SORRY TO BOTHER YOU

Satire is a tough thing to manage, especially when you’re looking through it all with an absurdly comedic lens. When you’re satirizing serious issues, such as race relations in the United States, your tone can either go full on ridiculous with it, or full on serious with it. Satire […]

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. This also allows for some great stories to be told, whether it’s about the person losing their […]

MANDY

“Style over substance.” It’s a catchy criticism often attributed to more artsy, avant-garde films that like to focus more on visuals, mood, and atmosphere, as opposed to conventional story and characterization.

THE PREDATOR

The Predator is probably the coolest movie monster ever made. Designed by the legendary Stan Winston and his company, it’s a marvel in prosthetic special effects and alien design. The dreadlocks, the armor, the “vagina mouth”. Everything about it oozes with disgusting creativity. It’s not just the design either, […]

PEPPERMINT

When I watch a revenge movie, I simply want one thing: the protagonist to get their revenge. Seems like a pretty simple thing for the filmmaker to accomplish, right? Well, not lately. Over the past few years, I’ve felt a little bit blue balled by genre. They […]

SHOW DOGS

Everybody has different tastes when it comes to film. Some only like action films. Some only like character driven dramas. Some, like me, love all types. There aren’t a whole lot of people who love bad movies, though. However, I have one particular friend who adores bad […]

BlacKkKlansman

Some movies have a point they’re trying to make, some don’t at all. Some have some deep themes they want to explore, while some just want to entertain. What you always need, though, is a good story. Without a good story to latch onto, there’s not much […]

MILE 22

I admit that I can be a bit of a hypocrite sometimes. One of my biggest annoyances with a vast majority of the general movie going audience is that they want to see a movie because of “all the stars that are in it.” I’m a big […]
