THE POLKA KING

Here we go again. Another film “based on a true story”, but this time it’s not a drama, or some political thriller. It’s a goofball comedy. Comedies based off true stories don’t often work for me, as the comedy is often way too over the top and unrealistic, […]

MOLLY’S GAME

Screenwriting and directing are two completely different beasts. Writing a great screenplay requires an immense amount of craft and skill, but it’s a different kind of skill than what directing requires. Writing a good story is writing a good story, but actually bringing it to life visually with cameras, actors, […]

2017 – YEAR IN REVIEW

Another year has come and gone, which of course means there were a lot of films to see. A lot of great ones, a lot of terrible ones, a lot of average ones. It’s just like any year, so just like any year, I have a list […]

THE FLORIDA PROJECT

Ah, don’t you remember the joy of being a child? You had hardly a care in the world, only wanting to have fun and explore the world that seemed so huge and colorful. No matter what horrible things may have surrounded us, such as poverty, death, abuse and […]

INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY

Back in 2011, the creators of two of the biggest modern horror franchises, Saw and Paranormal Activity, teamed up to give us a whole new horror film… that really fell flat on its face. Yes, I’m talking about Insidious. It’s a shame, because I think the first hour of Insidious is one of the best modern horror […]

DARKEST HOUR

I’m pretty sure that Gary Oldman is my favorite actor ever. No matter the project, whether it’s being directed by Francis Ford Coppola or by some hack, the man always gives it his all. His all is never terrible, though. Even in the worst films, he can sometimes be that one […]

LADY BIRD

As much as I love strong character work in film, it’s sometimes difficult for me to be invested if there’s not much of a narrative to go along with it. This is especially evident in coming of age films. For me, coming of age films mostly need two key things […]

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

There seems to be this bizarre train of thought amongst my age demographic (millennials who grew up in the 1990’s) that the film Jumanji is a “classic”. It’s a perfectly fine adventure film with good performances, fun action setpieces, and visual effects that have aged as well as a glass of iced […]

STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII: THE LAST JEDI

When talking about movies, I sometimes get the question, “Hunter, do you like Star Wars?” Well, that’s a pretty easy answer. I like good movies, and some of the Star Wars movies are good, and some of them not so much. I genuinely love A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, which […]

THE DISASTER ARTIST

What’s there to say about Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 masterpiece The Room that hasn’t already been said? Simply put, it’s the greatest bad film ever made. In a more complicated way, it’s The Godfather of terrible filmmaking. Completely inept in every single way. A hilariously pathetic attempt by a man with a gigantic ego […]
