RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET

It’s hard not to be cynical about sequels, because more often than not, they’re just not necessary. The reason stories have endings is because it’s just that: they ended. The story is over and the characters journeys have been completed. Of course, this doesn’t stop studios from wanting […]

CREED II

I’m sure I deserve a hundred lashes or something awful for what I’m about to admit. Up until last week, I had never seen any of the Rocky films. Yes, for the longest time, I had never seen one of the most popular American movie series ever. While I […]

THE BALLAD OF BUSTER SCRUGGS

The Coen Brothers are some of my favorite filmmakers ever, but that’s certainly not an unpopular opinion amongst film aficionados. The funny thing is, as much as I love them, they’re pretty hit and miss for me. Their misses aren’t big ones, though. I’m usually lukewarm on those, but […]

When making a film, worldbuilding can be an incredible tool. Whether it’s completely grounded in reality, totally fantastical, or somewhere in between, thoughtful worldbuilding can make a movie feel alive.

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 […]

SUSPIRIA (2018)

Depending on who you speak to, movie remakes can be considered the bane of the Hollywood machine. What’s the point of telling a story that’s already been told, especially if it’s been told numerous times? It’s usually an idea from some vapid studio head who just wants to […]

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY

Queen is one of my favorite bands that I don’t really know all that much about. I’ve never listened to a full album, nor really did a lot of research on them. I just listen to a lot of classic rock radio and whenever they come on, […]

Mid90s

Ah, the joys (a relative term here, I’m sure) of growing up. Trying to figure out who you really were, all while trying to fit in and mold yourself into anything just to find some sort of acceptance. Getting angry at your parents for wanting the best […]
