There are few things that can ruin an artist quite like ego. After any success, it’s logical to be excited about your abilities getting validated and moving onto the next best thing. Ego is like a poisonous well, though. Every time an artist goes back to drink […]

MISS BALA

Boring films are the worst kind because whether it be good or bad, a film should above all be memorable. Even if it’s marred by poor acting, direction, and everything else, that can all potentially make for an entertaining and memorable experience. Those are the best kinds of […]

SERENITY

DISCLAIMER: This review contains massive spoilers for Serenity, as it’s impossible to talk about why it’s so bad without getting into the details. You’ve been warned, but you probably don’t care to see it anyway, as it bombed terribly. Anyway, here we go. Ahhhhh, the glory of […]

GLASS

Now that everybody is clear on what it’s all about (and if you don’t know and get mad about this, it’s really your fault), I can finally talk more about M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. I wasn’t a big fan of it, and a big reason why was during […]

IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK

2018 – YEAR IN REVIEW

I’m sure the number will only increase next year, but 2018 is now my new record for over 70 films reviewed. While I have seen more films than the last two years, this year has unfortunately felt much weaker than those. Don’t get me wrong. Just like […]

ESCAPE ROOM

Happy New Year, everybody! Well, at least it is a happy new year for a few days until that first Friday… that first Friday when a movie studio dumps whatever film they’re too embarrassed to release at any other time of the year. Oh, yes, it’s the Dump Month of January, […]

BUMBLEBEE

Michael Bay’s Transformers series is probably the worst blockbuster franchise of all time. I don’t mean that as hyperbole either. I hate those films, but so do a lot of other people. They’re constantly ravaged by critics and as the diminishing box office returns have shown, even audiences are getting sick […]

BLACK MIRROR: BANDERSNATCH

With video games being the one and only exception, experiencing art is a completely passive activity, with no actual impact on the art coming from the person being entertained. When we watch a movie, we’re not consulted about how the story goes, or what decisions the characters […]
