BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE

Actors. What would we do without them? If we didn’t have vain people wanting to put themselves in front of the camera for our amusement, then we wouldn’t have film and television. However, their job is to act. With some exceptions, they’re not there to write, direct, […]

APOSTLE

Filmmakers usually get into filmmaking because they love movies and because those movies they loved had a huge impact on them. More often than not, you notice the influences in their work, with camerawork, editing, or direction clearly reminiscent of their idols. Some of them master their craft in their genre […]

NIGHT SCHOOL

I’m not really a big fan of his, but there’s certainly no debate that Kevin Hart is an absolute megastar. Not only is he currently one of the most popular standup comedians around, but he’s crafted quite an impressive film and television career too. Now, he’s gone onto […]

VENOM

Sony, aka Columbia Pictures, just might be the most embarrassing and shameless of the Big Six movie studios. They used to be on top of the comic book movie game with their original Spider-Man films, but ever since the massive success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), they’ve been playing […]

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 […]

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. While I find the criticism a bit too simplistic and unfair when it comes to judging films, […]

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, […]

YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE

Film is no doubt a visual medium where the filmmakers are supposed to tell the story in the most logical visual way possible. However, dialogue and audio in film were created for a reason. They allow our characters to more naturally interact with each other and divulge […]

GAME NIGHT

Just like anybody else on the planet, my sense of humor is incredibly specific. I’m not really sure what I find funny exactly, but if I laugh, I laugh. For instance, broad, over the top comedies where the characters find themselves in increasingly precarious situations aren’t really for […]
