ISLE OF DOGS

I’m gonna have to come clean here: I honestly don’t really care for Wes Anderson. I admire his creativity, his unique visual style, and deadpan humor, but often times with him, it’s just too much. It’s too dry, too deadpan, and too visually obnoxious. I love weird and bizarre […]

READY PLAYER ONE

I really hate nostalgia. That doesn’t mean I don’t understand why people get nostalgic. It makes perfect sense for people to lament about the good things in their past that are no longer around. I get nostalgic about things too. Nostalgia doesn’t do much other than impede […]

UNSANE

Over the last century, the basics of filmmaking have remained rather unchanged. You need a camera, some actors to be in front of it, some lights to light your actors, crew members to assist in various ways, and so on and so forth. While the basics are […]

PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING

Oh, giant monster movies. You gotta love ’em, right? Who doesn’t enjoy a good rock ’em, sock ’em time between two gigantic beings in a big city? I know I sure do. I grew up watching the old Godzilla films, all while playing with my toy Godzilla and King Ghidorah, making them fight […]

THOROUGHBREDS

If there’s one emotion a lot of people don’t like to feel while watching a movie, or just in general, it’s feeling uncomfortable. Nobody wants to feel that way. We watch movies to escape and make us feel good, right? Well, some do. I love a feel-good movie as […]

That’s the key, but not often the case. You’re obviously not going to get any thematic depth from any of […]

TOMB RAIDER

Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of my favorite films of all time. It may actually be my favorite film overall, but sometimes it’s hard to pick. It’s just a 100% pitch perfect action adventure film, though. It’s exciting, tense, brutal, dramatic, and overall, just plain fun. […]

DEATH WISH (2018)

Revenge movies are my jam, but what really requires a film centered around revenge to work? Well, it helps to see the protagonist get back at all the people who wronged him in the most brutal ways possible. That’s key. What matters most, though, is believing in the reason for revenge […]

THE POST

What would we do without the free press? Well, we’d certainly be a lot less annoyed as a nation. More importantly, though, we wouldn’t be informed and know what’s going on in the world. We rely on the work of relentless journalists and researchers in order to know […]

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME

I love great drama films as much I love great films from any other genre. Like any other genre, though, it isn’t without its pitfalls. I love drama, but I hate melodrama. Many people watch movies to transport themselves into another world, drama usually being the closest […]
