakers are left at their whim. Luckily, […]
