THOR: RAGNAROK

Whenever a new film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) comes out and a director with a distinct voice and style is attached, people always hype it up that this one is “finally going to be different”. Here we have a new Thor film, with New Zealander Taika Waititi, a comedy director known for his witty and highly absurd humor, […]

JIGSAW

Not all good films are the same, nor do they all strive for the same goals. That’s why genres exist. A good horror film is not the same as a good drama film. You don’t go into a horror film expecting developed characters, great acting, or thematic depth. You go into one to hopefully be […]

SAW FRANCHISE

There are a lot of different things that can be said about the Saw films. They’re gratuitously gory. A lot of the dialogue is bad, with some of the acting being even worse. They’re completely humorless and joyless. They have an incredibly intricate storyline and plot. The […]

THE SNOWMAN

There are a lot of experiences that can come out of watching a terrible film. It could be so ineptly made, that you can’t help but laugh at the low quality. It could be so boring and dull, that you don’t even care what’s happening on the screen. It […]

HAPPY DEATH DAY

Is there such thing as a completely original idea anymore? I don’t really think so. Humans have been telling stories ever since we’ve been able to speak, so it’s not a surprise that we run into some familiarities here and there. Every type of story has been […]

BLADE RUNNER 2049

I like the final cut (the only version I’ve seen) of Blade Runner. I don’t exactly love it, nor hold it up on the sci-fi masterpiece pedestal like some do, but I recognize its impact. It has a wonderfully immersive atmosphere and world, while being a masterwork of practical effects, quite possibly the pinnacle achievement in that field. However, […]

AMERICAN MADE

American history has a lot of untold facets that are begging to be explored and shared with its citizens. A big one of those is our good ol’ friends at Central Intelligence, and all of the shady, clandestine activities they performed, and most likely still are performing […]

Oh, symbolism. It’s a tool that every artist uses to some extent, but like any tool, it all depends on the person who uses it. When it comes to film, symbolism can be used in a multitude of ways, from representing a character’s state of mind, to making an […]

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

Some genres as we know them are effectively dead, or at the very least, on life support. Every now and then, a genre film will be released in order to rejuvenate those feelings that old Hollywood used to give us. While they’re fun, we realize why these […]

BRIGSBY BEAR

Comedy comes in many different forms, many that I find very amusing. I have a very bizarre sense of humor. I really like absurdity, surrealism, dryness, satire, and a whole bunch of categories of different comedy. It’s why I can never really pinpoint what I really find […]
