Mid90s

Ah, the joys (a relative term here, I’m sure) of growing up. Trying to figure out who you really were, all while trying to fit in and mold yourself into anything just to find some sort of acceptance. Getting angry at your parents for wanting the best […]

THE SISTERS BROTHERS

While I’ve discussed before that just because a film has good actors doesn’t automatically make it good, there are definitely times where the right actors in the right roles can elevate everything else around them. Sometimes the plot can be slow moving, underdeveloped, or just not there […]

THE NIGHT COMES FOR US

Whenever a movie comes out that a lot of people describe as “non-stop action”, they’re usually exaggerating. There’s certainly some action throughout, but it rarely ever meets the definition of “non-stop”, as the pace is usually broken up by dialogue and plot developments. The dialogue and plot […]

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 […]

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 […]

FIRST REFORMED

I’m not a religious man, but I’ve always found religion fascinating, especially people’s relationships to it. Since it’s something many people hold very dear to them, it allows for some very in depth exploration into their psyche.
