Schindler’s List (1993): The Story of an Unconventional Hero

Schindler’s List is about the saddest movie ever assembled and arguably Steven Spielberg’s best achievement in directing. Spielberg plants you right into 1943 Poland during the Holocaust when the sky was saturated with the ashes of the innocent victims of the Nazi agenda and evil lurked in nearly every corner of this ailing configuration of […]

Quickie: Blackfish (2013)

F*** SeaWorld. I’ve grown content ever since I stopped going to and stopped supporting the insensitive endeavors of SeaWorld after watching the overwhelmingly stirring documentary, The Cove, which uncovered the dolphin captivities and genocides that often occurred in Japan which were mainly conducted to gain illegal food goods and sales to big business amusement park […]

Synecdoche, New York (2008): This Century’s Most Ambitious Movie Yet

My brain is mush right now. I ought to think things over before I write a review on this.   Fast-forward a few days later. Charlie Kaufman’s Synecdoche, New York is a gut-wrenching examination of something, something, and something. Are you lost? Well, let me help you out. This is a movie that is a dependent creation […]

A Review of Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)

Warning: Minor Spoilers The Royal Tenenbaums is a movie made by Wes Anderson. The Royal Tenenbaums has the best ensemble cast of characters out of any other Wes Anderson movie. These characters include:  🏋🏻‍ Ben Stiller starring as a P90X Ben Stiller, Chas Tenenbaum. 🎭 Gwyneth Paltrow starring as the emo, gloomy, adopted, 9-fingered brotherf*****, […]

Christopher Nolan’s Inception (2010): Mentioning the Few Flaws in an Otherwise, Marvelous Brainteaser

4th Viewing  Inception, to this day, is still one of, if not, the most intricately planned out, and layered story(s) I’ve ever bargained to observe. Christopher Nolan has always been a monstrous hawk when it comes to detail, specifically within the establishment of his most famed, mind-perplexing narratives.  While Inception is without a doubt, personally, […]

Quickie: Masaki Kobayashi’s Harakiri (1962)

Harakiri is about two hours and fourteen minutes of uncontaminated mystery/ suspense-driven domination. This samurai classic capers abroad its tale unlike anything else in cinematic existence, bleeding its reveals through evoking flashbacks, heated, verbal narratives, and hairsplitting symbolic portraits.  I didn’t expect Harakiri to be such a bold stance on the hypocritical flaws hidden among […]

Happy Death Day 2U is Quite Repetitive (Literally and Figuratively)

I have very fond memories of my juvenile involvement in going to see the first Happy Death Day back during my terminal moments of High School. I won’t get too into the details of it all but let’s just say, alliances were formed, some (maybe) trivial illegal transactions materialized, and many parents were furious. But […]

Quickie: Roman Polanski’s The Pianist (2002)

Roman Polanski’s, The Pianist, is a dynamically momentous true-story narrative about, Wladyslaw Szpilman, a man with a sensational musical forte persisting his way through times of loss, resentment, treachery, and deprivation. The intuition seized within this film is able to make its few, meager moments of glamour shine endlessly into its viewers’ minds.  All though, […]

Alita: Battle Angel: A Visual Feast of CGI Dottiness

From the man who granted us the 21st Century’s Casablanca—AKA, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl—comes a deliberately anime-persuaded frenzy of crisp awesomeness that is unfortunately held down by its inconveniently spattered storyline structures. Alita: Battle Angel highlights visually some of the most—if not, the most—muscle-fueled, groundbreaking CGI action segments ever—a produce often typified within projects […]

Blue Valentine (2010): The Most Realistically Portrayed Love Story of All-Time

You’re damn right I saw this depressing, go-to currently single person’s movie on Valentines Day! Derek Cianfrance—an underrated big fish of a director + writer swimming in a vast pool of oversold, featureless present-decade creators—furnishes us with the most down-to-earth romantic allegory ever concocted. Blue Valentine is a lugubrious insight into the likelihood of safeguarding love, […]
