ARRIVAL

I’m not really the biggest fan of science fiction. While yeah, I like stuff like Star Wars, those don’t really fall into the “hard sc-fi” category, such as Star Trek or 2001: A Space Odyssey. It’s a very broad genre that mixes with a lot of others, making […]

HACKSAW RIDGE

He’s baaaaaaaaaaaaack! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. America’s sweetheart Mel Gibson is back behind the camera after a decade long hiatus and he’s better than ever. After his drunken tirade in 2006 caused his stardom to spiral downward, we all thought we had seen the end of […]

DOCTOR STRANGE

Another six months, another Marvel movie. With five TV series, five short films, and now on their fourteenth feature, it’s been nearly impossible to escape from the phenomenon. With such a huge variety of talent that’s been utilized over the years, their projects have largely ranged in […]

THE ACCOUNTANT

Ben Affleck has been making a nice little comeback the past few years. Ever since he made his directorial debut in 2007 with Gone Baby Gone and won Argo the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2013, his trajectory as a director has been going nowhere but up. However, […]

OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL

Completely studio driven horror films are usually nothing but trash. I don’t think one person in the world was begging for a follow-up to 2014’s allegedly awful Ouija. It did make a lot of money, though, so of course Universal was quick to get a sequel, or […]

JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK

I love Tom Cruise. I think he’s an absolute crazy person, but as an actor and movie star, he’s always a treat to watch. Sure, he may be somewhat typecast as “Tom Cruise action man”, but the guy oozes so much charisma and charm, you can’t take […]

THE BIRTH OF A NATION

Making a film about an iconic historical figure is like walking on thin ice. That ice is even thinner, and the water even deeper, when that certain figure is looked at with a degree of controversy. Obviously, it depends on the filmmaker and their intention, but in […]

MASTERMINDS

Sometimes comedy films are tough to review, especially when you don’t like them. It’s somewhat hard to elaborate on why something just isn’t funny. Comedy is the most subjective of genres, so what others find funny, I may find absolutely grating. Based on a true story (my […]

THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (2016)

I’m ashamed to admit that I have not seen the original 1960 The Magnificent Seven. I’m even more ashamed to admit that I have also not seen Seven Samurai, the 1953 Japanese film the old Western is based off. I understand that they’re both iconic films, each […]

GOAT

I don’t understand fraternities and their hazing. I really don’t. Dehumanizing and humiliating others as some sort of “rite of passage” is completely baffling to me. It’s even more baffling that these impressionable kids will put themselves through it in order to just gain some sort of […]
