FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD

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. It’s great joining characters on their journey, but it’s even more exciting when we’re experiencing a whole […]

THE HATE U GIVE

It seems like every year there’s a specific social issue that a lot of filmmakers (or vapid studio heads just following trends) want to focus on. Last year seemed to be the theme of “sticking it to the oppressors”, with popular films like Darkest Hour, The Greatest Showman, and The […]

HALLOWEEN (2018)

I don’t know if I have exactly one single film as my favorite of all time, but I certainly have plenty that I would consider my favorites. John Carpenter’s Halloween is one of those films. First seeing it when I was only 10 years old, it had a massive […]
